The only hope for saving their race is to surrender their hearts.
With a long foretold and annoyingly vague prophecy warning of immense change for Eden, Ramsay Shantos is forced to hunt words and legends instead of rebels. For a man of action, it’s the worst kind of agony. Until he encounters a sexy librarian who bears the fated prophecy’s mark. A mark no human should possess.
Tortured by her mixed heritage, Trinity Blair has enjoyed little human touch in her life, let alone intimacy. Even the most innocent contact fills her mind with a person’s deepest, darkest secrets—except for Ramsay. Her immunity to his thoughts sparks a fragile hope that she might finally experience the passion of her Dark Spiritu brethren…unless he’s the dangerous crossroads her father predicted.
When knowledge of Eden goes viral in the human realm, Trinity is Ramsay’s only hope for quelling mass panic. Can he risk revealing the secrets of his race to the guileless ray of sunshine? Or is she the unknown source of Eden’s destruction?
Warning: Contains one playboy warrior well-equipped with wicked words, a panty-melting grin, and well-honed moves in and out of the bedroom.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘WAKING EDEN (Eden Series book #3)’:
***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Eden Series.***
‘Waking Eden’ is the third installment of the Eden Series by the talented author Rhenna Morgan. She’s created an exquisite alternate world called Eden and it comes to life within the enchanting novels of this wonderful series. This novel falls into the Paranormal and Fantasy genres and goes beyond those genres with the amazing depths this story brings to the readers. This novel has been written from three character P.O.V.’s(point of views) which are Ramsay Shantos, Trinity Blair, and Serena Doroz Steysis.
Eden may be in danger thanks to the release of certain information about it’s existence in the human realm known to the Myren as “Evad”. Trinity Blair knew some information about what she was, she was told that she was born half human and half Spiritu. Being that she was half Spiritu, she could have the ability to see her fate and use the powers that she is capable of, if she’d only give herself completely over to her Spiritu half. Trinity chooses not to, in order to try and live in the blissful ignorance of her human-half-self and also to stay near her human mother who Trinity worries would be left all alone if she gave herself fully to the Spiritu side. To top it off, Trinity has a phobia of touch, making it very hard for her to ever get truly close to anyone. When she meets someone that surprises her in ways she never expected, will she able to allow him to get closer to her or will her innocence and issue with touching keep him away?
Ramsay Shantos is the brother of the Myren Race’s (king)Malran Eryx. Ramsay has always been a strong warrior of his people. He had recently learned of a prophecy that could help the Myrens. The prophecy says that a Shantos would take a mate with specific marking, bringing a new era for Eden. Ramsay never had a problem finding lady company but it was always shallow and he never felt the need to try for a deeper relationship. When he meets sweet, beautiful, and shy Trinity, he can’t help but fill a strange pull toward her. As he gets to know her, the allure of getting closer to her intensifies. His curiosity about Trinity deepens when he finds something about her that might tie into the prophecy that could change things for his people. When he finds out more about her, will it change how he feels about her?
Serena betrayed the cruel leader of the Lomos Rebellion, her lover Maxis, and now had to find a way to be trusted again after her betrayal put her under a form of house arrest. For the longest time she wanted Eryx, the malran and leader of the Myrens but he’d given his heart to another. Now she would have to face up to her misdeeds and see what her future held. Now that Maxis’ old friend Uther has brought a new plan to her attention, she may have found a way to gain the power that she has been seeking while potentially bringing down those in power. Will everything fall into place or will their underhanded plan fall apart?
As Ramsay and Trinity grow closer, they discover much more about each other. Trinity begins to learn that there’s more to her than she was ever led to believe. As their destiny and prophecy unfolds, where will that leave the Myren’s as well as Ramsay and Trinity? How will Ramsay handle the truth about what Trinity truly is? What tough choices will Trinity face and what will she choose for herself and those she loves? This is such an intricate and wondrous story that follows the stunning array of characters including the main ones of this novel: Ramsay and Trinity. I highly recommend this entertaining novel and series! It’s definitely worth checking out especially if you can enjoy a story that will take you on fantastic journey! 🙂
