Praise for 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

“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.” —Booklist
