Anyone who knows me knows that Giovanna Fletcher is my favourite author. I really loved the first instalment of this series and this second one really didn’t let me down.
*MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*
Eve is the last girl on earth.
For the last sixteen years, Eve has been a prisoner. Guarded by the Mothers. Trapped by her fate. Watched by the world.
Until she took her chance, and escaped.
Eve finally has the freedom she has wanted for so long, and with Bram she has the love. But both come at a price. In this dangerous new world beyond the Tower, the regime are only ever one step behind. And together with the desperate rebel group fighting against them, Eve has found herself in more danger than she ever could have imagined.
With everything stacked against them, can Eve and Bram survive?
From the second Eve dramatically jumped from the tower at the end of the last book I was desperate to find out what happens next and The Eve Illusion did not disappoint!
The freevers believe that ‘the deep’ is a safe residence for now to conceal Eve.
Eve however, feels like she has swapped one prison for another, having to stay underground to ensure her safety. What is the point in escaping if she still isn’t free to live her life?
After discovering her father is being held prisoner in the tower, after going in to save her, Eve begins to rebel. She refuses to accept his life as a sacrifice so is determined to save him.
The second book is far more menacing and sinister than the first. Characters show their true colours and more hidden motives of the EPO come to light.
Questions that were left unanswered in the first book were all tied up in the second instalment.
The cliffhanger ending, while not as “WHAT?!” as the first, still makes you want the next instalment sooner rather than later.
Let me know if you have read this or Eve of Man and let me know what you thought of it!
