Sleeper is the sequel to Eric Walter’s coming of age novel, Between Heaven and Earth. Sleeper is one of the seven sequels to Seven, The Series. Read the seven books in any order you like and join a different grandson in each of the stories. In this book follow DJ and his cousins as they chase the mysteries of their grandfather’s past and join them in uncovering the truth. DJ, who is very proud of being seen as a younger version of his grandfather, hence the name David Junior, is shocked when he finds fake passports, bundles of cash in foreign currencies, and a gun in a secret compartment in his grandfather’s cottage. DJ finds himself thousands of kilometres away, racing a vintage E-Type Jag around London, England! And then there’s Charlie, the gorgeous granddaughter of DJ’s climbing partner, from the book Between Heaven and Earth, who joins DJ as his tour guide, but she gets swept into all of DJ’s missions as well. With double and triple agents, spies, guns, M16 agents, and traitors around every corner, can DJ discover the truth about his favourite person? Spy or a traitor? Who was David McLean really?
Sleeper is a phenomenal book by Eric Walters, and it is one that you will thoroughly enjoy. Although you can read the seven sequels in any order you choose, I recommend reading Sleeper first, as it provides the most background information and starts with the scene at the cottage. This thrilling book is filled with suspense, action and excitement. Join DJ, Carlie, and the double agents seeking up behind them, as they enter the thrilling world of British espionage. -Ananya M.
