Summary: 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.
Review: Well just from the title I could tell that this book was going to be interesting and interesting it was - but even more so than I expected! Angle Evolution was an amazing book! Full of angels, demons, gargoyles, and special humans (or rather special human :p) there was nothing I didn't love.
My favorite character is Gabriel for sure. As one of the main characters in the story, Gabriel has quite a stressful role to play :p I can't say exactly what that role is because I'd be giving away the book, but I can say that I absolutely loved how sweet he was to Taylor! :) I think I almost died when he fell in love with her :p But with all of the lies surrounding their relationship, I was seriously thinking it might not last. That anticipation throughout the whole book was one of the things that kept me up until 2:00 in the morning trying to finish :D
About Taylor... I think it's awesome that she's not one of those mushy, clingy girls - she's really independant and likes to be in control which I think is great, especially in this day and age :p The role that Taylor plays in the story is extremely important and I think the way she handled everything was perfect! Were I in her shoes, I can only hope I'd be the same :p Her best friend, Samantha (Sam) was also a great character in the story along with Chris, the rival of Gabriel.
With a huge war between angels and demons, and these four tangled in the middle of everything, Angel Evolution is a book you definitely don't want to miss!
