This was a short prequel to the series, showing our team out gathering supplies and trying to evade capture by The Bane, their robotic enemy. There was the tension of a zombie supply raid in this book so I'm not surprised that I enjoyed it.

I read this book a few years back at the height of my YA dystopia reading, so I added the series to my wishlist. However since then, I am less interested in the genre and I avoid YA books with insta-luv and love triangles so I won't be reading on with the series. If you like that stuff in your YA you might well like the series so try this book free and see what you think.

I’ve been wanting to get into the Eden Trilogy for some time. The storyline sounds great and it’s something I’ve wanted to check out. While I haven’t started the trilogy just yet, I thought I was a good idea to throw one of the short stories into my reading pile.

I was pleased to read The Raid, as I feel that it was made me want to read the full novels even more. This story is fairly short, but it does a good job a giving the reader a glimpse into the world of this series.

There are a few characters established, and through that the reader can get a feel for what’s happening now that the world has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland for humans. There’s a new threat in the world, and without mentioning what it is, I thought it was a great mixture of the horror and sci-fi genres.

I’ll be bumping the Eden Trilogy up on my reading list after reading The Raid.

This is a really short insight into the world in which this series is set. It's entertaining, and will make you want to read more, but at 6 pages, it is incredibly short, and not much happens. I'd suggest reading 'the bane' instead, unless you manage to pick this up for free.
7 out of 10.
