Most 7th Son fans have waited years to purchase a print copy of 7th Son: Descent ... and many have told J.C they plan to purchase additional copies for friends and family. To show his appreciation, J.C. has unleashed the Beta Clone Army REWARDS PROGRAM.

This exclusive program, which will run from October to January 1, 2010, is the only way you can obtain these exclusive rewards during this time. Folks (and their friends) can team up to bring supersales and ensure 7th Son: Descent's success ... and secure the rest of the 7th Son trilogy in print.

One superfan, John Merlin, wrangled 9 friends to purchase 100 copies! Making good on his Rewards Program promise, J.C. will fly to England to personally thank and hang with John. He'll fly to YOUR locale if you do the same!
