The innocent never waver from doing what’s right, even if it means drowning the world in fire.
Violina had been burned and betrayed by mankind ever since she had sprung into existence. They named her a heretic and condemned her to a pit to live and die in agony. Though she sat stranded, starved and bloodied, she would not submit. Violina, the girl who had been mocked and hunted for rejecting the warped ideals of artificial authority, would lay down her own law.
Inevitable Ascension — A rapid-fire action/adventure novel packed with wit, humor and a host of twists that will literally make your brain explode! Actually, not literally. Otherwise that would be really gross.
I’ve found Indie Authors fall into two categories; the premise of their book is interesting, but it is so poorly edited that I don’t want to recommend it, or it is such a good story (and edited well) that I want everyone to read it.
Thankfully, Inevitable Ascension falls into the second category.
I am over the post-apocalyptic genre, unless it’s Mad Max (which is/was awesome), so when I received the review request I was not super excited. I put it on my calendar, and forgot about it. I was reviewing the calendar a couple of weeks later, and saw the review date was coming up, so I made myself some tea, and sat down to what I was thinking would be a ho-hum afternoon. But the book starts with a heist, and I do love me a good heist. So I quickly got drawn in. Four hours later, I was amazed at the book I had just read.
There is so many layers to this book; Post Apocalyptic, Sci-Fi, Time Travel, and Biblical Themes. Normally if I saw those four genres together in a synopsis, I would think, which one of these is not like the other, but the Biblical Themes tied in perfectly with the story, and made giddy to have another interpretation of how the Bible could have come about. But don’t let that scare you off, this book is not preachy about God at all, it just gives you a different way to think about religion.
In the email I was sent, asking if I would like to review it, I was told V.K. McAllister is a husband/wife duo with a unique approach to writing. We work simultaneously and in secret before combining what we come up with, resulting in dramatic and unexpected twists!
This is honestly why I agreed to read/review it, to see how well this would work. And it works very well. It’s seamless, I can’t tell one person’s writing from the others. So that’s just another cool factor to this story.
I highly recommend this action packed book, and will not hesitate to read their next book, if they should write one.
