I remember picking up Ascenders and reading the synopsis and it instantly gave me Twilight feel but oh how I was wrong! Ascenders is breath taking and brilliant! C.L. Gaber has a way of writing such emotional feels throughout her story where you feel like you are Walker and Daniel. I have laughed and bawled my eyes out as you grow with Walker and Daniel relationship. When I first read this book I could not put it down because of all the cliff hangers Gaber left us with. You will never have a dull moment with her writing and she will have you thinking of this book constantly and all the turns it has ahead. I highly recommend Ascenders and all of the next books in this series. C.L. Gaber has become one of my favorite authors this year and now an instant buy author!

Ascenders: High School for the Recently Departed (Ascenders Saga Book 1) By C.L. Gaber 5 Stars Ok so if this book doesn't get you thinking then I don't know but this was a really cool book. You have to open your mind, kinda like reading the Harry Potter series. This is my first by the author but won't be my last. I can't wait to read the rest of this series! “Did you know that the human brain doesn't fully form until you're 24-years-old?” Walker wakes up and finds that her and her Mother have moved, she has no memory of this move and doesn't understand how they could have this great house and all these new things when they struggled for money every day of their lives. She starts her new school, The Academy and finds things quite a bit different. There are no rules, no tests, no homework, and no consequences. It doesn't take long for Walker to realize that at 17 years old she has died. She is in a middle realm, an in between zone where in a lot of ways things are the same, yet so very different. She meets Daniel on her first day, he is gorgeous, reserved, and she can't help but be pulled towards him. As they spend some time together she learns that Daniel is planning something, he is going to break the one and only rule and that is to return to the living world to find his baby brother that died along with him and his other siblings and for some reason never made it to The Academy. Walker has fallen in love with Daniel and decides she will help him with all his research on how to do it and will go with him. Can they learn everything it's going to take to make this work? Can they overcome the forces that try to stop them from getting back safely? Will they find Daniel's little brother in time? This author has quite an imagination!! References to those we have lost that come to The Academy to teach are amazing, they actually made me smile and think wow that was well played lol. I can not wait to see where this story goes from here, I'm not normally a fan on YA Paranormal, but this grabbed me and won't let go. Read it you won't be sorry.
