The Year of the Great Seventh

By Teresa Orts

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"You own me an explanation .Tomorrow, 6 p.m. at my place .Don't get excited. Dad will be home, watching your moves"

Sophie and Nate aren't your average teenagers.

Although, it's their junior year at high school, Sophie has already set a goal and she's determined to achieve it no matter the cost.
Meet Nate Werner. Nate comes from money and it shows .Nate isn't Prince Charming but he's definitely devastatingly gorgeous. Behind the beauty ,though, lies the monster. You see, Nate's "cursed". Apparently, the curse is carried in the bloodline. It's passed on the youngest in the bloodline when the older dies. Nate thinks that the curse cannot be broken until he meets Sophie. Together they go through an adventure to find the "cure" before their time runs out. The clock is ticking....

I enjoyed the book. I liked the fact that in the beginning of the book Nate is a mystery to us and later when the book progresses we learn bits and pieces about his life and we understand why he was so secretive and hostile against Sophie. They were both such strong characters.

I liked the secondary characters as well. Her friends, Megan, Emma and Tyson were very loyal to her.

However, I hated Nate's family. All of them. Not only his parents who were inexcusable but also his cousin, Preston.

All in all, I loved the book. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. I had to find out what was going to happen .And just let me tell you this "The book is a cliffhanger.The Year of the Great Seventh is a romance-mystery book filled with Egyptian history/mythology. It's bound to intrigue you. I totally recommend it!

Looking forward to reading the sequel. Hope it comes out soon...

*Thank you Teresa for giving me the opportunity to read your book!


Sophie has always felt out of step—an outsider, even amongst friends in her high school with all the hype about celebrity culture. Her life in L.A. seems to have been already written for her, but when her junior year starts, it all takes a drastic turn. When she crosses paths with the school's heartthrob, Nate Werner, they fall for each other in a way neither can understand. What they don’t know is that by giving in to their desires, they are unlocking an ancient Egyptian prophecy that threatens to return Earth to the dark ages.

To undo the curse, Nate and Sophie embark on an adventure that takes them across the country. But their quest is not only to save the world as they know it. It is also a fight for their very survival. Behind the scenes, there are those that are counting on them to fail.
