Young Gav can remember the page of a book after seeing it once, and, inexplicably, he sometimes "remembers" things that are going to happen in the future. As a loyal slave, he must keep these powers secret, but when a terrible tragedy occurs, Gav, blinded by grief, flees the only world he has ever known. And in what becomes a treacherous journey for freedom, Gav's greatest test of all is facing his powers so that he can come to understand himself and finally find a true home. Includes maps.

It is not a fast read. That said, I like the way that each place in which Gavir found himself (Arcan, the Forest, and the Marshes) was an excellent example of how people use and misuse power.

The concept is okay, and the imagery is there, but honestly I found it rather boring.

Freedom is largely a matter of seeing that there are alternatives.

"Young slave Gavir, stolen as a baby from the marsh tribes, has been educated by his tribe. Gav responds with deep loyalty, but after a horrific betrayal, he flees, repudiating every aspect of his tribe and seeeking to reconnect with his native people. Tension provided by a slave catcher's pursuit creates thriller intensity. Told with shimmering lyricism, this coming of a saga will leave readers as transformed by the power of words as is Gav himself, who ultimately has a lifeline that tugs him toward a spiritual homecoming." (Novelist Review)
