Eden at the Edge of Midnight by John Kerry Review

Publication Date: October 19, 2012
Publisher: EATEOM Publishing Ltd
Format: E-book
Page Count: 348 pages
Source: Author
Series: The Vara Volumes #1

The Vara of Yima, the original Garden of Eden, sealed from the rest of the world and populated with the fittest of men and women. A secret paradise that 150 years ago became ravaged by smog that choked out the skies.

Now the Vara exists in a permanent state of darkness and its people need a champion, a chosen one to save them from the smog that threatens to fill the realm and poison its inhabitants.

That’s what they needed. They got Sammy Ellis instead. She isn’t important enough for her dad to stick around for, never mind saving a realm or junk like that. Her only responsibility was to help the chosen one open the gateway into the Vara, but not only has she entered the realm in their place, she’s also locked them out in the process.

Stuck in a twilight land of giant mushrooms, pursued by dark forces and still in her pyjamas, being unimportant back in the real world is starting to seem way more attractive.


The author reached out to me after I entered a giveaway for this book and I am really glad he did! It takes time to actually get into this book but after a couple of chapters, it starts to get really interesting and unwinds to be a great book.

Intriguing and hilarious characters and monsters, this will keep you wanting more. The world John Kerry build is very creative and it makes me very jealous of Sammy -the main character- who gets suddenly involved with a land of giant mushrooms and dark forces.
