"Harper Woods’s engrossing thriller Privileged Secrets: Seeds of Eden involves a patriarchal cult—and a centuries-old secret sisterhood that will stop at nothing to take it down. The book is set in contemporary New York, ... [but] when a character is revealed to be an ancient immortal being with super-natural abilities—the grandchild of Adam and Eve—the story takes a turn toward the mythical... . This fast- moving story is moved along by high-intensity situations and sharp wit... . The book’s depictions of sexual abuse are frequent but brief; they are always condemned. A developing romance moves at a slow pace to counter the fast moves of international espionage, ramping up anticipation for a steamy payoff... . With religious and romantic undertones, the speculative thriller Privileged Secrets relocates the battle between good and evil to a cult in New York, exposing conspiracies both human and supernatural."

“Harper Woods knows how to write, knows how to make the reader worry about the good side and fear the evil, she knows how to play with time. But the thing I liked most is how she combined all these facts in a work of fiction in a very deft way, with well-developed characters. The dynamic between Erica Pfeiffer and John Matthews is absolutely charming. Their relationship, the way they completed each other and the way their thoughts crossed and their knowledge tangled was an absolute delight to read about. One of the main things that I truly admired was the locations, the author Harper Woods takes us on a journey describing every place the characters go to through the events, which is very good... Woods must have done a lot of research on science, religion, art, geography, philosophy and so many other branches. The amount of information in this book is maddening, and yet it is never tiring and it never feels like it
drags on. The exact opposite, each small factor huge revelation stays with the reader throughout the story, like the riddles towards an even greater mystery.”
