Synopsis

A frenetic, pulse-pounding adventure, Shaun Penney's atmospheric debut
novel delivers a spellbinding mythology along with first-rate thrills
and almost unbearable tension. In the future, a devastating war has left
the world toxic and unlivable. Mankind survives isolated within four
domed cities. In every dome survival has come with a price: the rate of
female births seems to be in steady decline and the ultimate survival of
our species is at serious risk. A frantic race to understand and fix
the problem has led a hardened military leader named General Kuromori to
transport the few hundred women left living in the dome to a hidden
medical dome for study and research. Carol Jenn is the last woman to be
sent to the medical dome. But Carol does not have full knowledge of the
situation. When she meets Vanguard, one of Kuromori's soldiers who has
been banished for murdering a woman named Eve, the walls surrounding
Carol's perceptions begin to crumble around her. Joining Jessie, her
only true ally, in an uneasy alliance with Vanguard, she uncovers a
conspiracy involving Kuromori, his workforce, and even the women inside
the dome. But when Carol and Jessie try to escape the dome, they
discover the dark secrets behind The Death of Eve. An extraordinary
vision of a post-apocalyptic future that is rich in detail and rippling
with intrigue, The Death of Eve is a fascinating exploration of the
nature of man.
