The characters were incredibly hard for me to like in this sequel, mostly due to their naivety and poor judgment.

Synopsis

In Dark Eden: Eve of Destruction, the thrilling sequel to New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman’s Dark Eden, the seven teens who were “cured” by Rainsford reunite to find relief from their ailments...and realize they may have the power to stop Rainsford’s ghoulish reign once and for all.

Ensnared in a dangerous and ever-deepening mystery, Will Besting must lead his friends through a perilous underground trap masterminded by two devious souls at war with one another. It’s a game of cat-and-mouse, and not everyone will be alive when it’s over.

Dark Eden: Eve of Destruction is a harrowing journey into the depths of fear, love, revenge, and—ultimately—redemption.

I would not recommend reading this one on its own though. Go back first and read Dark Eden. There are too many little things that will probably be confusing to a reader new to the series. Both books are worth it.

It explores fear and mystery, and how that can affect a person, especially a teenager. The twister ending does require discussion, but that will have to wait for the next book!

Despite this, I was still flipping through pages to see what would happen next. Carman still brings his signature thrills to each page, and kept me enthralled until the end.

The sequel reminded me of a horror movie sequel. Let's bring back the same cast. Different situation, but same formula.

And again, this is a great series to get kids reading, with the interactive links and apps, it will pull in the kids who are reluctant readers, just like Patrick Carman's other books have.
