A sequel, ''Ruins'', was released on October 30th, 2012. Beware. This is an Orson Scott Card book, and so of course the plot gets very twisty. Even reading the trope example names could result in spoilage.

* AchillesHeel / AttackItsWeakPoint: [[spoiler:The queen's daughter, Param, can jump forward in time causing her to be invisible if she does it fast enough although this has the side effect of rapid aging. This lets her pass through walls, but the denser the object the more harder and painful it is. Thus the queen tries to capture her by sending soldiers swinging iron poles, which would hurt her too much to pass through.]] So not cool!

* {{Expy}}: The character of Rigg bears a strong resemblance to [[EndersGame Ender Wiggin]], due to their precocious intelligence and [[DeadpanSnarker snarkiness]].

* SignatureStyle: It's an OrsonScottCard book. Expect plenty of snarkiness from precocious children. Also, at the beginning of each chapter except the first is a short "header" telling a part of a side story.

''Pathfinder'' is a 2010 fantasy/sci-fi novel by OrsonScottCard. There are two parallel stories: The main plot concerns Rigg, a boy with the ability to see "paths" left behind by all living creatures when they move, and how he gets caught up in a political struggle for the fate of the known world. The second story deals with Ram, the pilot on a colony ship heading out from Earth to colonize a new world, equipped with an experimental [[SubspaceOrHyperspace hyperdrive,]] and his interactions with the ship's computers and the Expendables, a group of [[ArtificialHuman androids]] that interface with the computers and serve as advisers.
