Critic reviews

"Suddenly the saga of Alvin Maker begins to thrill." ( Washington Post Book World)
"Set in an alternate world steeped in natural magic, this sequel to Seventh Son continues to demonstrate the author's love for American folklore. Recommended." ( Library Journal)
"Harsher, bleaker, and more mystical than Seventh Son, this novel superbly demonstrates Card's solid historical research, keen understanding of religious experience, and, most of all, his mastery of the art of storytelling." ( Booklist)
" Red Prophet is but a section of a vast American fantasy epic. It is vividly written, and the principal actors (Alvin, Ta-Kumsaw the Prophet, and Alvin's Gandalfesque mentor Taleswapper) are all complete and memorable characters." ( Philadelphia Inquirer)

I enjoyed this book very much. It has memorable characters and wonderful images as well as horrific yet put into a clear context.

Better than Seventh Son

This book is a step up from the first book of the series, "Seventh Son". Whereas the first book seemed to be setting the groundwork for the series and relating Alvin Makers origins, this book contained more story in its own right and was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. As with all OSC books, the atmosphere and feel of the book is beautifully crafted so you feel immersed in the alternative world. This is assisted by the excellent narration by a great team. This series is shaping up to be of comparable standard to the Enders Series. Highly recommended.

Who could believe

By the grace of some higher being I have been blessed by two great series from the same Author. Orson Scott Card has been the writer of my twenties and hopefully as I turn Thirty (two weeks from now) he will continue for another decade (at least). I started this unabridged version of Alvin Journey Maker mere minutes after finishing it's predecessor (the time it took me to jump to my laptop, search in Audible and pay for the @#$@ thing :) and with the sad knowledge that there was no unabridged book three. After a week of driving and listening, and driving for the sake of listening (and ignoring 'Husband' for the sake of listening) I finished this exquisite movie of characters and adventure to find that only five days before, the third book, Prentice Alvin, had been released.
So instead of telling you how great, wonderful, fantastic and interesting this book is (well DUH!) I'd like to send a message to the Author, and the narrators of this series (and the Ender series because thankfully you guys stick together). You are all brilliant (though I still can't tell you apart), your readers love you and Please Please Please continue the wonderful work.

Excellent character development

Felt like a rushed conclusion though. I Loved the analogies Card presented. looking forward to listening to the next one. The readers are superb.
