The sequel to The Lost Gate (2010) finds teenager Danny North confronting the consequences of his actions at the end of that book. He’s rendered the being formerly known as Loki virtually powerless, having taken most of Loki’s gates—wormholes in spacetime that link places that are separated by vast distances—and created the Great Gate, allowing people to pass back and forth between Earth and Westil, the home world of the former gods now living on Earth as (mostly) ordinary people. But is Danny a hero, or has he opened a door that will allow an even more powerful being to slip through and reignite an ancient war that could wipe out humanity entirely? And can Danny really trust that the enemy he vanquished in The Lost Gate is now his willing ally? Familiarity with The Lost Gate is useful, but not essential, as Card gives readers enough background to have at least a partial understanding of the world he’s created. Like the first book, this one’s a bit talky in places, but it boasts defined characters and a highly imaginative story. For the author’s fans, a must-read. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: As one of the biggrst names in science fiction, Card has a built-in audience clamoring for more. --David Pitt
Mr. Card is giving a kind of tour of fantasy possibilities while integrating them into his intricately imagined system of magic. One of the system's charms is that it explains such a lot: what ghosts are (the fading "outselves" that mages can project), what fairies are (playful creations that mages make from trash, plants and petals), and why all Indo-European gods have such strong family resemblances. The hints of real history behind the families are especially enticing: I look forward to learning more. (The Wall Street Journal on The Lost Gate)See all Editorial Reviews
I wanted to read this because I really liked the Ender's series, but oh my god, this is a sappy teenage novel with so much teenage romantic drama in it. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Rebecca

The story and the characters get richer and much more fully developed. You can, in some way, relate to the characters and that drags you deeper into Mittelwelt. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Rick Mahoney
The second installment is as excellent as the first. With plot twists that are truly shocking. I have read thousands upon thousands of books, and some twists evidently I saw... Read morePublished 28 days ago by Matthew Van Allen
i am new to Mr. Card's writings. I like the first book in the series, but this book was a let down. Too much of an undertone of sex. The ending was very week. Read morePublished 1 month ago by N. Zobell
Although this book is not as good as Book 1 in this series it is alright. My main problem with this book is that it was filled with way too much unnecessary sexual content. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jay Jex
