This was an excellent instalment by Jack Campbell in the "Lost Stars" series. It has more action than some of the novels which is helpful and yet continues to develop the characters and plot in an intriguing manner. Loved it.

This review is from: Crystal Keepers (Hardcover)
It really is hard to put down a book in this series. Brandon Mull is an unusually creative writer with new twists and concepts just spilling out of him in an engaging manner of prose. Eminently worth reading. Just loaned it to my 16 year old nephew who is similarly so enthused.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wind In the Willows Meets Paradise Lost, March 31 2015
It is a wonderful book in which "Wind in the Willows" meets "Paradise Lost." However, Paradise Lost is the English language's epic poem written through the filter of 17th Century Protestantism but Eden Undone is written through the filter of 21st century relational theology and is quite powerfully emotive. As the plot is initially familiar, one tends to race through but then it "hits" one that an intriguing point has just been made and one should re-read the chapter which is usually a most worth-while exercise. My wife found it one of the most impacting novels she's ever read and both of us read novels constantly. So it would be a "5" out of 5 for my wife and a "4" out of "5" for the more cerebral oriented me. Eminently worth reading. Clearly Ms. Lindsay has put years of reflection into this book.

Loved the barbieco currency and double meanings on the 21st century v. 17th century views on currency, economic management, gender roles and so forth. I laughed out loud repeatedly while reading it.
