Third and final book in the Trylle Trilogy.

With a war looming on the horizon, Wendy’s fate seems sealed.

But everything she sacrificed might be in vain if she can’t save the ones she loves.

Her whole life has been leading up to this, and it’s all coming to an end.


My Thoughts
This is so going to contain spoilers, if you have NOT read this book, DO NOT CONTINUE! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!


SPOILERS AHEAD




Okay I loved this series, and I was really super excited for this book. It was really a good book. I read it really fast and couldn't put it down. But now that I have got to the ending and I am so irritated I can not remember what the book was about. 


Why am I irritated?? Well for one did I not tell you that I loved Finn, yes I did! And he some how became a back character and was shooed out of the story. When Finn comes to her in this book she is still in love with him she is about to have sex with him when she backs out saying she can't do it since its only going to be this one night they can be together. Well now lets move ahead a few chapters and she is married to Tove and decides to have sex with Loki telling him they can only have this one night together and that is perfectly fine. I just did not think that her and Loki's relationship had been built up enough for that to happen. (and I know she was married and it was mean but her and Tove never even loved each other) I think he was just kind of brought in there too fast. We knew that Loki and Wendy liked each other but that was all. I just thought it was way too soon. Maybe had they of built them up together more gave me more reasons to see their connection I could have been fine with it I just wasn't.


And see now from this I am totally blinded by the other parts of the story. Girls who can go from loving one person to loving another so fast bother me. Especially because I didn't really get a chance to see how. 


Other then that I think Wendy was on her way to being a great Queen. I am glad we got to see her mom open up more. I don't think we seen much of Rhys at all. So yes it was a good book if you can handle the love triangle, which I could not!!

  2. OKay so i got why wendy ended up with yoki and i was pretty happy about it. Yoki was everything Finn wasn't. Finn took his duties almost too far, and was fine with Wendy marrying Tove even though he knew she wouldn't be happy. Finn would take one step forward two steps back: dance with Wendy insult her, kiss Wendy ignore her, and generally be a jerk half the time. Yoki advised her not to marry someone she didn't love, wanted to run off with her, and was pretty forward about his feeling for her. He was also a flirt so Wendy could sleep with him without repercussions unlike with Finn, who would undoubtedly then turn into a jerk who'd run away and ignore her. What killed me was when she married Tove because I think it's pretty obvious his character is gay. Gays are stereotyped as being more feminine and trylle woman are supposed to be more gifted than men, yet Tove is extremely gifted. Plus he never shows romantic interest in any female character, and is incredible awkward at kissing Wendy or anything romantic with her, and he was only too happy to annul the marriage. But that's just my opinion. I was generally pleased with the way the book ended and it was the first trilogy I read where you really saw the dramatic growth in at least Wendy and Finn's characters, although sad it pulled them apart it was still interesting.

    2. You guys REALLY don't get that she can't, can you? Do you even understand the series? Have you even read the whole book(s)? SHE CANNOT DISPLAY ANY RELATIONSHIP OR CONTINUE ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY WITH HIM BECAUSE THEY WILL BOTH BE BANISHED FROM TRYLLE AND POSSIBLY EXECUTED. She may have been Princess when they both were in love, but she does not have say in a lot of things, especially when she has to keep her ego up.

    3. I completely agree i mean come on people as much as i want Finn to be with Wendy its just not even possible.And as much as i love Finn and Wendy they cant be together and if you read the books like phoebe said you should know if they stay together they will be banned and we know if they would stay together she would eventually get pregnant and that would break the blood line. plus WENDY HAS RESPONSIBILITIES NOW.She has no choice but to let Finn go.

  6. Yes I agree!!.. I am so disappointed with the ending..like you said there was no build up with the relationship between Loki and Wendy..Finn and Wendy had chemistry from the very beginning and all that build up was kind of for nothing in the end which is sad.. I think what Finn had was selfless love and he only wanted what was best for Wendy, he put her life before his own needs and wants and I think that is romantic..yes, he should have fought more and maybe that should have been the alternate ending..extending the series for that fight, instead of just dropping it and going for the 'shock'/easy option of Loki..It didn't even make sense why or how she could have fallen so in love with him so fast?..I loved the books but I was so disappointed with the ending..Team Finn for the win! (If it turns into a movie Finn should get the girl in the end!!! now that would make a happily ever after)

  7. does she end up with loki??? that is the best thing ever... I mean he was so sweet to her in 'Torn' and they really deserve each other

  8. There was only one team loki comment in all the comments which is really good cos I loved Finn! I really wish they'd ended up together and besides the fact that Oliver sounds like the cutest baby EVER I was quite disappointed in the ending. I mean Finn was in all three books and Wendy was in love with him since the beginning and Loki appeared the in the first book and she only appeared to find him attractive until like halfway toward the last book! There all consuming love happened way too quickly compared to Wendy and Finn's. Although I loved the books and finished Ascend in two days, I will always be a Team Finn fan. I wonder is this what it feels like to be a Team Jacob fan?

  9. I'm quite fond of Finn and his love for Wendy, but they don't belong together. They would both definitely be banished from Trylle and possibly executed.

  10. omg, i so love the ending, always been set for LOki, glad the writer did so!!!!Loki didnt hesitate in fighting his love for wendy, finn just let it slide so whats the thrill in that?No guts No glory eh?

  11. Tbh, I'm one hundred percent Team Loki, but no matter.

    The book was amazing. Appropriately fast paced, and with just enough romance to keep me hooked. Admittedly, the whole Loki-and-Wendy thing could have used a lot more development, and the final battle was plain disappointing, but other than that, it was awesome. Highly recommended.

  12. Am i the only one thats hated finn since the beginning? I mean really? He could be sweet and all but he was mostly a dick.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Team Loki all the way!!!!! I Love him! He is soooooooooo sweet! As for Finn, he was nice at the beginning but he wasn't for Wendy. I'm happy that he is with Mia though. Rhys and Rhiannon are ADORABLE together and I hope that Tove and Bain get together. Tove deserves to be happy. Matt really changed Willa, and for the better too. I was on the verge of tears when Oren stabbed Loki! Happy endings make my day. :D

  16. Omw I haven't read the last book yet, but I have loved the first two. I can't decide between Loki and Finn but I think I will beable to choose once I've read all 3 books :D :p

  17. Ok I've read all 3 books twice and so in vote of team Loki! Finn is a dick, by hurting Wendy so often!

  18. I loved the ending.Although in the beginning i wanted her to be with Finn, eventually i realized that they werent meant to be.

  19. I absolutely loved these books and in a sense I'm glad it didnt work lit with Finn because it showed that even though you think you love someone it doesnt always go to plan. Loki is my fave he's been through hell and is just sassy. Sometimes I think Finn and tove would jave been cool but it just reminds me of the mortal Instruments. Amazing books fast paced and very intriguing!

  20. Well....Finn had his reasons for treating Wendy like he did in torn. He told her to stay and rule her people unlike Loki who offered to runaway. I was obsessed with their relationship ever since the first book and it hit me really hard in ascend. i wont say i hate loki or anything- he was the perfect badboy but Finn and Wendy were the perfect match for each other. And i hate girls who can go from loving one person to the other so fast. Also, the love triangle is a dominate part of the book and one of the major reasons that made me dislke it.
    team Finn always!
