My Review:

With the rampant dystopian novels to choose from, EVE takes us for a turn into a future riddled with few survivors struggling to get the next generation from "schooled" youth.

EVE is the beginning of a turbulent new trilogy from author Anna Carey. Carey has created this amazing post-plague world where civilization is overrun in Califonia by a King and children , what are left, are rounded up and penned in in schools for their future education. Now, now, no spoilers so we are not revealing what they are being groomed for, but that is all about to change when the most promised of her school EVE finds herself challenging everything she believes in one night as she sees a fellow student Arden slip away and escape.

If you were only told one version of the world and you really believed it to be true, would you be able, be strong enough to leave it and escape before your future is taken away from you? What would you give up to have the choice of your future.

Eve was a breathtaking novel, the main character Eve and her struggles in her world, as well as the unraveling of her reality into this new realization of how the world works outside of her walls, as well as what was happening in it, was amazing to read. There was this depth and character to the people in the story that real gripped me as a reader and I felt rapidly like falling for both Eve and Caleb in their struggle for survival, freedom, hope, danger, sacrifice and their love.

Seeing as how this will be a trilogy I am totally taken away with Carey's fabulous story building and her beautifully written character relationships.

the story really had a great sense of flow, and I could not put it down. I ate up the pages and was totally in awe by the end. I cannot wait to see what comes up next. The ending with tear at you, so there will be excitement in the air for the second releases surely. The series and the expectation for book two is now overwhelming. Carey' sbook will capture you.

Book Blurb:
The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, 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 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.
