Between Heaven and Earth
Close to the Heel
CM Magazine - September 7, 2012
"The great part about this series is that the books can be read in any order as the stories happen simultaneously and separately from one another, while still being linked...This series is going to be very popular with older elementary and younger high-school audiences, particularly boys...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."
CanLit for Little Canadians blog - February 7, 2012
"Readers can look forward to Richard Scrimger's sense of humour, Norah McClintock's sense of mystery, John Wilson's take on history, Shane Peacock's dark plotting, Eric Walters' character-building challenges, Ted Staunton's musicality, and Sigmund Brouwer's problem-solving strategies to enrich the tales. Definitely a series for all readers."
