Eden by David Holley Review

Eden

Book One

By David Holley

★★★★★

After their plane goes down a group of survivors find themselves stranded in a remote area of New Zealand. Through the eyes of the survivors we are shown a world that has been drastically changed after the United States was wiped off the face of the Earth because of a natural disaster that is still sending shockwaves throughout the rest of the world. Eden is the beginning of the end in the year 2022.

Eden (Book 1) 

There is no way to do this novel justice with a brief synopsis, first you have several unique characters each with their own story to tell, and then the story itself is multi-faceted with twists and turns that will leave you dying of anticipation of what will come next. This book is futuristic, with a touch of paranormal, and a dash of murder/mystery, and tons of action and adventure making certain to have something for everyone. What is great about this novel is though this book has so much going on the author manages to incorporate each action and reaction seamlessly into a cohesive and fascinating novel. This is certainly the beginning of the end and I cannot wait to find out what happens next.

Living With Ogres By Mitt Ray Review

Living With Ogres

Living With Ogres Book One

By Mitt Ray

★★★★

Matt has been a slave to the Ogres for the past seven years, even though his life is really hard it is what he is used to. So when his best friend Donna decides she is going to run away Matt does everything he can to stop her. Soon after Donna disappears a buzzard shows up to rescue Matt and since he has nothing left he decides to give it a try.

 Living With Ogres (Living With Ogres, #1)

This was an interesting book, though I am having a hard time trying to figure out who the story is directed at. It seems too short to be a middle grade book which makes you think a children’s book, but there is talk of torture and Matt is stabbed so I think it’s a bit old for a children’s book. I would definitely read through this before you hand it over to your kids for consumption. Luckily it is not very long so a quick read through will tell you everything you need to know. I did enjoy the story, it is full of magical creatures and overcoming life’s obstacles. Be forewarned though the author leaves off with a major cliffhanger, so hopefully the next book will be released soon!
