I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
Looking for an interesting mystery filled with suspense and conspiracy? Look no further than Secret of the Sevens.Lots of action, sweet romance, intrigue, and good old fashioned treasure hunting make this novel a winner.
Talan was an amazing character- I loved that the story was from his point of view. Cocky yet sweet, confident yet vulnerable, Ms. Lindquist did a fabulous job bringing this character to life. Just enough backstory was shared to really connect the reader to him and understand what makes him tick. Talan was the type of guy I want to be friends with. I also adored the fact that despite his ADHD, Talan was presented as intelligent and capable when he set his mind to it. The budding romance between Laney and Talan was so adorable. I haven't rooted that hard for a couple in a long time.
I love riddles and cryptic clues, and this novel was full of them. I shared the characters' excitement every time a new clue arrived, The Pillars and villain Kane were quite despicable, and I couldn't wait for their downfall. The entire mystery around the Sevens and the Singers was so intriguing and well-plotted. I liked that Ms. Lindquist created a complex mystery but still made it easy to follow and understand. The only issue I had was with the pacing. There were times when it was lightning fast but others where I found myself skimming to get to the next part,
If you like secret societies, conspiracies, and kids making a difference, then Secret of the Sevens is a book you'll enjoy. This is a great novel for teen guys as well, especially since the protagonist is male. I'll definitely be recommending this one to my son.
