In a world where emotions are forbidden, what happens when you start to feel?

The harvest separates the worthy from the unworthy. Those who pass are destined to continue the human race, and the unworthy are culled.

For years, Eve has been the poster girl for emotional control. But ever since her brother was culled, Eve is finding it difficult to keep the monitor on her wrist an acceptable blue.

The next harvest ceremony is approaching and Eve will do whatever it takes to avoid the same fate as her brother.
Gripping and intriguing, Eve of Eridu explores the lengths that humans will go to in their quest for survival.

Review quote

"Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. I honestly can't fault this book at all! Eve is such a likeable character and I went through every single emotion she felt with her, even ending the book with a giant sense of loss about all Eve has been through."

"Alanah is an amazing writer, with a great eye for descriptions and imagery. This is one of those books that I can already see being made into a movie."

"I think it would be a huge understatement to say that I enjoyed this book. I absolutely love this story. You could say that I've gone "old world crazy" for it."

"I couldn't put down this intelligent, gripping, dystopian YA science fiction thriller. I read it over just two days."

"I'm blown away by Alanah's skill and talent for complex, imaginative world building, and the ability to create strong and realistic, relatable characters, all while weaving an intriguing storyline with a profound message. Alanah is an incredibly talented writer. Definitely one to watch! I look forward to reading more of her work. I gave it five stars only because I couldn't give it more."
