Decimated by nuclear war, humanity stands at the precipice of extinction. The rich and powerful take to the oceans and skies on floating utopias, escaping destruction and forcing everyone else to fend off mutated creatures that roam the world.

At the turn of the third millennium, earth’s remaining survivors glimpse hope when a brilliant scientist invents nanotechnology, and mankind finally has a chance to push back against the walls of their radioactive prisons.

No longer enslaved within the safe zone, Jared embraces the new technology. He plunges deep into the twisted, scarred wastelands and unwittingly binds himself to a being of great power. But a discovery breeds doubt and fear; the nanomachines surging inside his body are killing him

Faced with this new reality, Jared must become an apex predator to survive. He must surpass human limitations to defeat those in power and bring justice to any deserving.



Thankyou to Richard Hummel and Book Publicity Services for providing me with a copy of Radioactive Evolution, in exchange for an honest review.

Radioactive Evolution is an epic urban fantasy book, situated within the LitRPG genre. There are dragons, mutated creatures, a post apocalyptic wasteland of a world and enough action to have you blazing through the pages.

Having survived the nuclear war, Jared has been fending for himself, just trying to survive.  After a chance encounter, he meets Scarlet, a dragon hatchling, who bonds herself to him and starts to teach him how to enhance his abilities for better survival.  As the pair journey through the crumbling lands, on a mission they need to complete, they start to realise not everything they’ve been told is true can be trusted.

I really enjoyed the relationship and banter between Scarlet and Jared and the idea of ‘levelling up’ their abilities was a lot of fun.  As this book will be part of a series, it ended in a way that left me a bit desperate to discover what was going to happen next!  I’m looking forward to reading the sequel.

If you’re a fan of adventure quests, video games, sci-fi and fantasy books, I’d suggest giving this one a try!
