The Gate Thief
"In this sequel to The Lost Gate, bestselling author Orson Scott Card continues his fantastic tale of the Mages of Westil who live in exile on Earth. Here on Earth, Danny North is still in high school, yet he holds in his heart and mind all the stolen outselves of thirteen centuries of gatemages. The Families still want to kill him if they can't control him...and they can't control him. He is far too powerful. And on Westil, Wad is now nearly powerless--he lost everything to Danny in their struggle. Even if he can survive the revenge of his enemies, he still must somehow make peace with the Gatemage Daniel North. For when Danny took that power from Loki, he also took the responsibility for the Great Gates. And when he comes face-to-face with the mages who call themselves Bel and Ishtoreth, he will come to understand just why Loki closed the gates all those centuries ago. "--

A little predictable, with its teenage angst, but an interesting concept with the ties to all the mythologies that we think of.

Hello, fellow fans of Orson Scott Card. I read this book, and I am here to warn you. This book is sexual, and as such I would suggest not reading it. Another good series is the Pathfinder and Ender's shadow.

I used to like this author, but I did not finish this book. I renewed it a half dozen times, and kept reading other books instead. I got several chapters in... but I just couldn't care enough to finish it. So, I blame the book! The first several chapters are deadly dull.
