Save The Pearls Part One Revealing Eden by Victoria Foyt Review

Would you betray your loved ones—and maybe your entire race—to avoid a horrible death?

In a post-apocalyptic world where resistance to an overheated environment defines class and beauty, Eden Newman’s white skin brands her as a member of the lowest class, a weak and ugly Pearl. The clock is ticking: if Eden doesn’t mate before her eighteenth birthday, she’ll be left outside to die. 

If only a dark-skinned Coal from the ruling class would pick up her mate option, she’d be safe. But no matter how much Eden darkens her skin and hair, she’s still a Pearl, still ugly—cursed with a tragically low mate-rate of 15%.

Just maybe one Coal sees the real Eden and will save her—she has begun secretly dating her handsome co-worker Jamal. But when Eden unwittingly compromises her father’s secret biological experiment, she is thrown into the eye of a storm—and the remaining patch of rainforest, a strange and dangerous land.

Eden must fight to save her father, who may be humanity’s last hope, while standing up to a powerful beast-man she believes is her enemy, despite her overwhelming attraction to him. To survive, Eden must change—but only if she can redefine her ideas of beauty—and of true love.

Acclaimed writer VICTORIA FOYT blends equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this captivating novel set in a terrifying future, which is all too easy to imagine. 


My Thoughts:
This book is totally different from any book that I have read. A future time where being white or anything other than a Coal could get you killed. This may be classified as a young adult book but I think that anyone can read this story. The descriptions of this futuristic civilization seem believable and the experiments of what could happen when DNA is messed with make this a page turning fun read. The only bad part is now I have to wait until Part Two!! I highly recommend reading this book if you love a great sci-fi twist to a love story.
I received this book for review and was not monetarily compensated for my review.
