The Evelyn Project will capture the attention of all readers from the beginning and not let it go. With a very intriguing and unique plot and a variety of excellent characters, it is a great read for those with a variety of tastes.
The plot is absolutely exciting and there are not many slow portions at all. I found myself eager to read more nearly the entire time. The idea of black magic is definitely an attention-grabber, as the subject is brought up at the start. Despite this, The Evelyn Project has a very realistic feel that can almost have readers believing in it's possibility.
Not too many novels touch on dangerous cults, but this novel's inclusion of them was a definite success. The mood created from that, along with the magic and Evelyn's story create the kind of dark atmosphere that I just cannot get enough of.
Almost all of the characters in The Evelyn Project are very strong. Whether it be a father who would do just about anything for his daughter, a woman who struggles to avenge her sister in any small way she can, or a single professor thrown into danger, they all have excellent back stories and features.
I especially enjoyed the differences in time. This may just be personal preference, but I love reading about Europe in the 1800's and the chapters set it that time period were awesome. The Evelyn Project is definitely a story to check out.
