I enjoyed these books, it was a great idea, and interesting setting, but I couldn't stand the main character, Eve, she was really easy to hate. I feel like every choice she made got someone hurt or killed. She just drove me nuts. Until mid way into Once, she redeemed herself in my eyes, but then by the end of Once she was back to aggravating me again. Overall I'd give Eve a 3 star rating and Once a 4 star rating. I will finish out the trilogy just to see it to the ending and to see if I'll like Eve any better.
