Eve (The Eve Trilogy #1)

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.

(MY THOUGHTS)     5   STARS!!!!!
  I love, love, love this book! When you read it, you will understand why all the loves. Eve is a beautiful Dystopian story. It’s about firsts, forever, sacrifice, unconditional love, and Eve growing from a naive girl who has believed lies of what she’s been taught, into a young women, who discovers her own truth for herself. And about true friendship. You’ll definitely need tissues when you read this one.

Eve is eighteen, and has lived a secluded life from the outside world. But she’s a strong and courageous girl, and she’s smart, even if she has been taught one way her whole life. She has enough courage to find the truth for herself, when the one person she hates tells her it’s all a lie. I really liked Eve. She’s not a shallow girl. Anna Carey wrote Eve's character perfectly. Caleb is also prefect. I love this gorgeous, sensitive, protective, kind-of-cocky, fun guy. Caleb and Eve are made for each other. Where Eve is naive, Caleb is worldly, and there are a lot of laughs and tears with these two. The love between them is so tender and intimate, also strong and bold.

This is one trilogy I wish I found out about after Anna Carey had written all three books so I could a just read all at one time. That’s how much I didn't want this book to end. The cliffhanger with Eve and Caleb had me in tears. I so love, love, love The Eve Trilogy, and I highly recommend it as a must read!

  1. I have been so undecided about this. I keep changing my mind if I am going to read it. I was but then I have heard it had crazy demented themes like girls being treated horribly. I had enough of that with Wither and Glow so I don't know if I can continue.
