Summery of the Novel: John and Korey dreamt of a door to paradise, and the zealots claimed this meant they must lead them there. John and Korey refused- they had children to raise, and a town to protect from beasts outside its gates. And so the zealots stole the machine that protected them all, leading to the slaughter of dozens. Now John and Korey hunt them across the barren highways and crumbling skyscrapers of the future. Joined by ex-soldier Seth and cyborg Jen, they are drawn towards either death or salvation… for the truth of their dream will lead them to the secrets of Eden. Written by John Cooper lead singer of Skillet Eden is a tale of redemption and finding light in the darkness.
