Ascendant is a delightful read for when you want to just lay back and relax with a book in hand.

First of all, the characters are well developed and don’t just stumble into stereotypes of most up-and-coming war hero stories. The angels are very human in their outlooks and actions, not the high and mighty beings one might be used to seeing them as, which makes this for an interesting world, one which hints at other races and plots for a future series.

Grace, as the main narr

One of my favorite books on this planet! It is difficult to leave a spoiler-free review as I would love to go over all of the amazing parts of this book but I did that, we'd be here forever. So in short, Ascendant is a great story with an immersive world, memorable characters and a plot that hits the ground running. It's a book that I plan on reading many times!
Miss Grey is an amazing writer and I look forward to the possibility of future books.
Thank you for publishing Ascendant - it's one of the gre

Going into this story, I already knew it was in my usual reading wheel-house. I’m always a sucker for fantasy stories, especially ones with complex conflict. This story was absolutely no exception.
I’ll admit that I became a touch worried at some points, having noticed some of the tell-tale signs of upcoming cliches that, while I always enjoy, I’ve seen written poorly too many times. Kimberly Grey pleasantly surprised me, however. Not only did Grey execute some of my beloved cliches, but they al

I was given a copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I was excited, then wary, then excited to read this book. I'm always a big fan of "the enemy isn't who you think" stories and this one looked to be decent. When I read a bit more and discovered that the book was labeled as "Christian" in some sources, I was a bit more wary. I've been burned by thinly-veiled proselytizing calling themselves faith-based books before and a story about angels seemed to be very on the nose
This is a really good book. The characterization of Grace is really good. It could do with another round of beta reading and some professional copy editing though. It has the potential to be a 5 star read!

Exceptional book from a new author - Leaves me eager to read more from her. This book is about guardian angels - and their struggle for control. Grace is soon questioning her beliefs about the basics she has grown up with. The tension and battle scenes are gripping, and Ms Grey's descriptions of feelings and moods put you right there in the story.
