Book Review: Angel Evolution - David Estes
Something about him scares here.
Is all as it appears? While Taylor struggles for answers, she finds herself in the middle of a century old war centred on one ridiculous revelation: evolution. (Taken from Goodreads)
Review - I won this e-book from a give-away from Great Minds Think Aloud. Paranormal fiction is very popular, particularly in the YA genre. I have received quite a few of these books to review recently and although there is a very similar theme running through - good versus evil, angels versus demons, they vary in both writing and readability. One commonality I have found is that when there are series, the first book is often scene setting and is not as good as the follow ons. This is not always the case, but I have found it to be more often than not. I suspect Angel Evolution is one of these. I have only read Book One, therefore I cannot actually back up this assumption.
We meet angels and demons with a difference. This story turns the angels are good, demons are evil, belief on its head. Our beautiful angel, shining brighter than natural light is not brighter than white at all, telling lies to further the cause of his kind. Our not so evil demon, although tall, dark and handsome, dimming the light somewhat, comes from a group of demons who are able to live alongside humans without causing any harm. They would like to continue this existence of living in harmony but the angels have other plans. Meet our heroines two human college girls, one whose aura shines brighter than other humans and who has the ability to see the angels light and demons darkness.
A battle commences. Who wins? Who is telling the truth? Can the angel Gabriel be saved? Read the series to find out. 3*
