Publication Date: May 2018
My Rating: ✹✹✹✹
“Against all odds, she survived. The first girl born in fifty years. They called her Eve…
All her life Eve has been kept away from the opposite sex. Kept from the truth of her past. But at sixteen it’s time for Eve to face her destiny. Three potential males have been selected for her. The future of humanity is in her hands. She’s always accepted her fate.
Until she meets Bram.
Eve wants control over her life. She wants freedom. But how do you choose between love and the future of the human race?”
“I guess reality is just the world with which we are presented.”
I was sceptical.
It’s such a hyped up novel by two celebrities. Of course I was sceptical.
But the plot had me intrigued, and that’s not something I can pass up. Plus, I adore Tom and Giovanna Fletcher. They are the ultimate power couple, and I can’t deny that I’m a little envious of them writing a novel together. That is goals right there. So obviously, I bought the book.
And I enjoyed it. I really did. It has so much potential and I’m intrigued to see where it goes in the next two novels. Yep, it’s a trilogy! I didn’t know this going into it.
It follows the POV of Eve, the first female born in 50 years and the ‘saviour’ of the human race, and Bram, a boy who has known Eve almost all his life and works very closely with Eve (without Eve’s knowledge – I won’t include spoilers). I have to say, I love both Eve and Bram. I’m not sure why in particular that I do, I just think Bram is a total sweetheart and he has a genuine soul.
Whilst you really feel for Eve, she’s a naïve young girl trying to come to terms with how her life has played out, and what will happen to her in the future. The more the book goes on, the more she finds herself and learns about the ‘world’ created around her.
The two POV’s were really gripping and helped you get a feel for the characters and the world around them – you got to see two completely different realities of life inside the Dome, which made the whole novel seem all the more realistic.
I do enjoy a good YA dystopian novel, and this one did not disappoint. I would 100% recommend, in fact I’m lending it to my work friend tomorrow! Really cannot wait to see how this plays out, a well deserved 4 stars.
