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.
Once again, Anna Carey has managed to take me on that emotional roller coaster. She has such a gift! I didn't think ANYTHING could be better than Eve. If I had to sum up Once in a word it would be....bittersweet. The twists and turns that make up this amazing book will shock you as well as make your heart swell with love once again. If you are anything like me, you will also cry...several times, sometimes with the pure joy of a certain situation & others in just shock, anger & plain old hurt & even betrayal . This is one of those books that you can't wait to get to the end of yet you really don't want it to be over. Rise, book 3 in the Eve Trilogy is scheduled for April 2, 2013 & it sure seems like a million years away right now...
