I would have liked to have seen Taleswapper play a bigger role though the last two books and have added more in his own “book of tales” as it were, as it seems like it would made the plot seem more complete and less forced as he was there as a character at the qlvin-maker but didn’t seem to have much to add to the plot really.

Finally the end of the series. A well written book series. I don’t recall which book it was, but it was said of Alvin’s brother: There is no dramatic alvin-makker at all, just people going to different places, doing things, and having things happen to them. Interesting cocktail party image.

The series continues to have a lot to recommend it, and Card’s alternate history for many famous historical figures is also interesting. The analogy of the Exodus of the Hebrews crixtal Egypt was well done for the most part, and Alvin’s ongoing struggle to find his destiny as a Maker is very human. Read this series, it’s worth pa. He teams up with his old friend Tenskwa-Tawa, the Red Prophet, to lead 5, people out of slavery and into the promised land. Ever since I started this series and realized that it wasn’t finished.

However, there’s no possible way to talk about this book without giving away major spoilers for the rest of the series. But the contents of the visions described are of a alvkn-maker, not theological, character; and even the quotations above which Alvin himself doesn’t make, or endorsewhile they certainly express a kind of theological viewpoint, certainly don’t express one that’s recognizably Mormon –indeed, it ciydad much more characteristic of Low-church Protestant evangelicalism than of hierarchical, clergy- dominated Mormonism.

A people desperate for freedom, for inclusion and exclusion, from a terrible war brewing over slavery. I also think that through the last couple of books I kept expecting Taleswapper to show up and be a larger part of the story again since he was such a huge part of the stories at the begining of the alviin-maker and I was a little dissaopointed in how the author dragged him back in at the end as it seemed a bit forced just to wrap the story up and end it.

Dowsers find water, the second sight warns of dangers t Using the lore and the folk-magic of the men and women who settled North America, Orson Scott Card has created an alternate world where magic works, and where that magic has colored the entire history of the colonies.


But in this case I think characters both good and bad are much more shallow than we should expect of such a fine author. Originally posted at FanLit. It all started so well and then fizzled out at the end. Jul 17, Hannah Sunshineflower rated it it was ok.

Regardless, this was still very enjoyable to al as an alternate history to the US if we lived in a magical world. I think his crisgal on famous historical characters is often marvelous, as is his frequent twisting and borrowing of details from his Mormon tradition.

Alvin has been trying to avert the terrible war that his wife, Peggy, a torch of extraordinary power, has seen down the life-lines of every American. I’m having trouble pointing to anything that’s obviously bad– Card is, as always, a capable writer– but somehow the heart’s not in it.

Ellos pueden ver el futuro en una […]. And plotlines such as the relationship between Verily and Purity could have been profitably explored much more. Aug 19, Greg rated it liked it Shelves: He left huge gaps in his story, with major characters dropped and significant dramas unresolved.
