“I am a symbol. But before I was a representation of hope. Now I stand for defiance.”
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.
Firstly, I want to say thank you to Netgalley for sending me an early E-ARC of The Eve Illusion. I was so so excited to receive this as I loved Eve of Man so much and it ended on such a cliffhanger that I just needed to know what happened next.
I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED, this book was SO worth the wait. It was one of those books that I finished and I wanted to immediately pick it back up and read it all over again. I will say if you read this book be prepared to be left hanging YET AGAIN. Seriously, Gi & Tom are brutal when it comes to ending their books. I don’t know how I’m going to wait to read the next instalment I need to know what happened.
I love the characters in this book, those characters that we learnt to love in Eve of Man return. The stakes are higher, but the character development continues. I didn’t think I could love these characters anymore than I already did, especially Bram and Eve but oh my god I love them so much more now. They are such complex, wonderful, strong, loveable characters and I just want more and more from them please!
The plot develops in such a complex and wonderful way. I really enjoyed seeing the authors expand on the plot that they had already built the foundations for. It has been developed so well and in a way that has definitely satisfied the questions that I had from the previous book. I will say, this isn’t a spoiler, that one of the worlds in particular that we are introduced to I would have liked to know a little bit more so I could put part of the plot into a little bit more perspective. However, I suppose that is something that I am going to have to wait for in the next book as I believe it is going to be featured greatly. I did enjoy this though.
THE ENDING. I cant even talk about the ending as I am still trying to get over it. COME ON. How am I meant to wait to find out what happens? I did suspect this was going to happen midway through the book, but then so much happened I forgot about this theory so when it came to light I was still taken by surprise. This book is so good guys. I immediately preordered myself a physical copy and I am already anxiously anticipating the final instalment of this trilogy!
