Guardian of Eden
on May 20, 2011
This book reads like a Young Adult novel but the content is not suitable for that age group. The synopsis of the novel really intrigued me, I was ready for a dark, intense read. However, I found it to be fairly light and overly romanticized. I also felt like things were over-explained, I was not left to connect dots or pick up tension and innuendo, it was always right there in the text. I got bored of the Garrett and Maddie love story and found the issues caused by it predictable.
I will say that the novel picks up towards the end, but it wasn't enough for me to deem this worthy of more than 3 stars. I loved the ideas, I just wish they were executed a bit better
