SpecMusicMuse Review: The Seventh Throne (Rising Dawn Saga, Book 3) – Stephen Zimmer

The third book in Stephen Zimmer’s Rising Dawn saga, The Seventh Throne, continues the adventures of Benedict Darwin and the gang while introducing new big bads like Ares and Set.

 

Benedict gets kidnapped and tortured for information by the government, Gregory leads an armed resistance against the hijacked UCAS, and Friedrich partakes a quest into the Abyss in search of Erishkigal. And all as martial law gets declared on the UCAS, the Abundant Harvest virus is unleashed onto the world, and war is declared between the UCAS and Mandaria.

 

You’ll find twists and turns galore as Zimmer continues his epic saga. And his descriptions of the Abyss is just as vivid, detailed, and (darkly) fascinating as Purgatarion—drawing from myths from many diverse cultures. The third installment is just as much a page turner as the second was.

 

Also, Erishkigal FTW!

 

Best to read while listening to: Epica, Nightwish, Metallica, Megadeth…and maybe some Enya for the Abyss scenes just to mess with your head even further (hehehehe). Just kidding. Enya works for Purgatarion. Midnight Syndicate is perfect for the Abyss scenes.
