Daniel Christianson assembles a team of highly skilled people to find the Garden of Eden. Though trouble is expected in the unknown, they find more than they bargained for. However, not all of the surprises are bad.
Alexine presents an interesting idea; that of being able to travel to the Garden of Eden. With that, coupled with the science fiction equipment the team has, the story is intriguing. The personalities of the characters are revealed as the plot moves on, and events that link them to each come to light. The underlying story looks to be well thought out.
Overall, the plot moves along well. In the beginning, it seemed like the dialogue was forced and rough. As the book progressed, the dialogue became more fluid. When the characters had to separate throughout the story, it was still pretty easy to follow along and keep up with was happening.
Alexine is full of Christian themes, especially that of salvation through faith in Christ. I enjoy seeing that as it presents the gospel in a non-aggressive way. In addition to salvation, doubt, regret, and a few other spiritual concepts had to be dealt with by many of the characters.
