Beautiful book! Perfectly written. Orson Scott Card is exceptionally versatile, this is a completely different book from any of the Eder's Game verse. The only thing that he keeps is the absolutely gripping plot line and fantastic pace. Definitely worth your time.
10/10 would recommend.
I loved this story! The narrators were wonderful and I was so determined not to miss a single word that I bought the book to read and then had to listen to the story all over again before I could bear to move on to a new story - wonderful
OSC is not reliable, I've been dissapointed here and there. But not this time. It's rather nicely done. I'd say it's close to Gaimon worthy with a little more reality built-in. It's a tale for an age where our history and past are a bit neglected. Not smushy in the tale sense either - a smart, mythical trip into magic for anyone. Meaning you dont' have to be a chic to carry it around the park eh?

Card deals with the Sleeping Beauty in a unique way in this book and it is definitely intriguing. This story jumps between the present and the 9th century and between Russia (before and after the fall of the Berlin wall) and the U.S. It blends magic and modern technology, has likeably flawed characters, and is, overall, extremely enjoyable.
