Book Description

A young book editor stumbles up from the site of a bombing in the London subway. He accepts a woman's offer of help and a hot cup of tea. He's never heard from again... A group of boys in upstate New York goes sledding. One doesn't come home... A military convoy approaches a lone figure on a dusty road north of Baghdad. The woman is Army Chaplain Jaime Richards… and it seems she's been gone a lifetime.

After two years in paradise, Jaime has chosen to return to the "terris" world as a dual citizen, an Agent of Eden. But soon she will discover that life among mere mortals has become a living hell and that the series of mysterious kidnappings are fatefully and tragically connected. For the victims are all descendants of Eden, and they have the one thing people outside of paradise want: a way to live forever.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Army chaplain Jaime Richards once again balances faith with
action-oriented purpose in this sequel to CHASING EDEN, which picks up
three years after the previous title left of... the authors keep the
pressure on and the events racing. They do nail-biting extremely
well!"
-- RT Book Reviews
 
"This exciting sequel packs plenty of global action... the storyline is
fast-paced while the heroine is a likeable protagonist who struggles with
the questions of her faith when she returns to the mortal realm of pain
and suffering while immortality is a Garden away. Linnéa and Sherer
provide a deep, thought-provoking thriller."
-- Mystery Gazette
 
"Having not read Chasing Eden, I was concerned about 'catching up';
however, Beyond Eden is a stand-alone book... I found the writing drawing
me into the multiple worlds. The authors have written not just of Eden and
the outside world but also of the scientific experimental community... To
write such that the reader connects with the characters and feels she is
right there with them feeling woozy or chewing gum, means you have done a
superb job! On a scale of 1 to 5, I give it a 5."
--Mostly Mystery Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Great thriller with a message October 24, 2007
By Debdot
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My review is not about the story. You can read the summary above. This is about the book's impact on me.

So here I was yesterday at San Diego airport, waiting to get back home to NJ after the fires cancelled my training course. That voice inside said 'get something to read' for the 5 hour flight home. Usually I never take a book on a plane. I scanned the magazines...nothing. Scanned the books -- lots of chop 'em up horror stories, the standard 'lovers making love' books, and then this one. I read the back, got interested, and bought it.

I read it all flight. Got home at 130 AM and read to 330 AM. Slept in, got up and finished it before I went to work.

What is the message? I was in a very down place on my flight...work and personal events taking a hold of me from the Dark side. This book, the way it addressed life and death and higher powers, was just what I needed to hear. 'Be slow to anger'. One person's death can have a positive effect on many lives. Jaime's issues in her teen years over her parent's death and her plane ride with her local pastor. Our purpose here it to live. This book brought me back into the Light.

5.0 out of 5 stars deep thought provoking thriller October 13, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While serving in Iraq in 2003, Army Chaplain (Major) Jamie Richards learns that the Sword of Life was stolen from the Baghdad Museum and must be reclaimed as that biblical artifact leads to the location of the Garden of Eden (see CHASING EDEN). She remains at Eden for the next two and a half years, but must leave paradise as an "Agent of Eden" on a mission in the "Terris" world beyond.

Four abductions seemingly unconnected over ten weeks around the globe occurred from London to New York State to China and finally Virginia. To the law enforcement types of the respective areas there is no thought of a link. However each of the four and another kidnapping consist of Edenite offspring working in the world at large. Jaime is assigned to rescuing the children and uncovering who is the culprit. Yani, who enlisted her help in recovering the Sword of Life, joins her on her mission that takes them BEYOND EDEN.

This exciting sequel packs plenty of global action in a short time frame yet contains an interesting societal issue on the ethical boundaries of science that are mindful of Ayn Rand and the debate on stem cell research. The story line is fast-paced while the heroine is a likable protagonist who struggles with the questions of her faith when she returns to the mortal realm of pain and suffering while immortality is a Garden away. S.L. Linnea provides a deep thought provoking thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't stop reading! June 13, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Someone gave me CHASING EDEN saying I "had" to read it, and now the Eden Thrillers have become one of my favorite series. BEYOND EDEN had me hooked from the prologue--what could be more terrifying than a boy vanishing from a sledding party or a baby from its crib?

While CHASING EDEN follows Chaplain Jaime Richards through many places in the book of Genesis, much of BEYOND is set on the Greek island of Patmos where Revelation was written. While it's a page turner, you can also tell that the authors had a good time taking all the current thriller ingredients--newly discovered ancient manuscripts, spooky labrynths under monastaries, monks who may or may not be up to no good--and turning them on their ear.

One thing I love about the Eden books is that they look at fascinating philosophical and theological questions that motivate the various characters in their quests. I also enjoy that the answers aren't cut and dried--even Jaime has to wrestle with what she believes about death, for example, and coming to terms with the loss of her parents when she was young. But while there is a psychopathic assassin (a twist on that character, too), and the book definately played into my primal aversion of needles-- it's unusual for a thriller that you kind of see the bad guys' point. Would it be a good thing if we could live forever, here on earth, in these mortal bodies?

Not to mention that the sexual tension between Jaime and Yani really heats up in this one. Thank goodness TREASURE OF EDEN is almost out!

BEYOND EDEN is one of those books that seriously interferes with one's ability to put it down and do what you're supposed to be doing.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
The second installment in the Jaime Richards thrillers, `Beyond Eden,' surpasses S.L. Linnea's first effort, `Chasing Eden,' both in terms of the quality of the story and character development. While `Chasing Eden' is an exciting, well-conceived story itself, `Beyond Eden' is not burdened with much of the background information necessary to build the world within which Jaime and her mysterious friend, Yani, operate. As such, `Beyond Eden' hits the ground running and does not end until the reader lies panting, exhausted and exhilarated at the finish line.

`Beyond Eden' opens reminding readers of Jaime's disappearance earlier with a letter from the Department of the Army to Jaime's brother. However, when the children of former Eden residents begin to disappear, Jaime reappears. (Obviously, Jaime has some explaining to do.) Then, Jaime joins Yani on a mission to find the children and to understand the reason the children were kidnapped. On a journey that takes the two from Iraq to Greece to the Island of Patmos to Sweden, Jaime and Yani learn more about one another as they learn of a sinister plan of a wealthy industrialist, Nestor Allende. Allende has invested time and capital to isolate the DNA of Eden Operatives in an effort to extend the natural human lifespan for his own, selfish benefit. Unless Jaime and Yani decipher Allende's web of treachery, he just may succeed at the expense of the kidnapped children.

There is a lot to like about `Beyond Eden.' The pace of the story is reminiscent of a Jason Bourne movie, and there is a love story that begins to grow between Jaime and Yani. The emotions between the primary and secondary protagonists are not quite satisfied, which leaves the reader wondering...and wanting more.
