Eden Thrillers Reviews

Reviews of Treasure of Eden

A hallmark of Linnea books is their highly compacted timeline, which propels the story forward at a breakneck pace. This is a thriller for the thinking mind; it raises fascinating questions regarding faith, politics and the monetary system. The heroine's amazing voyage of discovery has taken her to a fantastic world, but it also reinforces the need to fight for the survival of our species and planet. Awesome!
—Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times Book Reviews

"The latest action packed Eden thriller (see CHASING EDEN and BEYOND EDEN) is a terrific tale that combines biblical references with modern day intrigue. The story line grips the audience from the onset as McMillan’s plans are revealed to the reader and never slows down as an incredible amount of escapades occur in an extremely short time span. Jaime is a fabulous protagonist holding the plot together as S.L. Linnea puts her through enough adventures to turn Job into a doubter. This is a superb entry in a fascinating saga.”
—Harriet Klausner, Mystery Gazette

Reviews of Beyond Eden

Army chaplain Jaime Richards once again balances faith with action-oriented purpose in this sequel to Chasing Eden, which picks up three years after the previous title left off. ...Linnea keeps the pressure on and the events racing. She does nail-biting extremely well.
Romantic Times Book Reviews

“This exciting sequel packs plenty of global action in a short time frame yet contains an interesting societal issue... The story line is fast-paced while the heroine is a likeable protagonist who struggles with the questions of her faith when she returns to the mortal realm of pain and suffering while immortality is a Garden away. S.L. Linnea provides a deep thought provoking thriller.
—Harriet Klausner, mega reviewer

"I was in a very down place...work and personal events taking a hold of me from the Dark side. This book, the way it addressed life and death and higher powers, was just what I needed to hear. 'Be slow to anger'. One person's death can have a positive effect on many lives. ...Our purpose here is to live. This book brought me back into the Light."
