    "The Hammer of Eden is a novel about a detective who must stop a group of eco-terrorists from enacting chaos. While the book has received some mixed reviews, its reception has generally been positive. The Hammer of Eden is one of the few novels to focus on the devastating effects of an earthquake."

    "This book centers around the earthquake that happened in Haiti. The story is heartbreaking, fearful, hopeful and tragic. It's a book of meaning and how to find meaning in a bad situation. I thought the story was well written and engaging. This is a book for adults and teens alike in my opinion. It has a bit of everything and some important life lessons. "
