The Lost Book of Ascension
by Dirk Strasser
Can you see the story breathing?
What happens if after the winter solstice, the days keep getting shorter?
Until there is an eternal night?
What happens as the darkness grows?
And the creatures of dusk take control of the Mountain?
And the quest for the third Book is the only hope?
The Mountain is in its death throes as the Nazir send their wraiths to finish what the dusk-rats and grale had begun. Soon there will be no daylight to protect the Maelir and Faemir, and with each twilight there are fewer places to hide. Will the Mountain finally collapse under its own instability or will Atreu and Verlinden's descent find the words of salvation in the Lost Book of Ascension?
An epic ending to an epic fantasy trilogy! Dirk Strasser gave an amazing ending to his series with Eclipse. Looking back on the first two books in the series, I feel like I was right alongside Atreu during his journey. His character arc made for an engaging reading experience. The pacing of this final book was effortless and showcased Strasser's skill as a fantasy writer.
The play on Atreu's trek down the mountain as opposed to his trek up is incredible. I felt like the story came full circle with this ending. It was exactly what I was hoping and waiting for. After reading this trilogy, I've found myself digging through my TBR pile in search of more fantasy reads. These books have shown me why I appreciate and love fantasy so much.
All of the parts of this trilogy blend so effortlessly. And this final book is the perfect culmination. This series is one that fantasy fans will adore and fly through. If you haven't discovered Dirk Strasser's The Books of Ascension series, do yourself a favor and pick them up. You'll not be disappointed.
