Review: The Society (Ascension #4) by K.A Linde

Today, I get the immense pleasure to bring to you the fourth installment of K.A Linde’s Ascension series.  The Society picks up exactly where The Consort left off.  Cyrene and her gang are desperate to find a way to save their world.  What they don’t realize is they will go to places they never knew existed.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.

The fourth book in the fantasy Ascension series that NYT bestselling author Susan Dennard called “perfect for fans of Sarah J Maas.”

War is on the horizon.

All while a new power grows strong, threatening the very balance of good and evil.

Desperate to save her homeland, Cyrene goes in search of the dragons that may be the key to ending this battle—and heal her dying friend.

Can Cyrene master her magic to save the world?

Review:

Cyrene finds herself desperate to find help for her bound-sister, Avoca.  While their travels send them in search of mystics and healers she must also learn to control the power within her.  As she is desperate to find answers, Kael has fully taken control of Byern and yearns for even more power.  The network of spies that lie beneath Byern are growing stronger and yearn for a leader to help them take their world from the dark force that is taking it over.  Cyrene knows to win this war she must travel to find the lost dragons.  Will Cyrene be able to do all that is needed and save her friends and the world before the growing power destroys all she holds dear?

OMG!  I can’t even with this book.  I didn’t think this world could get any better than it already was but this book blew my expectations out of the water.  Cyrene’s journey is so enthralling.  Her quest for the dragons, control of her magic and saving Avoca propels this book to a whole new level.  You really sink further into this world and get to see all of the characters grow.  Dean and Cyrene really start to grow back together too.  After the previous book and his betrayal I wasn’t sure if they would be able to salvage anything that happened between them, but their relationship has redeveloped and made their characters more dynamic.  Ahlvie and Avoca are another story that has truly come together finally.  What I truly loved about this book is when the characters that contain the light are present you can almost feel the light radiating off of the page.  In the same token, when the characters that contain the dark are present you feel them drag you into that feeling.  It truly was a fantastic book that will definitely leave you going WTF? in some parts and begging for October 2019 to hurry up and get here.  This book is part 4 in a series that is ongoing.  You will need to read it in order.

Review: The Consort (Ascension #3) by K.A Linde

Today, I get to bring to you the third book in the fantastic Ascension series.  This book takes us further into the world that Cyrene is becoming a bigger part in and Kael is choosing darker paths.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.

28577883Book Blurb:

After the loss of a friend and a false imprisonment in an Eleysian dungeon, Cyrene has no interest in destiny. Her heart was shattered, friends scattered, and her home is nothing but a pretty illusion. Even her magic won’t cooperate.

Only desperation can turn her to the last person she should trust:

Prince Kael.
His darkness mirrors a growing force lurking within her. A struggle she never imagined threatens to consume her. And as friends and foes begin to show their true colors, she starts questioning whether anyone is who they seem.

Even herself.

Review:

Cyrene finds herself emprisioned and betrayed by the man she has fallen for.  Her heart broken she feels aimless.  When Kael comes to retrieve her she does the only thing she thinks she can and moves toward Kael’s pull.  The closer she gets the more she realizes and sees where the dangers really lie.  Her choices have so much weight now.  Will she be able to make the choices that will propel her toward her destiny or will she doom everyone?

This was a terrific addition to this series.  Carrying Cyrene’s story to the next level really adds so much more emotional depth to her character.  Her pain, love, confusion and torment are all felt through the words of the phenomenal K.A Linde.  The world that she has built with this story truly brings it to striking color.  The emotion and choices all the characters must make really bring a air of realism to a completely fictional world.  In this third installment, we get to see more of our favorite character, Avoca, Ahlvie, Dean, Orden, Vera and Matilde.  This band really help to pave the way for how the story will go.  Without them, this series wouldn’t be as dynamic as it already is.  If you haven’t started this series yet, you need to start.  This is NOT a standalone book.  This is part of an ongoing series that I guarantee you will devour the moment you get your hands on them.
