This is the 4th book in the Ascension series and takes off right where we left in "The Consort".. Cyrene has got to cross the seas to save her friend Avoca from coma and bring Dragons back to Emporia.. When it seems impossible to travel across sea to Alandria, with the help of Orden, Cyrene and her friends travel to Alandria for their mission.. However, getting help to reach Alandria seems to be the easiest part of their mission.. Cyrene needs to compete in a tournament in order to win over a dragon. And Ahlvie has to strike a hard bargain with healers to cure Avoca.. While Cyrene and her friends are engaged in winning over dragons, its getting worst in Emporia with Kael Dremylon gaining strength with blood magic.. And when i thought the real challenge was Cyrene going to war against the all powerful Kael, the author just changed the course of the whole story with a twist.. Nothing prepared me for the twist in the last two chapters of the book.. When everything was going in a direction for 63 chapters, the author just decided to throw us in hell with the last two chapters. However, the whole twist brought clarity to the prologues of the first three books!! This book is a massive 600 plus pages and the author's writing kept me glued till the end.. I loved Kinkadia and the new characters introduced in this book.. I love K.A. Linde writing..And this series is by far my favorite by the author and I so wish she writes more fantasy books in a year... I cant wait for the final book of the series!!!

A great fantasy world! So, I will be the first to admit that I am not usually a fantasy reader. However, I had the awesome opportunity to start reading this series, and I love K.A. Linde, so I thought I'd give it a try. I am so happy I was able to, this series has blown me out of the water. I gobbled up the first three, and The Society was no different. It picks up right after The Consort left off, and yes, you must read these in order. The Society finds Cyrene and her friends in search of the dragons, however, no one has seen a dragon in many years. Along the way, they find adventure, danger, and more allies and adversaries. The stunning conclusion makes you thirsty for more. I loved the world that Ms. Linde has created, it's both dark and light, good and evil, and the characters come to life. The magic is all encompassing, and I can't wait for the conclusion!

A Dragon Tournament? Interesting, I suppose, but not fleshed out all that well considering all of the gaps in time, as well as, the fact that the competition was supposed to be for months but only 3 of the rounds were even described. Vera and Mathilde being Benetta and Malysa was a nice twist but it came at the final few pages along with the announcement of another year to wait for the sequel. These books are rather short in length, but with time skips, random relationship drama, and small problems they have the appearance of a lengthy read. At least in this book the author finally realized that Cyrene is not the ancestor of the 2000 year long dead Sera. That bugged me to no end in the last book.
