The End of the Eve Series is here, and I am thrilled to be able to share a letter from author Anna Carey to her readers.
It’s been over three years since I imagined one of the first scenes in Eve—a girl and boy on horseback being chased by a grizzly bear. Since then the series has been written, sold, published in the US and abroad, and now, apparently, THE END IS HERE. Love and thanks for following me this far, for your support for Eve and Once, and for hosting me for one of the last EpicReads events I’ll be doing for the trilogy.
And now…cue the violin music…
As you may have noticed, RISE is dedicated to Eve’s readers, but those two lines feel like a cheap imitation of all the gratitude I’m feeling now. When I started writing I wanted to tell the story of an incredibly sheltered, proud girl who was completely certain of the world around her. What happens when she finds out everything she learned is a lie? How can she possibly reconcile her education with what she’s discovering every day? Will she have the courage to leave all she’s ever known?
I have long believed that strength isn’t something we have or don’t have—it’s something that grows from experience. I never wanted to write someone who wasn’t scared, who never made mistakes or faltered. I wanted to write someone true, someone with real flaws who feels weak and terrified at times, but manages to scrape together all the courage she has to push through.
Emails and tweets, facebook posts and schools visits and signings and panels—I’ve seen how much Eve’s story has resonated with readers. I’m grateful that people have related to her and that they have loved her as I love her (and all these characters). I’m grateful that they’ve followed her, and the series, as she’s` grown into the strong, confident woman of RISE.
