Author: Garth Nix

The Seventh Tower series is made up of six books that follow two children who live in a world left in complete darkness after its sun is blocked by a magical Veil. We've got the low-down on the complete series.

The Fall

The Fall tells the story of a boy named Tal who lives in a seven-towered castle in a world without sunlight. Tal attempts to steal a sunstone in order to secure his family's position among the "Chosen". When he is caught, he is banished from the mountaintop castle and thrown into a new, unknown world where danger is around every corner!
The Fall Rating:3

Castle

Tal and his new Icecarl friend, Milla, make it from the Dark World to the Castle, but aren't welcomed with open arms. While the Castle seems peaceful, the two discover conspiracies and danger at every turn. This book picks up quickly from where The Fall left off and starts amping up the suspense that will carry you through the rest of the series.
Castle Rating:4


Aenir

Tal and Milla fight their way to the dream-world of Aenir, which turns out to be more of a nightmare than anticipated. Once there, they'll have to find the Codex, which will allow them to leave the Aenir! There are some serious nail-biting moments in Aenir that will have you chomping at the bit for the next book!
Aenir Rating:4


Above the Veil

Tal and Milla search for the truth about their world, which leads them to meet Crow and his band of Underfolk rebels, who have discovered many secrets about the Castle. If they all work together, they'll find out even more! This book really starts building up towards the final story but, on its own, leaves you wanting a little more.
Above the Veil Rating:3


Into Battle

The Icecarls are preparing to attack the Chosen's Castle to protect the Veil, while a new enemy starts to emerge. A war is beginning and Milla and Tal each have their own battles to fight in it! You won't be disappointed in this epic final novel!
Into Battle Rating:3


The Violet Keystone

In the sixth and final book of The Seventh Tower series, Tal and Milla rally their allies to save their world from evil. But every final book needs a showdown with a big boss - and The Violet Keystone delivers with the mighty dragon Sharrakor! You'll have to read it for yourself to find out what happens.

The Violet Keystone Rating:5


The Bottom Line

The Seventh Tower is an action-packed fantasy series that will appeal to your love of danger and drama. There are tons of twists and turns in the series that will keep you on your toes (and keep you reading until the sixth book!). If you're a fantasy fan, The Seventh Tower is well worth checking out!

    I'm not saying humans should be tested on. There are alternatives where humans and animals are both not tested on such as "Organs on chips" which basically mimics the structure and function of human cells and tissues and they have been proved to replicate human medical responses more accurately than animal experiments do. There's also another alternative which is cell and tissue models that are used to access the safety of medicines as they replicate key traits of normal human skin. Besides not all animals react the same way as humans depending on different medicine types. There's various alternatives being used now that don't harm animals in anyway. I believe humans and animals are equal in fact we all come from the same kingdom so why should they be treated any different?

    Woah, okay so, years ago when I was 12,13 maybe, I started this story and remembering it and finding it on here (with a different account,of course) is amazing, so if anyone wants too, I can maybe restart it? Or I can rewrite it, either way just say if you want me too!!!

    Uniforms - other kids can't see your taste in fashion and you don't stand out by what you wear, AND they can't judge you if you're different. With uniforms, people are being judged on their personalities, not the brands that they wear.
