This was the most "supernatural" of the other two books in the series. A lot changed in this book and at first I held a piece of animosity towards the author for a certain development, but it ended up working out. I am happy with the way she ended this series. This book series was definitely a roller coaster ride full of emotional upheaval but totally worth it. I do have a couple minor complaints, but I don't want to taint your view of the book. Because ultimately its a good story, a good read & ...more

The Saving Angels series has come to an end, which makes me sad. I know Tiffany probably has some amazing new idea up her sleeve that will steal my heart again, but in the mean time, I think I will mourn the loss of this one . . . and maybe go re-read Book One, Meant To Be :-)

While the entire series has been great, I must say that Meant To Be will always be my very favorite. It is impossible to top the first time Krista and Mark meet and when they fell in love. Then, of course, Book 2 completely

I was one of the lucky few to get to read an ARC of one of my favorite authors Tiffany King's latest books, The Ascended (The Saving Angels Series book #3)and I can't say enough great things about it!

The Ascended is the third and last book in the Saving Angels Series and picks up two months after the end of Forgotten Souls. We are left still with Krista's heartbreak over Mark's betrayal and her determination to find her lost link and save him from what he feared most.

4.5 out of 5 stars!

Wow. What a beautifully fitting end to a great Trilogy! King did a really good job at packing the punch, drama, suspense, and twist and turns to the end of the series. I mean, WOW! It's all I can say.

That, and I'll probably be pulling The Saving Angels Trilogy off my shelf MANY times in the future. I literally just finished this book, and I'm still in shock. I'm definitely going to keep tabs on King so I can read whatever else she has coming out!

I was finally able to finish the Saving Angel Trilogy by Tiffany King and let me just say I absolutely LOVED it. I however want more and if you did too, be sure to check out Jordyn, it’s a new series that has the characters for this trilogy and you are going to LOVE it. Our review for Jordyn will be up tomorrow! So to recap, we left of with some pretty nasty things going down in the Forgotten Souls, stuff that had me crying and left me with loads of questions.

“I couldn't help wondering briefly, as I cast it out with all my might, if The Light had bestowed my extreme gifts to me for a situation such as this. Was it his plan to make my final act one that would at least bring peace to those that he held in such high esteem?”

Krista's plan is to rescue Mark regardless of what the consequences are. With the help of Haniel and the other links, they set off to fight Victor and his Daemons. On the journey, Krista accepts her new fate and that is what ultimately helps get her through the mission. Will she be able to save Mark? Can they overpower Victor and his minions? Lots of questions, but only one result is acceptable.

My Take:
I'm very sad that this is the ending of this series. I have fallen in love with all th

To read my full review:

This book concludes the awesome Saving Angels series by Tiffany King, and I must say I am absolutely impressed. King is a fantastic writer, and this final novel is just as compelling and mind-blowing as the first two. Whereas the first novel, Meant To Be, stole my heart, and the second novel, Forgotten Souls, broke it, this final novel has made amends and my heart is whole again. I love this series, and I love this novel. The ending

Have to say I really enjoyed this book and loved how it ended! Top notch book! I loved all the characters involved in this book and they made me enjoy the book even more. The storyline was great and there was some exciting parts to this book that are quite unexpected. I love Mark and Krista's relationship and how they pull through so much. I love Shawn and how he was so brotherly towards Krista. The prequel "The Dark Angel" was absolutely lefal! I think I cried at it through most parts of this w ...more

I really did not want this series to end, but every good thing must come to an end. Well, Tiffany King definitely knows how to end a story!

The twist and turns in this book were incredible. I was on the edge of my seat almost the whole time. Krista is an amazing character and her journey from being an Guide to Ascending is one that I will not forget anytime soon. Haniel is by far one of my favorite character in this book. He truly cares about the Guides

I was so glad I could move onto The Ascended as I finished Forgotten Souls. I was a little disappointed that it didn't start right off where Souls left off. Instead, Ascended starts almost 6 months later after Mark has left Krista. I was totally bereft at the thought of them not getting back together. I laughed and cried right along with Krista. I enjoyed seeing all the guides and protectors interacting in this sequel. It is a quick read and a great ending to the series. I also enjoyed that a pr ...more

Tiffany has done it again and wrote a magnificent book that ends the trilogy that I have loved from the start.
I remember when I first met Tiff and was one of the first people to join her blog where she would 'tease' us with paragraphs from Meant to Be. I was one of the lucky ones to get an ARC of Meant to Be and have had the pleasure of journeying with the gang as they fight those that would tear them apart.
I can say how very sad I am that this trilogy is over but I will also say how very excite

A-MA-ZING!!!! This was such a beautiful ending to the series! Krista has grown & changed so much since the beginning. She's become the most loyal & loving friend, willing to sacrifice anything & everything to help her new family even after the pain of having her heart broken. Haniel is extraordinary & surprising as usual - I really can't get enough of him! This book definitely has some pretty intense moments, but you can feel the shared love & unity among the band of friends, ...more

I am NOT one to usually get into books like this but good lawdy. I just adored this series. the way she made the daemons so very, very evil to the way that krista accepted being the way they found out about mark. I just loved it. I especially enjoyed the epilogue. it's always nice to read the "inside" stories.

Tiffany King did it again! Ascended is an exciting story. I loved the characters and watching their growth through great adversity. Admittedly, there are parts that were gruesome; glad I wasn't reading those parts at bedtime, or mealtime! I was even happy with the prologue and story sample in the end of the book.

So sad to see this series end. I absolutely loved it. Everything worked out for the best and all of our favorite characters have a HEA. There's a bonus at the end which was a treat. My one complaint was that it was so short. It almost felt rushed. Regardless, I loved it.

**Spoiler Alert**

The link between Mark and Krista had been broken. Krista's sweet dreams about his soul mate on the beach were replaced...

by nightmares about Daemons trying to hurt her. "The noise bounced off the unseen walls of the space I was in, closing in on me from every direction. I gasped in terror as a cold dead hand grabbed my arm."

Krista was determined to move out from Santa Cruz, so she could find Mark to save him or to stop him with the help of old and new friends..

Imagine your favorite dream occurring each and every night. In The Saving Angel Series by Tiffany King, this is what happens to Krista every night.

After the loss of her father, Krista and her mother decide to move to Santa Cruz. It is a new start for them, but it is also a special place for Krista. Each night she dreams of the beach there, along with a young man who she prays will be there as well. When she realizes that her dreams are now a reality, she also has to understand that she is “linke

Tiffany King, you ended this series perfectly! I honestly was not sure the way you were taking this series, especially cutting out a certain character for the majority of the book, but I can honestly say you finished the Saving Angels Trilogy perfectly! I loved the character development that the reader saw thru each character. They have all grown into great young adults.

Actual Rating: 3.5

The Ascended was a very quick read with no shortage of action. It picked up right where the last one left off. With the way the previous book ended, I had high expectations for this story.

Krista goes through a lot of changes in this book and is trying to survive without her connection to Mark.

As I said, there was a lot of action in this book and there were lives lost. And there were some little surprises towards the end.

This was amazing!! It was a great finisher and the ending...oh the ending left me with chills. It was so good.

You feel bad for Krista automatically at the beginning without Mark and know that if he doesn't return, she will die but by her own hand. Haniel is very comforting along with the rest of her friends and you see how much they care for Krista.

The other groups return to help save Mark and it is a joy to see that they are recovering from the recent lost ones. The way that they help out is

It was strange to have the couple break up in the last book instead of the second book, but it was a change from the norm and I wondered how Tiffany was going to fix it or if it was fixable. I must say that I would have been very mad if she hadn't ended it the way she did. In fact I thought the ending was amazing. I gained a whole new appreciation for Haniel in this book and the ending broke my heart at first, but then Tiffany mended it again. I will be pondering this book for a few days I am su ...more

I loved the story...just felt like the ending was kind of rushed. The story itself was spun beautifully, but once the ending came around, it felt almost like she was just ready for the story to be done and just threw it all together at once. BUT...I did LOVE the book, and will be reading more of her work.

Okay, this last book did it for me. I'm officially a fan. It was a great series! I love how the heroine stayed tough and true to herself the entire time, while bending now and again for love. The same goes for Mark. And I love that the one character who seemed to be above it all turned out to be someone so human. Great work. I read all three books in a week!
