The betrayal that tore a family apart. Two brothers bent on destroying the other. A whole world on the brink of war.
Aiden has been through his second battle in the magical world of Eden. The victory is short lived and Aiden is sent racing toward his friends in the Capital. After being back in Eden with the Riders, he is eager to reunite with Wolf, Elisa and Logan, although he doesn’t realize just what he’s returning to. Surprises await him when he arrives in the Capital; his close-knit group of friends is slowly falling apart. On top of it all, another battle is just around the corner, one that will change everything.
Rain has made her choice, and now she is in some unknown fortress with the feared sorcerer, Aziz. She wants nothing more but to please him, but being his Queen isn’t as easy as she thought. While trying to learn sorcery, and dealing with Aziz’s advances, Rain is finding her new life a bit overwhelming. Just when she thought it couldn’t get worse, she discovers a secret of Aziz’s, and it is nothing she could have expected.
Rose has supported Callum throughout their journey, but now that the final battle is just around the corner she is faced with a hard reality. Everything she has gained with him could be taken away. Is she willing to live the rest of her life without him? Can she just stand by while he destroys everything, including himself? Will he ever be able to find peace? Will she?
In the third installment of the Eden Series fates will be decided, and the battle between brothers that has been a decade in the making will finally come to an end. Only one of them can be High King.
The battle starts now.

Alana Rock – Dark Obsession Chronicles
“It’s not often that you want more than to enjoy a book but to crawl in the page and experience it. This is it. The world building is fantastic. The cast is amazing. I’m surely in love with each of the guys in the book…This is just a full body cast. I haven’t met many authors who could write so many characters and you don’t feel cheated that you didn’t get enough of your favorite…The writing is phenomenal and spectacular world building and cast. You won’t be disappointed by this one. Those that love Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, and Divergent will surely enjoy this series.”

Her debut novel, Eden, was the first book in a series of four, released in September of 2011. The second book, Eden-West, was released in July of 2012, and the third book, Eden-South was released in March of 2013.

She now resides in the small town in Ontario in her old, possibly haunted, century home.
The Eden Series
Trapped within the cruel world of hormones and bullies, fifteen-year-old Aiden is convinced life has more to offer him. His instincts are proven correct on the night he is awakened by a voice calling to him from outside his window. As he sleepily peers into his yard, his eyes slowly focus on a woman who says she is there to take him to Eden. Aiden is about to fulfill the life purpose he never knew he had.
It is in Eden, a land on the brink of war, where Aiden will finally learn to trust himself and those around him. Accompanied by Wolf, his sidekick Logan, and the beautiful archer, Elisa, Aiden is soon thrust into a battle to save Eden. Meanwhile Elisa, the only girl in the King’s Army, is in the midst of her own struggles. Betrothed to a man she has no intention of marrying, Elisa is caught between the need to prove herself and her desire for true happiness. And now that she has met Aiden, she is more confused than ever.
In this action-packed fantasy tale, romance, adventure, and intrigue surround Aiden as he learns just what he is capable of when he discovers confidence and courage.
Months after his initial journey to Eden, Aiden is learning to cope with his own transformation. His social status has changed, his friendship with his best friend Ethan is in jeopardy because of it, and worst of all, he has heard absolutely nothing from his new friends in Eden. What has become of the world he fell in love with? Are his friends safe? Is the war over? With no answers, and no hope for contact, Aiden decides to focus on his life in his world.
Just as he makes this decision, he encounters a familiar bright light and thinks he knows exactly what it means. Except the light isn’t at all what he expects and neither is the person behind it. When Aiden returns to Eden, it is to a whole new part of that special world, and a whole new set of adventures.
Weeks after Aiden was returned to his own world, Elisa is sent to Nysa, the revered Southern city, to retrieve the one thing she’d rather avoid – Wolf. Captain Turk instructed her to get in and get out – but that is easier said than done. When she finds her missing friend, she also stumbles upon a great deal of trouble. This trouble goes by one name – Markus, the leader of the Sun People.
Follow all your favorite characters as they ready themselves for battle and fight for a world threatened to be destroyed.
Let me start by screaming a little because my book boyfriend is HEEEEEERE!!!!!! ok enough now lol!!
Hello Logan, Thanks so much for being here.
*smiles* Thanks for having me *winks*
*sighs very loudly* I really appreciate you stopping by for me to
interrogate, I mean interview you. Tell me a little something about yourself…
I like long walks on the beach…*laughs* just kidding. I’m from a small village north of Capital City called Redrock Forks. I came to the Capital when I was fifteen like most boys who want to join the King’s army. The rest is, as they say, history!
I look forward to more of the future *winks* Tell me how you feel about being a warrior…
Being a warrior is my life. I don’t know what I’d be if I hadn’t joined the army. I would never have met Wolf or any of my other friends, so I’m thankful that my parents supported my choice. Plus, if I hadn’t decided to be a warrior, who else would have been as kickass as me?!
Me, but that’s beside the point, I love looking at your a… oh too much, ok, then let Me ask…. What’s the first thing that pops into your head when I say Aiden’s name to you?
Black eye *laughs* I was the first one to ever train with him, and he had a nice shiner after to prove it. Aiden is one of those guys that just keeps surprising me. I’ve never seen anyone improve in their skills like Aiden’s done.
Aiden is quite an impressive person. How about Wolf? I know he’s your BFF but anything you could maybe tell us that’s a little secret?
*laughs and shakes his head* I feel like Wolf would tell you himself if you asked him. There’s not much of a filter on that guy’s mouth. Wolf is more than a best friend to me, he’s my brother. I would die for that guy if I had to. No matter how he lets others perceive him, Wolf is the most honorable, trustworthy guy you’ll ever meet. Don’t let his inflated ego fool you.
Well, he had trouble with Elisa, but I definitely would want him as a friend and an ally… hmmmm, maybe a future brother in law Are you happy with how things are turning out?
I’ll be happier when this war is over!
Me too!!! You stress me! Do you regret anything?
I regret not seeing my parents one last time. My village was destroyed by the north. I think that will be my biggest regret for the rest of my life.
I’m so sorry, and that never makes anyone feel better, but I’m still sorry. Tell me something that most don’t know about you?
I can sing. Wolf will tell you differently, but don’t listen to him. My mother always said I had a natural talent.
Sweet baby Jesus, shall we get married now!? you could just sing If you could have one wish with no restrictions, what would it be?
That you and I get out of here and go somewhere private *winks*
You already know That’s a given, you cheated!!! but wait, we gotta shoo everyone out! Tell me something you’d like to do, but don’t think would ever happen in life?
I’d like to see where Aiden is from, but Diana has told me it’s not possible. I’ve asked her a lot, but she keeps saying the same answer. *sighs*
I’ll figure out how to get you here So, do you think it’s time we got together?
I LOVE you’re enthusiasm!! I think that lovely Ms. Stalder is gunna gimme that wish soon Anything you have to say about this!
I’m ready when you are, sweetheart.
A little of this and that…
Boxers or Briefs? LOL yep, right to that one
*drools*Coffee or tea?
Tea. What the Gods is coffee?
Oh honey I’ll make you coffee, with beignets You’ll never want anything else! Coke, sprite, dr. pepper, other?
I’m so gunna culture shock you hehehehe Mountains or beach?
Beach. I get cranky when I’m cold.
Winter or summer?
Summer for sure.
Vampire or werewolf? LOL or maybe Zombies? I have a feeling you’ll be biased here
None of the above! I’ve had enough strange creatures to last me a lifetime.
Cold or hot?
Hot, of course. *winks*
You should have said cold so I can warm you up! Favorite color?
My eye color *bats eyelashes*. Night or day?
Night. It’s way more fun.
Moonlight or sunlight?
Steak, seafood, burger, or pizza?
Steak. I love my red meat.
*sighs* Logan had to run back, so I’ll patiently wait for him
Alright, it’s finally time for my review….
Ms J, if I didn’t love you tremendously I might shake you painfully! LAWD!!! This is the most emotional book EVER!!! I never thought I could become so obsessed with characters in a book, but trust me, I would so stalk each of them- and then I’d probably be beheaded for some kind of treason. I am 100%, utterly, completely, irrevocably IN LOVE with this series! Plus my book boyfriend is hilarious if not promiscuous and drunk a lot hahahaha I will not try really hard to not spoil anything for anyone.
So, Aiden is back, I absolutely love him. If I weren’t on a mission to snag Logan I would be very team Aiden. His fight skills as well as maturity level are growing. And how about him being down right good. He’s not so flawed or tragic, he’s just a good person and a wonderfully constructed character. Now I know everyone is team Wolf- except me- and I actually very much like Team Wolf, I even found myself cheering for him and saying a little prayer for him to catch a break. He definitely had some excellent character growth on this run. I feel like I’m finally getting to know the real Wolf. My spoiler comment-HIGH FIVE! I am still loving Moose as well. As Wolf’s brother, you expect him to be… More Wolf-ish LOL, but he’s a lovely amount of artist and fun haver. He’s also an excellent friend to Aiden as well as a loyal fighter. My boyfriend is last, goodness he is hilarious! I’ve actually also learned that he can be a good friend, even if he disagrees. He still stands by Elisa when she makes that crazy decision with Markus. He also knows how to lighten the mood in any situation.
Elisa has me both baffled but also proud of her. She made some crazy decisions but was trying to do the right thing. She’s fiercely glad Aiden is alive and back, she is my perfect heroine! I don’t think there’s a cooler chick out there! And Rose and Lily are completely excellent ladies to add to the mix! I love Rose for who she is and what she stands for! Lily is utterly fantastic! Her character set up and building is probably my favorite! She absolutely makes me smile at all times! I totally hope it works out for her and “him”- you have to read to know! Rain has me so damn mad, and I actually hope she gets what’s coming, but then I feel bad for her sometimes because she has no idea what’s she’s in for! Ugh!!! Elex is definitely going to be the mystery bad boy we all want to fix! I can tell with his appearances was gunna captivate me in the next book! And I cannot wait to see what will happen now with King Jameson and Callum!! Oh and with King J and Diana!!
I will say this, trying for no spoilers- YAY!!!! NOOOO!!!! OMG!!!! Bleep bleep bleep bleep!!!! Ms J, your cliff hangers are so well played but damn you!! I just… I need… I mean come on!!! Ok, spoiler moments over hahahaha ok so let me think… If I could pick one word for Ms J’s writing, I couldn’t, but these pop in my head simutaneously- PHENOMENAL, MAGNIFICENT, SPECTACULAR! It’s such a ridiculous amount of goodness that comes from the kid! I will say I am so glad she writes what I love because it would be a complete shame to miss out on this piece of art! I am going to go with one of my rare 6 AWE INSPIRING, AMAZING PAWS!!!
So now go read it- enter the giveaway, and make sure you check out all the other spots! Happy reading everyone and later gators!!
