Description

Peggy is a Torch, able to see the fire burning in each person's heart. She can follow the paths of each person's future, and know each person's most intimate secrets. From the moment of Alvin Maker's birth, when the Unmaker first strove to kill him, she has protected him. Now they are married, and Peggy is a part of Alvin's heart as well as his life. But Alvin's destiny has taken them on separate journeys. Alvin has gone north into New England, where knacks are considered witchcraft and their use is punished with death. Peggy has been drawn south, to the British Crown Colonies and the court of King Arthur Stuart in exile. For she has seen a terrible future bloom in the heartfires of every person in America, a future of war and destruction. One slender path exists that leads through the bloodshed, and it is Peggy's quest to set the world on the path to peace.

Devilish evil characters, fantastic saves by good

What did you like best about this story?

I loved listening to Verily Cooper and his rhetoric. This book was very satisfying for me, I think it might have been the best of the series so far

Great Story Line

I thought with this being the fifth book, it could not keep my attention but I was wrong and pleasantly surprised!

The story will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. There was humor, suspense and shock as the characters began to grow in their nacks and adventures.

The only thing I thought could be better was the transition with the narrators. They would sometime switch in mid story which I thought was a little confusing and unnecessary. Otherwise, great book!

Great performance

I really do love Orson Scott card as a storyteller. And this cast did a superb job of bringing this book to life. I found myself making excuses to put off something else so that I could continue listening to the ongoing events at the moment in this novel.

Alvin Maker is my hero!

I can't get enough of this series - as is my truth with all the series by Orson Scott Card I've read thus far into my discovery of his limitless gift of writing. Captivating and endearing. I'm hooked.

Worst one so far...

This one was really slow, and nothing much that I cared about seemed to happen. Only bright spot for me was John Adams.

Not the best in the series.

I think Card did a good job developing the story and the characters that existed. I am not as happy with some of the characters he introduced and developed them; one in particular. It felt as though Card used her more as a plot device than a person of her design. she had flip flopping traits that would have been reasonable if not felt so contrived. The potential for organic change was present, but circumvented for unnecessary preluding. I still rather enjoy the world, series, and main characters and look forward to thr last book.
The reading was phenomenal, as usual.
