The Voice, the Revolution and the Key (The Epic Order of the Seven) by Jenny L. Cote is a revolutionary novel, complex in its characters, beautiful in the atmosphere it evokes, and extraordinary in plot. Readers will revisit the 1775 American Revolution and get acquainted with fictional, fabled characters that will arrest their attention in an irresistible way. Seven characters (pets) from different countries and backgrounds are entrusted with the task to protect their heroes and ensure that the voice of the revolution be transformed into an act of chivalry. Watch the small, black French cat, the Scottish terrier, Max, and their companions in a breathless drama that sets the events that would change the course of history. Emotionally charged and hilarious, this novel is the kind you can’t put down.
This book is so unique and offers a very different perspective on historical novels. It is hard not to enjoy the fable, not to connect with the powerful emotions displayed by the characters that — considering their species — act, speak, and think like humans. Jenny L. Cote weaves great dialogues into a spellbinding story. The language is “sans pareille” and there is no way the reader won’t feel intimately involved in the story. Whether it is Al shouting with glee at victory, or Liz wondering what her next move would be in a stream of consciousness, the drama feels so real that the reader is connected with the characters. I had wonderful moments with these characters like when: “Al sat up excitedly. 'I get to live with the KING?! Hooray, another palace!' he cheered, but then frowned. 'I’ll miss me lass, though.' He enveloped Liz in a smothering hug.” The Voice, the Revolution and the Key (The Epic Order of the Seven) is a classic, a fable that will transport readers into another era and make them feel like they are watching history unfolding before their gaze. A delightful read, indeed. The humor was gorgeous! I just became a fan of Jenny L. Cote and can’t wait for the next books in the series.
