An extraordinary story about seven demons, seven angels, seven keys, seven keepers, seven deadly sins, seven virtues, seven heavens, seven helles...

The Seven - The Key of Credence by Veronica Mist exceeds expecations. Read it at least a dozen of times.

“Perfect Liberty follows no rules, law, or any virtue for that matter. It disregards respect, courteousness, and love.”

The Key of Credence. Credence means “Acceptance as true or valid; belief.”

As I read the novel for the first time, I was unsure of what the story has to offer me. What is it about? Will I enjoy it? I’m not really into YA and Harry Potter like books because I usually am not patient with the next installment of their books. But a very good friend, Ate Jho, made me read The Seven an

I did enjoy reading this book cause i feel like i was transported back to my childhood days, the way the charcters in the book seek adventures and at an early age they seek magic and they believe that they exist. just those couple of parts , this book really caught my attention cause as I've said I feel like

I actually did a blog on this book and see below an excerpt of my review:

This is a very interesting story and a great read, following the young protagonist, Ryan Trish McCauley and her three friends in their adventure, which put the girls in peril from time to time. As a reader, you'll be transported to a different world, where the Divine resides and angels fight. The author has created a magical world with highly likeable characters and fun-looking creatures, with a story gripping enough that y

One of the best things about reading a book is the fact that it keeps you longing, questioning, and continuously intrigued with the storyline to sustain your interest until the very last page of the final book. The Seven conjures up its own captivating world that fuses reality into the beauty of the mystical realm with a plot that will make readers wonder, imagine, and inherently hooked until the end has been revealed.

The book targeted for young adults explores on the fantasy that I'm sure every

Judging from the cover, you won’t expect a serious touch of story in the novel, well I didn’t. The story kinda remind me of the Percy Jackson series. First, they are of the same age, and at such a young age such a huge responsibility have been given. Then, you’ll meet lots of creatures I haven’t encountered from all of my paranormal genre readings before.
The story. It was A-okay. It started fine but towards the middle the story & pace picked up, much to my excitement. I liked how the main

from my column in Manila Bulletin: http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/340350/...

MANILA, Philippines — Credence is to believe and to trust the truth about something. It is that on which our faith lies.

I am not really an avid reader of fantasy books, but once I start reading one, I always feel like I am being transported into a world of make-believe, mesmerized, and never letting go of the book until I finish reading it down to the last page.

It was fun reading “The Seven: The Key of Credence,’’ a book

I enjoyed this book in a sense that it brought me back to my childhood fantasies. A definite page turner, a one of a hell imaginative world incorporated by the modern world and children.

A perfect read for Halloween and Fall.

Ryan, the main protagonist is a strong minded young girl but deep within her, I could actually feel that she's insecure and afraid. But at the end she actually find courage to face all that come her way to protect her family and friends.

I enjoyed the world of Intero Regnum, t

The Favored Ones. The Seven Holies. Demons from Helle. A war that has been waged for millennia. These are ingredients to an astounding storyline, and it takes superb story-telling skills to bring it all together. The author adeptly weaves fantasy and every-day-life as one, and even boldly ventures into the concept of religion and salvation. The characters themselves seem stereotyped at first with the protagonist playing as the defacto leader of the group. But due to their diversity and complexit ...more

Mist offered a story that has a little bit of everything, adventure, horror, paranormal and friendship. First of all, I would like to say that this is the first time that I’ve read a YA novel by a Filipina author and I can really see the Philippine influence in her work.

Ryan is too old to be considered a kid but too young to be considered a teen. I picture her as a 12 year old girl, nearing 13, in my mind. With fair skin, a blaze inside her that makes every

I totally love it! This book wakes the inner child within; the creative mind that can mold enchanting worlds, mythical creatures, and a magical adventure much like what the book made me imagine. I recommend reading it during Halloween season as this makes it more mystifying. :)

Can't wait to read how the next book will turn up. Romance? More adventures? Other discoveries about themselves and those around them? How about a test of friendship? Let the web weave again.

I wrote a review of this earlier in my blog...

Definitely recommended for young readers...

A book that values faith and friendship.

Veronica Mist is a Filipina who wrote the five-book story about four friends experiencing the clash of two worlds, the Heavens and the Helles, and involves fantastic mythical creatures like angels and demons.

I love how the author wrote a book not only to exceed on the fantasy boundary, but also to tie it with values, especially faith and friendship, both of whom are very important for the Filipino lineage. The

Totally loved this book! Not exactly the type of book that I would normally read, but surprisingly, I couldn't put it down!

I love all of the characters, not to mention that the plot is way different from those that I have read before. That the author is bold is an understatement.

If you are looking for an out of the ordinary tale, then this book is definitely for you!

To the author, congratulations! You have an outstanding debut novel! :)

The Seven is one of those books that made me reminisce my childhood days. This is one of the reasons why I love reading Middle Grade books. There is something unsullied and just delightful about them that some YA books failed to have.

Moving on, I have so many things to like about The Seven. First of all, it was written by a Filipina. Isn’t that awesome? Veronica Mist is a natural story-teller. I love how she effortlessly weaved Sanctus Mundus into my head and

The Seven – The Key of Credence by Veronica Mist is a good sign that in this time of ever changing technology and the ever shrinking ipod , there are still writers who use their imagination and take advantage of research with one click on Google.
The young heroines in the story, not only deal with young adulthood and fitting in with their circle of friends, but have to test the strength of their character and faith when faced with creatures beyond our world.
This book brings out the child in the

She's a pure blooded Filipino. She’s a day dreamer, a storyteller, an artist, an adventure seeker... or, as her friends and family fondly calls her - a psycho. Because of that fatuous character, she came about the story of The Seven, where all her fantasy of nonsensical being and world came about. The Seven the Key of Credence is her first novel. She lives in Philippines with her parents and sibli ...more
