There’s something in the water.

WHEN A SECRET BRANCH of the Department of Homeland Security offers former Marine and archaeologist Lexa Rogers a contract gig for the weekend, she jumps at the opportunity.

They want her to help investigate a 100,000-year old self-repairing tooth fossil, which, as it turns out, is part of a military research project for near-perfect camouflage.

But not all is what it seems, which is why Lexa was sent there not only to help the research, but also to ensure the data for the project was preserved.

At all costs.

As the team of scientists work, they quickly discover that they were lied to about why they were there. Then, they lose contact with half of the crew, and find out that something in the water is hunting them.

If Lexa is going to survive, she will have to abandon her academic mind and go back to her military roots, and ultimately arrive at the crossroads between morality and primal instinct.

When you’re reduced to primal instincts, how far will you go to survive?

ABOUT THE SERIES

EVOLVED kicks off the Special Projects and Intelligence Division Emergency Response (SPIDER) series. Think Torchwood and Fringe all wrapped up in one.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING

If you enjoy edge of your seat suspense then this is definitely the book for you.” —Mindyg123

“I have always found books that didn’t show you the monster more scary than the ones that did. This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time; not only can you not see what is out to get you the fact that it takes place Miles under water makes it a million times more chilling. I loved this book and could not put it down… I think you will find that some of the best characters aren’t even human. If you like Meg or the Abyss you will enjoy this book.” —Tricia Schiro

“… EVOLVED is beyond good: it is exceptional. I tend to be a fan of cephalopods as a Lovecraftian (though 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea certainly scared me as a child), and I got to learn a lot about the species while reading EVOLVED. From the terrifying reader’s hook right through, the novel rings a lot of my “must-have” bells and gave me a lot of characters from whom to choose where to place my empathy. Plus, I loved the science. All win all the way–can’t wait for the next in series.”—Mallory Haws
