This authors writing is incredible! As many have said before me, she pulls you right into the world in which Seth and his family reside in. The world building is top tier, as is the character development, which is what one would expect from the first novel in a series, and it was beautifully done. I felt a little overwhelmed by my own personal biases whilst reading this novel, which made it even more of an interesting story. The reader, I felt, is lucky enough to watch many different aspects unfold and to really connect to the characters that we meet along the way.
These Guardians of the Garden of Eve are certainly a species all their own, and I found it very interesting to discover more about them as the story goes on. Everyone seems to have their own internal struggles with determining what’s right/wrong, or if they would prosper by following their own hopes and dreams, rather than just going with the flow. I wasn’t sure what to expect as this was the first novel I’ve read by this author, but very much look forward to continuing this adventure with the next installment in this series. I was pleasantly surprised and recommend a read for sure!
