A complex fate. A deadly path. Book two in the New York Times bestselling series Publishers Weekly calls “an epic in the best sense.”

When Rigg and his friends crossed the Wall between the only world they knew and a world they could not imagine, he hoped he was leading them to safety. But the dangers in this new wallfold are more difficult to see. Rigg, Umbo, and Param know that they cannot trust the expendable, Vadesh—a machine shaped like a human, created to deceive—but they are no longer certain that they can even trust one another. But they will have little choice. Because although Rigg can decipher the paths of the past, he can’t yet see the horror that lies ahead: A destructive force with deadly intentions is hurtling toward Garden. If Rigg, Umbo, and Param can’t work together to alter the past, there will be no future.

     The adventure, suspense, and time travel continue in this second installment in the critically acclaimed New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestselling Pathfinder series.

I liked that this book is a combination of fantasy and science fiction. It had me gripped and I couldn't put it down. I was a little disappointed in how it ended, as it's hard to tell if the series will continue, but there were many questions left unanswered.

First, I would just like to say that I love Orsen Scott Card. I didn't enjoy Ruins as much as Pathfinders but I did enjoy the philosophical (sometimes paradoxical) discussions on the nature of truth and lies. Throughout most of the novel, I was annoyed with the constant bickering, and at how stupid, selfish and absurdly egotistical the three children were being but then I realized that they were merely being children. The characters themselves were more likeable in the first novel but more realistic in their flaws in this one. Overall, a good read.
