Seven Wonders by Adam Christopher (Book Review)

Adam Christopher had two novels published through Angry Robot Books in 2012. The first was his debut Empire State which was a really strong novel in most respects. The second was Seven Wonders, a very involved and interesting superhero novel with a great cast for the most part.

As I mentioned at the end of that list, this isn’t going to be regurgitation of my “Reading Awards” page, but something more varied. The list takes into account everything I’ve read in the last six months.

Let’s see what makes the cut and which comes close then!
