Nana Visitor's spirited and intuitive reading of Card's story, which is set in an alternate America, immediately draws in the listener, holding on until the conclusion which begs for the next installment. (Currently, there are five volumes in the series.) Sorcery, magic and special powers exist in this America of the 1800's frontier--they're said to always grace the seventh son of a seventh son. Alvin, Jr., knows even as a boy that he has special powers. As others become aware of his powers, he faces danger from unexpected quarters. Visitor deftly captures all the nuances of character and emotion with her malleable and expressive voice, consistently finding the tone, pace and emotion to fit the scene. M.A.M.
