What It's About! 

Wendy Everly is facing an impossible choice. The only way to save the Trylle from their deadliest enemy is by sacrificing herself.  If she doesn’t surrender to the Vittra, her people will be thrust into a brutal war against an unbeatable foe.  But how can Wendy leave all her friends behind…even if it’s the only way to save them?
The stakes have never been higher, because her kingdom isn’t the only thing she stands to lose. After falling for both Finn and Loki, she’s about to make the ultimate choice…who to love forever. One guy has finally proven to be the love of her life—and now all their lives might be coming to an end. 
Everything has been leading to this moment.  The future of her entire world rests in her hands—if she’s ready to fight for it.

Ascend is my favorite book out of the whole trilogy. Whatever we didn't get in the first two books, (for me there were a few things, especially in Torn) this book definitely makes up for it. The whole book had a good flow of never-ending events that kept me reading almost non-stop once I finally started it.

There are a few surprising things, we lose a character or two, but they are pretty much expected. Some are almost lost and I was ssooo glad when we didn't totally lose them in the end! Speaking of the end, I really love the way the trilogy ended. It ended perfectly, with a few unexpected turns. I love who Wendy ended up with and that she ended up being with who she truly loved.

In Ascend, Wendy was a lot less annoying and bratty. She has grown SO much as a character since being introduced to her in the first book, Switched. She finally fully came into her role as Princess, then eventually, as Queen. I also came to really like Loki and Tove, too.

What I didn't really understand though, was the fact that there was almost no Rhys or Riannon. They were just never mentioned except for once or twice, then at the end we find out what where they were headed next. I don't know if Hocking just forgot about them totally, with everything else that happens, or if she purposely left them out.

Other than that, I completely loved Ascend. I almost didn't want to finish it, it's that amazing!
