Ascenders: Sky Punch Synopsis: *spoilers for book 1, if you haven’t read it, skip ahead!*
In the Midst—a place for those who die young—there are no rules except one.
And Walker Callaghan, dead at seventeen, just broke it. She briefly revisited her earthly life . . . and the punishment is eternal. Longing for her rebel love interest, Daniel Reid, Walker finds an ally in Cass, whose attraction to her is as alive as he is. “Life is short,” he tells her. “I’m banking on eternity. With you.”
In the second book of the Ascenders Saga, a realm-jumping journey takes Walker and Daniel back to life again when they search for something buried in history. They team with students from several other schools in the middle realm including a place for teens born with oddities. It’s home to the Claires . . . beautiful, ruthless, and quite dead seventeen-year-old quads who each have a different clairvoyant gift.
Can Walker survive another adventure of an afterlife-time—or will she find herself on the downside of eternity?
While the second book of the series is arguably one of the hardest to write, Gaber really seems to have hit her stride here. We aren’t bogged down with some of the cliches that marked the first book, and we have some excellent character development. Her already phenomenal world building gets even grander, and we end up with an adventure that makes the first trip to life look like a walk in the park. I found that related to Walker even more in this book, she’s stronger yet still utterly devastated by multiple events, and she’s always searching for answers. I was surprisingly drawn to Cass, and his story was rather fascinating, as were the Claires. There was a certain furry companion who also rejoined the fold and I just love that added bit of humor. The one-liners were strong in this one, as with the first, and there’s a good bit of smirking involved. In all it’s another fast-paced adventure fantasy in a realm of the dead, or is it undead? It’s definitely dead. Life after life isn’t boring at all. Just ask Walk-her Callaghan. You can enjoy both of these books FREE on Kindle Unlimited, or pick up a copy on another e-tailer.
