The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, and the horrifying fate that awaits her.
First of I want to say that this book was not by any means a bad book. It just couldn’t hold my interest. I read the book and thought that it has great potential and I will be checking out the finished copy to see if it is any different. Also, I feel that maybe at this time the book might not have been what I was in the mood for. I just felt that through most of the book it was just running in circles. I will say that my friend thought the book was amazing and we usually like the same things so like I said before I will read the finished copy and see if I feel differently. I do believe this series has the potential to be really good so I will read the second book regardless of the first..
As far as characters go, I loved the little boys Benny and Silas. I also thought the fact that Silas was running around in a tutu was hilarious. My favorite character by far was Caleb. I loved the depth of the character and the way he interacted with the other characters. I hope to see more characters like him emerge in the future of this series.
I hope you give the book a try to and let me know how you feel about it.
