Skypunch by C.L. Gaber is a paranormal book with fantasy, mystery and ghosts. This is the 2nd book in the series and I definitely recommend reading the first book as this one starts right where book one leaves off. In the last book Daniel and Walker broke the one rule that they really weren't supposed to break and now have to suffer the consequences. Neither of them regret it because Bobby is now in the right place with all his brothers and sisters. The new principal which I found hilarious is b ...more

I want to write this review with minimal spoilers for the first book as I really feel that Skypunch should not be a standalone book (although, it does offer a good intro to the past). But, in order to proceed, I have to reveal that in the last book, Walker and boyfriend Daniel, broke the one ultimate rule, they travelled back to the living realm. Skypunch picks up from here and the reader finds them preparing for yet ano

The brilliant adventure continues! You definitely want to read the first book first, as this sequel picks up right where it left off. I am completely awed by this series, and this second book is as good as the first one! With all new characters, the intrigue keeps rolling out and the complexity of all the characters is just stunning! The storyline is absolutely original and unique, the dialogue is full and rounded and the descriptions of everything is point on and flawless! I just can't get over ...more

There's not enough stars for this book!

Rarely, if ever, does the second book in a series come close to being as good as the first....But, this book! New characters are introduced, some twists you won't see coming and the epic storyline continues. I would put this series in my top three favorites ever. One-click it, you won't be disappointed.

CL Gaber keeps you on the edge with her excellent story telling. You will start to think that you know what is going to happen and then Bam.... Plot Twist!! This book will suck you in and not let you go until you have completed it. It will leave you wanting more and begging to know what happens next! I am worki

Ascenders SkyPunch is the second book in this really well written YA series. Walker and Daniel have barely made it back from their great adventure when things start in this book. They achieved their goal, lost an ally, gained an unlikely one with Cass - who can see ghosts and tells Walker he will see her again and seemingly does. What does this all mean?
The Reid family is all reunited now and things couldn't seem better. Until school assembly. In front of all to see Walker and Daniel are arreste

Title: Ascenders: Skypunch ( Ascenders Saga Book 2)
Author: C.L. Gaber
Stars: 5

Holy moly talk about amazing!!! I am very rarely impressed with 2nd book in a series, but this book totally impressed me. Again, C.L. Gaber had me entranced with her writing. Each scene was vivid in my mind, and every emotion was felt. Skypunch punched in me the afterlife realm and the new places & people that are revealed in this book.

Will they fulfill the challenge or back out?
This book continues with many of the characters we enjoyed in the first book, plus introduces some new characters als

Skypunch is book two in the Ascenders series by C.L Gaber. Ascenders is a young adult series about the adventures of a group of teens and their actions packed life alerter their death on earth. Book two gives more of a view from the darker side of the teen after life. With an inside look of the day to day life of life at ITT and an afterlife that isn't all flowers and sunshine which we found in the first book.Gaber made sure to expand on these little after life world she has created and I have t ...more

The second book in the Ascenders series, Skypunch by C L Gaber picks up straight where the previous story finished. Written in first person, once again we follow Walker’s story as she struggles to navigate the afterlife, having been killed as a teenage. If you read the first book, Skypunch is a must read. Although not normally a genre I would choose, I can safely say this series has my full interest and attention; I can’t get enough!

Daniel Reed is back, and swoon worthy! This is the 2nd book in the Assenders series, so make sure you read the first book prior to this one.
Both are fantastic reads! Unique story line, about a after life realm for the "living dead" so teenagers go here after death. This picks up where book one left off, and is full of suspence and romance. I was shocked at the twists and turns, the characters are so well writen you will want to meet them in real life!

I give Ascenders: Skypunch (Ascenders Saga, book 2) by C.L. Gaber, 5 stars.
This book may include spoilers of book 1.

Walker Callaghan is dead. She has adjusted to that. But after a trip to the living realm, a trip that is strictly forbidden and illegal, she finds herself in a whole new world. Their wonderful principal is gone, replaced by someone who seemingly hates kids and is only out for himself. His first order of business is to send Walker and Daniel to ITT, the equivalent of prison for bad

Ascenders: Skypunch (Ascenders Saga) Volume 2 by C.L. Gaber is the second story in the Ascenders Saga series. This story is a continuation of Walker and Daniel's story. If you loved the first story, you will love this one. Once again, you will love how the author has created a story that will grab your attention from the first page forward.

Ascenders: Skypunch (Ascenders Saga) (Volume 2) by C.L. Garber is book 2 in the Ascenders Series. I think it’s important to read book 1 first.
A quick note: There are several books that I’ve read in the past which I’ve believed to have been written by a pen name for a well-established author. This is one of those series. It’s so visually appealing and written in such a way that I could envision each character. Their face and body, movements and ticks. It’s hard to believe that this is only the t

Ascenders : Skypunch by C. L. Gaber is an absolutely amazing read and the 5 stars maximum that Amazon allows me to give it does not even begin to do it justice.

This is a fabulous Young Adult book but it can be enjoyed for everybody. Whether you're young or young at heart you will love indulging in this authors fantastical world. The plot is fast paced with many twist, turns and surprises. I adore books with heroines in them rather than the hero rescuing the damsel in distress and believe me whe

By C.L. Gaber
** 5 Stars **

SkyPunch by C.L. Gaber is the second book in the Ascenders series. SkyPunch stars where the first book ended. Even though SkyPunch gives an extensive recap in the beginning of the book to help you play catch up, I would recommend reading book 1 first. It can be quite confusing without the background of the first book.

Sometimes you have to break the rules in order to do what is right. Would you choose to do what is “right” even if the consequenc

Ascenders: Skypunch the second book in the Ascenders saga by C.L. Gaber was in one word... Thrilling. I Loved this book. I think that after all the nitty gritty details of the characters were out of the way, C. L. Gaber could make these characters SHINE! I was biting my nails after every page I turned wondering what could happen next! I liked how Walker's talents as a writer were used in the beginning of the book to tell the grueling story of the GF, I found it to be a creative way to give that ...more

this picks up where ascenders left off and is just as snarky, fun and adventurous as the first. My first thought Cass dude understand why you didn’t say anything but seriously that is all messed up and I think he will hurt Daniel and Walker and the mission at some point. Daniel love love him more. I do hope that him and Walker stay together and get a HEA for the dead. Please pretty please with a cherry on top. Walker just as snarky with her comebacks love the one when they are going to Freak Isl ...more

I have just finished the Ascenders: Skypunch (Ascenders Saga Book 2) and again, I will have to say that I am wowed and in awe!

The author starts by pulling you right in, from the very beginning in book 1 and all the way through this second one.

I’ve read many good books lately but the Ascenders books just keep me captivated beyond what I thought possible!

C.L. Gaber has gone and done it again for me!

The books are so descriptive and so alive - you will find it surprising that they aren’t buzzing

Ascenders: Skypunch is the second book in the Ascenders Saga. You MUST read book one first, this is not a standalone novel. There is good back story built in, but read book one first. It's incredible and you'll thank me for it!

I had the pleasure of meeting C L Gaber at the Leviosa convention in Vegas during the summer of 2016. She was so kind and gracious in her time with me and I was thrilled to purchase her books. Who doesn't love to support amazing artists? How little did I know, these books

Skypunch is the second book in C.L.Gaber’s Ascenders series and absolutely you should not read it before you have read the first book! You get a fairly good introduction into the story line but in no way it is good enough to really embrace the universe the author has created!
I jumped instantly into the second book when I finished the first book, it was late in the evening but I did not care! I was so wrapped up in this magnificent epic cinematic world that I could not wait to see what comes next

I am giving this book an enthusiastic five stars, only because I can’t go higher!!! I don’t often find a series where I enjoy the second or third books more than the first but that is the case with this saga. Where the first story laid the groundwork, Skypunch grabbed the plot and took off running with it. This book is one that I couldn’t put down from the very beginning. Every page brought a new twist or hurdle that the characters had to conquer. Just when I thought things were smoothing out, s ...more

Occasionally a book comes along that changes how you think about the world. Ascenders: Skypunch is that book for me. As the second book in the series, it had a lot to live up to and that it did and more. Often a sequel is a letdown compared to the previous book but in my opinion, this book was better. It delved into the human aspect of the story more, yeah, there was a deep plot and a lot of action but we got to learn more about the characters and what makes them wake up every day.
