Series: Eve Trilogy #3
Genre: Teen Paranormal Romance
Release Date: April 2, 2013
The Eve trilogy is yet another dystopian novel that follows life of a teen girl after some form of apocalypse. Based on reviews and other research I’ve done on it, the series strikes me as a watered down version of Partials (by Dan Wells) which is the one I’ve been raving about for the last couple of months. While that one focuses more on events and overall ideas, I think this one’s main focus is the love story. Book #1 is coming up soon on my TBR list, so I’ll be sure to post a review for it soon…
Here’s the overviews for the first two novels in case you’re like me and can’t manage to keep up on all the good books out there:
Overview: Where do you go when nowhere is safe? After a deadly virus wiped out most of Earth’s population, the world is a terrifying place. 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 bright future in 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 Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Caleb slowly wins her trust . . . and her heart. But when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.
Overview: When you’re being hunted, who can you trust? For the first time since escaping from her School, Eve can finally sleep soundly. She is living in Califia, protected from the terrifying fate that awaits orphaned girls in The New America in the year 2041. But she was forced to abandon Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at Califia’s gates. When Eve gets word that Caleb is in trouble, she sets out into the wild again to rescue him, only to be captured and brought to the City of Sand. Trapped inside the city walls, Eve uncovers a shocking secret about her past—and must confront the harsh reality of her future. In this breathless sequel to Eve, Anna Carey returns to her tale of romance, adventure, and sacrifice in a world that is both wonderfully strange and chillingly familiar.
