The bestselling Seven (the Series) comprises seven linked novels that can be read in any order. When David McLean, well-loved grandfather and avid adventurer, dies, he leaves behind an unusual will that outlines seven tasks he has set for his seven grandsons. Eric Walters, John Wilson, Ted Staunton, Richard Scrimger, Norah McClintock, Sigmund Brouwer and Shane Peacock bring their signature writing styles to a series of adventures that take readers from the top of Kilimanjaro to the bottom of the Mediterranean. 

The Seven series bundle includes Between Heaven and Earth, Lost Cause, Jump Cut, Ink Me, Close to the Heel, Devil's Pass and Last Message.


"Richly detailed and satisfying." —Kirkus Reviews

"Delivers handsomely with a resolution that satisfies but doesn’t simplify. Happily, there are six other titles in the series." —Booklist for Devil's Pass
