The Perfect 7 is a Perfect Read!

ThePerfect7Description: “Seventeen year old Kevin Yager marches to the beat of his own drum. Unaffected by life, his crass, sarcastic outlook has coined him the bad boy of Juniper Falls, Alaska. Eager for success and hungry for fame, Kevin and his four band mates, Sam, Ivers, Roth and Lane accept an offer from business mogul, Viktor Vikirrus to play at his trendy nightclub, The Perfect 7. Seduced by sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, the boys are blinded by their benefactor’s generosity and are unable to see the hidden darkness behind Vikirrus and his club; until their final performance, when they discover that they’ve been hand-picked for the sole purpose of enticing the youth with their infectious music. Vikirrus intends to use the band to mass an army that will shake the very foundation of heaven itself and being Satan’s modern day pied pipers has never been so grand. Follow their journey as they discover the secret to coming of age in a world whose age is coming to an end.”

Inion N MathairAbout the authors: “Inion N. Mathair means daughter ‘n’ mother in Irish Gaelic and is a pseudonym for daughter and mother writing team, Ginger Brooke Perrone and Natalie Perrone. We both have a deeply rooted love for books and the craft of writing. Though we are originally from Pt. Charlotte, Florida, we now call Franklin, North Carolina our home.”

5StarsThanks to Inion N Mathair, the mother-daughter writing team, I’ve just finished reading a book I never wanted to end. It’s a rare thing for me to become so involved with characters that my breath stops and my heart races with nearly every page. The tale is not only well conceived, but brilliantly told with more hooks than a convention of pirates.

Our boys are dazzled by the lure of bright lights, fame, and fortune. Unfortunately, there is a tarnish to be dealt with and it’s not of this world. The characters are as astonishingly well-developed as the story.

I have to make a confession here. Very early in the book, I started to ration the number of pages I’d read each day. I wanted to savour the spinning of the yarn, but another part of me wanted to sit up all night and finish it in one go. I’m so glad I paced myself because now I have to wait for the sequel. If you’re looking for a nice, fairy tale happy ending The Perfect 7 is not your book. BUT, if you’re looking for a story that will pull you in, grab you by the throat and excite you beyond belief then this is the book for you! I gladly rate this book with 5 stars as I wait with bated breath for the next installment.

Thanks to Amazon’s policy of not allowing customers in Jordan to download books, the authors generously provided me with a free copy without requesting a review.

You can find The Perfect 7 at Amazon. Don’t put it off! Get it. Load it into your reader. Enjoy!
