If the Seventine are released, will anyone survive?Abigail Swish might not love her life, living in gang-ridden New York in 2035 and training to fight and survive with Compound 23. But she is grateful for a few things, especially her no-filter-between-brain-and-mouth best friend Lucy and her escape each night into a dream world far different from her own. In fact, sometimes she lives for the fleeting moments she spends at night with the man who fuels every romantic fantasy she’s ever had. But each morning reality returns. She could just cry. But she won’t of course; tears don’t change a damn thing.Then without any warning, a month before her eighteenth birthday, everything does change. A guardian finds her. He explains, in a strangely familiar accent, that she was stashed on Earth for safekeeping and has been lost to her family ever since. And it is time to return home. To the First World; a land of unimagined beauty. Abigail and Lucy find themselves escaping New York, ending up on another planet and traversing through an unforgiving wilderness. Yeah, because that sort of thing just happens every day. Luckily an unexpected saviour arrives; the man from her dream-world. Brace is six-and-a-half feet of gorgeous perfectness, wrapped in an arrogance like no other. Unable to trust his assistance, and unsure which of her instincts to follow - kiss him or punch him in the mouth - Abigail eventually accepts his help to find her family. And what a family. Enter Josian, her father; larger than life and apparently not even human. He is Walker, a planet-less race revered as gods, causing mischief and mayhem through-out this star-system. Unfortunately, there is no time for a cosy reunion, since no one explained that by returning to First World her half-Walker genetics would act as a catalyst setting forth a chain of events which could spell disaster for not only her existence but that of all worlds.First World is book one in the Walker Saga, a seven-book paranormal fantasy series.Spurn - A Walker Saga Book Two release date set for September 2013....

    I've been wanting to read another Jaymin Eve book since LOVING the Curse of the Gods series. This is very different from that series, just so you know.Abigail lives in an alternate post-apocalyptic version of Earth, in which humans have treated the planet like a dumpster for too long. Society has fallen, the soil is barren, the world is basically dead, with stragglers living in gangs, groups of rebels, or, in Abigail's case, raised in small groups of young girls, funded by the rebels, until they turn eighteen and are turned out on the streets. (Hey, it's a rough life!)Abigail is about to turn eighteen and has had strange dreams all her life. Dreams of people that seem very special to her, of a planet teeming with life. She ends up meeting her Guardian, who helps her and her best friend, Lucy, escape Earth and travel through a portal to the First World.Earth ends up being one of 7 "offspring" planets of First World. So they are similar. The aliens on First World are taller and look slightly different, but in most ways, are human-like. But, it makes sense because... First World is the "source."So, this ended up being a great read for me. It's not perfect and Abigail is pretty much your typical YA Special Snowflake. But, I've said it before, I like my heroines to be special, so this was not an issue for me.There is tons of potential with exploring the other worlds, and I really liked the set up for the next books. Brace (strange name) is the romantic interest, and he is pretty swoon-worthy. I also thought the BFF Lucy was fleshed-out well. Usually the BFF seems generic to me, but Lucy was substantial as a supporting character.I'll definitely be continuing! Buddy read with a couple of my MacHalo ladies. We have to have our regular dose of YA no matter what some of you say! *points at Sarah*

    Fair warning: I’m a guy. This review is from a male perspective. Ok now that that’s out of the way, let me tell you about this fantastic book!I came across this author and her book on a Goodreads indie author forum (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review), and I admit my first reaction was “Oh no, I have to review a chick-lit paranormal romance”. Needless to say, this isn’t my normal genre, but I decided to risk my testosterone levels and make it to the end so I could give a fair review. And I’m a better man for it.From the opening scenes with Abby the orphan struggling to make it in a post-apocalyptic New York I was hooked. The author does a fantastic job of setting the scene and quickly introducing you to the main characters in a fluid and well told story. Abby and her best friend Lucy make a great team throughout the novel, providing complementary personalities that strengthen and support each other when they need it most. The action really starts to pick up as they are whisked away to the First World, where Abby finds out about her past, her family, and eventually, her future. Along the way she meets several men, including Brace, the dark-haired, brooding hunk who she pretty much falls for immediately, no matter how much she doesn’t want to. I think the author did a fantastic job of putting the romance and emotional bonds between the characters in without going overboard. There are plenty of scenes with smoldering looks and latent sexual tension, but they developed naturally throughout the story; they don’t feel forced or crowded in as with some of the current crop of YA Urban Fantasy genre. Overall it was a perfect blend of romance with action throughout the story.Jaymin Eve has written a terrific YA Urban Fantasy story that can easily appeal to older audiences as well, even the guys out there. The storyline, pacing, and characters all make it a book that will appeal to just about any fan of Science-Fiction and Fantasy novels. Definitely worth the read!

    Meh 2.5 starsThis was just okay. There was nothing too annoying or particularly exciting, I did find the heroine's acceptance of where she really came from a bit of a letdown. It was just like - "Oh, I'm from another world and an extra special snowflake. Huh. Oh, look something pretty." Blah.

    This was.... An ok read. I'm trying to revamp my rating system, so a 2 star means that is was intriguing enough to keep me reading, but not enough to pull me in. And make me interested. Why? Let's break this down:THE GOOD:1. Abby is kick ass and who does love strong female heroines? We need more of them since there's a shortage in YA.2. Lucy is a sidekick that is not left just for the background. She has a personality and a story of her own woven in this tale. For once, a sidekick who is not forgotten. It's a nice change.3. The parents are doting and available. They are (somewhat) realistic in their portrayal of emotions.4. New York world building was quite good. I very much enjoyed that part of the story.5. Lead characters who go with the flow when their world is turned upside down. See a friend disappear in front of you? Oh, all is ok now that she's back. The book has realistic emotions that caught me thinking: I'd react like that.THE BAD:1. The story feels very rushed. It's a lot to cram in the few pages it has. The pace felt waaaay too rushed. Taking more time to delve deeper into the characters and world building would have added much needed depth to the story. The initial New York portion was fine, but then how everything just fell in place and information came out of the woodwork? I have verbal diarrhea.2. Ending crashed and burned. Yes, there is a massive fight at the end (let's face it, it's like a prerequisite for the book to qualify as YA for some dumb dumb freaking reason). However, do we get anything else out of it? No. Who was the mastermind behind the (view spoiler)[life sucking and kidnappings (hide spoiler)]? No idea. What's up with the mysterious nature of Brace? No freaking clue. Is Abby the (view spoiler)[queen (hide spoiler)]? I sure as hell have no idea.3. Utter disregard for rational thought by Abby when it comes to Brace. Bloody hell, he raises up red flags all the time with his behavior, but she neither thinks about it or asks him about it. Follow up girl!!! Seriously?4. As much as I liked how everyone went along with the ridiculous world changing (by everyone I mean Abby and Lucy), it became VERY FRUSTRATING when it felt like everyone starting missing their brain. The seer angle tells us what needs to be done and why, and everyone goes along like what they were asked to do was to go for a picnic. Where's the fear and the freak outs? The denial? The heavy acceptance? The disbelief? Nothing is take. With a grain of salt here. You say it? By lord, let me accept it as truth and not think of my own because MY BRAIN MUST ONLY BE THERE AS DECORATION. Seriously... It worked in the beginning when a new world was opened, but not throughout the whole book.5. The explanations and the words? Got confused a few times. I thought the lalunas were mini planets or something instead of the stone. Whatever, I'm still confused about that. Oh, and don't even start on the name originality of the plants. First world? Spurn? What's the next one, Tune?Will I be reading the next one? No. It's nice for a boring read that holds your interest, but don't expect anything on an epic level. And the fact that there is a (view spoiler)[huge ass mission given at the end to pretty much destroy any end of series you might have in mind? How many books are there going to be in the series?(hide spoiler)]. Shoot me. Shoot me now. Is this ever going to end?

    This is a little different than the books I normally read because it involves aliens and travel to other planets, which is more sci-fi. But I thoroughly enjoyed the story, especially the characters, and I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series.The main characters were engaging and well developed and I loved the banter between Abigail and Lucy. They were so different and yet they fit together very well. Brace was strong and adorable and sometimes quiet and brooding and I liked the interaction between him and Abigail.The world building was wonderful, and the story flowed very well. I like that the story had romance but it was secondary to the main plot. It’s obvious the romance will be developed in the next book.If I had one negative thing to say it’s that the book ended on a cliffhanger, but seeing as how the other books are already published, that is moot at this point. Overall, a great read.

    Well heck!! What can I say other than I really liked this story. I haven't read a book in a while so I was happy to find that the book I picked was enjoyable. I think this indie author did an excellent job writing a unique tale that had thrills and suspense around every corner. I enjoyed the relationships and contributions of all the sub characters. Most of all, I loved the banter between the two main characters, Abby and Lucy. I also like the romantic connections taking place in this story. I am so curious about Brace, his powers, and what the power and connection he has with one of the MC's mean. This book is young adult friendly but I'm not sure what age group this series is directed to. All I know is that the book was good to my old self : )

    Question: Why is it that so many YA Romance stories have characters that are ultra-super-duper cool?Is it not enough to be brave, to find love, to find your place (calling) in life.Instead you have to be the lost empress, who will live forever, in a body that doesn't age past age 28, with the the hottest guy ever in love with you?Seriously this trend is why I do not read YA_Romance.Heck, it's why I read rarely read from the "romance" genre.I wanted to barf at the super-sweet-silliness of it all.There was zero substance to the characters. They are shallow Barbie dolls.At first I thought the plot was interesting yet predictable. As I read on it was just predictable.I will not be reading on in this series.

    I couldn't read this. The banter between the main character and her best friend was ridiculous, especially considering the situations they end up in. The plot wasn't able to hold my attention. This book was not for me

    Okay so what I want to say first and foremost is that Eve tried really hard and it shows. There was a brilliant idea behind this book and the theories were just amazing.And here comes the but….But this book reads like a rough draft rather than the fully finished book. The ideas chapters should have been more detailed and more flowing which they weren’t.Abigail/Aribella is a hybrid (where have I heard that before? Oh right, in almost every YA and NA novel out there) living in post apocalyptic New York in a training facility of sorts. She has dreams about this other world which is healthy and green unlike earth. She thinks it is just her sub conscious trying to cope with stress and dismisses the dreams as just dreams. Enter Quarn, her protector set on her by her mother after she was born and transported to earth via a dreamspan or something. Then the story is how she returns to her planet and has a happy reunion with her lost family and then sets off to find her fried lucy who was mysteriously kidnapped and her previously kidnapped brother ends up in the same compound which is run by her previous principal/recruiter/bitch Olden.As I said, this books reads like a rough draft full of brilliant ideas like parallel universes, evolutionary differences, wormholes, travelers/Walkers, people with abilities. A compound that enhanced cell regeneration to keep them looking young, energy banks, the concept of cosmic balance.But these ideas and theories, while brilliant, were not developed.Not to mention that when a narrator is eighteen the book should read like an NA and not a YA but this book read like a book that was narrated by a thirteen year old girl. I mean seriously? She grows up in ganglands and has had more than a few encounters with the Gangers but she doesn’t curse and is a virgin? Ridiculous.Look at how the Queen of all that Dies developes where the protagonist is around the same age and living in post apocalyptic world ridden with radiation and gangs and what not. It reads like a book. Also, Eve tried to put Abigail in the typical YA heroine mold. With her virgin status, her blushes when she looks at an attractive man, her getting queasy at the sight of blood?It was really freaking unbelievable. This story moved too fast and too sketchily for me to enjoy it.Not to mention that Brace was an asshole and the relationship between them was never fully introduced and explained. It read more like that Iron Queen and Ash thing rather than a proper NA.I picked up this book after reading Dragon Marked by the same author, which is really a freaking awesome book (my reason for picking up the Walker saga), but I was sorely disappointed. I will definitely pick up the following book because as I said the ideas behind this book were amazing.But this one doesn’t get more than 2 stars. 1 for trying a whole different genre and not spectacularly failing. And the second one for the awesome theories of the book.

    As surprising as this might seem, I actually didn't hate this book, well not all of it, at least...although I sure as hell hated a lot of scenes, not to mention the love interest is shit. I actually loved the humor, and some side-characters.

    A bit of a mixed bag this one. First World is a sort of sci-fi/post-apocalyptic cross. Our heroine and her best friend live in post-apocalyptic New York and their relationship is the source of much of the humour in the book (and a little bit of The Selection-style fixation on outfits and home decor as if that matters when your life is at risk/your friend is missing/the world is about to end etc). The best friend is human* but our heroine is something else entirely. Something special. And by special, I mean Special Snowflake. Said Special Snowflake runs around saving the day by being special. Meanwhile, 50% of the characters turn out to be related to her and the other 50% fall in instalove** - the heroine included. There are glimpses of decent characterisation and plot development, but these are unfortunately inconsistent. The grammar and syntax are mainly correct, but a little further proofreading would not go amiss. I feel like too much effort was put into selling further books in the series - hints and unanswered questions galore plus a cliffhanger ending - that would have been better spent on refining this first book.All told - three stars. It could use some work but it's not a bad freebie.*Or is she? Lots of "hint, hint"s dropped for future books.**Oh, and did I mention - I think I saw set up for a love triangle.

    All I have to say is that Jaymin Eve is one of the most talented authors I have ever come across. The different worlds that she is able to create are absolutely magical, and make you never want to leave. Not to mention her characters are so well developed that you can't help but get invested and fall in love with them. I will definitely be devouring anything Eve puts out. So far I have yet to be let down with anything she writes.

    An excellent read. The book was great because it had little romance and there wasn't insta love. I loved the parallel worlds and the mythical beings were described in detail. It was an action packed adventure that i would recommend fans of intergalatical relations, dystopia/ end of the world/ apocalypse, YA and romance fans to read. A great book.

    DNF after an hour or two into it.I had to give up on this one.Mostly because of the banter between the best friend and the MC. It was stupid.The best friend was stupid.There were too many 80s/90s pop culture references for this book to have been set SO far in the future. Hell, someone MY age (30s now) who was born in the 80s wouldn't have THAT many references, and I'm a pop culture queen. These teenagers far in the future just really wouldn't know.And the clothing. UGH. OMG. We had to be told everything the bestie was wearing, and how everything was priceless and vintage, and she went on an 'adventure' outside the wall wearing Louboutins? Ahem, excuse me.. VINTAGE Louboutins. (Because we were constantly reminded that they were vintage)I got as far as her getting to the other planet and going down a laundry chute head first because she was an idiot who closed her eyes because she was claustrophobic, but closed her eyes FEET away from the chute and so instead of getting in the chute properly fell in head first because she couldn't see where the hell she was going. What an idiot.I was done. I just couldn't. I will maybe check out the author's other works, but I can't do it with this series. I think I just need to also be very very careful dipping into YA. I didn't realize this was YA at first because I literally just went 'ooh, aliens. that's what I want right now.'

    This book was extremly good, I loved the different worlds i loved learning more about the two main characters oh man i almost don't know what to say about this book i enjoyed it so much.Her abilities while not used much were still interesting.To be honest i saw Olden coming from a mile away no lie.Everything else was interesting i liked hearing about the different worlds.So I'm going to recommend this book to all who while they love a end of the world book they also like a slash of sci-fi, a cute boy, and an adventure in the works.Oh boy was that fun :)

    Has real potential, but the pacing is bad and the plot is disjointed. Professional editing and mentoring could really make this into something. A lot of creativity, some very raw talent, but definitely needs polishing.

    A fun read. I've been meaning to start reading some of Jaymin Eve's books for a while now, and when I saw that the first 5 books in this series were free yesterday I immediately one-clicked all 5. I read the first book in the series, First World, last night in one sitting. I loved the characters and the storyline. The main female character and her bestie were hilarious, I love a story that has great banter and fun times between besties. And bonus, I have the next 4 in the series waiting to be read.

    I want to start off by saying that I think that there was a good idea and concept behind the book but it was the execution that made me like it less.The world has been overtaken by gangs. Abby and Lucy whom are best friends are being educated and taught combat in a rebel school so that they can overthrow this system in the future, but all is not what it seems. In light of learning this they escape the confines of the school not knowing what will happen next. Things got weirder from there. Abigail and Lucy finds themselves on another planet and they're suddenly being interrogated by aliens. Did I mention that Abby is one of them too? I regret reading the book because reading the plot was basically the whole book except a couple of details that I didn't enjoy. They enter this "first world" only to escape and by accident finds her parents (that sent her to earth in the first place). Even though she lived her whole life in fear and in her lonesomeness Abby seems to be very forgiving and accepts them immediately which is something I didn't get. It was this Kal-El moment esque, you know when his parents sends him to earth because they are all in danger and their planet is being destroyed except the fact that Abby's parents are very much alive. BUT, on the way to meeting her parents Abby's best friend Lucy vanishes. My problem was that all of the things that happened in this book happened suddenly.Abby is being attacked.Abby is saved by some supernatural being whose name is very close to that vegetarian soy-meatLucy and Abby leaves the Compound.Saved again by Quorn Quarn.Travels to another planet with superpowers.Lucy is kidnapped.Abby meets parent.Also meets boy from dream.I could go on and on. Imagine the list above. Reading the book was like that. It was like points on a list and not a continuous story.Another problem I had with the book was the fact that the characters weren’t that well developed. We are just introduced to some new character but they didn't mean anything because we didn't get to know them.It was one-dimensional and didn't feel authentic and I had a hard time connecting with any of them which is why I didn't feel invested in what happened. Abby (view spoiler)[gets stabbed (hide spoiler)] at one point and I honestly didn't care. That's when I know that it's time to move on. There was too much going on all the time for there to be any character or plot development. This books should really have been about one thing. Saving Lucy or surviving the attack or something but all of them happened at once making it hard to enjoy.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    It's haiku review time...first in a seriestwo broke girls meets Narniaromance red alertThis book is a bit like a bubbling pot of genre stew. There's dystopia (although I don't think it's need at all) and there's plucky girl protagonist. There's huge, macho men from another world who fall for the main girl, Abby. There's a large dose of the Chosen One. There's elements of fairy tales and crossing to other dimensions. Overall it doesn't really work. There is simultaneously too much and not enough. If reading as a dystopia, the world building on Earth is really blank. There are rebels, but no real idea of what they are rebelling against. There are gangs but no real sense of them either. Abby grows up in an orphanage for girls (add that little touch of Harry Potter too, I guess) but it doesn't really explain how or why this works. New York City is ripe for plunder in writing dystopias but I honestly think the story could have been written without it. Just make the story set in contemporary New York. If reading as a YA contemporary, you've got some great dialogue. Lucy, especially, has great lines. That's a good thing. It shows off these two girls as being fish out of water - which would have worked better if they really were normal girls from our normal world, thrust into alternate planets. But the dystopian background just jars with their 2010s dialogue. If reading as a romance, then ... I'm a bit lost. I don't read that genre deliberately. This romance is the 'girl needs a physically big and mostly silent watcher/protector' variety. The love is incredibly fast moving and mostly revolves around being next to a very tall man with an unusual accent. Brace doesn't really give much away when it comes to anything like a personality - except maybe an emotionally stunted silent type. Still, if you're after escapist romance this could be for you. If you're reading as science fiction, there are some interesting ideas here. It's probably more fantasy though as it involves magic and Earth being in a bit of a magic dead zone. There are seven books in this series, each involving a different world. There needs more detail in the actual world building, but maybe that'll happen as Abby moves on to the next world. It seems a bit rushed, although the author has obviously put in a lot of work behind the scenes. It just needs to show more of that behind the scenes planning. Overall I enjoyed the book, but did have moments when I slapped my forehead with the iPad. Some bits were frustrating. Some really funny.

    First of all, I received this book through the Goodreads First Reads giveaway.Now for my review - WOW!! This is the first book that I have been so excited about in a long time. I can honestly say that I LOVED this book. I immediately purchased the second book in the series as soon as I finished this one. I started this book last night and finished it today. I just couldn't put it down.It's a paranormal/futuristic book. The main character is Abigail and it is set in New York in the year 2035. She lives in a compound so that she can be safe from the gang ridden New York. She and everyone else has a very hard life. They are scraping to find food, there is no electricity, no food, no tv, no computers, nothing. She has a best friend named Lucy and she is a big part of the adventure that Abby goes on.It is a very fast paced book in my opinion. It started off kind of slow and I wasn't sure I was going to like it but once I read a few pages, I was hooked. I don't want to give the book away but she finds out that she has had a guardian all this time and that she comes from another world. That is when all her adventures start. She is a very sarcastic girl that you will love by the end of the book.It is an epic journey that I think you will enjoy.Again, I really enjoyed this book and I think you will too.

    I haven’t read a book like this in ages, and I completely had a good time. It falls in the YA category complete with virgin and fledgling attraction, which I often find a bit ho hum, and I still do. It becomes tiresome in so many YA books. It’s not that I expect them to “be there and done that”, it gets a bit old when it’s repeated in so often. I feel it doesn’t need to be expressed over and over again. I also found that the bouncing back and forth with the ‘I love him, I love him not’ syndrome was way too dragged out.The characters were nicely rounded and not bad company to spend an evening’s read with. The plot good, and developed along with a regular pace. This series is a quest with the main character identified as a prophetic savior. I think this is a bad idea. A series can get going in perhaps one book of a set, but when it’s continued on and it doesn’t settle well into the story as a whole. I’m sick of the whole concept. Too many books follow this idea, and we don’t need another quest added to the fantasy world genre, there are already so very many of them on the shelves.We will see what happens in the next book, maybe it can be carried off.

    A series I just might get addicted too.Gangs and End of the world craziness aren't the worst things to happen to Abby--stubborn, rule-breaking, impatient, and as curious as an insane kitten, orphan living in a compound of girls in the middle of apocalypse now New York City.Her compound Madame is a bitch. Her life is a series of survival training courses dictated by teachers who don't gaf. And the basic point of her life is that at the age of 18 she can get kicked out, hopefully find her way through gang riddled NYC, to the adult rebel compound and fight an unending war for a broken world. She's only got one friend, a mysterious 'watcher' and her weird dreams.BUT then a whole bunch of weird shit happens and ... turns out Abby's not even human.she's a half breed alien from another world with a destiny straight out of crazy prophesies-r-us. Add in the indelible hottie from her dreams into her reality and a whole lot of secrets, fighting, action, drama, and humor that makes this whole new world worth reading about. Definitely a Recommend.

    I will be devouring this series at a rapid pace. Oooooooh, I think I'm REALLY going to love this series. Abby and Luce are too cool and Brice makes my heart pitter patter. Really unique story concept, love the whole alien angle, and I just love the way the writer gives her characters, well, such character. They are funny as all get out and I feel a connection to them through their awesome use of sarcastic communication. I feel like I'm reading a book with a character created from my own personality and I freaking love it! Not only do you get a super neat, kick a** story, but you also get some comedy relief. I am 100% sure that I totally have a girl crush on this author and I will be devouring this series at a rapid pace.

    A couple of inconsistencies and things I don't yet understand, pertaining the First World and their powers. Also, I didn't understand why at this one crucial point they didn't just go back where they came from... The excessive use of the 'word' slang. Those were the points that lost the two stars. However, this was a super fun book to read! I loved Lucy and Abby, their relationship really reminded me of my bffs from High School. I thought that the state of Earth was interesting and actually quite possible. Anyhu, awesome sauce, will read the next ones :)Oh, I also liked that Abby was gorgeous and different, not a mousy 'omg how can he possibly like me I'm so plain blah blah blah'. So there. Girl power!

    It was an ok read. I felt like there were way too many descriptive words, and not enough meat. By the end of the book I found myself wanting to skim through all those paragraphs that were trying to describe and explain everything about the characters and worlds in the story. Why? Because it was still going at the end of the book, and therefore we didn't get enough depth for trying to understand everything. Given that, I have read other books by this author that I likes and therefore am hoping this book was simply setting up the series. I will at least give the second book in this series a shot. If it continues the same I'll probably not go any further.
