Eden at the Edge of Midnight is an adventure storey nearly a teen daughter named Sammy who desperately wants to hold out noticed, in addition to her inadvertent foray into the erstwhile garden of Eden, right away called Perseopia. When a mysterious old adult woman asks her to fit onto a bracelet she claims is magic, Sammy thinks she's weird but doesn't believe her. At first.

When Sammy is transported to Perseopia, she meets amongst danger almost at every turn. But a guide a opportunity encounter amongst a dinosaur-like beast named Louis in addition to the human being who lives inwards a household on his back, Mehrak, seems to hold out her entirely hope. Can Sammy come inwards dorsum domicile to what Mehrak keeps calling the Mother World? Or volition she hold out stuck inwards Perseopia forever? And is she actually the chosen ane that the old adult woman spoke of? Or only unopen to other teenager?

I had a slap-up fourth dimension reading this book, non entirely for the storey but for Sammy's personality. She reminds me in addition to thence much of myself, in addition to she's completely geeky for scientific discipline fiction in addition to movies in addition to video games. The popular civilization references spattered throughout the mass were welcome reminders that at that topographic point is unopen to other basis to which Sammy belongs, in addition to that she is a normal teenager who only happens to hateful something to someone.

Mehrak's historic menses is never made clear, nor is Hami's, the mage who inserts himself into the journey. But they must stimulate got been unopen plenty inwards historic menses to Sammy for her to hold out "interested" inwards both of them. It's never actually clear only how much she feels for them, although that osculate at the destination (I'm non proverb amongst whom ;)) was pretty nifty. Mehrak is married, but his married adult woman was taken past times crabmen in addition to he's on the hunt for her. Hami is convinced Sammy is the chosen child, but his plotting takes in addition to thence many twists in addition to turns it's e'er difficult to tell whether he genuinely cares for her or only wants to piece of employment her to hand his ain ends.

The destination of the mass sets it upward nicely for mass 2, in addition to I wonder what component Sammy volition play inwards the side past times side installment. It looks similar the magi are inwards danger in addition to peradventure Sammy volition hold out able to help.

Highly recommended for people who dearest humour in addition to suspense, amongst a teen heroine who isn't annoying (for once), in addition to is equally big a geek equally nosotros fantasy readers tend to hold out ;)
