She was old enough too remember a time before the schools. A time when people had their own homes, where men and women, boys and girls lived together in society. She was too young however to remember a time before the plague, before fear, survival and death were the only constants. But the one thing she would never forget was her mother, how much her mother loved her and how much she loved her back.

She was promised a future, after school she was promised a life of training, of learning, before moving to the prosperous City Of Sand. But the shining future she was promised was a lie, a fact she discovered only just in time to save herself, but at the cost of her friends. Alone, beyond the fences facing scavengers, wild animals and the Kings guards she sets out for Califia, the only place that is curtain to be safe. But reaching Califia will come at a great cost.

Eve may have been valedictorian and a shining example to other girls at her school, but she is still only a seventeen year old, naive to the way thing really are and the true nature of men, women and the world around her. As a society built on the labour of orphans, Eve, an orphan herself, runs from a horrific future only to discover nowhere is safe for her unless she is willing to leave behind those that she cares for. A new dystopian series of survival, betrayal, sacrifice and love. ( )

I've read a ton of negative reviews for this book, but I don't think it was that bad. I do agree with those who say that they disliked Eve - she was rather annoying caused more problems than anything. There were other characters I couldn't stand as well. The plot has been rather overused as well, but I feel as if Carey worked with it well. The book seemed rather rushed, but it held my attention nonetheless. I wanted to know what would come next, and I can't wait to read the next book. ( )

I went into this expecting mediocrity, but I also like my post-apocalyptic dystopias to have some logic. Stupid characters, instant teen love, shaky world-building, no sense of realism, and characters' ability to overcome a lifetime of indoctrination with one conversation. No thanks.

After realizing that I somehow managed never to actually write a review for Eve, I rushed to borrow a copy from the library. Having the sequel, Once, in front of me reminded me that I had a blurry remembrance of events past. I think it's important to let you know that, as a re-read, I had certain biases already. Still, I made sure to clear my mind and just sit down to enjoy a good story. It was time to get lost in a book.

My first impression of the book was, once again, really great. I found myself trapped inside Eve's world. A world of oppression. A stifling world, that is built on a basis of lies and deceit. Even before I reached the climax that I knew was coming, I had already fallen for the world that Anna Carey built for her readers. It's hard not to forgive Eve for the way she acts when you see how she was raised. Eve's society brainwashes women into mindless drones. It's terrifying and fascinating all at the same time.

That being said, I was able to feel for Eve a lot more this read through. It's true that she can be selfish, quite often in fact. Remembering her background helped me step past that and enjoy the rest of the story. It's Caleb who really made me fall in love though. Here is a boy that, despite everything else in his world, wants to help a stranger. I'll admit I swooned a bit. After all, who wouldn't fall in love with a guy who is willing to put his life on the line for you? His story, and the stories of the boys he protects, are what really kept me reading on.

The ending broke my heart in two, even though I knew it was coming. If you haven't had a chance to read Eve yet, you should know that there is a heart wrenching cliffhanger. It will make you come back. I promise. So, at the end of the day I actually liked Eve a lot more this time around! Enough to warrant it a whole extra star. Fans of dystopian fiction will fall in love with Anna Carey's new world, and the heart of the story will keep you coming back for more. ( )

This review is posted on Reading with AngelaRenea!

I have been eyeing this book up in Books-A-Million for over a year now, and I finally read it! I have to say it was not what I expected, but it was still really good.

This book is a dystopian young adult book with a love story incorporated into it, so while this is a very unique dystopian young adult book with a love story, it is still a snowflake in a blizzard, which unfortunately means, that not a whole lot of this book really stuck with me. That being said, I will be continuing this book because I think there is a lot of potential in this series.

This book follows Eve, a young girl who escapes from her 'school' where she learns they are preparing girls to be baby machines, and teaching them to fear and hate men. I think that that is a really interesting idea, that has some really great ties to today's society.

I really enjoyed the fact that Eve was not a special little flower who everyone loves and dotes on at all times, but is also not a hard core Katness Everdeen type character who kicks some butt, and scares everyone, while being emotionally unavailable. I found her very realistic, and it actually really broke the mold in that respect.

Ultimately, however, it did read like any number of first books in post apocalyptic dystopian worlds. Luckily the second books are always the best! ( )
