Review of Eternal Eden by Nicole Williams


2 stars

A poor attempt at copying Twilight’s success.

The copious amounts of reviews that state that this book is a copy of Twilight are 100% correct. Get away! Get away quickly!

In some respects it is better (no Bella), and others it is worse. The rubbish that spewed forth out of William’s mouth had me vomiting a little in my mouth. The similar, yet slightly more idiotic drivel that came out of Bryn’s mouth had me rolling my eyes so much at her idiocy I swear the people around me as I was reading thought I was going to have an epileptic fit.

The insanely short time (a couple of days) that passed between meeting and professing undying and eternal love was whirlwind, full of annoying fights, unrealistic reactions and surprise, surprise everyone fawning over our damsel in distress.

Now, there were actually some interesting differences between Eternal Eden and Twilight. I actually quite liked the potential intricacies of the opposing clans/committees/governments. The potential to delve in there and actually give this story a backbone however, was sadly missed.

The writing was juvenile at best and the manuscript was rife with typos, grammatical and spelling errors. This is book 1 of a trilogy that I will not be continuing with.

  1. Sounds quite puky! Is it a self-pub?

    • Yep! Though scarily enough her new series just got picked up by Harper Collins! I am hoping it is better than this book, probably is if it has that much pull.

      • Oh my – next thing it’ll be on the NY Times best seller list! 😀

        Great review btw 😉

        • You know, you could be right. It seems to be getting a lot of publicity. In three months the first in the series has over 5,500 ratings, an average of 4.16 stars.

          I am not sure if this one is also hitching a ride on Twilights coat tails, but if I ever do read it, it won’t be for a while.

          And thanks about the review… I thought the .gifs worked in well 🙂
