The League of Seven is the first book in an action-packed, steampunk series by the acclaimed author of Samurai Shortstop, Alan Gratz.

In an alternate 1875 America electricity is forbidden, Native Americans and Yankees are united, and eldritch evil lurks in the shadows. Young Archie Dent knows there really are monsters in the world. His parents are members of the Septemberist Society, whose job it is to protect humanity from hideous giants called the Mangleborn. Trapped in underground prisons for a thousand years, the giant monsters have been all but forgotten—but now they are rising again as the steam-driven America of 1875 rediscovers electricity, the lifeblood of the Mangleborn. When his parents and the rest of the Septemberists are brainwashed by one of the evil creatures, Archie must assemble a team of seven young heroes to save the world.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 09, 2014 – Archie Dent's parents, who are researchers for the secretive Septemberist Society in a steampunk 1875 America, have just discovered that one of the monstrous immortal Mangleborn, imprisoned centuries earlier, is about to rise again. Legends say that seven heroes will emerge to defeat the monsters, so 12-year-old Archie isn't worried until a Mangleborn called the Swarm Queen takes control of his parents' brains. To save them, Archie teams up with Hachi, a Seminole girl with excellent fighting skills and a dark past, and Fergus, a young inventor scarred by his experiments with electricity. The formation of the League requires a strong ensemble cast, and Gratz (Prisoner B-3087) delivers admirably in this first installment in a planned trilogy, even with only three of its members yet introduced. An enticing alternate history presents an America in which Native tribes have as much power and presence as Yankees, with politics of their own to navigate. Gratz has created an imaginative world with appeal far beyond its immediate middle-grade market. Art not seen by PW. Ages 10 14. Author's agent: Barry Goldblatt, Barry Goldblatt Literary.
