Escape From Eden Review

From Good Reads:
Since the age of ten, Mia has lived under the iron fist of the fundamentalist preacher who lured her mother away to join his fanatical family of followers. In Edenton, a supposed “Garden of Eden” deep in the South American jungle, everyone follows the Reverend’s strict but arbitrary rules—even the mandate of whom they can marry. Now sixteen, Mia dreams of slipping away from the armed guards who keep the faithful in, and the curious out. When the rebellious and sexy Gabriel, a new boy, arrives with his family, Mia sees a chance to escape. 

But the scandalous secrets the two discover beyond the compound’s fa├žade are more shocking than anything they ever imagined. While Gabriel has his own terrible secrets, he and Mia bond together, more than friends and freedom fighters. But is there time to think of each other as they race to stop the Reverend’s paranoid plan to free his flock from the corrupt world? Can two teenagers crush a criminal mastermind? And who will die in the fight to save the ones they love from a madman who’s only concerned about his own secrets?

For almost as long as she can remember Mia has lived in Edenton with her mother and her brother Max. Edenton is supposed to be a utopia... a place where everyone can live in peace and tranquility. But Mia knows that something isn't right.... as the death toll rises will she be able to save her Mom and Max...and will edge be able to keep her heart with Gabriel....

This wasn't my favorite book. It went a little slow for me. The plot seened predictable and even the nasty characters seemed a little forced. When I read the synopsis of this book, I expected an adventure...and all I got was a bloody free f or all.....
