Ascend (Trylle Trilogy Book 3) by Amanda Hocking Review

Hi readers, I've just finished Ascend, the final book in the Trylle trilogy and I LOVED it! 

5 stars (it would be more if I could)! 

This again carries the plot on from Torn. There are twists that I didn't see coming to be honest. 

Spoilers below. 

At the end of Torn we saw Wendy having to decide whether or not to go to war against her father. She does go to war because it's the only way to end the fighting between everyone. The actual fighting only takes a couple of chapters to get through, which I liked. 

What this book really focuses on is that we all need to help each other get through hard things in life sometimes. For example, when Wendy's mother dies everyone rallies round to help her through the pain. And in the planning of the fight as well. 

Elora's death was actually more small scale than I thought it would be. I thought Wendy would be crying for lots of chapters afterwards but she wasn't, which was refreshing. She knew she still had her priorities, that she still had a kingdom to run now without her mother. 

Wendy and Tove's relationship doesn't go anywhere. In fact, he asks to end it when he tells Wendy that he's gay. We don't see any backlash from this decision. 

The main characters go to help another town of Trylle that's been wrecked by the war. Here, Wendy and Loki realise just how much they feel for one another. Ascend takes on a slight new adult twist here. Nothing is graphically described but we as readers know what's happening. While it wasn't Finn that Wendy was intimate with, Loki continued to grow on me throughout this book. I think I preferred him to Finn at the end, for Wendy at least. 

I don't want to spoil what happens at the end or who wins the war but yeah, this book couldn't have really been much better for me! 

I'm looking forward to reading my next book soon...

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy Review...
Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…
