From the end of the 18th century, Americans travelled west to find new homes and new lands. They brought with them the magics of plain people. It is from these roots of the American dream that award-winning writer Orson Scott Card has crafted what the Charlotte Observer called "a uniquely American fantasy." Using the lore and the folk magic of the men and women who settled a continent, and the beliefs of the tribes who were here before them, Card has created an alternate frontier America. Charms, beseechings, hexes, and potions all have a place in the lives of the people of this world.
Alvin Miller is the seventh son of a seventh son, born while his six brothers all still lived. Such a birth is a powerful magic; such a boy is destined to perhaps become a Maker. Rejoin the tale of Alvin and his wife Peggy as they work to create the Crystal City of Alvin's vision, where all people can live together in peace.

Average continuation of the last three books with an above average climax that fades into a typical happy ending. Wish the last book would come out already ( )

Though it felt in some of the middle books like the series was spinning out of control, in this last volume Card brought it to a satisfying finish. ( )

La Ciudad de Cristal es ya el sexto libro de la historia de Alvin Maker el Hacedor. Allá en los lejanos ochenta, cuando Card comenzó esta serie, la propuesta de esa América alternativa resultaba novedosa y las aventuras de Alvin Maker, aún sin ser obras maestras del género fantástico, tenían algún encanto y frescura. Hoy en día las aventuras del Hacedor no aportan nada nuevo y Card se limita a darnos más de lo mismo que en libros anteriores de la serie. En esta sexta entrega Alvin Maker y su hermanastro Arturo Estuardo tendrán que conducir un contingente de esclavos a la otra orilla del Mizzipy. Es patente el paralelismo de la historia con el paso del Mar Rojo protagonizado por Moises en la Biblia.

Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
“That’s the French,” said Moose. “They may not know what’s right, but they know everybody else is wrong.”

Meanwhile, Arthur Stuart ran such errands for the house as a sharp-witted, trusted slave boy might be sent on. And as he went he kept his ears open. People said things in front of slaves, English-speakers especially said things in front of slaves who seemed to speak only Spanish, and Spanish-speakers in front of English-speaking slaves. The French talked in front of anybody.

Maybe that’s how God will get out of it, when he gathers us at his judgment seat and tries to explain why he let so many awful things go on. Maybe he’ll say, “Can’t you take a joke?”

More likely, though, he’ll just tell the truth. “I didn’t do it,” he’ll say. “I’m just the one who has to clean up your mess.” Like a servant. Nobody ever says, How can we make things easier for God? No. We just make messes and expect he’ll come around later and clean it all up.

“So you’re gonna teach me everything?”

“Everything I think of.”

“Who taught you?”

“My own stupid mistakes.”

“So if stupid mistakes have done so much for you, how come you won’t let me study from the same teacher?”

Alvin had no answer to that, just a laugh.
