It finally looks like spring, in that it’s gray and raining, and so I could use a little touch of Eden. Then again, I have a sinking feeling that it probably won’t turn out exactly like it sounds. I’m guessing trouble ahead. Luckily, that’s the characters’ problem, right?
EDEN (Eden Saga) by Dean Crawford. Amazon for $1.99. If the world fell apart overnight, what would you do to protect your family? When a horrific natural disaster causes the collapse of civilisation and strands Cody Ryan deep inside the Arctic Circle, he is forced to embark upon an impossible journey. Thousands of miles from home in a brutal new world where only the strongest will survive, Cody and his companions must conquer seemingly insurmountable odds in a search for their loved ones, the limits of their own humanity and the rumoured last refuge of mankind… Eden.
