The betrayal that tore a family apart. Two brothers bent on destroying the other. A whole world on the brink of war.
Aiden has been through his second battle in the magical world of Eden. The victory is short lived and Aiden is sent racing toward his friends in the Capital. After being back in Eden with the Riders, he is eager to reunite with Wolf, Elisa and Logan, although he doesn’t realize just what he’s returning to. Surprises await him when he arrives in the Capital; his close-knit group of friends is slowly falling apart. On top of it all, another battle is just around the corner, one that will change everything.

Rain has made her choice, and now she is in some unknown fortress with the feared sorcerer, Aziz. She wants nothing more but to please him, but being his Queen isn’t as easy as she thought. While trying to learn sorcery, and dealing with Aziz’s advances, Rain is finding her new life a bit overwhelming. Just when she thought it couldn’t get worse, she discovers a secret of Aziz’s, and it is nothing she could have expected.

Rose has supported Callum throughout their journey, but now that the final battle is just around the corner she is faced with a hard reality. Everything she has gained with him could be taken away. Is she willing to live the rest of her life without him? Can she just stand by while he destroys everything, including himself? Will he ever be able to find peace? Will she?

In the third installment of the Eden Series fates will be decided, and the battle between brothers that has been a decade in the making will finally come to an end. Only one of them can be High King.

The battle starts now.

My Thoughts

If you have never heard of this series than you absolutely NEED to get your hands on a copy of the first book! You will not be disappointed! Janelle is a wonderful writer and I love both of her published series so far:-)

This is the third book in the Eden series and the story just keeps getting better and better. This series is one that while reading each installment, Janelle takes you back to this unique world that she has created. After finishing, you can’t get this world out of your head and you continue to think about the characters and wonder what could possibly happen next! This is exactly why I love reading and what makes a book GREAT!!

A lot happens in this book and I was filled with all different kind of emotions while reading! I laughed, cried and definitely swooned!

I honestly am able to finish these books in one sitting since I can’t seem to PUT THEM DOWN once I start. All of my attention gets captured into the storyline and my poor family suffers for it!

My favorite character is Wolf. Of course it has to be because he is definitely a bad boy of sorts and makes my heart sway on many different levels.

I enjoy the way Janelle’s writing allows us a glimpse at different POV’s. We get the whole picture of what is happening all around the kingdom and are able to sympathize with many characters. Of course, we all have our favorites, but, we get a sense of the reasons behind everyone’s actions and the story does not seem one-sided.

I can’t wait to get the last and final installment to this series, Eden-East. It is due to be released in September, 2013. I must also add that the cover to Eden-East is my favorite out of the whole series;-)
