From the Back Cover
The worst was supposed to be over. We were reunited after a decade apart. We were discovering the truth about our past. We were training and getting stronger every day. We were even happy. . . .
We never imagined the Mogadorians could turn one of our own against us. We were fools for trusting Five. And now Eight is lost forever. I would do anything to bring him back, but that's impossible. Instead, I will do whatever it takes to destroy every last one of them.
I've spent my entire life hiding from them, and they've stolen everything away from me. But that stops now. We're going to take the battle to them. We have a new ally who knows their weaknesses. And I finally have the power to fight back.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
Number Three in Kenya.
And Number Eight in Florida.
They killed them all.
I am Number Seven.
I will make them pay.

Having said all this, the series is enjoyable but again, there needs to be a clearly defined pathway through the five novels and nine novellas. Knowing the correct reading order is essential to understanding the back stories of characters and how they fit with the main novels - particularly when it comes to Adam and Five. Trying to read "The Revenge of Seven" without having first read "The Lost Files: Hidden Enemy" will lead to confusion for the reader. Reading the five main novels alone, is certainly not the path to take. In fact, Adam's appearance in the previous book "The Fall of Five" will seem mysterious without having read the first Lost Files novellas which tell of his relationship with Number One. It would be most helpful if Amazon or the publisher of the series could print the suggested reading order online so as to help newcomers to the series.
John’s group have just fled the John Hancock building, after losing Ella, and are now deciding what to do.
Six’s group are in shock over losing Eight, and Marina is determined to get his body back.
And this is a large part of the start of the book, Six’s group going to a base in the swamp to get Eight’s body back. Whilst John’s group split. Sarah makes contact with Mark James (set up now from the ‘Return to Paradise’ short story) and decides to join him and his cyber fight. Adam comes up with a plan that is against what the Garde normally do, using his Mog tactics to assist them, and although this does cause some friction, the group realises how useful he is going to be.
The remainder of the book runs as two main stories with some extras. The first of the stories follows John (4) Sam, Nine and Agent Walker (who has realised that Mogs are bad) head to New York to try and thwart the Mogadorian plans for Invasion. The second follows Six, Marina and Adam as they head to a ‘Special’ location that is going to change the world forever.
The sub-stories involve Sarah ducking off to meet up with Mark James and the mysterious ‘Guard’ from the ‘Lost Files’, possibly allowing for additional material there. They don’t get their own story lines as such, but periodically check into the story. Ella also gets to check in every now and then via her telekinesis to add extra plot twists.
This leads to a fairly in-depth plot twist, with a really fast moving story.
The characters have each started to get their defined roles now, and the author has obviously decided to angle towards this. John (4) has clearly stepped out as the leader of the group, and everyone, although eager to criticise when things go wrong, happily defer to him when it's decision time. Nine is the brute force of the group, but also the ‘Military’ arm of their group – always seeking to solve things through force. Six has leadership qualities as well, often becoming the second in charge as needed when the group splits. Marina has become the moral compass for the group, as well as their mobile medical unit. Sam is the plucky side kick, but he also provides John with the strength to continue fighting at times, as well as a sounding board. Sarah is John’s reason for living, and gives him a reason for fighting, she is the heart and soul of the group. Eight represents all that they have lost. Ella is all that they are fighting for. Ella is also something that holds the group together. Through her innocence, she brings the group together.
Adam gives us an understanding of the enemy, and also how things are also not so black and white.
It's very cleverly written as the characters interact with each other.
This series has slowly worked its way to this point giving us background story, building the characters, and it's in this part that you get an understanding of what it has all been about, and the start of the end game.
And there is a surprise at the end that is just awesome!
Revenge of the Seven is one of the best of the series so far.
Giant Mogadorian ships hover over all major cities. Their fighters flitting about. The Mogs and the mysterious men in black are working together. The people of earth are enthralled! Loriens are scattered again! After just finally finding one another. Everything is falling apart. ..WTH!?
Well, it seems with the gathering of the Loriens in the earlier books is all for naught. Setrakis Ra takes on human form (a beautiful human form at that) and is wooing the Earth's upper government into an alignment. And has been for some time!!
Sam's father was right, but he had no idea the depth of the insidious rot!
Promises of medical miracles, and advanced weaponry are just too persuasive...The reason for his desire to own all of the Lorien's legacy pendants becomes clear. He can assimilate their legacies. But that's not all they can do.
A mysterious place surfaces..."The Sanctuary"..A mysterious pyramid, somewhere in the center of a steamy jungle in southern Mexico protected by Lorien magic, perhaps holds the key to everything....The Mogs have it surrounded, but for a Mog to touch it's Lorien shield is instant ash time for Them.
The children of Loric fight on...(or flee on) after the traitorous number five nearly successfully engineers a trap that would have killed or captured most of the Loriens left,. He is at odds with himself now, when he realizes that Setrakis has lied to him as well... Ella is held captive by Setrakis Ra . He tells her of her lineage. Could it be true? The tall dark and cruel Mogadorian soldiers are just "Lab rats!" Born in a test tube with no souls, but Setrakis Ra is not one of them. He is something else entirely!! (No spoilers please) She refuses to believe or become part of what he insists is her destiny. Her legacy tells her that he might be right! But in her heart she is bound and determined to change the visions that haunts her; even as she watches helplessly as events unfold towards that exact end.
After Nines giant pent house goes up in flames; their hideout, their only place of respite...John does something that he thought he would never do: he sends Sarah away to be with her X boyfriend Mark! No way, right!? Well, It seems Mark is now the leader of the "They Walk Among Us" group. The once corny, and dubious alien conspiracy magazine is now an actual movement. Their secret is out after all. AND, also to get her to safety. He must find Six, Sam and the rest. He has to stop all this! There is going to be a Grand entrance held to welcome the new visitors to Earth. John is determined to be there to stop it! Ella's vision seems to be coming true right before our eyes folks!!
******Warning! The last bit HINTS at things to come*******
When five decides to try to make amends for his traitorous actions that caused the death of (?******?) ...it's almost too late. But his actions do help John and Ella reveal the true Setrakis to the misguided earthlings! Revealed at last ...will the bombs begin to fall?
