Blog Tour: Escape to Eden by Rachel McClellan

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!

Rachel McClellan was born and raised in Idaho, a place secretly known for its supernatural creatures. When she's not in her writing lair, she's partying with her husband and four crazy, yet lovable, children. Rachel's love for storytelling began as a child when the moon first possessed the night. For when the lights went out, her imagination painted a whole new world. And what a scary world it was... 


Andrea's Review:

Escape to Eden caught my attention right from the beginning of the story and held it throughout. Sage's amnesia combined with her skills to escape from her captors was very intriguing. Her journey to find out who she was, and then to help her family and those around her made for an intense story.

I'm not typically a sci-fi fan, but the messing with DNA that changed society into so many crazy beings was really interesting. The characters were well developed, and the group that worked together had such a great dynamic. Their personalities varied immensely, but each member played an important role. I was definitely invested in the well-being of each of them.

The only thing that I didn't really like about the book was the ending. It was done well, but I wanted more. As it was, it set things up well for another book. I'm not sure what the author and publisher have in mind, but hopefully another book that continues Sage's journey will be coming soon.

If you are a fan of YA dystopian novels, I'd recommend Escape to Eden. Rachel McClellan is a talented author, and I'd definitely read more of her work.

As far as content there is some swearing and violence.

Rorie's Review:

Please tell me there will be a second book, because one book was just not enough. This book had me hooked from the very first page, and kept me entranced clear til the last page. I was really sad and kind of a bit mad when it ended. Again, I really hope there is a second book coming. I need more!

The author did a great job at bringing all of the characters to life. Sage and Colt were my favorite, but Tank and Anthony were great too. I didn't feel like we got to really know Anthony all that well (ahem, in the second book, right?) and Jenna was horribly annoying but not in a "I can't stand her and want her to disappear" kind of way.

I tend to gravitate towards books that are set in a dystopian society, so this story-line was right up my alley. I also plan on reading more of the author's books, since she did such a great job with this one.
