Synopsis: This mind-blowing new series introduces Sloan Skye, and ambitious intern at the FBI's paranormal unit, where the usual rules of crime fighting don't apply...

Sloan has a sky-high IQ, a chaotic personal life, and a dream: to work for the FBI. Her goal is within reach until an error lands her with the FBI's ugly stepchild: the new Paranormal Behavioral Analysis Unit. She'll get to profile criminals, but the pool of suspects is a little more...diverse. Yet even as Sloan tackles her first case--a string of victims, all with puncture wounds to the neck--she can't silence her inner para-skeptic.

To catch the killer she'll have to think like one. That means casting aside her doubts, and dealing with the bizarre nightmares that started with the job. But the strangeness is only beginning, as Sloan pieces together the shocking truth about a case that's more personal than she ever would have guessed. 

Review: Blood of Eden is a very interesting book and I'm looking forward to seeing where this series is going. You definitely have to suspend belief while reading this story. It seemed a bit like a paranormal episode of Criminal Minds (a show I love!). I enjoyed the characters and I felt the main characters were well-developed while the minor characters faded a bit into the background. Some of the plot and sub-plots seemed to get obscured as to progression and resolution. It was fun to see some of it set in an area I know well - in fact it's right where I go to the gym. Overall, I enjoyed the book and the characters (especially Sloan, her mom, and her roommate, Katie) and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I feel Blood of Eden is a good start to what will amount to a great series!
