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 really wish this would have been more enjoyable. I liked the idea of the story. It's basically a good strong story but the girl drove me crazy. I understand she didn't grow up knowing "caution" and she was extremely sheltered and lied to. BUT there's just some things that are common sense, or you fear for your life enough to not make a dumb decision. I feel like there could have been other ways to make drama and suspense without this girl, Eve, making such dumb decisions.
I may listen to the next book just to see what happens. By the end she is a much more likeable character and I'm interested to see if she continues to get a backbone and some sense.
I think more suspense because it was way too predictable for me.
I would probably give it a try only if her books going to to be on a huge sale. I wouldnt waste my credit on it.
I wouldn't cut anything , but i would enhance certain parts to make it more interesting.
I love a good murder mystery or any novel where good overcomes evil. Two of my favorite authors are Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker.
Although written for a young adult audience, I found the plot and characters developed enough to hold my interest. There are some solid moral viewpoints that have me wondering where the author is heading with this series. At least I'm hoping there will be a continuation.

For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
Seriously I thought this was going to be an interesting book when I first started out plus it was an AR (accelerated reader) book so I gave it a chance. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING? Since when do we want our kids reading about ppl killing each other? You have the adults who are in charged of building a new world trying to catch all the girls but Eve herself they desperately want just to impregnate her so the King of this new world can finally have an air of his own. They send all the girls to "school" just to strap them down to beds on the day of "graduation" and impregnate them. All the lil boys are basically slave workers. When the kids try to run for freedom they shot them down like they are garbage or a rabid dog to be put down? REALLY?! WTH?
further more the story itself did not flow. You don't see the "love" grow start or hell even really ignite between Eve and Caleb but all of a sudden they are in love and on the run together.......(when and were did this happen)? Eve goes from believing all men are evil to head over hills in love in the space of a second. There was never any description of the people we read about so we are pretty much left with having to wonder just what these ppl look like? Caleb had never been in school like Eve has but he seems to know awhole lot more then Eve ever does.
There was so many things wrong in this book I could spin hours telling you what all I found wrong, but I will leave it at this is not for all and I REALLY DO NOT THINK YOUNG KIDS/PRE TEENS should read this book.
If I was listeneing with someone that had not heard it before- I do not usually re- read things
