* ReCut: The print edition, free PDF and remastered podcast of ''Descent'' is significantly different to the original podcast. For example, "Jonathan" was renamed "Jay" to avoid confusion, and one character's villainous reveal occurs an entire book earlier. It also includes a MythologyGag of having [[spoiler: Father Thomas and John switching rolls later in the novel]]. John even says he was thinking about doing it before his brother volunteered.

The so-called Beta Clones have been assembled because the prime suspect in the President's assassination is the man they were cloned from, John Alpha. Once believed to have committed suicide, John Alpha is now running free in the world, capable of reproducing 7th Son's advanced cloning and memory manipulation technology and with an endgame no one can predict--except, possibly, the Betas.

'''''7th Son''''' is a trilogy of science fiction techno-thriller novels written by J.C. Hutchins. They are, in order: ''Book One: Descent'', ''Book Two: Deceit'' and ''Book Three: Destruction''.

In 2008, Hutchins oversaw ''7th Son: Obsidian'', an anthology of short stories set in the ''7th Son'' universe and written by other noteworthy podiobook authors. In 2009, ''Descent'' was picked up for publication by St. Martin's Press and released in late October. A short anthology of prequel stories entitled ''7th Son: 7 Days'' was released in October, preceding the release of the ''Descent'' print edition.
