Ascenders: Skypunch
CL Gaber
April 19, 2016

"Supernatural angst like you've never seen it before." -

C.L. Gaber continues the epic story of Walker Callaghan, afterlife's avenging angel.

In the Midst—a place for those who die young—there are no rules except one.

And Walker Callaghan, dead at seventeen, just broke it. She briefly revisited her earthly life . . . and the punishment is devastating.

Longing for her rebel love interest, Daniel Reid, Walker finds an ally in Cass, whose attraction to her is as alive as he is. “Life is short,” he tells her. “I’m banking on eternity. With you.”

In the second book of the Ascenders Saga, a proposed realm-jumping journey will take Walker and Daniel back to life again to search for something buried in history. They team with students from several other schools in the middle realm including a place for teens born with oddities. It’s home to the Claires . . . beautiful, ruthless, and quite dead seventeen-year-old quads who each have a different clairvoyant gift.

Can Walker survive another adventure of an afterlife-time—or will she find herself on the downside of eternity?

It’s very rare that I like a sequel to a book better than the first. I fell in love with Walker and Daniel in the first book, and I fell in love even harder in the second. What a great world Gaber has created. There is so much more to the Midst than we knew of in the first story. The twists and surprises will leave you reeling.  I have to say this book is a little darker. There was definitely a lot more at stake for both Walker and Daniel this time around.  As much as I hated what was happening to them, I absolutely loved this story. The characters feel like your own friends. You are rooting for them and wishing for their enemies demise. So much happens in this story, but it also is a huge build-up for what’s to come in book three. Lots of new characters are introduced, both good and bad. We also continue to get little gems in the form of deceased celebrities. Once I was back in their world I couldn’t put this book down. I feel like I was holding my breath during most of it. Every turn of the page meant more potential danger. The true mark of a great story is wanting to dive into the next book, which is what I did immediately after finishing. 5 stars! Enjoy!
