SYNOPSIS

Welcome to the future. Genetic engineering has been perfected, manmade dragons fly the skies and
devils are bred as weapons of war. A powerful stem-cell drug called Eternavix promises eternal youth,
but ONLY if you are loyal to The Universal Imperium—the empire of empires that dominates the planet.
Eternavix can only be produced by using the DNA of women with rare, genetic traits. Mara is a Eurasian
with vivid blue eyes, making her a perfect candidate for DNA extraction. She travels to war-torn Chicago
with the hopes of beginning a new life, completely unaware that her body is worth a fortune to the
greed mongers willing to sell her to The Imperium. Her only chance at freedom from a secret, desert
prison known as “The Nursery” is an unorthodox alliance with a bio-designed devil who unexpectedly
falls in love with her. Is her life worth making a deal with the devil?

My review:

First I like to thank the author and Tiffany from This Redhead LOVES books (who put together the blog tour) for letting me read an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

Adult content rating: This book contains content unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

One of the things I love about the scifi, fantasy and dystopian genres is that there are no rules. Every story is is different and original with no boundaries as to where the authors imagination can take you. When I read this type of book I feel like I get to take a journey into the mind and imagination of someone greater than my self. That journey usually takes me to places I could never imagine. Some good, some bad but almost always amazing. Eternavix did just that.

The story easily took hold of me from the first page. Vivid descriptions of the characters and places opened my mind and let me see the story unfold in my minds eye.

Eternavix is told from two very different points of view, Mara and Be-elzebub, opposites in almost every way. I personally really enjoy reading books from different POVs because it gives the story and characters more dimension.  

I read this book in two settings, it would have been one but at four am I decided I'd better get at least a couple of hours of sleep. I loved the flow of the story and the evolution of the characters.
I love the way Mara changes Be-elzebub. She makes him start looking at himself and the world differently and it changes him.  This book was an awesome book on it's own as a stand alone novel but i'm crossing my fingers that this is just the beginning of what is sure to be an AMAZING scifi series.
