Saint Dane's influence has fueled the fire of discontent between two warring tribes: the Rokador and the Batu. This is also the territory where the Traveler Loor lives as a member of the Batu. Together she and Bobby must work to thwart Saint Dane's efforts to destroy Zadaa. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; But as Bobby pursues Saint Dane, he begins to notice changes in himself. He is no longer a flip kid looking for excitement. He is a young man beginning to see this quest as more than a series of adventures. He is also learning that as a Traveler, he had powers no normal human should have.

Shoshana, November 15, 2008 (view all comments by Shoshana)
This installment of the Pendragon series was somewhat slow and sloppy. I fear that because MacHale's writing improved, he is now being cut more slack by his editor. This volume was too long for the story being told, included more dubious science than has been the case in recent volumes, and suffered from the clunkier writing that characterized MacHale's earlier work. The plot works all right as long as the reader doesn't step back to ask questions or examine it from a different angle. If you're in mid-series, you'll probably like this well enough and will focus on the characters' growing self-awareness and identity concerns. These are the best aspects of the book, and bring some welcome character focus to the series. However, I doubt that picking up this book without having read the first five would inspire a reader want to start at the beginning, as it is not sufficiently compelling in either its craft or its story.
