Anthem’s Fall Book Blast and $10 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway (ends 10/10)

Anthem'sFalltourbannerAnthemsFall_ebookAbove a horrified New York City, genetics and ethics collide as the fallen emperor and a banished exile of the same herculean race ignite into battle over the city’s rooftops. In the streets below, a brilliant young scientist has discovered a technology that can defeat them both, yet might be more terrible than either.

Set both in modern New York City and in the technologically sophisticated yet politically savage world of Anthem, Anthem’s Fall unfurls into a plot where larger than life characters born with the prowess of gods are pitted against the shrewd brilliance of a familiar and unlikely heroine.

The young emperor Vengelis Epsilon narrowly escapes the reckoning of his empire at the hands of strange machines known as Felixes. The Felixes are identical in every respect to the godlike men of Vengelis’s world save for their mechanical blue eyes. Feared to be indestructible, the wanton holocaust of the Felix appears inescapable. His family murdered and his empire maimed under a shadow of destruction, Vengelis pursues the pained final words of his dying mentor, and sets course for a remote and unchartered world–our world.

The son of the man who created the Felixes, Gravitas Nerol has spent four years in lonely exile. His crime? When the Lord General of the Epsilon Army ordered the genocide of a vastly inferior race, Gravitas refused him. A warrior to his marrow, Gravitas has cast aside his former life and committed himself to the pursuit of knowledge.

Kristen Jordan is a young and talented graduate student working on a cutting edge research team. Their wildly inventive new biotechnology, the Vatruvian cell, is the celebrated milestone of modern science. Yet Kristen remains uneasy about the capabilities of the inexplicable Vatruvian cell, and as their project develops, it begins to ring oddly familiar to the perilous technology of Vengelis’s home.

My Review:

Plagues of Eden sucked me in from the very first page.  To be honest, it was the title that first attracted me.  I mean anything with the word plagues in the title has to be intriguing, right? (For instance, my post on The Plagues of Homeschool).

This book is a fast-paced race against time through Egypt, France, China, and Italy, with a few other places thrown in for good measure.  The main characters are all complicated people, walking the often thin line between good and evil.   Some fall occasionally (as do we all) and some throw themselves headlong into the abyss.  The ethics and emotions of these difficult choices are the building blocks of the book.  The action and adventure is bonus!

The mysterious Eden in the book is a fascinating near-utopia that I would love to read more about.  I especially enjoyed the interaction between Jaime, Yani and the other “Gardeners” of Eden.

My least favorite point of view in fiction is third person omniscient.  For me, reading the perspective of too many different characters (more than say 4 or 5) is just too confusing.  Unfortunately, many writers these days tend to gravitate towards this particular point of view.   This book is no exception, and while I enjoyed it thoroughly, the frequently changing perspective is my only real complaint.

I give Plagues of Eden 4 1/2 stars.  It’s fun, frenetic and sometimes frantic.  You’ll love it!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review through Promotional Book Tours.  All opinions are 100% my own.
