On Ascendant by Diana Peterfreund

As much as I would love to write a full-review of Ascendant by Diana Peterfreund, there’s still a lot of months until it is out, so I think it’s more prudent to give a quick and dirty mini-review, and NO, not that kind of dirty.

Ascendant by Diana Peterfreund is a direct sequel to the super-awesome Rampant, which I actually really enjoyed. With Ascendant, the intros and exposition is pretty much out of the way so the book gets right on down to business. There is absolutely more sexual tension, more unicorns, more action, and a lot of moral dilemma. I loved it! What was so cool is how Peterfreund made her events grey areas. By this I mean things were taken out of a black and white context and given complexity and layers. I guess it’s awesome how we get to see two sides of a coin.

I actually enjoyed Ascendant way more than Rampant. I thought Astrid really came into her own.  Confession corner: After I finished I really had trouble finding a book to read. I mean, what’ll measure up to that kind of awesome?

And this is the part where I frantically beg for another book in Astrid’s world. Seriously, I have a jones-ing for more killer unicorns.

Be on the look out for a fantastic contest today featuring both Rampant AND Ascendant!!
