Ascension by A.S. Fenichel
Ascension is a highly entertaining historical romance with a marvelous paranormal twist.
In this world, demons exist and are trying to take over our historical world. Few know of their existence and fewer are willing to fight the war. Lady Belinda is just such a warrior but when her finance' returns from the war in France he doesn't know what to make of the new Lady Belinda.
Gabriel has survived war by focusing on his return and marrying Lady Belinda his social perfect finance'. What he finds when he returns leaves him quite bewildered and unsure of Belinda's faithfulness.
The chemistry between these characters is delightfully strong. Watching Gabriel's attempt to recapture his lost love was quite entertaining.
I really enjoyed Ascension. Right from the start I was glued to the pages but I did loose a little interest toward the end. The story is filled with strong, independent characters, a steamy romance and wonderful world building. If you enjoy historical paranormal romances, you will really enjoy Ascension.
I received this ARC copy of Ascension from Kensington Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication October 6, 2014.
