Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Experience the danger and desire of a secret race of vampire warriors—and the powerful women they are sworn to protect…

IN THE HEAT OF BATTLE

By night, the winged warrior Antony Medichi fights the death vampires who threaten his world. By day, he hunts the rogue vampires who invade Mortal Earth. But deep in his heart rages the fiercest battle of all—his soul-searing passion for the one mortal he is sworn to protect…the one woman he is doomed to love.

ON THE WINGS OF FIRE

Parisa Lovejoy is so beautiful, and so powerful, that Antony cannot fight the feelings she arouses. But his unexpected love only intensifies his strength as her Guardian—a strength that is put to the ultimate test when Parisa is abducted. Her captor, Commander Greaves, enslaves mortal women for their blood. If Parisa hopes to survive—and ascend—she must forge an even deeper bond with Antony…in the flames of eternity.

 

“Sexy, cool, edgy romantic fantasy…Prepare to be enthralled.”

—Lara Adrian on Ascension

About the Author

Caris Roane has authored over fifty published Regency romance novels and novellas under the name Valerie King.  In 2005, the Romantic Times honored her with a Career Achievement award for her Regency work. Ascension is her first paranormal romance.


More About the Author

I confess I've had a love affaire with vampires for several years now, especially warrior vampires, the kind found in the books of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian and JR Ward. Though I've been published in Regency Romance under the pseudonym Valerie King--and yes one of my Regency Novellas features a vampire--one day I woke up knowing I had to create my own contemporary world of the warrior vampire.

For some mystical, magical reason, early in the process, my vampires appeared with enormous beautiful wings and it has been the most amazing experience to include flight in my novels, in both battle scenes and scenes involving spectacle. My special vampire world, published by St. Martin's Press, is introduced in the first book called, ASCENSION (12-28-2010). The second book, BURNING SKIES (May of 2011), opens up the world a little bit more. And even as I write this, I'm on the final draft of my third novel, WINGS OF FIRE (September of 2011). What a thrill it has been to live with my ascended vampires through the creation of this extraordinary, multi-dimensional world!

For more information about my unique take on the vampire mythos, check out my website at carisroane.com and my book release video on YouTube by putting in the search phrase, Caris Roane Ascension.

With every hope you'll enjoy reading my books set in the World of Ascension, All my best, Caris Roane

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have tried reading the books in this series but I am going to have to admit to myself, it is a wasted effort. The concept is pretty good, the characters are somewhat developed, but the author just cannot write very well. The story is all over the place with two people that are too damaged to star in a romance. They do not so much fall in love as give in to a higher power. I don't see them as a great couple and the couples from the previous books are very much present and I don't see them making it either. The heroine almost fell into the dreaded TSTL (too stupid to live) category and took the man with her. I was hoping for more from this book and the series in general but the story drags on to a pitiful ending that is just another set-up for the next book which promises to star ANOTHER damaged couple forced into a relationship that as painful for them as it is for us the reader. Sorry.

Guardians of Ascension: The war continues with the eccentric Madame Endelle's Warriors of the Blood and the corrupted evil Commander Greaves. Imagine if you will: Eight very large warriors in leather kilts. Now add beautiful wings. They are not angels, but vampires, whose mission is to keep the soulless death vampires from entering mortal earth. Place those warriors in multi-dimensional worlds, the higher the dimension, the stronger the powers. This particular series takes place on Mortal Earth and Second Earth with occasional glimpses of the upper dimensional worlds coming into play at crucial times. The breh-hedden is a legendary phenomenon that emits pheromones that bind a male to female as mates, albeit against their will, and is only recognized by the other through the sense of smell of a particular individual scent.

So for all you J. R. Ward and Lara Adrian fans.... Dig in.. you are in for a great ride!

"Wings of Fire" is the third chapter in the series, Guardians of Ascension.

Parisa Lovejoy was introduced in the previous novel, Burning Skies, as a rare mortal not yet ascended with wings and voyeur capabilities. She was abducted by Rith, a powerfully deranged loyal servant to Commander Reaves while under the watch of her guardian and breh, Antony Medichi.
This story begins with Parisa missing for three months now and Antony searching tirelessly day and night for clues to where she may be. He knows she is still alive because she, as a voyeur, has visited Antony every morning whispering his name. Trying unsuccessfully to communicate her whereabouts telepathically she feels helpless and alone. When she encounters a mysterious woman begging for help and then voyeurs her, she discovers the horrific truth of what Rith is doing secretly in the basement below.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Three months ago the winged Warrior of the Blood Antony Medichi lost his woman who was abducted. He knows she is special as he is her Guardian of Ascension who failed to protect her. Antony realizes his beloved breh haden soul mate Parisa Lovejoy is an anomaly with her beauty, intelligence and power. He vows to find and rescue her from the malevolent Roth, agent of even more evil Commander Greaves.

Antony also continues to hunt down the invading death vampires and other rogue vampires who harm Earth. Meanwhile death vampire Commander Greaves, who kidnaps female mortals to drink their blood, vampire knows his latest captive Parisa is special due to her voyeur skills. Her only hope for salvation and saving other blood slaves resides with Antony if she accepts her Guardian as her eternal soul mate.

The latest Guardians of Ascension vampire romantic thriller (see The Burning Skies and Ascension) is a terrific tale as Caris Roane provides more insight into the divided vampire culture though the actions and reactions of the cast. The three prime characters make a delightful paranormal triangle as the death vampire plans to drink the blood of the Ascension whose soul mate is coming in an enjoyable urban fantasy.

I love this series! It keeps me enthralled throughout the entire series. Lots of mystery, suspense, drama, love and romance, intrigue the entire series keeps you on the edge of your seat. My only complaint is there is a lot of repeating in each book of past situations. Otherwise it's a nail bitter.

I bought this book for participation in my local Paranormal Romance Book Club.

Since my book club has found this series interesting we are continuing on throughout the series and following the Warriors of Blood as they find their breh hedden mates. I am always curious about the differences in each of the love stories. Normally they have a general romance feel to them where there are obstacles in the way of a couple coming together and it is a matter of them getting over those hurdles to be together and live happily ever after. I wanted to see what happened to one of the warriors I liked from the start, Warrior Medichi.

The last book left off where Parisa had been kidnapped right from under her Guardian's nose. This book continues on with that story line by showing Antony struggling to cope with Parisa's absence and his desperation to find her at any cost. He foregoes sleep and other activities he once enjoyed in order to hunt down leads on where he can find the woman who stole his heart. When he finally gets a lead worth following he can't get to Parisa soon enough.

All the while, Parisa is in a luxurious hell. Yes, she is well taken care of (when she obeys) but a gilded cage is still a cage. She looks up at the sky in the gardens she frequents and longs for the courage to spread her wings and fly away. The man keeping her, Rith, is a powerful one and she knows if she even attempts it she will not get far and will surely die because of it. Rith seems to be chomping at the bit to rid his home and his world of her existence. All she can do is practice her flying skills and live for the one moment at night where she can reach Antony through her voyeurism powers.

War is raging and Antony and Parisa are only two people smack in the middle of it.
