Annotation

Tal has lived his whole life in darkness. He has never left his home, a mysterious castle of seven towers. He does not see the threat that will tear apart his family and his world.

But Tal cannot stay safe forever. When danger strikes, he must desperately climb the Red Tower to steal a Sunstone. He reaches the top . . .

. . . and then he falls into a strange and unknown world of warriors, iceships, and hidden magic. There Tal makes an enemy who will save his life — and holds the key to his future.

Publisher Description

Welcome to The Seventh Tower, a mountaintop fortress where light is the ultimately commodity and isolation from the outside world is complete. Tal lives among the Chosen people, but his position is far from secure. In a desperate attempt to save his family's name, he tries to steal a precious sunstone. He fails...and falls from the Castle — straight into the unknown.

Milla, an Icecarl maiden, finds Tal in the wilderness. They are complete opposites. He was born in the cultured world of the castle; she in the stark world beyond the walls. Together, they must unravel the secrets of The Seventh Tower and fight to survive.

Review
Scholastic will feel the force once again. The New York-based kids pubco has inked a deal to publish a new title for Lucasfilm imprint LucasBooks. The only book to come out of the deal-according to Scholastic PR, the two companies haven't discussed collaborating on additional titles-called The Seventh Tower (L)S$4.99), is scheduled to hit stores in June in paperback. Penned by Australian author Garth Nix, The Seventh Tower is a fantasy series targeted to readers in the eight to 12 range. Scholastic will release the second book in the series in September, to be followed by two quarterly releases. Starting in April, Scholastic will kick off its marketing campaign in support of the series, which includes a national print ad campaign, a Seventh Tower Web site, and a Seventh Tower kids hotline. Also in April, Scholastic will distribute one million Seventh Tower teaser booklets to kids in the U.S. through its network of school book clubs. The deal marks the second time in the last year Scholastic and Lucas have worked together. Last year, Scholastic published a range of titles based on Lucas's Star Wars prequel The Phantom Menace. SA
