My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Evolution: Awakening (An Ash Kyndal Novel) by Hope Anika is a romantic suspense. The author keeps a steady full-speed ahead pace throughout this story from the character introductions to the story line to the stream of events that unfold. This novel is loaded with elements that take charge and bring forth unexpected chains of events starting at the very beginning of this epic book. Hope Anika delivers a take charge suspense with all the required pieces to make this a story that takes the reader into the story and trails them along on the journey along with the main and secondary characters. I enjoyed the mystery and unknown as they fell apart in the story, it kept me engaged, enthralled and wanting more.

Evolution: Awakening by Hope Anika is a fast paced and action packed story that is unpredictable. The drama and action jumps right in from the very beginning and doesn’t let up all the way through. The world and characters that Hope has created are intriguing and at times thought provoking.

Ash is a strong willed and independent woman who is also stubborn, and sassy. The sudden death of her Uncle means she is left to run the PI firm and she suddenly finds herself thrust into something that is bigger than she ever could have imagined and she is faced with finding the truth whilst trying to protect her client and stay alive.

The story was intense and the mystery is palpable and will have you trying to piece it all together whilst sitting on the edge of your seat. There are a few unanswered questions that I am sure will pick up in the next book which I am eagerly awaiting.

I loved this books. Its full of adventure from the first page. The twists and turns are amazing and the ending has left me dying to read the next one.

Ash inherited a PI firm from her uncle, along with her cousin and the broken birds Charlie brought in she embarks on protecting what seems like a harmless girl from supposedly a gang boss. However things are definately not what they seem.

So starts a journey that involves genetics, cults and danger at every turn

Evolution: Awakening by Hope Anika is a book designed to be so suspenseful you can’t help but keep reading.
I have to say the blurb to this book was one of the most intriguing but worrying ones I think I’ve ever read. A circus person turned PI business owner. This was either going to be genius or an absolute disaster. I was so pleased that o have this book a go because it turned out to be amazing!!!
Ash was incredible. I can’t decide what it was I liked the most about her. She was such an engaging character.
I also loved how the book would have you right on the edge and then just jump you to another character altogether. If kept me. On edge the whole way through.
This is a new author for me and I really enjoyed how well she did this book. She real knew how to get my interested and keep me hooked from the first page to the last. This is one book I would highly recommend.

When i started this story I thought I either had a bad copy of the book or it was a continuation of a previous story. Nope – it is just the way the author started this great story.

The story has originality, great world building, interesting characters and imagination. Told from multiple points of view, at times the pacing is so frenetic that it is maddening and other times it was just right.

This is one of those books that i will keep in my “to be read again” pile because I am definitely going to need to reread before reading the next in the series. I have questions that may be answered in a re-read.

The author is new to me and I will be reading them again in the future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Evolution: Awakening, an Ash Kyndal story by Hope Anika is a suspenseful attention keeping book. I could not put it down until I was finished. Hope Anika characters are fully developed and easy to relate to as if they were in our world. Ash inherits a PI firm from her uncles and that is were it all begins. She went from circus lifestyle to that of a PI. I am not sure hon one goes from circus crew to a PI but Hope Anika pulled it off nicely. Ash did not realize what she was getting herself into. There is some rough times ahead and Ash needs to figure it out because there is a storm coming and she needs to be on the “right side” if she hope to conquer her battle.

Evolution: Awakening blew me away. It is the first book I have read by Hope Anika, but I want to read more now! The summary drew me in and I thought it would be interesting, but it far surpassed my expectations. The book starts right in the middle of the action, no need to start slow and set the ground work. It set off with a bang, and never let up. The story did take a long time to get to the WHY, which was frustrating. However, I never let up- I read the book in less than 2 days. It is one of the most fascinating stories I have read, with great imagination and story building. I like the way it was told in two parts, to the same story. There is the story of Wanda, Eva and Wylie, on the run from madmen. And the other half of the story is Ruslan and Ash trying to solve the mystery from the back end. The description doesn’t tell much, so I don’t want to spoil anything, but wow oh wow. Highly recommend this suspense filled mystery. Parts of the puzzle are slowly uncovered for a big reveal. Couldn’t put it down!

When I first read the blurb for this book I wasn’t entirely sure I was going to enjoy it but oh my gosh I am so, so glad that I decided to read it because it was such an exciting, intriguing and captivating read. The authors writing style was very creative and it didn’t take me long to become fully absorbed into what I was reading and I was hooked from beginning to end. This was a great introduction to Hope Anika as an author! The pace and flow of the story was great and I loved reading about the characters. They all had their role to play in the storyline and I enjoyed piecing everything together. The story was unpredictable and this made it even more exciting to read.
I think this book was a really interesting start to this series and I am looking forward to see where it goes! Evolution: Awakening was a great read and one that I highly recommend!

Okay, I DID NOT expect to love this book as much as I did. I am the first to put a sci-fi book on the back burner to read something more in line with rom-coms and steamy reads. I am so glad that I did not do that with this book! Not only did I gain a new author to check out but I now have a new series that I can’t wait to get my hands on and follow in the near future.

Evolution: Awakening Hope brings us Ash, one female MC that I just couldn’t get enough of. She inherits her uncle’s PI firm and it is the absolute last thing she wants. Just when you think this is enough of a story arc there is more introduced with the mysterious things that start to happen around Ash. Will she be able to handle everything that is coming her way? I can’t wait for the next one! I have to know what will come next. Thanks so much for the fantastic change of pace Ms. Anika!
