A compelling tale of love, lies, friendship and secrecy set against a well-researched and believable near-future setting * Bookbag *
A perfect read * Becca Fowell *
A consumable, compulsive read * The Queens of Geekdom *
I inhaled this practically in one sitting - it definitely keeps you reading to find out what happens and I am now eagerly awaiting the second and third parts of this trilogy! * Chrikaru Blog *
This book is both epic genius and completely bonkers! * Books and Lemonsquash *
This book gave me the same kind of feeling as The Hunger Games did when I first read it, both because of the aspect of young people trying to outwit themselves in a ruthless competition and for the fact I couldn't tear myself away from it once I started reading * Cosy Reading Nest *
Ascension by Victor Dixen is an exciting and invigorating young adult read that can now finally be enjoyed by an English-speaking audience. Readers will love how the author has included an extremely realistic reality television setting into a dramatic science fiction story filled with all the emotion and manipulation you would expect from the trashiest of dating shows out there. This crazy and brilliant read should captivate the young adult audience of the English-speaking world, just like it did with its French-speaking audience, and I will be keeping an eye out for the next two parts of this series * The Unseen Library *
I absolutely can't wait for the next book, Distortion, which is out in October (as I said, I've literally dusted off my French to get started early!). If you're in the mood for something fun, or thrilling, or secret-y, or with fantastic characters, then definitely pick this up! It's a five star from me! * A Cat, A Book, A Cup of Tea *
I don't remember many other books exceeding my expectations in such a glorious way. This book has stolen my heart and I'm not sure how I will cope until I can get my hands on the second book in the trilogy * Silvia Reads *
I was blown away by this, I honestly don't know what I was expecting but this certainly was far above anything I could assume * Phoenix Faie *
Oh! the ending, what a twist, such a cliffhanger. My advice.. Get it, read it, you won't be disappointed * Reading Zone *
