Review + Giveaway: Eden’s Root by Rachel Fisher

The year is 2033 and the world hovers on the edge of explosion as unexplained crop deaths lead to severe global food shortages. In the United States, the Sickness is taking lives slowly, creeping its way into every family. Fi Kelly has already faced the Sickness in her own family, toughening her beyond her years. But a shocking confession from her dying father will push her toughness to its absolute limits. Saddled with an impossible secret and the mission of saving her little sister, Fi sets out to transform herself into the warrior that she must become to survive the coming collapse. Along the way, she will discover that evil can be accidental and that love can be intentional.

Today I have a mini-review of Rachel Fisher’s debut book, Eden’s Root, plus your chance to win a copy! (There are 16 e-books and 2 physical copies of each book released so far! Lots of chances to win. Check the bottom of the post for the raffle. ;) )

First off, I love the cover for Eden’s Root! It has this simplistic beauty at first glance, but on a second look there’s a bit more there. I love it.

Fisher has obviously gone to great lengths to research food sources and the science behind Eden’s Root, I was fascinated by what Fi’s dad told her. Fisher’s debut is the sort of dystopian that has a creepy realistic feel that made me think.

As for the characters, Fi’s a strong female lead (woot!) that I couldn’t help but root for. I have to be honest, the adult characters (with a few exceptions) made me want to scream. The ones that were ill had excuses, but some were just so weak. Weak to the point I found myself kind of horrified. Here’s this 14 year old girl leading entire family’s to safety, with little resistance.

Aside from that, I was fascinated by the “future” Fisher created and can’t wait to read more from her.

I received my copy of Eden’s Root in exchange for my honest opinion from the author for the ATOMR Book Tour.

        It seems to be working for me! You might try giving it a bit and refreshing it. I know over the past week or so they’ve had a bit of outage problems. :) If it continues let me know.

    The rafflecopter is not working for me either. I’ve tried refreshing several times but it didn’t work.

      Others seem to be able to enter, so I’m not sure if it’s having issues randomly or what. Since it’s not my giveaway I can’t do much, but I will email the host and see if they can. :)
