"I am surrounded by people but I’ve never felt so alone. Every minute, every hour that Tony is being used by Zack, is torture to me. Can they not see that I die a little more each day that we’re apart?" ~Willow Mosby, Surviving ELE

In the aftermath of Project ELE, Willow's life has become a series of one traumatic moment after another. It spins around her in a cyclone of fu

Surviving ELE is the fourth installment in the dystopian style young adult series that follows Willow Mosby, a 16 year old girl having to cope with unimaginable circumstances that are developing around her at the same time as her remarkable powers are evolving.

Surviving ELE continues from where we were left during the epilogue in Finding ELE with a story that yet again I read start to finish without a pause. The choices that Willow has to face are almost unbearable to read and the roller coaster

Eeeep! This book was fantastic! So many things happen, so many issues are resolved. Questions were answered. All around wonderful and fun! I will not go into too much detail with this book because I want you to read it - I'm not CliffsNotes!

There is quite a few places that caused my heart to beat out of my chest. There was a few scenes that seriously made my belly tingle. There was one scene in particular that had me screaming at the book - cheering Willow on and saying FINALLY!!!!!

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
Fourth book in the series & they just keep getting better & better!!! Willow's back & Zac has taken Toni from her! She must face him, but she's not on her own, her friends refuse to let her go it alone. Willow must get Toni back & then just when you think all is well, she must save her friends & family. This book is thrilling, action packed, funny in places & in other places had me in tears. But such an exciting read! Best end of the world

Surviving ELE spurred my insomnia.

I’ve been waiting for this book for what felt like forever. I’ve been so anxious to find out what would become of Tony. This was another great installment in the series and I am very curious to see where they take the series from here. The ending made it more than clear that this is not the end of Willow and her friends. There were a few formatting issue in my copy, but they weren’t even distracting enough to catch my eye most the time. I only mention it because

At the end of book 3, Exposing ELE, Willow was running in fear from someone she thought she knew, someone she trusted with her life.

At the start of book 4 she is still running, not only from one, but two people. One of them is Zack, who has taken over from his father in trying to gain more insight into why Willow has the powers she has, and is trying to have those powers for himself.

In this book Willow has to deal with a lot of emotions - loss, fear, and anger among them. She is captured on more

Surviving ELE is the fourth book in the ELE Series which centres around 16 year old Willow Mosby. Since we first met Willow in Project ELE she has grown so much more than she thought she would. At every turn she has faced new hardships, heart ache and despair. But she doesn't let that keep her down for long. When we left her in Finding ELE she was running for her life, from the man she was falling in love with, a man who was being controlled by Zack. True to form Willow fights back and refuses t ...more

Best one so far. You get more history on Project Ele, as well as glimpse the broader spectrum this story encompasses. There is plenty of action and I was glad to see how Willow handled certain situations. At times you forget she's just a 16 year old girl, then her reactions and thoughts remind you of her age and fallibility. Luckily, she is a great heroine who grows with each difficulty and hardship she is faced with. Oh, and I love Tony. My heart broke I don't know how many times, but its worth ...more

Entertaining enough concept that I want to finish the series, I’ve read the first four books this week so I want to see how it ends. Probably wouldn’t re-read the series, but I am enjoying it. Fast reads too if you’re looking for something like that. My biggest complaint is the serious lack of editing, in all the books, but I especially noticed it in this one. Opening quotations around unspoken descriptive sentences, the word “media” kept getting used and all I could figure out was maybe autocor ...more

After 4 books in 72 hours, I still want more!

I've read the first 4 books in the past 72 hours (on top of working full time) and I cannot get enough! The story doesn't seem to be dragging on or filled with fluff to take up pages. It keeps you captivated. I absolutely love this series, the characters and all of the attention to detail. My only recommendation would be more editing, because the grammar, punctuation, and spelling all need to be cleaned up a bit.
Good storyline, but had a lot of glaring typos. Needs to be edited better.

I'm really torn on this book. I'm not great at writing reviews, but I know what I like and what I don't. In this case, unlike the first 3 of this series, I am struggling with a positive review. I normally refrain from giving a review if my review is not positive but in this case it is my hope that my review will allow the authors to make improvements before releasing the next book. I hope the authors will forgive me for the following somewhat harsh review, but I feel it should be said.

I received a copy of Surviving ELE, book 4 in the ELE series, in exchange for my review.

With the shelter now completely abandoned, apart from the possible risk of Zack's men within it, and the inhabitants either living within the two survivor colonies, or still being held by Zack, Willow knows that she has to take him out. But first she needs to find a way to get Tony back from being controlled by Zack, and is determined to do that no

Wow! just Wow! I am speechless! and exhausted! the running in this book was absorbed every word and I don't think it could have been any better! this story is freaking amazing!

We start again where the last left off Willow is trying to find a way to fixing Zack's hold over Tony but the visions are getting stronger and she knows it is only a matter of time before Zack takes him over completely.

When Tony becomes to much of a threat to the groups safety Willow takes him away for a fe

This is the fourth book in the acclaimed ELE Series. I absolutely LOVED it!

Willow Mosby is a fantastic character! She has had to deal with a lot in her short life, but losing Tony may just break her. I love this character! She is only sixteen, but she has a maturity about her that has others looking up to her as a leader, even the adults.

As this is the fourth book in the series, I knew that I was heading for a rollercoaster ride of EPIC proportions! This book sure didn't disappoint

It's been a few months since I've read the ELE series. Surviving ELE, I picked up because I wanted to read another great Dystopian Romance. I loved the initial premise of Project ELE and I really enjoyed the first three stories in the series.

Surviving ELE is the fourth book in the ELE series. It took me awhile to get into the novel. I felt as though a lot of the story was told to me, not shown until the last quarter of the book. The authors work good together when it comes to action and suspens

The Good:
Willow failing and learning
Same as previous entries
Found out what Zac wants with Willow

The Bad & The Other:
Felt more disconnect with Willow with her repeated use of the term “man card”
Candy's just around for showdown moments and is “fixed” by getting a boyfriend
Didn't feel like it's own story, but a filler
Waiting for the bigger story is getting to me

After 4 books and around 600 some pages, I don’t have much to say. It’s much the same as previous installments but the love triangle i

Way to not edit!! So there was continuity issues and spacing issues incorrect usage of words. "There is rage in his tone as he insinuates the verbs." Insinuates? That word.. I don't think it means what you think it means...I had trust issues reading anything from a new author so quick to fame and now I rememebr why. Did fame and money go to your head so you pushed the release and didn't care about the process anymore? The last one was release in December. books are not supposed to be made within ...more

I was on the edge of my seat the whole time they were going through their missions and doing recon.

When Zack would appear in the book I got angry and could totally feel what Willow was feeling, when Zack was controlling Tony I was so emotionally torn for him and Willow. I just wanted to reach into the book and take it away from him, make Zack STOP!

I have connected so much with the characters in this book, I am suffering a big book hangover with this whole series right now.

This is the fourth book in the ELE Series, and once again, the authors do not disappoint. The war between Willow and her friends and Zack and his minions has reached epic proportions, and they'll stop at nothing to take each other down. Willow's fighting for her family, her friends, her love, and her life, as Zack wants to sell her blood and powers to the highest bidder, while also keeping some for himself. He has to be stopped, a

I'm continuously amazed at how the authors are able to keep me on the edge of my seat. The character that they give Willow is an incredible one she undergoes so much in such a short amount of time as is able to process it and grow and learn from it and be an inspiration to others around her. I cannot wait for the next book to see what lies in store for her. Don't get me wrong I love all the other characters in this book they give so much to the story and to willow, she just happens to be my favo ...more

This book picks up where Exposing ELE leaves off and does not disappoint. From start to finish I was so pulled into this story that I was unable to put it down. This series has by far become one of my favorites and the author's of this series are truly talented. I have come to love the characters and find myself rooting for them along the way. I can't wait for the final book in the series "Ending ELE" to see how this series ends.

Great story...seemed a little rushed and could have added more but still liked the story line. Great quick read. Needed to be edited better tho, I almost stopped reading it because it was driving me nuts that it wasn't spaced correctly. It seemed like after every sentence there was not a space, for example..."Alec's expression turns angry.Alec can be pretty stubborn.When he has his...." Great job tho ladies, can't wait for the next book :)

This series is one of my ultimate favorites, I have 're- read this series many, many times and each time not only do I feel like it's the first time but there is so many feels with this series. Author Rebecca Gober, will rip your heart to shreds and then puts it back together piece by piece, until your completely whole with faint remembrance of the pain you went through along with each of our beloved character's. I would definitely recommend this series.

Answers raised by questions from the 3 previous books were answered and I continued to enjoy the story. However, I hesitate to purchase and read the last in the series simply because the series could easily have ended here. Government involvement seems to be like a 'rabbit pulled from the hat' to keep the reader involved enough to continue the series, and right now that hasn't worked for me.
