Let me take the time out of my busy schedule of kids, husband, work (job), work (being a housewife)and reading to point out to you that I would like all the books in this series now! I do not believe I am being unreasonable. If you believe I am being "unreasonable" then please blame yourself.
Yes woman you heard me right! All your fault. Why you may ask? Because you write freakishly fantastical amazingly good. You have me in knots thinking about what will happen. Bringing up all these sce ...more
Now See I loved this book. So So much better than the last one. What shocked me the most is this book made me not hate Marguerite I could enjoy her spunk now that she isn't hoeing around and now that she is all pregnant with the twins being good to Thorne so that was a nice change! I thought I would be upset with Grace over sleeping with Casimir, but she wrote well enough that I wasn't mad about her leaving with him and I grew to even like Casimir. The Reasons she had to Brehs made since to me and ...more
Don't read the review if you're not up to date with the series, it has minor spoilers.
Characters: Grace and Leto
The story starts 5 months from where Thorne’s and Marguerite’s book ended. CR sets the scene perfectly, showing us what Leto and Grace are doing at the moment and, at the same time, giving us information of the changes in her world. Leto, the spy playing vampire, was left in a bad shape: recovering from anARCDon't ...more

This was such a great ending to a wonderful series!
I just hope for more stories, like Luken, Zach and Santiago's story.
And Endelle's own story. It all ended so SUDDEN!
But hey, I'm not complaining since it does have a HEA! :)
Read this series peeps! :D

The story of Leto Distra and Grace of Albion is the one, that I have to say I liked most in the whole Ascension series, and not just because of the characters- because Jean-Pierre and Fiona win that trophy- but because of the whole, overall picture that was so nicely and entertainingly presented.
The best part about this book was that it was the most well-developed, well-written and consisted characters you could actually con ...more

Gates of rapture has to be one of my favorites of the series. As the battle against Greaves comes to a head, Leto and Grace must play their roles and find their path in both the war and their breh. I must commend Caris Roanes for the other characters like Endelle, Casimir, Patience, Brulio etc. They're amazing secondary characters that I wouldn't mind hearing more about. Casimir in particular. I still have a big soft spot for Alison and & Kerrick and A ...more
We have watched the Warriors fall one by one and finally we see Leto find his way. We left Second Earth with Grace having found out that she has not one but two Breh.. an unheard of concept and Grace choosing Casimer not Leto.. seriously? Leto is all that is noble, having given up decades ...more
This is the sixth and final book of the Guardians of Ascension series, with the story continuing later with The Darkening, which will be the second of the Dawn of Ascension spin-off novella series. This will be following on from Brink of Eternity.
Caris Roane has done it again. Going into Obsidian Flame, I was ready to hate Marguerite but I ended up loving ...more

Leto was thought to be a traitor to the Warriors of the Blood, but it was revealed that he'd been a spy in the enemy's army—Darian Greaves' army—for 100 years. Previously, Grace rescued Leto from Greaves and Leto and Grace discovered that they were brehs, fated mates. Unfortunately, Grace also discovered that she was the breh of the hedonistic enemy, Casimir. She sees in a vision that she must leave Leto and be with Casimir in order for Leto to survive in the future. And so she hurts Leto ...more
Gates of Rapture the sixth book in the Guardian of Ascension Series receives a 2
I have just finished this book and can't help but feel both disappointment, somewhat of acceleration and cheated.
Firstly disappointment because I have waited what feels like a decade for this continuation of this series; I ordered it from Chapters and have waited two weeks since I have purchased it to read this novel so that it would be given my full inte ...more
Grace is our heroine in this book and she's spent a good portion of the last few hundred years in various convents and in religious contemplation. She's an extremely good person and cares about people and I'm pretty sure she hasn't had even a handful of bad thoughts about anyone in her life ...more
This is the last book of the series (from her publishing house at least). What I liked about this book was that Leto and Grace were able to complete the breh-hedden without any of the drama of the other pairs. Though that’s not entirely true either - as the only reason why they completed it was because they both had a certain intuition that ...more
Wolf with Benefits is only the second book I've read in the Pride series and I have to say I love this series. It is laugh out loud funny. I read this while at home which I was glad about because then I only get funny looks from my other half instead of random strangers or co-workers wondering what the hell I'm reading.
Toni is a great character. Actually all the characters in Wolf with Benefits are well written and humorous. But Toni really shines through she feels she's no ...more

The last of a series is always bittersweet and has so much work to do -- but luckily the adventures of our kilted, flying vamps is spun off to a sister series but not before doing their due diligence here.
Tortured warrior Leto Ditra's star turns starts a little slow for my taste as he is still in mourning for his relationship with Grace Albion. But not for long as Grace's decision to join the war as a fighter kick-starts the action in Endelle's camp as well as in Greaves' as G ...more
A climactic ending to a stellar series . Just as with the other books in the series , Gates of Rapture is filled with twists & turns . With more than it's fair share of action the story will keep the reader on the edge of their seat . Yet , it is at heart , a story of redemption .
For over a century , Leto allowed his brethren to think him a traitor while he served as a spy in Greaves army . Now , he is suffering , with body & soul , for the things he did at the socio-paths behest . He i ...more
