This post is a #BookReview but it is so good and I will never be able to say enough about it so I wanted to point out that this is a #recommendation post, really.

re.EVOLUTION was co-written by Guido Baechler and Joel-Mark Harris.
It was impossible to put down.

If you like post apocalyptic and zombie stuff, you’ll like this. But if you don’t like those things, you’ll still like this. It’s not zombies.. it’s Evolution… done over, subsequent to what we have done to our planet and our food supply.

And it’s currently listed at just two bucks so what do you have to lose? Go go go!

Pelican Freak’s 5-star review:

I’m going to preface this review with a warning –
I’ll absolutely never be able to do this book justice, I’ll never remember to include everything that I loved about it here.

That said – this book was insane! In a good way.
When I stepped away from it, I missed it horribly. I actually am still thinking about the characters and dying for Volume 2! It really stays with you – at least it did for me.

When the book opens, I’m intrigued… I think it might be a futuristic deal of a time I cannot relate to.
This isn’t the case at all. While it is obviously set in the future, it doesn’t seem far-fetched at all. In fact, based on the explanation later given (sorry to be vague, but I don’t want to spoil anything for you) it is completely plausible and makes me a little bit terrified that it’s going to come true – and not super far into the future!!

Ewan clearly is making the best of a dire situation… it’s easy to wonder why he still bothers except – he does have a reason. His son. His son has a hard time remembering or relating to life as we know it now – even though it wasn’t that long ago for him … the world is just that drastically different that it’s hard to imagine a different one.

The Creatures – they’re not zombies. Don’t just think “this is another zombie book” because that’s not the case here.
Again – I do not want to post any spoilers but – there are a couple of different species and they can be highly intelligent. Animalistic yes, but also hunanistic – that’ll make sense if you read it. They truly are a new race (or races.. read the book).

Naturally – cannibalism is a thing and the humans that have survived have sorted themselves into packs so it’s dangerous EVERYwhere.
Make a home for yourself, find a means to survival – but it’s so fragile because of the situation.

This book is SO interesting, while being adventurous and thriller-esq.
Truly a fascinating, addicting read and I honestly cannot wait for more.

Cover: Gorgeous and appears to be professionally done. Fitting. LOVE that it’s relevant to the content and not generic.
Formatting: Well done, book is easy on the eyes. Appears professional.

Highly highly recommend … cannot say that enough.
Check out the gorgeous cover:
