Veramente un bel fantasy con un pizzico di fantascienza. Scritto bene e con personaggi accattivanti. E' il primo di una trilogia, come al solito si va con la speranza che traducano anche gli altri. ( )

Very hard to put down! Excellent character development and story telling captured my attention immediately and made me care about what happened, even though some of the time travel theory is a little far-fetched. But, it made me think, "is that really possible?" ( )

Typical of Card's style (monotone characters and preachy narrative), but an imaginative take on time-travel as a paranormal psychic ability. Advanced juniors could read it. ( )

Amazing. ( )

When your world gets filled with whiny, angsty, self-doubting, touchy-feely men", then read this for a young man, more of a boy, who is one of those characters of self-reliance, assured and doubt-less.

It is really refreshing to read about characters like this once in a while. Provides a nice granite bedrock for the changable waves of most fiction.

Lots of timetravel blabber, medieval era society, and hints of what humanity might become.

I skipped paragraphs at a time when time 'movement' was discussed and I don't feel any less for it. But for those who like the convoluted, they might just eat it up.

And I really like how the first couple of paragraphs of each chapter deal with the very beginning of mankind traveling to this planet." ( )

Book description
Acclaimed science fiction master Orson Scott Card makes his teen debut with this riveting original series! 
From the internationally bestselling author who brought us Ender’s Game, a brand-new series that instantly draws readers into the dystopian world of Rigg, a teenager who possesses a secret talent that allows him to see the paths of people’s pasts. Rigg’s only confidant is his father, whose sudden death leaves Rigg completely alone, aside from a sister he’s never met. But a chance encounter with Umbo, another teen with a special talent, reveals a startling new aspect to Rigg’s abilities, compelling him to reevaluate everything he’s ever known. Rigg and Umbo join forces and embark on a quest to find Rigg’s sister and discover the true depth and significance of their powers. Because although the pair can change the past, the future is anything but certain….
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141699176X, Hardcover)

A powerful secret. A dangerous path.

Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg's strange talent for seeing the paths of people's pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him--secrets about Rigg's own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

Rigg’s birthright sets him on a path that leaves him caught between two factions, one that wants him crowned and one that wants him dead. He will be forced to question everything he thinks he knows, choose who to trust, and push the limits of his talent…or forfeit control of his destiny.
