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 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

It had been a little over a year since I had read Matthew C. Plourde's book, Eden, so I was more than thrilled when offered the chance to read the second installment in the series, Babylon! Because of the amount of time that had passed, I was afraid that I may not be pulled in to the story the way I had been before, or that I'd have trouble catching up; boy, was I wrong! My eyes were glued to the pages from the very beginning, as I was brought back to a world of pain, suffering, isolation and extreme perseverance. The battle between Good and Evil has never been more fierce, or more confusing. If you're a fan of Eden, then you will certainly become an even bigger fan of Babylon!

In the first book, the world itself has fallen apart. Mountains have crumbled and the sea is nothing but dust. Heaven above and Hell below have opened their gates, throwing Alexandra into the midst of it all in hopes of saving mankind. We were there with her as she struggled with her new identity, coming to terms with who she truly is and what she was put on this Earth to do. And by the end of the story, we felt that she done just that. We were wrong. In following her heart, she may have made an unwise decision, unleashing an even greater threat upon the Earth. Torn between what she knows is right, and fear of losing her only true love yet again, and this time forever, Alexandra must stand up and fight and undo the damage that has been done.

I know, just another book series about the apocalypse... But it's not! This series is much different than those I have come across in recent years, and offers a fresh new take on the end of the world and how it comes about. I promise, you will not be disappointed after reading these books, especially Babylon! Read it!

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

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

This was a great read. I started reading it this morning and I only stopped for lunch until I was done. I haven't been that caught up in a book since Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn.
Having just reread Eden to remind myself where things stood, I felt the author has really matured in his writing style found his stride. I'm looking forward to book three.
I absolutely love Erzulie and hope she's in it!

I loved the 1st book in the series sooo much that I was a bit apprehensive about where the story would progress from there, since Koneh was such a huge reason for that. However, I can very happily say that Matthew Plourde has delivered another amazing chapter in the Eden saga & I I dont know how I'm going to survive the wait till Brasilia becomes available. The separation between Koneh & Alexandra is killing me! And I'm truly hoping that they will find a way to be together again after everything that they've both already sacrificed.
Once again the storyline kept me completely absorbed until the last page & left me wanting more. I find myself really caring about what happens to Alexandra, Erzulie & Koneh, because the author really does an amazing job of making you feel as though you're experiencing every emotion right along w/ them. So in that way it also makes it nearly impossible to not become heavily invested in what happens to each them. I also found the editing to be top notch again w/ only 2-3 grammatical errors that I came across.
So thank you Mr. Plourde!!! I rarely find myself this caught up in a story & I can't wait to find out what happens next.
