Description du produit

From Publishers Weekly

The legal thriller wave laps at the shores of fantasy fiction in this fourth novel (after Prentice Alvin) in Card's popular series about natural-born mage Alvin Smith, who's the seventh son of a seventh son, and the magical early America in which he lives. Also returning are Alvin's equally talented brother Calvin, who's a scoundrel, the mixed-up little boy Arthur Stuart and Alvin's ladylove, Peggy Larner. Hatred of his brother and boundless ambition prompt Calvin to run off to England, where he meets an English barrister who so embarrasses him by seeing through his lies that he moves onto France, hoping to learn the arts of manipulation under the tutelage of Napoleon Bonaparte himself. Meanwhile, Alvin must leave his beloved town of Vigor Church because of a lovesick young girl's lies. Returning to Hatrack River, where he was born, he becomes embroiled in a trial for his life. Unfortunately, much of the novel's action stops during the trial, as Alvin languishes in his cell and Card jabs at lawyers and the justice system. The courtroom scenes prove something of a procedural joke, with truth finally served only because Alvin uses his magic to make everything come out right. This parable bogs down in its own folksiness, but fans of Card, who's won both the Hugo and Nebula awards, may love it dearly. Major ad/promo; author tour.

From School Library Journal

YA?At last, Book IV of this terrific series. Set in an alternate history, Card's frontier America is a land where wives' tales are fact and magic- in the form of hexes, beseechings, and "knacks"- really works. Alvin has the most powerful knack of all; he is a Maker, with power over the physical world. In this installment, he ignores a prophetic warning and falls victim to the manipulations of The Unmaker, an ancient enemy that seeks anarchy. While embroiled in a legal dispute that places him in jail, Alvin draws to him the people who will assist in his quest to build the Crystal City of his vision. Alvin Journeyman is the springboard for this quest that will be played out in future volumes. Knowledge of previous titles is beneficial, so be sure to have copies available of Seventh Son, Red Prophet, and Prentice Alvin.?Robin Deffendall, Bull Run Regional Library, Manassas, VA

Je ne suis habituellement pas fan de fantasy. Mais la saga d'Alvin Maker mêle fantasy et uchronie d'une manière remarquablement habile.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Alvin Maker - A Good Yarn 12 septembre 2016
Par Prpl-Robi - Publié sur

A really, really imaginative, capturing tale of how Our Country might have been in a parallel dimension. Slight change in place names, historical characters with just a bit of a twist of the history found in text books, added to folk lore and magick; Creates a new story unlike any tall tale of the old frontier you will ever have heard before. Delightful, humorous, heavy with love, the strength of family ties and small town bravery. This novel comes straight from the heart of Orson Scott Card. I can't wait to continue on to the next sequel.
I truly care about Alvin, Peggy, Taleswapper, Arthur Stuart, and TenskaTawa, the Red Prophet and his people. THAT is the measure of a great story., in my humble opinion.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 American myth re-imagined 10 août 2013

It's a fun series. The books are simple fun. Card has tapped into some cultural stereotypes and collective dreams that most Americans harbor, or are at least aware of, then he takes those dreams and weaves them into stories. I've heard an interview with Card where he mentions Isaac Asimov as one of his greatest influences and he mentions that he believes that Asimov was one of the best writers in Science Fiction.

I don't agree. And I don't think that Card's writing style is inventive or his narration compelling for itself. He speaks as plainly as the country-folk he idolizes (and sometimes demonizes) in these books. That said I've read most of Asimov's science fiction work and several of his works that aren't science fiction and the same holds true for Card's writing. It's easy. It's fun. And it touches something in my psyche that is a bit like holding onto my favorite teddy bear when I was still knee-high to a grasshopper.

I really wanted to like this book. I did like the three previous ones in the series. This one however I quit about a third of the way thru it. This seems like one of those series that goes on and on just to be selling books. It is not Mr. Card at his finest IMHO.
