Ascension is for the most part, a rescue mission, as Tara learns to hone her power while they plan a daring rescue from the city of Skytown, where the Prezedant and the rich spoiled elite live off the backs of the unwashed masses of the rest of humanity. The odds of success are small, but go in they must, and Tara will discover not only the secret of her origins but a burgeoning spark of romance with the brooding, hunky Jax.
There was more than enough action and humor for me to rate this story five stars. I enjoyed it only slightly less than Awaken, but my appetite is suitably whetted for Part 3 of the trilogy! Bring it on, Ms. Bryan!
Not only is it a great follow up with so much tension and action, but add in the perfect balance of romance, and I was sucked right into the storyline. I really didn't want to stop reading, and if it wasn't for the fact I had to go to work, I wouldn't have.
Ascensions is another well-written book by Ms. Bryan. I'm definitely a fan for life and I’m very much looking forward to the next book!
A shining city promises death. Tara must go there anyway.
In this thrilling sequel to Awaken, Tara must choose between the impossible. She knows she isn’t the person everyone wants her to be; wants nothing to do with the rebellion and strange powers that are as likely to kill her friends as her enemies. But the Prezedant has Ben, her only remaining kin. She made a promise to save him. A promise she can only keep if she tries anyway.
When they finally reach the seat of the Prezedant’s power, a masquerade ball becomes the perfect stage to set in motion a plan to save Ben. It will begin and end there in a battle against the tyrant and a daring escape that will shake the world.
It will shake Tara, too, as she learns truths that change everything she had believed about herself.
OMG I absolutely love this series. Tara is still my favourite character.
As I read this it felt like I was there with them. Can't wait for next part. This is a must read and I would highly recommend this book. 5*. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book from netgalley.
This second installment starts off interesting enough with Tara learning how to continue being an asset to the rebellion against the Prezedant. I liked the first book, and this one was just as fast-paced and action-packed. I also liked that there was a little more romance and that she was aware there was anything going on where a certain guy was concerned. Tara definitely came off more as a coming-of-age MC with the things she was tasked to do, the feelings that came with it and the decisions that she had and wanted, in the end, to be hers. And hers alone.
She's a total hard-head that doesn't let anyone tell her different. At times it was annoying but then I remember that she's so young and inexperienced with life that after a while, it slowly turned into something endearing when you thought of her as a person learning and growing. The action was nice, and the suspense was pretty up there because I kept wondering when the other shoe was going to drop. Overall, a pretty entertaining read I'd recommend to young readers that enjoy the slightly darker themes of Dystopian novels.
I got to be reminded all over that it’s not just her writing style I love but her characters as well who she writes to the point you have to remember these aren’t real people. And her dialogue! It’s quirky, fun and most importantly realistic. It’s what makes her characters feel like friends you’re joining on their thrill ride to something better. She writes these beautifully complex characters that evolve to show different sides of their personalities as they have to adapt to the changes in their lives.
I can’t wait for the third one because she’s proven to have the talent needed to write a good series that draws you in and keeps you coming back for more
