The Seventh Seed by Allison Maruska is an action packed thriller that includes a corrupt government, greedy pharmaceutical companies, and absolute power. It could be viewed as a future possibility of the United States. Javier, one of the main characters, sets things in motion as he is on the run for his life, without all the pieces to the puzzle of why. He did something great, or so he thinks. So why would people be out to kill him? His journey leads him across the country and finally to Washington DC as the climax unfolds.
It’s not easy for anyone to write a book that encompasses many different groups of people including the military, the public at large, and enough main characters to hold the plot and storyline together. But the author pulled it off without bogging the reader down in details which could have stalled the story. Instead, she allowed the story to unfold at a natural pace, while developing the characters nicely, allowing them to be flawed and realistic. I could easily relate to them. Although the point of view switches almost constantly—a necessity for this story—it was done in a way that makes sense. I think what I enjoyed most of all was the action. Fast paced, pulling me in as a reader, and once I started reading longer sections at a time, I found it hard to stop reading. Truly an enjoyable book. I recommend The Seventh Seed by Allison Maruska for those who enjoy fast-paced suspense fiction.
