Eden Forest by Aoife Marie Sheridan
Saskia & Ireland
Sarajane Anderson is a normal 21-year-old with her family, friends and job. What she doesn’t know is that she is the only person that can save a parallel world to earth, the world of Saskia. She soon finds a world she could never imagine was real when she is taken there. She steps into a world that everyone possesses magical abilities. She also finds a father that she never knew existed. If that wasn’t bad enough she is in a world that is beyond her belief with a darkness that wants to take it and a guardian that captures her heart. As she journeys through this new world she discovers her own magical powers and finds that they come with a price. Sarajane is tested when those that she loves are put at risk. She is also forced to answer a question she never wanted asked the ultimate question of who lives and who dies.
This is a wonderful start to a trilogy that pulls the reader into another world. A world with some things that are things that are the same as this world but the majority of the world is different. A world that comes to life as the reader learns more and more about this different world. It has action, suspense and some romance that makes for a very good read and will leave readers wanting more. While the story at times changes characters and places the reader is never left wonder what is happening when because each change is done in a way that moves well from character to character. The world building is interesting and at the same time it doesn’t leave the reader wondering what is what. This is a fantasy book that any reader would enjoy.
I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
