Two years into the aphid plague, there’s little hope left. Food and ammo are scarce. The mutated monsters are growing faster, smarter. And the ratio of men to women is millions to one. Mankind faces imminent extinction.
But Evie carries a cure for women.
Fiercely protected by three men, she sets out to heal as many infected females as possible. The journey becomes more complicated as her feelings for her guardians evolve, and theirs for her intensify.
When a voice from the past prophesies a solution for the dying race, she must make a choice.
Will she survive for love?
Or will she die for it?
BLOOD OF EVE by Pam Godwin
A BLOODY APOCALYPSE PAST GENTLE
The Story Continues…
Evie, Jesse, Rourk, and Micho
I just finished… like an hour ago… the hubs walked in on me bauling my eyes out! I couldn’t form any coherent words to tell him why I was weeping or how this book changed my life! I just sat there, smoke in hand, cocktail at the ready, tear streaming down my face and sighed. Pam, you have outdone yourself. Your writing, your imagination, and your characters are exquisite. I love you for putting this story down on paper!
Evie is my hero in every way, shape, and form. I will compare every main female character to her from this point forward. I’m quite certain only a few will match up. This woman saw death, decay, and hopelessness and faced it head on. She never gives up, she never wavers, and she always protects what’s rightfully hers… Jesse, Rourk, and Micho. Surviving the virus that engulfed the Earth, fighting aphids, dodging the Drone, and looking for nymphs has become her daily creed. She makes even the most dangerous of the badasses look like a freakin’ child. I will love her till my dying day.
Jesse is a man of few words. He endures so much pain and hardship yet barely shows his feelings and never complains. Although he may not tell you what he’s thinking, you’ll know by the look on his face that you’re better off leaving him the fuck alone. To me he was always Evie’s main protector. His love for her never faltered. He dealt with many obstacles and barriers when it came to her, but his love is true and his love is one of a kind.
Rourk “Father Mahony” cracked my right the fuck up! How Pam came up with all his dialogue I’ll never know. Amidst his humor lies a man who would lay down his life for the love of Evie. He’s not your traditional priest. He’s a post apocalyptic priest. One with more questions than answers, but with the love a good woman, a strong adherent, and his sword I have no doubt he’ll find what he’s been searching for.
God, how do I talk about Micho? I love this man with my entire being. He scared the ever-loving shit outta me. His puzzling persona drove me over the edge multiple times. He’s emotional, he’s large and in charge, and he’s a fierce protector of Evie and her heart. I can’t say that I always liked him, but in the end, I fell head of heels in love with this mysterious man. He fights an invisible demon within himself that seems to be killing him from the inside out. Although he started out ghastly, he won me over and I will pine for him the rest of my days.
The supporting character cast is vast in this story and I’m positive it will get larger before it’s all over. One honorable mentioned would be Shea. She’s a my kinda girl. Evie and her seem to be two peas in pod and I’m hopeful I’ll see more of her in the last installment, Dawn of Eve, coming sometime in 2016. Another honorable mentioned would be Link. This guy, to be honest, is a tad bit fucked up. He should come with a disclaimer… “Lives by the motto, Destroy what destroys you” He’s a natural born killer and he’s a man of many skills. The list could go on and on, but I’ll stop there or I fear I’ll run outta clever things to say!! lol!
To wrap this up… in a nutshell… I could not put this down. Sure there were the occasional stints of work, family, and bullshit, but for the most part, I kept a diligent pace till I uttered the last words. The characters drew me back into one of the most invigorating stories I’ve ever encountered in my life. The dialogue flowed nicely and everything within these pages made me feel like I was there. Down to the description of the landscape, I could feel it, I could smell it, and I lived it! Every page, every chapter was gripping and spellbinding. It lead me to a climax that I most certainly will never forget and am still reliving it as I type this sentence. I love you Pam Godwin and your fucked up mind!
