Return Of The Ascendant

a fun plus 104

Synopsis: Expecting to enjoy another typical college night at a frat party with friends, Kyra Vaughn’s plans derail when she’s almost killed…twice. Her savior, a tall, sexy stranger who calls himself TaeDane, claims that he’s the personal bodyguard for the Ascendant of Alametria. She’s convinced he’s crazy.

Especially when he insists that she’s the Ascendant.

With dark enemies hunting her down, Kyra has no choice but to trust her supposed bodyguard. Ty vows to help her remember her past and return her safely to Alametria, but someone seems intent on interfering, challenging his abilities at every turn.

As Kyra’s memories emerge, she remembers that Ty is more to her than he’s let on…much more than he’s allowed to be. She’ll also discover that there are many things about her planet and herself that she’d rather forget. In the end, she’ll have to make a choice: cling to the life she knows, or risk it all to become the person she’s destined to be.


My Review

I was truly excited for the opportunity to read Return Of The Ascendant! I am a true fan of Author Raine Thomas loving all of her works, and so I was beside with excitement with reading a new series from this author!:O)

Return Of The Ascendant follows college student Kyra Vaughn whose biggest concern was the birthday outing she  and best friends Avana and Sam would attend. But things changed when her birthday outing was transformed into an introduction into an entirely new world!

Soon not only does Kyra learn that she is not from Earth, but that she is a great ruler…considered an almost Savior in her home world; and also reeling from that knowledge and the fact that the parents(Earth) , her best friends and all that she thought was “real” to her was not…Kyra at some points feels as if she will not be able to deal with it all. But the bright spot in all of that which is happening to Kyra is Ty; the incredibly hot protector who she instinctively is drawn to, although she has no memories him. But when Kyra is returned back to her world, she is not happy with all that she discovers…her birth parents are  cold almost indifferent towards her…and many of those in the foreign world…desires to see Kyra destroyed.

As she tries to adjust to her home again and to the knowledge of who she once was and the fact that her love for Ty is forbidden …Kyra has the desire to reject all that’s new and return to what is familiar.

But soon choices must be made and an enemy faced that leaves Kyra with the choice of  allowing those she love and those she was born to protect in danger or to fulfill her destiny!

Author Raine Thomas never fails to thrill with her action packed plots, steamy encounters and well written stories! I love Kyra’s strength, her voice is realistic and feisty. Ty is protective, gorgeous and I enjoy seeing the relationship with the two evolve. I sometimes giggle at his frustration when Kyra does not remember who they were to the other, or his slight jealousy of Sem’s (Sam’s) affection for Kyra. But it is very evident there is no one else that can come close to Ty in Kyra’s heart!

I also really liked the characters Avana who would be the type of best friend I would love to have and Sam (Sem) with his “Damon(Vampire Diaries) good-looks…he also made it onto my book boyfriend list as well!!:O)

I truly despise Vycor ugh…that is all I can say regarding this character! Lol

One of the tickle moments for me was when Kyra was introduced to the Palace’s mode of transportation which for this incredibly advanced society was a horse and carriage! Her jaw simply dropped:O)

I truly enjoyed Return Of The Ascendant with its fast-moving plot, well written and well-rounded characters…gorgeous guys and strong females plus very HOT scenes this is a fantastic read! I recommend to anyone that likes Paranormal, Sci-Fi or Fantasy. Also I recommend for 18 years plus due to some adult situations:)

I can barely wait for the next book in the  Ascendant series!! Please hurry up Ms. Thomas with the next book!:O)
