Publisher's Summary

Seventh Son, the first tale of Alvin Maker, introduces us to a pioneer America where magic works, and special talents are utilized in marvelous ways. In Red Prophet, the second installment in the Tales of Alvin Maker, we learn more about those talents, both the minor gifts of white people (starting fires, finding water) or the much grander gifts of the Indians, whose lives are filled with a beautiful green music. Young Alvin Maker, the seventh son of a seventh son, is a Maker. Lolla-Wossiky, an Indian whose fate is closely linked with Alvin's, has heard black noise in his head since he watched white men murder his father. Unable to hear the green music he needs to live well, Lolla-Wossiky lives only for the alcohol that stills the black noise - until he meets Alvin.

narrator ruined this book

the narrator ruined this book for me, I just could not get into the story nor stay interested. She mumbled and ran her words together to the point where I missed at least 40% of the book.

Sound quality is very poor and degraded

This story is great, but the sound on this particular version is very poor and degraded. I had such a difficult time hearing what she was saying that I exchanged it for a different version.

Beware: 8bit recording

Really bad audio. Had to return it. Note also that returning will not be easy. Skip this one and go for the Scott Brick narrated one.

Don't buy this version!

Recording is poor. There is a better recording available. Chose this version B000P12J6W instead. Good luck!
