Saving Eve by Dianna Hardy (Book Review)

saving eveSummary from Goodreads

Author’s Note: Saving Eve is a companion novel to The Witching Pen series, and should be read after The Last Dragon.

Amid long, wild grass, a snake slithers, hidden.
Hidden until a man opens his eyes…

Awaking with amnesia in St Mary’s Hospital, after a near-fatal freak accident, he is known only as Luc. With the help of Evie Gold, the kind, young woman who found him, he starts a new life – a second chance, a clean slate.

A bond burgeons between them.

But disturbing dreams of dark deeds become waking recountings. A blackness is uncoiling – seductive, familiar and dangerously provocative.

An ancient craving stirs; an old addiction rises.

Nothing is as it seems, and as reality crumbles, Luc finds himself asking, not just who he is, but…

Who is Evie?

From the author of the international bestselling Witching Pen series, Dianna Hardy takes a seed from The Last Dragon, and brings you an existential story of two beings in search of completion.

Paperback, First, 170 pages
Published May 7th 2015 by Satin Smoke Press (first published April 30th 2015)

 

My Review

The super talented Dianna Hardy has managed pulled me back into the reading world and show me what a fantastically crafted world is really all about. After a very long blogging break….I picked up Saving Eve on a whim when I couldn’t sleep…It didn’t help as it kept me up reading all night!! I truly enjoyed being thrown back into the mix of characters perviously loved as part of a series (The Witching Pen).

Saving Eve was a slow burner for me…which was okay as I was already intrigued by Lucifer’s story following the very beautiful The Last Dragon. This story sees two destined beings discovering not only who they are but what they actually mean to each other along the very bumpy road. The journey was rough but also very enlightening.

I love Hardy’s ability to strip a character bare, make you see the raw beauty of what inspired her to make them her very own in the first place. It’s a rare talent and one that will keep each and every one of her readers always coming back for more.

I don’t want to give too much of this story away but I will say that it was a journey for not only the characters but the readers alike. It’s filled with intrigue and some passion….have to say it isn’t as gloriously steamy as some other series’.

Lastly I would just like to that Dianna for giving me a reason to read again… your way with words and your ability to bring your characters to life so fully is a great pleasure. I will most definitely read any piece of writing you produce – thanks for taking a seed from a well-loved series and making it into something…so much more!

4/5 Stars!
