Since the age of ten, Mia has lived under the iron fist of the fundamentalist preacher who lured her mother away to join his fanatical family of followers. In Edenton, a supposed “Garden of Eden” deep in the South American jungle, everyone follows the Reverend’s strict but arbitrary rules—even the mandate of whom they can marry. Now sixteen, Mia dreams of slipping away from the armed guards who keep the faithful in, and the curious out. When the rebellious and sexy Gabriel, a new boy, arrives with his family, Mia sees a chance to escape.

But the scandalous secrets the two discover beyond the compound’s façade are more shocking than anything they ever imagined. While Gabriel has his own terrible secrets, he and Mia bond together, more than friends and freedom fighters. But is there time to think of each other as they race to stop the Reverend’s paranoid plan to free his flock from the corrupt world? Can two teenagers crush a criminal mastermind? And who will die in the fight to save the ones they love from a madman who’s only concerned about his own secrets?

*Advanced Praise*
“The chemistry between Mia and Gabriel is palpable in their teasing dialogue and sizzling moments of physical connection. Its rewards … are many: fast-moving action, a capable heroine and a resolution that leaves plenty of room for a sequel.” – Kirkus Reviews [STARRED REVIEW]

“Debut author Elisa Nader hits a strong note with her ESCAPE FROM EDEN… At-times swoony, at-times extremely dangerous, and at-other times completely shocking.” - Examiner.com
"Nader has done something amazing: written a really original novel, one full of characters you’ll care about; smart, witty dialog; and plenty of shocks and thrills. A wonderful balance of light and dark." —Michael Grant, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Gone Series 
"An exciting, terrifying, page-turning thrill ride you will not be able to put down.” - Gretchen McNeil, Author of POSSESS, TEN and 3:59


*Interview With MiaEden*
What do you love the most?
You mean, who, right? You can’t love things. Things are incapable of loving back, and love should be returned, don’t you think? And in Edenton, we should all love each other equally. But that’s not true with me. I love my brother Max the most. And my mother, I guess. Although we aren’t exactly getting along right now.

What surprised you about coming to live in Edenton?  

Uh, well, it’s in the middle of the jungle. Literally. In the middle of nowhere. There’s nothing around here for a ten mile radius. So, yeah, that was kind of a surprise when I got here. As a ten year old it was a lot to comprehend. Now that I’m sixteen, I just accept it. *Fidgets* I guess I accept it. Anyway, most of my friends don’t remember their lives before coming to Edenton. I do, though. But I’m not allowed to talk about it.
And Gabriel. He surprised me. Really surprised me.

What about him surpised you?

*Leans in* Have you seen him?

That can't be the only thing.

Of course it’s not. He’s so… reckless. He doesn’t care what anyone thinks. He’s funny. Kind of funny. Thinks he’s funny. She’s more of a smart-ass,I guess. I’m really not supposed to say that word…

What word?

Ass. “A curse from a woman’s lips lessons her femininity, and makes her more culpable of sin.”

Who said that?

The Reverend. He believes the Flock should take on “gender appropriate” job responsibilities and roles. I work in the kitchen with the rest of the girls my age. My mom teaches the younger children in the school house. Some of the younger girls work in the laundry and sewing cottage. The Reverend thinks that traditional values--

I don't want to hear about him. Tell me more about Gabriel.

It’s hard for me to admit this, but I’m drawn to him. Mostly, I think, because he wants what I want. As much, or maybe even more, than I want it.

And what's that?

*Whispers* To escape Edenton.

How are you going to do that?

I don’t know. Yet.

*Meet Elisa Nader*

Hi. I’m Elisa. I like cheese and reading and TV show marathons. Writing is scary, but not as scary as, say, Civil War amputations. I’m an Aquarius. Uh… let’s see… I’m not very good at writing my own biography. Or autobiography. I guess this is reading more like a slightly incoherent personal ad.

  1. OMG. This book sounds so good!!!! It's the first time I hear about it and wow, I already want to read it.
    The whole idea of leaving under a fundamentalist preacher sounds terrifying but intriguing.

    Thanks for sharing this post :)
