                Jacob has grown up in the land of Nodd, the land in which Zerachiel will come for the chosen ones; the Grace. Jacob is a part of the Grace, all of whom live in Nodd.  Outside of Nodd is the World, where the wicked are.  Nodd is perfect.  That is, until a wolf invades.  Only Jacob senses that something is wrong, and his feelings are confirmed when a strange boy comes to the land of Nodd.  As Jacob struggles with his faith, will he discover the secrets behind Nodd?

Opinion: 

                 When I requested this book for review, I was both intrigued and a bit wary.  Good cult-based books are hard to find, especially when they’re from the cult’s perspective.  I thought that Pete Hautman did an excellent job at portraying a cult.  Throughout the entire book, I was intrigued to learn about the cult and what they thought was the truth.  The main character, Jacob, was an interesting main character.  He wasn’t the average hero like most main characters are in books.  It was a nice breath of fresh air.

                Another thing I loved about this book was the simple yet captivating cover art.  The red on the bottom is a great contrast to the white on the top.

                The only complaint I have about this book is that in places it was a bit slow.  Shortening of description might have helped speed up things a bit more.

                All in all, Eden West is a beautifully written book that tells the way of life when living in a cult.
