Dystopian fiction, science fiction, young adult, fiction.
In a world where practically all women have died out and the existing women are kept away, Eve, the first female born in fifty years is welcomed into the world. Eve must remain pure and trained, expected to renew the human society. At the ripe age, she has to choose a suitor to repopulate the society, hopefully with more girls. There is trouble along the way, making Eve choose between her destiny or forging her own path.
I found this novel interesting at first, then disturbed that this novel is marketed towards the youth, meaning teenagers. The idea is great for maybe the older audience and the protagonists could be older, but the way the two authors wrote the novel and had prepared the plot was insufficient. Anyways overall, I will not be reading this novel any time soon. Storytelling should be taken seriously and creating a plot is not a walk in the park because a writer must create art with consideration of all elements. This novel lacked a lot of elements and seemed inconsistent with details.
