Taliesin Ascendant is a thrilling follow up to The Children and the Blood. It's one of those books you want to race through because you have to know what happens next, but you can't race through because the words are so lovely, you don't want to miss anything. Taliesin Ascendant picks up where The Children and the Blood left off. Ashe continues her quest to find the Merlins in order to fulfill her promise to Carter - telling the Merlins that the Blood do exist. However, finding the Merlins puts Ashe on a path she'd never expected. Cole and Lily try to keep moving in order to evade the Taliesins and the Bloods. Unfortunately, they happen upon a fringe family of Merlins. They are held against their will and while there, they have revelation upon revelation about each of their families and the history of the war between the Merlins and the Taliesins. The war between the Merlins and the Taliesins is escalating. But as these two groups fight for dominance and power, they have no idea there is another threat to them both - and it's stronger than they can imagine. Ashe, Cole and Lily all have integral roles in this war, and they aren't sure whom to trust. Seriously, I didn't know who to trust and as Ashe did, I misjudged a few people. Taliesin Ascendant is equally as pulse-pounding as The Children and the Blood. I felt there was fantastic character development combined with the spine-tingling suspense and action. Oh, all the intrigue! Megan Joel Peterson did a phenomenal job of keeping me in the dark about the direction of the plot. The new players introduced and the further questions which arose really created a pulse-pounding story that I was completely immersed in. This is such a brilliant story! There's action, tension, suspense, magic, intrigue, betrayal, mystery - and no romance. ;) (I know you're shocked but none so far) Megan Joel Peterson weaves all these elements together for a fascinating, adrenaline pumping story. I'm thrilled my wait for the next installment isn't long. For although some questions were answered, many more arose. And I am anxious to know what happens next!

Taliesin Ascendant Is the second book in The Children and The Blood YA trilogy. This book picks right up where the first book left off. The Children are still on the run and are hunting for answers as well as just trying to stay one step ahead of their enemies. This book sees more introduction of new characters and gives us more insight into the politics behind what happened with the kids and where they fit into the whole scheme of things. I really don't want to give too much away because I really love this series. The first book is an absolute gem and this book is a great follow up. It answers a lot of questions that were left hanging and gives the reader more insight into this unique world that Megan Joel Peterson has created. It's very much a modern day Escape From Witch Mountain with a heavy fantasy and urban fantasy element. What I love most about the series is that the author doesn't let the reader in on everything right up front. As the characters learn about themselves, you as the reader learn. Things unfold but you still know there's more to the story that you don't know. It's very unique writing and an absolute high speed, action packed adventure that you're traveling on with the main characters. Definitely worth the read!!!
