Red Prophet

Red Prophet

‘Suddenly the saga of Alvin Maker begins to thrill.’ – Washington Post Book World

Red Prophet is but a section of a vast American fantasy epic. It is vividly written, and the principal actors–Alvin, Ta-Kumsaw, the Prophet, and Alvin’s Gandalfesque mentor Taleswapper–are all complete and memorable characters.’ – The Philadelphia Inquirer

Since the age of eleven, when he saw the white men murder his father, the Red Indian Lolla-Wossiky has been a pathetic drunk. His brother, Ta-Kumsaw, wishes to see whites confined to the eastern lands. But Governor Bill Harrison of the rough frontier town of Carthage has far more brutal plans for the Indians.

When he puts those plans into action, he unwittingly brings young Alvin Miller – a very special white boy with extraordinary magical powers – to Lolla-Wossiky and Ta-Kumsaw. And brings Alvin one more step on his magical odyssey.

The second book in the acclaimed Tales of Alvin Maker series, by one of the world’s best-loved SF/fantasy authors.

Reviews

As always, Mr. Card writes with energy and conviction.
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
The man's versatility of style, subject and approach makes him unique in the SF field.
ANNE MCCAFFREY
One of the genre's most convincing storytellers.
LIBRARY JOURNAL
Harsher, bleaker, and more mystical than Seventh Son, this novel superbly demonstrates Card's solid historical research, keen understanding of religious experience, and, most of all, his mastery of the art of storytelling.
