This was a very good debut novel by Jen L. Grey! The prologue starts off nicely by giving background on the Pearson Prophecy that so much affects the events of Dawning Ascent. Unlike the rest of the novel, you get viewpoints from a few players. The rest is told in first person from Ariah’s POV as she becomes accustomed to not only being the Savior’s sister, but also realizing her powers and feelings. More or less, it is a coming-of-age story set in a fantasy world where women are elemental magic wielders. It is also full of interesting side characters—my favorites being her say-it-like-it-is best friend, Claire, and the charming foreign prince, Sam. There also seems to be some underlying political intrigue/plots brewing that I look forward to seeing more of in Book 2.
I have to admit that I did, however, need to get used to reading first person POV in present tense. I am more used to first person still being in narrative past tense. But after awhile, I got used to it. There is also a love triangle, which can be overdone, and while the men involved can be a bit dramatic at times, I think Grey pulls it off well in a way that flows with the characters’ personalities.
I believe those who enjoyed Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen series will especially like this novel. I can’t wait for book 2 to see what further adventures await Ariah!
Her "death" at the end was surprising and unexpected. It makes you wonder what will happen next. What will the King do when he realizes his mistakes. And of course, will she end up with Sam?! I must know.
I also want to see if Gabe realizes he's being a complete toolshed and comes to see the error in his ways and goes back to his wife who still loves him and hopes everyday for his homecoming.
Bring on book 2 Jen!!! I can't wait to read more!
Her characters are bold and unique and you can feel them bringing it altogether to create this incredible experience,where your imagination opens up to see how they live and the beauty and cruelness of the world they live in.
This story continues to fall hand in hand as it unfolds,the flow and the style of the book is fun and exciting. You can feel the story building and you know it's building itself into something great, it's like you can feel the tides are on the edge of turning and yet you have no idea how it will work out or the effect and impact it will have.
I found this story wasn't boring! It was not repetitive or a cliche!
I found it was fresh Exciting and Bold!
I want more of this story I want to see how this incredible story we are seeing built turns out.

if your looking for a longer read this is one to read!
Starting off with the prophecy of the saviour being born, the last of 3 children.
Now grown up Ariah and Logan hid in the shadow of their younger sister the saviour or so she is believed.
Young love comes alive for Ariah her childhood friend who also is the prince.
What will Ariah do when her Prince is meant to marry your sister and there is another Prince showing interest. Going from hiding under the radar to being the beacon drawing all sorts of unwanted attention.
To top things off her powers are going crazy growing stronger each time she uses her powers! this is a must read!!
