The BookViral Review:

Compelling reading, underpinned by a clever and sophisticated plot, The Seventh Seal is the new release from A J Dobbs that confidently blends the vital elements of traditional fantasy with the farsightedness of science fact. A highly original and absorbing read, Dobbs brings a refreshingly new literary voice to an ever growing genre. His prose are sharp and he has an exacting eye for detail which adds a prevailing sense of authenticity to his fantasy world settings whilst ably managing to sidestep simplistic tropes where black and white prevails. There’s real momentum here that not only entertains, but adds much by way of social commentary which proves quite thought provoking and encourages the reader to ask ‘what if.’   Characters are imbued with a timely sense of presence and emotional gravitas, which adds significantly to the plausibility of his plot whilst the weaving of real life historical figures into the fabric of his narrative adds a magical perspective that is wholly beguiling.

By any stretch of the imagination, The Seventh Seal proves a superb debut and certainly deserves a prime place on your bookshelf. Boding well for future releases from A J Dobbs it is highly recommended.
