Book Description

End of summer sale! After Eden is only $0.99 for the next few days.

Devi knows she shouldn't trust the new employee at her favorite used bookstore. Sure, he's funny, smart and hands down the sexiest guy she's ever met, but something dark lurks behind his unassuming smile and sinful green eyes.

Still, a girl can't always afford to be picky. When an angel abducts your twin brother it should come as no surprise that the one person who can help you get him back is a demon--and only if you're willing to pay his price.

Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Length: 87,000 words or approx. 348 pages


Excerpt:

"You will do anything I ask," I whispered. The words hung in the air, a mantra spoken to the dark. His eyes lost focus and glowed softly as they narrowed in on my lips.

"Maybe this kind of devotion is sinful," I continued. "Perhaps it was even the origin of sin. But you and I are already damned."

He blinked, and the corners of his eyes began to glisten. Tears, I realized. They took on an emerald sheen from the heated look he gave me. I wiped his cheeks with my hands, drying those tears--erasing them. "Why are you the one crying now?"

"I just, I never thought..." He ran a finger up the side of my neck and brushed a strand of hair behind my ear. My body tightened. "Will you let me?"

Before I could tell him how stupid he was being, he crashed his mouth into mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dark and beautiful tale!! June 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After Eden is the first book in the Fallen Angels series, and a book I couldn't put down once I started. Angels, demons, devils, bad boys, tragedy and loss. There was a little bit of everything in this book and it was gripping. Devi has lived most of her life in a state of sadness, feeling the loss of her brother each and every day. She feels guilty for that day and for the tragedy that followed his abduction and she has lived with that for every moment since. When she meets Oz, some of the questions she has had for her entire life are answered, and even more questions arise. She is soon dropped into the middle of a reality that she didn't even know existed and her life changes irrevocably.

This is definately a character-driven story and they are very relatable characters, despite the majority of them being devils, demons and angels. Oz, while being both a demon and a bit of a bad boy, was a very likeable character. You just couldn't help but like him and feel for him. His struggle between his love for God's creation and for God himself was understandable and you could feel his angst. Even Forneus, a devil, had his moments of humanity and you almost felt for him as well. Although definately Devi's enemy in the story, Onoskelis (another demon) had a story that was beautiful and bittersweet in it's own way. Whether you liked them or not, the characters were very real and relatable in their own ways.

This was a very well-written book and I really enjoyed it. I found it to be very moving, even if quite dark, and very haunting. I will most definately be reading the next book in the series when it comes out.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting premise... But falls flat. May 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
***May contain spoilers***

While I really enjoyed the idea of the idea behind this story (a teenage girl trying to find her twin brother who disappeared six years earlier only to discover that her and her brothers are at the center of a battle between Heaven and Hell due to the fact that he does not possess a soul, much like angels, thereby making him an almost holy entity who is very dispassionate and who can do nothing but follow God's will and she does not possess spirit, much like demons and devils, giving her complete free will), I just found the story to be lacking (more so the middle of the story than the beginning/ end of the story, those were much better developed than the middle in my opinion). In all honesty I was just very confused as to what was actually occurring in the middle of the story, I feel like I got really sidetracked by all of the 'religious talk' (I did feel that some parts were quite preachy). That being said, I always love when an author can describe a scene, a character physically, etc. in a way that you could totally picture it in your head and Katherine does this in a way unlike any other author I have ever read before- her writing is seriously breathtaking.

I did think that a few of the characters, especially Oz and Devi, were described beautifully (seriously, not only is Oz really hot, but he is a total sweetheart- that is, when he isn't manifesting his demon self). However, I was quite confused by their thought processes. Their thoughts seemed to jump around with very little connection between them- almost in an erratic manner (one minute things were calm, collected, and really cute between them and the next minute one of them was bawling their eyes out for reasons that I couldn't phantom).

I was blown away by the first chapter of After Eden and by the second chapter I was hooked. The writing is fresh and beautifully descriptive. You are immediately sucked into Devi's world and her thoughts: a whirlwind of love and adventure amidst the battle of Heaven versus Hell.

The main character in the book, Devi, isn't the typical "troubled yet gorgeous" heroine that I have read in other YA novels. I identified with Devi's character because her feelings and emotions felt real. Devi has a beautiful human-like quality to her. She is vulnerable yet also possesses the fearlessness and great strength that comes with defending and fighting for the ones you love.

After Eden is a story full of passion, adventure, and great humor. The passion between Devi and her steamy love interest Oz is sexy and their connection is undeniable. Devi's adventures start when she begins the search for her lost twin brother. Devi's search is helped and complicated by the one's she meets, and those she cannot rid herself of. At times insightful but more often horrifying, Devi finds herself in the middle of the battle between good versus evil. Yet, in the end, Devi is neither angel nor demon and finds herself in unmistakeably human situations that are wickedly hysterical. Pine's wit and fast-paced story line keep the laughs coming.

I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a page-turner romance filled with action, mystery, love, and lots of laughs. Katherine Pine is a truly a amazing new author and I look forward to reading her next books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good except for one MAJOR problem March 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
(cross-posted from the blog Wading Through Electronic Ink)

The Plot

When Devi was little, she loved her brother Kai more than anything in the world. Then one day the most beautiful man Devi had ever seen came and took him away. Ten years later she meets a man named Oz who may be able to tell her what happened to her brother, but she may soon wish that she had never learned the truth.

The Good

I enjoyed most of After Eden a great deal. I like angel and demon storylines, especially ones like this that blur the good-evil divide between them. The particular mythology with the distinction between devils and demons (and no, not in the D&D way) was unique and interesting.

The relationships between characters in the story were never simple, which made them feel more realistic. Devi has difficulty relating to her parents, particularly her father, after she witnesses her brother's abduction. She has a difficult time making friends, but she loves her best friend Kim, though she wishes that Kim would make better choices in her love life. Oz claims to love everything about the world, but he seems to spend most of his time alone in the used bookstore he recently acquired through unspecified means. The only person he seems to interact with is the devil Forneus, but that relationship has to be described as... Actually, I have no idea how to describe a relationship that encompasses both painful torture and repeated asking for favors. If you come up with one, let me know.

The Bad

It often seems that there are two stories going on in After Eden, one about Devi's supernatural problems and one about her ordinary life. These two stories operate in parallel, but they don't have too much to do with each other.

More About the Author

Katherine Pine is addicted to shoujo manga and black tea. Though she's only in her mid-twenties, she lives in a retirement community in the Pacific Northwest. Alright, so maybe it isn't officially a retirement community, but the age of the average person is about 62. As a result Katherine has grown accustomed to epic bingo battles and losing terribly at Bridge. When she's not writing she knits, tries to convince slugs that her compost pile is much tastier than her vegetable garden, and gets bossed around by her cats.
