I love the way Jenny and Fly met, and how he tamed her/ she tamed him.
I also love that the hero is similar to human but not too much, and completely scared and strong.

what to say more than i want to read the next book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A well written trip to "Eden." 28 avril 2010
Par Robert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The book Eden is about a young space traveler named Jenny who ends up marooned on a strange planet called Eden, accidentally left behind by her two male shipmates. She's not alone on the planet, and along with strange and feral creatures, there's also someone else who's been marooned. He's not human, but he is dangerous. Jenny realizes her best hope for survival will be to make contact with this "alien." At first, trying to trade him some coffee for some food (she's already found and drank all his "whiskey") she forms a tentative friendship with him. Cautiously, the two try and understand each other. And little by little, while waiting for rescue by her two shipmates, Jenny finds herself falling in love with this strange alien.

The book is well written, and truly British. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as it gives the story a unique charm of its own. Just as the relationship blossoms between Jenny and "Fly" her two male, human shipmates end up crashing on the planet and are also marooned. Injured and frightened, the two men have a much harder time accepting the alien. After exploring the alien's crashed ship, it's discovered that "Fly" may have a hidden past, one that might threaten all three humans. Just when things start to seem like they will turn out well, the author takes you in a different direction. Well written, and a worthy read for both science buffs, and romance lovers alike! A very good start for a new author!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Loved it! 7 octobre 2012
Par A. Craig - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Beauty and the Beast is my absolute favorite theme in books, so this book was right up my alley. I actually read Eden a while back, but I think of it often. It was such a memorable read for me.

Other reviews recap the plot, so I'll skip that and just talk about the aspects I loved. I thought the relationship between Fly and Jen developed in a realistic and believable fashion. It was so interesting that even though Fly didn't speak English initially, his communication with Jen (via computerized translator) was more honest and real than your typical, native speaking Alpha hero. There was no game playing or useless misunderstandings because something was unspoken. Fly was very honest about why he allowed Jen to live in the beginning, and she was honest about her reactions to him.

The challenges in their relationship were real, but they overcame them together in time, developing loyalty and respect. It was great to see that happen, instead of insta-love or a matehood type of bond. It was great to see Fly's emotions emerge.

The sexual tension between Fly and Jen was so strong, thick enough to cut with a knife. A KNIFE, I tell you! At one point, I was sitting there reading, thinking "ah yeah, it's about to go down!" And "it" did, but I didn't get a chance to read it! The author included some "preliminaries" between Jen and Fly, but then basically faded to black! What a shock! My inquiring mind wanted to know what that was like, but it was not to be....sigh. A couple of well-written scenes along those lines probably would've made this a 5-star read for me. (keeping it real, lol)

I thought the book was well-written. Descriptive enough so that I could picture and experience everything. The pace of action was good and helped underscore believability as relationships evolved. I will say that there were some slips in the world-building. This was set in the 23rd century, but the binoculars they used seemed exactly like what we have now. The emergency kit in Jen's pod seemed more present day as well. Other these two items that I recall, it was futuristic.

The book has a British feel to it, but it was more refreshing than jarring. I recommend this book for sci-fi/alien romance readers. I look forward to reading more by this author.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 3.5 Stars - Good Romantic Sci-Fi 30 janvier 2012
Par Cybercliper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I love Sci-Fi with a bit of romance - especially a story with an alien/human pairing. It's even better if the alien hero is a snarly, intimidating warrior. For this story, especially the hero, think Pitch Black meets Beauty and the Beast.

The world of Eden - a newly discovered planet is vividly brought to life with color, sight and sound. I loved the plot which involves a series of events that leaves explorer/scientist Jenny stranded on Eden with Fly while her other two team members are trapped onboard ship. Fly, a large humanoid, horribly mangled and scarred, is terrifying to Jenny upon their first few encounters. Jenny has to learn to deal with surviving on a planet where even the most harmless looking organism can kill while getting along with an alien from an aggressive warrior race that views empathy or emotion as a major weakness.

Characterization is where the story lost some of its magic for me. With the exception of hero Fly, Jenny and her two team members were fairly vague. While the `voices' were clear and individual, there wasn't enough description to allow these characters to take form. Abilities and skills attributed to Jenny and her team was also lacking leaving me the impression that they weren't skilled enough to be space explorers let alone scientists. It is difficult to imagine interplanetary scientists/explorers who have little to no survival skills or military discipline, no respect for protocol or chain of command. Jenny spends her first days blubbering and hiding in her vehicle thinking of a plan to kill this giant alien but that's not plausible since this crack team went planet side without weapons.

As the plot continues Jenny gets to know Fly and they form a friendship. Fly does some "awww" worthy things wanting to please Jenny not realizing that ancient emotions previously buried by his race are coming back to life and she comes to see him as someone truly special. The rest of the team ends up on Eden where jealousies and prejudices serve to add more drama and danger to their survival. Lives are threatened, secrets are revealed, discoveries are made, accidents happen, and Jenny and Fly's relationship is put to the test. And while rescue is not likely from Fly's people, will the humans come and if so, who goes and who stays?

All in all I liked this world - especially Fly. I would be interested in revisiting Eden to see what becomes of this evolving planet and its inhabitants.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A sci-fi bodice ripper 2 avril 2010
Par chiefdalek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
`Eden' is a love story of sorts. It's also science fiction of the old fashioned, planet-hopping, bug-eyed monster variety but written with a woman's sensibilities.

On mankind's first journey to another star system, things go seriously wrong. Jenny and her two fellow astronauts land on a living planet called Eden and stumble across the remains of a crashed alien spacecraft that made a crash landing. A computer malfunction causes the Earth ship to take off without Jenny, leaving her stranded with few provisions.

As well as the hostile carnivores of the inaccurately named Eden, Jenny has to worry about the sole survivor of the crashed ship. He is a fierce warrior who, despite his obviously alien features, resembles (in Jenny's mind at least) a Native American.

At first, the alien is antagonistic towards Jenny. But it soon dawns on him that he has been lonely all these many years and she could provide the companionship he yearns for.

Jenny, in her turn, realises the alien (who she names Fly) is her only hope of survival. What follows is reminiscent of Robinson Crusoe meeting Man Friday, only Crusoe and Friday were never attracted to each other...

At heart, `Eden' is a romance with echoes of `Blue Lagoon' and any number of bodice rippers - which should please the ladies. Its science fiction elements mean there's something there for the lads as well. (And, of course, plenty of girls like sci-fi too and I suspect there's not a few blokes who can stand a bit of romance.)

It's a well-written story that maintains a good pace, has two strong central characters and keeps the reader entertained. What more can you ask for from a novel?

Recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wise makes it Believable 6 août 2012
Par Joanne Mazzotta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
"Homicidal plants" with pulsing veins, screaming trees, ice, two suns and more than an alien spacecraft on a planet named Eden. But more than that, Louise Wise proved to me that she can write an attention grabbing book without considering those who have no attraction or love for sci fi.

I don't like science fiction. So why did I want to read this book? The title and book cover got me started, then the first chapter got me on track with Jenny and Bodie who were being thrown hither and dither on a space craft and her introduction to an android named Kate who "has more brain cells than the entire population of the earth" (so say her architect Matt,) and as capricious as any woman. After that juncture, I am hooked on the story itself. I admire the author's imagination and her keen insight for human nature.
I also liked the fact that the chapters were short.

I was intrigued by the way this author tampered with my lust for mystery solving, and impressed by her ability to make me forget I was reading a book in a category I never knew I could enjoy. She managed to create a lonely, depressed alien named Fly whose observations revealed a more evolved race of humans that triggered fractured memories of his earth lessons as he hid in places where he wouldn't be seen.

The struggle to survive permeates the story and stimulates a reader's want for answers which kept me reading until the surprise met the end. Louise Wise presents an assortment of talents as a writer who knows how to hold your attention. Visit Eden and find out why I give this book 5 stars.
