Summary:

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.



Review:

Angel Evolution starts with Taylor starting her college (university) life. She's with her best friend, Samantha aka Sam. When she sees Gabriel Knight she can always see light around him as if he's an angel. *Cough, cough* Although you could already guess with the book's title. And then Christopher turns up. Oh and did i tell you he's a demon?

Woa, woa, woa! Wait. Did i just read the whole book right? Yes i did! I love David! The plot that he has used for the book is too good to be true. Both the Angels and Demons want Taylor. She can give them energy for the war between them. From the start i thought the Angel was the bad guys and the Demons were the good guys but David shocks you when they form a different alliance; Gabrielle-the angel, Christopher-the demon and Taylor-the energy loader. I thought all of this added the spice to this book and it keeps the reader on the edge to know what will happen next. You never know. Maybe i'll be in the book?! Lol.

Mystery! I love mystery! And that is one of the things that i love about this book; mystery. The first half of the book just doesn't give you answers it gives you hints and clues. This book is filled with mystery and the best thing is it keeps you hanging! When i was reading the book ALOT of questions came into my head. For example, who was Gabrielle? Is he really Gabrielle as in one of the Archangels? Who is Taylor, exactly? Why do the want her? For now i will stop these lists of question.


I also thought that the wings peaked my curiosity. Wings! The way Davis puts a different way of putting wings on angel's NECK i don't get but it is original. However, i still love it if wing was stuck to the back and not on your necks! It sends me chills every time i read it! In addition, angels also have bright auras around their body and for some reason from the start only Taylor can see it. That means she's someone important. Ooooh!

Awwwww! Sam and Christoper's relationship is so cute! On the other hand, Taylor and Gabriel's relationship is.....urmmm.....well, you can't really describe it. Gabriel is confused if he should really hand her to the elders, but he loves her.  

The villain in this story is portrayed as a snake. I have alway hated snakes and i always will.Taylor describes the snake; it's skin and blood are 'inky-black' and it's eyes are 'blood-red'. Even though, it's a story David makes it feel real.

The only draw back in this book was that sometimes i think important descriptions are missing. However, i would still recommend this to people who love paranormal romance.

I want to read the next book but too bad i've got too much books in my TBR pile. It's too bad.

My rating:
Pleas, sir, can i have some more?

There was something lacking from my type of view.
