The Lost Gate by Orson Scott Card, 384 pages, read by Bryan, on 06/15/2014

hw7.plWhat if the Norse Gods were living among us?  What if all of the past gods were still around, trying to blend into their surroundings and watching for an opportunity to regain their status?  The Lost Gate is about Danny North, the son of Odin and Frea, and showed little magical abilities.  However, he soon learned that he could create gates, making him a Loki-like god.  Since gates are forbidden (the punishment is death), Danny goes into hiding and discovers others with abilities that the great god families do not know about.  The book concludes with a confrontation with The Gate Thief, who could strip Danny of his powers if victorious.  A good light read.
