Angel Evolution (Evolution Trilogy #1) by David Estes

Genre: Fantasy YA
Publication Date: October 17, 2011
Format: ebook
Source: Gifted for review
Rating: 4/5 Stars

Goodreads 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.

My Opinion:
An interesting twist in the role of Angels and Demons in this book. It seems that the Angels are plotting to use Taylor, a girl with unusual aura, to wipe out the Demon population while the Demons are bent on preventing that from happening. 

I like the style of writing; the words just flowed and totally sucked me into the book! Interactions between Taylor, Gabriel, Samantha and Christopher sometimes made me smile. 

It's interesting to read the story from the POV of both the Angel and the Demon. The pace of the story started out slowly, letting us get to know the characters and the history behind the battle. When it got to the exciting part, which is the battle, it was over very quickly and seemed a little rushed. 

Overall, it is an enjoyable book. Looking forward to reading book 2!
