Let me say that even though I loved the first book this one is even better. I don't know how Janelle Stalder does it but Eden-West was impossible to put down. All the characters we learned and loved in the first boook return to keep us on edge with every single action. I was especially looking forward to all the Elisa-Wolf scenes that this book has, these two know how to keep me interested, until the very end, litarally. I can't believe how this book ended. Also we get to meet new characters, like Moose, Wolf's brother, who I adored from the very first time and Lily one of the forest people, who for some weird reason I kept picturing like a ten year old and trust me you don't want to picture her like that or it will be awkward.
Even though this book is called Eden-West my favorite place of Eden was the South. I really enjoyed seeing it through Elisa's eyes. I came to love the world Janelle created in the first book and now I got to discover and see a bigger part of it. A part of it that makes me want to jump inside the book and actually spend the rest of my life there.
Everyone who loves a good epic fantasy book mixed with ya characters will love Eden. With twists and turns, tons of action, politacal intrigues and romance that leaves you begging for more, this is one of the best books of the year.
