Review:

I received a free audio version of this book for an honest review.

Plagues of Eden is the fourth book in the Eden Thrillers series. I read the first book, Chasing Eden, and enjoyed it but I’m not sure how I missed the next two books in the series. Although I did like this book, I would have enjoyed it more if I’d read #2 and #3 first.

This book has nonstop action and suspense but I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more Biblical history. Where the first book had more than enough Biblical history, this one only mentions the plagues God brought upon Egypt because of the madman who is duplicating them.

Because this is the fourth book in a series, there wasn’t a lot of character development. I think if I hadn’t read the first book, I may have been a bit lost. I did learn more about Yani. To me he was larger than life in Chasing Eden but knowing more about his past makes him just as human as everyone else.

I think you’ll like Plagues of Eden if you like suspense but I would definitely recommend reading the first 3 books before this one.
