Read First World (Walker Saga, #1) Online Free - A paranormal romance series.
An epic journey.
If the Seventine are released, will anyone survive?
Abigail Swish might not love her life, living in gang-ridden New York in 2035 and training to fight and survive with Compound 23. But she is grateful for a few things, especially her no-filter-between-brain-and-mouth best friend Lucy and her escape each night into a dream world far different from her own.
In fact, sometimes she lives for the fleeting moments she spends at night with the man who fuels every romantic fantasy she’s ever had. But each morning reality returns. She could just cry. But she won’t of course; tears don’t change a damn thing.
Then without any warning, a month before her eighteenth birthday, everything does change. A guardian finds her. He explains, in a strangely familiar accent, that she was stashed on Earth for safekeeping and has been lost to her family ever since. And it is time to return home. To the First World; a land of unimagined beauty.
Abigail and Lucy find themselves escaping New York, ending up on another planet and traversing through an unforgiving wilderness. Yeah, because that sort of thing just happens every day. Luckily an unexpected saviour arrives; the man from her dream-world. Brace is six-and-a-half feet of gorgeous perfectness, wrapped in an arrogance like no other. Unable to trust his assistance, and unsure which of her instincts to follow - kiss him or punch him in the mouth - Abigail eventually accepts his help to find her family.
And what a family. Enter Josian, her father; larger than life and apparently not even human. He is Walker, a planet-less race revered as gods, causing mischief and mayhem through-out this star-system. Unfortunately, there is no time for a cosy reunion, since no one explained that by returning to First World her half-Walker genetics would act as a catalyst setting forth a chain of events which could spell disaster for not only her existence but that of all worlds.
First World is book one in the Walker Saga, a seven-book paranormal fantasy series.
Spurn - A Walker Saga Book Two release date set for September 2013.

Fair warning: I’m a guy. This review is from a male perspective. Ok now that that’s out of the way, let me tell you about this fantastic book!
I came across this author and her book on a Goodreads indie author forum (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review...

Well heck!! What can I say other than I really liked this story. I haven't read a book in a while so I was happy to find that the book I picked was enjoyable. I think this indie author did an excellent job writing a unique tale that had thrills and suspense around every corner. I enjoyed the rela...

This was.... An ok read. I'm trying to revamp my rating system, so a 2 star means that is was intriguing enough to keep me reading, but not enough to pull me in. And make me interested. Why? Let's break this down:
1. Abby is kick ass and who does love strong female heroines? We need more...

This is a little different than the books I normally read because it involves aliens and travel to other planets, which is more sci-fi. But I thoroughly enjoyed the story, especially the characters, and I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series.
The main characters were engaging...

Question: Why is it that so many YA Romance stories have characters that are ultra-super-duper cool?
Is it not enough to be brave, to find love, to find your place (calling) in life.
Instead you have to be the lost empress, who will live forever, in a body that doesn't age past age 28, with the the...

Okay so what I want to say first and foremost is that Eve tried really hard and it shows. There was a brilliant idea behind this book and the theories were just amazing.
And here comes the but….
But this book reads like a rough draft rather than the fully finished book. The ideas chapters should ha...

As surprising as this might seem, I actually didn't hate this book, well not all of it, at least...although I sure as hell hated a lot of scenes, not to mention the love interest is shit. I actually loved the humor, and some side-characters.

A bit of a mixed bag this one. First World is a sort of sci-fi/post-apocalyptic cross. Our heroine and her best friend live in post-apocalyptic New York and their relationship is the source of much of the humour in the book (and a little bit of The Selection-style fixation on outfits and home dec...

All I have to say is that Jaymin Eve is one of the most talented authors I have ever come across.
The different worlds that she is able to create are absolutely magical, and make you never want to leave. Not to mention her characters are so well developed that you can't help but get invested and...

An excellent read. The book was great because it had little romance and there wasn't insta love. I loved the parallel worlds and the mythical beings were described in detail. It was an action packed adventure that i would recommend fans of intergalatical relations, dystopia/ end of the world/ apo...
