Eve knew the stories of the Fall, of a time before she wandered into the colony of Eden, unable to recall anything but her name. She’s seen the aftermath of the technology that infused human DNA with cybernetic matter, able to grow new organs and limbs, how it evolved out of control. The machine took over and the soul vanished. A world quickly losing its humanity isn’t just a story to her though. At eighteen, this world is Eve’s reality.
In their Fallen world, love feels like a selfish luxury, but not understanding what it is makes it difficult to choose between West, who makes her feel alive but keeps too many secrets, and Avian, who has always been there for her, but is seven years her senior.
The technology wants to spread and it won’t stop until there is no new flesh to assimilate. With only two percent of the human population left, mankind is on the brink of extinction. While fighting to keep Eden alive, Eve will discover that being human is about what you will do for those you love, not what your insides may be made of. And even if it gets you killed, love is always what separates them from the Fallen.
We are so happy to be part of the Eden Blog Tour hosted by Mundie Moms. A huge thank you to Mundie Moms and Keary Taylor for inviting us to participate!! Today we have a guest post from Keary Taylor. She tells us about what books she loves to read, and what technology she can’t live without.
Technology: Electronic Devices I Can’t Live With Out? (3-5 devices you can’t live without on a daily bases, ie: cell phone, computer etc
It is amazing to see how mankind has changed in the last 15 years or so. We’ve become incredibly dependent on technology and a lot of the time we don’t even think about the many decides we use on such a daily basis. I know I’m one of them! And there are a few devices I would have a hard time living without.
- My computer: It is my workhorse, my command central. It’s where I work. It’s where I stay connected to the world. The one time I had a computer crash on me felt like the end of the world.
- Cell phone: But not for the fact that I’m talking to people all the time. I actually have a phone phobia. But I constantly use my iPhone to stay updated on everything, much the same way I use my computer
- A kitchen: This might be cheating, claiming the whole kitchen. But think about how inconvenient life would be if you didn’t have a fridge, a stove, a microwave? Cooking anything would be mighty difficult. And when you have a family to feed like I do… Be grateful for that un-thought about convince.
Books have become something I can’t live without. Just walk into my house and that will become apparent. I have so many books in my house that I am running out of places to put bookshelves. I love everything about them. From the characters, to the worlds inside of them, to the covers, and the way they line up on the shelf.
Personally I’ve become obsessed with young adult fiction. It makes sense considering that is what I write. I like to stay current with everything that is coming out and I just really like to read in the genre. Every once in a while though I do get a craving for something more adult. So I’ll talk about both sides.
For more adult fiction I’m very varied in what I like. 2 of my top 5 favorite books are adult, being Angels and Demons by Dan Brown and The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson. They’re very different but both done by wonderful writers. Mystery is great, action that makes your heart pound, and words that make you dwell really pull me in.
For young adult I really love just about anything. I read everything from contemporary to fantasy to science fiction. But I do have one rule: it has to have a romantic factor! I’m just a sucker for romance. Give me something to pine for! I love to root for characters to be together. And I really love that you can get that romance with having such a mix of genres. I’d say my favorite young adult books would be Across The Universe by Beth Revis, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. Got three wide genre’s there and they’re all fantastic.
