The Fifth Book in C.L. Gaber's best-selling adventure of an after-lifetime
Forced to go on the run from her high school for the recently departed, Walker Callaghan must go rogue in a lawless afterlife realm called The Other. She's shot, kidnapped, and forced to fight for her existence.
Can she save her rebel love interest, Daniel Reid, or will fate twist and finally unite her with the man who insists he is her future: Cass Danko? An exhilarating race over untamed lands is filled with the famous and infamous, friends old and new, and time-travel adventures to epic historical events. Locating the elusive X-Catcher—a spirit who does the math—is her ticket back to the Midst.
Walker must ask herself: Can I ever go home again?Should I go back to fight for what’s right?
Book number 5 in the Ascenders series, I think, is the most emotional, gut-wrenching one of all of them. Walker is determined, along with her love Daniel to save the rest of Daniel’s siblings from their psychotic father and go to any lengths to find them in the past time loop they have been hidden. At one point, Walker is his prisoner, and the gross way he tries to manipulate her makes my blood boil. The heartbreaking story cass shares with walker is bitter-sweet, and the amount of loss in this part of the series made me want to ball. I love the addition of Griz to the story; he is sweet and causes parts of the story to seem less bogged down in the sadness of some of the events. In the Ascenders saga, I have such a connection with these characters where they have been, where they are going, and where they hope to be in the future. I am dying for the next installment.
