I’ve been wanting to get into the Eden Trilogy for some time. The storyline sounds great and it’s something I’ve wanted to check out. While I haven’t started the trilogy just yet, I thought I was a good idea to throw one of the short stories into my reading pile.
I was pleased to read The Raid, as I feel that it was made me want to read the full novels even more. This story is fairly short, but it does a good job a giving the reader a glimpse into the world of this series.
There are a few characters established, and through that the reader can get a feel for what’s happening now that the world has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland for humans. There’s a new threat in the world, and without mentioning what it is, I thought it was a great mixture of the horror and sci-fi genres.
I’ll be bumping the Eden Trilogy up on my reading list after reading The Raid.
