THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
I found The Ascension to be wonderful fantasy of magic, family and friends. I could not imagine living through what this set of triplets have; discovering they’ve had siblings their entire life, only to meet then at fifteen. Then it becomes unbelievable!
It was slow to start but after sticking with it; I found I loved the suspense and action. Overall a strong 3 Boundless Stars.
