Overview

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?

By far my favorite of the three, although each story focuses on a specific couple, we get more answers and information about the overarching story arc. Answers are coming about the prophesy and while many of the repercussions are still nebulous, the understanding of one’s role is clearer, at least to Ramsay. He NEEDS to find the puzzle and work it out. Even as he’s decried connections and entanglements, when he first heard Trinity’s voice he couldn’t stop the strong and strange reaction of MINE running through his head. He’s not interested, or so he tells himself, but he can’t possibly stay away. For her part, Trinity’s life has been troubled. She knows she’s not entirely human, but she’s not sure what it means or what benefits she can gain from it. To this point, she’s afraid to touch anyone since seeing every secret of a person when she was little. She’s blocked herself off from people – retreating in books and the comfort they provide, sharing their wonders with patrons of the library. From the start, the connection between Ramsay and Trinity is different. She’s not experiencing the soul-shaking sightings when they touch, and her desire for contact without the images and secrets overwhelm her. While Ramsay is trying to puzzle out why she and his sister-in-law have the same pendant, he’s more than willing to step in and be her teacher for all things sensual. We do see some of Serena’s continued plans to enslave humans, as well as several moments with Lexi and Eryx as they are working to dissemble the prophecy and defeat or forestall Serena’s plans as she manipulates and masterminds for control. With a few more insights into the story as pieces start to fit into their place in the puzzle, this instalment is a wonderful addition. Not a story that would be easy to follow if you haven’t read the earlier books, this is my favorite for the wonderful connection and depth that is coming forward with each pairing. The mysteries around the prophecy aren’t half bad either, and while I have some ideas of where it could go, Rhenna Morgan has again managed to create interest and drop a few hints to further my interest. I received an eArc copy of the title from the Author via the Tour Company for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I've waited, it seems like forever, for Ramsay's story. Just like the wait was worth enduring for Healing Eden, the wait was totally worth enduring for Waking Eden. (A side note, before I go on, please make sure to read the books in order. Each book is about a different couple but events in each book are building up to what I know will be one hell of a finish.) In this story, the mighty warrior Ramsay falls like only a mighty man can. And it isn't by any weapon that could physically disable him but by a woman who intrigues him and, eventually, captures him. That woman is Trinity. And she is nothing like I was expecting. For one, she is completely deprived of touch. Her gift allows her to see everything about a person with just a touch. She sees it all--the good, the bad, the downright ugly. So she keeps her hands to herself and goes about her quiet life, until Ramsay. There is a point in every book I've read when the hero and heroine experience an "Ah-hah!" moment. The first time Trinity touched Ramsay was that moment. It wasn't because of that electric spark or that fiery sensation that is often used to describe attraction in books. It was because she experienced touch for the first time in her life without seeing into the other person. She finally met someone she can enjoy touching and be touched by. There is a problem though. What Trinity is, spiritu, is what Ramsay despises. No matter how strong the attraction is that he feels for her, getting over his hatred is priority. The growth Ramsay and Trinity show is beautiful to watch. They grow past their insecurities and reach for a future that's filled with promises and light and love. Despite the chaos in Eden, despite the uncertainty of the Kingdom's future, despite the race against time to decipher an ancient prophecy, Ramsay and Trinity flourish and burst from the ashes of destruction much like a phoenix rises at its rebirth. You truly don't want to miss this series. I can't say enough about Ms. Morgan's ability to world build and evoke a reaction from this reader. Even if reading fantasy isn't your thing, I sincerely hope you give Eden a try. I promise, you won't regret it. Received from author for an honest review

Waking Eden by Rhenna Morgan is the third book in The Eden Series. This book should not be read as a standalone, you will need to read them in order to fully understand what is going on. Ramsay Shantos is forced to hunt words and legends instead of rebels. He is a sexy alpha who is good at playing the part of the playboy but on the inside is confused and somewhat frightened to find his mate and change his way of life. When sexy librarian Trinity Blair comes into his life Ramsay falls hard and fast. Trinity is an anomaly. Due to her mixed heritage and special gift she can't touch anyone without her mind seeing all that person's dark secrets. This has left Trinity lonely and longing for intimacy and the casual touch of another person until she meets Ramsay. Ramsay is somehow immune to Trinity's gift and as she finds herself falling for the sexy man she finds herself wondering if this is fate throwing them together or if Ramsay is the dangerous crossroad her father has always warned her about. I really enjoyed these two characters and look forward to reading more from this author. I would recommend this book and series to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance. I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.

The Eden series keeps getting better and better. This story is filled with lots of attitude, some very hot scenes and a few amusing situations. Waking Eden continues the story regarding the four-thousand-year-old Prophecy warning of immense change for Eden. Serena and Tyrus return in this book and they are plotting evil twists while adding lots of suspense and intrigue to an already intensely satisfying read. Other secondary characters making an appearance are Alexis (Lexi) and Eyrx, Reese and Galena, Ian, Ludan, Jagger, and Brenna who also appeared in the previous books to the Eden Series. The author continually amazes me at how flawlessly she adds elements and details to her stories to keep the reader off balance as they progress into the story. It is quite pleasant reading a story I can't figure out. Yes hunky Ramsay isn't a very happy man when he is forced out of his element of fighting into the role of solving the Prophecy. And it is exciting watching him work through the solving of this problem with the knowledge that Trinity might be part of the puzzle. But I sure got some good chuckles as Trinity pushes all his buttons and not always in a good way. Their instant attraction causes problems for both of them and continually made me chuckle at their verbal interactions as Trinity tries to resist and avoid him. Trinity's life growing up was painful and the person she has become is admirable. I found her continued attempts to have a relationship with her adopted mom heart warming and painful at the same time. I am not sure if I would want her gift of touch and being able to read everyone's thoughts but her Spiritu gifts do interest me. I am sure looking forward to Luden and Brenna's story "Eden's Deliverance" and I give Waking Eden 5 STARS for the intricacy of the story. I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest opinion.

This is the third book in this series and they must be read in order. Ramsay is second in line to the thrown and is glad he isn’t the king. He isn’t ready to settle down and likes things free and easy; which is why he takes a treat to Evad for some fun. Everything in Eden has been crazy with prophecy and everyone finding their mates. Little does he know this trip will change everything but will he accept it or fight it the whole way through? While at a club he spots Trinity and her necklace; a necklace that looks just like the prophecy drawing. He immediately is suspicious of her. How does she connect to the prophecy, what does she know? Trinity has a secret but it doesn’t have anything to do with the prophecy. She has lived her whole life not being able to touch anyone. When she does she can see all their lusty, dark thoughts. She things the things no one wants to see that a person is thinking. Her biological father is a Dark Spiritu. Ramsay can’t get her out of his head and goes back to talk to her and try to get her to talk with him however he can. Then Trinity learns she can touch him without hearing his thoughts. She is leery of him and what he may want. Then she decides to strike a bargain with him. Help him get the info he wants and he will give her what she has been missing, the physical things she has missed out on. Could this plan work? Will Trinity be able to stop from feeling more for Ramsay? Will Ramsay develop feelings for her? What will happen when Ramsay learns of her spiritu side? I really really liked this book. The series is different from others by far. Ramsay has always kept just about everyone at a distance never letting them get to close emotionally. Will he allow this to affect what he could have with Trinity as well? Trinity is funny, spunky, and painfully sad. She wants to find someone she can connect with and touch and believes she has found this in Ramsay but he has his own issues and insecurities to deal with. It was fun getting to read about the other characters in this series as well in this book. I can’t wait for more books in this series and to see what happens next. Who will be the next one to find their mate? What will happen next with the prophecy? I was given this book in return for an honest review.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. That said, I also came into it at a disadvantage, as I haven't read books 1 & 2. Rhenna Morgan makes it easy to keep up with the story, so I enjoyed Waking Eden. Trinity is a complete innocent and as such, as a heroine she is a bit wishy washy. She is a librarian, and can't handle human touch because of powers from her father, Kazan. Ramsay is not so innocent, the brother of the king of Eden. He is worn, and world weary until he meets Trinity. He is sexy, smooth and very alpha. His wounded soul is damaged just enough to make him interesting. Their passion blooms amidst intrigue, romance and sex-ed! I really enjoyed the villain, Serena, she was delightful self absorbed and sociopathic! I wish she had her own book! All in all a good, fast read. Great for the beach or for late night!

Waking Eden by Rhenna Morgan is the 3rd book in her Eden series. We knew after Eryx and Lexie were mated in the first book, and Galena and Reese in the second book, that this book belonged to Ramsay. Even though his siblings (Eryx and Galena) found their mates, Ramsay doesn’t believe he will ever need a mate. Ramsay is his brother’s protector, and takes his job seriously, especially with some unrest in their kingdom. He enters the human territory to try to discover the true meaning of a prophecy warning about a big change in Eden. While relaxing with his friends in a bar, he bumps into Trinity, our heroine, and immediately falls to the floor unconscious. Trinity Blair is secretly a spiritu; she has the ability to touch people and see everything about them, including deep dark secrets. Trinity avoids touching anyone, and when she accidently bumps into Ramsay, she realizes he is not affected by her touch. Ramsay discovers that Trinity is more than human, and makes it his business to learn more about her. What follows is a romance that will heat up quickly, as Trinity finds herself attracted to the hot hunk that Ramsay is, and the fact that now she has found someone who can make her enjoy his touch. Ramsay is attracted to Trinity, but sees something around her neck that is a duplicate of Lexi’s branded tattoo. Who is Trinity Blair? Once Eryx and Lexie (they have a nice size part in this story) find out about the pendant, they are determined to bring Trinity to Eden. Ramsay goes back to Trinity, and shortly thereafter, her secret is revealed causing Ramsay to bring her to Eden. Lexi and her become close immediately; with vibes that they are somehow related. Ramsay has always kept himself distant from relationships, but in a short time he begins to feel a pull towards Trinity, and knows she is the woman for him; first he must get past the fear of being involved with a spiritu. Ramsay and Trinity have a lot of sizzling chemistry together, especially as he teaches her all the things she has missed being unable to touch anyone. Trinity has a hard time coming to terms that she belongs in the Myren life, and soon will meet the Spiritu King and Queen that will help guide her in what she is and how to use her powers. Serena, one of the villains, in the first book returns. Eryx and Lexie know she is bad to the bone, but they cannot prove it. We get to see Serena join hands with traitors against Eryx to plot his demise. This evil group wants to take over Eden, and destroy all humans. Will they prevail? Much of this is left hanging for the next book. I loved Ramsay and Trinity together, and was happy to see much of their issues resolved. I also loved seeing our other heroes from the first two books continue to be a big part of this story. Together, Eryx, Lexi, Ramsay, Trinity, Galena, Reese and those loyal to them will have to work together to understand the prophecy and defeat their enemies, and this series will continue.

While each book in the Eden series focuses on a separate couple, I would suggest starting with book one. I started with book 3 and felt like I missed the beginning of the story, because I did. That does not take away from how much I really enjoyed this book. I am definately going back to book one and starting over. This is one of those series that although they feature different couples, you get the continuation of the couples from previous books. Every single character in this book was important and I was drawn to each and every one of them. This story line is fresh and is steadily building towards an epic ending. I highly recommend this series to readers who love paranormal romance. ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Waking Eden is book three in the Eden series by Rhenna Morgan. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by the author. Wow, just Wow. This series keeps getting better and better. I think this is my favorite book so far. I loved Trinity and Ramsay. “Destiny is what you make it.” Ramsay Shantos, the twin of Eryx Shantos, is in Evad trying to find any clues to help to solve the mystery of the prophecy. All he wants is a night off. A night to remember how it felt before when he was wild and free. So he and two of his friends went in to a popular night spot. He heard her voice before he actually saw her face. As soon as he really saw her, though, that little word started pinging around in his brain, “mine.” Trinity Blair knows she’s not completely human. She is half spiritu. Her upbringing hasn’t been pleasant. Her adoptive father was killed and her mother became a religious fanatic. Trinity is a librarian. She loves books. Trinity was only a child when she realized that when she touched a person, she saw their deepest, darkest secrets. So she has spent her life without touch. No hugs, no kisses, nothing. Until that night in the bar. When Ramsay touched her, nothing. She didn’t feel anything at all. Could this be her chance? Her chance to experience all the things she has longed for? “You’re different, special. The kind of woman a man knows instinctively she’ll be worth walking through histus and back for.” Trinity is wearing a pendant identical to the markings his sister-in-law, Lexi bears. What connection could this woman possibly have to Lexi? So now he has an excuse to spend time with her, to figure out why she is wearing the pendant. There’s more to it then that, though. Ramsay just wants to be near her. To figure out what this pull he is feeling towards her is. Ramsay has a hard time accepting the feelings building inside him. He has spent a lifetime keeping people at a distance. Trinity has awakened something. So when Trinity asks him to teach her all the things she has longed for, how to be intimate with a man, he accepts the position eagerly. It will give him an excuse to be with her and then he can figure out what is up with the pendant and get her out of his system, right? Or not. At the same time, back in Eden, Serena has been tried for her crimes and given her sentence. But this seems to fuel her desire more than ever to gain power. She wants to be in power, no matter who she sacrifices to get there. She has a new partner in crime that has his own agenda. Serena is still her usual devious, diabolical self. We get plenty of Lexi and Eryx in this book which I loved. So the Shantos clan is desperate to solve the prophecy and to stop those that seek to overthrow the kingdom and enslave the humans. And Serena is desperate to do just that. But mostly, this is just Ramsay and Trinity’s story. Both of these people have cut themselves off from emotion, from love. But I believe that fate was saving them for each other. They were a perfect fit. I loved these two together. And for me, there is something about the student, teacher scenario that gets me every time. When Trinity asked Ramsay to teach her, I about melted into a pile of goo. Did I already say they were perfect? Well, they are. This series is best read in order. So if you haven’t started it yet, this is your big chance. Start at the beginning and meet Lexi and Eryx.

After finishing book 2, Healing Eden, I was really having withdrawal while waiting for Waking Eden. Once I got my hands on a copy, I dove right into the story. As always with this series, there was no shortage of engaging and feisty characters. The early scenes with Serena on trial really helped take me back to the previous book and recapped the events that took place, while allowing me to reunite with some much-beloved characters. There always seems to be too much space between book releases and I find that I need to reflect back to familiarize myself with many of the characters and details again. Once the story got rolling however, everything just fell into place and flowed how it should. I found it hard to stop reading and walk away from the book. Trinity and Ramsay in Chapter 13 were super hot! As the secrets of the old text were translated by Serena and it became somewhat of a race against the clock, I was on the edge of my seat. I couldn't wait to see how Trinity and her mixed background would come into play. She became so strong and determined through her union with Ramsay. As the prophecy became clearer, I was eager to see how everything would be resolved, but then that ending came and left me practically salivating for the next book! This series never disappoints.
