Summary

The highly anticipated conclusion to Volume I.

Parker Stevens is not who he thought he was. He's Cassien Alaris, Prince of the Dark Court. He's stronger, faster...darker. And he embraces it. Even if accepting who he is means losing the one he loves. The Darkness is more tempting.

Luna Ainsworth has a responsibility to save her people. Her life was never her own. She knows who she is and what she must do. Her role comes with certain sacrifices. As Queen of the Elite Light Tylwyth Teg, she must defeat Darkness, even if it means losing a part of her.

In a realm of magic, prophecies, and generations of bad blood, maybe love is the only way to end the battle between Dark and Light. Or is love just in the way?

OMG WOW I don't want this series to stop!

Obviously this is part 2 so you need to listen to part 1 first for this to make any sense! I am not a big fantasy or paranormal fan but this series had me from the first 15 mins! The romance is wonderful even if in this part of the story there was considerably less of it as this part was more about the journey and the discoveries. The characters that Yolanda manages to write are incredible, it's like I can see them in my mind whilst listening and they come to life in a film. Yolanda has a way of writing that draws you in and keeps you hooked, this was fast and exciting and thrilling and heartbreaking, she writes a story world that you can actually feel apart of. The narration was particularly good in this part as we had different POVs throughout. I need the next one in this series quickly please, I really need Cassien to come back from the darkness!!!

What a twist for the ending!!

What a crazy twist at the end! I hope there will be more to this series since the ending definitely leaves you wanting more!

As with the first book I'm not a huge fan of the narration style. I got used to it and I don't feel that it really interferes with the story.

Mind Blown

Cass has fully embraced darkness devastating everybody around him. It seems a lot of people are changing from dark to light or vice versa. Everybody is struggling to find a way to stand together and prepare for war. Cass is too angry to even try to cooperate. His mate chose another over him and because of it he embraces darkness more and more each day. Saying that the contents of this book didn't shock me would be a complete lie. I was taken for multiple rides. I won't get into specifics because I feel I already spoiled too much of this book as it is. I just want to make it a point to say that I couldn't predict anything that happened in this book. Surely this can't be the final book. Surely there are more. This book has me baffled! I can't think of anything I didn't like about the story. The narrators did a terrific job. I am amazed that they did an even better performance on this book than they did the first one. It does seem like a lot more action and story happen in this book though. I guess my only complaint is that it didn't last long enough for me. I fully recommend this book. I strongly encourage reading the first book though. It would help clarify a lot of references that happen in t his book. Be prepared to hit a lot of twists and turns and be shocked through the journey. I never thought I'd enjoy twists as much as I did with this book! Can't wait to read more!

Ascension Volume One, Part Two

Ascension Volume One, Part Two

After entering the other realm of, both Luna and Parker/Cassien have come into their own powers. Now Luna is the Queen of the light court and Cass is a prince of the dark court. Luna cannot understand why Parker has turned so completely to the dark, but her new husband is hiding the secret behind the transformation. Meanwhile, Carter/Cadris and Anya, Luna's sister, are going through much the same situation as Luna and Cass did when they met. Will either couple be able to bridge the gap between the courts, or will Gio be the winner of the war after all?

If you're looking for a dark fantasy where secrets breed more secrets and neither side seem able to to admit to the truth, this is the book for you. Beware, though, for the ending may not be an ending.

Fantastic continuation

the story continues at a faster pace, gripping you in the deceitful dalliances and battle between light and dark.
Narration as fantastic as book 1 and the Story just gets better and better, written beautifully by Yolander Hatcher. But oh what and ending!!! Seriously i was actually holding my breath throughout this book! And I ended it with a big O stuck my stupid face!
Is it? Isn’t it?

Captivating Series!

I love this second book in the Series so much. This is a complex and captivating story, filled with twists and turns. Parker and Luna's are such great characters! The secondary characters are also very interesting. I would love to have a map or a chart to keep track of all the characters and their court in the Realm. Now I can't wait for the next book in the Series! The narration is absolutely wonderful! I totally recommend this Series.

Riveting

The author does a fabulous job in this second part of Ascension. It has a bunch of twists and I just can't even believe that cliffhanger! I love that Cassien and Luna are soul mates but at the same time hate each other. I think this book is a smidge less exciting than part 1 only because it's setting up for the next one. HOWEVER, it is such a riveting story that I just couldn't stop listening. The author's ability to create an entirely unique world with such dynamic characters is entirely masterful. I can't wait to see where this author takes this series and her writing career.

The narrators did a great job in part 1, but there wasn't enough differentiation to tell that there were four separate narrators. In part 2, they have done a way better job and I could actually tell that there were four of them! They were all clear and easy to understand and their pronunciation was great.

Overall, I look forward to seeing where this author takes this bombshell of a series and I am excited for more of her writing.

I love this series!!

I’m on a roller coaster ride and I don’t want to get off. This series has me screaming for more. I must say... “I did not see that coming” and that’s all I’m going to say!
I can’t wait to read/listen to the next book in this series. I recommend to anyone who is up for the intense & unexpected in this brilliant paranormal series. The narration was amazing!

Exciting

This 2nd book was just as intense and good as the first one. The plot twist has me wondering if the author is mad or a genius. Looking forward to the next book

Freaking awesome!

I could not wait for book two to come out! I will agree with Mandy Sawyer and say this series is so intense you guys! My mouth is open.. completely wrecked... I need book 3 right now! I don’t know if I can handle the wait! I am not usually into fantasy or paranormal but I am hooked! I feel like I am a part of their world when I am listening and its super cool!
The narrations is perfect! I love how there are many POV’s from several characters, it makes everything come together and just awesome.
