7th Son: Book One - Descent 7th Son: Book One - Descent by J.C. Hutchins (iTunes)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars and will listen to the next podiobook in the trilogy.
This is a free podiobook (podcast audiobook) read by the author. It was originally released weekly in 2006 chapter by chapter.

The story starts with the murder of the President... by a 4-year-old boy. Seven men are brought into a secret installation that even Presidents don't know about. All the men are the same person, John Smith, clones of the mastermind behind that assassination with all the same memories up to the age of fourteen. They never knew. Now, they have to catch their original, John Alpha, and stop whatever he is plotting next.

I really enjoyed this. It's rather engrossing, especially the parts which delve into the very different life paths the Beta clones have taken. There's plenty of action, lots of intrigue and suspense building, as well as a sub-plot which will no doubt be important in the next two books.

    So, I've taken up juggling. I've got the 3-ball cascade down and am starting to try some other stuff that I'm pretty much making up. I'm doing…

  • So, you may ask: What's a TiVo?

    If you have 4 minutes, you really must watch this musical video from Lex Friedman. It's SFW, but still hilarious. ^_^
