In the Dark of Eden

In the Dark of Eden (The Eden Trilogy Book 1) by [Adam Starks]

In the Dark of Eden by Adam Starks is a captivating mystery novel about a fictionalized version of the town of Eden in West Virginia. The book follows Tyhannon Briggs’ inner turmoil with his life experiences and journey through the town’s lush forest and its paranormal activity. The rich description of the forest and events includes the existence of the Fountain of Youth and the mysterious disappearances of many adventurers. It also features commentary about nature’s power to defend itself, setting up space to discuss an important real-world issue. The atmosphere of the novel is surreal and moody, and the writing is sharp and provides a subtle beauty to this paranormal story. It has a poetic feel to it and a cadence which keeps you engaged throughout the story. Biblical allegories intertwine with the character’s inner thoughts and surrealist moments make for an intriguing setting with much potential do be explored.

While I enjoyed the story, I would’ve liked for the story to be longer so that I can see more character development to better understand their emotions and motives, because what is provided is compelling I just wish there was more. Luckily the book is the first in a trilogy, so while the novel ends on a cliffhanger and we’re left wanting more, additional books are sure to provide the answers.

In the Dark of Eden is an enthralling mystery novella that will appeal to readers looking for a dark and metaphysical twist to their supernatural stories.
