    " Reading Seven Wonders is like watching a high octane action movie, including deleted scenes as an additional feature. The characters are complex, it is hard to see who is one which side, truly there is no right or wrong which I loved. However the book did not capture my attention I found my mind wandering, perhaps it was the drawn out plot line at the start or the lack luster ending. I recommend this book if you love superheroes, and action stories that at points get your adrenalin pumping. Its good but not great. "

    " What a great concept for a novel. Yet it went off the rails roughly half way through the book. Too many ideas. Too many characters. Almost like Watchmen fan fiction at some points. Ending wasn't remotely worth it. "

    " Save your money and find it at your local library. There are too many plot twists and character changes for your suspension of disbelief to survive. "

    " Potential squandered. The book started off with a good premise, had an interesting cast of characters. But about half-way through, it switched gears. Characters started acting out of character. The story became disjointed. I wanted to really like this book, but it shot itself in the foot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rory (Nightwyrm) | 1/25/2014

    " Novelised comic writing at its best. This reads like an end-to-end major comics event from either of The Big Two, and I'd certainly like to see this serialised in comic form. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aaron | 1/18/2014

    " Even though I'm three quarters of the way done with the book, I can't go any further. I will recommend Christopher's "Empire State" until the day I die, but this one is not money or time well spent. You get plot twists you see coming four miles away. You get weak motivations for huge character transitions. Then I'm supposed to believe a psychic superhero is able to be immune to radiation by chalking it up to...I kid thee not..."somehow"? No. Not going any further. I am hugely disappointed. "

    " When it comes to fiction, I'm pretty tough to surprise. Seven Wonders did it. Points off because of the pacing--too slow in the beginning and rushed at the end. Points on for an interesting cast. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glen | 1/6/2014

    " This was okay. I understand that translating the superhero genre from comic books to novels is really difficult, so I should probably cut the author a bit of a break. The setting and world were quite good, but the characters were quite frankly not well-explored at all. The book shifts all over between having the reader identify with 2-3 different people at any given moment, and even these ostensibly "main" characters are not very relatable people. It also seemed like the author's favorite character was the one whom the book was not actually about... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodney | 9/20/2013

    " Comic book fun... anxiously awaiting a sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 9/8/2013

    " Loved Empire State. I liked this book a lot more. Something about superhero books always gets me. For me, he did a great job at making the superheroes actually seem human. Thank god for flawed people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nico | 6/25/2013

    " Got confusing toward the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire | 3/15/2013

    " LOVED the deleted scenes at the end. Great idea. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 2/4/2013

    " A great take on the superhero relm. Proves that power can corrupt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trax | 11/20/2012

    " I liked it and enjoyed how the story unfolded. This book seems to be somewhat polarizing with some people stating that they could just not get into it. I liked the take on superheroes and supervillains, the sort of two sides of that coin. Nice complicated plot and characters. "

About the Author
Author Adam Christopher

Adam Christopher was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and grew up watching Pertwee-era Doctor Who and listening to the Beatles, which isn’t a bad start for a child of the 80s. In 2006, Adam moved to the sunny northwest of England, where he now lives in domestic bliss with his wife and cat in a house next to a canal, although he has yet to take up any fishing-related activities. Adam’s short fiction has appeared in Pantechnicon, Hub, and Dark Fiction magazine, and has been nominated for the British Science Fiction Association, British Fantasy Society, and Parsec awards. In 2010, as an editor, Adam won a Sir Julius Vogel award, New Zealand’s highest science fiction honor. When not writing Adam can be found drinking tea and obsessing over DC Comics, Stephen King, and the Cure. He is also a strong advocate for social media, especially Twitter, where he spends far too much time avoiding work.
