"As a second book Seven Wonders ticks all the right boxes, it is a thrilling rollercoaster ride where the reader feels the wind in their hair, and their cape flapping behind them." - Philip Norris
"Readers of comics, especially from the Bronze Age (70’s and mid 80’s) are going to find a lot to like in Seven Wonders, as I did."
- Paul Weimer, Functional Nerds
"Capturing the true spirit of spandex-clad hero comics is not an easy task ... Adam Christopher manages [it] with style and panache. He evokes classic comic book writers such as Busiek, Moore, Morrison and Gaiman, and yet retains a unique style and sense of a world." - Starburst Magazine
"Seven Wonders is an artfully plotted and thrilling action-adventure with some satisfying set-piece confrontations and amazingly rounded characterisation." - The Guardian
"...the atmosphere, and the world building, is spot on. The super powered fighting also has the right comic book feel to them, but with a more adult touch to them, where there is actual bloodshed. Adam Christopher has once again brought something new to a old genre." - Betwixt Book Reviews
"I had an absolute blast reading this. The Superheroes (and villains) are as wonderfully flawed and fallible as they are powerful. The plot is satisfyingly labyrinthine, and the overall experience is stunningly cinematic. I genuinely don't have a single bad word to say about it." - Fantasy Bytes
"A cool, clever, wickedly twisty superhero story. You can, and will, provide your own pictures..." - Mike Carey, New York Times bestselling writer of The Unwritten and X-Men
"A blast of pure pleasure. This is Watchmen meets NYPD Blue, while The Incredibles stroll by; fast-moving action infused with Christopher’s infectious love of pulp fiction and the superhero genre."
- Philip Palmer, author of Red Claw, Artemis and Hell Ship
"Superheroes, we’ve always been told, are far above the common man in both powers and nobility, but Adam Christopher unrelentingly tells the story of heroes struggling to guide the world long after they’ve lost their own way. 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."
- Paul Tobin, author of Prepare to Die!, Spider-Girl and Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man
“Seven Wonders is everything that’s great about superhero novels - a fast pace, a complicated plot, iconic characters, and an unlimited effects budget. Absolutely wonderful.”
- Seanan McGuire, New York Times Bestselling author of Discount Armageddon and Ashes of Honor
