About the Author

Before becoming an award-winning author, ANISE EDEN wanted to be a wildlife photographer. Unfortunately, a strong aversion to large insects, poisonous snakes, and sharks—along with a cat allergy that might well extend to tigers—limited that career option. Also, Anise always roots for the gazelle, and we all know how that usually turns out. Fortunately, Anise’s voracious hunger for reading kept her occupied, eventually morphing into a passion for writing quirky stories filled with heart, humor, and imagination. Anise loves that through writing, she can live out any adventure she likes without the need for antivenom or antihistamines. Visit her online at

All the Broken Places is the first book in The Healing Edge series by Anise Eden. It is her debut paranormal romance book and it is a great start on a very promising series! It is from page one that you get pulled into the world of Cate Duncan and she does not let you leave. I think I felt very strong about Cade’s mother committing suicide as the lead singer of my favourite band just committed suicide a month ago and I am still reeling … For me, the book actually went well beyond the supernatural, it tackles the deep issues of depression, suicide and abuse … I loved Cate the therapist with some unique abilities and my gosh, Ben the head of the program Cate ‘joins’ and the son of the woman heading the whole collection of alternative healers. I have been practicing reiki for almost 20 years so some of the things made me sit back and say, hmm … it is totally possible and it is not so far out …. And all the other people around Cate and Ben, I cannot wait to learn more about them in the books to come or at least I hope so! Thank you Anise for creating a world that will keep bringing us back, even though we all do not have those amazing and crazy gifts as your MacGregor Group, I think there is a lot we can relate to … Don’t we tend to think that we are right and the others are emotional or … We can see that the writer has really done her homework and we can enjoy the fruits of it … I know what I will be reading next week, I have the next book in the series already downloaded … Join me but please read the first book before starting on the second one as well, you will be lost …

All The Broken Places by Anise Eden is a paranormal book written in the first person. This book is well written and I loved the characters! I was hooked from the beginning and found it to be an awesome story. I love empaths and found all the other aspects Like the crystals and aura reader to be super cool.I am very excited to have read this book. As an empath myself I sometimes have a hard time being around certain people and I tend to take on anger of others so it was so cool to read about Cates empathy and read about her struggles. This book does touch on suicide and mental health but I didn't find it to be hard to read or a trigger. I found the book to be unique and engaging. I really have nothing negative to say. I thought it was great and would seek out others. 5 star rating!

All the Broken Places: The Healing Edge – Book One by Anise Eden is a paranormal romance story that will keep you reading until the last word. This is my first book by this author and I enjoyed her writing style, attention to details and her creativity of her characters. She has written a story that will pull you in from the first word until the very last. The twists and turns she has for these characters will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat. You will just have to see for yourself what happens to these characters as they go on their suspenseful journey. Cate Duncan is a promising young therapist who is dedicated to her work until she loses her mother. She is hit hard with her mother's suicide and falling into a deep depression. In order to keep her job, she has agreed to enter a program that is housed in a church. The program is run by a stern doctor named Ben. She doesn't quite understand the program but she will learn that the skills she is taught will not only help with her problems but also will lead her to a greater purpose. This group is a collection of healers that use unconventional ways such as crystals, aura reading and psychics. They need Cate and her abilities. As she goes into her own abyss, this group will do everything possible to protect her from those who want to hurt her and it may just include herself. Cate is a character that seems to absorb all emotions around her. Ben is trying to do everything in his power to help her with her abilities. What will happen when she realizes that she is not alone with what she goes through daily with her abilities? The techniques used in this group have made Cate a little leery but they are determined to convince her that these things work. Will they be able to convince her before it is too late? Ben is a character that I didn't like all the time. He is determined that she enter the program but what he does to try to make her stay is where you won't like him so much. After they spend some time together, Cate starts to realize that she has feelings for him. Will she share these feelings with him but the question remains is, does he have the same feelings for her? I enjoyed Cate's character even though she puts others first whether or not it will put her in danger. Has she gone to far this time and put herself in danger? Will she be able to get back out of it? Find out what happens to Cate and Ben! This is my first story by Anise Eden and I know that I will be going back for more from this series. Anise hunger for reading kept her occupied, eventually turning into passion for writing stories with heart, humor and imagination. This is a fast paced story that you will not want to put down until the last page is done. It will pull you into a paranormal world that is full of suspense. I highly recommend this story as I know you will want to see what abilities Cate has and if they put her in danger, will she be safe? Will she find love in the process?

All the Broken Places is book one in this series. And what a great beginning it is! Anything paranormal, I absolutely love reading about. But the author gives us a truly unique storyline, not your typical paranormal book. Cate, the main character is an empath. She is struggling through life after the death of her mother. Her character and the others involved are very well developed. Each person has their own special ability. The author did a wonderful job making me fall in love with them all! Now I'm ready for the next book! If you like paranormal stories, this is a book that you won't want to put down. A must read that I highly recommend!

To say I LOVED this book is an understatement. Her characterization and writing style is detailed yet engaging. Cate is flawed and easy to relate to. Her relationships in the book were original – I love that she didn’t give us the old boy meets girl romance plot line, but instead provided something more complex. But most of all, I love the powers in this book. Her treatment of the various abilities is clearly based on research. I know Reiki, and the way she described it was accurate without going overboard on the spiritual side, perfect for those new to it. Anise Eden is definitely one of my new favorite authors and will be featured on my blog at Kudos for bringing spirituality into fiction without scaring away the reader! What an excellent, fun read. :)

On the surface, All the Broken Places seems to be a paranormal romance, and it certainly has those elements. The romance was key, but, I think the bigger story was Cate's involvement with the MacGregor Group, and finding a place that she would fit in. This book was about how our insecurities set us apart. That if we embrace who we are, we will find a place to belong. Following Cate on her journey of self awareness was fun, frustrating, and emotional. A journey I really enjoyed! When presented with each member of the MacGregor Group and their gifts, I was surprised at Cate's skepticism. She herself, lived with a pretty strong empath gift, and realized that how she helped her clients was different than the usual therapy techniques. However, I quickly came to the conclusion that her skepticism was a way for the author to introduce all of these other fabulous characters to the reader. Her interactions with them were both funny and heartbreaking. She really didn't have a lot of experience at interacting with others on a personal level. As her mind opened, her people skills improved. After I finished reading I realized that All the Broken Places surprised me! I read the synopsis and thought this could be interesting, but didn't realize that I would relate to the main character so much. The words, psychic, aura, crystals were not unfamiliar to my siblings and I. When we'd have a family reunion, we'd be presented with our chart to read about how our planets were aligned or if Mercury was in retrograde. We had an Aunt that used to rely on horoscopes when hiring employees, and our mother is a retired Hypnotherapist who practices Reiki and meditates using crystal Chakra bowls. I, like Cate, the main protagonist, used to be kind of skeptical, but when presented with evidence, have opened my mind to different possibilities. Reading about Cate's skepticism turned belief reminded me of, well, me. I'm not sure that other readers will have that same affinity for Cate as I did, but it is an enjoyable book to read, the story was interesting, and the character detail was great. You can tell that this is the first book in a series. I can't wait to read the next book! I received a copy of this book from Anise Eden for my honest and unbiased review.

Cate, is going through something, as an empath who wouldn't? After her mom passed its hard for her to even leave the house. As a therapist, it can be kinda hard to do your job. With that, her boss sends her to a program to help her. I understand that Cate has reservations towards it but she learns so much about who she is. How she works. I got annoyed with her often, I mean just let these people help. I think though, throughout Cate really needed them. It was almost like she was destined to cross paths. It seemed really drawn out but don't mistake that as it was bad. Cause it's not, it's a good story about a woman who needs help. Although, she thinks she doesn't need it. We always think we're right and she's emotional but then again she's an empath. I loved learning about about the different types of gifts all of the characters had. Character development was great. The story itself was written really well. There's always that sense of something big is coming, which keeps the reader wondering? What's really happening? Are the people she's grown close to, really have her best interest? I have to give this book an 4 (3.5) it was a good and enjoyable story for its genre. I just didn't really connect with the characters on a level that I thought I wanted....Lissa
