Sixteen years have passed since a deadly virus wiped out most of the Earth’s population. After learning of the terrifying part she and her classmates were fated to play in the rebuilding of New America, eighteen-year-old Eve fled to the wilds and Califia, a haven for women determined to live outside the oppressive rule of the king of New America. However, her freedom came at a price: she was forced to leave Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. Eve quickly learns that Califia may not be as safe as it seems and soon finds herself in the City of Sand and the palace of the king. There she uncovers the real reason he was so intent on her capture, and the unbelievable role he intends her to fill. When she is finally reunited with Caleb, they will enact a plan as daring as it is dangerous. But will Eve once again risk everything—her freedom, her life—for love?

Brimming with danger and star-crossed romance, and featuring a vivid dystopian landscape, this electrifying follow-up to Eve, which bestselling author Lauren Kate called “a gripping, unforgettable adventure—and a fresh look at what it means to love” is sure to appeal to fans who crave the high-stakes adventure of The Hunger Games and the irresistible love story of Romeo and Juliet.

FINALLY! The sequel to Eve by Anna Carey is in my grubby little hands. And if you read Eve, you know we were left with quite a cliffie, so you better believe I was shouting with joy when Jamie let me borrow her copy.

And oooh oooh oooh could this series be more enjoyable? I think not.

I don’t even want to tell you anything about this book because it was full of twists and turns and ups and downs and eeeek!

Hmm, what can I say? Caleb and Eve will continue to face major obstacles that threaten to keep them apart. Secrets will be revealed that go against everything Eve thought she knew about her past. And at the end, you will be screaming and/or tearing your hair out. But, like, in a good way.

So, um, yeah, when can I get my hands on book 3?! Dying over here!

    The first book was amazing. I’m now listening to the audio book before diving into this one. I need to refresh my mind a bit.
