“It is November, and I have read dozens of books this year. I hadn’t come across one I’d call my favourite book of the year until I read Radioactive Evolution by Richard Hummel. It is an unusual mix of fantasy, dystopia, coming of age, adventure, and a little bit of (gentle) horror. I didn’t expect to be drawn into this novel after reading the description, but once I started, I was hooked. I just couldn’t put it down.” – Kim Anisi (Reader’s Favorite)
“The story was amazing and it was so well constructed. I loved how the twists and turns took the story to new heights. The dialogues showed so much more about the characters and showed how vital each and every one of them was. I enjoyed the smooth flow of the story. The action was intense, and the emotions were too. I could feel what Jared was feeling. I could feel his fear, his energy and his own desire to fight on. Radioactive Evolution is a wonderful and very entertaining reading experience.” – Rabia Tanveer (Reader’s Favorite)

Jared’s quest takes a new turn when he discovers dragons are real.
From the Author
I had so much fun writing Radioactive Evolution and it seems like that has carried over to those of you reading it. This is my debut novel and the start of, hopefully, a long series that will take you through the world I’ve created and allow you to meet the characters.
I wanted this to be more of a coming of age story where the MC is raised with ideals and beliefs so contrastingly different with how the world actually his. His path to learn and understand the stark realities of a post-apocalyptic world showcase his struggle, bringing a conflict of emotions to the forefront.
Stay tuned for more in this epic dystopian adventure!
