Six Star Review: EDEN-SOUTH by Janelle Stalder

**If you aren't caught up in the Eden series yet, you may want to avoid spoilers of previous books & check out my reviews for Book 1, Eden and Book 2, Eden-West instead**

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:
**Huge fan girl squeal**  Sweet book fairies do I LOVE this book!!!  **happy dance**  It's just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!  **Much jumping up and down hugging Kindle**  Just take everything you love about the first two Eden books and amplify it by 1,000 .... it's THAT good!!!!!

So much happens in this book, so much growth, so much craziness and some great conclusions to some big fat issues that will make you super duper happy!!!!  But then there's even more darkness and danger and suspense that'll make you cringe and clutch your pillow!  There's a new character in the mix and we also get to know more about Aziz.  Then there's some hints about a few new things to know about Aiden, but we'll just have to wait to see that play out in the series conclusion, Eden-East (I get chill bumps just reading the blurb for that baby)!

As always, Janelle Stalder's writing continues to amaze me.  The Eden series is all about dynamic characters and intense action.  As an aspiring author, I can only hope to write characters as wildly dimensional as Janelle Stalder's!  I'll be twitching in my seat for the September release of the series conclusion!!!  **happy sigh**
