    A mesmerizing conclusion to the most epic Fantasy Series EVER!!!

    While I am not an avid reader of the Fantasy genre, K.A. Linde has turned me into one with the Ascension series over the past few years. With each new book comes more adventure, discovery and exhilaration for Cyrene and her friends. Since 2015, every fall has become one I anticipate the arrival of the next chapter in Cyrene’s story, and every fall I fall in love with this series all over again. As I rediscover the passion I have for this voyage some of my favorite characters ever written continue, I am again filled with so much anticipation and nervousness, angst and discovery, as I watch their stories continue to be unfolded. This series has done something to me as a reader and I won’t ever come back from it. This series has taught me how to envision everything the author describes and bring it all together in the clearest visuals in my mind I have ever seen. It brought out feelings within me that I never knew were put there to feel for words on paper. With every new chapter, in each book of this series, I have been given passageway into the mind of one of my favorite authors I have ever discovered.

    There is not much that can be said about the details of this book without giving it all away, but this conclusion is EVERYTHING I wanted it to be. It tied the entire saga up and gave me more than I ever bargained for. Cyrene has become such a strong leader, and with her friends who are more like her family now, by her side, she is unstoppable! Her drive and spunk in this final book were truly something to behold. As we follow her to her ultimate end game, we discover so much about all the characters we’ve come to love over the past 5 years. To say an author utterly delivered on the finale, is something I say about Kyla over and over again. But this series, she knocked it out of the park and all the way into another world! Bravo on the best ending to a series I’ve ever had the honor of discovering.

    This is the final book in the Ascension series by K.A. Linde and what an incredible journey she has taken us on since we met Cyrene in The Affiliate. This was a bittersweet read for me because I have been waiting rather impatiently for this book but at the same time, I was just so unprepared for it all to come to an end. I was not ready to say goodbye to the amazing and complex characters this author gave us or to the sometimes cruel but also beautiful world she pulled us into between the pages. This series is one of those diamonds in the rough and I loved every book just as much as the one before. What an amazing end to by far one of my favorite series ever.

    “That’s what you have to find out, isn’t it? If you’re truly ready to not just lead but to rule?”

    The Domina picked up right where The Society left us off, Cyrene’s world is still at war and the Goddess of Darkness is stopping at nothing to destroy the lands and all the magic users within it. But what Malysa sets out to destroy, Cyrene is determined to save. After all it is her destiny, she is the chosen one but is enough to save her world?

    “The Heir of Light meeting the Heir of Darkness on the battlefield.”

    So much happened in this book and the action and suspense just kept coming. Alliances were made and broken. Love and loyalty were put to the test and there were several times the author threw in twists and turns that I just did not see coming. I laughed and swooned and cheered on characters while hoping others would fail. I had become so invested in so many of these characters throughout this journey that I was celebrating their victories along with them and mourning the loss of some friends along the way. The author did an amazing job connecting you to these amazing characters.

    “You are the reason for it all. You were my starlight in a dark world. My beacon home.”

    I loved how brave and determined Cyrene was as she continued to work to fulfill her destiny and how she embraced who she truly was. I loved Dean and his love and devotion to her. I loved Avoca and Rhea and Sarielle and Ahlvie and the bonds they all shared and how they all fought and sacrificed for a better world. A world without darkness. There were just so many characters I grew to love along with several I hated throughout this journey. I had a love/hate relationship with Kael and wanted him and Cyrene to be together at times, but it ended for him the way it was meant to as it did for so many others.

    “One by one, they swore allegiance to her. One by one…they chose her.”

    Domina was a brilliant end to an amazing series and if you’re in the mood for a fantasy series you definitely don’t want to pass this one by. I can’t wait to read House of Dragons!

    “This ends where it all began.”

Linde's background in politics comes through in this story in a unique way that while there is nothing political about the book, everything is political. The Domina and the entire Ascension series is an intricate tapestry of deceit, faith and love.

    Even if you are not a fantasy genre reader, you should most definitely delve into this series. I'm certain you would find yourself a blossoming love of these fantastical characters and their journey.

    And now we face the final moments of K A Linde’s sweeping fantasy series, Ascension.

    Over the previous four books, we followed Cyrene as she struggled to save her world, her friends, her family, and herself. While I anxiously awaited this last installment, I also didn’t want to read it because it meant saying goodbye to Cyrene and Kael and other characters I’ve come to adore. (Not that K A Linde didn’t make me say goodbye to favorites before now, as is her wont to do.)

    And now we face the final moments of K A Linde’s sweeping fantasy series, Ascension.

(Not that K A Linde didn’t make me say goodbye to favorites before now, as is her wont to do.)

    A LOT happens in this book. Some scenes make you feel as if you’re going to break apart with anxiety, and others make you feel as if you’re going to squee with joy. The romance is, as you’d expect, difficult because K A Linde makes NOTHING easy for her characters, even ones who have suffered as Cyrene has.

    I don’t–I can’t–say a whole lot because I don’t want to spoil anything. I’m also still processing that I turned the last page on this series, and I’m not sure I was ready to do that. It’s bittersweet. On the one hand, it’s time, but on the other, I need more.

    Please let me know what you think of the Ascension series and this wonderful conclusion. I’m not typically a fantasy fan, but I was hooked.

    Wow! This book was the final book in the series and it did not disappoint! Cyrene has finally come into her own with her magic and now she must defeat the goddess of destruction, Malysa. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. This book will give you all the feels, happy, sad, anger, frustration, joy. This book was just the best!

    I have been waiting on this book and did not disappoint. The Ascension series is the first fantasy series I have read and really enjoyed. K.A. Linde has a way with words and telling a story. The conclusion to this phenomenal series was worth the wait.

    The Domina wrapped everything up from the very beginning. Cyrene has come a far way since we first met her. I loved picking up this book and diving back into Cyrene’s story and seeing all the characters again.

    So much happens in this book and I don’t want to give anything away. If you haven’t started this series yet you need to! Fantasy was never a genre I would pick up but I couldn’t put these books down once I started. Must read series.

    This book was all that and more. So so worth the wait for it. KA Linde wraps up this battle against the darkness of Malysia wonderfully and yet leaves a door open for us to see more of these characters in other books.

    This book was all that and more. So so worth the wait for it. KA Linde wraps up this battle against the darkness of Malysia wonderfully and yet leaves a door open for us to see more of these characters in other books.

    The story picks up where the Society left us and it is just as dangerous for Dean, Cyrene and her allies as it was before. Cyrene is going on a journey that is beyond what I thought would occur. How she gained the insight and power to fight Malysia is seen her as is her diplomacy and desire to stop the hate, anger, vengeance and killing as we see at the end. She realizes that killng someone because of what they did doesn’t make them any better than Malysia. Her story into who Vera is and how this all came about was so well written and intertwined into the crux of the battle that you just suck it up like a thirsty horse at water in a desert. We watch Cyrene show mercy, love and loyalty to her friends and the people she is fighting for and see her grow in her powers and in her capacity to love and as a person. She realizes where she belongs and who she wants along side her. She finds her calling in a different way than she thought it was. Watching her go find allies with Dean by her side was intriguing but how she interacted with others and her strategies and how her mind worked was fascinating.

    Dean has gone through so much to be by Cyrene’s side you just love the man. MOre so in this book as she shows Cyrene she is not alone and he is there for her in whatever capacity she needs but especially to protect her as she goes to battle with Malysia. His love for Cyrene shines through in everything he does. He is so calming and amazing. His trust, support, and love for Cyrene knows no bounds and it is beautiful to see especially with all he has gone through. Watching them fight side by side is beautiful and these two belong together and belong by one another’s side to support, love and be there for one another in the next adventure they are sure to go on.

    ahlvie loved watching his struggle. How he drew from Cyrene’s strength to overcome his fear and help turn the tides. Watching everyone band together to fight for each otehr no matter their differences was wonderful to see. We see people fighting for a better world and a better tomorrow. We see differences be set aside for a common goal We see battles within fought and won and we see the attles on the outside bring people closer. We watch Cyrene journey to find her way and find a way to bring an end to the darkness in her world.

    KA linde has topped herself in her writing prose and style. She brings us beyond this world and into others with great world building and interlinks the worlds so seamlessly. She has a storyline that draws you into the fold and just has you on the edge of your seat as you root for Cyrene and Dean but also you hope that those that are under the thrall of Malysia are set free and get a chance to live again. To be free of the hold she had on them and find a lightness within and get a new leash on life. You cannot put down this book for you are in the fight with these characters and cannot let go. Ms. Linde was written a world that you become a part of and cannot leave until the last page not wanting to leave the world until you know those you are rooting for and fighting for are okay and their world is safe. A amazing ending to a wonderful series and a story to last through the ages and books to pass down to others to read and enjoy.

    The Domina is the conclusion to the Ascension series. K.A. Linde has been writing this series for 7 years and reading the books, we can see how she matured as a writer.

    I liked some books more than others and this conclusion was the culmination of everything that happened since the first book. The story changed a lot throughout the seven books and overall I liked those changes. Some of them were too different though, almost like there were different stories and plotines going on. But in the end it all worked.

    I do feel like it took a lot of time (and books) for this conclusion and I had forgotten a few things mentioned in the most recent books and had to come back to the previous ones.

    In The Domina we can see how much Cyrene, our heroine, has grown and matured. But I missed the connection I felt with her in the most earlier books. I couldn't relate to her as much as I did in the past, but maybe it's because I had to revisit the other books to understand some things.

    I missed a bit more about Cyrene and Dean in the end of the story. I would have liked a bit more of it. Specially after everything they've been through.

    I feel that K.A. Linde did a good job with this series and it was sad to see some of these characters go. I would have minded a bit more of some of them.
