Eighteen-year-old Eve has never been beyond the heavily guarded perimeter of her school, where she and two hundred other orphaned girls have been promised a future as the teachers and artists of the New America. But the night before graduation, Eve learns the shocking truth about her school’s real purpose—and the horrifying fate that awaits her.Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Arden, her former rival from school, and Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust . . . and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.
In this epic new series, Anna Carey imagines a future that is both beautiful and terrifying. Readers will revel in Eve’s timeless story of forbidden love and extraordinary adventure.
What I thoughtI haven't read too many dystopian style novels. I didn't have others to influence if I liked this or not and now I am happy. I did like it. I thought the story was very interesting and something that could happen. Girls are being used for broodmares after a plague devastates the world. Not only that, but the sacrifices Eve had to make in order to gain her freedom.
The reason behind Eve being hunted relentlessly took me by surprise. You'll have to read it to find out exactly what I mean, but it made for an interesting dynamic when trying to capture poor Eve.
The romance in this was nice. Eve was raised to think all men or boys are evil but Caleb proves different. I had a lot of hopes, still do, for the two of them. The ending of the book left my heart aching just a little. Eve was a great adventure. Hope just around the corner, unlikely friendships are made and love is rediscovered. I can't wait to see what happens in the rest of this trilogy.
