Publisher's Summary

Young Alvin was born the seventh son of a seventh son. By his birthright, he possesses magical powers and is destined to become something great, perhaps even a Maker. Indeed, Alvin is special. But the boy remains vulnerable to dark forces who reach out to destroy him and are willing to do anything to keep him from growing up. Carefully weaving the lore and the 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. This is the first installment in the Tales of Alvin Maker.

Souther accent clases

This books feels like English souther accent clases, with a narrator that goes from a tone os voice so low that you'll be pushing the headphones into your ears to her her, an a second later holding them five inches from your ear so the new tone of her voice does not leave you death.
If, like I, you are looking for a good quality story, and the the fact that this book has the same author as Ender's Game and Speaker of the Dead, you are looking in the wrong place, this story is full of hot air, after 6 hours, you can sumirize what happend in 5 minutes, I mean it, the story is so descriptive that you'll find you'll often be too busy trying to build an image of a place instead of keeping up with the story, and then the place that took you so much time to imagine, turns out to be irrelevant; not good.

I heard that the narrator was bad, but I was desperate for a book (long flight), she is not bad, she just needs a volume gauge in front of her next time she does a reading; it is really unconfortable, I ended up with headaches many times... the book is not worth the pain
