Ascension, #3
Publish Date:
October 10, 2017

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.

*My Thoughts*
Note: This review contains NO spoilers

We are now into the third installment of the Ascension series. I have found that these characters have developed more and more with each installment. Hence, I continue to be "wowed" with K. A. Linde's ability to create this magical world with intriguing characters in an equally engrossing story. Moreover, The Consort has taken a more darker undertones in this storytelling. What I also enjoyed is that with each book, the story starts off where it left off in the previous book.

After two books, I felt that questions were answered, but then, more questions were asked. As for the various story subplots/arcs in this magical world, the connections were made in which it enhanced the flow and add to the whole.

The Consort has definitely left me breathless and in shock from all the twists and turns that K.A. Linde created in this series! I think my "jaw dropped" every time I finished each book! However, what irks me a bit is that... There is A LOT going on which doesn't bother me so much as long as the flow is cohesive and the connections come together clearly. But, yes, there is A LOT going on; however, do not let that deter you from reading this series. K.A. Linde's Ascension series is a VERY involved reading in which readers can get lost in this world she created. So... All in all, I continue to be blown away with amount of intricate storytelling in this fantasy series.

My rating:
