      This review first appeared here on my blog.Ascent took me by surprise and it is certainly a series that I am eager to follow I was drawn in by the description I m really into dystopian books but sometimes it feels like they re all following the same basic concept and not straying very far from it Ascent, however, looked like it had something different to offer, and it definitely did This book is based around a political party but it s much exciting than that sounds The Party is quickly taking o [...]

      Ascent tells the story of three special teens and their journey through time literally With the invention of the Slider, Rick a computer geek hacker, Farrah Kate daughter of the late movie star, and Matt all American football senior have the oppurtunity to fix their mistakes in order to progress with The Party, which is the last political party standing.Wow This book blew my mind It s time travel after all But with it being my first time travel book, I don t know all of the rules of how a book l [...]

      This was pretty much a waste of time Maybe it would appeal to someone who actually was a junior in highschool, like these characters are, but otherwise eh The idea for the book had promise, but it never delivers The characters are flat and annoying, with the exception of one of them who is flat but at least sort of interesting, and the plot just sort of sputters out I do understand there is a sequel and so they book was left sputtering out on purpose but it certainly wasn t done in a way to make [...]

      Ascent was ok Not and not less I bought this book because I thought it was interesting to see how exactly a political party like The Party could come to power, and how the different people would react to that.Unfortunately, Ascent deals mainly with three teens and their individual problems I didn t care for any of them.There was Farrah Kate, the child of some actress who killed herself She was whiny, boring and annoying, talking the whole time about her mother and watching her movies Just how o [...]

      I ve had this on my Kindle for a couple years, so I figured it was finally time to give it a whirl I enjoyed it a lot than I thought I would based on the summary The book is read through the POVs of three characters Farrah, Matt, and Rick Oftentimes, characters sound the same authors have difficulty really setting them apart That wasn t the case here They were all easily identifiable, especially Rick.The premise of the book is very original While the plot of a new political party gradually take [...]

      Had this been given to a good editor as a manuscript, it might have been considerably better There were a ton of typos and grammatical errors that an editor would have corrected, and that seriously detracted from the reading The characters all read the same, even using the exact same descriptions sometimes the exact same phrases to describe certain things There was no depth to them at all In fact, if I didn t read the character s name whose POV marks each chapter, I was never able to tell whose [...]

    7. Holly on said:

      I m not finishing this book for a couple of reasons Firstly it has the classic flaw of most self published books distracting typos that any copy editor should catch.Secondly the time line It s obvious in the beginning that it is supposed to take place in the near future in a world where people don t remember Farrah Fawcett except the character who is named after her and where people don t care about movie stars or watch old tech like DVD s Where it falls apart for me is that the Farrah Kate char [...]

      3.5 stars Really interesting idea, but some really big holes in the time traveling concept Also, by the end of the book I still have no idea what is really going on with the world at large, the riots, how the party plays into it It felt like of a prologue than a book with how few details are included as to the overall plot.

    9. Kel (Faerie-bookworm) on said:

      It was ok Good character development and great idea for a story but it didn t grab me What s scary is that parts of it could happen like the Party taking over and all I wouldn t discourage anyone from reading it but for me it just didn t pull me in like other books have I will probably end up reading the next book just to find out what happens I m rooting for Matt.

    10. Kjirstin on said:

      Interesting I quite liked the story and will be curious to see what happens with the rest of the series There were some weird errors that stuck out to me carbon monoxide instead of carbon dioxide , allusive instead of elusive But hey, why quibble It was a good story and a fun, quick read.

    11. Tracy on said:

      This started off like it would be really great because I like time travel, but then the alien element was added, and it seemed out of place It seemed like it went fast but it was like the author was stalling, and the end left a lot of questions I know the trend is to write a series, but a complete book would be nice, without trying to lure us into buying the next one.

    12. Kara-karina on said:

      The concept of time travel is fascinating, and this book reads like a screenplay and reminds me of Quantum Leap I could really see it as amazing TV series, but again it s way too short, and there is no information about a possible continuation of the series Overall, thumbs up.

    13. Sheree on said:

      I did not finish this book It felt like a bunch of short stories I am sure if I continued to read, it would all eventually come together however, I felt no connection to any of the characters and thus not compelled to continue on.

    14. Tracee on said:

      I really liked this book It is a little political, which usually isn t my favorite, but it s not symbolic or hard to understand It s a fun and interesting read I can t wait for the next one to come out

    15. Carly on said:

      I didn t expect much from this book after downloading it for less than a dollar in the Kindle store but I was pleasantly surprised It was a bit repetitive and had some spelling errors but I liked it a lot.

    16. Charles on said:

      Great story This book has a little sci fi in it, but it was done well and believably I m looking forward to reading the next installment

    17. Dawn Price on said:

      Left behind with a twistcan t wait to see what happens next Will Matt and Rick expose the party what do little green men and big foot have to do with politics.

    18. Nikki on said:

      seemed like a really long prologue with semi resolution for the characters

    19. Starla B on said:

      I think the story had potential, but didn t quite reach it It felt too forced, and too much like a collection of short stories.

    20. Kat on said:

      I really, really liked this original story and I can t wait to get my hands on the next one
