Eden Forest Blog Tour and Giveaway

Eden Forest 
by Aoife Marie Sheridan
(Saskia Trilogy #1)
Publication date: September 28th 2012
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Sarajane Anderson is your regular twenty one year old. With family, friends and a normal job. She also happens to be the only person who can save Saskia, a world parallel to earth.

When Sarajane is taken to Saskia, she could never have imagined the reality of the world she steps into, a world where magical abilities are in everyone’s possession.

She must face a father she never knew, a world that is beyond her belief. A guardian who captures her heart, and a darkness that wants to take it.
On this journey Sarajane discovers her magical abilities and realizes they come with a price. Sarajane is truly tested, as her loved ones are put at risk. The question she must ask herself is, how do you choose who lives and who dies?


My Review: 

Eden Forest (Saskia Trilogy, #1)Eden Forest by Aoife Marie Sheridan

Strong and vivid world building and an intriguing premise highlight Eden Forest.

A world on the brink and ruled by evil envelopes Sarajane and her magical abilities. To save the ones she loves, Sarajane must embrace her destiny and make choices she never imagined making.

Queen Bellona is quite warped although in a dark and intriguing way. I did find that many of the characters seemed underdeveloped, hoping that in the continuation of this series, I will become invested as we get to know them better.

The world building was marvelous. Sheridan mentally created this imaginary land in my mind with her vivid descriptions.

Eden Forest is an exciting new concept and brilliantly developed world in this alluring young adult fantasy.

I received this copy of Eden Forest from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for a honest review.

Aoife Marie Sheridan has loved reading from a very young age, starting off with mills and boon’s books, given to by her grandmother her love for romances grew, by the age of 14 she had read hundreds of them.

Aoife had a passion for writing poetry or in her eyes her journal entries. It was something she did throughout her teens and into her twenties. Aoife won first place for two of her poems and had them published at a young age of just nineteen. Realising she needed to get a real job (What writing isn’t) she studied accountancy and qualified working in that field for many years, until her passion for reading returned and she found Maria V Snyder. Poison study one of her favourite books has been read and re-read countless times.

Aoife’s first book Eden Forest (Part one of the Saskia Trilogy) came to be after a dream of a man and woman on a black horse jumping through a wall of fire and the idea of Saskia was born. Now with her first novel published and taking first place for Eden Forest with Writers Got Talent 2013, Aoife continues to write tales of fantasy and is currently working on her third book for the Saskia Trilogy amongst other new works.
