Review quote

"Absolutely wonderful." "Seven Wonders slams readers in the gut from the very first page and then just keeps on firing cannons, giving readers the same choice as every single citizen of San Ventura - either duck and cover, or ride along with the laser." "Inventive, engaging, bewitching, and delightful," "This is Watchmen meets NYPD Blue, while The Incredibles stroll by." "Seven Wonders is the exploded view on superheroes. Set pieces are described in colourful visuals like enhanced comic frames and the heroes' physical vulnerability is deftly shown in a way only novels can." "Seven Wonders is a rollicking roller-coaster of a novel." "dam Christopher's Seven Wonders is the literary equivalent of a lazy Saturday morning with a stack of your favorite comic books: pure, unadulterated fun!" "Seven Wonders is, quite simply, the superhero novel we've all been waiting for." "A novel with the best of superhero traditions: cool adventure, great action, and heroes and villains with genuine personality." "A smart, entertaining, energetic take on the superhero genre." "These pages are filled with gleaming spandex, sinister motives and explosive action. Seven Wonders is wry, sly and ready to fly." "artfully plotted and thrilling action-adventure with some satisfying set-piece confrontations and amazingly rounded characterisation." "evokes classic comic book writers such as Busiek, Moore, Morrison and Gaiman, and yet retains a unique style and sense of a world." "I would definitely recommend you go out and buy."

About Adam Christopher

Adam Christopher was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and grew up watching Pertwee-era Doctor Who and listening to The Beatles, which isn't a bad start for a child of the 80s. In 2006, Adam moved to the sunny North West of England, where he now lives in domestic bliss with his wife and cat in a house next to a canal, although he has yet to take up any fishing-related activities.Adam's short fiction has appeared in Pantechnicon, Hub, and Dark Fiction Magazine, and has been nominated for the British Science Fiction Association, British Fantasy Society, and Parsec awards. In 2010, as an editor, Adam won a Sir Julius Vogel award, New Zealand's highest science fiction honour.When not writing Adam can be found drinking tea and obsessing over DC Comics, Stephen King, and The Cure. He is also a strong advocate for social media, especially Twitter, which he spends far too much time on, avoiding work.
