A dystopian city, created after the Tidal Wars. The Tidal Wars were fought between the Angel factions of Tainted and Caduceans. Alchemy and angel-bloods have been outlawed in the cities by humans. However there are some still hidin' within' the city. Chela and her twin Micha are some of them.
Chela's twin is in a comatose state after "falling" from a roller coaster. Chela on the other hand is of the belief that he was pushed by the Tainteds, because her brother knew something and had quit taking their Ale-meds the are supposed to take twice a day. Some time has passed and Chela forgets to take hers one day and finds that she feels more energetic and her powers are starting to appear. Chela is of Epiclesium, a higher tier angel/human hybrid.
Chela is looking for answers as to what happened that fateful day at the park and a cure to help her brother. Along the way she meets Faris, a cursed Caducean hiding as the city's Champion and Seth, a Tainted hiding as a Thoughtmaster of training. Both want to use her for their own purposes to start or win another war. Who is she to trust, Faris or Seth?
I really enjoyed reading this book. There is plenty of action to even out the romance. The book flows nicely, not even an occasion speed bump. If you liked Fallen, I think you would enjoy reading this series also.(less)

She is starting her first year of college. Since she can remember she has had nightmares about a pitch black snake with blood red eyes. When she gets to school the dream changes and she is once again with the snake but she is dehydrated and two figures appear one bright and glowing and the dark and foreboding. One gives her water and one gives her sand. Enter Gabriel and Christopher. Gabriel has been sent on an assignment to bring Taylor to the angels and Christopher has been sent to keep Taylor safe. Angels and demons have been fighting since the both were born. Angels want to defeat the demons and use humans as slaves and harvest the auras. Demons want to co-habitate with the humans and protect them from the angels. If this sounds interesting, wait it gets better. I'm not giving away anything else. Read it and see for yourself! I enjoyed reading this book and will definitely be reading the other two books: Demon Evolution and Archangel Evolution. The book was well written. It wasn't choppy or hard to follow.(less)

I read it all the way through and parts were good, but left me wondering what in the hell everything had to do with eachother. Where was everything tied together? Maybe this book is just setting the scene for story. I guess I'm just left with a lot of questions...(less)
