In Gatefather, the third installment in the Mithermages series, New York Times bestselling author Orson Scott Card continues his fantastic tale of the Mages of Westil who live in exile on Earth.
Danny North is the first Gate Mage to be born on Earth in nearly 2000 years, or at least the first to survive to claim his power. Families of Westil in exile on Earth have had a treaty that required the death of any suspected Gate Mage. The wars between the Families had been terrible, until at last they realized it was their own survival in question. But a Gate Mage, one who could build a Great Gate back to Westil, would give his own Family a terrible advantage over all the others, and reignite the wars. So they all had to die. And if the Families didn't kill them, the Gate Thief would-that mysterious Mage who destroyed every Great Gate, and the Gate Mage, before it could be opened between Earth and Westil.
But Danny survived. And Danny battled the Gate Thief, and won.
What he didn't know at the time was that the Gate Thief had a very good reason for closing the Great Gates-and Danny has now fallen into the power of that great enemy of both Earth and Westil.

Loved the book...wasn't totally satisfied with how it ended so suddenly.
Cards religious factor.
Though Card tends to write books with a religious factor, this one book was the worst. Mc became the messiah. He backed himself into this ending in the previous book. The plot was mostly predictable. I also didn't like what the main character became personally.
A lecture within a series
Kind of disappointed with the third book, previous two were worth reading. This one seemed like it was chapters of lectures of how we as people are influenced into how we act and a way of thinking of how we became to be, then a quick ending to close the series out. Barely any progression of storyline chapter after chapter. Just had to read it to finish out the series.
