    San Ventura is helpless against super villain The Cowl’s reign of terror and even its resident superheroes, the Seven Wonders, are powerless to stop him. However, the Cowl’s powers begin to wane as a retail wage slave named Tony Prosdocimi finds himself gaining more powers by the day. Will Tony take down the Cowl and join the Seven Wonders?

    For months now, I’ve been looking for a good superhero novel. Now I’ve found it!

    Seven Wonders is a lot deeper than my quick summary indicates. Nothing is black and white. The familiar Spider-Man quote “With great power comes great responsibility” would have made a great title for it.

    The characters are an interesting bunch. Tony Prosdocmi is a slacker that sells electronics at a chain store and wakes up with super powers one day. The Cowl is an analogue of both Batman and Superman and is the villain of the piece but is much more than that. He’s by far the most interesting character in the first half of the book. The Cowl’s sidekick, The Blackbird, is also his lover and tech expert. The members of The Seven Wonders, Aurora’s Light, Sand Cat, the Dragon Star, Linnear, Hephasteus, SMART, and Bluebell, are meant to be analogues of the Justice League or The Avengers. I would have liked to see them more developed. Aurora’s Light and Linnear are clearly meant to be Superman and The Flash. The others are a little harder to identify. The linchpin characters, however, are Sam Millar and Joe Milano, members of San Ventura’s SuperCrime unit.

    The story covers a lot of comic book ground in it’s 400-something pages. Tony’s story initially reminds me of Spider-Man as he learns to use his powers. The Cowl’s is the story of decline and redemption. Millar and Milano’s story is a lot like Gotham Central at the beginning. As for the Seven Wonders, I can’t help but think of works like Watchmen and Garth Ennis’s The Boys. Somewhere around the halfway mark, the stakes raise dramatically and it becomes one of those huge mega-crossovers where the world is at stake.

    The writing is as you would expect for fiction of this type but Adam Christopher delivers the goods with the tools he has. He has a lot of balls in the air and boggles them a couple times toward the end but all in all does a spectacular job. (view spoiler) I like this a lot more than his previous book, Empire State.

    Seven Wonders should be a pleasing read for all super hero fans. Four easy stars. I’d like to see what Adam Christopher could do writing the Justice League or the Avengers.

    it was amazing

    [sigh]  Another amazing cover from the folks over at Angry Robot Books.

    I’m not going to waste time talking about how awesome I think the cover is, though (even if I do), I want to talk about the book itself.  Or…try to, anyway.

    “What?  Try?  What is she talking about?  SJ NEVER HAS A PROBLEM TALKING ABOUT BOOKS!”

    This time I do.

    “What?  Try?  What is she talking about?  SJ NEVER HAS A PROBLEM TALKING ABOUT BOOKS!”

    This time I do.

    There are (sadly) few books that make me feel like this one did.  That feeling you I get where you I want to grab random people on the street by their lapels while shouting “Holy crap, HAVE YOU READ THIS?!” and waving a copy in their faces.  (Note:  I do not actually accost strangers, promise)

    So, yeah – Seven Wonders will be for me this year what
    Ready Player One
    was last year.  That’s not to say it can be compared to RP1, though – they’re not really anything alike.  I did brandish it at people for months, so they’re similar in that respect.

    I’m sure you’re all thinking “Yeah, yeah, but are you going to tell us what it’s about?”  Um…bare-bones, it’s a book about a superhero named Tony.

    Don’t worry if you’re not into superhero fiction, I’m not usually either.   Within the first few pages, I was sucked into the fictional California town of San Ventura, desperate to know what was going to happen next with Tony, The Cowl, Blackbird, Aurora’s Light, Dragon Star and Linear.  Yeah, I know that sounds like a lot of names to keep straight, but everyone has a distinct personality and you won’t have any problem keeping up.  If I weren’t also doing the Tolkien re-read right now, I probably would have finished it in a day then cried because I didn’t have it to look forward to anymore.

    I feel like kind of a jerk for being so vague about the story, but I’m really frightened of spoiling anything for anyone, especially since the book won’t even be out until August (September if you’re in the UK – sorry, British readers).

    I had so many passages highlighted that made me laugh OR creeped me the hell out OR were JUST SO awesome I wanted to share – but I’m not going to.  I really hope you’ll all take the time to discover them on your own.  The only one I’m willing to share sums up the story fairly perfectly:

    That was a special case. A game, super cat and mighty mouse. It had gone on too long, too far.

    Five enthusiastic stars, and bonus points cos two of my favourite people that live in my computer have their names dropped in the book (one’s name is given to a pizza place, the other is a superhero).  I like knowing that an author I enjoy has friends in common with me -as well as a shared favourite band.

    You can find pre-order links and information on the author’s website, go order yourself a copy now and try not to stare forlornly at your mailbox while you wait for it to arrive.

    Thanks to Angry Robot for the eARC and to Adam for writing such a fantastic book.  I’ll be re-reading soon (and pre-ordering for my actual bookshelves).

    it was ok

    I was listening to a podcast last week which pointed out the lack of superhero sci-fi and described it as an unusual minority in the genre. So I made a point to pick up a couple of recent books which had that theme.

    I’ve read Adam Christopher’s “Empire State” before and was disappointed by the work but I figured I’d give his newest novel “Seven Wonders” a try.

    I think it was the most frustrating book I’ve read all year. And that really bothered me. I’ve listened to interviews and read articles by

    I’ve read Adam Christopher’s “Empire State” before and was disappointed by the work but I figured I’d give his newest novel “Seven Wonders” a try.

    I think it was the most frustrating book I’ve read all year. And that really bothered me. I’ve listened to interviews and read articles by Adam Christopher and really enjoy what he has to say. Angry Robot is bringing in the best new talent in the field and cranking out dozens of books every month. But I could not enjoy “Seven Wonders.”

    PROS:
    – There were several elements of jaw-dropping, eyebrow-raising WTF moments and reveals.
    – Lots of action scenes. And I mean, lots and LOTS of action.
    – Christopher does an admirable job of addressing the different dynamics at work in 4 color comics.
    – The names, powers and backgrounds of the characters were interesting.
    – Followed a conventional 3 Act structure which made the plot easy to follow…sort of.

    CONS:
    – Few of those awesome elements described above were fully harvested for maximum effect.
    – Superficial, bland characters with little more depth than the paper they’re printed on.
    – Numerous plot holes and back story which is NEVER addressed.
    – Much of the plot makes no sense. I don’t want to spoil anything by making specific citations.
    – Way too much TELL, not nearly enough SHOW.
    – Some truly head-scratching descriptions and prose — “…he ascended vertically…” “…she pogoed upward..” [yes, the word is pogoed] and a vast profusion of needless adverbs and dialogue tags.
    – Seemed as though the chronology was really choppy at many times.
    – Some of the least smooth chapter transitions and POV hopping I’ve read in a while.
    – The last 1/3 of the book is a non-stop series of “Wait. What? Who? Why are they doing that?!”

    I have to admit I felt bad for not enjoying “Seven Wonders” more. I guess I was just hoping for A LOT more depth to the work.

    It may be a stylistic thing, but I don’t think I was the reader Adam Christoper was writing for in this work.
