From AudioFile:

The Valdemar fantasy series resumes. Past experience with the series is not essential for understanding this new offering but would provide useful background. In FOUNDATION, 13-year-old Mags, who is chosen by Dallen, a Companion, is rescued from the mine where he is a virtual slave. When he begins his schooling at the Collegium, he finds he has a lot of catching up to do. Nick Podehl uses a full-steam-ahead narrative pace. He develops the characters to show class and station effectively and with subtlety, and gives Mags the air of an innocent whose lack of experience helps to shield him from the elitism he encounters. His "mind speech" with Dallen is presented with slight reverberation. J.E.M. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
