Series: 7th Son (Book 3)

Cover for '7th Son: Book Three - Destruction (The Beta Version)'

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is "The Beta Version" of this podiobook. 7th Son: Descent is now available as a print novel from St. Martin's Press. During the editorial process, significant changes and improvements were made to Descent's print manuscript. Character names were changed, and events at the end of the print novel were modified in ways that will impact the rest of the print trilogy. The print novel represents an official reboot of the 7th Son series.

Due to these changes, this "Beta Version" of Book Three: Destruction is no longer the "official" version of the podiobook. Please visit the 7th Son: Descent (The Print Edition) page to subscribe to the definitive beginning of the trilogy. You're welcome to continue the series with this version of Destruction, but note that you will encounter slight inconsistencies in character names and plot references.

As day four in the 7th Son adventure begins, John Alpha's quest for anarchy and genocide enters its final stage.

At every turn, the global terrorist has been triumphant. The world is reeling from a nuclear attack. An unprecedented energy crisis is upon us. Alpha himself has exclusive access to the White House, and secret weapons primed to propel his conspiracy into the endgame. The goal: planetary chaos.

Amidst this turmoil, the 7th Son's four surviving Beta Clones -- John, Father Thomas, Kilroy2.0 and Jack -- must defy their creators and hunt Alpha on their terms. Their mission: to stop the greatest assassination plot in history. The secrets John and his brothers discover will press them toward a final battle with their progenitor ... a battle in which the clones are outgunned, outnumbered and out of time.

Alliances will be made. Heroes will die. The end is nigh.

Destruction is the final novel in the J.C. Hutchins' 7th Son thriller trilogy.

I know this book already has 200 fabulous reviws but I just wanted to take a moment to say how utterly fantastic all the books in this series are!
JC, I have one request of you. DO NOT. DO NOT let some stupid director put his "artistic touch" on your story, when (not if!) they make this into a movie. Don't do it. Keep a TIGHT REIGN on those stinking rats. Don't let them muck it up.
I'm a through and through Sigler fan, and you can compare Hutch to Sigler. They are no where near the same, but you can compare them and find some similarities. My favorite similarity is the use of the narrator. The narrator throughout the story matches in EVERY aspect to the ...
So enthralled with this world of 7th Son, when, on a recent episode of 24, Jack Bauer felt the U.N. should be evacuated, I was surprised that they didn't evacuate thru Evac Sys.

This was my first Podiobook... WOW! I loved it, I didn't want it to end! Thank you for the great writing.

Whilst this series was what got me into audiobooks initially, it would have been really good if the bad guys had won this round! That way, there would be more!
My love for this trilogy is never-ending. I finished all three books recently and I had to give my regards to the author, the audio editor, and the music artists - this book and its sisters are the best thing I have read yet this year, and last year. The ...
