Familiar and unique--a breath of fresh air
Card shows here that he has continued to hone his writing skills long after success first claimed him. While there are bits and pieces in the text that remind one strongly of the Alvin Maker series, the context is unique enough that it does not feel rehashed or redundant.
The story moves quickly and does not mire the reader in details. It is a light read, yet still manages to develop a couple of characters well enough to be engaging.
I was concerned as I neared the end of this book that the dangling loose ends would be left that way, given the small amount of time remaining to tie them. I was happily surprised to find that, while the resolution was brief, it was also comprehensive and did not feel hurried.
The narrator is expressive and pleasant to listen to. I only wish all of my money here on Audible was as well spent as on this book.

This book was extremely fun to listen to. Card has a way of developing his characters which allows the reader to be part of the story and want more.
