Nothing good grows in the shadow of secrets.

A reluctant warrior in a rebellion he abhors, Reese Theron has buckled beneath blackmail to keep the circumstances of his birth on lockdown. He’s lost everything that counts—the right to fight for his king, the trust of his best friend, and any hope for a family of his own. Death seems preferable, until Galena Shantos meets him at his fateful crossroads and saves his life.

Galena’s loyalty to her brother, the king, is absolute. Healing his warriors on the sidelines of war, she’s witnessed too many rebellion atrocities to be swayed for mercy. Yet something about Reese blurs the lines of allegiance, the call to her heart raw and primitive.

When Reese ends up a prisoner of war, he’s visited by a mysterious being of another race and learns he’s the linchpin in a battle between good and evil. The lovers will face choices—Galena between family loyalty and championing Reese’s cause, and Reese between keeping his shameful secret, and saving all races by leading the darkest of his kind to redemption—starting with his own confession.

In the opening of this book 2 of the Eden series the author ties in some scenes from Unexpected Eden (Eden #1) from a different point of view. I was excited to see that the characters she picked for this book were the ones that intrigued me in book 1. 

The primary female is healer Galena, sister to Eryx and Ramsey. Her character is presented in a manner that is dynamic and unassuming. It is refreshing to see a female character become stronger throughout the story in a manner that retains her softness.

Reese, the primary male character is a character that is written in a complex way where there are lots of layers that the author slowly peels away. I enjoyed how we are slowly drawn through the story and shown that sometimes outward appearances aren't all there is to a story. 

This story is about making wrong choices, trying to correct them and loving someone so much that you want to help them save themselves. Visual descriptions are amazing throughout the book and the author has a beautiful way with words and emotions.

I can't wait till book 3. I hope it deals with either Ramsey or Ludan as the main male character. You'll need to read this series it's exciting and different is a great way.

I was gifted this ARC in exchange for an honest opinion via Netgalley.

~ My Reviews of the series ~

Rhenna Morgan writes for the same reason she reads—to escape reality.

Yes, her life rocks—two beautiful little girls, a great husband, a steady job, and the kind of friends that would take you out back if you hurt her. But, like most women, she’s got obligations stacked tight from dusk to dawn. So, when the world gets her down, she slips into something…less realistic.

Romance is a must. So is a steamy romp (or four). Nothing thrills her more than the fantasy of new, exciting worlds, strong, intuitive men, and the sigh of, “Oh if only that could happen to me.”

So, if you’re picking up one of her books, expect portals into alternate realms and men who’ll fight to keep the women they want. Romantic escape for the women who need it.

  1. Oh, Teri! Thank you so much for the lovely review! I'm thrilled you enjoyed it! And yes, Ramsay is up next in Waking Eden. Don't worry. Ludan's getting his story after that. :)

    1. I am so excited about that good news and look forward to their release.
