Overview

In the harsh Northern Waste where human life is worth little, ice trucker Raina Bowen has learned to keep her eyes open and her knife close at hand. She's spent her life on the run, one step ahead of the megalomaniac who hunts her. All she wants is to stay out of trouble and haul her load of grain to Gladow Station—but trouble finds her in the form of a sexy stranger called Wizard. He has the trucking pass she needs, and she has to drag him out of a brawl with the very people she's trying to hide from in order to get it. She may have rescued him, but Raina's not foolish enough to see Wizard as anything close to helpless. He's hard and honed and full of secrets—secrets that may destroy them both. As they race across the Waste, trying to outrun rival truckers, ice pirates, and the powerful man bent on their destruction, Raina's forced to admit that trouble's found her. And this time, there's nowhere left to run.

    I love both science fiction and romance, but futuristic romance

    I love both science fiction and romance, but futuristic romance usually doesn't meet my expectations. "Driven" is one of the best I've ever read. Most futuristic romance writers seem to write only one of the two genres well; either the romantic element is strong and the science fiction is weak, or vice versa. Eve Silver is one of the few who manages to balance both elements, giving the reader a solidly built futuristic society and a love story full of both fireworks and tenderness. I would give 5 stars, but most of my friends now discount 5 star reviews because they've been burned by too many paid reviewers. So I'm giving it 4 stars on this site, but I'm giving it a personaal 5 star recommendation.

    Driven by Eve Silver A post-apocalyptic, trans-Siberian trucker

    Driven by Eve Silver
    A post-apocalyptic, trans-Siberian trucker tale in the Northern Waste. Huh?
    A dark futuristic, hard-life, survivor romance.

    Raina Bowen survives and travels on her own. It's her choice. It's what she knows. "She doesn't need anyone."
    Then she rescues Wizard from a group of truckers intending to beat him. So now they are traveling together in her long-haul truck.
     They go back to the truck stop to help the rag-tag band of kids living there. And eventually find that the really nasty bad guy, Duncan Bane, is getting closer to finding Raina.
     Does she run or stand her ground.

    However you describe this book, it was an adventure from start to finish. I really enjoyed Wizard. He reminds me a little of Spock.
     He was brought up by a computer so he needs to learn emotions. And Raina is up for that task!  It's a great fast-moving story with a great romance.
     I love this book.  It's been sitting on my shelf for years, but I'm glad I finally read it. Eve Silver has moved high on my list of "must read authors".
