Evolution: AwakeningEvolution: Awakening by Hope Anika
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Evolution: Awakening is the first book in Hope Anika’s Ash Kyndal series. It’s a book that jumps straight into the action – Kyndal’s PI/bodyguard firm has unknowingly bitten off more than they can chew when they agreed to protect a young girl. Ash and her team, held together by complicated loyalties, must try and save each other and the girl from their mysterious and determined opponents.
It’s a thrilling book, with lots of mystery and action and a bit of an urban sci-fi/fantasy feel. As the story unfolds into the future, we also learn more about the backstories that brought the characters together. It’s a well-developed world, and the characters are interesting without being unbelievable.
One character I really liked is Wanda. Usually more comfortable with the tech side of things, Wanda is given her first chance at a bit of responsibility in the field with what is assumed to be a simple, low risk task. When things don’t go as planned, she must think on her feet and face her fears.
For me, this is a five-star book. It’s exciting and unique. I’m certainly looking forward to reading more of the series! I’d recommend it to action fans who enjoy sci-fi or urban fantasy, and are looking for something they will struggle to put down.
