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.

tb-amazonCyrene Strohm is a Queen’s Affiliate, a high-ranking official of the court of Byern, with power and privilege to spare. But she’s also a keeper of dangerous secrets: like the fact that she holds the heart of the King, and that she possesses magic in a world where magic no longer exists.

Determined to discover what this means and how to use her newfound abilities, Cyrene sets off for the distant land of Eleysia. An island nation where Affiliates are strictly forbidden from entering.

But the journey is perilous, and the destination may mean utter ruin, as Cyrene comes to learn that everything she’s been told her whole life – about her court, her homeland, and even herself—are bound in a beautiful lie.
