Eve of Eridu

A YA Dystopian Thriller

In a world where emotions are forbidden, what happens when you start to feel?

The harvest separates the worthy from the unworthy. Those who pass are destined to continue the human race, and the unworthy are culled.

For years, Eve has been the poster girl for emotional control. But ever since her brother was culled, Eve is finding it difficult to keep the monitor on her wrist an acceptable blue.

The next harvest ceremony is approaching and Eve will do whatever it takes to avoid the same fate as her brother.
Gripping and intriguing, Eve of Eridu explores the lengths that humans will go to in their quest for survival.


"Thought provoking and well written. This YA dystopian tale throws us into a world of suppressed emotions, where there is a place for everyone, and everyone knows their place. Or do they? "

"It reminded me of the Divergent series, which is a compliment because anyone who knows me knows that the series is one of my all-time favorites. But while it had its similarities, the uniqueness of the story really stood out to me."

"Alanah is an amazing writer, with a great eye for descriptions and imagery. This is one of those books that I can already see being made into a movie."

"fans of popular dystopian novels would definitely eat this one up. It kind of reminded me of The Giver mixed with Divergent."

"I couldn’t put down this intelligent, gripping, dystopian YA science fiction thriller. I read it over just two days."
