Hello and welcome to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog I have my book review of:
The Lost Eden is the first book in the Elemental Eden series.
Trigger / Content Warning: Drowning, Multiple Drownings, Humiliation, Murder, Blood, Wrongful Arrest.
Please note that there’s a chance that I didn’t catch any other possible triggers pertaining to The Lost Eden.
In a world ruled by elemental magic where everyone holds the ability to manipulate one element I, Eden Montgomery, was a misfit.
My entire life I thought I was a magical dud, thrown into an orphanage by my parents as a baby and forced to work a dead end job at a magical coffee shop just to get by. In a place where everyone was extraordinary I had come to terms with being ordinary.
Until my twentieth birthday when a handsome young stranger walked into the shop and my life changed forever.
But what he said couldn’t possibly be true- that I was the lost eden, a mage with the ability to control all four elements.
But when my best friend is captured by a fire wielding king hell bent on enslaving all the other mages I have no choice but to listen and try my hardest to tap into the power everyone thinks I have.
Only an eden can unite all of the magical sectors to rise up against the king.
I was prepared to master the four elements, but I wasn’t prepared to fall for the four hot elemental princes who were tasked with helping me save the world.
Can I actually master the ancient arts in time to save the world?
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
The Lost Eden was a pretty rad read, not gonna lie. I actually really enjoy reading elemental stories. I love the twists and turns that people create with them! And The Lost Eden did not disappoint.
Of course I liked the reverse harem elements to the story as well. I’ve been quite obsessed with them as of late, so, yay! Nevertheless, I’m excited and incredibly curious as to see where the author (and the character
*winky face* goes with the RH elements).
In terms of the story development, I’m really excited to see how everything develops. Especially with how everything will fall into play!
The ending to The Lost Eden has one of the best cliffhangers I’ve read in a while. Like I could stop reading the series if I wanted to, and I’d be okay with that–how the story ended. However! I’m way too freaking invested now, hahaha. I can’t not read the rest of the series!
One minor thing though, that minor plot twist where the main characters best friend had changed? ooh bitch, I’d fuck her up too.
All in all, I’m giving The Lost Eden, 3 stars!
Have you read The Lost Eden?
Thank you for stopping by.
See you soon, and happy reading!
