Seventh Son, the first tale of Alvin Maker, introduces us to a pioneer America where magic works, and special talents are utilized in marvelous ways. In Red Prophet, the second installment in the Tales of Alvin Maker, we learn more about those talents, both the minor gifts of white people (starting fires, finding water) or the much grander gifts of the Indians, whose lives are filled with a beautiful green music. Young Alvin Maker, the seventh son of a seventh son, is a Maker. Lolla-Wossiky, an Indian whose fate is closely linked with Alvin's, has heard black noise in his head since he watched white men murder his father. Unable to hear the green music he needs to live well, Lolla-Wossiky lives only for the alcohol that stills the black noise - until he meets Alvin.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kriste | 2/11/2014

    " Another in the Alvin Maker series. The first 3 books are the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 2/4/2014

    " Seventh Son is still my favorite of this author, and this series but I can't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cuinn | 2/2/2014

    " The Alvin Series is an interesting idea of an alternate history where all the settlers of America have a knack, aka unique magical ability. Alvin is a Maker, the ultimate power and has a destiny to fulfill. This series is interesting showing as much action as deep thinking. A good series to get you thinking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evan | 1/24/2014

    " Pretty Good story. developing the characters nicely "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 1/16/2014

    " Very slow beginning. Hard to stay interested. But the last half came close to making the first half worth it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Timilyn | 1/13/2014

    " The first book in the series intrigued me, and I had to read all the others. As I mention in other reviews of books in this series, it's not my favorite "world" by Card, but it has it's own magic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candice | 1/9/2014

    " An alternate history of the Americas - if magic worked. Napolean was a character in this one and I enjoyed the author's take on how he charmed people so easily. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 1/6/2014

    " Makes me wonder how much is based on true events - life in the US/Canada in frontier days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 12/28/2013

    " A second volume that's better than the first ... we get deeper in the workings of this alternate America, with a story both tragic and heartening. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kira | 12/26/2013

    " This is an amazing book! It was just as good as the first one in the series. I love books by Orson Scott Card. I completely plan on reading the next one in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dave | 12/17/2013

    " On recommendation - I thought I'd give good 2 in the series a go (I plodded through book 1). Nope. Just as dull. Stopped about 4 chapters in. Blah blah blah. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emilyn | 12/17/2013

    " I loved it! Okay, okay, I'll admit, it was really boring at the beginning. But honestly, halfway through the chapter I was hooked till the end. Orsen Scott Card is a genius. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 10/16/2013

    " This one seemed a little more 'fantastical' and difficult for me to read. It felt awkward at times. But there is important information in it for the rest of the saga. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephen Cook | 6/10/2013

    " After Seventh Son, I was expecting more. I didn't manage to finish reading Red Prophet. I didn't find that same excitement that I've found in other OSC books, unfortunately. I just lost interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paige | 6/4/2013

    " This book was enjoyable enough. Not a must-read, but since I've started the series, I want to find out what happens! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 12/23/2012

    " The series that starts with Seventh Son goes on in all its American Pioneer Spirit glory. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Synesthesia | 10/17/2012

    " This is not my favourite in the series because it always feels like the plot of the book, the main one has been put aside for it. For some reason I like Prentice Alvin better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Brown | 4/17/2012

    " History with a magical twist! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 2/7/2012

    " Spaced on reviewing this. As it has now been several months seen I've read it I can't give a reliable review. I liked the series overall so I'm giving it a 3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ray | 10/12/2011

    " I read the first book in this series when I was 15 or so, and I tried to read this one time and again, yet couldn't get into it. Well, I finally got over that and I'm already to the 5th in the series. I love Card's work (though feel less positively about his politics/personal beliefs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 10/2/2011

    " Another good tale. Why do all Orson Scott Card series have battles between countries in them? I guess wars have to happen but it is sad to read about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerry | 8/16/2011

    " Some interesting views about Native Americans in this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Etta | 5/10/2011

    " Audio version. Faith gave 4 stars. Read the 1st in the series years ago.

    I enjoyed Card's storytelling of this fantasy tale of an alternative view of history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger | 4/25/2011

    " great series, original story in my opinion "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 3/30/2011

    " Another good tale. Why do all Orson Scott Card series have battles between countries in them? I guess wars have to happen but it is sad to read about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 3/29/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carina | 2/11/2011

    " Some very hearwrenching scenes in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 2/10/2011

    " This one seemed a little more 'fantastical' and difficult for me to read. It felt awkward at times. But there is important information in it for the rest of the saga. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 1/17/2011

    " This one was little slow on the pick up, but that's the way it goes sometimes with series. It was a little frustrating to wade through 70+ pages of new characters just to end up re-reading many of the events of the first book, but it was worth every single second by the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 1/12/2011

    " It was enough to get me to start the third but I felt it was a little to heavy on the "white man's guilt." Maybe I'm just sensitive because I'm a white man, I don't know. So far I'm not as impressed with this series as I was with Ender. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia | 1/2/2011

    " great continuation of the Alvin Maker series. I really want the next one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jon | 12/23/2010

    " Not as nice as the first book in the series. Too much alternate-history setting up for my liking, and too little character and magic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evan | 12/16/2010

    " Pretty Good story. developing the characters nicely "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renée | 11/28/2010

    " I adored Seventh Son, but so far, Red Prophet has yet to catch my attention. It's likely that the horrific stereotyping and bigotry oozing from every page has something to do with it. "
