Read an Exclusive Preview from Orson Scott Card’s The Lost Gate is happy to bring you an exclusive preview of Orson Scott Card’s The Lost Gate, the first book in Card’s new Mither Mages fantasy trilogy!

Learn what The Mither Mages is about from Tor Books editor Beth Meacham:

Card is creating not one magical world for this series, but two—an Earth where the exiles of Westil have lived in isolation for almost 1500 years, and Westil itself, also cut off from the power of the Great Gates, dwindling but holding the memory of a time when greater magic was possible. For this first book, the two worlds remain separate – but there is a promise implicit in the birth or rebirth of a gatemage in each world. It starts small, one boy in the hills of Virginia. It won’t stay that way.
