Book Review: EVO Shift (EVO Nation Series: book 2); by K. J. Chapman

Book Review: EVO Shift by: K. J. Chapman

She killed him, but did it make a difference?

Her kind has been exposed, abused, and segregated, and now Teddie Leason is top of Britain’s most wanted list at just nineteen. Teddie has to decide whose side she is on, what she fights for, and whether it’s worth her life.

How can she protect the man she adores, the Uncle who has taken her under his wing, and her unfaltering friends, when she can barely take care of herself? Dealing with new power and a history that has long since been forgotten, has rendered the world’s most powerful EVO vulnerable and at risk.

When will she be dealt a winning hand? Could a clandestine, renegade group of EVO change not only her fate, but that of everyone affected by this unprecedented war? And how does Teddie fit in a world bracing for a shift of unfathomable magnitude?

5 stars for EVO Shift

It’s a rarity for a book two to out-match its predecessor, but that’s exactly what EVO Shiftevo did. If you thought EVO Nation brought it hard, this book redefines the phrase. And the ending… I was actually on the edge of my seat, in a fright about what was happening…

The development of peripheral characters was great, and I enjoyed the way Teddie was able to connect with so many different personalities in a way that wasn’t forced or out of character. It’s true that some people, leaders, are simply able to bring the best out of people, and Teddie is one of those. This connection she finds with new friends and peers she’s thrown together with helps create a visceral reaction when Teddie finds herself in situations that were far from where she thought she’d be.

While Teddie’s relationship with Adam is a major factor in the book, the balance of the story never tips too far, and for that, I am grateful. I’m a sucker for a great love story as much as the next girl, but this books central theme is not that. Teddie is a kick ass character whose love happens to augment her life, rather than take it over. We need more of that kind of love.

Like EVO Nation, I just really liked this book. It was a page turner that I was forced to put down when real life could no longer be avoided, only to be picked back up at any spare moment a page or two could be fit in.

I said in my review of EVO Nation that Teddie Leason is a character I look forward to following through many adventures, and that opinion is only reinforced after EVO Nation‘s second installment.
