I haven't read any other books by Rhenna Morgan, so it took a bit to fully delve into the world she created in Waking Eden. Once I did though, I was very intrigued by the many layers of mystery in the story, and I was pleasantly surprised by the relationship between the hero and heroine. They grew individually and as a couple, which made the story believable and genuine.
Trinity Blair has rarely known the touch of another person. Ever since she was young, the touch of another would mean she could read their thoughts and memories. She always avoided physical contact, until she ran into Ramsay Shantos at a club with her friends. She can't read him, and that is a little scary. Ramsay is on edge due to a prophecy when he meets Trinity. When he sees the pendant she wears around her neck, and realizes it's the same symbol mentioned in the prophecy, he is desperate to learn more about her. Not to mention that he is very attracted to her, and he hasn't felt so strongly about a woman before.
The world in this book was built very well, so that even though I struggled a bit due to not reading the earlier books, I was able to get a clear picture of things. There are two supernatural beings - the Myren and the Spiritu. The Myren live in Eden, a world connected to our own but separate. The Spiritu act as guardian angels of a sort, where each person has both a light and a dark Spiritu to guide them through life. Our hero is Myren. Our heroine is...well, you'll just have to read and find out.
Great story! Ended in such a way that hints at a future book, which I look forward to reading.
