What's the equivalent of a page turner in audioland...an ear burner? This one's hard to turn off, you want to listen to it in big gulps, so clear off your calendar for a 18 mile walk or a weekend cleaning frenzy. Author has a really unique premise, the core creative idea that drives the story is novel and ambitious. So in terms of plot, and unique slant I'd give this 5 stars. But I gotta knock it down a bit for very stock characters, the protagonist is cliche, the supporting cast...ditto. Don't let that stop you from listening though, still great entertainment and I'm absolutely on to the next one!

I've never read anything by Glen Cooper before, and was a little unsure of whether or not I would like the Seventh Son... but I loved it! The characters were great and the plot was unbelievable - yet just crazy enough to believe... maybe. I almost stopped reading when Area 51 and UFOs were mentioned (I can't stand alien stories), but once I realized what was really going on, I'm so glad I didn't. Each chapter is more and more intriguing. The characters have depth and are relatable. The main character, FBI Agent Will Piper, starts out apathetic and boorish, but then transforms as he hunts for the Doomsday Killer. It is easy to see why he was at one time considered a top serial killer profiler. The transitions from one time period to another (8th century, 1940s, 2000s, etc.) are surprisingly easy to keep up with and kept me interested. It is easy to get caught up in the action. This could easily become a box-office smash!
