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 parallel world to earth. When Sarajane is taken to
Saskia, she could never have imagined the reality of the world that she
is stepping 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 her journey, Sarajane discovers her magical
abilities, and realizes too that they come with a price. Sarajane is
truly tested as her own loved ones are put at risk- the ultimate
question she is forced to ask herself is, how do you choose who lives
and who dies?
Eden Forest by Aoife Marie Sheridan
My Rating: 3 Stars
How would you accept going from a middleclass twenty-one-year-old on Earth to a Princess on a far distant place called Saskia? Sarajane discovers the impossible; not only is she a princess from an alien planet, she is all that stands between life and death for those she loves. Is she ready to be decisive and use her “abilities” to conquer evil? Will the magic she has learned to manipulate give her the edge she needs? Will the strong and powerful Tristan stand by her side? There is a special “magic” between them, will it ever come to more?
Eden Forest by Aoife Marie Sheridan is more than words on paper, be prepared to be transported to another world and feel like you are there. Colorfully vivid in her scene details, Ms. Sheridan paints a wonderful picture that comes alive. Sarajane is strong, brave and very accepting of the turn her life has taken. The evil Queen is definitely evil, almost hiss worthy, but other characters needed to be fleshed out just a little more for me. Perhaps now that her world is so magically staged, and the action is ramping up, Ms. Sheridan will use book two to delve further into building more depth in her characters, because as fascinating as they appear, their potential to be even more is limitless!
