Escape To Eden: A Thrilling Must-read Book

What happens when society begins messing with DNA?  I was recently given a copy of Escape to Eden by Rachel Mcclellan to review; it is definitely a book worth reading!  My first book from 2016 to make my Can't Put Down List.

The Book:
RUN NOW! When seventeen-year-old Sage wakes up in a hospital with no memories, her only clue are the words written on her hand. With a deadly disease threatening to wipe out mankind, Sage must find out who she is and why most people would kill to get their hands on her--before it's too late. This fast-paced, futuristic thriller is a spine-tingling read!

My Review:
Some things are better left alone. When things are 'peaceful' in society- they feel almost bored and begin messing with DNA; trying to make everyone a little smarter, a little prettier. Soon that isn't enough, and it is taken further creating humans with special abilities and unique looks. But when you mess with DNA things can go horribly wrong, and now the human race is dying except for those who harvest from the originals, those whose DNA has not been altered. 

When Sage wakes up in a hospital unable to remember who she is, two words written on her fingers change everything 'run now'. With a daring escape and her memory slowly coming back, Sage encounters others willing to help, others who realize that maybe being 'normal' would really be best for society. 

This fast paced- page turning book keeps you turning the pages right from page one. I really liked the other characters brought into the book and like their level of character development. The author creates a mystical yet real world. It is an interesting look and take on what can happen when nature is messed with and also second chances. The book is definitely setting itself up for a series (the next book is coming out this spring!) I am looking forward to the other book already. This is a clean book-with no bad language, or intense graphic or sexual imagery. I definitely recommend this book. 

This is not Rachel McClellan's first book- make sure to check out her website to see all her books

  1. Emmy, this sounds like a great read! My husband and I discuss this issue quite a bit more than the normal couple I suspect. It sounds like it is right up my alley.
