Summary

Candace Bristol has always been obsessed with comic books, but in a world where the nightly news often mirrors these inked stories, her dreams of becoming a real superhero could actually come true. After being rescued by members of the government's AdvaNced Genetic EvoLution (ANGEL) Project four years ago, getting recruited for this elite team is all she's wanted.

Now 18, she's finally reached her goal after years of study and physical training, but little could have prepared her for life as a genetic experiment. As though coming to terms with her new ability to manipulate water isn't tough enough, she never expected to be swept off her feet by one of her fellow recruits.

With genetic alteration, the threat of physical and mental instability hangs over every superhero like a shadow. When one of their own tumbles over the edge of madness, Candace will have to choose between protecting the world, and saving the one who holds her heart.

Full of action and very original

This is the first book I have read by Starla Huchton and I'm shocked that I haven't heard about her before . This book is such an impressive start to a brand new series n I love the development of the characters and it's nice to have such a feisty female lead character who isn't scared to say exactly what she thinks .It is full of action and is bursting with originality. Whilst the first novel ends very bluntly it's a great lead into the next book that will follow highly recommended. I was given this book by the author/narrator in return for an honest and unbiased review

What a good book

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

The plot interested me from the start, it's had me wanting more the further I listened, the characters and story are interesting, and the narration is very captivating and pleasant to the ear.

Excellent writing, superb narration, READ IT!

This book was a wonderful, perfect balance of romance coupled with dashes of heartbreak. From a literary standpoint, the plot development was excellent as was the character development. I was truly able to become completely engrossed in this book, and even feel like I was a part of their world.
In my experience, it takes an exceptional writer to draw their readers in, in such a way that they forget the world around them. This book definitely accomplishes that.
I highly reccomend both the print and audibook for this piece, as the narration is very well done. The writing is also very well done.
Excellent work, you have gained a true fan.

Not what I usually read, but glad I gave it a shot

First, know that I hardly EVER leave reviews (long story, but there are reasons). Second, know that I am not usually a follower of super hero fiction. Third, I'm not a big fan of romance, either.

That being said, I'm a big proponent of indie writers, and love audiobooks, so when I won the Evolution audiobooks in a contest, I thought I would give them a try.

I'm so glad I did. This series has made me break my review embargo.

The Evolution story is a mashup of romance and superhero fiction, well written, and well narrated.

Starla Huchton, you've gained a new fan.

Slow story, great execution.

Once the book got about halfway through, it was pretty exciting., but I feel like the author decided she was going to account for every bit of the ANGEL program, regardless of whether or not it was interesting.

The characters were well developed and intriguing, and the drama was compelling, but it felt like the first several chapters could have been a one to two chapter summary and still been sufficient.

Addictive and creative

overall it was a very enjoyable book. the story was pretty good but it was the lore that really sold it. I do wish she focused on the Angels a little bit more but it was good nonetheless. It wasn't the best book I've ever read but this is definitely a good one.

Epic!!!

Wow! This has to be one of the most original story lines I've ever heard. I can't even begin to put in to words how magnificent of a story this is. Has a little bit of sci-fi, if you consider super heroes created by science as sci-fi; we get a tragic love story as well.

I've listened to this author as a narrator before and am continually impressed with her abilities with each new performance. This is an author who doubles as a narrator and is able to give us a fabulous performance, too. Bravo!

Surprisingly Good.

I am always leary about listening to a book that is Naratted by the Author, but Huchton does a great job and sounds like she should be a professional at both. Great job and even better story.

AWESOME!

I absolutely loved it! This book is full of action, witty banter and romance. The narration is superb and gives the story that extra flair! It will keep you entertained. This author does a great job with the character builds and plot. This was my first book by this author but definitely not my last. I look forward to reading more in this series.
