Yes, that pretty much says it all in this book that morphs from teen love angst into top notch urban fantasy romance, complete with the requisite love triangle. The Evangeline of Rachel Jonas is Evie Callahan, a spunky, smart, good souled high schooler in a new town who slowly grasps that the denizens of said town are not at all average. It’s a true pleasure watching Evie grow in realizing all of this, what it means to - and about - her and dealing with all that (along with that love triangle between her, Nick and Liam, both of whom are delicious in different ways). The Genesis of Evangeline is a really wonderful novel with a well crafted cast of characters, a well executed plot and a wonderfully built world full of wolf, dragon and other shifters. As the Kindle blurb says, a “fallen kingdom destined to rise again”. I’m looking forward to the next book in The Lost Royals Saga so that I can happily follow along.
That cannot be said about this book. It grabs you from the first sentence and all you can do is hold on for the ride. While the story has some of the typical teenage stuff, it's not whiny and drama filled. The characters actually have character and a back bone.
I have KU but found myself buying this one and pre-ordering the next. I'm hoping my daughter will like it and we can read the series together. This is a brilliant start to a new series and I'm eagerly awaiting the next book.
OMG! I loved it so much, I can not even tell you how much I loved this book. The Genesis of Evangeline was everything I could have wanted in a story and so much more. The characters were written so well and had depth while the story was intriguing, it pulled me into that world and kept me invested in the story until the very end.
The Genesis of Evangeline is all about shifters and not just lycans (werewolves) no there are also dragon shifters and who doesn't love dragons. Add in action, weird occurrences, rogue wolves, a shifty shifter government, a dramatic past, a problematic present and a super hot shifter love triangle and you will have a book so good that it will have you begging for the next book as soon as you have finished the first.
The story is told from two point-of-views one being Evangeline who is new to town and the other being Nick who is on the football team and is more than what he seems. Evangeline (Evie) has a just moved to town and is having a bit of difficult not only fitting in but also at home as well. Evie is brave, stubborn, kind, funny and a little feisty. She is a good person with a good head on her shoulders but girlfriend was in denial for a while. Evie did note the strange things but choice to totally ignore the situation at times until she couldn't ignore it anymore. However I do love the fact that when she messes up she owns it and she tries to figure things out. Including the many things Evie has to figure out and face she also has to come to terms with her place in the supernatural world, because Evie is something special in more ways than one.
As I mentioned before the other pov is Nick, he's not what anyone let alone Evie expect him to be. Nick is not only on the football team but he is a bit of a closet geek and likes things that he doesn't share with anyone because he didn't feel anyone would understand. He is also cute, kind, a loyal friend, has a good relationship with his family and is totally ga-ga for Evie. When it comes to Evie, Nick is so adorable, he is a big softy who deeply cares for Evie and wants to protect her. He is also very understanding in certain situations and he also has a place in the supernatural world that he will have to figure out if he has any hopes of being with Evie.
The love triangle.... this is one of those triangles where I like both of the guys and I can't possible chose. Liam is the other third of this triangle and let me just say he is amazing. Liam is stubborn, loyal, dependable, sweet, and fierce when it come to Evie, not to mention he is very handsome. I can't get into too much detail without revealing to many things but he and Evie share a connection that neither can deny for long. I both envy Evie and wouldn't want to be her because there is no way I could chose between the two.
The world in The Genesis of Evangeline is an alternate world from ours. Not only do shifters, witches and other supernatural exists but so do magic. The shifter world is complex with origin stories (partial told in this book), past lives, an evil sovereign, a people trying to stand up and fight back against oppressors, with mysterious pasts and a future they will have to fight for. I was so involved with this story it killed me when it was over, I am addicted to the story and I have to find out what happens next. I plan on buying the book in print (yes it was that good) and I will get the next one as soon as I am able to. If you enjoy really good stories with shifters, magic and dragons then I highly suggest that you pick this one up.
