Praise for Ascend

 "This series has a bit of everything—magic, myth, action, romance…ah, the romance!  There is something so appealing about forbidden love, especially when it leads to a happily-ever-after.  I have to say, I love the way this ended.  Of course, I won’t give spoilers, but the ending was perfect." --Diary of A Bibliophile 

“Hocking is so talented in her ability to mold characters and have them grow, a rare talent many authors lack.  She has the ability to make the growth of these characters amazingly realistic.  Now, I won't give anything away but I will say READ them! They are amazing!” –The First 100 Pages

“I read these three books back-to-back-to-back. The story had me so engaged, that I could not put it down. I was reading in the car, at school, on my bed, at the dinner table, and in the media room. You could call it an obsession.” –Reading Vacation Reviews

Loved this book! One of the best final books I've ever read. I feel like the ending went a little fast but Im a sucker for a nice happy ending and I just plain LOVE this series!” –Library Thing

With each book, we have seen Wendy transition from a young girl to a strong heroine.  And with the romance, Hocking throws in a nice surprising twist that was refreshing, and which makes Ascend shine even brighter.  The Trylle Trilogy is recommended for all paranormal fans no matter what your age.” –Nocturne Romance Reads

A very fast read, I really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone that likes romance, conflict, and the paranormal.” –Kathy’s Book Bag
