The author, "Amanda Hocking", wrote a wonderful trilogy. They were well put together everything one could hope to have in a trilogy. The narrator ,"There's Plummer ", did a wonderful job at telling the stories. She made the caritors come to life as she tells the story, A must have book!
If I had the book, page turner! Suspenseful! Amazing and that's not just this book the whole series!!!
If I it was all so amazing. Amanda Hocking is a amazing writer. I absolutely love her books.
When she and Luke Make passionate love, and when her mother died I could not stop crying.
I am struggling to rate this book. Overall I like the potential of the series but have some problems in a few areas.
First: When is adultery ever alright? And should this ever be portrayed in a YA book?
Second: Even though I know it is the thing now to place a Gay person in the stories, I still prefer not to have it and definitely would not recommend it to young impressionable minds.
Third: There was a lot of mindless violence.
I really liked the series up to this point. Wendy did matured in this last book in some ways but then did some really stupid things as well. Many situations went in directions that I would rather have happen differently. The way things end up however are good and definitely better for everyone. It is just the getting there that I had problems with.
I enjoyed the story added on that tells of the future. It was cute.
I listened to all these books one after the other.
I would highly recommend the whole series to anyone who's looking for a new paranormal series - this one is about a society of trolls.
A great story by Amanda Hocking and great narration by Therese Plummer.
I'm not sure the Wendy of Ascend is the same Wendy that was in Switched. Within a few months, she's gone from sounding like a fairly normal girl to a very proper royal. She marries her gay friend, knowing he's gay, though she keeps a few make out buddies on the side. She even has sex with one of them, after her husband beats her up while not in his right mind. Of course, he is completely blameless since he wasn't in his right mind. Sound convoluted? Yep, that's because it is!
Don't waste your money on this one, or book # 2. They were equally bad.
I liked Willow because she grew as a person through the story.
A little disappointed in the very cliche ending. I kind of wished for a strong somewhat independent queen at the end but wasn't unhappy with the 'happily ever after'.
I was surprised at how much I liked this series. I picked the first book out just browsing for something to listen to. I enjoyed it so much I ordered the rest of the trilogy and listened to the whole series very quickly. Therese Plummer did a great job with the narration.
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
I would. It's a great story about love, sacrifice, duty, honor. I love the happily ever after of course.
Wendy steps up her game, finally! She puts her kingdom first, good girl. She manages to be a good Queen, a fierce warrior, and get the man she wants in the end. Oh and stop a brutal war.
She does a great job!
Yes it was!
Happily ever after works for me!
I loved this story....a good series for younger readers as well as adults. I would recommend to anyone that likes a little of the mythical mixed with the 'real' world.
