G such a lucky number In addition to his birth order Alvin is born with a caul membrane over his face et another omen of a child destined for great deeds Card has pulled out all the stops and made Alvin into the special est snowflake that he possibly couldI have to say that the religiousness of the book s characters especially in the beginning was a bit off putting for me but by about half way through I had reached some kind of stasis and was enjoying the story However I found the ending rather abrupt At least there wasn t a cliff hanger but a reader wanting to know how things end will very obviously have to continue reading the seriesThis was book number 210 in my Science Fiction and Fantasy reading project Since uantum physics or a vague conception of it entered popular consciousness alternate worlds have become a staple of science fiction but the burgeoning of alternate worlds in which magic works has become a parallel movement in the fantasy genre Judging by this first installment Card s Tales of Alvin Maker series is a strong contribution to the latterSet in 1800 1810 in what would be in our world the Ohio and Indiana frontier this novel describes the birth and significant times in the oung childhood of Alvin Miller the uniuely gifted seventh son of a seventh son born into a frontier America in which the folk magic of our world s old superstitions actually works and plays a significant part in people s lives But this isn t the only difference between this world and ours Here Oliver Cromwell lived to be 97 so England s Puritan Commonwealth never fell while the exiled Stuarts emigrated to the Southern colonies and maintained their rule there While the Puritans in England were able to keep their grip on New England largely populated by their co religionists neither English group could dislodge the Dutch and the Swedes or the French from the New World so Alvin s America is a much polyglot and decentralized place than the real one Canada is still a French colony here and France is still a monarchy there was no French Revolution because there was no bloody American Revolution to inspire it Instead Ben Franklin was able to parlay the intrigues of the two English governments for influence in the middle colonies into acceptance of the peaceful formation of an independent United States as a buffer made up of the seaboard lands between Virginia and New England and uniting the former English Dutch and Swedish colonies and with the Irouois territory admitted as an Indian ruled state The American Compact excludes slavery provides for religious freedom and democracy and models an ethnic harmony that the one in our world didn t uite achieve so Card is here depicting an America that might have been as a model and inducement for a real one that could beThe author s cosmology is as original as his alternate history The universe he posits has a secret ultimate enemy the Unmaker unlike Satan who only wants to dominate it the Unmaker wants to annihilate everything that exists There are similarities here to the premise of Holly Lisle s Minerva Wakes with its cosmic struggle between the Unweaver and the human Weavers who stand against him but Card s vision is shaped by a theistic framework The Unmaker s human opponent is Alvin born to be a supernaturally powered Maker and oung Peg the torch or seeress who assisted at his birth recognizes in his and The Pious Ones young Peg the torch or seeress who assisted at his birth recognizes in his the hand of power of GodReligion plays a significant role in the book an important character is a clergyman Alvin s home community centers around a church his mother is a devout woman and an even important character is Bill Taleswapper Blake the William Blake of our world here an immigrant to the New World and an itinerant teller of tales but as mystically oriented and full ofearning to be a true prophet as his real world counterpart Card of course is a Mormon which undoubtedly influences his worldview some reviewers have seen the series as Mormon propaganda and it seems clear that Alvin is destined to play a role as pivotal here as Joseph Smith s in our world But from what I ve read so far it isn t clear that Alvin s religious message will be what we know as Mormonism The author s portrayal of some of the worst aspects of early 19th century institutionalized religion and of the capacity of decent people to be deceived into doing profoundly wrong things in the name of religion comes through loud and clear but this is a critiue that can also be echoed by evangelicals and Card s basically eualitarian treatment of women doesn t reflect traditional Mormon sexismThe uality of the writing the world building and characterizations here are all top notch Card s dialogue and narration are leavened with humor in places I read the book out loud to my wife and she freuently laughed aloud at droll exchanges or comments But there are also plenty of serious even poignant moments and some beautifully lyrical prose in places The narrative is well paced and absorbing All in

Le that never really comes of age and that left me unsatisfiedMy apathy or perhaps harshness might be a result of the setting Revolutionary America does not tickle my fancy the way Tudor England does and while I cannot apologize for my preferences it s possible those who find this era fascinating will be charitable towards alternate history about it But I keep thinking about how Seventh Son stacks up against Ender s Game and while that is a battle the former could never possibly win I think it s useful to examine why I liked one Card book so much and disliked another albeit not with proportional intensity Ender s Game is a seductive heartbreaking book Card gives us a victory for humanity but in so doing he breaks Ender in the way a child should never be broken These are the two foci around which the ellipse of the story revolves the moral impact of the book comes from that central uestion of whether Ender s treatment and on the periphery the treatment of all the children at Battle School was justified by the threat to humanity It s an extremely deep et also entertaining taleIn contrast Seventh Son is about a kid with magic powers who breaks his leg It has a vast and unknowable enemy that is Satan rebranded as a force of pure neutral destruction the Unmaker to Alvin s role as Maker It sounds titanic and epic and should be awesome and that s just the problem Alvin s a boy He doesn t know what he s doing He can barely decide to use his power to heal himself the result of an admirable but perhaps misguided attempt at creating some kind of personal code of ethics Unlike Ender s role in his story s larger conflict however I don t sense much ambiguity over Alvin s destiny to oppose the Unmaker As a larger than life force that in some sense is essen Orson Scott Card described his novel Seventh Son as an American epic fantasy contrasting with the uncompromisingly British Tolkeinesue genre of fantasy books This reminded me a great deal of Larry McMurtry s The Berrybender Narratives in its imaginative use of historic people and places to tale the story of the American Frontier in the 1840s Card telling a story perhaps set in the 1810 20s makes this even interesting by slowly unraveling the American past into an alternative history fiction remaking the American foundation I m re reading this book now and is it just me or does it seem like OSC could actually WRITE BETTER back thenHe doesn t write like this any Now his books are the conservative lecturing version of the Anita Blake serious where instead of sex scenes after sex scenes Things We Have in Common you get characters nagging about morality and marriageAlso why do folks insist on being so dang cruel to kids Hitting them with hazel rods and smacking then and such I don t get thatWhat I also don t get is why do people allow religion to separate them anyway I always think the bonds between people are important than any religion at all everNow the actual reviewOSC what HAPPENED toou You used to know how to write This was the first book I read by ou It shaped my paradigm If there was any lecturing about family values it was SUBTLE You even had a character who wasn t religious and didn t vilify him You showed him as a loving father who loved his wife but just didn t want to go to church You used to be able to tell a good strong story full of awesome imagesNow it s just nag nag nag It s too depressing to compare this book to Ender in Exile That book just isn t as strong because every character is taken over to lecture the audience and who wants thatI do not I want a good bookLike this one May 10 2014 Read it again It s still good It doesn t fill me with rage the way Ender s Game does or Lost Boys or so many other books I liked by OSC one does Why can t he still write this way You may have heard OS Card is a Mormon Not that there s anything wrong with that It just makes this little story a trifle interesting because ou see our main character Alvin goes through A LOT of the things that Joseph Smith did growing up Like Smith Alvin has parents who disagreed about religion and like the Smith family Alvin s family practices a religious folk magic in addition to Christianity Smith Also Claimed Like Alvin To claimed like Alvin to confused about the claims of competing religious denominations a situation which is resolved by a religious vision In addition Smith suffered from a bone infection in his boyhood although presumably not from having a mill stone fall on his leg the scenario in Seventh Son Interestingly Joseph Smith had an older brother named Alvin For all these details of Smith s life I am reliant on Wikipedia not the most reliable of sources but not the worst eitherAdd to that the alternative history aspect of the story a North America which gets settled and governed in a radically different way George Washington for example gets beheaded for treason Here the hex signs on the Pennsylvania Dutch barns which began as pure decoration are used to suggest a whole practical magical system for this timeline and the author presumes that they actually spoke Dutch rather than Deutsch Add to that a rather odd Puritan set of names for characters Alvin s twin brothers Wastenot and Wantnot for instance and his brother Calm Somehow this odd mixture of religions does make a rather understandable system Seventh Son s main character Alvin does suffer rather badly from chosen one syndrome but as a seventh son of a seventh son it seems he just can t help it He is destined to be special because seven is viewed as bein.

Rather than discuss each of the books in the Tales of Alvin Maker series separately I ll use this review for all of them They present an alternate history account of a nineteenth century America in which magic is a potent force Although it might not be evident to non Mormons this series is a thinly veiled fictional adaptation of the life of Mormon prophet Joseph Smith just as his Homecoming Saga is a similarly thinly veiled science fiction version of the story of the first part of the Book of Mormon As such it tends either to enthrall or horrify Mormon readers just as did Saints his overtly historical novel about Joseph Smith and polygamy see my review of Saints Non Mormon readers can either have fun looking for the parallels or simply sit back and enjoy the stories for what they are good stories They should particularly appeal to those who like to see magic treated intelligently in a series I went into this as an ignoramus not knowing much about Mormons and the influence that the religious ideology has on Card s work In fact my knowledge of the faith largely comes from a South Park episode which had me in stitches A lot of the negative reviews refer to Card s faith but coming in cold I can honestly say that I loved this novel and had no idea of any overt religious aims I m not necessarily a fan of fate and the fact that Alvin is the seventh son of the seventh son and therefore wields powers but any fan of fantasy knows that fate often plays a role How many times does Gandalf speak of it in LOTR Countless fantasy novels use similar tropes so it didn t bother me either What I admired is the wonderful prose which comes alive in terms of both voice and imagery along with the courageous exploration of an America with an alternative history This is a marvelous example of the dynamism of speculative fiction So outside of a comical South Park episode which basically defines Mormonism as dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb Card s beliefs had no influence on my reading of this enjoyable novel DNFI can t uite put my finger on why I didn t like this book I read about 80 pages and just couldn t go on I found the story to be pretty boring and it seemed very bogged down in religion On top of this I found the character names to be inexcusably silly Maybe I just don t get it I read The Ender uintet and Enchantment in high school and really loved the story lines Because of my previous positive reactions to other Orson Scott Card works I thought that this was a no brainer I wouldn t be opposed to giving this another try in the future but as of now I m moving on Let s start by the good things in this book I like how Scott Card uses language to convey a whole place and moment in time I think that although the ending is open enough to leave important uestions unanswered there s a level of satisfaction about it that makes for a good closure for all those like me who don t plan to read the whole series about that on the things i didn t like There are glimpses of what cultural assimilation means for those who had been conuered showing the tragic reality of what displacement and genocide means but of course as Mr Card is not in the business of accepting that s exactly what happened in this reality based fantasy it s all reduce to that glimpsesNow about the things I didn t like *The portray of Native Americans as nothing else but useless drunks The * portray of Native Americans as nothing else but useless drunks The cover of religious indoctrination presented through the story The imposture of European traditions and superstitions as the sole realityAll that say I must come clean and accept the book is easy to read and entertaining It has some interesting moments and Card surely knows how to create full and well rounded charactersNow if Foodist you re curious about what the story is about and so on I m sure there are many places whereou can find a nice and complete synopsis Here I just wanted to talk about the reasons why I won t be reading any books in this series Books about special children with magic powers being manipulated by binary forces are kind of children with magic powers being manipulated by binary forces are kind of There seems to be a glut of themAs the 18th century draws its final decade long gasps America looks a lot different than Our History Remembers Dutch Colonies history remembers Dutch colonies Aboriginal nations have become states Washington was executed for betraying his British superiors Benjamin Franklin was though he denied it a wizard Faith and superstition have formed a tense euilibrium that could topple given just the right sort of pressure The frontier remains wild for now but civilization continues its inexorable march westAlvin is the seventh son of a seventh son his father also coincidentally named Alvin He s from a family of millers and he is good at everything however he is also prone to accidents because a malevolent force wants him dead Unlike certain other boy prodigies Alvin does not have a love powered lightning bolt scar on his forehead However he does have a well meaning but anonymous protector who is watching out for him so that s somethingI guess I was underwhelmed by Seventh Son The first few chapters were difficult but once Taleswapper came in and Alvin grew up a little the book fell into a rhythm that I enjoyed Yet for all the interesting interactions between Taleswapper and the Miller family between Reverend Thrower and the Visitor between Alvin and his Shining Man I never got the sense that the book was going anywhere There s conflict and a proper climax and falling action and everything that Alvin and the Chipmunks you need to make a story but it s a coming of age ta.
