Seventh Son by Orson Scott Card
rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve been listening to this on during my commutes, and I find it reviting. After the first couple chapters, I couldn’t help thinking that this would be great material to adapt for a Dogs in the Vineyard game.
Settlers on a frontier, with folk-magic and religous fundamentalism, richly-textured characters and a compelling story; good stuff!
I borrowed this audiobook from Listen Up! Vermont, and this production features several different voice actors narrating chapters with focus on different characters to great effect. I haven’t finished it, but I’m glad to see that there are more books in the series. I’ll have to seek out some reviews.
