I am really excited to be today's stop on the EDEN-SOUTH tour. This whole series is a pack of amazing and I am a huge fan of it and Janelle's writing. And Janelle is general cause she is pretty amazing too.
Anyways, here is my review. Don't forget to scroll down for the giveaway.
REVIEWThis book is definitely the most amazing and addictive book of the year. Couldn't think Janelle was able to best the two previous books, but this one is by far my favorite.
In the third book of the EDEN series the story picks up exactly where it stopped on the second one, and I mean exactly, like at the same moment. Aiden is back with his friends, hooray to that and they are getting ready to face Callum's army in the South. In the meantime Rain is starting her new life with Aziz, the mad sorcerer.
This book had it all. Dozens of moments that just made me swoon and smile.
Hot, steamy scenes.
And of course there is the war.
There were also a few surprises in Aziz lair. One of them being Elex, who I adored. And then there is this whole history of Aziz and Aiden seems to be tied with him too. Now, that was awesome. There is also Rain. I am not ashamed to say I hated the girl in the previous book but now she is my second favorite female of the story, after Elisa. I understand her need to try and make her own destiny, not wanted to be shadowed by the men of her clan, her need for power and knowledge. She is pretty amazing after all. And I can see that she is realising that Aziz is crazy and dangerous and not who she thought her was. I can totally see her turning good in the end.
This book also focused a lot on Wolf and Elisa, my favorite couple. I am really glad that their romance finally blossomed. I loved them when they fought and I love them even more when they don't. Oh, Wolf, you are my favorite boy of the whole story!
But it wasn't just them. Everyone got a spotlight in this book and some things were resolved. The war between Jameson and Callum finally came to an end. And let me tell you it was the perfect end. I saw it coming but it still made very happy. Now if they can just kill Aziz I could die happy.
Oh, and that ending. OMG Janelle do you want me to stalk you down for more answers. Aziz's plans never seize to amaze me.
All in all, excellent book, with an amazing storyline and beautiful writing. The world of Eden has become one my favorites and I don't know how I could bare to read the last book, I don't want this journey to be over.
I think this girl says is all.
I was provided a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
