Joseph Delaney’s bestselling Spook’s series is set to be made into a film. So why should you bother reading the books?  Well, for MANY reasons…

Don’t be kept waiting

Seventh Son was first set to come out in February 2013. That’s almost 2 years ago! The fantasy movie starring Jeff Bridges has had its release date pushed back four times already from Feb 2013, to Oct 2013 to Jan. 2014… and now finally to the 27th March 2015.

If you are done with waiting, what better way to spend the two months before the movie comes out, than by reading the books it was adapted from?

I do not like to be kept waiting

More of a good thing

1 film vs  13 books! Joseph Delaney has written 13 books following the antics of the Spook, so you get more thrills and more adventures

Missing out favourite lines

We always advocate reading the books AND watching the film. The two are never going to be exactly  the same and by overlooking one you’ll enevitably end up missing some people’s favourite bits out. Imagine all the hilarious or life changing moments you could be missing out on by not reading the books. Just think all the people who have only seen the Hunger Games movies, have completely missed out on the line “Well don’t expect us to be too impressed. We just saw Finnick Odair in his underwear.”

Teen fiction

We are very excited to see the beautiful Ben Barnes staring as Thomas Ward, especially after Joseph Delaney said he was a “great action hero who is the true star of ‘Seventh Son’”. In the books Thomas is quite a lot younger than in the films and we love having relatable, kick-ass, teen characters!
