In the newest book of Jenny Cote’s “Epic Order of the Seven” series, the team must split up for their next mission: the birth of a new nation. Liz must help young Patrick Henry find his true purpose in life–to become the Voice of the Revolution. She begins her quest when he is a seven year-old boy who cares more about fishing and exploring the forest in Virginia than about school. Her task will take time, as Patrick Henry will fail at everything he tries. Liz eventually leads Patrick to take up law, and finally accomplishes her mission when he finds his powerful voice in a courtroom. Little does Patrick Henry or the colony of Virginia know that his voice will set the ball of the American Revolution in motion. “Liberty or death!” becomes the battle cry to unite thirteen solitary colonies as one nation under God to fight the mighty British lion.
Meanwhile, Max must see to the protection of young George Washington, who inadvertently starts the French and Indian War. The enemy will mount continual assaults on Washington, from enemy snipers to treasonous members of his military staff. If he is lost, all is lost. Nigel goes on a high-flying kite assignment with Benjamin Franklin to ensure the success of an experiment that will impact the outcome of the war in ways no one could imagine. Al remains in London to live in the royal palace, gathering intelligence right under the nose of King George III. The simple-minded cat will be responsible for delivering some Common Sense to America. Kate is assigned to the richest orphan in France, the young Marquis de Lafayette, who is crucial to the entire quest for Independence. If he doesn’t make it to America, the Declaration of Independence will lead not to liberty, but to death for America. (Paperback, 672 pages)
