A wonderful tale written as if the folk magic in colonial times leading up to the civil war was real. Most people had a special skill of some type. Alvin is the seventh son of a seventh son and this makes his skill stronger and more rare. Alvin is a maker which means he can create. The characters are interesting and you can't help but care about them and wonder what is going to happen next. The ongoing struggle within mankind of good against evil is shown in these first two stories of the Seventh Son series. I read the series a long time ago so my memory is a bit fuzzy on details, especially since I read a few books every week and it has been years. The fact that I remember it at all after so long says a lot. This has to be one of my all time favorite series. Others include Harry Potter, The Wrinkle in Time series, Chronicles of Narnia and urban fantasy series such as he Overworld series and The Alestair Stone books. I am so glad that I saw them here so that I can read them again! The history is rich and vivid like you can reach out and touch it! The magic makes it, well, Magical!
