Publisher's Summary

Seven years after the Judgment virus, also known as the EVO virus, infected the planet, a portion of the Earth's population of humans has died while another portion received powers and abilities. Superhumans now walk the Earth. Some use their abilities for good, taking up the mantle of heroes, while others become villains. The rest join and form superhuman military units within their respective countries, building toward another possible Cold War.

Sophia Dennison, the first and most powerful superhuman on the planet, who inadvertently changed the world, is unable to fit in with the race she was once a part of and unwilling to embrace the race she created. Living a life of semi-isolation, she uses her power and abilities to help people as she sees fit, taking no mantle. However, a new threat to the planet will force her toconfront not only several spectrums of her past but ultimately her destiny.

Dont know why I waited so long

What did you like best about this story?

The author uniquely references certain songs in the story, and when I listened to the songs while reading the book it really pulled me into the story. The author also throws in references to different anime that only anime fans will get.

Which character – as performed by Carla Mercer-Meyer – was your favorite?

Sophia

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A must for all anime fans, and on par with any of the Marvel movies

Still a Good Series

I love the premise in this series and especially love the main character, who is equal parts strong, clever, and sassy. The story got off the rails a few times with the introduction of a great deal more characters. However, by the end it all wrapped up nicely and I'll be looking forward to book 3.

Love this feminist perspective of a superhero

The first book was ok as it had a lot of cliches in the plot and dialogue. I still enjoyed it and was hoping the second book would cover new ground and it did. The narrator was very good and the story was entertaining and absorbing. I look forward to a third book.

Not recommeded to buy.

What disappointed you about EVO Uprising?

There were too many language glitches in the book. The word exponential is used wrong with many other words.

What could Kipjo K. Ewers have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not give his characters infinite power abilities.

Which character – as performed by Carla Mercer-Meyer – was your favorite?

Carla Mercer-Meyer did fine with the material she had.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Very little I had to force myself to finish it.

Any additional comments?

He seriously needs to have someone proofread his work. Also I am not pleased with this limited form of review. It's difficult to express yourself in less than 15 words. Obviously you don't want to have any bad reviews on your site.

Loved it, upgrade from #1

What made the experience of listening to EVO Uprising the most enjoyable?

The reader did a great job, the story was engaging, some of the characters had depth and the main star (Sophia) had some very real emotional logic.

What other book might you compare EVO Uprising to and why?

#1, duh.

What about Carla Mercer-Meyer’s performance did you like?

SHE did well in mixing her inflections and "voices" between the characters to pull it off well. Sometimes the editing forced her sentances to almost overlap. Not so bad in book #2, but #1 it was noticable.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The return of #3 was like "Whhaaaa"!

Any additional comments?

If you do a #3, please stop elevating the characters (Sophia and #3) power without end. I get it that they get stronger to avoid being hurt the same way twice, but even physics has it's limits when you have a pissed off woman destroying moons, basking in Mercury-distance sunlight and eating nukes.

Awesome superhero story

featuring a black woman who is the first but not the last superhero to protect the earth
The characters were as fascinating as the plot. I hope this is only the beginning of a great series. Excellent sci-fi. The author and reader did a wonderful job bringing the story to life.

Too Awesome

The very Best Audiobook I've ever listened to Kipjo Ewers did an amazing job painting such vivid pictures with the whole flow of the story. And I think I'm in love with the narrator's voice. Carla Mercer-Meyers can read me a bedtime story any day. Lol. I look forward to the next book in the series!
