(ARC) REVIEW: Once by Anna Carey

Title: Once (Eve #2)
Author: Anna Carey
Date Published: 7/3/12

When you're being hunted, who can you trust?

For the first time since she escaped from her school many months ago, Eve can sleep soundly. She's living in Califia, a haven for women, protected from the terrifying fate that awaits orphaned girls in The New America.

But her safety came at a price: She was forced to abandon Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. When Eve gets word that Caleb is in trouble, she sets out into the wild again to rescue him, only to be captured and brought to the City of Sand, the capital of The New America.

Trapped inside the City walls, Eve uncovers a shocking secret about her past--and is forced to confront the harsh reality of her future. When she discovers Caleb is alive, Eve attempts to flee her prison so they can be together--but the consequences could be deadly. She must make a desperate choice to save the ones she loves . . . or risk losing Caleb forever.

In this breathless sequel to "Eve," Anna Carey returns to her tale of romance, adventure, and sacrifice in a world that is both wonderfully strange and chillingly familiar.

My Rating:

My Review:
Eve is finally "safe" the only problem is that now she is not only apart from the boy she loves, but she has no idea if he is even still alive.

I'm not going to lie, I really missed all things Caleb in this story. I really loved what he brought to the first book and his absence was definitely felt.

The revelations in this story were so unexpected. I really loved the suspense and how the story flowed. 

Eve is still her headstrong self and you can always count on her to do her own thing no matter what everyone else wants from her.

Eve is faced with some shocking discoveries and is forced to make decisions that could change everything.

Great sequel to Eve. I am loving this series!
