Book Description

5 Nov 2011 Eve Trilogy
Where do you go when nowhere is safe? Sixteen years after a deadly virus wiped out most of Earths population, the world is a perilous 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 future as the teachers and artists of 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 shes ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Arden, her former rival from school, and 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. In this epic new series, Anna Carey imagines a future that is both beautiful and terrifying. Readers will revel in Eves timeless story of forbidden love and extraordinary adventure. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

By I Read, Therefore I Blog VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Eve's an orphan living in a world decimated by a plague and where America's governed by a king. Now 18, Eve's the Valedictorian of her graduating year in an all-girls school. She's been taught about art, history and how the only man she can trust is the King and dreams of moving to the City of Sand and becoming an artist.

On graduating night, fellow student Arden tells her that the school's real purpose is to turn the girls into breeders who'll be kept perpetually pregnant and comatose to help rebuild the population. A disbelieving Eve watches Arden escape, but when she later discovers the truth for herself, she realises that she too has to flee and makes for the refuge of Califia, meeting up with Arden on the way.

When Caleb, a hunter who lives in a boy-only commune offers to help, the girls don't want to trust him but have little choice with the King offering a reward for Eve's capture. The more time Eve and Caleb spend together, the more Eve finds herself falling for him but circumstances build to make her choose between love and her life ...

Anna Carey's YA dystopia, the first in a trilogy, has an interesting premise but lacks a convincing world and relies on contrivance to keep the plot moving.

Eve's been raised to be passive but I found it frustrating that while she wants to learn the truth, she's consistently reluctant to believe what she's discovered. She fails to ask questions that she should ask, does incredibly stupid things and when given the opportunity, she doesn't try to learn the survival skills that she knows she needs, preferring to let others look after her.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Very Weak Dystopian Romance 23 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
If I had to describe Eve in one word, I'd probably choose 'Watery'. The idea is very good, a great idea for a Dystopian but it never really delivers. It definitely has it's good points but I found quite a few things I didn't like about it.

Eve is a pretty weak character and I never really 'got' her. I didn't understand why she disobeyed the rules of her school, considering she's a model student, has lived there a very long time and knows of no reason why she shouldn't trust them. She's been brought up to believe that boys are basically savages, only after one thing but of course, almost as soon as she meets Caleb she's all, 'Ooh, my face is near his chest!' Honestly, this chick has a chest fetish.
The other characters are stronger, with a lot more substance which is why I continued reading. Arden should have been the main character, as she has a much stronger voice and she's a lot tougher emotionally. Plus, she has the mentality of a tough Dystopian chick. I actually got to know her character, that she likes playing pranks on people and she's easily annoyed.
Caleb was mostly cardboard hottie but with a few redeeming qualities, mostly his past. Won't say too much (Spoilers) but his past is definitely intriguing.

The story is almost as weak as our main character. The idea is that most of America has been wiped out after a Plague (no specific details about that) and now wherever Eve is living is ruled by an Evil King. Who uses the school girls to breed lots of babies that will become citizens (or slaves) of his Empire. Eve is caught up in it all and chooses to escape. Her and Anden end up living in a sort of underground bunker for a while with a gang of kids I could only describe as the Lost Boys. Guess who's Wendy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing start to the new amazing series! 2 Mar 2012
By sandra
Format:Paperback
Wow! This book is just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! i absolutely love it! It was so astonishing in fact, that i have read it in 1 day! i just couldn't put it down. I was really hooked from the start to the very end.

Everything was described really well, especially the charecters and the settings. There were many laughable and adventure moments/scenes that made me lauth out loud, and also many sad moments that made me want to cry.

The ending left me breathless and wanting more. it was so dramatic and sad! I'v really enjoy reading Eve and i honestly think that everyone who loves adventure and romance/love books will love this book as well.

I definitely recommand this book for everyone. And belive me, when you'll start reading Eve you won't be able to stop.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read 2 April 2012
By RM Brown VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A virus has wiped out most of the world's population and girls are brought up in schools where they are protected from the outside world. Growing up in one of these schools, Eve learns the awful truth about the school and their plans for her future on the bight before her graduation. She flees the school and starts a long journey to find somewhere safe to survive.

I really enjoyed Eve. I love dystopian stories and this one certainly did not disappoint. It's non-stop fast-paced action with well written, likeable characters. I read Eve in one sitting and can't wait for the next book in the Eve trilogy. A great book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read, but could have been better 2 Mar 2012
By PD VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I love a good dystopian novel. This book however was not as good as I would have hoped. There was so much potential in the book because the plot was thought-provoking and could have been thrilling.

Eve has grown up in a girls boarding school since her mother died and left her an orphan. Most of the population was wiped out by the epidemic that killed her mother. The night before she graduates Eve learns a terrible secret (no, there are no vampires!) about what the school intends to do with all her and her classmates. She runs away with the aim of getting to Califa, a place where they help people like her.

Along the way she meets Caleb, a kind and good looking hero who helps Eve. My biggest problem with the book was their relationship. I felt that it just developed out of nowhere and I really did not feel their chemistry until the last quarter of the book. Also, Eve as a character was very annoying at times, a bit too pathetic at times and then reckless and fearless at others.

The author has attempted to tackle some really interesting issues that could face a society recovering from a a huge population fall, but I felt that at times in the book adult themes were too watered down.

The end is a cliff hanger and I might read the next book if I read good reviews about it but I don't think that it would be on my Pre-order list.
