Book Review of Seventh Son (Tales of Alvin Maker, Bk 1)

Seventh Son (Tales of Alvin Maker, Bk 1)
reviewed on

When this series was first published starting in 1987, I picked it up immediately. Orson Scott Card is one of my favorite authors. I read the first 3 books in the series, but then sort of lost track somehow. By the time I realized all the books had been written I couldn't justify buying them all. (Long story, don't ask.) But I always kept this series on my mind's bookshelf, wanting to have it in reality. When I found it here, on Paperback Swap, I was really excited, so I got the whole series. Then I was afraid maybe they wouldn't be as good somehow, maybe I had changed and I'd be disappointed. I just finished this book, Seventh Son. I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!! This series is still absolutely fantastic! Thank you, Orson!!
