I have to say I love the cover to this book. It reminds me of The Northern Lights by Philip Pullman and in many ways the story telling compares favourably with it. Definitely an adventure with plenty of intrigue and an intricate plot, I was quickly immersed in the story and enjoyed it to the very last page. Nicely set up for another book I'm very much looking forward to it.

I begin this review before having finished the book...

The basic premise of "The Seventh Seal (The Chronicles of Daniel Stone Book I)" is that of multiple dimensions of earth; Earth & Arthe are twins, and then there's Thera. Thera is like an axis wherein the 'balance' between good and evil, natural and unnatural is maintained.

This balance is overseen by The (Seal)Keepers, by means of the regulus, a mechanism which has abilities of observation remarkably similar to our most powerful of surveillanc

I picked up the Seventh Seal in a group where authors could present their books and if you chose to you could read and review one of them. The cover of The Seventh Seal caught my eye so I decided to read it.

I read the book twice before I really got it! The first time through I was kind of ho-hum, because I realized it wasn’t the kind of book that I normally chose to read, and I didn’t actually appreciate the depth of it, until I got to the “A Bibliography of sorts!” Then I began to understand h

I was able to read this book through booktasters (http://twitter.us12.list-manage.com/s...)

First of all thank you for letting me read such an incredible book.

I am a fantasy book lover. I read a variety of different genres but at the end of the day I love to read a good fantasy book. As I started the book I just knew this book is going to be awesome. I just could tell how the book is written and the idea behind the book. I think this book has a real complexity and is not as easy to read. I totall

In The Seventh Seal, Dobbs masterfully thrusts the reader into a rich story of parallel realities and unassuming heroes similar in scale and depth to Phillip Pullmans Dark Materials trilogy. The unique and utterly captivating story is complemented by stunningly descriptive vistas and well written dialogue. 

As a coming of age story, it is in a league of its own and may be recommended to young adults and adults alike. What makes it so interesting is Dobbs' ability to fill such a page turner of a b

I received this book through Amazon and let me say, I was not at all disappointed. It's been awhile since a book has captivated my attention and triggered me to use my imagination quite like this book. Going in and out of the three worlds: Earth, Arthe, and Thera while following the journey of Daniel as he faces the ripple effect of his father's role as the Keeper and this new found role he is suppose to take on while trying to escape the evil grasp of Smee, is simply a must read.

I got back to my fantasy roots after a couple of recent forays into new genres. I’d seen this book talked about on Twitter and it was in my Goodreads recommendations, so I picked it up. Here are my thoughts on The Seventh Seal (The Chronicles of Daniel Stone #1) by A. J. Dobbs.

Synopsis (from the author):
Fifteen year old Daniel Stone’s world is turned upside down when he is kidnapped by the villainous Odling Smee. He learns that his late father was one of the seven Keepers of Thera charged with

“The Seventh Seal” by AJ Dobbs is a multi-threaded novel that is part traditional fantasy and part contemporary tale. The book opens with dawn breaking over a Welsh village and is a remarkably vivid opening given its brevity. It draws the reader in rapidly, sparking interest early on. And once he has you hooked, he doesn’t let go.

Dobbs tells his story unflashily yet effectively, often using everyday similes that are well within the experiences of his young readers whilst still being striking. Fo

An amazing first attempt, well executed with quantum mechanical references makes for an original concept.
I suggested it to my daughters who absolutely loved reading it, so much so their teacher of the whole 6th form made it an english project!

From the begining I was asking questions. This book was different from other fantasy plots. The idea of different worlds/dimensions is not a new one but this book had me guessing where it was going and I was intrigued about how it would end.
It didn't fail to deliver. The voice of the characters was different, they came across as individuals. People I would have liked to know more about but the plot moved along sweetly. Daniel was a strong personality. His unique and bewildering twist in his lif

I'm probably a bit old for reading this, but I did enjoy it. A combination of science fiction and fantasy made it hard to put down once I'd started reading it. I recommend it and look forward to reading the next chapter

This book reminded me of Pullman's Dark Materials. It is full of depth and is fascinating for those who like epic fantasy. I enjoyed that the book was written in a language that is easy to read. I believe this makes it also accessible for young adults and not only for adults. I enjoyed how well the author had developed the villain Smee and the action scenes kepte me wanting to find out more. Great book!
