While a little less heavy than Rampant, Ascendant is still a great read with compelling characters, emotional impact, and some beautiful moments. I applaud Diana Peterfreund for broaching the subject of mental handicap/brain damage, and for constantly challenging her readers to determine for themselves what is good, what is evil, and where the line between the two is. I look forward to reading more books in this series.

I agree with Books_Luv. The first book was great, but in this one, nothing happened that really seemed to advance the characters, and then the book just ended. There wasn't a clear sense of beginning-tense climax-denoument.

This book did not end like I had thought it would. I am kinda hoping for another book, cause I want to see how Astrid turns out...

Ascendant wasn't the greatest. I enjoyed the first book, Rampant, but this book just blew it. The killer unicorns was a good idea and interesting, but now, not so great.... :(
