The Seven Signs: 3 : Wipeout product reviews

Exploding oil wells.
Millions of cars out of control.
Two DARE winners in mortal danger.

After Andy and Dylan are caught in a fiery explosion, Zander, Yasmin, JJ, Isabel and Mila realise their only chance to stop the next attack is to get one step ahead of The Signmaker.

But the evil mastermind is far from their only problem, with the DARE winners now on the run from police, government agents and sinister suited thugs.

Nowhere is safe. No-one can be trusted.

Can they stay free long enough to decode the Third Sign, stop the next attack and reveal The Signmaker's true identity?

If you could be a hero, would you DARE?

Seven Signs. Five days left to save the world.

This is an interesting series. With a number of terrorist attacks, the toll that they take seems to accelerate with every subsequent attack. The scale of these events are already so large, however, that just finding out what the next attack is going to be, is as intriguing as the protagonists attempts to decode the signs to stop it. I almost want to see the main characters fail just to see how the plan falls into place.

The story is rather easy to follow. As with the previous books, the story is split into many small chapters that make it very easy to read. Each chapter comes from the point of view of a certain group/person as often the characters will split up due to the "time constraints" set up in the book. As opposed to the previous installments, we find the story is a lot easier to follow as the protagonists are together for most of this book, removing the switching between characters and story lines that we usually have (or they split into larger groups, in which case the number of running plot lines is still drastically reduced, so much less to keep track of).

It is interesting to see the mounting number of obstacles that the characters are coming up against. And it, is adding layers of complexity to a story line that would otherwise come across as very simple. This is a premise that I am really enjoying, and imagine would work really well as a movie series if it was...more R-rated. With no serious risks to the DARE winners, its slightly harder to take it all seriously. But there are many other aspects and complexity that make up for this and provide a compelling story to follow.

Being provided the signs, and listening to how they are deciphered is a fun way to encourage lateral thinking on the viewers behalf, and encourages problem solving in creative ways. I look forward to seeing how this all ends.
