5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy sequel to a fantastic beggining.
The second installment in young Alvin Miller's adventures is even more gripping, relentlessly exciting, imaginative and simply a wonderful story.
In this book, Alvin follows the lives of the Red Indians as they struggle aginst the onslought of the White settlers driving them out of their lands, and their own struggle of choosing war or peace. In the course of the...

1.0 out of 5 stars The most typographically error strewn digital book I've come across
Let's start by saying I like the work well enough, say 3 or 4 stars worth. Unfortunately the idiots who transfered this to digital are either illiterate or plain lazy, certainly no attention at all has been made to the countless typos. Were I the author I'd fire the publisher, it is beyond ridiculous. It is so bad that it detracts so much from the work as to leave you...

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy sequel to a fantastic beggining., 19 Sep 2005
The second installment in young Alvin Miller's adventures is even more gripping, relentlessly exciting, imaginative and simply a wonderful story.
In this book, Alvin follows the lives of the Red Indians as they struggle aginst the onslought of the White settlers driving them out of their lands, and their own struggle of choosing war or peace. In the course of the book, Alvin learns to "see" more than meets the eye, to understand more of his "knack", and begins to realise how he should fit into the grand scheme of life.
The story is also immensely real and emotional. I was nearly in tears at the end of it!

1.0 out of 5 stars The most typographically error strewn digital book I've come across, 28 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let's start by saying I like the work well enough, say 3 or 4 stars worth. Unfortunately the idiots who transfered this to digital are either illiterate or plain lazy, certainly no attention at all has been made to the countless typos. Were I the author I'd fire the publisher, it is beyond ridiculous. It is so bad that it detracts so much from the work as to leave you thinking only of the typos. Another transfer that has never seen a proof reader and proof again that they are worth the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inventive, Unorthodox and a Little Dark, 11 Mar 2009
By 
Sir Furboy (Aberystwyth, UK) - See all my reviews
This book was a great read - and as usual, Card is inventive and unorthodox. What appears to be an anti-religious tirade settles into a more considered point of view. Meanwhile there are some interesting diversions into things that actually make a society strong and meaningful, and into issues surrounding native Americans, whilst all the time taking the overall story of a seventh son of a seventh son forward.

Not Card's best work, but certainly not his worst either - and well worth reading

5.0 out of 5 stars Good- another in the Alvin series, 3 Sep 2001
By 
M. G. Latham "HM Oswald" (London Uk) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
As usual Orson Scott Card delivers a highly readable sequel to his Alvin series. Readers are best advised to start at the beginning of the series.
