Reviewed by Lynette Fowlston for Readers' Favorite

Seven by Paige Agnew is a story that one can get involved in quite easily. Written in three parts, dealing with seven strangers who all live in the same area but really do not know each other. However, in one way or another they have had some kind of contact with each other. Each have their own story to tell as we meet them: Kariann, a single mother, Greg, a lawyer, Tommy and Cecilia, two runaways and Hazel, Kyle and Jonathan are three high school students. One thing they will all have in common though is they are all about to be kidnapped.

Seven strangers who find themselves at the whim of a psycho who calls himself Seven. They soon discover that each of them has a special gift, whether it be mind reading, healing or premonitions. Now they have to learn to work together to survive.

I found this book very hard to put down once I got involved in the lives of these seven individuals. Trying to figure out just who Seven is and how he can have such a hold over thousands of different individuals without being seen is mind boggling. This book is suspenseful at the beginning and then turns more thrilling. The stories in the first part of the book do bounce back and forth between each individual, but I did not find myself getting lost. The book is cleanly written and can be enjoyed by any age from teens on up. NOTE: I have read a copy that does need extensive editing before being published.
