Review: Eden

2¢ Worth: Eden doesn't race to it's destination but that doesn't keep it from being compelling. I hungrily devoured this tale of surviving a futuristic world where robotic limbs and artificial organs evolved into an infection that (with one touch) turns mortals into robotic drones intent on spreading their virus. At it's core, Eden is about a young woman trying to learn what it means to love and be human. 4 stars

Whisper: Eden's message seems to be that is our actions that really determine what we are made of and who we are.

Wire tip: Eden is available in paperback but the real deal is in the eBook. Plus, for a limited time, the eBook is only 0.99¢ at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Whippersnappers: Mostly clean with only a few minor mentions to nudity and some descriptive hunting.

Word to the wise: I would recommend Eden by Keary Taylor to fans of The Host.

  1. I still haven't read The Host. I know I need to get with it. Maybe then I'll be ready for Eden. It sounds so different from anything that I am accustomed to (which is a great thing).
