--Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff,New York Times Bestselling Author of The Antiquities Hunter
"Mankind's age-oldfascination with angels and their unearthly power provides the backdrop for AnnelieseKhalil's spellbinding tale of a supernatural calling. Joel Stevens, desperatelymiserable following a horrendous work accident, attempts suicide, only to berescued by an enigmatic vagrant just as he experiences a vision of an angel.From that moment, Joel's insatiable desire to ascend takes over hislife--fueled by the vagrant's tutelage in the stages of ascension, and whoseclaims to be an angel himself masks a nefarious hidden agenda. Joel'slong-suffering wife, Sarah, finds her unconditional love for him stretchedbeyond breaking point as she, too, conceals her own dark secret. Ascension isnot only a supernatural treat that transcends religion, it is a hauntinglyrealistic dissection of love destroyed by madness and obsession, which packsmore of a punch for being well-written and cleverly constructed."
--James H Longmore. Author of Flanagan; Tenebrion;and Pede
"Ascension turns everything you thought you knewabout angels upside down, and then some. Ms. Khalil takes bold steps away fromthe age-old preconceptions of good and evil, and presents an intelligentalternative that is both thought-provoking and, at times, downrightphilosophical. In a story evocative of the gritty, down-to-earth style of TheKill Society and early Stephen King, angels are presented not as holybeings of God, but rather as otherworldly, timeless creatures as prone toweakness, temptation, and ego as their human counterparts, and who are notabove manipulation, coercion, and lying to get their way."
--Chris Hammer, authorof Family Can Be Murder (Dysorganized Crime Series)
"The Devil card intarot commonly depicts a man and a woman chained to the Beast, but the chainsare readily extractable, should the couple choose to remove them. The chasmbetween free will and destiny is blurred. For me, this story brings that cardto mind. Anneliese Khalil's debut novel makes a fantastical premise seemabsolutely plausible exploring the possibilities waiting to be plumbed withinus all, both good and evil. She guides her readers to take a hard look at theconstructs and cruelty of love and suggests we consider that angels are notalways as they seem. Ascension is a dark, provocative, high-voltagethriller that will grab readers by the throat and release them less-than-gentlywhen it concludes. A supernatural horror story and love story in equal parts,this page-turner won't let you put it down until it's ready to."
--Lee Adams, authorof 5th and Vanguard and Nighthawks (Julie Page MysterySeries)
"I totally lovedthis book! Khalil has done a fantastic job of developing the three maincharacters, and the tension between them is electric! The way she imaginesangels as neither good nor bad is wonderfully refreshing, and the tragedy thatbefalls the central couple is both entirely believable and heartbreakinglytragic. I found myself rooting for them, and at the same time absolutely hatingthe cruel, manipulative Donovan who weaves his cruel spell. By the end, thetable is most definitely set for a sequel, and I sincerely hope the author isworking on that right now!"
--Heddy Frosell daPonte,author of The Glamour Years of Flying as a Stewardess and TheFrosell Affair
"Move over DanielleTrussoni! Ascension, a unique love story, is a definite must read forall lovers of the Angelology series. Debut author Anneliese Khalil has writtena marvelous rollercoaster of a story in the vein of Lou Morgan's Blood &Feathers. The book is a divinely constructed journey into a world offlawed human beings and equally flawed angels, who are rendered in a refreshinglynon-religious way. The research and scientific theories that help build theauthor's world have obviously been painstakingly researched, are utterlyconvincing, and presented incredibly well. Ascension threads togetherancient doctrine, modern beliefs, and scientific principles in a way that isintelligent, plausible, and will leave the reader with much food for thought. Atriumphant novel guaranteed to keep you thinking long after the end of thebook!"
--Lori Titus, authorof Hunting in Closed Spaces (Marradith Ryder Series) and BlackMagic Women: Terrifying Tales by Scary Sisters
"Ascensionintrigues from its first sentence to its last.It deftly tells a tale of compelling characters whose desires revealreligious and existential dilemmas pondered by humans for millennia. Khalil tackles these big ideas with levityand grace while never forgetting the first responsibility of a fiction writer--to entertain."
--Rachel Kobin, Founder and Director, The Philadelphia WritersWorkshop
