Synopsis: I thought I knew what Hell was like.
I thought I had been living it all these years on Earth—abandoned, forgotten, and left with a dangerous secret that not only made me the Se7en’s #1 target but also turned me into a deadly weapon, a threat to every human in my path.
I was wrong.
In order to survive Lucifer’s plans for me, and his unquenchable thirst for more power, I have to surrender my humanity. I have to lose a part of myself in order to find my way back to him.
Back to the demon who saved me, only to break me.
Back to Legion.
But even supreme evil has its limits, and the real foes never show their devastatingly beautiful faces.
Forget fire and brimstone. They aren’t shit compared to what’s coming.
Centuries-old bonds will be broken. Unlikely alliances will be forged. And innocent blood will be spilled. Blood that will stain my hands for the rest of my mortal days.
I thought I knew what Hell was like.
I was wrong.
Hell is coming.
Hell is just the beginning.
Review: Let me start here by saying that if you are not into dark, strong fantasy narrative, filled with explicit scenes, then this book is NOT for you. Here, I said it.
End of Eden is such a weird book. I found it on Amazon recently, but I have previously read Born Sinners, the first book in the series. And to be completely honest, End of Eden was just not as good as Born Sinners.
Basically, the book takes us on a wild ride. We see Hell from the inside, we meet warlocks, fallen angels, demons and other crazies. But among all of that, I found Eden… annoying. As silly as this sounds, while there is a lot of strong feelings at play here, there is this fine line between feelings and a complete lack of control.
I have to say, I was a little disappointed with the character development, or lack of thereof. While we learn way, way too much about the physical relationships, while the amount of information about different members of the Seven and other characters that we met in the previous book is just… sad. I think I would be much happier if there were a couple less explicit scenes and a little bit more interaction between characters?
I know that some of the readers of this book thought that there should be some trigger warnings – I personally just thought that when you pick up a certain type of book, you need to consider what is going to be presented in this book. The action starts in Hell. An actual Hell. And the situations described reflect it. Beware.
