Summary

Devastated by her choices, Candace Bristol is on the brink of losing it all: her mind, her hope, everything she thought she was.

But from the ruins rises new purpose. An enemy has emerged and it will take everything to combat this new threat. Broken as she is, picking up the pieces and carrying on might be the hardest battle to win, but it's either fight, or lose what little she has left.

Amongst the wreckage, hope still burns. The flicker of a flame kindles something within her she thought was dead. Love can break you. So, too, can it bring you back to life.

Straight back into the action where book 1 left me

I love how the second novel jumps straight back into where book one left me . I for one am so glad to enter back into Candace's world . I adore the fact that the author narrates this series of books as she is ideal to tell the story how it should be read. The second book mirrors the first exactly in terms of how gripped it kept me. I didnt want to put the novel down. I love the romance between candace and Jackson. The chemistry is completely on point. I cant wait to read the third and final installment and will be sorry for this series to end . I was given this book by the author/narrator in return for an honest and unbiased review

Even better then the first.

I got this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review.
This book is even better than the first. The plot is very captivating and doesn't disappoint. The narration is very good and encapsulates the feel of the book well. The main characters emotion journey is also very well developed and interesting through out. All in all I would recommend to give this book a listen.

Amazing!

Picks right up where ANGEL leaves off. This is a high intentensity series that is masterfully written. SAGE is just as intriguing and captivating as ANGEL and will keep you continuing to listen, nonstop. At the end of ANGEL a very devastating event occurs, but we see that it makes room for other characters to flourish and connections to deepen in SAGE. Also, some super cool stuff happens to our 'superhero' characters. We are also unknowingly given some breadcrumbs that will play a relatively important role in HEX. Simply amazing, and I've gotten super attached to these kick * * s characters and love where the author is taking their relationships. We get some twists an dramatic events throughout this one. I'm excited to see what happens next in HEX.

Another amazing performance by this author/narrator, just as with ANGEL. Great consistency between character voices and perfect timing when exhibiting emotions. I continue to be wholly impressed by Starla Huchton.

Evolution SAGE

Candace’s dream of becoming a superhero has come true. She has the coolest ability to control water and her ability is one of the strongest in her class. Now Dr. P has announced that they have finally created the next step in the superhero evolution process. SecondAry Genetic Enhancement or SAGE. Candace and a few from her class volunteer to become the first supercharged supers.
I admit, I was a bit underwhelmed by the second round of super enhancements Candace received. They seemed to barely change her abilities aside from making her hair weird and giving her more control over small amounts of water. The water bullets were pretty cool.
This second book seemed more focused on her relationship with Jackson than with the superhero aspect of the story. I do enjoy romance novels though so I did still really like this book. And that cliffhanger ending had me glad I already have the third book in my hands!
4 stars for Evolution Sage!

Exciting but not as good as the first book

This was another good young adult book. It’s an exciting story that reminds me of books like the hunger games. It’s brutal at times, and it’s sometimes hard to see who is the heroes and who is the villain. Candice starts out being a naive girl just out of high school, but very quickly she learns that the line between right and wrong isn’t always easy to see. She has to evolve as her powers do and make hard choices to save other people and herself. The question I find myself asking is will she be able to live with herself when her evolution comes to am end?
The narrator does a good job at bringing the story to life. She is really good at playing the different roles.

So Candace made some stupid choices at the end of book one and she totally redeemed herself in this one. Book one was good but this one was even better. Everything I want to talk about would give spoilers away for book one. so I'm just gonna say this series so far is really really good.

Even better than Book 1

The author dug deeper into the characters in this second book in the Evolution series. There are some tropes to romance, there's just no getting around that. It's part of the reason I typically don't care for the genre... what many find a comforting storyline, I usually find too predictable.

However, just because I don't usually care for romance doesn't mean I can't appreciate good writing. And these books are VERY well written. I am writing this review after having listened to all three in the series, and I can tell you right now that this book, the second of three, is by far my favorite.

Ironically enough, it's the secondary characters that made the book for me. They are fully fleshed out, and (despite their superhero status) very relatable. There is one point in particular, where the loss of a secondary character was so well written that it literally choked me up.

Well done, Ms. Huchton.
