Where do you go when nowhere is safe?

Sixteen years after a deadly virus wiped out most of Earth’s 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 she’s 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 Eve’s timeless story of forbidden love and extraordinary adventure. –Goodreads

My Opinion: I have to say that this was interesting.There were points that I really enjoyed about the book. The mystery of why the king wants her as well as the ways that she kept connecting to Caleb even throughout her fear. The plot was interesting in a way that keeps you reading. It’s fast paced. My favorite character had to be Arden though because she seems self assured and very confident even when she isn’t feeling like she is. Arden is a survivalist while Eve is a social butterfly I feel.

I definitely recommend for you guys to read this if you are looking for an interesting dystopian novel and series. I am disappointed in the ending though because I wanted more from Caleb and Eve instead of what actually happened.

Something that really surprised me was that, okay the fate of the other girls, I totally understand happening if the world needed to be repopulating the world and the king and all, but if there is a safe haven for women that the king knows about why isn’t that place attacked for the girls?

Overall: 4.75 out of 5
