Book 1, The Eden Trilogy
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Before the Evolution there was TorBane: technology that infused human DNA with cybernetic matter. It had the ability to grow new organs and limbs, to heal the world. Until it evolved out of control and spread like the common cold. The machine took over, the soul vanished, and the Bane were born. The Bane won't stop until every last person has been infected. With less than two percent of the human population left, mankind is on the brink of extinction. Eve knows the stories of the Evolution, the time before she wandered into the colony of Eden, unable to recall anything but her name. But she doesn't need memories to know this world is her reality. This is a world that is quickly losing its humanity, one Bane at a time. Fighting to keep one of the last remaining human colonies alive, Eve finds herself torn between her dedication to the colony, and the discovery of love. There is Avian and West – one a soldier, one a keeper of secrets. And in the end, Eve will make a choice that will change the future of mankind. The Bane is The Terminator meets The Walking Dead with a heart-twisting romance. Previously published as Eden, due to reader demand it has been revamped and rereleased as The Bane: book one in The Eden Trilogy.
Really enjoyed this book. Great characters that you can't help but like.
The Bane was okay. The idea of the plot was really interesting, but the writing was predictable and the grammar was awkward in places, especially since contractions were underused (For example, I am was almost always used instead of I'm). This made the reading a little choppy and the dialogue weird. The characters only seemed to have basic personality traits like "tough" and "mysterious". Overall, a good idea, but not good writing.
