EVE Book 1

by Anna Carey

Property Of The King!

She was old enough too remember a time before the schools. A time when people had their own homes, where men and women, boys and girls lived together in society. She was too young however to remember a time before the plague, before fear, survival and death were the only constants. But the one thing she would never forget was her mother, how much her mother loved her and how much she loved her back.

She was promised a future, after school she was promised a life of training, of learning, before moving to the prosperous City Of Sand. But the shining future she was promised was a lie, a fact she discovered only just in time to save herself, but at the cost of her friends. Alone, beyond the fences facing scavengers, wild animals and the Kings guards she sets out for Califia, the only place that is curtain to be safe. But reaching Califia will come at a great cost.

Eve may have been valedictorian and a shining example to other girls at her school, but she is still only a seventeen year old, naive to the way thing really are and the true nature of men, women and the world around her. As a society built on the labour of orphans, Eve, an orphan herself, runs from a horrific future only to discover nowhere is safe for her unless she is willing to leave behind those that she cares for. A new dystopian series of survival, betrayal, sacrifice and love.
