(Salt Eden Book 1)
STORY-LINE IN THE BEGINNING BY CELESTA THIESSEN:
Billed for those you liked Lost and Jericho, In The Beginning, is a new series by author Celesta Thiessen. Siblings Abigail and Nathan Taylor live in New York where crime runs rampant. When Saber Chad shows up at Abigail’s door with instructions from her father to go with him to Salt Eden, they begin a search for her brother, Nathan. Nathan’s dealing drugs and owes money to the wrong people. Someone is trying to kill him, and he can’t afford for the police to become involved. As they run for their lives, Salt Eden looks better and better. My book reviews of In The Beginning follow.
CHARACTER, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
In The Beginning Is a story filled with action and suspense. Although a short read of 46 pages, Celesta Thiessen crafted an action-packed storyline. I found the premise intriguing and the characters believable. Nathan’s character portrays him as immature and selfish. Nathan‘s a character I found hard to like. Abigail is sweet and trying to save her brother from himself. Adding in the father’s personality and his concept of recreating paradise in Salt Eden, I found he reminded me of a mad scientist as he intends to create a new world of love and peace. Without giving spoilers, I can’t say more.
