Blog 185: Ascend

Synopsis for the book from Goodreads
Wendy Everly is facing an impossible choice. The only way to save the Trylle from their deadliest enemy is by sacrificing herself.  If she doesn't surrender to the Vittra, her people will be thrust into a brutal war against an unbeatable foe.  But how can Wendy leave all her friends behind... even if it’s the only way to save them?

The stakes have never been higher, because her kingdom isn't the only thing she stands to lose. After falling for both Finn and Loki, she’s about to make the ultimate choice... who to love forever. One guy has finally proven to be the love of her life—and now all their lives might be coming to an end. 

Everything has been leading to this moment.  The future of her entire world rests in her hands—if she’s ready to fight for it.

My Review:
Cover: Again, with the cover. I absolutely love it. It goes so well with the first two books in the series. I really enjoyed the girl on the cover in different outfits and with different background images.

Things that I liked: I loved the ending to this series. Don't worry I won't spoil it, but I must say that I didn't expect that ending at all. I mean I figured someone was going to get tortured or captured or that there would be a war of sorts but wow. I really enjoyed reading about Wendy and her obstacles of learning her true life and everything that was put on the line. I loved reading how she made her way to being Queen, and what she had to do in order to achieve it. I just really didn't expect the ending. 

Things that I didn't like: I have no complaints about it.

Overall: I really enjoyed this book and the series. I recommend to anyone and everyone looking for a coming of age to the throne type of story with a little bit of fantasy elements throughout the books. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
