About the Author

My life certainly didn't pan out the way I had expected. I fought for my life and nearly died from cancer at the age of 23. From that point forward, everything changed. However, change is like a glacier and it moves at it's own plodding pace. My experience with cancer taught me a valuable lesson - don't allow life to just "happen" around you. Make changes, take risks and be true to your own heart. After 11 years, I'm finally acting upon those lessons learned. I left a comfy career in my hometown to travel the world as an enterprise consultant. My wife and I lived in Vietnam for a month while we adopted our son. And I'm now listening to that ever-present voice telling me I'm an artist. Words and stories are my craft, and I hope you find some joy and surprises in my fiction. I'll leave you with perhaps my all-time favorite quote that personifies how I feel when I write: "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song." -Maya Angelou, Poet Please visit me at my blog: http://matthewcplourde.wordpress.com/

Matthew Plourde has to be one of the best up and coming writers I've read in quite a while. I never got around to writing a review of Eden, so I will combine my comments on both Eden and Babylon here. The story line of the series is truly refreshing in the sense that it does not follow any sort of formula like many modern day authors. The protagonist and other characters are well developed and realistic. The plot is enticing and structured in a way that engages the reader on multiple levels.

I have read quite a few books in this genre (post apacolyptic fiction) and both Eden and Babylon are unique in the fact that the author skillfully combines theology and science fiction in a story that people can actually relate to. Too often we see novels that tell of the end of the world as we know it by imparting to the reader endless details of death and destruction, blood and gore, usually as some sort of quasi-prophetic warning of things to come. This isn't that story. The books by no means avoid violence and destruction, but they don't beat you over the head with it, the violent and gory scenes compliment the interaction between characters and emphasize the situations in a way that is tasteful yet entertaining; this is a difficult thing for writers to do. This can also be said of the religious aspects of the novels. Indeed there are religious undertones in this series, but they are by no means self righteous or overbearing. Theology seems to play a role in the story instead of being the point of it. While I'm on the topic of religion, I should compliment the author on his knowledge of scripture, in a many cases I have read stories in this genre wherein authors pontificate on topics of which they posess limited knowledge. Thanks for doing the research!

I loved the first book. This one did not disappoint either. It wrapped up the story nicely but left it open for the third book.

It's hard to be overly critical about this book because it is clearly not based off of any religious theory I've encountered before, but it was a good story nevertheless. Personally, I enjoyed the read about as much as I enjoyed the first one. I feel as though it was written much better than the "Divergent type" series and the author uses clear, thoughtful language. I may not agree with much of the religious overtones, but it's a fun story enjoyed I look forward to reading Babylon.

Side note - really give the book a shot. If you enjoy reading just to read (I'd certainly rather read this than John Stuart Mill.. poly sci student problems) you will enjoy this. I hate when people give horrible reviews and the reviews for this book have been rather unkind to its quality. Matthew Plourde definitely spent the time to edit and create a fast-paced story, don't miss out!

I dislike a required amount of words for a review, nor am I particularly descriptive when giving a synopsis of a book. I just wanted the author and potential readers to know I loved this book. It is post apocalyptic/sci fi, those who are worried about any religious connotations, don't worry, it is not a Christian book. It does make the reader think. I read both books in a weekend. I miss Lex already and hope the 3rd book is released soon. Thank you : )

I found this series really enjoyable, and quite different from what I was expecting. There were a lot of twists and turns that caught me unprepared, and it just didnt have that happy ever after feel about it. I like his books

This book is the 2nd in Matt's series, Eden Saga. From the moment I started reading, I was transported into the world of Alexandra and her struggles both internal and external. This was one of those books that I couldn't put down. A great follow up to Eden and I anxiously await Brasilia, the next book in this series.

I fell in love with Eden. I promised I would pace myself when it came to Babylon, because I wanted to kick myself for reading Eden so quickly..but I failed. Now I impatiently wait for Brasilia. Matthew C. Plourde is making it very difficult for me to accept reality after reading his books. Now stop reading the reviews and go download them already! ~:D
