The city of New Eden is cleared, but it won’t stay that way forever. The Bane continue to advance in horrific ways that will wipe humanity from the face of the Earth. A storm is coming, one none of them could have dared imagine.

When a group of outsiders come to the city, everyone is on edge. They have too many questions and not enough answers about where they are from or what they want. Just because they are human doesn’t mean they can be trusted.

Eve made a choice–one that could have deadly repercussions. Desperate hearts bring about desperate actions. Now she must make another decision as her world continues to crumble: come to terms with who she really is, or risk her sanity. She thought she had unlocked all the secrets from her past, but there are truths still buried that leave her questioning what is real and what is not.

It really surprised me when I ended up liking book 1 EDEN as much as I did. I was really excited to read more about Eve and the other characters from the series. 

I hate giving away spoilers so I will stick to my feelings on some things without giving away details. It was extremely sad to read what Eve was put through for some of the book. I don't know how she was strong enough to get through it but I am glad it didn't change her as a person.  I loved the addition of one character in particular. They will be a great asset to Eve's allies. I was shocked at some of the information that was revealed, disgusted with characters that I thought were on Eve's side and more in love with Avian then I was in book 1. There is plenty of action, tons of twists and situations that will keep you on your toes at every turn.

The ending definitely has me wondering what is going on. I can't wait to get my hand on book 3 THE EVE. 

I gave it 4/5 stars


  1. I really liked this one. She draws great character sketches (I think anyway!) Motivations are slowly revealed and we find out why some people act the way they do.

  2. I just finished The Bane and cannot wait to read this installment. Thanks for sharing :)


Thanks for stopping by =)
