SavingEden-RCSage refuses to sit on the sidelines while those she loves are taken from her. Determined to bring them back in one piece, she makes a decision that changes her world in more ways than one. Deep inside, she knows there’s no coming back from what she’s done. Part of her wishes she could have taken a different route. Sadly, that’s just wishful thinking. Somehow, some way, she will change the circumstances that have brought her and her friends to where they are now. At least, she hopes so, or she’ll die trying in the process.

I confess I came into this series without truly knowing what’s gone on in the first two books. You can bet I’ll be catching up on them soon, however. This is a story that captures your attention from the moment you open the book. We’re immersed in Sage’s plight as she tries to the do the best she can with the cards life has dealt her.

Rachel shows us the pain and heartache that exists deep inside Sage. We see a woman who’s suffered so much, yet she refuses to give up on the sliver of hope that exists inside her. With every step she takes, we see her world crumble. Despite the fact that there’s so much adversity stacked against her, Sage decides to move forward with the plan she’s built inside her head. Granted, not everything goes as planned. If she can save at least one person, however, it’ll make the decisions she decides to make worthwhile.

I love the fact that the theme of family and unity is repeated throughout this story. We get to see the decisions each character makes in order to ensure their continued existence. Not all of the decisions work in their favor, but they make do just like we do in the world we live. I’ve a feeling there’s more to come for Sage and others. What it is only the author can say. It’ll definitely be chaotic. Perhaps someday all of these characters will truly make the best of things. For now, though, they’re content with the fact that they live to see another day.




With Max and Colt taken by the Institute, Sage is desperate to get them back. So when the leader of the West resistance shows up and offers her a deal she can’t refuse, she eagerly accepts. Finally, she is in a position where she can exact revenge on Ebony and the Institute, while also saving the people she loves. But deals have consequences, and she only has so much time to fulfill her end of the bargain.
