4 to hell and back stars
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.

Sarah Williams



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 disease.

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.

In Dead of Eve we meet Evie. Evie is probably the strongest female character I've ever read in a book. Evie has survived the loss of her entire family and is this only surviving female in this apocalyptic world. It is unknown how she has surv

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.

If any book is going to get people talking it's going to be this. Are we talking in a good or bad way? Heck, I don't know. I can't imagine anyone reading thr

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

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.

One massive point that needs to be made straight away is that this is not a straight up horror read, many people who will love this book will pass it up with the belief that it isn't for them because of the horror and gore.

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.

4 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.

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!!!

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 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.

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.

UNRATED

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. Not only is Evie t

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

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

This lengthy story is not easy to read and it has some very disturbing elements. Germ-warfare is never pretty but add in a crazy-ass scientific muslim extremist, scary bug-like zombie mutations, rape, child death, extreme violence, gore and you get a post-apocalyptic hell with only one remaining woman.

Evie is extremely strong and I don't really know how she keeps going. Her guardians are pretty amazing but I wanted more of a connection from Jesse.

I love this series! Evie is a fantastic protagonist, and the post-apocalyptic world she lives in is fascinating. The plot is intricate, and the action intense and compelling. The description puts the reader fully in the scene without overwhelming with incidental details. Everything matters. I'm on to the next book!

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.

There are no words to describe just how much I loved this book. Dead of Eve was brought to my attention by a friend of mine who had read it. I admit at first I was reluctant because I was not sure how I felt about the whole aphid theme but it didn't take long before I was hooked.

This book is devastatingly horrific, yet so beautiful at the same time. It is so well written that you can see yourself fighting along side with Eve, you feel her heartbreak for those she has lost as if it were your own.

Such a good story. I was glued to it for the duration. But every time the psychopath "Drone" started spouting his fanatic religious quotes I cringed. For obvious reasons. Being a muslim myself, I wanted to slap the shit out of him and also real-life assholes who use religion to kill innocent people and nit-pick religious texts to fit into their disgusting agendas. So, now that I've had my rant, I will probably read the next book in the trilogy. Or not. We'll see.
