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.
Seriously, why haven’t I read this book sooner!!!! I am captivated by such an amazing and unique dystopian book. Finally, something different. Something real. Something amazing!
Now what was so captivating about this book that I simply must gush. The plot. Handsdown, the plot. After reading the first chapter, I was intruigued. The second chapter, HOOKED! The endless possbilites of what Eve is facing left me giddy. I enojoyed this book so much, that I went right on to second book, reading them both in a matter of hours.
The love interest in this book is soo good. Beautiful and enticing, the love that is formed between the characters is perfect. I loved the stolen moments of peace and smiles. This love held so much more that friendship, but one that the readers know will last.
Overall the characters are so easy to get into. Eve is an likeable character who is naive at first, but learns quickly. She becomes strong and her growth is amazing. I simply adore every part of Eve’s adventure.
Eve is an amazing book. Nothing falls short but instead grabs the reader holding them in for more. More secrets. More running for your life. More survival. It holds everything that I want in a book and more. Eve is hauntingly beautiful and soooo good!
I give it 5 BITES!
Happy Reading!

    I had mixed feelings with this book, it started out captivating, but fizzled out at the end for me.

    The love interest sounds great! I love when there’s a friendship before the relationship! Great review! I might give this one a try. (:

    I really enjoyed Eve it surprised me and I agree I found the main character very like-able. I’m waiting for Once to come in at my library. I’m so jealous you got to read it already.

  5. I was debating on this one a while back. I’ve heard such good things about it, but for some reason just debated. Now I need to kick myself and just get that book! Thanks Savy!

    Oh wow – that’s interesting. I had only heard negative things about Eve. I have it but I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to give a go or not yet.
    I just might now.
