"Eve knew the stories of the Fall, of a time before she wandered into the colony of Eden, unable to recall anything but her name. She’s seen the aftermath of the technology that infused human DNA with cybernetic matter, able to grow new organs and limbs, how it evolved out of control. The machine took over and the soul vanished. A world quickly losing its humanity isn’t just a story to her though. At eighteen, this world is Eve’s reality.

In their Fallen world, love feels like a selfish luxury, but not understanding what it is makes it difficult to choose between West, who makes her feel alive but keeps too many secrets, and Avian, who has always been there for her, but is seven years her senior.

The technology wants to spread and it won’t stop until there is no new flesh to assimilate. With only two percent of the human population left, mankind is on the brink of extinction. While fighting to keep Eden alive, Eve will discover that being human is about what you will do for those you love, not what your insides may be made of. And even if it gets you killed, love is always what separates them from the Fallen."

What can I say other then this book rocked my socks off! I loved it. It is a type of book that once you start you can not put down. It grabs you and will not let you. As soon as you start reading, you fall in Eden fighting against the Fallen.

I adore this cover. I think it matches the book very well. After reading the first chapters I turned back to the cover thinking, yeah this is gonna be good. And I was right. As you begin this story, the reader is immerse into a world like no other, a world filled with survivors and plague that is killing mankind fast. As the reader, I really fell into the story line cause of the great elements describes in the story. Ms. Taylor's writing was excellent in describing the world to the reader and easy to read. I loved reading about the different characters life and how they live now.

The story line of the book is great. I had a fun time diving into the world and learning everything about it. The culture, the way the earth have change,the cities. Even the people in the book is great. One thing I love about reading is being able to feel the emotions of the characters. Ms. Taylor wrote the book so that the reader was right there, in every waking moment. I loved it. I felt excitement, happiness, anger, hurt, betrayal and most of all love.

I am a sucker for romance so when the opportunity presented itself in the book I was giddy I love the love interest in this book cause it was NOT a love triangle! Thank you God! I mean sometimes they work but I love how in this book Eve made her decision. There was no going back, confused, messed up girl.

Last is Eve. As the main character in this book, you fall in love with the girl. She is strong, confident, and oh no you didn't mess with me! She is like no other girl taking charge of what needed to be done. I really enjoyed watching her grow and learn many new things. She is my type of gal!

Eden is a great book about the earth ending timing destruction.There was loads of action, fighting, and death.There is new discoveries, secret revealed, and secrets made. I would love to see this book as a movie. I know it would be awesome!

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!
