Overview

After decades of squandering and abusing the earth's natural resources the future of mankind was bleak. Humanity searched the earth for any remaining energy, hoping to discover an answer before the lights went out. They resurrected the ancient grounds of Eden, hoping to find its power - an extraordinary ore offering an unlimited source of energy.
Gabriel Roberts, the son of the ore's discoverer, awakens to a horrific storm that kills his mother and leaves him with a piece of the ore plunged into his chest. He survives and is found by rescue teams the next day; their helpful nature changes as they discover what's in his chest. Panicked Gabriel unleashes a massive explosion from the ore in his chest. His estranged brother, Adin, arrives after the blast and takes him to hide live with him in the metropolis of Denver. It isn't long before strangers come looking for Gabriel.
Attacked in the night, Gabriel is saved by a young woman with supernatural abilities. She leaves him promptly with only a warning to stay hidden and not to trust anyone. Gabriel rushes back to reconnect with his brother, but trouble follows and rips the two apart once again. Gabriel makes a daring escape, hoping Adin will be spared as their attackers chase after him.
His world begins to spin out of control as he discovered a hidden war, raging on behind the scenes. As Gabriel learns about the true nature of the ore in his chest, he forced to choose a side. A decision that will shape the course of humanity.

This book is a stand alone read or a great beginning of a series if you love series. It is fast paced and leaves you wanting more. You will quickly care about the characters and become involved with them. For a first time author, I would recommend this worth reading and believe we will hear much more about B.V. Bayly in the future. A great look at the future with moral substance.

I just finished reading this book for the second time. I had read it when it first came out and then read it again for our book club. I found this to be a very engaging and enjoyable story. Our unwitting hero, Gabriel Roberts, is immediately thrust into the limelight by unexpected, fantastic circumstances that send him on a fast-paced adventure. The plot twists are just plausible enough and the setting includes sufficient recognizable  geographical and political signposts that the story is not sacrificed on the altar of deep background. Avoiding this common pitfall of many Fantasy/Science Fiction stories allows the author to deliver his tale with lots of action and drama. Eden’s Ore, Secrets delivers just the right mix of tension, intrigue and heroics. Very enjoyable. Can’t wait for the next adventure from B.V. Bayly.

only half way through but dying to find out what happens! currently reading the kindle version - just about half way through and its a really good read - it grabs you at the start and quickly turns into a whole different story that maybe you were not expecting! but just as good and keeps it as a great page turner I cannot wait to see where it ends up. I would say science fiction as a genre however there is much more to it than that - I would certainly give this new author a try as if this is his first book I cannot wait for the 2nd, 3rd and onwards! I will be adding this author to my reading list!

The first chapter had me hooked. I love a book that opens with action and intrigue. Already my mind was racing ahead trying to figure out where the story was going to go. I felt like it took a few chapters to establish the background, and I was tempted to skim them since they felt a little slow compared to the first. I’m glad I persevered though because the story really picks up again. If you need a bathroom break, take it around chapter five because once you get past there, you won’t want to put the book down. The main character, Gabriel, was a surprise. I knew from the back of the book that he was going to have a freak encounter with “Eden’s Ore” but what I didn’t expect was how that would change him. He begins the novel as a 20 year old farm kid with no sense of direction and ends up being forced into a hero role with a clear sense of direction. A very clear sense. He takes it on rather begrudgingly at first and we get to witness his personal growth. There are, of course, a few other subplots going on during the course of the novel, but in my opinion it all comes down to the classic good versus evil. Naturally I root for the good side to win, but with this journey it was never clear who was going to remain standing at the end. There is more-than-adequate resolution for this story, but the author has clearly set us up for the next book. And maybe more after that? I shed a few tears at one point – a pretty good sign that I was actually engaged with the characters and I look forward to seeing where they all are at the beginning of book two.  Bottom line: I saw this whole book play out in my mind like a movie. The blend of the story and the way it was told made for fantastic action in my mind. I would love to see it on the big screen one day. I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone looking to get their “toes wet” in the Sci-fi genre and to those that are already established fans. It does not disappoint.

The novel feels like an origin story. Gabriel is thrust from the world he knows and into an unfamiliar one. We get to discover this new, slightly futuristic world alongside him and experience his emotional roller-coaster as if we were right there with him. Gabriel was described as (I think) an 18 or 19 year old but I always pictured him as a 14/15 year old the way he interacted with people and progressed through the story making be believe YA-Fans would like this book as well. Gabriel is given the role of a hero, one he’s uncertain of. He doesn’t know all the answers and each move he makes is being watched. I loved the uncertainty and the human aspect to this character. I’d recommend this to Sci-Fi/Fantasy & YA fans. There’s everything from action, discovery, science and a bit of a mystery. If that’s not enough, the main character makes the story highly enjoyable and I found myself rooting for him.
