Taliesin Ascendant is a thrilling follow up to The Children and the Blood. It's one of those books you want to race through because you have to know what happens next, but you can't race through because the words are so lovely, you don't want to miss anything.

Taliesin Ascendant picks up where The Children and the Blood left off. Ashe continues her quest to find the Merlins in order to fulfill her promise to Carter - telling the Merlins that the Blood do exist. However, finding the Merlins puts Ashe on a path she'd never expected.

Cole and Lily try to keep moving in order to evade the Taliesins and the Bloods. Unfortunately, they happen upon a fringe family of Merlins. They are held against their will and while there, they have revelation upon revelation about each of their families and the history of the war between the Merlins and the Taliesins.

The war between the Merlins and the Taliesins is escalating. But as these two groups fight for dominance and power, they have no idea there is another threat to them both - and it's stronger than they can imagine. Ashe, Cole and Lily all have integral roles in this war, and they aren't sure whom to trust. Seriously, I didn't know who to trust and as Ashe did, I misjudged a few people.

Taliesin Ascendant is equally as pulse-pounding as The Children and the Blood. I felt there was fantastic character development combined with the spine-tingling suspense and action. Oh, all the intrigue! Megan Joel Peterson did a phenomenal job of keeping me in the dark about the direction of the plot. The new players introduced and the further questions which arose really created a pulse-pounding story that I was completely immersed in.

This is such a brilliant story!

I was offered a copy of Taliesin Ascendant by Megan Joel Peterson in exchange for an honest review and as I was such a fan of Children of the Blood I was pleased to be able to say yes.
The pace of this book is just as frantic, as Ashe struggles with Merlin conflict, and Cole and Lily are still on the run from the Taliesin wizards.
The Ashe the reader meets in this sequel is hardened following her experiences battling and losing Carter and she is intent on hunting down the Blood who are trying to gain control in the wizard war. I admire her strength in Taliesin Ascendant, as well as her leadership skills and compassion.
Cole is still taking care of Lily, under the guise of his sister, helping her to control her magic and trying to keep her safe from the Talisein. Their situation is precarious, as the full extent of Lily's power is still unknown and whilst for a time Megan Joel Peterson lulls the reader into a sense of security with their surroundings, unfortunately this is only temporary and as Cole and Lily encounter further danger, unforeseen details about Cole are revealed.
Taliesin Ascendant is a mature young adult novel, with strong fantasy elements; it has a complicated plot, but not so much that Megan Joel Peterson alienates her reader; we are still able to become involved in the lives of the characters and the progression of the story.
I enjoyed the fact that there are details which are completely unexpected, making me wonder which direction the next installment of Children of the Blood will take! I cannot wait!

I couldn't stop reading it.

I was on the edge of my seat, and spent all of yesterday afternoon and a little of this morning reading the last two-thirds.

I am a little cranky though: I don't want to have to wait for the next one. I want to read it now!!!

The thing I did not like about this book is that it took all the way till the end for the sisters to finally meet up and connect. Other than that the book is filled with suspense and drama. But still would be better had the author connected the sisters together and put some sort of love thing between cole and the older sister. All in all its still a good read
