What you thought you knew about the BIBLE
 is about to CHANGE.
What if you found out you were the granddaughter of the first woman, no not Eve, but Lilith? After 150 years Dika Edens, the oldest of 4 girls each destined to live forever finds out that very thing. She is not sure if it is a curse or a gift from the Gods. All she knows is the man that has informed her of this has way too much guilt on his shoulders regarding her and her past. Chrome is her Guardian but that does not mean he can protect her from everything. He should be the first one to know that - since he is the one telling her that she must save the world.
My name is Dika, I am an American born Hungarian, Polish, Spanish Gypsy with a little bit of something special, born right here in the green state of Oregon, home of the Beavers. History would be changed in a matter of a few words spoken from the man that has been haunting my dreams. My sisters and I need to save the world and if we don't the Universe will cease to exist as we know it.
My name is Chrome Jai, Dragon Guardian to Dika Edens, created to protect her from the evils of the first human woman mother of mankind. I will protect her as she fights to save the humans, but her first assignment will be to make it through the first 48 hours and find her Aunt and her Grandmother.
We will go together to hell and back just to fix the mess of the Gods and man.

4/5 Stars
Thunderstorm is a wonderful read that had me hooked within the first chapter. I could not and I refused to put it down until I was finished. This book is fast paced and will keep you on your toes throughout the whole story. Everything you thought you knew about the Bible and Adam n Eve is completely thrown out the door. I loved how it didn't just have 1 God but all of the God's from all of the different religions. Thunderstorm have everything you want to read in a Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance book, dragons, demons, vampires, gods, goddesses and shifters. This book is full of action, suspense and romance that will keep you coming back for more. I know I'm now a huge fan and I cannot wait for the next book! 

Dika and her sisters are direct descendants of Lilith. Her and her sisters must save the world with their guardians and family by their sides they must take on a horrible evil, an evil that will come knocking at the door sooner than I thought and if they don't the universe will cease to exist. 

Character Interview  Dika Edens

Thank you Steph for being here. I did 

not expect anyone over so excuse the 

mess. We have had a rough couple of 

days. But thank you for talking to us.

For everyone that has not read 

Thunderstorm by J.M. Schroder we are 

hosting her character Dika Edens and 

getting to know her a bit better.

Dika, why don’t you start out by telling 

us a bit about yourself, for those that 

haven’t read the book and then maybe 

give some details about you that the 

book doesn’t touch on.

I am a 150 year-old woman that was 

just informed that I must save the world 

from the devil and his wife. I have 3 

awesome sisters one of which….well I 

can’t say…(Pause)(deep breath) anyways 

I just met my Dragon and OMG well you 

will just have to see for yourself. Damn 

he is fine.

How is it having three sisters and being 

the daughter of Lilith all at the same 


Not Daughter she is my grandmother. It 

is great being the big sister. But Hell, 

finding out what I have. It is amazing. I 

love my grandmother. But she had 

plenty of time to tell us what we are and 

what we had to do. But anyways. Let’s 

move on.

Do you ever feel that maybe you could 

have had a normal life and not had to 

worry about saving the world? 

Yes and no. It is hard for a woman that 

doesn’t age to have a normal life. You 

know. Forever and all, people talk.

Tell us about Chrome?

 Why don’t you just take a look he is 

right there. That is all you need to know.

 The rest is between us well when we 

figure it out.

Is there anything that the book doesn’t 

tell us as far your feelings about your 

gift or curse? Your feelings of your 

mother? Of Chrome? Of having to save 

the world itself? 

There is a lot my book doesn’t tell you 

about the curse, because the damn Gods

don’t tell you anything. They keep it to 

themselves until they think it is time to 

tell you.

My mother, well I love her, but so much 

is up in the air right now. We will have 

to see how things work out.

I don’t think it is my responsibility to 

save the world, but the Gods made it my


Chrome well I find him as sexy as hell 

and I feel as if I have known him 

forever, but we are just learning about 

each other. The sex however is fantastic.

What do we have to look forward to in 

book 2?

 Yes you will and a lot of things will be 

answered. But you will have to wait and 


What People Are Saying About It
Completely sucked into this book....and that is no pun towards the vampires involved. Everyone, religious or not, has heard the major stories of the Bible....Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and Samson and Delilah. This book is an incredible spin off those stories. 
Main characters Dika and Chrome are amazing. As Dika who views herself as plain an ordinary in comparison to her sisters is adored by her dragon Chrome. Any woman would consider herself blessed and lucky to be described as Chrome describes Dika. 
This book is action packed and now I am thoroughly disappointed that I have to wait for the next installments!" –Jeannie Christo, Goodreads reviewer

“This author is currently one of my new favorites!  Her stories are fast paced and well written.  I had to force myself to put my kindle down in order to sleep!” – Ashlee Vaughn 2012 Goodreads review

“Cool! It’s a great read!!”  Tamara Beard Goodreads reviewer

 December 28, 2012 I was curious, when I 

read the blurb, as to how this spin would be a 

successful PNR, but Ms. Schroder makes it 

work. There are some typographical errors, but 

I was so engrossed in the story that it didn't 

really matter much. The heroine, Dika, grows 

throughout the story and the hero, Chrome Jai, 

is protective and strong... I can't wait to read 

the next book. I didn't get enough of the 

Daughters... I almost wish I'd found 

Thunderstorm after the author had released a 

few more in the series... Can I have more 

please? - Mandymonkey – Amazon Reviewer 


I was lucky enough to read an ARC of 

Thunderstorm (Daughters of Eden) and all I 

can honestly say about it is this:


I wasn't sure what to expect at first...I think we 

are all a little nervous, picking up an author 

we may not have heard of before. Now? Yeah-

 counting my LUCKY STARS!

From the very first pages, J.M. Schroder has 

her fingers into you and you are helpless to 


This wasn't at all what I'd expected. I ADORE 

Dika! She grows and as she learns who/what 

she is, I felt like I, the reader, was right there 

with her.

I would also, RIGHT NOW, like to ask Santa 

to add one Chrome Jai to my Christmas list!

This story is truly an original and honestly, I'm 

not sure five stars is even enough to rate it! 

TEN STARS wouldn't get us half way there!

I'm telling you right now..yeah...YOU! That 

person who is reading this and waffling...make 

the purchase! You will not be sorry you did!!”

Excellent read! A different take on what 

started it all.
