Review: Eden-East by Janelle Stalder


New life, new deaths, and truths revealed. Everything ends now.

In the final installment of the Eden series, the King’s army prepares for their biggest battle yet. Aiden and his friends set out to find Aziz in his hidden mountain fortress and bring the war in Eden to an end. But secrets are being discovered along the way, and the weight of them could ruin lives. Aiden is coping with loss and the need for vengeance, as well as changes in himself he doesn’t quite understand. Thousands of lives are depending on him to stop Aziz once and for all, and this time Aiden is more than ready and confident he’ll be the one to do it. The stakes are higher than he ever anticipated on his journey east.

Elisa is embarking on a new phase of her life. She has the man she loves beside her, their group of friends have become stronger, and the end of war is in sight. Now she just needs to see it through so she can finally have her happily ever after. But she knows the truth that the others don’t, and it will test her loyalty and friendship more than anything ever has.

My Review:
I'm in mourning.  I've never been so sad to see a series come to an end.  This may be the most incredible epic fantasy series of all time -- seriously, I'm not just being dramatic -- and it's over.  I finished it a few weeks ago and have been trying to process my feelings.  This book is incredible!!!  It's the perfect culmination of the three amazing books prior.  But now it's over ... I just can't seem to wrap my head around that.

So what can I say as a reviewer?  Well, if you're reading this, you've likely read books 1-3 and don't need me to rehash how incredibly well written the characters are, how the complex cast each has back story and depth and draw you in and make you love and/or hate them.  You don't need me to tell you that the overall plot, as well as the individual books' plots, are intriguing to the point that your children may not eat for days as you are too busy reading.  So all I can say is that the conclusion of all this freakastically amazing adventure that is EDEN-EAST does not disappoint.  It's great ... but I still can't believe its over.
