"Finn has written a thriller filled with poetic narrative, a noir-style voice, and gritty characters. I am extremely impressed."
- Phillip Tomasso, Author of Vaccination
"If you enjoy police dramas and the paranormal with a human twist, this book is definitely in your realm. Points for originality!"
- Lauren Pesci, Movies and Manuscripts
"The Seventh Sons blends a dark noir feel with horror for a read that's tense, exciting, and inventive. I was hooked - first by the characters and then by the labyrinthine turns of the plot. Domino Finn writes with detail and clarity."
- Erica Lucas
From the Inside Flap
Before the vocals had a chance to start, Maxim switched the station. His wife loved that song, and she was the last thing he wanted to think about now.
He leaned back in his faded green sedan. The headrest scratched his head where the fake leather had cracked. It was a familiar feeling, and not entirely uncomfortable. Sitting in his car for long periods of time was part of the job.
These days, working was the only thing keeping him going. Even at night, when he was technically off the clock, when there was nothing going on, he desperately needed the distraction. But his world was filled with reminders.
A song. A memory. A glimmer of the full moon reflecting off his silver wedding band.
It was funny, he thought. As much as he avoided thinking about Lola, he still wore the ring. He supposed it was his last shred of duty. Like a string tied to his pinky, it was a reminder he told himself he needed. Even if it cut off his circulation. Even if it strangled him.

The storyline was well thought out, the characters detailed enough for you to get to know what drives them, the events happening at an excellent pace to keep you reading. Finally, the sentence structure with a lack of typos keep you completely enthralled, turning page after page as the story unfolds. Before you realize it, you've reached the end of the book. I just love when that happens, it's a sure sign of excellent writing. Saving the best for last, no nasty cliffhangers to leave you hanging unless you buy the next in the series.
I would definitely recommend this book to those readers who enjoy a break from reality every now and then. I can't wait to read the next in the series.
1. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. When I received the copy and realized it involved werewolves, I confess I put it down after the first few pages and tried to pretend I didn't receive it (I OD'd on Anne Rice novels over 25 years ago and vowed never to return to vampires or werewolves). Out of feelings of guilt, I decided I owed Mr. Finn the courtesy of reading his book, but I couldn't find it on my Kindle. So I purchased the book, which leads me to:
2. My apology to Mr. Finn. I must admit that when I finally decided to read the book without prejudice, I was totally intrigued by how the author managed to combine a police procedural/bio-hazard thriller with a story involving biker-werewolves! Outrageous!
I mean, who thinks this stuff up? Mr. Finn, obviously. And somehow he has turned what could have been the screwiest plot line ever into an engagingly readable novel that makes the paranormal just one piece of a really interesting crime story with a cast of truly unique characters, each driven by believable motives. This combination of true emotions, well-drawn characters, solid descriptions of police work and government interference in a Wild West setting totally works.
I won't say anything more because I don't want to spoil the surprises for readers who decide to get this book. I'll just end by saying, "Go ahead -- try it, you'll like it." Enjoy.
P.S. Thank you Mr. Finn, for tilting my world view.
This arrangement is standing procedure until Maxim stirs the pot. A biker is murdered at the Sycamore Lodge and Maxim decides that it is time for someone to dig into the motorcycle club. Something is not right and he intends to find out just what it is. Diego begins to tell Maxim about the werewolves, but sometimes you must see to believe. When two bikers flee police custody by demolishing a hospital room and escaping by jumping from a window, Maxim is convinced. No human had the strength to cause that kind of destruction. Before long he realizes that both he and Diego are looking for missing loved ones and somehow The Seventh Sons and the werewolves play a part in the disappearances.
Before long the government waltzes into the area and a conspiracy begins to unravel. Diego stumbles across an underwater graveyard, three people jump to their deaths, and sweet old Mom knows all about it. Follow along as greed, experiments, betrayal, and the supernatural blend together is an action packed tale that kept me turning the pages. Will silver bullets kill the werewolves? Will Diego and Maxim find their loved ones and will they still be human if they do? Help comes from the unexpected as the truth about modern werewolves unfolds.
I really enjoyed this book! The author developed the characters in such a way that I could feel what they felt and I understood the pain of both the good and bad guys. The book cover became more meaningful as I realized the significance of the weapon shown. I do consider the cover before I buy a book and I would purchase this one thinking of murder. It is about murder, but read it and I guarantee that you will find so much more! I recommend this book to anyone who likes a little supernatural, love, and action along with mystery. I am definitely waiting for a sequel.
