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.
I love how they show the Golden Gate Bridge because that is the place where Eve can escape to. She is leaving everything behind once she crosses over.
Not only was this part of the Pitch Dark Tour, this book we got from NetGalley. I had to buy it though once, I read it.

This was a fast paced book. Not a single boring part. The beginning starts with a letter from her mother, telling her goodbye and what the world has come to. There was a plague that came over a lot of people, and the vaccine only made it worse. Now, a new leader has come to rebuild the population, and a New America.

Eve, like a lot of orphan girls, is taken to school to learn arts and trades so they can share their knowledge to the world. Eve is the school’s top student. She’s smart, beautiful, and obedient. She never breaks the rules like her fellow classmate, Arden. That is until the day Arden escapes, telling Eve the true reason for the schools and what the student’s futures will be.

The new King of America wants to build the population. Eve sees the horrors on how he plans on doing so. Eve, being the treasured student, decides she doesn’t want this to be her future and runaways. Eve knows she won’t be able to survive long, out in the wild. The school taught their students the danger of the world, told the girls to stay away from men. Men are dangerous.

Eve finds some truth in the school’s lies, but there is one man that changes her mind. Caleb.

The story just never stopped with surprises. You read a slow part, where everything is calm, and then WHAM! Anna surprises you with a new danger lurking in the dark. Eve is being chased by the King’s men. Although she does learns that not everyone is dangerous. There are people who help Eve, even the bad girl Arden.

The last chapter was hard on me, and I can’t wait to read the sequel.

Eve is my favorite character but she’s tied with Caleb. Eve wants to stay away from Caleb because of what the school taught her. Caleb is such a jokester and caring. He takes care of Eve and Arden. It’s interesting to watch their relationship grow in the book.

Even though he’s not present in this book, the King has already sparked the hatred in me. I have a feeling that Eve is going to meet him sooner or later.
I wish I had a title or information about the sequel, but nope. So far, all is known is that Eve will be a trilogy. Also, the producers, of the Vampire Diaries, will be making Eve into a TV series. Hopefully, they won’t ruin it like some other shows. Find out more about the TV show |HERE|.
