Thread Name: Need Info: Seventh son of a seventh son
Subject: RE: BS: Seventh son of a seventh son
One of the plot points in Card's Alvin Maker series is the whole question of how the 7 are counted & if they must be living. Only sons count. Alvin is a 7th son, but the oldest had been swept away in a river just before he was born. He has mystic power, but the next son who was also the 7th living son is also very powerful.
