Other than that though, I'm intrigued by the world and will look to venture further into Uutta Toivoa in hopes of getting some answers as the world seems well thought out and more original than not, based on what's revealed.
I'd still recommend this to any lover of dragon lore because J.C. Harker has some new twists on the genre.
As for Ascension, we got few if any detail on how it works in Harker's previous story in the Dragon Reborn series. And Tharia doesn't decide to pursue it until the second section of the story.
There's a fair amount that happens in the first two sections. The first was good for showing what Tharia's normal life is like and setting the new scene (we're no longer on Utta Toivaa). This is full of the vivid descriptions and well-placed details we've seen in Harker's work before. I enjoyed the second section more. At this point Tharia is on the run from mercenaries. Of course they find her, and it leads to a tense fight scene.
The action reaches its height in the third section when Tharia tries to Ascend. This battle between two Draphony is one of the best I've ever read by Harker.
Clever concepts and vivid descriptions are what separate Harker as a good writer. And having one central character makes this installment better than the last, in my opinion. This is another of her stories I can easily recommend to others.
Giving credit where credit is due, it was nicely written and kept my interest. However, I am not a fan of short books, so I will probably not continue with the series. If short books are something that you like, go ahead and give this one a try. Although incomplete, at least it didn't end with a cliffhanger.

There are few authors that can create a complete fantasy world that is totally believable. J C Harker is doing just that. The main character Tharia has such depth, I was with her throughout the journey right to the amazing climax. Loved this book and would highly recommend it.
