Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Felicity Heaton is a romance author writing as both Felicity Heaton and F E Heaton. She is passionate about penning paranormal tales full of vampires, witches, werewolves, angels and shape-shifters, and has been interested in all things preternatural and fantastical since she was just a child. Her other passion is science-fiction and she likes nothing more than to immerse herself in a whole new universe and the amazing species therein. She used to while away days at school and college dreaming of vampires, werewolves and witches, or being lost in space, and used to while away evenings watching movies about them or reading gothic horror stories, science-fiction and romances. Having tried her hand at various romance genres, it was only natural for her to turn her focus back to the paranormal, fantasy and science-fiction worlds she enjoys so much. She loves to write seductive, sexy and strong vampires, werewolves, witches, angels and alien species. The worlds she often dreams up for them are vicious, dark and dangerous, reflecting aspects of the heroines and heroes, but her characters also love deeply, laugh, cry and feel every emotion as keenly as anyone does. She makes no excuses for the darkness surrounding them, especially the paranormal creatures, and says that this is their world. She's just honoured to write down their adventures.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Loved the storyline but... 17. Januar 2012
Von Lalla Rookh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
After reading through the stellar peer and reader reviews, I was utterly disappointed with the book and felt the writing was amateurish. The book read like an adult PNR with characters taken from a teen/YA story. This is in part due to the character inconsistencies that you usually see (if intentionally written that way) in kids with the internal struggle of hormonal imbalances and youthful insecurities. "Does he love me? No he must not love me. He loves me! OMG, he doesn't love me! Should I tell him I love him? No, he will make fun of me!"...ad infinitum (and I do mean endlessly in this book).

If this development is intentional and consistent (or morphs to maturity with adequate culture) I don't have any problems with it, but the author clearly has drawn these characters to be mature - the sex scenes surely are - and yet the constant internal warring and insecurities is so extreme (in both hero and heroine) that I began picturing the hero and heroine as adolescents who out of the blue would act like adults and then revert to adolescence. Compounding this problem was the overuse of simplistic extremisms of thought/language with the hero/heroine that most people would identify with in a more juvenile readership. Lines like, "[he thought] it was the most annoying sound on the planet." Really? That thought coming from a totally bad ass, mature, brooding, sexy demon? Give me a break.

There were also situational inconsistencies that drove me nuts and a few instances of deus ex machina that had me muttering under my breath. I think these could have been eliminated if the pace of the book had been slowed down enough to allow the writer to more logically lead the reader from one situation to the next - help the reader to understand how the hero/heroine attained additional skills, etc. I love a fast paced, sexy story as much as the next girl, but if there isn't enough support to make the "big" moments plausible, I lose respect.

I really wanted to like this story and stuck with it to the end. I am a fan of Gena Showalter, Christine Feehan and the like, but I definitely could not compare this author's works to the aforementioned. The best I can say is that it was a very good idea that failed in execution.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Worth reading! 8. Januar 2012
Von Andrea Kozári - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I don't know why most of the author's readers never mention this book. I keep seeing her Angel and Vampires books, but not this one. But I can tell, that Ascension is as good as her other books. Okay, maybe I am a little biased against this, because my favorite para creatures are the demons for a while now. Although this book is about witches rather than demons, actually, our Heroine; Lealandra, is a powerful witch who begins to lose control over her own magic, as her Ascension is coming. Witches need their own Counter-Balance. Someone who can temper their magic. Here is the problem. She lost hers. Moreover, someone wants her dead. Lealandra leaves her coven to find her ex-lover and ask for help. The demon hunter, Taig who is also a half-demon. He let her go six years ago; he definitely will not make that mistake again, now that she is back. In a world, where usually witches and demons don't get involved with the other race's problem, now for some reason, the demons hunting her, and when theoretically her coven would be the best help for her, it seems, the only person who Lealandra can trust is her half-demon ex. Her Ascension mark clearly shows that Taig has a big role in her ascension. The question is what is his role and is he powerful enough to save Lealandra? It's a race against time, a war against witches, demons and her own magic.

This action packed, magical romance story won't give you rest. As most of Felicity's books, Ascension begins in medias res. With a *cough* HOT *cough* scene between Taig and Lealandra. I did not have a tiny problem with this book! Nothing... Nada! There was action, romance, mystery, drama, loveable characters, funny quotes, good story, and two strong lead characters. My only question is what really happened with Taig's parents???

I must post a few quotes from/about Taig, because I just love him and these were memorable for me...

"I guess that's why you're here. Loverboy just doesn't cut it when it comes to handling demons. That pair of weaklings would have him inside out and back to front before he could lift a finger to cast whatever impotent half-assed spell he could muster."

"If I'd decided not to let him take you, he wouldn't have. He would've died a lot sooner."

"There were at least twenty storeys on the building and it was wide. He figured it housed around seven hundred witches. That was six hundred and ninety nine more than he was comfortable with."

And there's a few more, but I let you find them. I highly recommend this book!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ascension 19. November 2012
Von Ava Renee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I love when a book starts of with major hot action! Ascension is another great read by Felicity Heaton that's packed full of action, sensuality, mystery and amazing characters like she's done many times over in her works. Any romance and paranormal genre reader out there will have a great time reading Ascension!

Lealandra is about to ascend into her full power but needs help to do so. She needs a balance to help her keep her power in check. The only person she can think to go to for help his someone she thought she'd never see again and had missed for many years, her ex Taig. Now she just has to figure out how to get him to help her without crossing any unsettling boundaries that she does not want to cross and still receive his help.

Taig is a half demon hottie that speaks his mind and is not one to be messed with! He has some acceptance issues (about himself) and holds a lot of hate towards his parents for abandoning him without a word. One thing that brightens his day and calms his demon has never changed from day one he was with her, Lealandra. But she had to leave him for reasons of her coven and regrets ever letting her go. Now that she comes to him in need of help; he will stop at absolutely nothing to protect her, forever!

Together these two are a force to be reckoned with in the bedroom and out getting some fighting action. A team in so many ways it gives the reader a sense of awe at how perfect they are. They both came a very long way by the end and what an end it is :)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Characters 27. Oktober 2012
Von creativedeeds - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Okay, long story short. I absolutely loved these characters. There was really nothing about Taig and Lealandra that I didn't like. The end. Umm... I'm kinda guessing that you may want a little bit more than that. OK, so here it goes.

Okay, long story short. I absolutely loved these characters. There was really nothing about Taig and Lealandra that I didn't like. The end. Umm... I'm kinda guessing that you may want a little bit more than that. OK, so here it goes.

Ascension had everything in it that I absolutely love about paranormal romance. Mystery, romance (duh!), tension, an unwilling alpha, some really bad - bad guys and heat. Yep, that just about covers it. *sigh*

Taig was what I have come to know as Felicity Heaton's typical hero. He hates his dark side. He has loved and lost and that love has a name. Lealandra. What he doesn't understand is that he never really lost her. That, in itself, is what drives this story - at least it was for me.

Lealandra was in a no-win situation. She did what she felt she had to do in the past and she still is when the story opens. The connection between her and Taig was great. She had her work cut out for her. She had a power she couldn't control by herself and she needed Taig physically and emotionally. She just had to convince him of that. Taig was willing, but needed more for Lealandra than even he was willing to admit. Once again.... *sigh*

The supporting characters in Ascension were impressive too. They help to keep the action going and kept the reader's interest. A lot went on in this book and there was a lot to learn about the different races. Heaton did a great job at helping you keep it all straight.

I know that this is listed as a stand alone novel at the end of the book, but according to her list of WIP on her website, Ascension 2 is due to be released in 2014. That's a very good thing because there is definitely more to Taig and Lealandra's story and I really wouldn't mind visiting them again. ;)

5.0 von 5 Sternen another success 27. November 2014
Von L. Clover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Lealandra is a powerful witch of old magic. The thing about old magic is that it has needs. In Lea's case, it needs powerful demon blood and sex. These two ingredients are mandatory for Lea to survive her ascension of powerful. When a witch ascends it is a form of maturity, like puberty. The magic matures and becomes one with the host or witch. The down side to this great rite of passage is that this can also kill the witch. So not a wonderful thing. A witch ascending is a respected yet feared occurrence. However not only does Lea have this fear to battle, she discovers someone is out to kill her before she ascends. Her fear takes her back to her old lover for help. Taige is a demon hunter who is half human and half demon. Both Lea and Taige are deeply in love with one another but it takes a lot to get these two confess their need of one another. Breaking from Lea's coven, battling demon assassins, battling coven leaders, after surviving Lea's ascending, bonding and branding one another, Taige and Lea realize what is most important. But when all is well and done, Lea's reciprocated love for Taige allows her peace. Felicity is one of my favorite paranormal authors and her writing justifies her imagination as well as addictive storytelling. She never disappoints and that is a quality every author should strive in their stories.
