Angel Evolution: Evolution Trilogy #1 (Book Review)
Author: David Estes
Series: Evolution Trilogy
Source: From author for review
Angel Evolution- the first book in the young adult fantasy trilogy: The Evolution Trilogy... When Taylor meets Gabriel at college, she is in awe of the subtle glow that surrounds him. No one else, not even her best friend, seems to notice. Something about him scares her. Is all as it appears? While Taylor struggles for answers, she finds herself in the middle of a century old war centered on one miraculous revelation: evolution.
I had been looking forward to reading this book ever since I read the summary, and I was definitely not disappointed. This is one of those books that I just couldn't put down; I had to know what was going to happen next.
Taylor and Sam are typical college students with quirks and personality that make them both great heroines in this war which they have just learned about from their unusual boyfriends. The twists, lies, and surprises keep coming in this book and I found myself always looking forward to finding out what happened next.
Chris and Gabriel likewise are complex and interesting characters. As the story progresses we learn more and more about them and their fantastic histories. At times I found myself rooting both for and against them. They make some of the greatest characters that I've read about in a long time.
This book will definitely be one that I will remember and go back to to read again. And I will most definitely be getting the rest of the trilogy.
