“Here's another post-apocalyptic book you don't want to miss. Imagine The Walking Dead meets androids or cyborgs. It was my second time to read a boo in a similar genre and amazed on how I was engrossed by the story. Aside from the further exploration on robots--which is a favorite science fiction topic among readers, it also discussed a dystopian theme.This helps in creating a new found world in the existing one and adds up to the excitement of the post-apocalyptic crisis. The plot was new and very unique to me despite the similar aforementioned themes. Moreover, it really fascinates me when these books show a possibility that the robots can have emotional capability. It is really a touching scene whenever they do. It is also amazing what fiction can explore and show us, from futuristic technologies to facilities. But like in the story, it also comes with a price.
With the characters, Eve is an amazing character. She was sometimes stubborn, rash, and bossy but she was very strong and she cares a lot. Everything she does is for Eden. She doesn't care if she was in danger as long as Eden survives. West is also my favorite. I love how he was all sorts. He can be serious and witness his depth, and at the same time, funny and a tease. He was dangerous in a way but you know he will protect you and that's what I like about him. His name is also a plus because I really like it. To be honest, I was routing for him for Eve but you have to find out who she'll end up with. ;) Avian is a nice name, too, but obviously I'm all for West. Bias, I know. But that's life. Haha. I kid. The characters showed the strength and vulnerability of people in such situation. I don't hate them whenever they've shown weakness especially the leaders because it happens. As long as they will be able to overcome and recover, they're good to go.
Although the ending showed some hope, it was not a strong cliff-hanger but it made me wonder how the story will continue and who or what will be the next step or challenge for the people of Eden? In any case, I'm still looking forward to the sequel and the new twists it brings.
I recommend this to Young Adult readers and those who love science fiction and dystopia.”
