Book Description

New York Times and USA Today Best-selling paranormal romance author Felicity Heaton presents

A witch on the verge of achieving phenomenal power, Lealandra must turn to her half-breed demon ex-lover Taig for protection from the dark force that is after her and also from her own magic.

With her Counter-Balance dead and her coven against her, Taig’s blood and power is the only thing that can help her control her magic and survive the ascension and gain the strength to defeat her enemy.

Old feelings come flooding back as Taig allows her into his world and Lealandra finds herself fighting not only for survival but to win his broken heart again and heal the pain in their past. Can he forgive her for walking out on him all those years ago and will he ever believe her when she tells him that he’s not a monster but the man that she loves?

About the Author

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sizzling Hot Read! 23 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lealandra is a witch on the verge of achieving phenomenal power. With her Counter-Balance dead and her coven against her, she must turn to her half-breed demon ex-lover, Taig, for protection from the dark force that is after her and her own magic. Taig's blood and power is the only thing that can help Lealandra control her magic enough to survive the ascension. Can she win back his broken heart, and can he forgive her for walking out on him? Will Taig ever believe her when she tells him he's not a monster, but the man she loves?

Warning: This book is for adults only due to scenes of an explicit nature!

This is the first book in the Shadow and Light Trilogy, and is another fantastic story from Felicity Heaton!
Lealandra is a powerful witch, but she is going through the ascension, a transition where her power is at it's peak. However, her Counter-Balance (the person to help her through it) has been killed by persons unknown. In desperation, she turns to her ex-lover Taig, a half human-half demon, for protection.
I loved Lealandra's character. She is usually brave, but the death of her Counter-Balance has her running scared. She is stubborn and tenacious when she wants something. But when it comes to Taig, she is still in love with him - even though she was the one to break up with him six years previously.
Taig is a fantastic alpha male. He does have an issue with his demon side - he doesn't like it much. However, if he was real, I think I would keep him! Who says demons have to be bad? That's not to say he's not dangerous - he is - but he has a loving side, and he loves Lealandra very much. (Darn it!).
I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book if you love a fantastic, spicy novel that will get your heart pounding!

2.0 out of 5 stars 1.5 29 May 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Eh, wish I'd left this one on the shelf. While the idea was an interesting one, the actual execution is a mess and frankly Lealandra was the kind of heroine I always want to slap and the gender relations are so outdated and disgusting I almost couldn't get past them.

Let me start with some examples of Lealandra's behavior. She returns to her ex when she needs his protection. She then kisses him, but gets pissed off when he basically says, "I'll only help you if you have sex with me" (which also makes him a big dick, even after Lea's internal monologue says he's only saying it to get back at her for leaving) but spends the whole book giving him very obvious mixed signals (because she really loves him and wants to have sex with him, despite refusing). She gets jealous of him speaking to another woman, so she throws herself into obvious danger and gets herself drugged and almost assaulted, requiring rescue. She get's angry at the bad guy and then charges in to fight him, so unprepared she literally didn't even put clothes on (yes, naked). Again, needs rescuing while thinking, "I wish I'd listened to Taig." She allows Taig to constantly talk about possessing her, owning her, releasing custody of her, taking care of her, protecting, etc. She lived with a man for six years who did "allow" her to do something she needed. Her impending ascension means that she isn't able to control her own body or sexuality. (God, that is such a common theme in romance books and it always pisses me off.) She's 32 bloody years old, but acts and is treated like a child.

Basically, Lea's character, which we're told is strong can, be summed up in this disgusting quote:"Usually she was strong, but around him, she felt as though she didn’t need to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's done it again!!! 7 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being an avid fan of Felicity Heaton's Vampire books, and having read all of her VR and VET books I thought I would give Ascension a try, I couldn't put it down - I downloaded it on the Thursday night and finished it on Saturday the only reason it took so long was because of a pesky thing called work that I had to do in between my sessions of sinking my teeth into the gorgeous leading male, Taig! who knew a half man half demon could be so hot! And as for the leading lady Lealandra, well, she's smart, strong, funny and powerful - the tension and the history between these two characters is, as always, well written by Felicity you feel like you know the characters and with every scene she sets you feel like you are there watching, during the battles (of which there are a quite a few) you literally feel like you are there dodging spells and killing bad guys with them. This book has it all, tension, romance, action, mega hotness, a deep story line, fabulous scene setting and of course characters that you will love.

Taig is half man, half demon, Lealandra is a very powerful witch - six years ago they spent 6 months together but Lealandra left to be paired with a counter-balance witch after being placed with him by her coven - now with her ascension looming and her counter-balance dead, coupled with some betrayal and all that other gripping stuff us readers love, there is only one person she can turn to for help, Taig but after her leaving him 6 years ago will he help her, will he be able to make peace with his own demons to enable himself to let her in and protect her.... you'll have to read the book to find out!!
