Second Eden Book Review
"Carlton Austin has crafted a wonderful piece of work in
Second Eden - an action-packed suspense thriller with a
little romance and some elements of science fiction. Its
beautifully designed cover incorporates gorgeous images
depicting scenes within the plot and the book is available in
both hard and soft cover. I recommend the hard cover, folks.
This book is sure to be one that you keep among your
favorite authors on your bookshelves. Second Eden is
destined for a talented director to take big screen fans on its
Best of friends, Peter (an intelligence agent) and Bo (an
astronaut), have a bond that even Peter's affair with Bo's
wife could not break. Bo and some other scientists perish in
a mysterious fire just after completing an assignment. The
government cover-up pushes Peter to find out what really
happened and he becomes torn between patriotism and
humanitarianism. He never loved a woman until he met
Molly - but can he trust her? In fact, he wonders if he can
trust anyone at all.
This is definitely an intelligent read; the author incorporates
incredible alien artifacts, mysteries, murders, government
espionage and complex cover-ups, cat and mouse chase
scenes, archeological finds and ancient societies, deceit
and a love story that transcends this life into the next.
Second Eden certainly has a plot that will make its readers
think deeply about our world. Carlton shows us the dangers
of where our science could lead. His story teaches that
there are repercussions for every single choice that we
make - both as individuals and as a society. He brings up
social issues, like reminding us of the importance of
recognizing the value of women who choose to be mothers
- as a career, rather than as a side project. He even
includes enlightening views of what might happen to a soul
when the body can no longer serve it.
I really cannot say enough about Carlton's novel. Truly, I
could barely put it down to go to work or prepare meals!
Second Eden will remain on my bookshelf for years to come
and will, no doubt, be read many times by my family."
