In order to survive you need food, bu what happens when the food that feeds you it's also the one killing you? Fi's father is close to death and he reveals a terrible secret to her, one that won't be so much of a secret in a short period of time, something that will change the world completely as they know it. Fi's father gives her one mission: to prepare and train to survive and take care of her family when the time comes.
Fi was one of my favorite aspect of the story, she is only fourteen years old and at her age, I was doing a bunch of stupid stuff, so to think that she is forced to grow up and take upon herself really big responsibilities in order to survive, it is quite impressive. Not only that, but she also has to make sure that she and her family make it to safety, but things get a bit more complicated, and instead of just her family, she brings on a-couple-of-a-lot of more people. Complicated.
Eden's Root is really good book with equally good and strong characters. I only had a little bit of trouble with a few parts of the dialog that didn't seem to flow quite naturally, but other than that the books is really worth reading :)
