Book Review

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

It has been barely a day since Carol arrived at the dome, and she already witnesses an eerie banishment scene of a Sashurai named Vanguard. Little by little, she will discover the conspiracy that involves the military leader General Kuromori and a woman named Eve. Author Shaun Penney delivers his stunning debut novel “The Death of Eve”, a story about the world’s post-apocalyptic future that drives mankind to isolation and struggles to maintain order.

Reading about a dystopian world is not always pleasant, but Mr. Penney definitely made it worthwhile and bearable. His deep knowledge about swords is evident; thus that part of the story was exceptionally well-written. The descriptions are very detailed: a writing quality that I always appreciate as a reader, leading to a futuristic world that is easy to imagine. On the whole, the plot is very well-thought-out and free from burdensome description. There are some explicit parts of this book that will be hard to read for some readers. The characters, main and secondary, are equally well-developed although I was mostly gravitated to Carol Jenn, as she was the most memorable one to me. I was disappointed with the fate of one of the characters in the story; even so I won’t spoil the content for the sake of other readers. A solid read that will satisfy sci-fi fans, and will continue to do so as the second volume of this intriguing saga is already available for quite a while.
