7th Son, Book One: Descent is the story of seven men, all strangers, who’ve been gathered together following the assassination of the president of the United States. Though they’ve never met before they seem to have something very important in common, namely identical childhood memories! It seems they were the progeny of a covert human cloning experiment – now, brought together for the first time since their creation, all seven of these “John Michael Smiths” are tasked with tracking down the assassin who murdered the president. Something they are uniquely equiped to do because their target is the man they were cloned from; the original John Michael Smith, code-named John Alpha.
I got a sneak pre-hear of the first five chapters and I can attest this is no pale replication of any SF thriler you’ve heard before. Hutchins’ prose is lucent, his ideas original 7th Son, Book One: Descent blends the verve of Philip K. Dick with the slick modern storytelling techniques of Lincoln Child.
