Synopsis: A virus that had once been contained has returned, and soon no place will be left untouched by its destruction. But when Cheyenne wakes up in Elysian Fields--a subdivision cut off from the world and its monster-creating virus--she is thrilled to have a chance at survival.

At first, Elysian Fields,with its beautiful houses and manicured lawns, is perfect. Teo Richardson, the older man who stole Cheyenne's heart, built it so they could be together. But when Teo tells Cheyenne there are tests that she and seven other couples must pass to be worthy of salvation, Cheyenne begins to question the perfection of his world.

The people they were before are gone. Cheyenne is now "Persephone," and each couple has been re-named to reflect the most tragic romances ever told. Everyone is fighting to pass the test, to remain in Elysian Fields. Teo dresses them up, tells them when to move and how to act, and in order to pass the test, they must play along.

If they play it right, then they'll be safe.

But if they play it wrong, they'll die.

My Review: This book was really good. It was very confusing at first and I wasn't very convinced, but once you start understanding a few things you get sucked in. It was compelling, eerie and strange. I thought it was pretty fresh and I enjoyed it very much. I wasn't very enthused with Cheyenne because she wasn't a very strong personality in my opinion. It's like she just let herself be tugged by Teo like his little puppet, no matter what. It's very sinister and dark and I got goosebumps reading about it. I can't be sure exactly what my thoughts are on this whole scene but I can tell you that it was very creative and I loved how different it was and how incredible it all was. It's a wild ride, so sit tight and enjoy :)
