Publisher's Summary

In the harsh Northern Waste where human life is worth little, ice trucker Raina Bowen has learned to keep her eyes open and her knife close at hand. She's spent her life on the run, one step ahead of the megalomaniac who hunts her. All she wants is to stay out of trouble and haul her load of grain to Gladow Station—but trouble finds her in the form of a sexy stranger called Wizard. He has the trucking pass she needs, and she has to drag him out of a brawl with the very people she's trying to hide from in order to get it. She may have rescued him, but Raina's not foolish enough to see Wizard as anything close to helpless. He's hard and honed and full of secrets—secrets that may destroy them both. 

As they race across the Waste, trying to outrun rival truckers, ice pirates, and the powerful man bent on their destruction, Raina's forced to admit that trouble's found her. And this time, there's nowhere left to run.

Critic Reviews

"Edgy, steamy, action packed, and plotted with nail-biting tension." (Library Journal, starred review)

"Anyone looking for something different will find [Silver]'s steamy, sinewy universe great fun." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

"Eve [Silver] expertly fuses nonstop action and adventure; a cutting-edge, exceptionally inventive setting; and a terrific, take-charge, no-nonsense heroine in Driven, a fresh, fabulously fun futuristic romance." (John Charles, The Chicago Tribune)

Dystopian World

Definitely a Mad Max feel. Love the strong heroine who learned how to survive on her own. The storyline captivated me from the very beginning. Looking forward to more in this series!

Driven

I think this is a decent book but at the beginning I almost noped out. The storyline keep me engaged but it took a moment to get into it. The characters were interesting, some were more so than others. There was ups and downs with the emotions. Narration was will done.

Futuristic, apocalyptic story

When I selected this I did not realize that it was, what it was. I’m not a big fan of these type of stories. But this was engaging and I could be empathetic towards the characters. The romance between Raina and Wizard was unusual which is a plus in my book. I always love when there are two narrators. Mr. Grayson‘s performance was a little stiff but I think that was deliberate.

The perfect combination of brilliant writing and brilliant narration!

Ice Trucker Raina Bowen just wants to keep a low profile, be the first to deliver her load, collect her prize and get on with her life. It should have been simple. Then she met Wizard. Too bad Wizard doesn’t do simple. Driven is a futuristic thriller featuring a smart, sassy, kick a$$ heroine, a hero lacking in social graces, a cast of bawdy good guys, some evil not so good guys, rival truckers, and ice pirates! There is plenty of action, mystery, intrigue and oh yes delightful searing heat! The writing and narration are BRILLIANT! This story is set in the future, in a freezing, barren area of the planet. The writing is so clear, the narration so good, that I could both see AND understand the world the author created. The scene setting and dialogue, combined with the magnificent narration made me feel what the characters were feeling! The voicing and cadence used for the various characters really drove home certain aspects of the story. No spoilers, when you listen to the story, it will become very clear! It was stunning and really added authenticity to the overall feel of the story! My heart was in my throat as I got near the end, again no spoilers, but I had to really restrain myself from upping the speed to end my misery, I was THAT invested! I really loved this one! Five stars!

interesting and different

A high stakes game/race that turns out to be the ultimate high stake of life or death. Gripping, edge of your seat drama, and unique characters. Wizard is a worthy opponent and totally unpredictable and a sheer pleasure to watch in his element . I liked how both main characters grew throughout the story . Good conclusion. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrators did a great job bringing the characters and story to life.

original and entertaining!

the story was very interesting and engaging. the characters well written and likeable. the bad guy was really chilling. the narration was faultless and I must say, I cannot imagine other narrators in these roles. Lillian's acting is so realistic! and Vincent switched between parts so effortlessly! both absolutely brilliant!
