Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Joss Morgan loves a good prank, but the joke's on him when he discovers he has superpowers. He quickly learns that with the new powers comes real danger. The Mockers are coming for Joss, and he doesn't know why, or even who they really are.
The Guild of Sevens sends Mara to train Joss in his new powers, and she uses him to fight back against the Mockers. But nothing adds up, and pretty soon Joss is wondering which side he's working for.
When the Mockers arrive at his home, Joss is out of time. He sets up a high-stakes prank to save his family. This time he knows that if he fails, he won't end up in the principal's office; he'll be six feet under.

Fun middle grade superhero romp

A fun, quick-paced story of a boy discovering his superpowers -- and the importance of the people around him. Good guys, bad guys, fun fight scenes, and a refreshingly competent kid sister. Though there's an opening for the next in the series, this story is complete.

Fantastic story and EXCELLENT narration!

Would you listen to Joss the Seven again? Why?

Absolutely! In fact, as soon as I heard how good it was, I announced to my family that we're listening to it on our road trip this summer. It's so well-paced and exciting that I know it will keep the whole family's interest for the drive.


What other book might you compare Joss the Seven to and why?

It's like a Peter Parker becoming Spiderman story. It reminds me of another teen superhero series called The Cassidy Jones Adventures, also super exciting.


What about Kevin Coffin’s performance did you like?

Kevin Coffin was flippin' amazing. I had already read the book before I heard the audible version, and I had pacing and voices in my head. Coffin completely lived up to -- and improved upon -- my imagination. He kept each character distinct and knew when to speed up and when to slow down. You could SEE things happening because of his timing and vocal mannerisms.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The whole book has the twists and turns of a great roller coaster ride, including switch backs, corkscrews, and total loop-the-loops that upend your whole vision of who to trust and what Joss should do. I found moments of wonder, humor, terror, and triumph.


Any additional comments?

JOSS THE SEVEN audible is the perfect marriage of excellent story telling and superb voice acting. The talent of both men involved makes this one a definite keeper.

I had purchased the book on my own, but received a free copy of the audible book in exchanged for an honest review. Because of how much I loved the written book, I was more than happy to do so, and my comments were in no way influenced by the fact that the audible version was free to me.
