REVIEW: Ascendancy (The Godswar Saga #1) by Jennifer Vale

Ascendancy (The Godswar Saga) (Volume 1) - Jennifer Vale

This is a typical fantasy novel that doesn't stand out in any way. It's solid enough, but relies too much on standard fantasy tropes (like elves and dragons) to be anything but mediocre.


In fact, the main feeling I had when reading this book was a continuing idea that the author had it in her to do better. There are some points where it seems to reach more lofty heights, only to come crashing down again a few pages later.


Final verdict:

Mediocre. I don't expect anyone reading this to have lasting impression, which is a shame really. I might give another of the author's books a try to see if it's a series only thing.
