Orson Scott Card – Alvin Journeyman

Alvin Journeyman
Series: Tales of Alvin Maker, 4

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Unexpected start to this one. Alvin and Calvin are the primary protagonist and antagonist in this one. Calvin rushes out of Vigor to find his own master and escape the scheming Alvin. Meanwhile, Alvin is pushed out of Vigor by scandalous words only to find himself in deep trouble over his golden plow in Hatrack. Europe makes its appearance with old and new characters while Calvin does one of the few nice things he’s ever done and making Alvin’s dream a greater possibility. Truly fortunate as Verily, truth is needed in Hatrack if Alvin is to survive.

The Unmaker is well and thriving in an unexpected manner in Hatrack although Making also seems to be on the upswing. And a most unexpected ending of truth, joining, and curses.
