Mia Sheridan - Finding Eden

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Susan & Stacey

Finding Eden is the continuation, and conclusion, to Becoming Calder.

When the world as you know it has ended, when all that you love has been washed away, where do you find strength? 

When the new world you've stepped into is as isolating as the last, when your heart is broken, and your future is unclear, where do you find hope? 

Finding Eden is a story of strength, discovery, forgiveness, and undying love. It is about believing in your destiny and following the path that leads to peace.

THIS IS THE SECOND PART, AND CONCLUSION, IN A TWO-PART SIGN OF LOVE SERIES INSPIRED BY AQUARIUS (BECOMING CALDER SHOULD BE READ FIRST). New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and graphic sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

The continuing story of Calder and Eden is a brilliant one. Seeing how the pair struggled in the 'real world' without one another was heartbreaking. But fate brings them together and they face their challenges ahead. Learning about one another's pasts, dealing with the terror they had been through and learning more about the man called 'Hector'.  

"Because people defined by bitterness end up destroying themselves."

Despite all their hardships and the number of obstacles put in their way they survive and adjust to life outside Arcadia.  

"And I thought to myself, even though life could be horrifying and earth-shattering, terrible and tragic, it was also filled with moments of breathtaking beauty.  And sometimes you just had to laugh."

Another truly wonderful book from Mia Sheridan.  In complete awe of her talent and can't give this any less than 5 stars.  In fact it just doesn't seem enough. 

Final favourite excerpt:

"... Life is a mess sometimes, but the way I see it, you're the beauty that came from the mess."

After I had read Becoming Calder I started reading Finding Eden straight away but then a couple of BETA's popped up so I had to stop part way through, though I was dying to find out what became of the couple. I mentioned in my review of Calder that it took me a while to get in to, but Eden had me hooked from the get go. 

My heart was breaking for them until a turn of fate brought them back together - my insides were jumping for joy as I just didn't see how they could live without each other! Once again the passion and emotion between Calder and Eden was palpable.

"It was almost as if we both wanted to open each other's skin and crawl inside, bury ourselves so deeply that it would be impossible to ever separate us again."

They were obviously both still recovering from such a huge change in their lives that Eden especially felt she needed to go on a journey of discovery in order to finally close that chapter of their lives.

I have to say I didn't see coming what the couple eventually found out so the suspense kept me hanging on all the way to the end and yet again with one of Mia's books, I went through a flurry of emotions with exclaiming out loud and the company I was keeping wondering what was the matter!

A perfect ending and I have to give this one five stars.
