This is where we really get to know and love Eve. She summarily kicks butt in pretty much every area of her classes, including science, logic, and ethics. She becomes a favorite of the teacher, engages in complicated discussions of reason with him,and is so engrossed by her studies that she spends her free time in the library, reading anything she can get her hands on and sketching out new scientific theories and the like.
This book was a great read for the "girl power" part of me. The hero, Adam, falls in love with Eve because she is so smart and enthusiastic about learning new things. Of course he is attracted to her looks, but he really gets excited when she makes some brilliant observation about how to conduct electricity or something. That's my kind of man.
I did find myself wishing, at times, for a greater connection to Eve's desires, feelings, and motivations. The novel is written in a pretty distant third-person narration, which can make it hard to feel very close to any one character, and I wanted more intimacy with her at times. I also wanted to see some higher stakes eventually - there is really no impossible choice presented to Eve, and sometimes I think she acted in a certain way just because she thought she probably should, making her life way more difficult for herself than it really had to be.
That said, the story was still compelling enough that I HAD to find out how it ended, and ignored my own writing (not to mention children, husband, and housecleaning) so that I could plow through from start to finish in less than 24 (precious weekend) hours. I couldn't put it down.
If you're looking for a sweet, light read about the power of love and confidence in yourself, Cargon is a perfect choice. I would even feel comfortable giving this book to a girl, maybe 6th grade and up, to show her that brains are even more attractive than beauty. (There is a bunch of kissing but not much more.)
Even though it doesn't end with the "happily ever after" you'll be salivating for after you get attached to these characters, you can close the book honestly believing that, in this story at least, true love will conquer all. That's great news because I hear Kimberly has a sequel in the works. I'll be buying up the next one as soon as it comes out to see what happens with Eve and the gang.
I also appreciated all the subplots. One of my favorites was reading about the questions she discussed daily with the Ernst. Not only were they thought-provoking questions, outside of the story, but they also provided a vital element to the plot in the beginning of the story. I thought this not only genius, but I looked forward to thinking through each one myself.
All of this, the world, the plot lines, they lead to great character building as well. While they were not overly complex characters, they were very well fleshed out. I was able to watch them grow with each challenge as their emotions were well portrayed in actions.
Oh,and from the beginning I was hooked as well because I love forbidden love. And while this element changed, it evolved into a romantic suspense which again, kept me reading, I'm excited to read more in this series, to find out where the author takes the characters next.
