Astrid Llewelyn is now a fully trained unicorn hunter, but she can't solve all her problems with just a bow and arrow. Her boyfriend, Giovanni, has decided to leave Rome, the Cloisters is in dire financial straits, her best friend's powers seem to be mysteriously disintegrating, and Astrid can't help but feel that school, home, and her hopes of becoming a scientist are nothing but impossible dreams. So when she's given the opportunity to leave the Cloisters and put her skills to use as part of a scientific quest to discover the Remedy, Astrid leaps at the chance. Finally, she can have exactly what she wants-or can she? At Gordian headquarters, deep in the French countryside, Astrid begins to question everything she thought she believed: her love for Giovanni, her loyalty to the Cloisters, and-most of all-her duty as a hunter. Should Astrid be saving the world from killer unicorns, or saving the unicorns from the world?

While a little less heavy than Rampant, Ascendant is still a great read with compelling characters, emotional impact, and some beautiful moments. I applaud Diana Peterfreund for broaching the subject of mental handicap/brain damage, and for constantly challenging her readers to determine for themselves what is good, what is evil, and where the line between the two is. I look forward to reading more books in this series.

I agree with Books_Luv. The first book was great, but in this one, nothing happened that really seemed to advance the characters, and then the book just ended. There wasn't a clear sense of beginning-tense climax-denoument.

This book did not end like I had thought it would. I am kinda hoping for another book, cause I want to see how Astrid turns out...

Ascendant wasn't the greatest. I enjoyed the first book, Rampant, but this book just blew it. The killer unicorns was a good idea and interesting, but now, not so great.... :(
