A revised version of a book Card did early in his career, Treason was an interesting work, set in a future world where all traitors to the 'republic' had been banished to a desert planet (the sci-fi desert island) and have been left there indefinitely, until they discover ways to leave.

The protagonist comes from a family that had developed the ability to regenerate limbs (a nation of Wolverine's, with no crazy skeletons and more regenerative issues). Do to a deformity he is ostracized and spends the book traveling the entire planet and discovers secrets that no one else has known.

The book was, as a Card books, readable, fun and very interesting. The wanderings of the protagonist become a journey into manhood of sorts where he leaves forced to find himself and comes back the man he was meant to be. Not the best of Card's books, but if you are a fan of his writing, I would definitely recommend this one for your reading pleasure.
