5.0 out of 5 stars Excitement! Adventure! Thrills! What more could you ask for?, 4 Oct 2012
This review is from: Seven Wonders (Angry Robot) (Paperback)
Note: this review is based on the limited edition hardback of Seven Wonders.

Seven Wonders is a fun, and in spite of its length, rapid read that demonstrates a seemingly-boundless enthusiasm for the world of the superhero.

From a fairly direct premise - average Joe, or Tony in this case, wakes up with superpowers and disturbs the balance of the world's last remaining super-stalemate - the story winds itself tighter and tighter, drawing more and more characters into the conflict and putting pressure on the cracks between those caught right in the centre. With the final turns of the screw, the entire story erupts into a conflict that dwarfs the initial scope of the story, and for a moment it feels as though the enormous momentum that Christopher has unleashed is too much to be reined in.

I'm glad to say he pulls it off, and wraps the novel up with a deft and balanced hand.

This is excellent writing, full of charm, wit, and - best of all - adventure.
