"This novel certainly succeeds in motivating readers to continue the series, and discover the assignments given to the other cousins...The adventure elements and the French history hit the target."
CM Magazine - September 7, 2012
"Part mystery and part adventure, Last Message is a fantastic and thrilling page-turner that is a perfect antidote to the glut of paranormal romance and Hunger Games-esque science fiction that have been flooding the shelves...This series is going to be very popular with older elementary and younger high-school audiences, particularly boys. Last Message is a great crossover series from junior to teen collections, and it would be well-suited to either category. Readers that are fond of action and adventure series like Alex Rider or Young James Bond will find something to like in this series. The "Seven" series is a must-purchase for public and school libraries that are looking to add more action and adventure stories to their collections for older children and teens. Highly Recommended."
Kirkus Reviews - September 1, 2012
"The missions [Adam is] assigned are amusing and suspenseful...An unusual tale."
YALSA YA Galley Teen Review - August 21, 2012
"The way that Peacock moved the story along was wonderfully unexpected. He didn't reveal too much or too little in any one place...Together with the other books, these make a great series."
