In a world of supernaturals, I am something else.
Ascension Day turned Average Joes into spell-casting savants, Plain Janes into glamorous vampires, and the homeless guy at the intersection of Sunset and Santa Monica into the alpha werewolf of Los Angeles. Unfortunately for me, my Ascension was… unique. I was struck by lightning and can't stop throwing sparks.
For the last fourteen years, hiding has kept me safe from the government, while my uncle's magic has kept the public safe from me. Now, just when I've found some semblance of control over my power, my world turns upside down again. A terrorist organization has kidnapped my dad, thrusting me to the center of an investigation that quickly reveals my anonymity was only an illusion.
Some of the most famous, dangerous supernaturals in the world surround me, and their agendas are as mystifying as my growing powers. My sworn protector is none other than Connor Thorne — arguably the oldest, most powerful vampire in existence. But even silver linings cast shadows; Connor has more secrets than I do.
My name is Fiona Sullivan, and for better or worse, the world is about to find out exactly who I am.
Ascension is the first installment of a new Urban Fantasy series packed with action, mystery, and romance. Perfect for fans of Kim Harrison, Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, and Charlaine Harris.
1Y. Ascension 7/10
Free iBook paranormal romance. Enjoyable. Good writing, not excellent. Fiona has a secret power that she has been trying to control for 14 years - since the Ascension happened and the human race changes overnight, and 50 million people died. In Fiona’s case she was struck by lightning and ever since she has wild lightning inside her. Afraid she would become a science specimen, her father (he became a shapeshifter) and uncle (who became a mage) have been helping her control her power and hide her from the authorities. However her father goes missing and Fiona comes to the attention of the extremely powerful, ancient and sexy vampire, Connor. She fights her attraction to him, as she tries to find her father.
Highly captivating, sitting on the edge of your seat read. Looking forward to the Reckoning.
