it was amazing
bookshelves: you-re-a-wizard-kid

A truly interesting story with a very compelling protagonist. Danny North lives in a family of Mages. Unfortunately for Danny he doesn't have any powers. At least not that he's noticed. Then one day he miraculously discovers his gift. Sadly it is the one gift that his family has sworn to kill whoever possess it. Danny is a gatemage. A teleporter capable of going where wherever he wants whenever he wants. Now he finds himself alone in the world, on the run from his own parents.

I loved the action and the magic system, but most of all Danny's utter loneliness tugged at my emotions and I cheered for Danny with each member of his new patchwork family of Orphans that he stitches together.

The story reminded me of Jumper By:Steven Gould(a book about another teleporter who finds himself alone in the world) and any one who liked that book will most certainly like this one.
