7th Son Book 2 : Deceit

The Official Blurb

As 7th Son: Book Two - Deceit begins, the Beta clones are demoralized, reeling from their loss ... and about to learn that John Alpha's plans are far from over.

To prevent the next phase of Alpha's plan, John, Kilroy2.0, and the others must unearth more dark secrets about the government project from which they were spawned. They will experience the horrors of betrayal, and race cross-country to track John Alpha.

And they will finally realize the scope of Alpha's wrath -- the bloodshed the clones have witnessed is merely a prelude to the world-rending destruction to come. Unless they can stop it first.

Deceit is the second novel in J.C. Hutchins' 7th Son thriller trilogy.

My Review

I was wowed by the first book in the trilogy. I was blown away by the second! In this sequel the action gets ramped up, the tension increases. We learnt about the clones in the first book, in this one we learn to like them. The depth of thier characters really come to the fore and makes every tense minute more real.

The audio production in this version has notched up a step as well. The author has overdubbed his voice so you can hear thoughts as conversations continue. Excellently done. He had used editors brush to create literally breath taking moments and he has even learnt to use silence which is a tough trick.

Each chapter is delivered and most end with a cliff hanger that leave you drooling.

Yep, I liked it... a lot.

Reading 3/3
Production 3/3
Story 3/3

Total Score 9/9
