Review: Ascend by Amanda Hocking

April 24th 2012, St. Martin's Griffin
336 pages, Paperback
Received from Publisher
Third in Trylle trilogy
Young Adult Fiction

Wendy Everly is facing an impossible choice. The only way to save the Trylle from their deadliest enemy is by sacrificing herself.  If she doesn’t surrender to the Vittra, her people will be thrust into a brutal war against an unbeatable foe.  But how can Wendy leave all her friends behind…even if it’s the only way to save them?

The stakes have never been higher, because her kingdom isn’t the only thing she stands to lose. After falling for both Finn and Loki, she’s about to make the ultimate choice…who to love forever. One guy has finally proven to be the love of her life—and now all their lives might be coming to an end.

Everything has been leading to this moment.  The future of her entire world rests in her hands—if she’s ready to fight for it.

Cover Review:

I love the imagery and the fact that it actually has something to do with the story. She is coming upon the throne, but everything dark is looming around her. Great cover!


As soon as I received this book I put aside the book I was reading and delved into this one. I can’t believe it’s the last.

This aptly describes my feeling of finishing this book series. I’m incredibly sad. And did it ever go out with a bang! This is probably the best book within the series and the series is AMAZING!!!

This series was spoiled by someone complaining about the series to me on twitter while I was still on the first book, so I knew what was going to happen, but I don’t fault Wendy for her decision in the least. Wendy is dedicated to her kingdom and she will do all that is necessary to make sure it is safe even sacrificing herself. She has grown so much since the first book.

The side characters are so alive. Each one has it’s own personality, goals, and feels completely unique from another. Wendy has an incredible gang around her. They are willing to die for her.

Sorry I’m being so vague. I’m trying desperately not to spoil anything for those who haven’t read the series! This is an AMAZING series and you really should read it. Like now.



I'm a wife, student, and a dog-lover who reads when I should be folding laundry (bane of my existance), I write (rarely as academic papers consume my life), and love getting wrapped up in fiction.
