She’s stronger, she’s faster, and she’s on a mission to find out why. As Lex sets out to discover who she is and where she really came from, she comes face-to-face with Egil, a killer who has been tracking Lex her entire life. At the helm of an enormous operation to eradicate all of Lex’s kind, Egil captures Lex’s long-lost mother, forcing Lex to confront him head on and save those she loves from certain death.
Author James S.A. Corey (Leviathan Wakes, Syfy's The Expanse) states, "Reading Seven to Die was like getting to dive back into all my favorite urban fantasies again.  Lex is a great new heroine at the beginning of a brilliant adventure, and T. G. Roberts is a writer to watch for."

According to one reader, "it's great to read a story that features so many ethnically diverse characters in leading roles. It was refreshing to have characters with "superpowers", all with conflicting agendas, from a variety of backgrounds."
