    One thought on “Eden Rising

    1. Karla

      "Marilyn picks you up and cuddles you and then hurls you back to the ground again. She's like the Mommie Dearest of writers."I'm stealing that with permission from my sister, who has been a witness to my marathon reading of this series. Even though she hasn't read these books yet, she summed up my feelings perfectly. It's been a brutal, emotional trip and, by the time I picked this book up, I knew there was one hard and fast rule: BRACE YOURSELF FOR HEARTBREAK.When we last left John Murrey Eden, [...]

      "Years from now you must not wake up, as I did, and remember you have caused pain. Let me spare you that, if I can. Take my hand" John Murrey Eden's obsessive manipulating has driven all of his loved ones away, and he's resided in a now crumbling Eden Castle alone in his madness - almost alone but telling you would be a big spoiler so I won't. At the loss of that one person, John takes to the castle ramparts and some fear he'll jump (fear hell, the villagers are lining up to watch). Nurse Susan [...]

      John Murray Eden has quite a past. A young innocent boy in The Prince of Eden, a spurned lover (that's one way of putting it) in The Eden Passion, and a tyrannical megalomaniac in The women of Eden, the beginning of Eden Rising finds him a hated recluse with only ghosts for company after finally driving away all his family with his cruelty. A recent tragedy sees him on the brink - literally - but he's spotted by nurse Susan who brings him back to health. When he realises she's the cause of the s [...]

      OK, I got sick and ended up having to stay home for several days, so I skimmed through a few more of these books, even tho I wasn't crazy about the 2nd in the series. All I can say for the two books leading up to this is misery and more misery. It's well written, well researched, and just so bloody gloomy I found myself readily putting the books down and only picking them back up with reluctance. This one is a bit better, though still awfully depressing. I have the last two in the series but I t [...]

      What art thou, Susan Mantle? And what are you doing traipsing around in the Eden Saga?We know the Eden Clan, these insanely megalomaniacal crazy creeps. The Edens wouldn't be the Edens if not at least 90% of their offspring wasn't at least crazy, sadistic, freakishly unlucky, homosexual, a cheater or at the very least an incestuous Oedipus. If the Edens were indeed none of the above and the rampant tragedies that follow on each others tails were replaced with tea parties and well-wishes being ex [...]

      The entire series (7) is a great look at way things were in these period pieces starting in 1890 and ending with WWW I. Takes place mostly in England and a little in India and America.

      This is the 5th & final book in the powerful Eden Saga. Very good book. Tragic what happens to Elizabeth. However, it changes John, for the better! He finally finds true love & most of the family actually returns to Eden castle at the Eden, except for Mary & Burke, whom no one has heard from since left to go to America; and Aslam, as well, whom surprisedly has turned against John. He & Lord Richard are lovers in this book! Totally shocking seeing as how he was so against "sodomit [...]

      I wasn't entirely satisfied with this one. While I did find Elizabeth's story in here interesting and poignant, the rest of the novel just didn't quite work right. I didn't feel much for Susan, and I found the restoration of John Murrey Eden to be a bit too much. Fans of the series should find this one alright, as it does bring some resolution for some of the characters. Just barely four stars.For the longer review, please go here:epinions/review/Marily

      This book came in a box of ramdom historical romances that I got from e-bay. I couldn't even bring myself to read the book after just reading the back blurb. I don't want to read about a man having an affair with his mother.
