The Ascension (The Wordwick Games, #2)by Kailin Gow
"As usual Kailin Gow rocks out the YA genre with her work. I absolutely adore her books and think she's one to watch. This book, of course, was great! I love the world building that she did...For me, it's always just right. The characters in this one were great and I loved the storyline. Here's a sneaky little thing that Kailin did with the book...she made it educational. *shhh Don't tell anyone!* LOL! In it you learn a lot of new words along with definitions but it's combined so well into the story that you don't really think about the fact that you're learning. It was awesome! Besides all that though, it really was just an excellent story...I always manage to get lost in her writing and I'm through the books before I even realize it. If you haven't checked her out yet then I think you should." --Kris, Cajun Book Lady

Truly original! One of the first books I've read where a group of teenage gamers enter a world where words of commodity. There are dragons, trolls, fey, and wizards.
Kailin Gow's epic fantasy where gamers enter into the world of words, magic, and the fey is original. She is prolific as one of fiction's fey author with this series, The Bitter Frost Series, and the Steampunk Scarlett Series.
I have read this book abouy 5 times. Each time I am remonded of the eloquenc thst Kailin Gow uses. She is truely an artist of words. I suggest you buy his book after reading the first one, The Rise of the Fire Tamer. You will get sucked into the wonderful new world that Gem has to go to. Filled with werewolves, princes, icy queens, and magic, The Ascension will leave you wishing that you could use ruler words.
