First Impressions: Eve was one of the first books I read and reviewed on our blog. At the time, I loved it. I would have considered it a teen romance kind of novel, but I still liked it. The premise of the story was interesting. The love interests where slightly over the top, but not obnoxious. And the story had real potential.

I couldn't wait for the sequel to come out. Eve left off with such a fun pseudo cliffhanger. What was this women's colony? What happened to Caleb? Where did the other chick go? What about this hunt for Eve? What about the child factory?

Plenty of questions went unanswered.

Characters & Plot: This is where Once picks up. A few months after Eve enters Califia, she runs off again, for her/their safety. She also wants/needs to find Caleb. And the book takes off from there. I don't want to discuss too much of the specifics of the storyline because I hate giving surprises away.

Caleb is reintroduced in this novel. We see him making a return, of course, as Eve's love interest. We also see Eve's friends making a bit of a return too. Not much has changed here. Once is full of new characters though.

We meet another interesting character with direct impacts to Eve. I really haven't decided if I love or hate him yet. We also get to meet the king. He is the typical story villain, although a bit more likable. And there are so many other characters introduced too. It would take forever to get through them all.

But these characters make for a twisting story. Once follows a different mood and atmosphere than Eve. Eve was all about discovering truth and survival. Eve is very gullible and naïve in the first book. She is still gullible in Once, but not so naïve.

First, let me reiterate again the utter idiocy about rich people needing to supply the goods, money and services. The king was able to gather around him several wealthy people who provided needed goods and services to start up the new Las Vegas utopia. With 98% of the country dead, many of the necessary goods were available for the taking. They were not needing MONEY or VEHICLES because 98% of this was now laying unclaimed and available for the taking. I could not believe my ears when the audiobook continued to harp on the division of people by their possessions. In the land of dwindling educated people, the only valuable people were those with skills. The engineers, the electricians, oil and gas workers, plumbers, machinists, doctors, utility workers are now at the top of the food chain in the land that the king built. The rich have nothing to contribute because 98% of the rich are dead and left all of their crap laying around for the taking.

It is all about location, location, location.

And the king chose the one of worst locations available to establish his empire, Las Vegas, Nevada. There were some good things about the location. There were tons of hotels in one centrally located area where he could make sure that people were near supplies. There was power from Hoover Dam. It was near several large refineries and deposits of oil. There was one main water supply, which he could control. The people were unable to easily leave once they were brought into Las Vegas because it was surrounded by a desert. It all sounds great! It was not a place easily attacked because it was in a desert. It was all good. Now what jobs were missing and never discussed in our desert utopia? What is the problem with having a desert utopia? The land was arid and rocky.

This book was SO much better than I was expecting! I love it when a book throws me completely off guard, and that's exactly what happened when I read Once, the much anticipated follow up to Eve by Anna Carey.

After a series of events gone wrong, Eve is now trapped in the City of Sand, at the mercy of none other than the King of New America. Here she discovers an unsettling secret about her past, and must try to come to terms with what this secret means for her future. It's up to Eve to do whatever she has to do to save the ones she loves.

Eve has definitely come a long way since I first met her in the previous book. She is no longer the sheltered, naïve young lady. Here we see a girl that has been through more than any girl should ever have to go through, and she's a survivor. She's also very strong and determined, and I found that to be so refreshing compared to the girl we first met. As if I thought I couldn't love Caleb more than I did in the previous book, I fell in love with him even more in this sequel. Unfortunately, we don't get to see him quite as much as I hoped, but the parts of the book that he is in are extra special. I adore the relationship between him and Eve.

We are also introduced to quite a few new characters in Once, and there are a few characters that you are going to love to hate. (I sure did, anyways.) A few of our favorite characters from the previous book make a comeback as well, and it was interesting as well as heartbreaking to see what had happened to some of them.

Once is filled with lots of different twists that will keep you guessing right up to the end. When I actually had time to sit down and read, I flew through the pages, just because I needed to know what was going to happen next.
