7th Son

7th SonI’m really enjoying getting caught up on J.C. Hutchins’ 7th Son podcast novel trilogy. I’m about a third of the way through listening to his second book now and really loving every minute of the show.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with _7th Son_, the trilogy follows the story of seven clones as they attempt to track and capture their predecessor. John Smith Alpha, the original, is a nefarious villain with devious plans. It’s up to the John Smith Betas to stop Alpha before he can wreak havoc across the globe.

J.C. has written a powerful trilogy of books and has graciously recorded them for consumption by the masses. One of the things that I love about J.C.’s writing is that literally no one is safe. I don’t generally like predictable fiction, so it’s always a pleasure to come across an author who isn’t afraid to mix things up and take chances that keep the reader guessing about what’s going to happen next. J.C. does this consistently with _7th Son_. It’s speculative fiction at its finest, and I’m looking forward to seeing where things go from here. I still have a ways to go before I’m completely caught up, but I’m looking forward to the ride.

  2. Is there any way to listen to this other than through iTunes? I'm afraid I don't have space to install iTunes, but would still love to enjoy the series.

Have anything to add to the conversation?
