My immediate reaction after finishing reading this was to post a tweet tagging the authors:

“Anyone else hate it when you’re reading a brilliant story, totally engrossed in it, desperate to know what happens next and you see those three dreadful words:

To be continued . . . .

Argh!!! Eve of Man by @TomFletcher and @MrsGiFletcher – I need the next two books now, please!!”

I still need those next books, please!

This is a dystopian story in which no girls have been born for fifty years, well, no girls except for Eve. For sixteen years she’s brought up in relative isolation in the Dome, away from contact with anyone other than a variety of older ladies who act as her mother figures and Holly, a holographic girl who is actually controlled by one of three young males, one of whom is a similar age to Eve. Now she’s sixteen and is going to be introduced to the three males who have been selected as potential mates for her . . . . She’s been compliant until now but with a future as a brood mare for the human race the only thing she has to look forward to for herself and any girls she gives birth to she starts to reevaluate her choices and expectations.

This is an enthralling read with great world building and plenty of drama. It is an action packed exploration of relationships, power struggles, personal choices and so much more. It has an engaging plot line, great characters and I didn’t want to put it down, it was a real page turner. Now I really can’t wait to read the sequels in this disquieting view of the future.

I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
