I have many series on my shelves which I haven’t even dipped into yet, and I am certain I will keep adding more. Although I do enjoy the stand alone novel, I especially love a series. I enjoy getting to know the characters further than just one book allows and the characters become my friends – to escape into their world just for a little while is a real pleasure. Once a month I will be spotlighting a series, just so we can add more books to our ever growing TBR piles
This Month’s Series Spotlight: ‘The World of Ascension‘ by Caris Roane
(Paranormal Romance • US Covers • Published by St Martin’s Press)
I have this series on my shelf and I really can’t wait to read it. I absolutely love all the covers in this series too, they are just swoon-worthy. I’m such a sucker for angels at the moment, although reading the summaries it may be that they are actually vampires with wings? Either way, this series sounds like a must read for me!
