Re-Release date: October 22nd 2013
Publisher: Anchor Group Publishing
Average Rating: 4.30

It has been four years.

Four years since the day the Catchers found her family.

Four years since she escaped capture.

And four years since the day her mother locked her and Will, a boy she hardly knew, in an attic, 'for their own protection'. 

Now, Eden White is fifteen, and sick of being a prisoner of parents who all but abandoned her. It was as simple as one walk down a beautiful, foggy beach, but it ended with Eden and Will face to face with Catchers - and this time, there is no escape.

When Eden wakes, she finds herself on an island, surrounded by hundreds of stolen children. Enrolled in the island school, Jordan Hall, Eden quickly learns that the island is not what it seems.

And, in the woods surrounding the school, she discovers a wild, beautiful magic inside of herself - one she has no idea how to control. With three unlikely new friends, Eden begins to realize that the headmistress is hiding much more than the stolen children - and what they learn in the laboratories below the school could cost Eden her life.

About the Author


Kate is an artist, an animation student, a black belt in karate and now, an author. She didn't discover writing until mid-high school, when she began writing an (unintentionally) hilarious novel involving a teenage girl and a magic necklace. Her current novel series, The Legend of Eden, began as a story of Arthurian magic, but quickly transformed into something much different.

Kate currently lives in Ontario, Canada, in a zoo of a house. When she isn't writing, she's drawing, cooking, or browsing the Internet for new music.

Garden of Eden

My thoughts:

The first thing that caught my attention was the cover to the book. It's gorgeous!
I thought the synopsis sounded intriguing & I wanted to know who these catchers were and what they were up to. 
The storyline in general was good and enjoyable.
The writing was simple and descriptive.
It's written in first person which I always like in a novel. The chapters also have a short to decent length.
I believed the characters were written well.
I thought the beginning of the book was good. It had a great start. I was introduced to the characters and what had happened.
The ending to the book has me wanting to read the sequel to see what the council are up to!
Overall it was an OK read and that's why I gave it three stars.
I recommend if you are into the paranormal/fantasy genre.


Thank you so much to Itching For Books for letting me host this blog tour =)
