Adam Spotted-Paw has always had the gift of matchmaking. For over 700 years, he has been the one to bring together generations of his people on the peaceful planet of Raxis. In all that time, however, he has not been able to find his own mate – until she crash lands into his Temple and captures his heart.
Independent Rogue Commander, Evelyn Moonchaser has been doing her part to fight in the Galactic Wars which has lasted over 1500 years. She is shot down after recovering something from the enemy that could end the war permanently. Of course, she wasn’t expecting to have such strong feelings towards her rescuer. She thinks he is crazy when he speaks of her being his mate, but Adam would stop at nothing to prove to her that she is indeed the other half of his soul.
Forever Eden is a thrilling, fast-paced sci-fi adventure by an author that I hope to be reading a lot more of in the future. Immediately, I was pulled into this roller coaster ride of a story which has a frenetic pace that never lets up.
The chemistry between Adam and Evelyn is nearly palpable as they get to know each other in a tense situation. There is never any doubt that the hero and heroine will end up together but the author has written the story in such a way that their journey to love and bliss is enjoyable to read without seeming too predictable.
It’s very obvious that Forever Eden takes place in an already established universe of L. Shannon’s creation and for that I felt that some of the plot’s nuances may have been lost on me. Nevertheless, I was extremely impressed by Ms. Shannon’s ability to craft a fully realized novella that feels like a much longer novel for all the action contained within. This is my first time reading a story by this author but rest assured that will be rectified in the very near future.
WOO HOO! Thank you Misa!
