So I went into this one not sure what to expect, and it definitely had an interesting twist: Eve rejected the serpent in the Garden of Eden and we ended up with mortals being immune from death. Well, up to an extent. Interesting, right? It was cool to see how Frost set up a world where people live for ages and there is no worry about disease or injury. The opening, especially, is fascinating. I did find myself thinking that she relied too heavily on how our world works, however, to set things up. This may have been to ensure some kind of familiarity as a backdrop for understanding the main character's life and ideals, but otherwise I did think that there would be some larger discrepancies if this were truly set in such a world (as in, why high school if you live for centuries, at least?). Still, it was interesting and kept the pages turning. The love interest was a little one-off for me, but in general interesting and I did like watching the way their relationship built. Anyhow, overall a decent read and an entertaining one. I'll probably catch the next title in the series :)
Thanks to the publisher and LibraryThing for a free copy in exchange for my honest review.
Anyone else read something where they wonder if the world was a little *too* much based off our own?
