About the Book:

Return of the Ascendant is a thrilling New Adult Sci-Fi Romance

Return of the Ascendant
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.

WoW #93 - The Warrior

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: The Warrior
Series: Dante Walker 3
Author: Victoria Scott

Language: English
Expected Publication: May 6, 2014


War between heaven and hell is coming, but Dante Walker makes it look damn good.
Dante’s girlfriend, Charlie, is fated to save the world. And Aspen, the girl who feels like a sister, is an ordained soldier. In order to help both fulfill their destiny and win the war, Dante must complete liberator training at the Hive, rescue Aspen from hell, and uncover a message hidden on an ancient scroll.
Dante is built for battle, but even he can’t handle the nightmares where spiders crawl from Aspen’s eyes, or the look on Charlie’s face that foretells of devastation. To make matters worse, the enemy seizes every opportunity to break inside the Hive and cripple the liberators. But the day of reckoning is fast approaching, and to stand victorious, Dante will have to embrace something inside himself he never has before—faith.

Why I am looking forward to this: Although The Collector wasn't all it was blown up to be, and I just started reading on The Liberator, but I'm still curious to kow how it all plays out. It has some interesting characters and constellations.

1st Quarter Recap 2014

I think I had a pretty good start into the new year, but I sure didn't need to be sick three full weeks in March. Work is going okay so far, got some money in, and I'm pretty excited about finally doing what I always wanted to do. I just hope it keeps going like this!

I was really excited about the big book fair in March, but the first day I went I was already feeling a little sick, and after that night I was fully sick, so no second visit for me. Pisses me off big time, because I missed the manga section completely this time, since I wanted to go on my second day, and I also couldn't replace the cup a bought last time and broke a few months back. It was my main reason to go, and now I have to wait a whole other year... Now I at least know that I will definitively start with the manga section next year, no dice I'm going to live yet another year without a new cup!

Furthermore, I am glad that I seem to find a balance of English and German reads. It's very nice to be back in my own language just as much as I am in my second. Of course I can't be sure, but I think it might have to do with the translation work, too. Anyhoot, it's awesome and I hope it sticks!

As for me catching up on reviews from 2013 like I wanted... Well, I got them almost all done, and I sure know I wouldn't have caught up on so many if I hadn't made a list and the resolution to get them done in the first quarter. Thus, although I didn't get them all done, this is still good for me. =)


Sign of Life


I'm sorry peeps, in case anyone was actually missing me, but I am horribly sick. Two weeks already, and although it's looking up right now, I am still not doing much on the blogging front at the moment, because I can barely get through my work schedule.

But I should be back all fresh and energized, although without any new reads to share, in one or two weeks.

Love ya'll!
