Review

Praise for ASCENDANT: "Peterfreund is sure to gain a stronger following with Ascendant, and fans will eagerly await further titles in the series."--School Library Journal

Praise for ASCENDANT: "I was riveted by Ascendant. It's not only about killer unicorns; it's also about finding the courage to make tough decisions--and to be true to yourself. I think Astrid rocks!"--Malinda Lo, author of ASH

Praise for ASCENDANT: "In this thrilling sequel to Peterfreund's Rampant...the strong yet vulnerable heroine, compelling conflicts, and exquisite settings should find a voracious audience in those familiar with the first installment."--Publishers Weekly

"A smart and sexy tale of star-crossed love that's as thought-provoking as it is heartbreaking."--Robin Wasserman, author of THE BOOK OF BLOOD AND SHADOW

"A beautiful, epic love story you won't be able to put down!"--Simone Elkeles, New York Times bestselling author of the Perfect Chemistry series

"Don't you love it when a brilliant idea meets with brilliant execution? Thank you, Diana Peterfreund for giving us a post-apocalyptic Persuasion. This book is meltingly good."--Laini Taylor, National Book Award Finalist for LIPS TOUCH: THREE TIMES

"Diana Peterfreund's For Darkness Shows the Stars is an impassioned ode to Jane Austen, love, and the hope found in stars."--Beth Revis, New York Times bestselling author of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE and A MILLION SUNS

"Succeeds in recasting Austen's characters to bring her themes to a futurist society and provide wry comment on life in the twenty-first century .... will appeal to science fiction and romance fans alike.--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"Dystopian, ideological, rebellious-Peterfreund's fantasy homage to Austen's Persuasion departs from the original in many respects, and with great success .... a richly envisioned portrait of a society in flux, a steely yet vulnerable heroine, and a young man who does some growing up."--Publishers Weekly

Will be a hit with fans of sci-fi romances Readers will keep turning the pages right up to the end. --School Library Journal (starred review)"

From the Back Cover

It's been several generations since a genetic experiment gone wrong caused the Reduction, decimating humanity and giving rise to a Luddite nobility who outlawed most technology.

Elliot North has always known her place in this world. Four years ago Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family's estate over love. Since then the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress, and Elliot's estate is foundering, forcing her to rent land to the mysterious Cloud Fleet, a group of shipbuilders that includes renowned explorer Captain Malakai Wentforth--an almost unrecognizable Kai. And while Elliot wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she let him go.

But Elliot soon discovers her old friend carries a secret--one that could change their society . . . or bring it to its knees. And again, she's faced with a choice: cling to what she's been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she's ever loved, even if she's lost him forever.

Inspired by Jane Austen's persuasion, For Darkness Shows the Stars is a breathtaking romance about opening your mind to the future and your heart to the one person you know can break it.
