The Ascended is the final installment of The Saving Angels Trilogy. With Krista's life in turmoil, she is now struggling with the responsibilities that have been passed down to her. With the help of Haniel and her friends, Krista risks everything, including her soul, to march into the den of the Dark Angel. Their only chance for survival is for Krista to find the courage to accept the new role that fate has bestowed upon her, even if it means losing her loved ones forever.
I was finally able to finish the Saving Angel Trilogy by Tiffany King and let me just say I absolutely LOVED it. I however want more and if you did too, be sure to check out Jordyn, it’s a new series that has the characters for this trilogy and you are going to LOVE it. Our review for Jordyn will be up tomorrow! So to recap, we left of with some pretty nasty things going down in the Forgotten Souls, stuff that had me crying and left me with loads of questions.
*SPOILER* Stop here if you haven't read this book two yet.
At the end of the Forgotten Souls, Krista and Mark are torn apart. Is it because Mark joined forces with his father causing him to become a forgotten soul? Was it because Krista failed to protect him? Or was it because Victor out smarted Krista? Trust me when I say you’ll find out exactly what happened, but not until later on. Unlike the other two books, this one is fast paced and I loved it. I loved how the band came together to try and help Krista. Losing the one person you are created for, the one person you love above yourself is no easy task to deal with, but Krista manages, somewhat. Mostly with the help of her friends and Haniel.
“His very essence sparkled like a diamond and the pure joy radiating off him was overwhelmingly contagious.”
I love the way Tiffany King writes. She’s able to express such emotion through her words that are both magnificent and awe inspiring. I hope to be able to write like that one day. I like Haniel a little more in this book. Tiffany allowed us to get a deeper insight into him through his bond with Krista. Haniel trust Krista, sees something in her that reminds him of someone else. The quote above is Krista describing something about Haniel. For him being an Archangel, in this moment he is completely human. He’s feeling emotions like a human would, which brings him more in to the realm of humanity than otherworldly and I had more respect for him this way. Hell bent on keeping hope, which is one of her virtues, spurs the ban together with the help of the other band members and Haniel into going after Victor.
It’s no longer just an experiment with him and the other guides and protectors, it’s now affecting humanity and the light cannot sit by any longer. So what do they do and how does Krista fit into this? Well let’s just say Krista’s abilities are now more than what she was as a guide. She can still filter emotions, but at a much more rapid pace as the others. Among other “gifts” as they are called, which comes with her new territory. What that territory is, you’re going to have to read to find out.
So what happened to Mark? Is he fighting alongside his father becoming one of these forgotten souls or is it something more? What about the two members of the band that we have yet to meet, how do they fit into this and who exactly is related to whom? All questions that get answered. Though with all the ones I had answered I still feel like I’m missing some answers, but maybe that’s the way it was intended, maybe the questions will get answered in the new spin off series? Either way this book was an awesome ending to an amazing series and I cannot wait to see where the spin off goes from here.
I was on my toes the entire time with this book. In Forgotten Souls we watched Mark walk away from the group and from Krista. I was LIKE NO WAY NO WAY!!!!!!!! I quickly messaged Tiffany and asked what was happening. She told me to pick up this book and go. So I did. I started reading very fast because I wanted to get to the Mark part. I wanted to find out WHAT THE HECK! Why did he do it?? Are they broken up? NOOOOO Krista can not ... NOT have someone. My mind rebelled.
Haniel has allowed Krista to lead a search for Mark. Haniel usually follows what "The Light" Tells him. And now he is training Krista with her new powers. She has become stronger and there are new things that she can do. There is not much to say without spoiling.... but the group goes camping and on a trip to find Mark. The place where Victor Mr. Dark angel has him is EEEEERIE. Also...... Do you think Mark REALLY went bad?
I love how Tiffany resolved this book! It's amazing! And...... I got warm fuzzies too! I love them all. And even Funny Haniel, get something special added it.
Go get this and press through! You will be so happy you did!
