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.

Professional reviews

"Each narrator of this performance brings a vital element to the latest novel from Orson Scott Card, which follows the story of young Rigg, who possesses a talent for seeing other people's pasts. When Rigg's father dies, he must embark on a journey of discovery that will take him far outside the realms of his experience. In addition to Rigg's tale, we have the alternate story of Ram Odin, the pilot responsible for a starship full of colonists who are traveling to a new world. Each character--from the smoothly decisive Ram to Rigg's gravelly voiced father--is skillfully portrayed, making this listening experience a standout. K.O. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
