    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.

    Story
    What did you like best about Eve? What did you like least?

    Carey built up an interesting world that I'd like to learn more about. The post plague politics and resistance are intriguing elements that don't get a lot of coverage in this first book of the series. Unfortunately, the point of entry is Eve, a character who refuses to take charge of her own agency at any point. She along with all the other young women left have been incredibly sheltered, but it irritates me no end that Eve seems intent on ceding all authority and decision making to anyone else, especially to the first boy she meets.


    What could Anna Carey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    While Eve had to start out weak, it would help if she actually grew and learned as the story continued. Maybe this happens later in the series, but she is such a aimless character by the end of book one, I'm not all that interested in what happens to her next.


    Do you think Eve needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I suppose it would be necessary to redeem Eve's character, if that is ultimately a goal.


    Any additional comments?

    The story moves along at a good clip, and the overall atmosphere created is engaging. There are several points where the story takes an interesting turn. I would have just preferred to follow any other character but Eve at each of those transitions.
