My Review: I picked up Ascend a few days after I finished Torn. I needed this book so badly, I was hooked. Ascend certainly does not disappoint. I loved it just as much as I loved Torn, more probably because of the ending. Though, the final battle seemed like it was over too quickly, to me. But I enjoyed it none the less. There were heart breaking scenes and scenes that really did make me cry. I didn't want the series to end, but if it had too, this book was the icing on the cake.
