History is always written to serve the powerful.”


In the year 2086, Camp Eden promises summer “the way things used to be,” back before the oceans rose, the sun became a daily enemy, and modern civilization sank into chaos. Located inside the EdenWest BioDome, the camp is an oasis of pine trees, cool water, and rustic charm.

But all at Camp Eden is not what it seems.

No one will know this better than 15-year-old Owen Parker. A strange underwater vision, even stranger wounds on Owen’s neck, and a cryptic warning from the enchanting lifeguard Lilly hint at a mystery that will take Owen deep beneath Lake Eden and even deeper into the past. What he discovers could give him the chance to save the tattered planet. But first, Owen will have to escape Camp Eden alive…

Personal Experiences

This was one of those books that was just to occupy my free time, and I would probably never glance at the book again. It was good book in that sense, it made me feel all the things a book is supposed to make you feel. Romance. Fear. Hatred. Confusion. Anticipation. 

You probably know the feeling. Nothing you really want to read, so you go to the library just to get a book. Everyone has done it at some point. And if you’re reading this and thinking I’m crazy, you will one day do the same thing and remember me. 

It was a really good book. I believe that the series is actually finished. But what I really wanted to read was Alcatraz Versus the Dark Talent and I think I threw the book at the wall as soon as I got my hands on the book I wanted to read. 

I encourage you to read this book if you thin it looks good, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.


“The night felt like it had gone by so fast, yet every second of it was bright and burned into my mind, and I felt sure I would never forget any of it, almost like I’d left some part of me back there on that island, a piece carved out that wouldn’t travel into whatever came next. It would just stay behind, living that night over and over.” 

“A hand closed over my wrist. I looked over, and there was Lilly, cast in moonlight and blue, hair snaking around her, a siren calling to me: ‘come on.”

“Time passed, unknowable amounts and I had no sense for it. There was just the blanket and grass, the cold of rain and the heat of Lilly like a small sun beside me, and we lay there until the clouds left and the SimStars reappeared.”

“I felt something fall away inside. Some floor, and from beneath it boiled up something dark, black and bitter, craving vengeance.”

“Shut up, butcher,” snapped Aliah. ‘We know what you are.”
