Having already read The Lost Gate, which I loved, I was excited to find this novella that set up some of the magic system used in the new Mithermage series. It wasn't as in depth as a full-length Card novel is, but true to form, the novella did a very good job at exploring some aspects of magery that were not touched on in The Lost Gate. Some parts of the story were a bit raw, trying to set up plot in too few pages, but these were minor hiccups in an overall very good short story. I love how Card used the growth of the character to teach the reader more about how this world works. I can't wait for more in the Mithermage series to come out!
