~*~ ARC Review ~*~ Return of the Ascendant (Ascendant #1) By Raine Thomas




Expecting to enjoy another typical college night at a frat party with friends, Kyra Vaughn’s plans derail when she’s almost killed…twice. Her savior, a tall, sexy stranger who calls himself TaeDane, claims that he’s the personal bodyguard for the Ascendant of Alametria. She’s convinced he’s crazy.

Especially when he insists that she’s the Ascendant.

With dark enemies hunting her down, Kyra has no choice but to trust her supposed bodyguard. Ty vows to help her remember her past and return her safely to Alametria, but someone seems intent on interfering, challenging his abilities at every turn.

As Kyra’s memories emerge, she remembers that Ty is more to her than he’s let on…much more than he’s allowed to be. She’ll also discover that there are many things about her planet and herself that she’d rather forget. In the end, she’ll have to make a choice: cling to the life she knows, or risk it all to become the person she’s destined to be.


My Review

Firstly I want to thank the lovely Raine Thomas for kindly providing me with a copy of “Return Of The Ascendant” to read and review.

I’ve seen this book posted around a few times and I kept telling myself that’s next on my list to read, but I never got the chance, but NOW I have, and OMG.! I can’t believe I waited so long….

Return of the Ascendant is action packed with a sprinkle of forbidden romance to keep the reader intrigued…

Kyra thinks her friends are pranking her and some “HOT” dude is just in on it for the sake of a few shits & giggles….but oh no….she really is in danger, and she’s from another planet entirely….oh and did I mention that she’s not only some holy princess but the Ascendant?….yeah shit’s just got real….

Always on the lookout for the enemy Ty is finding his job harder and harder the more time he’s spending with Ky….although he knows of their past, she does not.

Ty is strong, loyal, and of course overbearing, but he’s totally swoonworthy and droolworthy

As Kyra slowly begins to remember her past and accept her future as the Ascendant, things start to seriously hit the fan, enemies are at the forefront, loved ones stand against her…

Who can she really trust?

There are lots of trials and hurdles that both Ky & Ty have to face, but the question is…do they face it alone, or together as one?

Will they have a future together?

Can she be the leader the prophecy claims her to be, or will she fail before even given a chance?
