Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau 

“People make terrible choices out of fear of losing what they hold dear.” – Dividing Eden

I’m generally not a big fan of dual perspectives but this story did it well, the chapters oscillates between Carys and Andreus; royal twins who must battle it out for the throne yet one is a sworn protector of another and keeper of a dark secret. It’s like watching a bomb being set off except the characters knows nothing but you (the reader) sees everything. The plot is fast paced and it explores the themes of duty, honour and power. I liked that Carys is portrayed as a strong female character who is strategic, gutsy and honourable but still has her own faults and vulnerabilities. Dividing Eden has court intrigue, politics, magic, villainy and characters with secrets, it’s a great set up for the next book! Recommended for fantasy lovers that likes strong female characters, political intrigue, trials and tribulations.
