Being an avid fan of Felicity Heaton's Vampire books, and having read all of her VR and VET books I thought I would give Ascension a try, I couldn't put it down - I downloaded it on the Thursday night and finished it on Saturday the only reason it took so long was because of a pesky thing called work that I had to do in between my sessions of sinking my teeth into the gorgeous leading male, Taig! who knew a half man, half demon could be so hot! And as for the leading lady Lealandra, well, she's smart, strong, funny and powerful - the tension and the history between these two characters is, as always, well written by Felicity you feel like you know the characters and with every scene she sets you feel like you are there watching, during the battles (of which there are a quite a few) you literally feel like you are there dodging spells and killing bad guys with them. This book has it all, tension, romance, action, mega hotness, a deep story line, fabulous scene setting and of course characters that you will love.
Taig is half man, half demon, Lealandra is a very powerful witch - six years ago they spent 6 months together but Lealandra left to be paired with a counter-balance witch after being placed with him by her coven - now with her ascension looming and her counter-balance dead, coupled with some betrayal and all that other gripping stuff us readers love, there is only one person she can turn to for help, Taig but after her leaving him 6 years ago will he help her, will he be able to make peace with his own demons to enable himself to let her in and protect her.... you'll have to read the book to find out!!
I would urge any fan of Felicity's who hasn't read this to get involved, you will love Taig and Lea and the book ends answering lots of questions whilst leaving you with many more to be answered in the next two instalments!! (The only problem I have now is what am I going to read whilst I wait for book 2!).
And to anyone who hasn't read any of Felicity's books - read Ascension now - you will not be disappointed!
A witch on the verge of achieving phenomenal power, Lealandra must turn to her half-breed demon ex-lover Taig for protection from the dark force that is after her and also from her own magic. With her Counter-Balance dead and her coven against her, Taig's blood and power is the only thing that can help her control her magic and survive the ascension and gain the strength to defeat her enemy.
