Book Description:

In the Midst—a place for those who die young—there are no rules except one.
And Walker Callaghan, dead at seventeen, just broke it. She briefly revisited her earthly life . . . and the punishment is eternal. Longing for her rebel love interest, Daniel Reid, Walker finds an ally in Cass, whose attraction to her is as alive as he is. “Life is short,” he tells her. “I’m banking on eternity. With you.”

In the second book of the Ascenders Saga, a realm-jumping journey takes Walker and Daniel back to life again when they search for something buried in history. They team with students from several other schools in the middle realm including a place for teens born with oddities. It’s home to the Claires . . . beautiful, ruthless, and quite dead seventeen-year-old quads who each have a different clairvoyant gift.

Can Walker survive another adventure of an afterlife-time—or at the tender age of seventeen will she find herself on the downside of eternity?

My Take on the Book:

Well now…

I didn’t expect to like this book or at least not as much as I did. After reading book 1 and falling in love, I jumped into the book and found I was completely unable to put the book down.

The same characters I fell in love with from the first book are here and then I got introduced to new characters you aren’t sure you want to love or like even. I was swept away into this world that I never wanted to like, but I couldn’t help myself and lo and behold I did more than like this series and this book in particular. I loved it.

There is so much you want to know about these characters and this story when you first meet them and there is so much you are left questioning when you finish the first book so I found this to be an informative and enthralling follow up to an already intriguing series.


5 Quills

This book definitely falls under the meatier category, taking me longer than most books to read. Each chapter is split into portions and contrary to my initial reaction, I find that it actually helps with the flow of each chapter subsequently helping the flow of the story. It is easy to comprehend and uses popular well known figures in media to drive its point across. I think this was a legitimately good follow up to a book that I really enjoyed, and I can’t wait to read more from this promising series.
