ARC Review: Eve by Anna Carey
Release Date: Oct. 4th/11.
Galley from publisher
Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:
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.
WOW! I freakin LOVED this book. I read it all in one sitting. It had everything I love in a book- action, ROMANCE, suspense (the list could go on all night). Word of warning to the faint of heart. This is a somewhat gruesome/graphic read- the heroine is surrounded by violence.
Eve and Caleb are perfect for each other and Caleb is truly a knight in shining armour. The romance between these two is sweet (not incredibly steamy) but I think the build-up between these two is genuine, considering Eve's upbringing.
Warning to readers! Keep the tissues handy because this book had me spilling tears a few times- especially at the end. All I can say is thank God that it's a trilogy- cause I couldn't stand the thought of knowing this was how things would end.
If you love a healthy combination of romance and action in your YA reads than be sure to pick up Eve. You will not be disappointed. I know I wasn't!
