Publisher's Summary

When you're being hunted, who can you trust?
For the first time since she escaped from her school many months ago, Eve can sleep soundly. She's living in Califia, a haven for women, protected from the terrifying fate that awaits orphaned girls in The New America.
But her safety came at a price: She was forced to abandon Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. When Eve gets word that Caleb is in trouble, she sets out into the wild again to rescue him, only to be captured and brought to the City of Sand, the capital of The New America.
Trapped inside the City walls, Eve uncovers a shocking secret about her past - and is forced to confront the harsh reality of her future. When she discovers Caleb is alive, Eve attempts to flee her prison so they can be together - but the consequences could be deadly. She must make a desperate choice to save the ones she loves... or risk losing Caleb forever.
In this breathless sequel to Eve, Anna Carey returns to her tale of romance, adventure, and sacrifice in a world that is both wonderfully strange and chillingly familiar.

Great Book, Dumb Main Character...

What made the experience of listening to Once the most enjoyable?

I loved when they were making fun of a old teachers face that looks like a bull dog!

What other book might you compare Once to and why?

Delirium, Match, The Selection, & Divergent.

Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

Well I liked when she just read normal and not acted out voices. Her natural voice is beautiful.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Eve saw her friend walking into the all woman city Califia. I could imagine the joy of seeing a long lost friend.

Any additional comments?

This main character Eve is soo dumb... I don't understand why authors make characters dumb, maybe so the poor decisions they make lead into a new troublesome issue. At one point I just wanted to stop listening because of her dumb choice that puts her friend into harms way. Again I believe this character is like the girl form the movie Twilight... If you seen the movie, you understand the dumb choices the girl makes and you just wanna slap the stupid out of them. This book was written very well though. Some comedy and a ton of adventure. This book keeps you very interested and wanting more.I think anyone would like this book if you like Divergent. I would just think woman authors would want to make their main female characters to appear somewhat intelligent. I know men and woman think differently. But I believe to gain respect from men, maybe female authors should not portray woman as idiots.But again this is a wonderful book with that one only flaw.I can't wait for the 3rd book!
