Book Spotlight: Crashing Eden by Michael Sussman

I have quite a few book review requests from authors that I haven't had a chance get to yet, but plan to as soon as time allows.  What I decided to do in the meantime, is to feature these great authors and their books in book spotlights, until I can actually read them and write a review.  Today's book spotlight features Crashing Eden by Michael Sussman.  This is a YA fantasy/paranormal novel and I am looking forward to having time to read it.  Check out the synopsis and if you like it, you can add it to your TBR list also.

For one boy and his friends, the path to Paradise comes at a cost—one they may not be prepared to pay.
When a biking accident leaves 17-year-old Joss Kazdan with the ability to hear things others can't, reality as he knows it begins to unravel.
A world of legends exists beyond the ordinary life he's always known, and he is transported to the same Paradise he's studying in World Mythology. But the strange gets even stranger when his new friends build a device that delivers people through the gates of the Garden of Eden.
Now Samael, the Creator God, is furious. As Samael rains down his apocalyptic devastation on the ecstasy-seeking teens, Joss and his companions must find a way to appease Samael—or the world will be destroyed forever.

  1. This sounds so good! It's not something I would usually pick up, but that cover is enough to get me interested, and the synopsis to keep me hooked. (: I'd love to 'meet' Joss. Thans for sharing, Ellen!
