Summary via Goodreads:
First of five books. The Key of Credence tells us about Ryan and her friends and how their simple curiosity brought forth a multitude of problems to them. This book lets the readers experience an entirely new and different world—one that involves the Heavens and the Helles, and most of all—it shows how the humans themselves and how the innate goodness of their souls can create a huge difference on just about everything.
The Seven is one of those books that made me reminisce my childhood days. This is one of the reasons why I love reading Middle Grade books. There is something unsullied and just delightful about them that some YA books failed to have.
Moving on, I have so many things to like about The Seven. First of all, it was written by a Filipina. Isn’t that awesome? Veronica Mist is a natural story-teller. I love how she effortlessly weaved Sanctus Mundus into my head and lose myself with her story and characters. I felt instantly connected with the characters especially the protagonist, Ryan. Her friends, Danielle, Rie (I mean, Larisse! LOL) and Sam are also fantastic supporting characters. I had so much fun with their adventures and watching their friendship grow more stronger.
Another beautiful thing about the story is it is surrounded with moral values like the importance of friendship and loyalty and having courage and faith when facing adversity.
Bottomline, I genuinely enjoyed this book! I’ giving this a solid 4 out of 5 stars and I definitely recommend this.
