fast paced ride!

Narrator: ok, differentiations could be more obvious.
Language: none
Violence: murder, space age battles,
Sexual Content: brief reference to female anatomy, crude your mama jokes with string innuendo
Parents: 16 or older for book 1.
Story: this review encompasses all three books.

Ascent book 1: relatively fast paced and intriguing. The complications seem a little too easily overcome, like to the point of almost blatant convenience. Outside of that glaring problem the adventure and world are well described along with the slow unveiling of the public discontent. Some of the twists are scary similar to Ender’s Game but overall it’s a fun read.

Slide book 2: buckle up as things get rough in this book! Think of the adage “climbing a gravel mountain” 3 steps forward, 5 steps back. Well written, extremely action and drama packed. A fantastic intermediate book of the trilogy. You could read this without the first book but obviously I’d recommend starting with book one.

Peak book 3: enjoyable close to the series. Decent twists, lots of action, gives solid hunger games/Enders game vibes.

Overall I would recommend this series as its dramatic, action packed, and just an enjoyable fast paced read/listen.

Great story

The story was great. Lots of action and conflict. There were a few obvious things that it seemed the main character missed or could have done when he finds his true nature but that’s just my rational brain thinking out load. With that being said it doesn’t take from the story at all. Would highly recommend and can’t wait until book 4 is released

Great Read

It took a while to get thru, but it was an amazing read. Reminds me of a mecha fallout world.
