Review: Revealing Eden by Victoria Foyt


Review: Revealing Eden by Victoria Foyt
*Warning - This review is truthful!  This is a bad book.*


Title: Revealing Eden
Author: Victoria Foyt
Publisher: Sand Dollar Press Inc
Format: Hardback (given to me by the author for my honest review) 
Pages: 307 pages
ISBN #: 0983650322


Eden Newman must mate before her 18th birthday in six months or she'll be left outside to die in a burning world. But who will pick up her mate-option when she's cursed with white skin and a tragically low mate-rate of 15%? In a post-apocalyptic, totalitarian, underground world where class and beauty are defined by resistance to an overheated environment, Eden's coloring brands her as a member of the lowest class, a weak and ugly Pearl. If only she can mate with a dark-skinned Coal from the ruling class, she'll be safe. Just maybe one Coal sees the Real Eden and will be her salvation her co-worker Jamal has begun secretly dating her. But when Eden unwittingly compromises her father's secret biological experiment, she finds herself in the eye of a storm and thrown into the last area of rainforest, a strange and dangerous land. Eden must fight to save her father, who may be humanity's last hope, while standing up to a powerful beast-man she believes is her enemy, despite her overwhelming attraction. Eden must change to survive but only if she can redefine her ideas of beauty and of love, along with a little help from her "adopted aunt" Emily Dickinson.





Review:

At first I wasn't going to post this review, but I feel that you all need to know about it and what's truly wrong with this book.  That and I told the author I would review it when she sent me the book.  Please be careful if you are going to pick up this book and read it.  I'm warning you now, because I wish someone would have warned me. When I was asked to read/review this book I read the synopsis and thought okay that is different, I'll give it a try.  I now wish I would have never done that. 

Please, don't be offended or mad at me for what I'm about to say, but I feel this book isn't worth the pages its printed on.  I'm never this harsh in my reviews.  I usually try my hardest to find something good in a book.  This one I couldn't.  It is nothing, but Racism in print! If you've read my blog or my reviews you know I'm very honest and this book made me so mad every time I read even a couple words on a page.  She calls white people in her books pearls, a total racial slur in this book.  I have no idea how this publishing company is okay with having this book published under their name! It is that bad. 

I felt like the author was trying really hard to show how much racism hurts, but she did it in the wrong way.  A very offensive way! I really hope that she wasn't trying to offend anyone, but she did and I'm not the only one!

I will say I am not keeping this book, I will give it to anyone that wants it though, because I don't want something so hateful in my house!  I can not recommend this book to any of you, because I wish I would have never read it!

Like I said I have nothing good I can say about this book, and I'm really sorry about that.  So I'm just going to stop this review right here before I get even more upset about this book!

Rating:

I'm not going to rate this book.  Mainly because I don't think it deserves any of my puppy ratings.  This is not a book to me, it is just pages bound together.
