    Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful - too beautiful for words. Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings. In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.

    Angel Crawford is finally starting to get used to life as a brain-eating zombie, but her problems are far from over. Her felony record is coming back to haunt her, more zombie hunters are popping up, and she’s beginning to wonder if her hunky cop-boyfriend is involved with the zombie mafia. Yeah, that’s right—the zombie mafia. Throw in a secret lab and a lot of conspiracy, and Angel’s going to need all of her brainpower—and maybe a brain smoothie as well—in order to get through it without falling apart.

    Not even death can save her now. As a grave witch, Alex Craft can speak to the dead---she's even on good terms with Death himself. As a consultant for the police, she's seen a lot of dark magic, but nothing has prepared her for her latest case.

    Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane . . . but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now.

    Where does Ascend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Very good expression and emotion.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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
