In the sequel to the award-winning, dystopian novel, Revealing Eden, Eden Newman must adapt into a hybrid human beast if she hopes to become Ronson Bramford’s mate. She has no choice but to undergo her father’s adaptation experiment at his makeshift laboratory in the last patch of rainforest. But when the past rears its ugly head, Eden and Bramford must abandon camp along with their family and friends. Luckily, an Aztec tribe that has survived with the aid of a healing plant provides them with sanctuary – or do they have a deeper motive? Too late, Eden realizes she is at the center of an epic spiritual battle between love and war. To survive, she must face her deepest fears or lose everything, including, Bradford, the beastly man she loves.
Acclaimed writer VICTORIA FOYT, brings to this compelling sequel the same page-turning suspense, wild adventure and romantic intrigue that captivated readers of Save the Pearls Part One.
This is not just an important sequel to Revealing Eden, Part one of Save the Pearls, but a very important and great read that teaches many lessons.
The most important message that we must take from this book, though there are many others (messages that is), is that if and when love dies humanity and the Planet will too as the god of war will then rule. At times we must wonder if this not already has happened in our world today.
The book is very fast moving and at times the reader will want to speed read in order to find out what happens next. That, however, I would advise against as, in doing so, important messages could be missed.
Victoria Foyt is an author and filmmaker. She currently lives in Santa Monica, California with her two children and a lot of books.
This is a very fitting sequel and I cannot wait for book three to come out so that I can read it too and find out what happens to Eden, Radford and the rest.
