Nothing good grows in the shadow of secrets.
A reluctant warrior in a rebellion he abhors, Reese Theron has buckled beneath blackmail to keep the circumstances of his birth on lockdown. He’s lost everything that counts—the right to fight for his king, the trust of his best friend, and any hope for a family of his own. Death seems preferable, until Galena Shantos meets him at his fateful crossroads and saves his life.
Galena’s loyalty to her brother, the king, is absolute. Healing his warriors on the sidelines of war, she’s witnessed too many rebellion atrocities to be swayed for mercy. Yet something about Reese blurs the lines of allegiance, the call to her heart raw and primitive.
When Reese ends up a prisoner of war, he’s visited by a mysterious being of another race and learns he’s the linchpin in a battle between good and evil. The lovers will face choices—Galena between family loyalty and championing Reese’s cause, and Reese between keeping his shameful secret, and saving all races by leading the darkest of his kind to redemption—starting with his own confession.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘HEALING EDEN (Eden Series book #2)’:
***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novel of the Eden Series.***
‘Healing Eden’ is the second novel of the Eden Series and continues to blossom into an intricate and enchanting story-line. This novel falls into the Paranormal and Fantasy genres and delivers more than just those aspects. This novel has been written in the multiple character P.O.V.’s(point of views) from Reese Theron, Galena Shantos, Eryx Shantos, and Maxis Steysis.
Reese Theron once trained and fought alongside the Myren kind, to protect and serve under the king/Malran but then he found himself fighting alongside the Lomos rebels. He was now viewed as a traitor and a defector. Very few know his true background and who his brother is. When he comes across a beautiful woman that he remembers from before he turned his back on the Myrens, Galena, he feels a pull toward her that he can’t explain. Will he ever get the chance to be with her or is his betrayal going to be his doom?
Galena Shantos tried to heal as many as she could on the night of the battle between the Myren and the rebels, but so many have died. She had no idea that someone else was watching her until he came out of hiding. When the man watching her gets attacked, for some strange reason she feels the urge to protect and heal this man named Reese. The only problem is that he is a fighter from the enemy side. Galena finds herself torn between loyalty to her family and loyalty to the feelings that her heart won’t allow her to deny.
Maxis Steysis will do whatever it takes to destroy the Myrens, bring down their king Eryx, and rule with his Lomos rebellion set on enslaving humans. He has a connection with Reese Theron as he had with the Phybe, and Maxis hopes to use it to kill his stratego Reese but he’s been captured by his enemy. Will Maxis bring down the Myren kind? What will Reese do and who will he show his personal loyalty to? Will Galena effect his views or will he always remain tied to Maxis after betraying Ramsey and the Myren?
Will Eryx, the leader(malran) of the Myren, help find Lexi’s(his malress) imprisoned human friend Ian before it’s too late? And what questions will arise and be answered involving many of the characters tied to their world? From chapter to chapter, the intriguing story-line will draw you in with its entertaining display of of exciting and sexy twist-and-turns into the world of the Myrens and those out to either destroy them or love them. I do recommend this enjoyable novel and definitely this incredible series. It is worth checking out and adding it to your TBR list! 🙂

MY BLOGGING READER’S STAR RATING: ‘HEALING EDEN’ 4 out of 5 stars:
How I imagined the characters while reading ‘HEALING EDEN’:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘HEALING EDEN’★★★
Reese to Galena: He’d never dreamed he’d get this close to her. Not even when he’d visited the castle with Ramsay all those years ago. “I used to watch you.” Probably not his wisest confession. “I didn’t come to the castle often, but when I did I’d watch for you. You were barely past your awakening. I thought you were perfect.”
Reese’s words: “My choices were wrong. I knew it the day I blocked Ramsay. I knew it watching rebellion men die for a cause I wanted nothing to do with. I’ll pay the price. Willingly. All I want is a chance to make things right before I do.”
Clio and Eryx about Ramsay: “Remember Ramsay,” Clio said. “Not all battles are fought with weapons. The heart is a valiant weapon for those brave enough to wield it.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?” Eryx said.
Clio kept her gaze on Ramsay. “When the time is right, he’ll understand.”
