"The year is 2033 and the world hovers on the edge of explosion as unexplained crop deaths lead to severe global food shortages. In the United States, the Sickness is taking lives slowly, creeping its way into every family. Fi Kelly has already faced the Sickness in her own family, toughening her beyond her years. But a shocking confession from her dying father will push her toughness to its absolute limits. Saddled with an impossible secret and the mission of saving her little sister, Fi sets out to transform herself into the warrior that she must become to survive the coming collapse. Along the way, she will discover that evil can be accidental and that love can be intentional."

One word. WOW! Amazing and indescribable, Eden's Root is the perfect match for me!

Why? Well for one the main character Fi. This character is groomed from the very beginning with dark secrets. She fashions herself with learning the arts like hunting, fighting, and skills in survival. I like that Fi was just a normal girl about to go through something big. She is prepared for it and comes out totally rocking at being a fighter. She does not only fight for herself, but for her family as well. There are part s where everything she is taught is so explosive you can;t help but yell," You Go Girl!" and giggle with excitement.

The plot line of this book scares me. Because I have only read a few articles with theories on this, its just scary that this can really happen. With statistics rising in many diseases, I can't help but wonder if it is something that we are consuming that is making us ill. So many foods have been altered and testing on. This is why I stay clear away from fast food and would much rather cook my own meal. *Shudders* In any case, this plot line is an issue that has been raised time and again, yet no one listens.

The love interest in it is sweet and wonderful. I like that Fi finds someone who is just like her in many ways. There is no love triangle, (Thank GOD) but just a young girl fighting for survival and finding her match. I like how these two find each other. They certainly have a story to tell! If anything, the love interest endures so much the reader knows it's real love.

Eden's Root is a mind blowing story. Explosive from start to finish, the grooming and growth of Fi will rock your world. I don't think I ever read anything like this before. Eden's Root is epic masterpiece that will never grow old.  Brilliant and stunning, Eden's Root rocks!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. OMg yes it is scary and this would be something I'd really like too! Fabulous review, chicky I'll add this to my ever growing list >.<

  2. Eeek! Creepy. I don't know if this is for me, but the concept sounds good. What is Fi short for? Fiona?

  3. Yes, this is totally scary. That is why I don't like it when the irradiated food isn't labeled all the time. And plus, what does it do when that pollen from an altered seed mixes with food that isn't altered. O.o I do like the sound of Fi, but yea... totally scary!

  4. A book with a time frame in the future. Sounds like it's going to be a sad sad story!

  5. OoOo this sounds really really good. I'll be adding this one to my list. Great review!!!
