Book Review: Ascend - Amanda Hocking

Ascend
Wendy Everly is facing an impossible choice. The only way to save the Trylle from their deadliest enemy is by sacrificing herself.  If she doesn’t surrender to the Vittra, her people will be thrust into a brutal war against an unbeatable foe.  But how can Wendy leave all her friends behind…even if it’s the only way to save them?
The stakes have never been higher, because her kingdom isn’t the only thing she stands to lose. After falling for both Finn and Loki, she’s about to make the ultimate choice…who to love forever. One guy has finally proven to be the love of her life—and now all their lives might be coming to an end. 
Everything has been leading to this moment.  The future of her entire world rests in her hands—if she’s ready to fight for it.

4/5 stars (really liked it)
Wendy sure learns to kick some series butt!  Also love all the other characters in this story.  I was not too crazy about Willa and Matt at first but I've grown to like them both.  Same goes with Duncan, her tracker/bodyguard.  Also Loki reminds me a little bit of Jace (Mortal Instruments - Cassandra Clare), good looking bad boy.  The ending is great and I love who she ends up with and who the other characters end up with.  The extra story at the end was great because we got to see what happens 1.5 years later.
