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.
It was ok. The narration was good, but the story lacked the character development to really keep my interest.
I absolutely love audible! I read constantly and there is nothing better than finding a new series to follow. I'm a syfy/fant kinda gal.
Yes, I prefer audible versions to the print versions 98% of the time. I enjoyed the narrator in all of the books.
The confrontation was the most memorable moment. It was both climatic and fulfilling to the reader.
I have listened to all of this series books with Ms. Plummer's narration. She has mastered the voices in this series very well.
GOOD VS EVIL; AN EPIC BATTLE.
This was a great ending to the series. I read through all of the books within two weeks and am satisfied with the outcome. Good read.
i love reading books. I had a child and found that i couldn't hold a book long enough to read, so i started listening to books. It's great!
It was engaging from the very beginning
The other Torn series
Her dramatization was very good. Felt like i was actually listening to the real characters speak.
The Trylle Trilogy, Switched, Torn and Ascend. I loved the series so much I couldn't wait for the order to come in at our library where I'm a librarian so i downloaded it as soon as I could because I wanted to know what was going to happen
Wendy Everly, Loki, Finn, Willa and how could I forget Duncan he was a bit of a dork but he had a big heart. So as you can tell I can't find just one character as my favorite.
Very good expression and emotion.
When Wendy's mother Told her that she loves her and is proud of her? And then her mother sadly passes away.I hope I don't give to much away
Read the books I promise You won't regret it!
No, not better, but audio is the only way that I get to keep up with my reading. I read, or listen to, about 2 books per week. Without audio books it would be one a month.
