Guest Post from Janelle Stalder!
Thank you to Nicole for having me on here today and being a part of the Eden-South blog tour! My guest post today will be a quick look into the fourth and final installment of the Eden Series. So let’s get to it!
Eden-East, book four, is probably the hardest one I’ve had to write thus far. Throughout the last three novels I’ve built up a lot of questions, especially surrounding Aiden. I think the biggest thing people seem to question is, why Aiden? What makes him so special that he was chosen to lead these people? Of course there’s an answer, I’ve just held onto it tightly until now. The issue here is letting it come out naturally. As questions are answered and truths are brought to light, it’s important that I don’t just dump it on the readers like “here’s your order, would you like fries with that?” There’s a bit of finesse that needs to be applied to ending a series. Eden has many storylines going at the same time. It’s my job to wrap them up nicely so when you’re finished reading it there are no more questions in your mind. Unless, of course, I want there to be Mowa ha ha. Am I that cruel? Possibly. I can assure you all the major riddles will be solved and all your favourite characters will have an ending, happy or not.
This journey will take readers over the Giants Hills into the sands of the desert. We’ll be introduced to Hakim, the leader of the Sand People, briefly. We’ll get a bigger look at the Forest People and their leader Zachary, who popped up in book two for a short scene. We will also be further introduced to another land and people that was first mentioned in Eden-West, when Elisa enters the ballroom of the Sun palace for the first time:
“The ceilings were painted with intricate images of the god-like people from the lands of Elysium, their white eyes glowing down at them all.”
Most importantly, we’ll see Aiden and Aziz finally come face to face. When it’s all said and done, will this be the last time my readers get to read about Aiden and his friends? Perhaps not, I guess you’ll just have to wait and see I might still have a few tricks up my sleeves.
Eden-East isn’t quite done yet, but it will be out later this year. In the meantime, I thought I’d be nice and give you all a tiny excerpt from it. Enjoy!
And there will come to be, two souls made from one. Dark as night and light as day. Without one there can be no other. Both made from the darkest of hearts, one will rise up to defend the weak, and return peace to the lands. Made from the God’s children, swift on foot and sure in mind. On land he will rise, while the dark takes to the sky. The Warrior must be raised as such, away from poisoned minds. He will be our saviour.
The betrayal that tore a family apart. Two brothers bent on destroying the other. A whole world on the brink of war.
Aiden has been through his second battle in the magical world of Eden. The victory is short lived and Aiden is sent racing toward his friends in the Capital. After being back in Eden with the Riders, he is eager to reunite with Wolf, Elisa and Logan, although he doesn’t realize just what he’s returning to. Surprises await him when he arrives in the Capital; his close-knit group of friends is slowly falling apart. On top of it all, another battle is just around the corner, one that will change everything.
Rain has made her choice, and now she is in some unknown fortress with the feared sorcerer, Aziz. She wants nothing more but to please him, but being his Queen isn’t as easy as she thought. While trying to learn sorcery, and dealing with Aziz’s advances, Rain is finding her new life a bit overwhelming. Just when she thought it couldn’t get worse, she discovers a secret of Aziz’s, and it is nothing she could have expected.
Rose has supported Callum throughout their journey, but now that the final battle is just around the corner she is faced with a hard reality. Everything she has gained with him could be taken away. Is she willing to live the rest of her life without him? Can she just stand by while he destroys everything, including himself? Will he ever be able to find peace? Will she?
In the third installment of the Eden Series fates will be decided, and the battle between brothers that has been a decade in the making will finally come to an end. Only one of them can be High King.
The battle starts now.

I’m surely in love with each of the guys in the book…This is just a full body cast. I haven’t met many authors who could write so many characters and you don’t feel cheated that you didn’t get enough of your favorite…The writing is phenomenal and spectacular world building and cast. You won’t be disappointed by this one. Those that love Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, and Divergent will surely enjoy this series.”
