Review: Ascension - Caris Roane

Alison Wells is no ordinary woman. Born with supernatural powers, she can never make love to a man without putting him in grave danger. But when her special vision reveals a glorious muscled man soaring overhead on mighty wings, she feels an overwhelming attraction she cannot resist—even as he tells her: "I have come for you. Your blood belongs to me." 

Kerrick is a vampire and a warrior who has fought his hunger for a woman's love for the past two hundred years. As a Guardian of Ascension, he is sworn to protect Alison from the death vamp armies who crave her blood and her power. But Kerrick has cravings of his own—a forbidden longing to open his heart and veins to Alison. To share his blood...satisfy his thirst...and seal their fates forever.

My thoughts:
I had problems with this book. It was good, but the whole world felt stupid to me. When I think ascension I think of good people, wise people, ascending. Here, not so much. There are people that have powers and they can then ascend to 2nd earth...another dimension. And all these people seem to be total idiots, power hungry, violent apes. Yes, the author talks about gardens in the beginning but those are forgotten when we near the end get a vision of "Rome and fighting to the death in an arena". Oh and did I forget to tell you, those who ascend becomes vampires for some reason. I just could not deal with the world.

Anyway, Alison is gonna ascend, baddies come after her. She is really really powerful. Kerrick is a mighty warrior with a chip on his shoulder. They lust for each other, they smex around...and now I remember the world again. I can't get over it!

It was good to a point where something happened and after that I just felt the world was too stupid...I will put a spoiler in my review on my blog edit:.....and damn now I have forgotten what that was as I read the book a month ago...it did not really stay with me.

  14. Is it bad of me, I have always judged this book by its cover. It doesn't do anything for me and looks a little cheesy...so I have never picked it up.
    Ahh, the power of the cover.
