"The Affiliate is a lush world of myth, prophecy, and politics, filled with sexy kings and princes, a scheming court, and a thousand years of mystery. I couldn't put it down!" --Bethany Hagen, author of Landry Park
"The Affiliate is...so unique. I’ve simply not read anything like it." --Donna from Book Passion for Life
On the day of her Presenting, in front of the entire Byern Court, seventeen-year-old Cyrene Strohm's lifelong plans come to fruition when she's chosen for one of the most prestigious positions in her homeland—an Affiliate to the Queen.
Or so she thinks.
When Cyrene receives a mysterious letter and an unreadable book, she finds nothing is as it seems. Thrust into a world of dangerous political intrigue and deadly magic, Cyrene's position only grows more treacherous when she finds herself drawn to the one man she can never have...
King Edric himself.
Cyrene must decide if love is truly worth the price of freedom. Find out in this first book in USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s new Ascension series. Great for fans of Games of Thrones, Tudors, and Sarah J. Maas's Throne of Glass series.
Absolutely am in love with this series! Can't wait for book 2!
Left a lot to be desired.
Unfortunately, the storyline really wasn’t fleshed out. The novel skims the major points you’d expect of a fantasy novel, but with very little detail/dialogue. Further, the author went into very little detail when going over each character’s background. The characters seem to have no real motivations for anything they do. I really wanted to like this book, but I couldn’t fully immerse myself in it.
