The first book of 2019 was Eve of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher. I had gotten this book as a present for Christmas and I was not disappointed. From page one I was hooked.
About the Book
Eve of Man is book one of a trilogy, where no girl was born for 50 years until Eve, the miracle, arrived. She is the saviour of humanity and must be safeguarded at all costs. Eve has been brought up in a tower, which the EPO (Extinction Prevention Organisation) built to support her every need, where she is happy and knows her destiny. That is until the lies and the secrets start to unravel.
I really enjoyed reading this book and not just because Eve’s family name is Warren which just also happens to be the same of mine. There was a lot of plot twists, some I predicated but there was a few unexpected.
I fell in love with both the main characters immediately. Usually I don’t really like the dual narrative, but I feel like this made the book and you can easily flow between Eve and Bram.
The ending left in a cliff-hanger with so many unanswered questions, I was so frustrated, and I will need to wait till the end of May 2019 until book two is released!
If I was asked to sum up Eve of Man I’d say it’s kind of like Maze Runner meets Hunger Games, both books and movies I really enjoyed.
Lastly, while reading I did think this book would make a brilliant movie, fingers crossed this happens!
