REVIEW

"Vaughn has created a world where diversity is celebrated"

The peaceful race known as The'Rans were legendary for the healing powers of their beautiful women, but when an ancient covenant was broken The'Ran lands were destroyed along with most of its inhabitants. Now the fate of the powerful Ceyan lies in the hands of four warrior brothers and their The'Ran brides. In a race against time, these four women must come to terms with their legacy and embrace their destiny as healers in this strange new world.

The fourth and final installment of the DESCENDANTS OF THE LIGHT series starts off with high drama. As the chosen mate of King Rohman, Eden quickly realizes his people skills could use some work. Bitter resentment has caused a rift in Rohman's relationship with his Queen Mother and her perceived betrayal has resulted in his cruel treatment of others and a deep distrust of women. Eden can sense the pain that lies within Rohman, but will he ever allow her to touch his heart?

Despite his best attempts to treat Eden as simply a necessary obligation, Rohman finds himself completely enthralled by her beauty. Just as things start to come together, they quickly fall apart when sickness and treachery visit the royal family. The Queen Mother falls ill; Eden suddenly turns up missing - and time is running out for them both. Is Eden the key to curing the mysterious illness? And will she be found before it's too late? The answers to their future lie in the past as Eden takes her rightful place as the Holder of "The Great Power."

FINDING EDEN ties together the previous novellas in the series while weaving in a surprising side plot. Though I found the series lacking in depth overall, I will admit the story held my attention throughout. Readers should note there is a high "sex:story" ratio in this series. That said, I can appreciate Eve Vaughn's usage of multicultural characters in a futuristic setting. She has created a world where diversity is celebrated -- and that's pretty awesome!
