“Orson Scott Card's talent for writing simply enough for a younger audience to enjoy but complex enough to captivate an older one as well is on display in Pathfinder, a story about Rigg, a young, gifted boy whose father's sudden death starts him on a journey of discovery. The journey leads Rigg to discover who he really is and the secret origin of the world in which he lives. Pathfinder is a great read for anybody with a love for science fiction.”
— Curtis Bunton, Ravenous Reader, Charleston, SC
Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg's strange talent for seeing the paths of people's pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him secrets about Rigg's own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain. Rigg's birthright sets him on a path that leaves him caught between two factions, one that wants him crowned and one that wants him dead. He will be forced to question everything he thinks he knows, choose who to trust, and push the limits of his talent . . . or forfeit control of his destiny.
