Even though I put 4 stars, I'd probably give this 3.5 stars.

This wasn't a bad book to read. It did take me a bit to get into it from the beginning, but it got better. The world and plot were intriguing and I really liked the main character. Angela's personality is fun, innocent, and one I wish I could see in more YA books. Though I enjoyed the story, I still feel it was lacking depth that hindered me from liking the story more.

I wanted to know more about the characters back stories and see

If you love dystopian adventures, then this is the book for you! Saving Eden was a great read, quick for an adult, and perfect for the young adult group!

Teenage Angela has spent her whole life sheltered from what's left of the end of the world. Like most teenagers, she longs to see what else is out there! You'll be drawn in and excited about the development of her story as she becomes more aware of the outside world and her own inner world.

I received an ARC and I am so happy that I did because this is such a great book! The main character, Angela, is reminiscent of Rapunzel in her dreaming of what exists beyond the garden she's grown up in. Her imagination and dreams are inspired by the fairy tales her father has read to her throughout her life. However, Angela can't help but to wonder what else the world has to offer her. A fairy tale meets a dystopian landscape where everyone is just searching for their own happy ending.

After reading this book, I wanted to write and post this review to share my honest experiences toward the story.

This is a fast paced and enjoyable post-apocalyptic read. Angela lives in a little home with her father, and she believes they are the last two people alive on earth. Her father tells her stories, and while confined to her garden paradise, she remains unaware that contaminants have caused the rest of humanity to mutate into murderous beasts. That is, until a boy finds his way into her

"But the real world has teeth, and its sickness reaches far beyond the aftermath of war."

As a debut novel, I have to say that this story is intriguing! I found myself swept up in the story, curious to know what Angela would discover next, and also interested to see just how much the real world had changed. I'm looking forward to book 2!

I received an ARC. I loved it. Saving Eden is a sweet mix of post-apoc/dystopian, fantasy & romance. The characters are well developed and as a northern Illinois girl I loved the Chi-town setting. While this would be a wonderful stand-alone novel, I would love to see a sequel.

I found this book online when the author was looking for readers she gave me the book to read and review. I like the story I especially like that it wasn't a stereotypical end of the world story that i thought it might be, but its more of a story about a society that kills people who are mutants and have special powers. The girl runs away with a boy to this city and finds out that her dad might be in danger back home. She also finds out she has powers but i don't wan to tell the whole story. The ...more

Full disclaimer I was offered the book to read for free in exchange for an unbiased review, but after enjoying the book I bought a copy!

Would I recommend this book to another person?
I would absolutely recommend this book to young adults. The novel has a good pace, while I read tremendously fast, I do think the story is engaging and offers good characters to follow after. I will be adding it to my yearly list of books to recommend for sure. I do think that some details could have come out a

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Great story line. It was very unique for a dystopian novel which I appreciated.
I felt it was lacking a little in supporting character development. Angela herself was spot on for someone who was raised in isolation. I would have liked to really feel the connections she had with fellow characters grow. I think because the novel was so fast paced there wasn’t a lot of room for that. It was laid out very nicely and didn’t have any

I really enjoyed this book and thought the story was cleverly written. I was drawn into Angela's story and found it quite difficult to put the book down once I started reading it. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for when the next one is out as the ending does leave you hoping for more and I was quite disappointed that I finished it so quickly.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Haven't read much dystopian or post-apoc lately but I picked this one up, and enjoyed this story very much. The writer did very well in describing the desolate world and no matter how bleak it was, humanity will try to continue and push forward. It was a story of young naivety that quickly learned a harsh lesson in reality. It wasn't a long read and the story moved at a decent pace. If there is a second book, which I hope, I can't wait to see what happens in that!

Angela is thrown into the apocalypse where a contamination has infected and mutated the majority of the human race. Angela and her father are spared, but loneliness is prominent. Until they are approached by a 17yo who offers an invitation to where other survivors are ....
