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 in "The Gate Thief," a novel of the Mither Mages.

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."

In this middling sequel to The Lost Gate, Card connects Egyptian myth with his “literalizing of Indo-European gods” to create Danny North, the 16-year-old incarnation of the messenger/trickster god Thoth-Mercury-Hermes-Loki. Danny masquerades as an ordinary teen but is the son of the Norse gods Odin and Gerd. He’s just coming into his full powers as a gate mage when some of the old gods set out to kill him. He’s also so filled with “innate goodness” that he can fend off all the hot girls who want him and subdue his own adolescent hormones. Naturally, he takes on the task of saving Earth and defeating the forces of evil through a heroic act that’s devoid of real consequences. Card’s afterword reveals his struggles with clarifying his unusual and highly complicated world-building, but only the most devoted readers will have sympathy for these creative problems. (Mar.)
