When Sarajane is taken to Saskia, she could never have imagined the reality of the world that she is stepping into- a world where magical abilities are in everyone’s possession. She must face a father she never knew, a world that is beyond her belief, a guardian who captures her heart; and a darkness that wants to take it. On her journey, Sarajane discovers her magical abilities, and realizes too that they come with a price. She is truly tested as her own loved ones are put at risk- the ultimate question she is forced to ask herself is, how do you choose who lives and who dies?
MAGICAL-BE PREPARE TO BE BLOWN AWAY!
I received an ARC from the author Aoife Sheridan- in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey’s very honest opinion of Eden Forest Saskia Part 1 of the Trilogy. First let me say this- I have never read anything written by this author before. Therefore I wasn’t sure what and boy was I blown away with it! Having read Part 1 – I now really need to finish out this series. I am so looking forward to the next 2 books.
Ms. Sheridan is a very talented writer. She has picked up her pen to paper an weaved magic. The characters in the story jump right off the page at you. She is able to bring them to life in such detail. As for the scenes in the book- they are so well described. You can picture them right down to the smallest detail.
Eden Forest opens with Marta telling the story. She is describing what is happening around her and to her. No one is allowed to take a lover in Saskia before marriage. And no one is allowed to marry before the age of 25. The King & Queen decides who are to marry. However- Marta has taken a lover and it’s the King!. Ssh don’t tell anyone but they are expecting a child also. Her best friend is also pregnant and she has only told her about her secret. When it’s time for her baby to come she asks Marta to run to the castle to get the maidens. Upon arriving the Queen states she will come also. Once the little is born it is determined if he has the element of air-earth-fire-water. If the little has air then he is taken from his mother right then and there. Which is what happens. Seeing this happen Marta decides the only she can to protect her unborn child is to leave Saskia and run to the mortal world. She builds a life there in Ireland with a husband by the name of John- they have a daughter Jessica. Years laters in mortal time but not in Saskia time. As Marta is walking in the forest with the family. She is taken captive by Clive and his men. They take her back Saskia- thinking she is going back for escaping. When she Queen Bellona again she finds out otherwise. The Queen has know about her affair all this time. When the King finds out that his love is being held he sends his trusted men to get her. He finds out about his daughter -the only way to protect her is to bring her Saskia. Now Sarajane knows nothing about Saskia or about the King. He sends Tristan along with 2 others to get her. As they are bringing her back they call her Princess. She wants to know why is she is here – they won’t tell her. Sarajane finally gets to the cave where her mother is- she can hardly believe her eyes. She finds out people are trying to kill her.
This story has so many twist and turns in it. You are taken on a magical ride in a mythical land. It is parallel to modern day Ireland. This is a wonderful story and holds your attention all through the book. To know what happens Sarajane in Sasaki you will need to finish reading this FANTASTIC- TERRIFIC -GENIUS of book!! This book is written for the older ya – but I also recommend it to adults and those that love a excellent paranormal book. Mismousey gives this book a 70 out of 5 stars.
