Eve: The Awakening by Jenna Moreci

Eve is an outcast. A chimera.

After years of abuse and rejection, 19-year-old Evelyn Kingston is ready for a fresh start in a new city, where no one knows her name. The esteemed Billington University in sunny Southern California seems like the perfect place to reinvent herself—to live the life of an ordinary human.

But things at Billington aren’t as they seem. In a school filled with prodigies, socialites, and the leaders of tomorrow, Eve finds that the complex social hierarchy makes passing as a human much harder than she had anticipated. Even worse, Billington is harboring a secret of its own: Interlopers have infiltrated the university, and their sinister plans are targeted at chimeras—like Eve.

Instantly, Eve’s new life takes a drastic turn. In a time filled with chaos, is the world focusing on the wrong enemy? And when the situation at Billington shifts from hostile to dangerous, will Eve remain in the shadows, or rise up and fight?

Holy shit! I’ve been thinking that phrase over and over again ever since I discovered Jenna Moreci on Youtube way back in April (or March, who the hell even knows?). I always loved her writing-advice videos, her personality, and her book didn’t disappoint (I mean, with all the tips she vlogs about, that would have sucked). But it didn’t, so we’re all good.

Now, I don’t want to spoil this kick-ass novel because it has one hell of a plot that you’d kill me for telling you the end. But what I can say is that Evelyn “Eve” Kingston is one of the best heroines I’ve read in a novel in a long time! I finished the first 12 chapters within 1.5 hours way back in April when I begged Jenna to send me the first 12 chapters before she staged an intervention and told me to wait like the rest of her street team to get the book (which happened yesterday).

I finished the rest of the book within an hour because it was THAT good and suspenseful—the woman knows how to get your heart racing to near dangerous levels. The last few chapters were even more stressful than usual. And what an end it was! Read some of the teasers below and if those don’t have you DYING to know what happens, then I don’t know what else to say to you besides the fact that we probably don’t share the same taste in books.

To everyone who does like the teasers and book description, I say preorder now and prepare for one crazy adventure come August 12th!
