    The author headlines it as a Cinderella retelling but, I found it like a mix of a lot of classic fairy tales and the style is similar in the manner of Brother s Grimm tales I m a visual artist and I found myself mentally illustrating all the beautiful settings scenes Goode described.One of my favorite aspects of the tale was how it intersects Eden s struggles with his sexuality with his powers, which I see as a well fitting juxtaposition in relaying the complexities of both.I don t want to sp The author headlines it as a Cinderella retelling but, I found it like a mix of a lot of classic fairy tales and the style is similar in the manner of Brother s Grimm tales I m a visual artist and I found myself mentally illustrating all the beautiful settings scenes Goode described.One of my favorite aspects of the tale was how it intersects Eden s struggles with his sexuality with his powers, which I see as a well fitting juxtaposition in relaying the complexities of both.I don t want to spoil it but, I sincerely recommend this story to any and all looking for a fresh take on fantasy

    I m giving THE SECRETS OF EDEN 4.5 stars out of 5.As a reader This is a SOLID 5 star story It is such a uniquely voiced retelling of Cinderella It has brilliant LGBTQIA rep, a wonderful love story, action, magic and fun dialogue It s warmhearted, with just a touch of malevolence Due to a recent move and some oral surgery it took me some extended time to finish this amazing novel, but that is NO reflection on the book itself It was all I could think about in my down time and I m so glad I f I m giving THE SECRETS OF EDEN 4.5 stars out of 5.As a reader This is a SOLID 5 star story It is such a uniquely voiced retelling of Cinderella It has brilliant LGBTQIA rep, a wonderful love story, action, magic and fun dialogue It s warmhearted, with just a touch of malevolence Due to a recent move and some oral surgery it took me some extended time to finish this amazing novel, but that is NO reflection on the book itself It was all I could think about in my down time and I m so glad I finally had the chance to see how it ends The prolonged suspense was killing me Though it may have made me enjoy it evenAs a writer I gave this 4 stars Now, I have a rule of thumb for independently published works I do NOT hold them to the same fire I hold big 5 and mass produced books to Though there were some grammar edit errors, there was nothing that pulled me out of the novel I m actually ecstatic that this was independently published as the brilliant concept of a POC queer retelling of Cinderella like this would have been watered down and butchered by an agented, published atmosphere This is a work of fiction that this industry needed, as far as I m concerned My only real knock making it 4 stars is the format It was 1st person POV for most of the novel, but it slipped into dual POV toward the end In my opinion, I would have loved to have seen MORE dual POV from beginning to end Jared is such a typical not typical leading alpha male character that I would have killed forof his perspective And I wouldn t have changed a single thing about Eden He s perfect That s it I loved this novel and will recommend it to just about EVERYONE EVERYWHERE because it s beautiful, fun and desperately needed in the year 2017.P.S My favorite character, by the way, was the Queen But I have a thing for, well, no spoilers.K

    To be honest, I almost didn t finish this book If I could rate the plot and message alone, it would be five stars The writing, especially towards the end, feels like there was no editing whatsoever The characters were pretty one dimensional, until maybe the penultimate chapter when the villain is revealed Even after the ending, I could barely remember anything about the characters besides how the protagonist felt about them But the ending was overall boring and felt extremely rushed This b To be honest, I almost didn t finish this book If I could rate the plot and message alone, it would be five stars The writing, especially towards the end, feels like there was no editing whatsoever The characters were pretty one dimensional, until maybe the penultimate chapter when the villain is revealed Even after the ending, I could barely remember anything about the characters besides how the protagonist felt about them But the ending was overall boring and felt extremely rushed This book feels like a really, really rough first draft I was disappointed because the story is so good and had such a beautiful message, but the redeeming qualities of this book are overshadowed by the terrible writing The setting and magic of the book are really interesting, especially asbackstory is introduced Unfortunately the only interesting scenes, such as the chapters about Eden s mother s journal, were almost unreadable There is another scene where Eden finds magic books that correlate to different powers and I swear I had to take breaks because the writing was infuriating The phrase magic books was used so many times in one paragraph that I started playing a drinking game for every time I saw these words and my beer was gone in less than two pages The author isn t even bad, but it truly feels like they wrote it and never looked at it again and then published it I can t express how annoying it was to finish this book I was literally crossing words out with pencil and writing angry comments in the margins Please please please Brandon Goode, hire an editor And if an editor did in fact work on this book, fire them immediately
