*MILD SPOILERS AHEAD*
Imagine a grown woman, living in an incredibly dangerous Starship Troopers-esque disease-ridden world. It's a year after losing everything, but after finding a connection to people she can trust and let her guard down with again, she feels a maddening need to go around the world.
Yep. Cross the effng Atlantic. Because her dreams, nightmares (but only when she doesn't have naked guys sleeping skin to skin beside her) and PTSD tell her to do so.
When she could be the only woman left, and has felt firsthand the brutality of all that entails, chicas gotta do what shes gotta do.
So she hides on a boat, leaves the US, gets brutalized again, gets saved again by a guy she has only been a dick to, leaves him, hides out with a priest, and then she repeatedly disrespects his chastity vow, because her womb (no one talks/thinks/says anything like this in real life btw).
So, she convinces him that she has to do what she has to do, they get trapped, eventually her womb reawakens, she collects another dude, and when she's reunited with the other other dude...
I'm getting annoyed just retelling it.
The dude who literally has followed her around the world, she says, "Just one more question and then you can return to your arrogance..." Yes. This book is filled with pages like that, written in a way that's like nails on a chalkboard- disjointed, atonal, awkward, forced, and ridiculous. Like when she needs to rub up more naked dudes for their Yang.
Seriously. Their Yang gives her strength to fight and maintain control.
Skin to skin contact, folks. Its powerful stuff.
True story? I gave up at 89%
That's right. Eighty-nine freakin percent because it was that insufferable, and I just wanted it to be over already. I'm sorry, I never do that, but I've been picking up and putting down this book for months and I just wanted to be put down. For good.
Proceed at your own risk, I'd recommend this to people who have no disbelief to suspend.
Dead of Eve is the first book in the Trilogy of Eve. This was definitely not what I was expecting to find once I started reading but I’m so glad I did. There’s not a simple, single genre to describe this book. It was an explosion of so many incredible elements. This brought a mix of sci-fi, horror, suspense, paranormal and dark romance to blow your mind.
I was on edge all the way until the end. I couldn’t for the life of me put this book down. I thought I was gonna take a few days to finished but once I got into the story I just HAD TO finished. Dead of Eve is completely action pack and the mystery was nail bitingly good.
I completely recommend to go in blind but if you would like to have an idea of the plot here’s what you can get from this story. The world was hit by a virus that has diminish human population. Killing all the children and woman and Eve is the last woman standing. This last 10% of human kind are struggling to survive and Eve is a posible key to understanding this virus and maybe a cure. All the infected male become “aphid” a mutated insect like creature while the infected woman become “nymphs”. Now Eve needs to fight both human males and this creature to survive.
Eve character was A MAYOR badasschick. A force to be reckoned with. This woman had some incredible fighting skills, immunity from this man eating virus and 3 men that do ANYWAY to protect her.
“𝙈𝙮 𝙣𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙢𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙨 𝙙𝙞𝙙𝙣’𝙩 𝙠𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙢𝙚. 𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙟𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙧𝙚𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙙 𝙢𝙚 𝙬𝙝𝙮 𝙄 𝙬𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙙𝙞𝙚.”
This book can definitely become a hit as a movie. I could definitely see myself with popcorn in hand, first in line on premier day at the cinema. Absolutely brilliant. Now on to book 2 because I’m super curious of what’s next for Eve and human kind.
By: Pam Godwin
I’ve been a fan of Pam Godwin’s for a couple years, when I first read her second book, Beneath the Burn and was hooked. Dead of Eve was her debut novel, but not my usual reading genre, in the apocalyptic/paranormal/sci-fi romance. I finally read it and it absolutely DOES NOT read like a debut novel. This book was well-thought out, plotted and executed meticulously.
The book starts out in the middle of an outbreak of some sort that has caused countless deaths and that transforms humans into a new type of species called aphids. Aphids are humans that were bitten or contracted the virus and turn into bug/insect/human hybrids that have lost all their human qualities like being able to think or feel but still walk upright. They are kind of like zombies, but not. I almost see them like the alien on the movie Alien Vs. Predator.
Evie is our heroine and is the last human woman alive, at least that she or her husband Joel know of. Joel has trained Evie in hand-to-hand combat, weaponry and survival. They have lost their children to the virus and have been focused on survival ever since. But they eventually have to leave the safe haven of their home because of the aphids. This sets them on a course that will change their lives forever.
As it turns out, there is a phenomenon with Evie and why she is the only woman to have not contracted the virus and has appears to have some “extra” abilities when it comes to fighting off the aphids. Not only does Evie have to watch out for and protect herself from aphids, but also human men. Some of those men are desperate to have a woman since there are none. Some also don’t trust her because she is a woman and women were originally the ones to carry the virus & then bite & infect men. She does take time to heal and meets a few trustworthy people along her road.
Her travels are driven by gut instinct and visions of her dead children. While she is reluctant to follow them, they have never steered her wrong. She picks up guardians along the way who believe in her, trust her and want to be there with and for her, who are willing to lay down their lives to protect her.
There are sad, happy, devastating, funny and sexy times in this book. It is hard to slip this book into just one genre. It’s post-apocalyptic, paranormal, sci-fi, horror and romance. Some may think it odd to put this in the romance category, but there is lust, romance & love. Thankfully this book didn’t end on a cliffhanger, though it easily could have, but leaves you at a resting moment & wanting more of this story. The sequel, Blood of Eve, will be released 10/29/2015, with the third book slated for late 2016/early 2017.

I’m pretty sure I could hear every feminist shouting hurrah for this book. The dead of Eve takes place after a virus hits the world that turned humans into insect like creatures, called the Aphids. A muslim extremist group had apparently taken responsibility for developing it and releasing it thus declaring chemical warfare on the world. The result of this being that as little as 10% of the population has survived, one being the only woman, Evie. There seems to be an underlying reason that Evie has survived, she moves like the aphids and the feeling I get is she is connected to them on some basal level. To me its a bit like The walking Dead with extra steps. Evie spends a stretch of time with the Lakotas tribe, and three men in particular are in complete in awe of her. They want to protect her until their last breath. Until this point any man Evie had come into contact with had simply wanted to either hurt her or debase her. She has gone through an absolute hurricane of emotions, both psychological and physical. This for really highlighted just why the men wanted to protect and care for her. She had lost everyone she loved in her life, I think if the shoe was on the other foot I would have simply wanted to end it all, especially knowing what the world was inhabited with now.
Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.
I did find some of the dialogues between Evie and the men a fair bit cheesy. She obviously was the most beautiful woman in the world because guess what? She is the only woman in the world. When I first opened this book and had read the synopsis I was envisioning a high level of sexual content. Afterall, it was the end of the world, men wanted her and to be honest Evie was a bit of a sex addict. The sex scenes weren’t in every chapter (thank god) but the scenes were really hot when they did occur. Just as a disclaimer there was scenes of rape, incest and taboo sex with M/M and F/M. Right…insert drum roll here. This book lost stars for me with certain content that left me feeling really uncomfortable and that isn’t an easy feat for me. There were several racial undertones that got me quite angry. I just felt the underpinning of the muslim extremists was unnecessary and I did just want to shout Why at the book. I don’t want to give too much away if you do want to read the book but there were other issues that were just like WTF? It was a good read, writing was gritty and cleverly written, it was fast paced and the chapters were filled with plenty of action and drama to keep you reading well into the night. I’m not sure if I will continue with series. I like that the author thought out of the box with her plot but possibly this is just a story I just don’t get.
Let everything you do be your religion and everything you say be your prayer.
It’s a brutal tale of survival and tragedy.
where a woman has to rise above her grief and play the hand she's been dealt.
This was unrelentingly intense, remorseless and savage and at times it brought me to my knees and had me sobbing like a baby.
The pain, misery and torment the unfairness of it all and the depravity of what people are actually capable of when you peel back the layers of civility and expose the rotten carcass.
In Evie’s case, this journey showcased her courage and humanity.
Her sheer will to survive and what she will do to accomplish this surviving by any means necessary.
She is such a strong and capable individual and thanks to her husband has mad survival skills that will help keep her breathing in this new apocalyptic world.
Along this path, Evie has been forced to travel there are still some good individuals left that provide her with a sort of hope to offset the many that don’t.
So this is a hard one to actually classify and pin down It crosses so many boundaries and doesn’t define itself.
There’s also a deep spiritual undertone to all this and that’s probably the only thing I was slightly unsure of initially.
This went places I wasn’t expecting had some fantastic characters the husband Joel, the priest Rourke also Evie’s savage watchdog Jessie and Michio.
Got to say though my favourite was definitely the priest he had all the best lines and I bloody adored him.
This really was a fabulous adventure full of unexpected twists that enthralled me from the second I picked it up, highly recommended.
So this was my first read in one those genres and I loved it, it will encourage me to try new reads all the time.
This one see's Eve the last woman on earth after an out break of a virus by Muslim extremist trying to make the perfect race.
There is something about Eve that helps her survive her children and every child, along with every other women and a few men.
The world has been infected with giant mutated bugs called aphids.
So when Eve and her husband seeks refuge in her fathers land, tragedy strikes not only having to come through what happened, but also the death of her husband. Eve is lost for a while unsure what to do, where to go, when she finds things meant for her in eventuality of her husband not surviving, this gives her life purpose again.
This see's Eve encounter her first guardian in a Lakota warrior Jesse. Eve spends a year healing with the help of the Lakota people who have survived. Eve and Jesse have a standoffish relationship, but they're connected notheless and Eve fights the connection, until Eve decide it's time to go. This is where she hides on a cargo ship bound for England.
In England Eve meets a priest by the name of Roark, her second guardian. They fight side by side against the aphids. Roark shows Eve how to love again and shows her faith. They decide to travel to Iceland looking for Shard to help with virus outbreak.
Before they could make it they're intercepted by the Drone and his aphid army. The Drone is the one who mastermind the virus and takes captured Eve and Rourke to Malta. This is where he has his Doctor run tests on Eve to see why She has survived, but Michio the doctor is Eve's third guardian and he's protecting her from the Drones evilness.
Eve has guidance throughout by the spirt of her children trying help figure out and help her survive. So when Eve escapes with the help of her three guardians, we find out that it's Eve's genetics that's keeping her alive.
Eve is a bad-assed fighting heroine who survives so many obstacles thrown in her way on the battle to find out answers. She's helped out by her 3 guardians,all United to help her survive by any means.
We are still left with questions of what is going to happen now they've escaped the evil Drone. With the this being a trilogy I'd expect these to be answered within the next 2 books, I'm thoroughly intrigued to find out what happens next and what the ending will be.
I was reluctant to how I'd feel about reading this genre, but I'm glad I did, it pulled me out of my comfort zone and I really enjoyed it. If you're hesitant about reading this kind of genre I'd say go for it.
