Peggy Guester is a Torch, able to see the fire burning in each person's heart. Her power is so great that she can follow the paths of each person's future and know their most intimate secrets. From the moment of Alvin's birth, when the Unmaker first strove to kill him, he has been protected by her. Now they are married, and Peggy is part of Alvin's heart as well as his life. But their destinies have torn them apart: Alvin has gone North to New England, where knacks are considered witchcraft and their use is punished with death; on a quest for world peace, Peggy has gone south to the British Crown Colonies and the court of King Arthur Stuart. There she waits in exile, her life at risk in the hands of Alvin's younger brother Calvin, who has no intentions of showing her any brotherly love. This is the fifth installment of the Tales of Alvin Maker. Download and start listening now!

    " I enjoyed this book more than any other in the series since Seventh Son. I enjoy the courtroom drama Mr. Card cooked up. I'm a little concerned that he insists on dragging as many famous people into his alternate history as possible. Also, the beginnings of reconciliation between Alvin and Calvin is very good to see. "

    " 5th book in the Alivin Maker series. Pretty good! All about Alvin going east and getting tangled up with Quill the witch hunter and trying to legally abolish witch trials. Peggy is down south trying to abolish slavery without starting the Civil War. "

    " This series is starting to get a bit disappointing. In Heartfire, Calvin didn't quite make the waves that I hoped he would. Instead, Card produced another average book in the series that from start to finish makes little progress in the overall conflict. And the overall conflict seems mediocre at this point as well - the conflict is simply how Alvin will build the Crystal City someday. I understand that Card meant to write an American epic poem or something and that perhaps he succeeded. However, the flow of the story isn't much my style. I still plan to finish out the story, but I don't expect any surprises in the final two books. And at this point, I don't even expect the final book to ever be published... "

    " Sadly, the series gets duller and more off-track as it goes along. I've noticed that with Card's longer series. The first book grabs me with a bang, but it gradually goes south from there. The story slows down and he takes way too many side-tracks -- seems like he can't conclude. I'm not very excited about the next one, although it will be the last in the series. "
