*** 3.5 Stars ***

Some slow, long, and boring weeks it’s a blast to read a riptide of an adventure novel. This is the first book in the Eden series I have read, but it was fairly easy to follow along in the storyline. I read up a bit on character backgrounds and the blurbs of the first three books to get a bit of an idea, but really this book can be read alone. The book could appeal to a mature YA audience or adult. I agree with other readers that the book could work for either male or female readers. There is more an emphasis on the overall storyline rather than just focusing on specific genre, such as romance.

Army Chaplain Jaime is a strong female lead and is supported by her husband, Yani, and rockstar Mark. Someone sinister is releasing plagues such as those rained on Egypt in the far past. Hopping around the world and to one crazy and explosive mystery to the next, everyone races to try and stop the nefarious wiles of a madman that might just start the next great world war.

Fast moving adventure, mystery, and out of world possibilities keeps the book entertaining and open to a wide audience in how to interpret the story.


Sharon Linnea is the author of the new mystery These Violent Delights as well as the four Eden thrillers, Chasing Eden, Beyond Eden, Treasure of Ede and the new Plagues of Eden. She has also written award-winning biographies of Raoul Wallenberg and Hawaii’s Princess Kaiulani. She lives outside New York City with her family.

B.K. Sherer holds a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary and a Doctorate of Education from Oklahoma State University. A Presbyterian minister, she serves on active duty as a chaplain in the US Army, currently stationed at West Point. The authors first collaborated on a play about the French Underground for their sixth grade talent show in Springfield, Missouri, and have been friends ever since.
