Library Journal review:

Andrews, Vivi. Reawakening Eden. Samhain. 2011. 50p. eISBN 9781609286378. EPUB $4.50. POSTAPOCALYPTIC ROMANCE
Short and fast paced, Reawakening Eden is 50 pages of post-apocalyptic dystopia with romantic overtones. After a virus wipes out over 99 percent of the world’s population, librarian Eden Fairfax gathers two orphan children and heads south from Alaska to search for a place where they can live more comfortably. They join a ragtag community in Seattle that turns out to be a religious cult. As Lucas and Hannah Rose are the only children whom anyone has seen alive since the epidemic, Eden’s appearance with them gives the cult leader the idea to use Eden as a new Eve to begin repopulating the earth. After barely escaping his clutches and fleeing to Idaho, they run into Connor Reed, a widowed former Army Ranger who offers them shelter. But Eden’s pursuers haven’t given up and are willing to do almost anything to get her back.
Verdict: Owing to the brevity of this latest story by Andrews (Serengeti Sunrise), plot takes precedence over characterization, and everything is drawn in light pencil sketches. More depth would have served Eden and Connor’s intense romance better and expanded on the melancholy of a lost world.‚ Charli Osborne, Oxford P.L., MI
