I requested this book through NetGalley knowing this is exactly the kind of book that keeps me awake at night. I love adventure, fantasy, end of the world, girl facing the world, vulnerability and strength. This book has it all!!! I feel like the review who's answer is only two words - LOVED IT!
Eve is such a wonderful well-rounded character who is content with her life even though she cannot remember anything before she was found and brought to camp. She has a routine and friends, but she doesn't have to need or want anything. Life is simple. Til West comes along and ruins it all. West is found beaten and battered and containing a pull from Eve that makes her feel things she has never felt before. She likes what she feels with West, but the closer she gets to him the farther she gets from herself.
Will she be able to maintain the solidity that she has felt for years or will she give in to temptation?
Eve is also fighting The Bane, the machine driven virus that stole the bodies from the humans by just one touch. She is strong and able to keep up with the men. She holds her own, but she doesn't let anyone see her vulnerability. Til West.
Oh my I would love to tell you more, but you really have to read this book. Anyone who continuously is pulled in the fantasy and adventure books will love this.
Second book in the Eden Trilogy will be out June of this year!!
Now I must go find the other books by Keary Taylor!!
Before the Evolution there was TorBane: technology that infused human DNA with cybernetic matter. It had the ability to grow new organs and limbs, to heal the world. Until it evolved out of control and spread like the common cold. The machine took over, the soul vanished, and the Bane were born. The Bane won't stop until every last person has been infected. With less than two percent of the human population left, mankind is on the brink of extinction.
Eve knows the stories of the Evolution, the time before she wandered into the colony of Eden, unable to recall anything but her name. But she doesn't need memories to know this world is her reality. This is a world that is quickly losing its humanity, one Bane at a time.
Fighting to keep one of the last remaining human colonies alive, Eve finds herself torn between her dedication to the colony, and the discovery of love. There is Avian and West – one a soldier, one a keeper of secrets. And in the end, Eve will make a choice that will change the future of mankind.
The Bane is The Terminator meets The Walking Dead with a heart-twisting romance.
Previously published as Eden, due to reader demand it has been revamped and rereleased as The Bane: book one in The Eden Trilogy.
