Publisher's Summary

Laurence Danjuma was a young man on the straight and narrow, with hopes and dreams of making a better life for himself and the father who raised him. Fate and circumstance had a different idea in mind, breaking not just his body but his will.

Now, as he's on the brink of death, an ancient power within his family's legacy awakens to both save his life and place him on the path to his destiny.

As Laurence unlocks secrets about his true bloodline, he will stumble upon a dark one that will put not only his life on the line again but also the lives of the entire human race.

Will Laurence find the strength to take up the mantle handed down to him in order to stand against the looming threat that could bring about the extinction of every single human on the planet Earth?

Can he be the hero he never expected to be?

Outstanding Read/Listen

Truly as good as the first two in the series. I laughed, cried and got completely absorbed into a world that is unfortunately not my own.

Amazing story and narration.

Started off kind of nervous thinking "there's no way this could be anywhere as good as the first two books. What was Kipjo thinking trying to tell me stories about a different character in the EVO universe?" But the story turned out amazing! It's been many months since I listened to an audiobook this gripping. Character development, narration, and vivid details of the character's adventures were on point. I really look forward to the next book in the series.

Such a beautiful premise of a beautiful story!

This book was flawlessly written! I love Lawrence's fall from grace, his struggles to becone a better man. And upon his redemption , he found a home, true happiness, and a purpose. It is very spiritual. I loved it!!!

The BEST of its genre

The EVoVerse is amazing! I love this series for the diversity and the unique non-standard back stories of each hero! From the First to Eye of Ra you not only get a great super Hero adventure but some well written social comentary. Kipjo Ewers needs to make these movies!!

Not the best

I like the world Ewers is building as a whole, but this isn't quite what I expected.

Without trying to give away too much of the plot.. it's a "how I got my powers" superhero book, with major Egyptian themes. His "power level" goes from zero to over 9000 in the blink of an eye, and it seems a bit silly.

About the best thing it does is set the stage for Book 3 of The First series.

Overall average but not great. If you are a fan of the series you should read it however as it fills in some holes in previous plots.
