Book review- Selfsame

Author Eden Wolfe

Genre Dystopian Thriller( Part of the Lower Earth Series)

This was my first time using voracious readers only,  and my first time receiving a   book( free!) to provide a review. I had so many to choose from but this dystopian thriller set in a world where men are dying out caught my eye and I wasn’t disappointed.

From Amazon

Powerful. Beloved. And hunted for the secret in her blood.

Four hundred years after the Final war, eighteen-year-old Aria is poised to claim her birthright – the throne of Lower Earth.

It’s one of the last pieces of habitable continent left. Men are dying off from the after-effects of the war and women are genetically altered to survived.

But Aria’s blood is more advanced than any of them; she was designed from the genetic sequence of the settler queens.

Queen Maeva, Aria’s pseudo-mother, crushes all opposition. She has no fear of blood on her hands.

And she’s not afraid to do the same to Aria.

The threats multiply from within and beyond Lower Earth’s borders as destruction and colonization by the old men of Upper Earth approach their shores.

Aria has spent her lifetime preparing to take over the throne. Just as she is ready to fulfill her destiny, she’s blindsided.


Now being hunted, with enemies around every corner, Aria must battle the very totalitarian regime she was once destined to lead.

You’ll love this complex world in which good and evil are blurred for the sake of survival. Aria is a woman you’ll want to see win.
