Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light. I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

Eve is the last real woman on earth, there are others but they are in a form of a nymph, deadly to children and to men, turning men into aphids. She's lost everyone who ever meant anything to her, and no matter how committed she is to dying just the same, something about her is different making her immune to the diseas

I'm going to pull an Ash and not rate this book because I'm not sure what to think.

Trigger Warnings : Rape, bad pop culture references, incest, baby-kicking, bugs feasting on humans, religion bashing, grotesque race-mutating and medical experimenting, excessive gore, woman-shaming, abuse of sex toys, and a ridiculous love triangle pentagon.

I will start off by saying this is probably one of the hardest books I've ever read. At about 18% I put it down and almost didn't pick it back up. I slept on it. Thought about it. I almost picked up another book, but I couldn't- I had to to see this through.

This is not an easy feel-good story, it’s a brutal tale of survival and tragedy where a woman has to rise above her grief and play the hand she's been dealt.

This was unrelentingly intense, remorseless and savage and at times it brought me to my knees and had me sobbing like a baby.

HOLY FREAKING SHIT! Like for real!

I decided to read this book, which is definitely outside of my comfort zone after meeting the fabulous Pam Godwin at a signing. She said there is romance in it, so of course, I was like I am in! I started this book today and couldn't put it down. I felt so many things while reading this story: heartbreak, fear, anxious and love.

Is this my normal read, no, but I can't wait for more. I am terrified for Evie, I am terrified for just how much more she will have to

DNF at about 20% - this made me so fucking angry I couldn't even type this review at first. I've loved other books by this author (which I honestly want to go back and re rate, but I don’t believe in lying) - this book took the fucking piss.

Dead of Eve was an exciting and intriguing science fiction/apocalyptic novel that is the first in a trilogy.

A virus has spread throughout the world, killing off women and children. The men who are infected turn into a bug-like creature that feed off of the living. Somehow Evie is not effected. Her and her husband have been staying safe in their home for a couple of months.They have the means to survive with their food supply, weapons, and skills.

This books is in a category all by itself, no comparison, no debate!

Brilliant. Thrilling. Horrific. Suspenseful. Apocalyptic. Imaginative. Lustful.

This story consumed me, devoured me whole, and won't ever let me go. I am awed by this author, captivated by the complexity of the story, and fearful that I may not survive until the next book comes out!

The rest of my review cannot be written without spoilers, I apologize...

***** 4 Stars *****

I thought this was going to be about zombies, but the fantasy involves a lot more than just mindless walkers. The creatures are more like mutated monsters that have the ability to move quickly.

Their infectious bite left the world with only a few survivors.

And only one woman.

As Evie struggles to survive, strange things happen to her body because she's evolving too. As she travels around the world to find a cure, she finds allies to help her on her journey.

If you like apocalyptic genre do not be discouraged by my rating, writing was excellent and you will probably love this book. I loved it myself and would rate it with 5 stars until two thirds... Than I could not stomach what was happening and it kind of ruined whole story for me so I am going with middle rating even though writing style really enraptured me.

I loved this author's book, DELIVER, but nothing of hers I've read since can recapture that magic for me. DEAD OF EVE had a lot of problems, though. It's a post-apocalyptic book where a "Muslim insurgency" has unleashed a plague upon the U.S. that turns them all into bug people. The xenophobic/mutant plot kind of reads like something you would see in a 1950s Z movie, that could just as easily be called "Invasion of the Bug Peopl

4 ½ stars. Excellent suspense throughout the book. Kept me awake at night. Good writing! It’s apocalyptic sci fi.

Emotionally engaging. I didn’t want to stop reading. It reminded me of Stephen King stories: good story, creative characters, violence, some good people die. It also felt part Star Wars: lots of fight scenes and being in the belly of the beast. There are some loving relationships. They support the plot in an interesting way. I liked the idea of Evie using something from men.

I was bored out of my mind. I felt like the story wasn't whole, that things didn't add up. I also felt like Evie's story was way over, even though it apparently has just begun. Typical that she is just one woman, and got three men loving her. I kept waiting for the book to be over. It's also typical that I didn't enjoy the book, while other seem to love it. I finished it though, so applause to me.

First book of the Trilogy!!

I got advance readers copy since I am that special :)

This book hooked me from the very beginning. Trying to straitening my hair and read just to figure out what happens next trying not to burn my fingers, That's when I know I am HOOKED....
This book may not be for everyone. It does contain strong sexual violence and death. The ghost of her children gave me goose bumps. But went perfect in the book, to me!!!

Like a feminist's wet dream and the politically correct's nightmare all in one book.

So the world ended with a Muslim extremist movement dropping a virus that turned humans into insect-like creatures called Aphids. All woman-kind have been wiped out save for one, Evie Delina. Now Evie is special: she moves like these creatures while having an uncanny connection to them. This sounds a lot like Resident Evil to be honest, with a lot of extra side dishes to the heroine.

Okay, so this book is an unrepentant ridiculous sci-fi sexy mess, that somehow still has really human moments. But it's so damn weird. And yet I like it?

You probably shouldn't trust my judgement when it comes to books about giant mutant aphids, lots o' guns, and boning. But hey, I (kinda) like what I like.

❗️❗️Trigger warnings (for the first 40% of the book or so): rape, gore (a lot of it), deaths and mutations

DNF at about 40% (it's been almost a year so I honestly don't remember how far I made it before deciding to not finish it).

The basic plot of a woman being on her own in a post-apocalyptic world where mutated bug-like humans are killing and feasting on the few "normal" humans left is not bad. The idea of Eve being one of the last woman in her area (or in the world?) is interesting too, but
As usual, Pam Godwin left me in stunned awe. She's a freakin' amazing writer!

What in the apocalyptic world did I just read? This is a book unlike any that I have ever read. Pam Godwin has created an awesomely horrific new world where you have to fight just to live. The characters she has created are wonderfully complex and devotedly delicious. I have fallen in love with three remarkable men. Three men who are completely different from one another, with their own strengths and weaknesses, but who all have one goal in common, to guard and protect the last unaffected woman ...more

Pam Godwin delivers the perfect amount of suspense and action, the characters fold into the story like butter, I was hypnotized into the world she created. Unconventional, heartbreaking, and darkly beautiful. I couldn't look away.

This author has a clear, easy to read way of writing, with pretty clean text. The idea behind this plot - a virus that turns everyone into bugs? Sweet. A kick-ass heroine? Nice. Sex? Bonus!

As it happens, once I hit the eye-rolling zone, I had difficulty getting out of it. Either you can roll with it or you can't, and at the time I just wasn't in the mood I think. This is heavy fantasy, and I'm more of a sci-fi gal (unless we're talking magic). It's also got quite a bit of spirituality in it. I d

So when I saw the blurb for this I knew I had to read it. Dystopian romance is one of my trash tropes. But this was on a whole other level. Absolutely original take on the trope and I was captivated throughout the book with Eve and this world.

The story centers around Eve the last remaining women in a world after a virus that transforms humans into ravenous creatures known as aphids. After losing what no woman should ever have to lose she embarks on a quest for answers to the virus. Battling aga

To say I was shocked by this book is an understatement. I followed Pam Godwin on twitter because I saw she was a fellow writer. And it just so happened her book was coming out. How could I not read it?

I was unprepared for how good it was.

At her worst moments in the book, Godwin writes with the detail and energy of Richard Laymon. In her best moments she is something more than that: original, vibrant and completely engrossing. This is not another Buffy Summers clone. Eve is a fresh and, like ever

Wow... didn't expect to love this so much!

I really enjoyed this book. It is a bit... weird, and at first some aspects seem cheesy, but it ends up being so good.

It's apocalyptic. With essentially humans that have turned into beetles instead of zombies. Evie is the only woman left, but is she really JUST a woman? Heck no. She's way more, and she's strong, and tough, and just amazing.

I don't want to spoil anything, but she goes through so many things from the start of the outbreak until the end of
