From the 18th century into the early years of the 19th, Americans - traveling to find new homes and new lands - crossed the Appalachian Mountains and moved across the Northwest Territory, spreading west to the banks of the great river. Using the lore and folk-magic of the men and women who settled a continent, and the beliefs of the tribes who were there before them, Orson Scott Card has created an alternate frontier America.

When Alvin arrives in Hatrack River to take up his apprenticeship with Makepeace Smith and learn to be a blacksmith, he finds that nothing is as he expected. This would-be maker is on his own and the work of the Unmaker is close at hand.

    " Alvin Miller discovers he has incredible powers for creating and shaping things around him.

    A recurring and main theme of the books is the conflict between Creators and Destroyers—namely, Making such as Alvin does, and Unmaking that he confronts. "

    " I just couldn't face another one. The religious parallels got just to sickeningly blatant. "

    " The third and so far the best in the Alvin Maker series. I couldn't help reflecting on my own baptism experience as Alvin remakes Arthur. This is some brilliant writing and storytelling. "

    " I almost didn't get past the first chapter of this book but it did get better. If it wasn't part of a series, I wouldn't have bothered, but I'm still intrigued by Card's use of symbolism and LDS references in trying to create an American mythology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carina | 1/20/2011

    " Nice story. Orson Scott Card is a great storyteller. Historial fiction style with a magical twist "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susanne | 1/12/2011

    " This one was harder to read than the others. Some hard to read scenes of gore and rape. Still a really great story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evan | 12/16/2010

    " great story, as always I enjoyed Card's character development. Took some unexpected turns but it was all the more exciting for it. Really interested in the rest of the series. "

    " awesome. osc writes always so good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 10/30/2010

    " This was nice. Card has such a lovely way with the colloquialism of the world he has created in Tales of Alvin Maker. Touching on African magic along with the magic of the Maker, Card writes a very philosophical story with Bunyanesque overtones in his tale of the iniquities of slavery.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony | 10/10/2010

    " Worth reading. Not as good as 7th Son, and not nearly as good as Red Prophet. For some reason OSC seems obsessed with breasts in this book; I'm not sure what to make of that. "
