    This is the first book in a trilogy by Orson Scott Card, best known for his Ender's Game books.

    The Lost Gate focuses on a teenager named Danny, who finds out he has the ability to make small gates that he can travel between. Because this is a very rare and strong ability, this creates a rift in his family and he goes on the run. The book focuses on Danny's travels as well as the people he encounters, and his quest to find out about himself and his ability.

    The book starts off a bit slowly, but within a few chapters, the pace picks up quite a bit. Because this is set in the real world, I found it to be quite relatable, and many of the characters were unique and likeable. I did find that some of the writing was perhaps aimed at a slightly younger audience, which isn't a surprise considering the protagonist is quite young himself. Still, this is a good read if you're a fan of fantasy novels, and it has an interesting take on the different Norse Gods and what kinds of powers they may have had.
