Book Summary
The betrayal that tore a family apart. Two brothers bent on destroying the other. A whole world on the brink of war.

Aiden has been through his second battle in the magical world of Eden. The victory is short lived and Aiden is sent racing toward his friends in the Capital. After being back in Eden with the Riders, he is eager to reunite with Wolf, Elisa and Logan, although he doesn’t realize just what he’s returning to. Surprises await him when he arrives in the Capital; his close-knit group of friends is slowly falling apart. On top of it all, another battle is just around the corner, one that will change everything.

Rain has made her choice, and now she is in some unknown fortress with the feared sorcerer, Aziz. She wants nothing more but to please him, but being his Queen isn’t as easy as she thought. While trying to learn sorcery, and dealing with Aziz’s advances, Rain is finding her new life a bit overwhelming. Just when she thought it couldn’t get worse, she discovers a secret of Aziz’s, and it is nothing she could have expected.

Rose has supported Callum throughout their journey, but now that the final battle is just around the corner she is faced with a hard reality. Everything she has gained with him could be taken away. Is she willing to live the rest of her life without him? Can she just stand by while he destroys everything, including himself? Will he ever be able to find peace? Will she?

In the third installment of the Eden Series fates will be decided, and the battle between brothers that has been a decade in the making will finally come to an end. Only one of them can be High King.

The battle starts now.
My Review
I have a few favorite authors. Ones that I trust will deliver time and time again. This is one of them. This story although grounded in YA, has a cast of characters from all age ranges to satisfy all taste yet still remain reader friendly to the younger folk.
Is there heat in this series? Yes, a bit where appropriate and not anything over the top or that you don’t see on national tv commercials. No, censorship require here.
It’s not often that you want more than to enjoy a book but to crawl in the page and experience it. This is it. The world building is fantastic. The cast is amazing. I’m surely in love with each of the guys in the book. And no, there aren’t love triangles. Not really. This is just a full body cast. I haven’t met many authors who could write so many characters and you don’t feel cheated that you didn’t get enough of your favorite.
Not to give anything away, but we are introduced to a new cast member who I have already fallen in love with. (Yes, I’m a book boyfriend slut and proud of it, lol)
The writing is phenomenal and spectacular world building and cast. You won’t be disappointed by this one. Those that love Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, and Divergent will surely enjoy this series.
 My book boyfriend is Wolf.
