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".

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.

Kind of like a porn novelist tried to get away into S.F and couldn't quite make it.

While this is hardly the worst book I've read, it left alot to be desired. Wizard and Raina weren'treally the issue; well, if you can get past the "perfect LI is perfect," syndrome and being reminded every other page of his profession and how "worthless" he is etc... I mean the steamy scenes were great, and I even liked the trope role reversal of the guy being all, "what are these strange feelings?!?!?" For me the real problem was the world building, i judt wasn't really into it and I found myself nit caring and skipping over a lot if scenes. Plus his name is Wizard...
