Sarajane Anderson is your regular twenty one year old. With family, friends and a normal job. She also happens to be the only person who can save Saskia, a world parallel to earth.
When Sarajane is taken to Saskia, she could never have imagined the reality of the world she steps into, a world where magical abilities are in everyone’s possession.
She must face a father she never knew, a world that is beyond her belief. A guardian who captures her heart, and a darkness that wants to take it.
On this journey Sarajane discovers her magical abilities and realizes they come with a price. Sarajane is truly tested, as her loved ones are put at risk. The question she must ask herself is, how do you choose who lives and who dies?
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
Eden Forest is the first book in the Saskia trilogy. It is full of myth, magic, adventure, and love. I was hooked from the first chapter and didn’t want the story to end, so I’m glad there are 2 more books after this one.
The characters are interesting. Sarajane is the main character and most of the story is told from her perspective. She’s strong-willed and independent with a good heart. Most of the characters are good or evil with no in between but each one is unique and well described.
I really enjoyed Eden Forest. The only problem I had with it was the formatting. There were no paragraphs, words ran together, and there were spaces where they didn’t belong. It took me twice as long to read as it should have.
I highly recommend Eden Forest if you can get it with the correct formatting.
