Ascension, Clandestine, and Reclamation…a trifecta of suspense, romance, and intrigue for YA and adult readers.
“A trilogy so intense and intriguing readers will be turning pages well into the night …”
Summer reading is on everyone’s mind lately, quite possibly because after weeks of words like “quarantine,” “Shelter In Place,” and “social distancing,” we are all hungry for some sort of normalcy. Thankfully, whether we are at home or at the beach, the portability of e-books is just the ticket for those who love to read but also want to make sure they always have something spellbinding handy.
For YA and adult readers who love a suspense-filled-edge-of-your-seat fiction read with a unique and edgy twist, Audrey Press’ sister imprint, Aletha Press, has THREE such book titles that are now available in both physical and e-book form! The Ascension Trilogy has been a labor of love for this publishing house and for author Hannah Rials. Hannah was only 12 when the idea for Book One-Ascension came to her in a dream.
Fast forward a decade and Hannah (now an adult living in Bath, England) is now the proud owner of a THREE book series that has readers mesmerized in every corner of the globe.
Book One-Ascension by Hannah Rials
Author Rials was only 12-years-old when the storyline for Ascension came to her. After many years of learning, researching, and honing her writing craft, Rials released Book 1 in the three-book Ascension trilogy shortly after her 19th birthday. Ascension garnered rave reviews and went on to win a Royal Dragonfly Award (first place in young adult literature) and also the Benjamin Franklin Gold Award in New Voice: YA from the Independent Book Publishers Association.
Available on Kindle for only $1.99 for a limited time!
Book Two-Clandestine by Hannah Rials
As the much-anticipated second book in Rials’ Ascension trilogy, Clandestine smoothly picks up from the cliffhanger ending and continues to keep readers mesmerized by the unfolding challenges and danger of young “double-blooded” vampire, Cheyenne Lane.
At 17, Cheyenne finds herself the center of a centuries-old conspiracy involving the vampires, Deuxsang, and witches, and everyone is telling her who she should trust and what she should do. Her head is too full of voices and opinions, and it’s time for Cheyenne to make up her own mind.
“Gripping until the very end.” – Scott Reintgen, author of Nyxia
Available on Kindle for $1.99 for a limited time!
Book Three–Reclamation by Hannah Rials
Reclamation is the third book in the award-winning Ascension Trilogy and was released in February of 2020.
The situation is dire.
Teen vampire hybrid, Cheyenne Lane’s world is shattered as she discovers that she’s led her friends and family to the slaughter. With their blood on her hands, Cheyenne finds herself a captive to the most powerful vampire in the world, Lamia. Cheyenne knows time is running out and Lamia will do whatever it takes to make her future a reality, but she and her crew of witches and Deuxsang brethren aren’t going down without a fight.
No matter how powerful the enemy, Cheyenne will not allow the people she loves to be destroyed. She knows she’s not alone—Eli is ready to do whatever it takes to set Cheyenne free and end the vampires’ reign. When they are together, their powers can move the earth. But is that power strong enough to stop Lamia’s vision from coming true?
Everyone’s future is in the balance, and the only thing that’s certain is that Cheyenne and her crew of witches and Deuxsang aren’t going down without a fight.
Pro Tip: If the beach is not in your travel plans, stake your claim in a special spot in your backyard and dub it your Reading Sanctuary. Have-book-will-travel (even if it’s only from lawn chair!).
Happy Reading. Stay Well.
For the Kiddies…
What if you could “live” inside the pages of the children’s books your family reads? What if you could enjoy the same adventures as the characters? BookJumping is taking the solitary act of reading a book and transforming it into an event that can be shared with others. It’s the process of pulling books off shelves and stories off pages. It’s making kids’ books come ALIVE by “jumping” inside the pages.
The ABC’s of BookJumping: The Best of Jump Into a Book is a concept that lets parents, caregivers, homeschoolers, and educators use the books they have on their shelves to create moments of “learning by doing” and reading all rolled into one!
This robust literacy-based e-book contains over 150 hand-picked book reviews, unique book-inspired activities and recipes, book pilgrimages, facts about classic book authors that we all know and love, and many, many reasons to spend countless hours “unplugged” and revisiting classic stories.
Making reading an adventure for kids and not a “task/ chore/requirement” is a great way to help them increase the desire to learn and keep them interested as well. Setting aside time as a family and selecting a summer reading list is a great way to not only make the idea of reading more exciting but also to involve kids in voicing their thoughts and options on what it is that they would like to read.
Re-ignite your child’s love of reading and encourage screen-free family time today.
