Ascension Book 3

By K.A. Linde

Genre: YA Fantasy






After the loss of a friend and 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.

When all seems lost, she turns to the one person she never thought that she would 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.

What a whirlwind instalment, The Consort was . After the thrilling conclusion in  The Bound, I couldn’t wait to read this instalment. I don’t know how it could get anymore epic. Linde has truly found her  feet in this genre and she knows how to deliver a book that readers will not only enjoy but will  easily get addictive to . I know I am and  I can’t wait for the next book. As too much has happened to let it sit and rest for now. I need to know what happens next

As I don’t know what to expect after this book as the bombshells and twists kept coming one after another.  They were flying left, right and centre with out any case for concern and only added to this rich story. This one of the things I loved about this series, as  Linde writes very descriptively and has a great imagination

With bated breath I  was  left  wondering  what happened  to Cyrene at the end of  The Bound and she didn’t disappoint. As there was a few possibilities given what had happened so fa.r   With  a few story arcs running through the series ,  Linde managed to  give readers a little bit of everything from each arc with out overwhelming readers.  Travelling more of this great world she has created and allowing readers to see Cyrene in her element as she struggles to deal with the great responsibility  laid on her

It isn’t easy being Cyrene but  Linde has a great grasp on her  and knows what exactly she needs.   She never skips a beat when it comes to her and  I loved seeing certain interacts with beloved and hated characters. It showed how much she has grown since the beginning and how  my feelings had changed  about certain things.   Cyrene most of the time seems to be  one step ahead and I have grown to trust her judgement as this instalment showed how intelligent she when it came to politics and more . Even though it cost her at times and made for an entertaining read  as the power struggles  took centre stage and   lines were drawn.

Fans will be please with this instalment as Linde manages to entwine  the story arcs all together some how magically  and you won’t miss anyone.  With such a large and varied cast , everyone gets their moment and drop a bombshell or two.   Allowing us to go back to the beginning and see everyone we come to love and hate interact.

Questions will be answered but of course there will be new ones arising to replace those.  Step back in to this magical world again and  you won’t be disappointed by the third epic instalment in the  Ascension series.

Cyrene 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.
