Alison Wells is no ordinary woman. Born with supernatural powers, she can never make love to a man without putting him in grave danger. But when her special vision reveals a glorious muscled man soaring overhead on mighty wings, she feels an overwhelming attraction she cannot resist—even as he tells her: "I have come for you. Your blood belongs to me."
Kerrick is a vampire and a warrior who has fought his hunger for a woman's love for the past two hundred years. As a Guardian of Ascension, he is sworn to protect Alison from the death vamp armies who crave her blood and her power. But Kerrick has cravings of his own—a forbidden longing to open his heart and veins to Alison. To share his blood…satisfy his thirst…and seal their fates forever.
Ascension is the first in Caris Roane's paranormal romance series that Romantic Times calls "a series with epic potential."
Roane mixes winged vampires with dimensional travel in her debut, which launches the Guardians of Ascension paranormal romance series. Therapist Alison Wells has special abilities that make it hard for her to get close to people without injuring them until she meets Kerrick, a Warrior of the Blood. Alison learns about Second Earth, a dimensional world for "ascenders" who have abilities like hers. Kerrick is assigned to guard Alison as she completes her call to ascension, and soon he realizes that Alison is his fated mate. Kerrick has sworn off women after losing two wives and his children, but he is determined to keep Alison safe from an evil commander who wants her dead. While the world building is interesting, too many familiar elements a band of weary warrior vampires, and bonded mates who give off scents keep this book from truly taking flight. \n
I absolutely loved this book. A great twist to traditional vampire lore that does not get boring or lame. I'm diving into the next in the series and will wait anxiously for the third installment to be released.
Love Me Some Angels!
This was such a great book. It made me feel so many emotions. You get that warm fuzzy feeling. And the world Caris creates is so amazing. I can't wait to see where this world takes us next!
I love this world!
