Dark Eden 2: Eve of Destruction
Title: Dark Eden 2: Eve of Destruction
Author: Patrick Carman
Year Published: 2012
Synopsis: Will Besting and the other teens who were “cured” at Fort Eden are still experiencing the strange signs of aging that were a part of their recovery. Now they are being called back to Fort Eden because Mrs. Goring is dying, and for some reason she wants to see the seven teens together again.
But once Will and the others arrive at Fort Eden, they find themselves ensnared in a dangerous plan to finally end the reign of Rainsford. Will must lead the group through a perilous underground trap masterminded by two devious souls. Can he outwit both Rainsford and Goring and find a new cure?
Patrick Carman’s Eve of Destruction is another terrifying journey into the depths of fear, love, revenge, and—ultimately—redemption.
Why?: I won this book in a Tweetstakes from HarperTeen. So I figured I should read it! Plus, I liked the first one, and I'm interested in how this one will continue the story.
Expectations: I expect another psychological thriller, but with more action. Also, I hope that the characters will be further explored, and all of Rainsford's motives and such will be explained.
Judging a book by its cover: The cover of the edition I have has a girl walking down a long hallway. I think a hallway, or a maze of hallways, will be important. And the girl too. What does she have to do with anything? Is it one of the girls from the first book?
