AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is "The Beta Version" of this podiobook. 7th Son: Descent is now available as a print novel from St. Martin's Press. During the editorial process, significant changes and improvements were made to Descent's print manuscript. Character names were changed, and events at the end of the print novel were modified in ways that will impact the rest of the print trilogy. The print novel represents an official reboot of the 7th Son series.

Due to these changes, this "Beta Version" of Book Two: Deceit is no longer the "official" version of the podiobook. Please visit the 7th Son: Descent (The Print Edition) page to subscribe to the definitive beginning of the trilogy. You're welcome to continue the series with this version of Deceit, but understand that you will encounter slight inconsistencies in character names and plot references.

THE STORY
Two days ago, seven human clones -- John, Michael, Father Thomas, Dr. Mike, Jonathan, Jack and Kilroy2.0 -- were torn away from their "normal" lives to stop a ruthless plot created by their progenitor, a man code-named John Alpha. Their quest was a descent into conspiracy, violence and death.

The clones were successful in their mission, but victory was not without its price.

As 7th Son: Book Two - Deceit begins, the Beta clones are demoralized, reeling from their loss ... and about to learn that John Alpha's plans are far from over.

To prevent the next phase of Alpha's plan, John, Kilroy2.0, and the others must unearth more dark secrets about the government project from which they were spawned. They will experience the horrors of betrayal, and race cross-country to track John Alpha.

And they will finally realize the scope of Alpha's wrath -- the bloodshed the clones have witnessed is merely a prelude to the world-rending destruction to come. Unless they can stop it first.

Deceit is the second novel in J.C. Hutchins' 7th Son thriller trilogy.

Excellent audio book! The music is extremely annoying between chapters. I listen in my car on my way to work. I have to turn up the volume to hear the audio clearly. Then the music blows out my freaking speakers. If book 3 starts the same thing, I will not continue to listen I'm sorry to say.

Unfortunately this is a classic example of a person who wrote a book and then decided to turn it into a trilogy--the author felt no responsibility to make the second book stand alone. The first book was great, but this was a letdown--and the attempt at a cliffhanger ending didn't ...

In responds to some reader’s blogs: going into book one, the audience knows this was a trilogy so cliffhangers were expected. Cons: There were some uncharacteristic parts where the protagonists were slow to catch on or act. Pros: Fast paced story with many twists left the reader constantly eager for ...

This is Premier league quality entertainment.... Seriously good stuff. At the start of the book (and following on from book 1) there were a few "Yes but that doesn't make sense because of...." questions running through my head. But by the end of the book I realised that J.C, Alpha ...

I enjoyed book 1 reasonably well, but by book 2 the uneven science started to bother me enough to stop listening halfway through book 2. The action in the series is nice, but scientists might be bothered by the inconsistencies. For example: In book one it is mentioned that the ...

Although some may pick hairs you cant dispute that this book was brilliant. Personally I usually look forward to the good guys deaths as much as the bad guys, but did feel for michael (which is not like me!) Great story and multi directional plot, I prefered this to book ...

I like my sci fi with one foot clearly in our current world...so that I can get into the whole "believing"..."relating"... and this does it . I think this is a clever, intricately plotted book that totally had me hooked to the characters and the action. I can't believe anyone ...

Listened to 1.0 and passed on the beta. Just got around to it. Didn't think you could improve on the original but I was wrong. Way to go. Also LOVED hearing the stable of my favorite podcasters doing the story-so-far. Like a family reunion. Way to go Hutch!
