Great Read of The Week

Happy May 13th!!!

To update what's up with my book, I have rewritten all the way to chapter 30 of 33. Now I'm working on typing it up. :) You can see teaser chapters of it at I will also be putting up a few chapters and a cast list on here over the next few weeks, so stay posted. ;)

Alright, now today I'm going to being revealing a new section called "Great Read of the Week". This will be a weekly Thursday post, where me or Chris will reveal a book that some people may not heard of, but are actually really good.

The book I'm going to be talking about is The Seventh Tower. This is a six book series by Garth Nix. The story follows Tal, a 13-year old boy who lives in a world where the sun is blocked by a mysterious veil. Tal is a "chosen", someone who with the ability to control special shadows called "spiritshadows", that lives in the Castle, a place that is divided onto seven sectors, or towers, which are named after one of the colors of the raindow. Depending on the color, you are considered either higher or lower classed in society. In order of highest in power to lowest: Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red. Tal belongs to the orange order, thus giving his family almost no power in the castle. But one day, Tal finds himself grappling to discover the secret of his father's disappearance, and thus begins a journey where he will meet an evil once thought to be long gone and together with a barbaric outsider named Milla, will attempt to save the war from a inpending war and doom.

This is a great read, and I recommend you pick it up. The first book is "The Fall" for anyone intrigued!! Have a great day!
