Eternal Eden (Eden Trilogy #1) By Nicole Williams Review


SUMMARY

College sophomore Bryn Dawson is a self-proclaimed poster child for normal. However, the day William Hayward enters her life, normalcy is the last thing Bryn will be able to count on if she wants to be with him. Too mysterious and appealing to be good for a girl, Bryn feels drawn to him in a way that seems out of her control—as if fate is orchestrating it.

Despite every red flag and warning siren going off in her head telling her not to, Bryn falls hard for William, knowing he’s categorically different from anyone she’s ever met. She never imagined how right she was. When William takes her deeper into the rabbit hole of his world, Bryn must decide just how much she is willing to sacrifice to be with him, knowing no matter what, fate always finds a way to have the last laugh.

Spinning a new twist on star-crossed lovers, Eternal Eden will put Bryn through a gauntlet of turmoil, challenging her to find the power within herself to become the heroine in her own story.

REVIEW

Nicole Williams’s character’s live and breathe and create such a strong and captivating romance. Bryn and William's romance is passionate and just so romantic, to put it mildly.

 Other characters brought forth throughout the novel are absolutely perfect as well, as they add tension, humour and more love to the story. Some would say Bryn and Williams love to be a little unrealistic, but first off all, this is a young adult paranormal romance novel… Of course not everything is going to be realistic, paranormal love is always way more passionate and strong anyways.

I absolutely loved William’s family and look forward to learning more about them in the next installment; Nathaniel and Abigail were mysterious, Cora & Joseph wonderful and Patrick hilarious! I like knowing an author has put a lot of thought into her characters and come up with some surprising and delightful detail that makes the whole reading experience enjoyable.

Just like any great book, there is an element of good versus evil. This leads to action, heart racing drama, and some great page turning twists.
