7th Son: another great book…coming soon.

7th Son: DescentMost of my reading is comics.  Between work and other stuff in life, I don’t have nearly the kind of time I had a decade ago in high school, or even in college, to just read. And while I certainly enjoy comic reviewing, the online comics community, and of course, the actual reading of comics…that doesn’t leave much time for other reading.

However, when it comes to new books by John Grisham and Brad Meltzer and the occasional other author (I may pick up Dan Brown’s new book in the near future)…I tend to make an exception, and switch to reading the new book before returning to comics.

And thanks to so enjoying the podiobook experience last year, another break-from-comics-to-get/read-a-book is coming up in about a month, when JC Hutchins’ 7th Son: Descent is finally out in print/paperback.

As America reels from the bizarre presidential assassination committed by a child, seven men are abducted from their normal lives and delivered to a secret government facility. Each man has his own career, his own specialty. All are identical in appearance. The seven strangers were grown— unwitting human clones—as part of a project called 7th Son.

The government now wants something from these “John Michael Smiths.” They share the flesh as well as the implanted memories of the psychopath responsible for the president’s murder. The killer has bigger plans, and only these seven have the unique qualifications to track and stop him. But when their progenitor makes the battle personal, it becomes clear he may know the seven better than they know themselves.

Hutchins has composed a fantastic series in 7th Son. Whether you’ve already listened to the podiobook version of the series or are just hearing of it…I highly recommend checking this out. I expect to post more in coming weeks about this; in the meantime, check out jchutchins.net for more information from the author.
