Overview

In Dark Eden: Eve of Destruction, the thrilling sequel to New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman’s Dark Eden, the seven teens who were “cured” by Rainsford reunite to find relief from their ailments...and realize they may have the power to stop Rainsford’s ghoulish reign once and for all.

Ensnared in a dangerous and ever-deepening mystery, Will Besting must lead his friends through a perilous underground trap masterminded by two devious souls at war with one another. It’s a game of cat-and-mouse, and not everyone will be alive when it’s over.

Dark Eden: Eve of Destruction is a harrowing journey into the depths of fear, love, revenge, and—ultimately—redemption.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—In this follow-up to Dark Eden (HarperCollins, 2011), Will Besting returns to Fort Eden at the behest of cranky old Mrs. Goring. Threatening to reveal secrets that could jeopardize Will's relationship with Marisa, the woman pushes her advantage and convinces Will to lure all of Rainsford's former victims back to the abandoned military installation where they were all "cured." Now suffering from inexplicable and debilitating side effects, the kids are promised what they desire most from Goring: a true cure that will return them to 100 percent normal. Sent to the depths of the base to retrieve mysterious vials that hold the key to their salvation, Will begins to suspect Goring's motives when she locks them all inside. To his horror, he discovers that Rainsford and the missing wayward member of their group, Avery, are locked beneath Fort Eden as well. While much of the ominous atmosphere is maintained from the first book, this sequel fails to provide the same high-stakes eeriness of the original. Carman's descriptions of the underground labyrinth where most of the story is set tend to be more confusing than evocative, and the fact that Rainsford and Avery pop up halfway through the novel with no explanation of how or why they got there may baffle many readers. Still, fans of the original will no doubt enjoy this book, which satisfyingly concludes Rainsford's wicked hold over his seven original victims.—Ryan Donovan, New York Public Library
