Amid the deep woods where the Red Man still holds sway, a very special child is born. Young Alvin is the seventh son of a seventh son, and such a boy is destined to become great - perhaps even a man with the enormous powers of a Maker. But even in the loving safety of his home, dark forces reach out to destroy him. There is a power that will do anything to prevent him growing up...

My first Orson Scott Card and it won't be the last! Skillfully woven story drags you into the heart of the book.

What a super start to this series. They are so easy to read and pull you in from the first sentence. I am so pleased I already have the next 2 books in the series so don't have to wait to find out what happens next.
I am offering this on a spiral.

The books have arrived - my very first Ring - I can't wait to start reading them (after the Minette Walters I got from scotsbookie).

Journal Entry 7 by RubyBlueLady from Avebury, Wiltshire United Kingdom on Thursday, March 16, 2006
I read this book in a matter of hours - it's an easy read, but also an addictive one. I loved this book, I love the fact that it's 'fantasy' but is set on this planet, during the 1800s in the 'wild west' of frontier America as I hate the usual fantasy set on planet Zafrogg which is peopled by people with silly made-up names. This book was believable, and, as it happens, I believe that with the right knowledge you can 'hex' and cast spells, (but should only do so for good or protection).

I am dying to read the next book and wish there were loads more in the series.

(this book is a paperback)

Arrived today. Thanks!

Different to the other OSC books I have read - the others (mainly Ender books) were science fiction. Still, I really enjoyed reading this and am glad that I've got the second book to get through as well.

Oh, and aveburysurfer - don't worry, there apparently are loads more in the series:

1. Seventh Son (1987)
2. Red Prophet (1988)
3. Prentice Alvin (1989)
4. Alvin Journeyman (1995)
5. Heartfire (1998)
6. Crystal City, The (2003)
7. Master Alvin (not yet published)

Arrived safely, many thanks.

Just finished this a few moments ago. It's excellent. Perhaps a bit America the Great in parts but it didn't last too long! I'll be starting the next in the spiral immediately.

Journal Entry 12 by Rillaith from Wokingham, Berkshire United Kingdom on Friday, May 12, 2006
Arrived this morning, safe and sound, with books 2 and 3. What a lovely BCID stick you use!

Have a few rings ahead of this, but will get through them as soon as I can :) (Do they need to be sent on together, or can I split them so I can alternate between each of these and the Stephanie Plums rather than reading both series back to back?)

Looking forward to it - not usually my preferred genre, but it sounded too good not to try.

Journal Entry 13 by Rillaith from Wokingham, Berkshire United Kingdom on Thursday, June 01, 2006
Brilliant, loved every minute. Thank you so much for tempting me into reading these - I was a bit doubtful when they arrived, too!

I accidentally read book 3 first - I grabbed for the wrong end of my bookshelf, I guess. It didn't spoilt it at all though, knowing a few little hints of what had happened in books 1 & 2 - and apparently they stand alone fairly well too. If anything, I think I was able to enjoy bok 1 more than I would have, knowing that I'd already enjoyed the continuation of the story!

Having read that one, I fair near devoured this one in a day and a half flat. I've just added the other 4 in the series to my wishlist (thanks for the list, Yiremyahu!)

I'm in the middle of book 2 at the moment, so I may as well send all 3 at once, as I'll have finished it if not by tomorrow, then certainly by Monday!

Many thanks Rillaith, although it was a bit of a shock to get all three at once LOL

Journal Entry 15 by celticstar from Telford, Shropshire United Kingdom on Tuesday, August 22, 2006
I'm so sorry its taken me so long to get to read this.

I've enjoyed everything I've read by Orson Scott Card so far and this was no exception. I look forward to reading the next one (but don't have to wait, as it's here with me now)

My hubby would like to read it before I send it on, I feel a bit guilty as I've had it so long, but he reads very fast so I will still be able so send it on by the end of the week.

Teachie can you confirm who I need to send it on too please, as I can't see anything on this page. Thanks

Was offered this on Tuesday,
Hooked on Wednesday, finished it, looking for the next.
As people say a very light easy read which draws you in.
Passing it back to celticstar to forward on the spiral.

Journal Entry 20 by wubbaducky from not specified, not specified not specified on Saturday, January 05, 2008
I love fantasy as well as scifi and although I'd only read scifi from Orson Scott Card before, I really enjoyed his fantasy. Am really looking forward to Red Prophet...
