The Human by Keary Taylor ARC Review

The city of New Eden is cleared, but it won’t stay that way forever. The Bane continue to advance in horrific ways that will wipe humanity from the face of the Earth. A storm is coming, one none of them could have dared imagine.

When a group of outsiders come to the city, everyone is on edge. They have too many questions and not enough answers about where they are from or what they want. Just because they are human doesn’t mean they can be trusted.

Eve made a choice, one that could have deadly repercussions. Desperate hearts bring about desperate actions. Now she must make another decision as her world continues to crumble: come to terms with who she really is, or risk her sanity. She thought she had unlocked all the secrets from her past, but there are truths still buried that leave her questioning what is real and what is not

The Bane are dead and New Eden is in the process of being cleared for habitation for the survivors. The Pulse killed off former Bane soldiers, but not without casualties. West may never be the same again, infected by The Bane, a human turned hybrid machine. The technological Bane infection spreads throughout the human body, effecting organs and your humanity. 

Eve is the first Bane recipient, an adjustment to save her life as an infant. She has the ability to control The Bane in small numbers... Until now.

With her emotions at an all time high after choosing between Avian and West, Eve spirals into a depressive, angst ridden state. She misses the camp, the trees, the fresh air and changing seasons. Now confined to the hospital quarters at New Eden, without a purpose. How quickly that will change...

With survivors arriving at New Eden, Eve can feel that the group's intentions are sinister. They keep their cards close to their chests and refuse to answer questions. It isn't until Eve is kidnapped and West going along willingly, that she learns that there is also a large population in Seattle. They know all about Eve and plan on using her to save themselves, in exchange for life saving surgery for West to remove the remaining Bane components.

Little does she release, that not only can she save humanity, she also possesses the power to destroy it.

The Bane trilogy is, in one word, AWESOME. Eve is half human, half Bane machine, and some days she struggles to be either. I love her character, she's not only tough and a leader among men, she'll rewrite the young adult science fiction genre. Keary Taylor has created a post apocalyptic world where modern advances in health sciences have lead to mankind being wiped from the earth. It's scary, it's even comical at times, dramatic, heartwarming, but mostly it's bloody brilliant.

The Bane Series will blow your sock clean off.
