7 is my first book in 2016 and what a way to start the new year! Wow was it an emotional roller coaster. I cried, swooned and even cursed at my kindle, but by the time I got to the end I was totally a mess of ugly cries. These authors put together such a unique book. You have 5 individual short stories that come together and creates a remarkable statement about the power of redemption.

Each scenerio is from a different time and place but follows one mans struggles in multiple lives. Tom's journey

This book has 7 different stories, well make that six parts and a bonus short story. Five authors got together and created one of the more memorable books I’ve read in 2015. Before reading this I have only read one of the authors in this collection but I have plans to read more of the others in the upcoming year. To be fair, there will be spoilers in this review. If you’d like to avoid the spoilers then just know this, this book holds heartache and hope, condemnation and redemption, it shows the

I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I made no guarantee of a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are unbiased and my own.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I began to read this book as it is the first of its kind that I personally read and let me tell you that  I was completely blown away by the talent of these amazing authors. I could not bring myself to put this book down. As I was reading it I was coming to my own conclusions but nothing prepared me for the reve

WOW! I am not sure I actually have the vocabulary to put together the sort of review this book deserves without revealing a ton of spoilers, which I refuse to do as this story REALLY needs to be read without them.

I knew that this book was different before I started, with 5 authors telling a series of stories, but all the stories somehow linking but what I WASN'T prepared for was the journey they were about to take me on.

Each author manages to maintain their own voice and yet each story easily r

My Thoughts:

Okay, I haven't even started writing yet and this is already, by-far, one of the most difficult reviews I have had to write to-date. Why? Because 7 is... well it's... complicated. Let's start from the beginning.

Several of those contributing authors should ring a bell if you are familiar with One Guy's Guide to Good Reads. I had the amazing pleasure of meeting all five of these authors this past June at Ut

I received this book as a gift from the author, Jo Michaels.
I was lucky and fortunate to have been with Jo when she was editing the additional short story at the end of the book, and became intrigued and excited about the book based on that story alone.

I thought 7 was a unique, fresh, clever, and interesting way of writing a historical fiction novel.
I liked how each of the five authors told their own individual stories written in a different, specific time period,but also how each individual

Very interesting take on the Seven Deadly Sins.

As someone who went to Catholic school for 13 years, and with a vast interest in Greco-Roman (and Latin) history, I am always game for a good Seven Deadly Sins tale. So you can imagine my excitement when I was told that's what this book was going to be about.

From the ladies of FRACTURED GLASS, I knew that I was going to be presented with something good. Something that was differ

I was super excited to get my hands on the newest book from the authors who brought readers the awesome Fractured Glass, which if you can’t tell by my calling it awesome, I loved. The idea of co-writing on such a scale, between five authors and not the more traditional two is so neat. It makes me want to be a part of something like this some day.

Anyhow, upon receiving this story I was told to expect something different, and that is exactly what I got. Broken up into six smaller story ar

The last three books I’ve read did not have one original thought in them. Not one. That’s not the case with 7: The Seven Deadly Sins by Casey L. Bond, Jo Michaels, Tia Silverthorne Bach, Kelly Risser, and N. L. Greene. The Five have done it again!!!! They’ve created a one-or-a-kind novel. Is there anything new under the sun. YES! And it’s 7!

Main character, Thomas, traverses through five distinct eras in time. Same man, but different scenarios. Each author nailed it! There is something for every

This is a fantasy mystery story,
made up of 5 short love stories.
Each story set in a different period of time.
Every story has a common theme
that will keep you guessing till the end.
Narrator Laura Jennings did a nice job.
Her soft voice and acting ability's are enjoyable.

I have read individual books by each author except NL Greene. I will have to say that these authors coming together and putting a collaboration like this was wonderful! This is my second read of 2016 and I can say that this book will stick with me for the rest of the year! I love how each author had their own time of history and their

What a start to my reading for 2016. 7 is unlike any reading experience I have ever had. These five talented authors have combined their writing skills and storytelling in the best possible ways to construct a seven part novel that I couldn't set down. I actually read the entire thing in one sitting. It was that good.

7 follows the story of 'Thomas' throughout five lifetimes and the trials he faces in each. Moving through time, Thomas' story starts from first century Rome all the way to 1995 Bro

Collaboration is defined as working together, especially in a joint intellectual effort.

Let me say that the authors of 7: The Seven Deadly Sins collaborated the H-E- double hockey sticks out of this story, especially in the intellectual effort part.

Asking questions such as…
Can an unforgivable sin be forgiven?
What if you had multiple lifetimes to atone?
Could you forgive yourself lifetimes of mistakes or would you recognize the beauty of your growth?
7: The Seven Deadly Sins answers these questions

Reading this book you would never know it was written by 5 different ladies. These stories were so incredible and fun to read. I enjoyed every single one of them. All so different but flowing together seamlessly. Even knowing there was going to be a twist at the end... I never suspected what it ended up being. I loved each of the characters and enjoyed going on this journey with them.

Whilst I would usually start my reviews with a synopsis I am struggling to know where to start, such are the twists in this tale. 7 parts in total, 5 are the stories of a life belonging to a man named Thomas; the other 2, well you’ll just have to wait and see - but they are a whole load of WOW! Each life of Thomas, from ancient Rome to ghetto New York weaves a story beset with emotion, choices and chances. It becomes clear that every incarnation of Thomas reflects a man with many loves, failings ...more

Absolutely loved this! It flowed so well you wouldn't even know it was written by separate authors. Every story was so unique and so captivating you never knew how it was going to end. I really enjoyed how it all came together in the end and would highly recommend reading this

This is such an interesting take on the 7 deadly sins. It's different and it totally rocked. This is a first time for me reading a few of these authors. They all had really good stories. Reading these stories it felt as though they were true from history and not something made up. Each story comes from a different place and time but it is all the stories of Tom.. In the end Tom has to face his sins. I am here to tell you if you are looking for a happy end you wont find it here. These are story's ...more

I'll start my review by saying that I don't usually read books in this genre. I saw the reviews, and met one of the authors, and decided to give it a fair chance. I am very happy that I did! :)

There were six different story lines, and a sort of bonus at the end. With a paranormal touch overall, the five stories are a take on historical romance each with a different setting and degree of romance. We visit Ancient Rome and come almost full circle to the 1990s. I love romance, but these aren't your

This isn't the first book I have read from these talented ladies, nor shall it be the last. I might be bias when it comes to them for I am one of their biggest fans. Without hesitation I purchased the book once available, though it did take me a while to get to it.

At first I was weary, thinking this would be like the movie Seven and I was way wrong. This is a tale of the journey of Thomas, one that will make you cry, identical to the first eight minutes of the movie Pixar's Up. Only one of the

This book is so good. Written by 5 authors telling a story in different periods of life. First, I could not put this book down. There were 7 stories told and each one involved the same man. In each story he endures heartache, pain, happiness, love, trust etc. What is most important, this man is tested in each and every one of these lives. There are seven deadly sins, and he most find peace and Redemption for them all. Of course we are all human, we all sin. It's about finding forgiveness in your ...more

I won a paperback copy of this book from a giveaway on Facebook & first off, I want to say: the book itself is beautiful. I love the format used, the story headings, etc.

Now, onto the story itself:
I loved how this was a story within a story, well I guess technically it was a few stories within a story. And, the story was unique - each of the stories were unique. Not only did it give you a taste of something new, there was a little something old mixed in - in the form of morals. I refuse to say

This was a great book! While I am not a huge novella fan, I very much enjoyed this collection of short stories. The way that all the stories came together was amazing. And the final story, WOW!

I was gifted this book by a friend who loved it so much she thought that I should read it. I'm glad she did!

There are seven deadly sins. Each one can condemn your soul. I have seen/read many interpretations of the seven deadly sins. This one is brilliant!

Without giving anything away, each story was unique yet they all tie in together and when I reached the end, my mind was blown! A definite must read!

A gripping tale of reincarnation, redemption, and mythology, “7: The Seven Deadly Sins” is a book that will grip the reader from beginning to end!

Read full review in the 2016 April issue of InD'tale Magazine.

Interesting story line

Five stories of a man and women. The man, Thomas, in each story of a life he is living encounters a sin or sins and the decision of temptation for the said sin determines the destiny for that life and that of the women he loves. But the trials are a fraction of the true trial, the one seeking redemption. Good story idea but could have been.... more sinful.
