Before the Evolution there was TorBane: technology that infused human DNA with cybernetic matter. It had the ability to grow new organs and limbs, to heal the world. Until it evolved out of control and spread like the common cold. The machine took over, the soul vanished, and the Bane were born. The Bane won't stop until every last person has been infected. With less than two percent of the human population left, mankind is on the brink of extinction.
Eve knows the stories of the Evolution, the time before she wandered into the colony of Eden, unable to recall anything but her name. But she doesn't need memories to know this world is her reality. This is a world that is quickly losing its humanity, one Bane at a time.
Fighting to keep one of the last remaining human colonies alive, Eve finds herself torn between her dedication to the colony, and the discovery of love. There is Avian and West – one a soldier, one a keeper of secrets. And in the end, Eve will make a choice that will change the future of mankind.
The Bane is The Terminator meets The Walking Dead with a heart-twisting romance.
ARC copy was provided by the author and NetGalley in exchange for honest review.
TorBane was technology that was created to make everyone’s lives better. By infusing human DNA with cybernetic matter, it had the ability to grow new organs and limbs which would heal the world. However, after new side effects, the technology would take over the person’s body and create a monster: The Bane, that seeked to infect the remaining human who were on the ran to survive with just a single touch.
Eve was a part of group of people that were on the run. They called their home Eden, a place where they protected each other from The Bane and tried to live one day at a time. But Bane were getting smarter and trying to outrun them was starting to become impossible. When Eve doesn’t get infected by touching The Bane, she finds out why she really is different than any other person in Eden and knowing that she is a part of themmakes her sick but that might be only solution to keep everyone safe. Especially when there is a chance that The Bane may be gone forever and humanity can be restored.
Wow. Just wow. I have been putting off to read this book just because I thought that it wasn’t going to be very exciting and I might be a little lost. But right when I opened the book, I could not get enough of it. Eve was a very enjoyable character. Even with all of the feelings that she had to figure out between Avian and West, she never stopped being the badass girl that she was! I really appreciated that from the author because many of books I read, I see that once there is a guy involved, the girl starts being super annoying and you just want to beat the crap out of her. But Eve was always on top of things, she never gave up for anything and I’m really glad how the first book ended.
Cannot wait to read the second book in this Trilogy, The Humanand really hope that the story will be just as good as it has been.Terminator meets Walking Dead was a spot on description for this book and seriously! Who doesn't love robot-zombies?? ;)
