Disclaimer: The fact that the author provided me a copy of Eden's Root in exchange for an honest review has not affected my review.

As a huge fan of dystopian fiction, I may be a little biased in my review. I love so many things about the genre - the characters' needs to survive, their strength through thick and thin, companionships throughout the story, and worlds in which they reside. Eden's Root is no exception. Many of the characters, even the younger ones like Kiara or Zoe, supported each other throughout the book, especially Fi. They literally formed a large Family, and I admired how they always stuck to each other and survived no matter what (view spoiler).

The plot was also engaging. Well-written and with a good dose of action, I couldn't stop reading, despite the length of the book. In a way, the book reminds me of Life as We Knew It, but with more soldiers and a bit darker.

The only problems I had were minor and probably may be solved by reading the sequel, Seeds of War. I found that most of the characters were relatively underdeveloped. (view spoiler). Moreover, Fi seemed almost flawless - she was only 14 when she became leader but is smart, pretty (view spoiler), kind, and knowledgeable about fighting techniques and the sciences.

Overall, if you love dystopias, adventure, or YA in general, Eden's Root is a must-read for you c:
