    1. Posted originally reviewedthebook 2014 Equinox is the second book in the Ascension trilogy a vivid, creative series which has been packed so far with fantastic world building and fascinating stories I had mixed feelings on the first book, Zenith, with it lacking in strong character development, and I also felt like its pacing was hit and miss That being said, I thought Equinox was a much stronger novel and it had built on any of Zenith s weaknesses It was darker, tense and action packed, and the [...]

    2. This book follows Zenith, first in the series In that book, twins ascended the mountain in search of a greater truth, and those who succeeded would become members of the Holy Orders Our hero had discovered his truth and all seemed well.So is all well Not so much Turns out that after the first judgment, there s a second judgment and those who fail that one are conscripted into an order who constantly circle the holy keep, but are never allowed inside And with the hero s truth being so out there M [...]

    3. Book Review originally published here iheartreading book touLast week, I reviewed the first book in the Books of Ascension series by Dirk Strasser, Zenith You can read my review here Today I m tackling the second book, and I ll get to the third book in April.What Zenith seemed to lack in action for the first half of the book, is made up by Equinox At the start, we learn about the fate of the Mountain, and how it s endangered, and about how a dark force has ascended that allies with no one, not w [...]

    4. The first line of the synopsis asks Can you see the story breathing The answer is a definite YES Equinox by Dirk Strasser builds on the foundation of book one, Zenith maintaining the same atmospheric quality and intensely spellbinding plot, this time ratcheting up the tension with eminent danger from presumably dark forces from within The Mountain The battles rage for domination of The Mountain between the Maelir, the Faemir and now the Windriders and the answers to the world s fate lies in Atre [...]

    5. Though many trilogies struggle through their middle entry, stuck in a sort of narrative no mans land between introduction and climax, Equinox, sequel to Zenith, is undoubtedly an exception Certainly Equinox is a different sort of book to Zenith, but by no means a worse one, and it is by this difference that it performs so well as a second act.In Zenith, Atreu s journey was very much about the physical as he travelled across the surface of the Mountain, Strasser introduced its peoples, its cities [...]

    6. If the stereotype is that sequels or middle books in a trilogy shadow in the success of their predecessor, then Strasser has broken that stereotype Overall, I d say the process of reading Equinox was much enjoyable than that of Zenith I wasn t too impressed with what I had read in Zenith, so my thoughts were that I would have to struggle through Equinox, but that was simply not the case I read the latter 300 pages over the course of five hours I think part of what made Equinox so much better in [...]

    7. As is so often the way with adventure series, this second novel, Equinox, is so much darker than the first.Now ascenders Atreu and Teyth have reached the summit and Atreu has controversially completed Zenith, he is taken into the Keep, a glorious city at the top of the mountain presided by the Holy Orders of the Maelir There, within it s beautiful walls, he expects to find peace and enlightenment only to discover that his world is ruled by lengthy, archaic conventions which ignore the urgency of [...]

    8. This book delivers I was drawn in immediately as I continued the story from the first book There is action in this part of the series, and I found myself easily engaged Equinox excels at its job as the middle part of this trilogy, and I found myself thoroughly enjoying it The character development grows by leaps and bounds during the course of this section No longer am I shying from Atreu I feel like he grew up quite a lot, and I appreciate the author s talent in showing that growth With the f [...]

    9. I received this book in exchange for an honest review In the first book I was annoyed by Atreu but I can honestly say I am liking him a little since he is at least taking action in this second book of the series I am hooked I had so much fun reading this I ignored everyone until it was finished Now if I can get a hold of book three maybe I can finally breathe Yes because breathing was a definite challenge with all of the action Awesome second book in a series which is not always the case.

    11. I found this book at a local bookstore years ago and absolutely loved it The world building and storytelling was excellent, though I never got around to finding the other installments in the series Perhaps it is time to start looking again because I really loved this second installment in the series Folks that enjoyed Ian Irvine s The View from the Mirror quartet will dig this series as well.
