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.

Loved It! But heartbroken! Must read!!!
This book is AMAZING!!!! It's constantly moving, so you never get bored.
Also, I'm a huge fan of this narrator for other books Tavia Gilbert has done (in fact, I found this book by looking for the narrator). Tavia Gilbert is probably the best narrator I've experienced so far. She doesn't read lines of a book, but sounds like she's reading a script or actually acting out the scenes herself. Her telling of the story is so natural.
The story is wonderful too! It's a great YA book and an interesting Dystopian.
I love the development of the relationships between Eve and Arden, as well as between Eve and Caleb. Neither seemed forced or sudden, but organic and natural instead.
I was definitely left heartbroken a couple of times in this book (don't want to give away spoilers). Tavia Gilbert's reading enhances that heartbreak with her abilities to really emphasize emotion in her voice. I wish the trilogy was completed (or at least book 2 was already out), because I really need resolution to my heartache.

I hate when I find a book that i absolutly love, and all i want to do is finish reading the rest of the books that go along with it, only to find out this is the first in the Trilogy! And that the others havent even came out. This book was Amazing. The time it took to "get started" didnt take too long, and i love the discription of the world eve lives in. Cant wat to see whats to happen next!

Doesn't compare with similar in genre
I was a bit disappointed in this novel. The main character simply isn't strong enough for you to really care as much as should. There are many better similar books out there.

I don't object to teenage fiction, I often quite enjoy it. This book however focuses on the antics of the most feeble individual and her feeble adventures.
As soon as we meet the 'hero' it's obvious she is going to fall for him in a feeble way. The descent into predictability was tedious.
