The Evolutionite Chronicles Book 2: Dagger and Shadow Ninja in: Welcome to Las Vegas is a fast-paced action novel written by Timothy P. Callahan. Tanaka and Daniel, two superheroes who also happen to be brothers, are the main characters in the book. Daniel, who is the elder brother, is also known as "Shadow Ninja," while Tanaka, the younger brother, is known as "Dagger." In the book's opening chapter, Tanaka receives a frantic call from his ex, who he hasn't heard from in over ten years, Nancy Waddel, requesting his appearance in Las Vegas. Nancy doesn't give away enough details in her call, only that she suspects she is in grave danger.

Tanaka, still harbouring unresolved feelings for his ex, drops everything to go and help her. Daniel decides to travel to Las Vegas with Tanaka because he has no choice but to stick with his brother. When they arrive, they meet Nancy, who seems to be physically fine but acts paranoid. Further conversation with Nancy reveals that she thinks her ex-husband, David Lee, is after her. Shortly after their arrival, both brothers are attacked separately by EVOs (people with supernatural abilities). Can the brothers figure out who is behind the attacks while keeping Nancy safe?

Timothy did an exceptional job of writing the scenes in this book, especially the action scenes. I liked that while reading the book, I could easily picture the events taking place.

I really liked that the book was packed with action and suspense. The number of twists in the book was quite surprising and fuelled my desire to continue reading. I also liked that the book contained a good bit of humour, which helped to lighten the effect of tense situations in the book.

The book's conclusion was one aspect I didn't like. I had anticipated a much more dramatic climax given the amount of tension that had built up until the last few pages. The book's ending also seemed inconclusive as one of the villains wasn't apprehended.

I also didn't like that different scenes in the same chapter weren't clearly separated, and this sometimes confused me while reading the book. A blank line served as the only means of separation between two distinct scenes. I believe there ought to have been a header stating that the narration was switching to a different scene.

I only found one error while reading, so I believe the book was professionally edited. I'll give this book a rating of three out of four stars. The ending, which I found unsatisfactory, is the reason I deducted a star.

I'll recommend this book to readers who like action novels and books with a superhero theme. This book is also recommended for readers looking for a casual, quick read. This book would have been perfect for teens if not for the inclusion of sexual content and the frequent use of profane language.

I love action packed novels filled with suspense. This made this book appealing to me. I wish the brothers found the killer's without jeopardising Nancy's safety.
You are yet to be the best version of yourself. Keep refining.

This book seems to captivate my attention from the summary. You gave a good account if it and I wish the siblings could keep Nancy safe while they investigate the perpetrators.
