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.

Don't buy this version!

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

Awful recording

It’s my own fault for not previewing the audio. It sounds like the narrator is reading through a filter in a tin can. Do not waste a credit on this version.

I found a free version that sounds wonderful.

Abridged!!!

Kinda disappointed that Audible doesn't more clearly differentiate that this is abridged, it costs money, while the full version is included in my subscription.
