Title: The Colossus Rises (Seven Wonders #1)
Author: Peter Lerangis
Published: February 5, 2013
Length: 348 pages
Jack McKinley is an ordinary kid with an extraordinary problem. In a few months, he’s going to die.
Jack needs to find seven magic loculi that, when combined, have the power to cure him.
The loculi are the relics of a lost civilization and haven’t been seen in thousands of years.
Because they’re hidden in the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
how did i get it?
Thought it looked really cool and saw that it was on sale on Audible, so I decided to get it. I also didn’t realize that my brother had read it before as well, and since he didn’t remember it, we may do a buddy read.
when did i get it?
August 21, 2017 (thanks Audible!)
why do i want to read it?
Because my brother recommended this, although he doesn’t remember everything that happened. It makes me want to read it with him now.
I can’t believe it’s been two years (well, pretty much) since I bought this on Audible, and I still haven’t touched it. It was cool that my brother ended up reborrowing it from the library while I was home, so hopefully we can read it together and see what’s going on. Who has read this one? I mean, I don’t think I’ve read anything with the seven wonders of the world as the main topic, so I’m excited about this one.
