The year is 2033 and the world hovers on the edge of explosion as unexplained crop deaths lead to severe global food shortages. In the United States, the Sickness is taking lives slowly, creeping its way into every family. Fi Kelly has already faced the Sickness in her own family, toughening her beyond her years. But a shocking confession from her dying father will push her toughness to its absolute limits. Saddled with an impossible secret and the mission of saving her little sister, Fi sets out to transform herself into the warrior that she must become to survive the coming collapse. Along the way, she will discover that evil can be accidental and that love can be intentional.
Eden’s Root is an apocalyptic surprise! The world is falling into destruction, and the danger lies in the genetically enhanced foods that become known as ‘Sickfood’. Fi Kelly’s father entrusts her with the serious task of getting her sickly mother and younger sister safely to Eden, but doing so means traveling far and wide through the troubles of hunger, sickness, and violence.
Rachel Fisher thoroughly details the breakdown of the world, which is why the novel seems a little slow in the beginning. The upside to reading the world’s end from the very beginning is having the opportunity to see Fi grow from just the average girl to a fierce survivor. Surrounded by family and close friends she hurtles over obstacles and tough situations. Fi even finds love in one of the darkest cities in America since the sickness and famine became widespread.
Although there is a dark gray cloud cast over Fi and her family for most of Eden’s Root readers are eventually left with a hopeful feeling. There’s a plan in the works to bring the world back to its former glory, but only time will tell if all of mankind’s problems can be solved. Thankfully, Fisher will keep the anticipation and hope rolling in the next installment of the Eden’s Root Trilogy, Seeds of War!
