Description

The saga of Alvin Maker, set in an alternative version of the American frontier country, continues, in a tale full of folklore and magic.

Young Alvin returns to the town of his birth and begins his apprenticeship with Makepeace Smith, committing seven years of his life in exchange for the skills and knowledge of a blacksmith. But Alvin must also learn to control and use his own talent, that of a Maker, or else his destiny will be unfulfilled.

Commentaires

"The most important work of American fantasy since Stephen Donaldson's original Thomas covenant trilogy." ( Chicago Sun-Times)
"A beguiling book...[a] robust but reflective blend of folktale, history, parable and personal-testimony pioneer narrative. The series promises to be a story of deep delight." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Card's epic tale of a magical, alternate America demonstrates his skill in graceful storytelling. Recommended, along with Seventh Son and Red Prophet, for most fantasy collections." ( Library Journal)

Fun story with a great cast!

Story is a little slower then the first two books but has some big character building moments for Alvin. Card does a good job of letting the reader/listener learn with Alvin and see that he dosen't know everything right from the get go. He helps paint him as more then just a normal straight laced hero type character he makes some bad calls and even spiteful ones but they really help develop the character.

Weird but addictive

Any additional comments?

This series is super weird, but somehow just leaves me wanting more every time. Excellent reading of this strange tale by a great cast.

Orson Scott card has taken what was already an amazing story and brought it to a new level by adding the dynamics of a small hometown five.

Writing like I've never had the chance to read

Card writes with detail that I've never before seen in fiction writing. The characters which he creates are realistic and, made transparent through the eyes of the reader, become relatable in a way not available in other fantasy/fiction novels.

Wondering if I should go on

Would you try another book from Orson Scott Card and/or Full Cast?

I have listened to several books by Scott Card, I am a fantasy junkie.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

this series sounded promising when I started book one, but with each book I wonder if I should continue. The books get more and more preachy

Excellent!

I absolutely love all of Card's works, but so far, the Tales of Alvin are my favorite. I devour every word and marvel at how this seemingly living story could have possibly come from the mind and imagination of a man. I can't wait to find out how Alvin's world comes together! Excellent read.
