Though this book is fairly old for science fiction it is still very relevant. As well written as Card's Homecoming series. Lanik Mueller is a royal member of the Muellers, a nation on the planet Treason. The Muellers have the ability to instantly heal themselves, making them incredibly difficult to kill. Lanik becomes an outcast to the Muellers when his abilities mutate and make him a freak. He is forced to leave by his father and go on a mission to other nations that are warring with the Muellers.

Lanik discovers that the Muellers are not the only nation with unique abilities. Virtually, everywhere he travels he finds a people with a different ability and kind of like in a video game, he learns how to incorporate each of those powers into himself and starts to become a type of Superman.

He goes on to learn that there is a group of usurpers that are really ruling things and know all the secrets of planet Treason. Lanik must decide if he wants to risk everything he has learned to face up to the usurpers and restore Treason back to the people.
