Masterfully crafted by KT Webb, ‘The Evolved’ provides a totally new perspective on mythology and religion; spinning together an intricate tale of timeless legends cocooned by the romance and action of a new civilization. Hailed “compelling” and a “page turner” by critics, Webb defies literary boundaries and compels readers to change how they perceive the past.
Watertown, SD -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/11/2015 -- While fantasy has long been a staple of the literary landscape, both readers and critics are currently crying out for wholly-unique new narratives that don't succumb to recycling of the same-old concepts. Thankfully, KT Webb has stepped up to the plate with gusto, throwing the rule book out of the window with a thought provoking and intricate novel that fuses modern struggles with age-old legend.
'The Evolved' presents an exciting adventure, as a chosen few are tasked to move mankind into the next stage of its existence amidst a battle with a pair of frighteningly-powerful foes. As they rapidly discover, the future could truly lay in the past.
The prophecy reads:
"Five will remain. The orphan, the divided, the heart, and the brave. They will be the final hope of mankind, and through them, all life will evolve."
The world has changed since the Old Immortals first arrived. Centuries have passed, civilizations have come and gone. As time wore on, they realized their power was dwindling, and they were fading away. Each new generation grew stronger, until only a few Old Immortals remained.
The Evolved have been called together to usher in the new era. They are the five remaining descendants of the Old Immortals. They come from different walks of life, but find themselves united under a shared purpose; to help mankind move into the next phase.
"My goal was to take a totally different approach to religion and mythology, unleashing them from their boundaries so readers can explore them through an adventure that transcends time," explains the author. "It's a fusion of old-world legend with modern adventure; something rarely seen in the fantasy genre."
Continuing, "The audience spans far and wide, right from theologians and history buffs to young adults that just love straight fiction. There's so many genres involved that it quite literally appeals to anyone!"
Since its release, the book has garnered rave reviews. Chasity F. comments, "I TOTALLY LOVE IT. Read half of it in just 3 hrs and the only reason I stopped reading it at the moment is because I had to go to work."
Lisa Manship adds, "This is a very compelling story and kept me wanting more. It is a great book and I look forward to more books in the series!"
The response has been so positive that Webb has recently announced the volume's inclusion in her 'New Era Saga'. Watch for book two, Growing Hope, due for release later this year.
