Waiting on Wednesday: Once (Eve #2)

Author: Anna Carey
Publisher: Harper Collins
Release Date: July 3, 2012

Sixteen years have passed since a deadly virus wiped out most of the Earth’s population. After learning of the terrifying part she and her classmates were fated to play in the rebuilding of New America, eighteen-year-old Eve fled to the wilds and Califia, a haven for women determined to live outside the oppressive rule of the king of New America. However, her freedom came at a price: she was forced to leave Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. Eve quickly learns that Califia may not be as safe as it seems and soon finds herself in the City of Sand and the palace of the king. There she uncovers the real reason he was so intent on her capture, and the unbelievable role he intends her to fill. When she is finally reunited with Caleb, they will enact a plan as daring as it is dangerous. But will Eve once again risk everything—her freedom, her life—for love?

Brimming with danger and star-crossed romance, and featuring a vivid dystopian landscape, this electrifying follow-up to Eve, which bestselling author Lauren Kate called “a gripping, unforgettable adventure—and a fresh look at what it means to love” is sure to appeal to fans who crave the high-stakes adventure of The Hunger Games and the irresistible love story of Romeo and Juliet

So after the terribly heart-wrenching cliffhanger Eve left me on I have been seriously looking forward to this novel! It ticks all my boxes for excellent novel. Well developed dystopian society, check. Love Story, check. Strong heroine, check. Now that July is getting closer I am nearly bouncing out of my seat waiting for this novel!

So what are you waiting on this wonderful Wednesday?

    The summary to this book is rather interesting. It doesn't hold my attention. But after reading your review I may have to rethink my position in terms of liking or not liking this series.
