Peek Inside Ascendancy

I’ve been lied to, deceived, and manipulated—again. You’d think I’d be treated with dignity and respect. I’m the one who’s supposed to save humanity, right? But the clones want to control me, force me to give birth over and over again. And my daughters will face the same fate—unless I change it. With Michael on my side, though, maybe I can save us. He’s the only person I can trust.

I’ll never let them control me…

I’ve been lied to, deceived, and manipulated—again. You’d think I’d be treated with dignity and respect. I’m the one who’s supposed to save humanity, right? I’m the one with the power to re-populate this dying world. But the clones want to control me, force me to give birth over and over again. And my daughters will face the same fate—unless I change it.

My awakening into this future should have been a chance for a new life, but it just promises a living death. With Michael on my side, though, maybe I can save us. He’s the only person I can trust.

I hear rumors of others… A secret society is growing. Tension is building.

A rebellion is imminent.

Fast-paced with plenty of action, kangaroos and crocodiles. Interesting premise about a future world where only one girl - Cassie - and her three daughters and her three IVF babies are the only fertile females on the planet. I feel uncomfy about the fact that she was impregnated while unconscious... ...more

So, despite my two-star review for the first book, I wanted to continue with the series because I still really like the concept and idea behind this series. And I will say, this book was much better in comparison to the first.

I still think it had a lot of problems, and even new ones, but it WAS a... ...more

I received a copy of an e-arc from Netgalley and Entangled Teen

This book picks up right where book one ends. Although I will say the way Mirror X ends makes you think Cassie and Michael have been recaptured. Ascendancy is certainly action packed. Cassie and Michael are on the run trying to get ba... ...more

I recently wanted a change at times and get into novels that had more story with occasionally hints of romance plus even see what the youth was into. I was given the opportunity to read this one so I snatched it. It is a not read alot storyline for me so refreshing and exciting it became. I do no... ...more

This was a super fast paced story and I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read book 1 first. Since I did not read the first book some of Cassie and Michaels story had holes in it for me, but it did not take me long to get up to speed. I may pick up the first book to fill in some holes,... ...more
