Ascendant: Book 1 audiobook cover art

I really tried to stay with this book, but am amazed how someone can fill up so many hours basically writing the same thing over and over. Poor boy, lost his parents, everyone has it out for him but really he is a hero. I stayed with it by jumping chapters, but it didn't help - same thing over and over. And we are expected to believe a 13 year old boy would act and think like this one. I finally gave in, read the last chapter to find that his story is continued in the next book. Not one that I will be getting.

This has got to be the worst narrated book I have ever tried to listen to. The story is not all that interesting - in fact it is rather juvenile - which makes it even harder to try to get through it. I am giving up and returning it.

I needed a book on a long drive and that is the only reason I got as far as I did before I quit this book. It is simplistic, ridden with cliches, juvenile, and has the barest of plots.

I was hoping that the second book would be better but was so wrong. Every cliché that can be thought of is in these books, as long as it can be used to embarrass and make the main character look foolish. The narrator does the best she can, but even she cannot overcome the continuing ineptness of the main character.

I had a really hard time with this one. I fast forwarded - a lot! - to get to the end. And if I had not been on a very long road trip with this being my only recorded book, I would have quit about 1/3 of the way in.

The people is in this book are universally unlikable. Katie's husband spent all their money on a craft fair and then died and left her with the business which was not making money - the husband who supposedly had the same dreams of a B&B she had. No explanation as to why he spent the money without her knowledge. The current boyfriend is self centered and uncaring, to the point I wanted to shake Katie for putting up with it. The people who are supposedly her friends treat her badly and she lets them. And all the time she is whining about needing to find somewhere to live in a few days. In the end, she is planning on manipulating her boyfriend to let her end up with the apartment he owned and had not wanted to rent her.

Like many others I have been a fan of SEP for years. I have all of her books, even the last two. Those last two were far below the previous ones, but they were readable. I could not get through even half of this one. Maybe because it was audible which made the dolls even more annoying and creepy, but I actually hated it so much that I could not finish. Every character in it was pretty much unlikable, the plot was trite, even the dialog was tired. I am definitely returning this one.

This was a nice book to listen to while driving or working around the house. A little slow getting started, but the main characters were interesting. My only real issue was with the narrator, who did a fine job overall, but evidently was unfamiliar with some of the words and would mispronounce them. For example the word "coup" was used several times, but it was spoken as "coop".

I am not a fan of series books - the first two or three are usually good and then the stories either start to repeat or are just full of filler. This is the fifth book in this series and there are definite signs of fatigue. Lily is suppose to be this really powerful witch, but all through this book she is weak, needing rescue several times and pines for her lost love through most of it. I finished the book, but if there is a sixth in the series I am not sure I will take a chance. I have enjoyed the first books of the series.

The narrator was very good, and a lot of the story was good. The dialogue was very well written, the story line was a good one even though it was a little drawn out, but the "hero" of the story was super annoying. Basically he whined throughout the whole book about his disability - he seemed to have a pity party in just about every chapter. I fast forwarded toward the end just to get through with the book.

The story is OK, not very deep and I would like it to be more about hacking than how inept she is around people. The narrator is fine with Lexi's dialog, but when she tries to do accents, they are so bad (especially Italian) that it is distracting from the story.
