Seeds of War is the second book in the Eden's root trilogy.

The mission of Eden must be fulfilled and Eden’s best Seekers are needed. Forming a new group they dub the Seeders, Fi, Asher, and Sean are joined by a new addition as they set out to bring hope and support to the Topsiders in the form of radios and heirloom seeds. Their experiences Topside prepare them for the threat from marauding gangs they call Lobos, but it is a different, less obvious sort of threat that takes them by surprise. As radio broadcasts begin to reconnect Eden and the Topsiders, the Seeders stumble upon mysterious broadcasts from unknown stations. When two of their own new radio stations go silent within days of each other, Fi and her companions realize that something is terribly wrong. Eden finds itself pitted against a growing and unknown force as their very mission lights the flames of war.


I received Seeds of War as part of the tour hosted by AToMR Tours in return for an honest review. Seeds of War is the second book in the Eden’s Root Series it continues Fi’s story. Fi’s family has made it safely to Eden, where they are all accepted into the colony. Fi’s relationship with Asher still exists and now Sean has moved on with his own love interest. Fi has also agreed to marry Asher when she turns 17 because they are both in love and have been for a long time. As the family settles into life in the colony Fi struggles with what to do now that she’s not leading the family. She spends her time working in a lab as well as going out as a seeker. It’s while she’s visiting Tom the radio guy that they get their first call from one of the original Diaspora colonies that Eden is modeled after.  

The higher up’s have a chance to talk over the radio and the colonists learn that they never fished Diaspora III which is where Fi’s family was to be stationed before her father got sick. They also learn that Diaspora I had issues with the seals causing people to leave running into the forest including the president and her family. A few of Diaspora’s scientist were saved including the one who took her family off the list and who Louie stole the plans from.  The plan for Eden was to be able to help the earth’s remaining people rebuild, hence the seeders are created. Fi, with the help of her friends will take seed’s that haven’t been engineered to groups of people in the open. They will also provide them with radios and attempt to see the countryside along the way. It’s not that easy the group will face threat’s that will risk everything.  Will the Seeders be able to finish their mission?

Like the first one I’m in love with Seeds of War. It’s such an intriguing story that captivates the imagination. Just like the first one I had a hard time putting it down I even stayed up super late just to finish because I just had to know what was going to happen next. I love concept of Eden it’s unlike any Dystopia book I’ve read which creates a unique story. I think the idea of the seeders is great also; it’s a great way to rebuild the heirloom veggies. I found Seeds of War well written, the story flows along smoothly so anyone teen or adult will be able to keep up. I love being to watch Fi and her friends grow up they have come such a long way from the beginning of the first book they continue to progress. Overall it’s a great series I would suggest anyone who’s into the whole post-apocalyptic concepts. I look forward to the next installment in the series because I’m very much in love with the series.

I am a wife and entrepreneur living and working in Florida. I am also a graduate of Mount Holyoke College, where I majored in Biology. It was always my assumption that I would end up making research my life. Though it did not work out that way in the end, my passion for Biology remains intact. 

I have always loved biology-based science-fiction and the young adult genre. It is in this vein that I offer my work.
