Publisher's Summary

The Beast Realms are under threat: The land, water and air are poisoned. Its leaders are power-crazed and its people are divided. Worse still, strange and powerful Beasts have started dropping from the sky, causing carnage.

With the Beast Realms in turmoil and a ragtag group of insanely strong assassins on Team Venom’s tail, their chances of survival are slim. Escaping through man-eating jungles, seeking allies in underwater and treetop cities, Art and his team need to forge alliances to grow stronger.

As he grows in power, Art is able to unlock more and more secrets of his Gray Knight class. But skill alone will not be enough - to beat the overwhelming odds, he must tap into the unbridled power of the Beasts themselves....

Change is coming and the weak will die out - unless they evolve.

Learning about the Beast realms

I hadn’t heard about this series of books, but now I’m very interested in listening to book One. There were some parts that perhaps were a bit slow, but I think they were perfectly balanced with the more high speed action segments. I did loose track of some of the character names... but I will be honest I was doing multiple things at the same time as listening to the book. I really can’t get enough now of these books, so I will have to save in my piggy bank for book one and the others to come!!! Hope you keep this level of awesomeness for a story line!!!
It took me sometime to realize that the story is happening in a cyber context, so the fact that the main characters are going about through their own lives while playing the game of the Beast realms would feel odd. But I believe this would be the same thing for any person living 2 lives, one in the real world and the other in a virtual one. Again I think I need to get the first book to have a better context as to everything that happens in Evolution. As such I’m thankful for such a rich story!!!! Never give up!!!!

Beyond Amazing

This book was beyond amazing I really enjoyed Art and Knox’s journey. It made me think back of when they first met, they were kind of like oil and water, but they learn to work together I love the part with arts companion with his healing or salve. I look forward to reading the next book when it comes out.

Good continuation from book 1 but...

Compared to book 1, this one came off as the main characters were playing a co-op game. The story was intriguing with quite a few twists but my biggest issue is where are the other players? Book 1 had an excellent combination of npc and pc interaction but it feels like book 2 forgot other players and their actions also exist.

I would rate this a 4.5 overall but audible doesn't let me so I round it up. It wouldn't be a relisten but I will continue with the series when next book comes out

Well written

The story line is easy to follow, well written with twists at the right points. Some of the storyline is predictable but others go opposite of what you expect. Not very much of a story outside of the game on this book. overall a good read.

Great sequel

I received a free copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
I am enjoying this series. This book was quite interesting, although not as good as the first. I do look forward to additional books.

Bland story, bland characters

Our main character, Art, doesn't come across as very bright, which you can tell just by listening to the dialog. But he also makes several poor decisions, which the listener knows will lead to trouble in the end. These aren't part of Art's makeup, rather these are tools the author uses to move the story in the direction he wants, which makes it lazy writing. If you want to build an admirable character, then you need to figure out a way to get him into trouble without making it his own fault.

Then there's Art's character build, which is just a mess of wildly unrelated skills, none of which are particularly powerful. Art makes a virtue of this mess by trying to keep all of his character traits balanced, meaning that he's not very good at anything. There's just nothing about his character that stands out, making it a boring one.

I've got about 4 hours left in the audiobook, but I keep looking at the timer hoping it's about over. I might just quit.

nothing like the previous book!!!

I enjoyed the first book this one I hated. the writer couldn't figure out whether he wanted this to be a game world or not. they would fight creatures they were way stronger than them sometimes when but never level up from killing things way stronger than him other times they would just be walking in the woods and out of the blue you have leveled up their levels were just random and they did nothing for them and they were fired in between almost never happening. on top of that they spent the entire book being weaklings there was nothing special about these characters at all throughout this entire book and the main character spent the entire book giving away any item that would make him stronger like WTF who wants to read a book about a character in a game world about getting stronger not getting stronger

Storytelling at its best

I loved book 1. This one was even better! Evolution of characters, skills, and the world.

Loads of great new species, classes and beasts in this story. There were unexpected twists and turns, plus great character building (I even liked the out-of-game bits). The world of Beast Realms expanded so much, it felt real and like a game I'd love to play.

Art's new abilities are so cool and he uses them in really clever ways, and Nails' evolutions are so much fun without becoming too OP. The story was really well paced, it never let up and was hard to stop listening. Also Nux is brilliant, if you like a well written female character who kicks ass (with a massive spider) then this is for you too.

The narrator, Travis, did a great job again. His voices helped bring the story to life, and WOW he can sing!

I can't wait for book 3.
