If you’re looking for an intense, sexy, powerful series that will leave you breathless, look no further. Raine Thomas’ Ascendant series is the perfect blend of action, romance, thriller, and mystery as readers are taken on a ride throughout the galaxy.

Fraught with tension, Rout of the Dem-Shyr definitely made my heart hurt as I read—especially with the opening of the story, a jaw-dropping revelation that put me on pins and needles thr

You know how sometimes when you read a second book in a series, you’re disappointed because it feels like filler? Well, I am happy to tell you that this book is nothing like that!! There is so much to love here. So much action…deceit…mystery. So much fantasy…romance…emotion. Just so much of everything I love.

I devoured this book, just like I did the first one, because I loved the characters and the world the Ms. Thomas has created. Right from the first page, she had my attention and then kept it

By FARRR the best in this series so far!

UPDATE:
WOW!

Here's me thinking that Thomas couldn't top the first book in this series "The Ascendant" but she totally did. "Rout Of The Dem-Shyr" is my favourite so far, but I can see myself saying that about all the books in this series when they are released.....Thomas certainly knows how to keep the reader enthralled and intrigued and craving more...

Kyr has Ascended and is becoming more powerful each day, in the beginning of ROTDS, Thomas leaves the read

5 out of 5 stars

I received a copy from the author for an honest review.

This is an amazing sequel that I jumped right into. I loved the emotion that she drew from this story. I cherished that love and belief in love can conquer fear and forgive. Relationships are tested, and are never the same! Things will happen to them that they never saw coming!!! Raine opens up Route of the Dem-Shyr with you saying OMG!!! They thought they had more power and control then they seemed to. Things are going on t

Omg....I have said it before and I will say it many more times Raine Thomas Rocks. I often blame my baby for sleepless nights and bags and dark circles under my eyes but I think Ms Thomas really needs to take some of the blame, if she didn't write such amazing books I am sure I would get to bed at an reasonable hour.

The first chapter.. Nah the first line was all it took for me to be hooked. Straight away she fills the pages with mystery and intrigue that it is impossible to put down until the la

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. It picked up where the first one left off and started of with a bang which left me wanting to read on to find out what happened as something unexplained happened to a major character at the hands of another major character that made no sense at all. The author did a great job of taking the reader through the events leading up to the shocker. The events afterward leading up to the conclusion of the book kept my interest. I wil ...more

Great sequel to the first book! ROTDS not only follows up on the story line but also expands it in depth and breadth, allowing us to get a bigger picture of what the main characters are up against. The book starts with a twist that hooks you right away and makes you keep reading to find out what happens next. The hero and heroine are faced with seemingly insurmountable odds that just go to prove how strong their greater-than-life love is. It's a page turner and I can't wait for the 3rd and last ...more

Raine Thomas has done it again. She has consistently written high quality stories that engage, thrill and forcefully grab reader's imaginations and don't let go! Her first book, Becoming, was instantly my favorite, and just like that first series, I am hooked.
The quality of her books is easily that of a book coming out of a major publishing house, and her command of her craft is just unquestionable.
I won't go into a synopsis of the book, I will just say, if you enjoy some fantasy in your reading

In this sequel to Return of the Ascendant, the story continues with further complications between the lovers, Ascendant KyrVawn and her secret lover Dem-Shyr Taedane. The forces of evil exist in this strange new world for KyrVawn that she has no idea of. Even those closest to her cannot be trusted. The story will keep the reader going until the end is reached and the conclusion is finally realized. This is another from Raine Thomas that will keep the reader going page after page.

I really think that I liked this book better than the first one. Kyr was much more poised in this book. I enjoyed all of the intrigue. Ty was selfless and amazing as always.
I can't wait for the next book in the series! Vycor, we are coming for you!! (Mama Bear too...haven't quite decided on Papa Bear yet.) :)

This is book two in the "Ascendant" series and it is brilliant. The next book comes out before the end of the year, so get these books now, so you can read the last one, the day it releases. You will thank me for this tip and you are welcome

Man, what a way to begin a book. Rout of the Dem-Shyr starts off with a glimpse of whats to come and then it goes back to where we left off in Return of the Ascendant. The glimpse gets you wondering " what the hell happened".

In this sequel, Kyra has to go with her gut and trust those around her. Crazy things are happening in the Palace. She learns that many people are being manipulated and influenced and she has to find a way to stop it. With the help of her closest friends, she wants to righ

This book was just as awesome as the first one! I rarely give 5 stars but so far the first and second book were well deserved of that rating! I like how Kyr is strong, feisty yet loving and kind to people. She's smart and fights for Ky and her friends. I was happy that Sem and Gren had more of a role in this book and aww, Gren's nice surprise at the end! So sweet! I hope to see more of the relationship with her "parents" that raised her on earth in the third book. They seem to genuinely care for ...more

I received a complimentary copy of Rout of the Dem-Shyr for read and review...but this does not affect my honest review!

Rout of the Dem-Shyr (Ascendant#2) follows the story of Ascendant KyrVawn and her personal bodyguard and secret lover, Dem-Shyr TaeDane. Kyr is attempting to find her place in her home again and also adjust to her new role. But at the same time she cannot deny that she has changed while obtaining her life lessons on earth. Also she cannot deny her feelings for TaeDane. She hate

Another awesome offering from Raine Thomas. In the second book of the series, the action picks up from where it left off and boy, it continues throughout the book.

Now that Ty and Kyr have discovered Vycor is a power mad force to be reckoned with, who just happens to know their secret, they share a mutual hatred for him. A hatred that grows fiercely throughout the book with each shocking and devious discovery of just how low he will sink to get what he wants. He is the ultimate villain that you

Another amazing installment for the Ascendent series. From the opening pages I knew this story was goig to be an emotional rollercoaster but wow! That was a lot. I loved watching as Vycor's plan unfolded. It was so perfectly devious and solidified him as a worthwhile opponent for Kyr and Ty. I think Ty's sections were some of my favorites as he tried to navigate his way around the Dark Lands in order to seek his vengeance.

Once again another great addition to the series. I can't wait to see how

Loved!

He did what?!?!? Kyr and Ty have a love that's meant to be... There's only one problem.... It's forbidden. Kyr is meant to rule the worlds and, as her protector, Ty can't have loving her become a liability. As Kyr becomes the Ascendant it seems those closest to her want her dead and her title but Ty?!?! He was meant to protect her... He loved her... But Kyr wakes up to find he killed her.

This book will have you captivated as you race to find out the truth. Who can Kyr trust? And who just
