The Bane  - Keary Taylor http://divainpyjamas.blogspot.com.au/

I thoroughly enjoyed The Bane. It was a strange mix of a science fiction, post apocalyptic, coming of age romance, that Keary Taylor has woven together to produce this addictive series, that I found extremely difficult to put down. Eve is a strong female character and takes you on the journey to her own self discovery, while she discovers what it feels like to fall in love for the first time. Well written and was thankful there were no long speeches dating the back story of the world they now live in, it was scattered throughout a few chapters, so it didn't become monotonous. My only one complaint that not one character swore or cursed, with the age group of the majority of the characters, the end of the world setting, violence, I was surprised.

This first book in the Eden Trilogy will leave you with more questions than answers, equating to a hunger for the next in the series. I'll be eagerly anticipating book two
