This book was a complete surprise.  I was just expecting another dystopian story, but this turned out to be more than that.  This story is mixed with fantasy and magic, and it had a psychedelic twist in the story that reminded me of Alice in Wonderland.  This strange combination worked really well and I couldn't put this book down! But I wish the synopsis didn't reveal so much of the story, it spoiled some of the surprises for me.   I really did like the characters of this story.  Eden was a surprise and is my favorite character! Being isolated in the attic did not make her into a anti-social, self-centered person.  Once she is on the island she enjoys her new freedom but is aware that there is something different with the island.  So rather than just try to escape Eden is determined to learn the truth and to save her new friends. This is a great story with mystery and action. I can't wait for the next book and I highly recommend this book!

I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching for Books for letting me be a part of this tour! Another amazing tour, I might add! Every time I start a new book I have a feeling like I’m starting a new journey, especially if it is a good story. Garden of Eden was a great one! It’s unpredictable, with a lot of twists to it. When you start reading it, you will notice from the first page that it is a dystopian story, and it begins in an attic that it’s formed in a lollipop...more I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching for Books for letting me be a part of this tour! Another amazing tour, I might add! Every time I start a new book I have a feeling like I’m starting a new journey, especially if it is a good story. Garden of Eden was a great one! It’s unpredictable, with a lot of twists to it. When you start reading it, you will notice from the first page that it is a dystopian story, and it begins in an attic that it’s formed in a lollipop shape. It gave me goose bumps. With each single page, it made me to grip tight to my kindle because I was wondering what can happen more. It’s not your ordinary story, it has kids locked up and tortured, afraid to even move a muscle. The characters are extremely well build, especially Eden White, the main character. Let me tell you a little bit about it, so you know what I’m talking about. Eden White it’s a fifteen years girl that it’s haunted by her past; especially the day the Catchers came and to get her family. She was always warned not to leave the house, but that horrible day she left it, not thinking about the consequences. But, she had a string of good luck. That unfortunately day she meets Will, another boy that has had his life turned upside down, but he saves her, even if he is only one year older than her. That day, Eden lost her brother and her sister, and her parents locks her and Will in a tower, thinking this is the biggest protection they can give them. Being locked in there for four years it’s miserable because she feels guilty the Catchers didn’t get her. But, she has Will, and food to keep them alive, but not enough. Her parents always tries to get them something to eat, and they even leave for days at a time. Begging to see a pattern, they decide to take a peek into the world, to see what’s out there. Eden wants more, she wants freedom to do everything she freely, but the always come back to the tower. Will and Eden never think that one day someone will catch them leaving the tower. The bad lucks follows them, and the running stops when the Catchers finds them and they take them to a secluded island that it’s full of kids their age. This time, they are truly afraid, learning about what happens there to the children and start acting different. They grow apart, but Eden doesn’t understand why Will is leaving her, to say so. He was always there, always her friend and she comes to realize that maybe Will is something more. She’s hurt and alone. What can she do? She finally meets someone new, a boy named Tom. He is sweet, and she cares about him, but Will always come’s first, especially in her heart and mind. I’m sad the book ended because I want to read more. Can’t wait for book 2, The Island! I loved Eden and Will, they both were perfectly created. I loved the distinction between Eden and her family. She has dark hair and icy eyes and it’s a little strange from them, her brothers were blonde and beautiful and very talented. She felt like she didn’t belonged there, but she was mistaken. I liked her soul, the fact she had courage at her age and she wanted to know more about the world. She and Will faced a lot of fearful things, but they managed to survive. To see and read the horror of what kids can go through it will leave you breathless. Kate Cowan created a perfect story that will intrigue and will leave you wanting more. It’s impossible not to love the book! I highly recommend Garden of Eden!
