Now, I must ascend this veil that has released boundless evil into our world. This inheritance I posses is the key to a legacy bestowed to me; one that I have not yet discovered. My name is Jesca Sera. My reality has been pierced and it is wi ...more

*received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This is my favorite as of yet, because of all the conflicting emotions it evoked in me. Jesca's been pretty good at keeping me interested in her, as the other POVs kept the story moving with a broader perspective. I'm still a bit peeved at her for the indecision she has on the thing that I can't say, but hopefully there's a happy ending to it.

Ascend was more nostalgic than the last two books, and i shed a few tears in some parts.

Finishing the third book in this series and I am more hooked than I was before. This story is so consuming that I literally am looking for any time at all to read. The characters are so real that you feel their emotions. The story line is gripping and keeps you involved with every page. True characters of the heroes and villains are being reveled slowly thus keeping you absorbed into the story. With every page, Ezra and his band of heroes travel through dimensions to save our world and delight o

Jesca was supposed to seal the veil but Michael distracted them all and she failed. Instead, Ezra and Nate sacrificed themselves to save her and force Sam into the world beyond the veil. Nate knew that his link to Jesca would be the only way they could ever save Ezra. Jesca and the other guardians come up with a plan to rescue them and seal the veil on their way back.
It is at this point that Jesca starts to realize how much she is hurting both Nate and Xander in her indecision between them so sh

This book is where the off world action truly begins and is where choices are made and lives are now even more at risk and Jesca has some tough decisions to make. The fight between the Dobrians and Sondians is heating up. Universes are at play and all are at risk while Jesca and the Guardians are determined to let nothing get in their way. Vanessa has ramped up the action, sexual tension and Jesca's struggle to align her teenage self with the much more 'adult' self with the weight of the world a ...more

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

Well I said the last book started by hitting the ground running and so does this one. As the story progresses so to does the quality of the writing style and content, the books get better and better.

The love triangle has become a bit more complex, especially after the ending in book 2, Descend. I love both Nate and Xander's characters and want Jesca to make the right decision but it is not such an easy decision. Jesca is maturing

You will need to read Origin ( book 1) to fully appreciate the story line of this series.
Jesca,  after training camp, has been sent to Miami,  to assist against the Sondian attempt to join the Andromeda galaxy to earth,  by the use of wormholes.
She has three men in league with her in this fight against evil: her biological father, her linked fighter partner and her bonded partner. This makes life emotionally difficult for an innocent,  that she is, for each of them love her and need to protect h

This Series Just Keeps Getting Better!
This is the third book in The Copula Chronicles series and it is very important that you read this series in order starting with book one Origin, going on to Descend, and then you will NEED this book. Over the course of the series so far we have seen Jesca grow and mature a fact that is glaringly evident in this installment, and the more I get to know her, the more I just adore her. Not to say that she doesn't make decisions at time that make me want to yel

The best installment yet…
This third installment of the Copula Chronicles was my favorite to date, with the tension ratcheting up as the Guardian’s battle to save Earth takes a personal turn and Jesca and Xander must fight to save Nate and Ezra near certain death. While this book felt more character drive than its predecessors, I was so frustrated by Jesca’s stubbornness and susceptibility to the illusions that I wanted to shake her more than once. I had to remind myself that even with the weight

Book three of the Copula series stars where book two left off. Jesca and Xander must work together to find and rescue Ezra and Nate, who have been transported through the wormholes to the Andromeda universe. With the Sondians having infiltrated Earth and baking life difficult for Jesca and her allies, the stakes have never been higher.

Overall, this is another strong novel by Ms. Kimball. My biggest complaint is one that I have with many novels: Jesca has the habit of going it alone even though

I received arcs of all 4 books in this series in exchange for a honest review. First of all i do not read scifi books.After reading the blurb for the first book,i knew i was interested in giving it a chance.
The story revolves around scientific research evolving and alien type beings from a different dimension, trying to demolish earth as we know it. More importantly the characters stand out and are the ones who made me want to keep reading. Basically the books remind me of a cross between quantu

I read this entire series. I would recommend it. I would actually like to read more on the history or if possible the future of this story. I loved the way each book tied together and that before I started the series I was told right up front that all books are not necessarily Stand alone books. I truly hate cliff hangers but these weren't to bad. each booked did finish the part of the story but left me wanting to find out more. the last book tied it all up so I was not left sitting here thinkin ...more

The third book in the Copula Chronicles takes up where book two left off. Jesca and Xander must work together to find a way to get Ezra and Nate back after they saved her from Sam's clutches but got pulled into the wormhole themselves. They know that they are still alive but that is all they know. The two galaxies have come together and the Sondians have infiltrated the governments enough to discredit the Dobrians.

This book throws us right into the turmoil of the team after two members have gone missing through the worm hole. The team is concerned about the retrieval of the team members and how they are going to do that. The way the other side of the wormhole/veil was written was amazing. I was able to visualize the environment that they were in and the potential dangers that faced them just based on the authors writing. This book also delves deeper into the who's and why's of how all the characters are i ...more

Third in the series.
In this installment Jesca has to cross the veil opened at the end of book 2. Her father (Ezra) and Nate are trapped there and she is determined to get them back and save everyone from the evil that has been released.
The love triangle becomes more intense as Xander goes with her to save Nate and Ezra. The planet/realm they end up in possesses its own unique challenges, can the save them???
Another action packed book with a cliffhanger ending
Tracy Riva
This book was fascinating. The ideas behind it were unique, but I was already acquainted with the the theory that says if you pass through a black hole you enter an alternate universe. I'd always found that idea engrossing and the way it is approached in Ascend makes all of it thoroughly believable.

The tension in the storyline is finely developed leaving you on the edge of your seat and dying to know what comes next. A solid, well-developed read.

This series only gets better!

I see and read these thoughtfully crafted words that tie in the unexplainable history and beliefs of the Native American peoples, and I am absolutely astounded by way it flows together. I am just a Native flute player. My flute sings the songs the way this author pens her words. I can not wait to begin the fourth book. She is probably one of the best writers I have ever read. Thank you Vanessa Kimball.

With every edition, this story gets better and better and once again I'm sitting at the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next.
the characters are all so complex and come to life right before your eyes.
The writing is vivid and the plot really move along and it's all terrific.
I find that anticipation anxiety is terrible waiting for the next installment,
Remember to read these books in order

The Copula Chronicles is a retelling of the Piercing the Fold series. Venessa decided to rewrite them for a more mature audience. The story is the same and just as engaging and exciting. Ascend is the continuing story of Jesca Gershon Sera, a young woman, who barely survived the near destruction of Earth and now must save her father and a man she loves. This is a great book for sci-fi fans as well as romance fans!

So much is going on in this book. Questions are answered, which leads to more questions...I don't want to talk to much about the story because I don't want to give any spoilers away. I'm really anxious to get to the last book and have everything come together and be wrapped up. Relationships are being tested and created and twisted and I need to know how this story ends.

WILL I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK? Yes!

The third book in the series and the tension is high! This book is more emotional than the first two. The relationships between the characters are more intense in my opinion. It lives up to the story and makes the reader run right into the last book to see how it all turns out. I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I received a ARC for an honest review. I'm not good at putting words together but all I can say that I'm speechless. I couldn't put the book down and yes it was a struggle to go back to reality. But let me tell you that as you read you feel what the characters are feeling and get to know them more that either You love them or hate them. It just feels soreal. Can't wait to start Legacy.

OUTSTANDING!! I never want to let this book go! I was consumed from beginning to end. Things are getting real in Ascend. It's filled with more action, lots more love triangle issues, anger, etc. Pretty much if you can feel it then it's happening in this book. Some characters you will abhor and others you will want to root for until the very end. Job very well done, Venessa!

This book is as action packed and intense as the first ones, and kept me on the edge of my seat and holding breathing to see what would happen next. I went through this book very quickly, and couldn't wait to see what happened next. The plot is unique, and keeps you guessing what will happen next.
