Seven Wonders

Seven Wonders - Adam Christopher This one has an usual arc. The moral voice and main character disappears half way through and I felt the loss such that I had a hard time connecting after that. Didn't know who to root for. Christopher has amazing talent but for me he often takes his plots off on tangents and winds up somewhere unexpected it ways that let me down. Such was the case for me with "Empire State" as well. But when he's on, he hooks you and it's hard to let go.
