Brittany Pressley
Title: Ascension
(The Watcher Chronicles #4)
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, UF
Format: Audiobook
Published:   April 16th 2013 
Where I got It: My shelf (Audible)

In the finale of The Watcher Chronicles, Jess finally learns what Lucifer’s plans are for the world. The vessels discover what their destinies are and Jess must face the most difficult decision of her life.

The final book of this series. But not the last book in the world so that makes this goodbye a little easier. 

Jess finally learns what Lucifer's plans are for the world so it is time to work with her team to get ready for this final battle which will determine the fate of the world. However, Jess will have to face the most difficult decision of her life.

Everything has come together for our characters. The fate of the world rests on Jess and her team. I had no idea how they were going to stop Lucifer. I was nervous the whole time. You could feel that everyone was just waiting for the other shoe to drop. 

I was worried because the last book they spent A LOT of time in bed. Sure I was happy for Jess and Mason in the last book for taking that step in their relationship, but it seemed to take up too much time in the last book. This book....some scenes could've been trimmed a little bit but it didn't eat as much time as the last one did so that made me happy. However, there was a lot of filler scenes though. It was nice seeing and meeting new characters (I'm sure they are going to be popping up in other books) and it was nice to have some downtime here and there, but I felt like it did slow down the plot a little bit. Like the last concert scene or the scene at the hotel where Jess gets UBERLY jealous of Max's ex. Don't get me wrong...I did enjoy a lot of those scenes, but ya it was a little too much overall. 

OoooOOoooo I adored Aiden. I can't wait for more of his story. Poor guy. I want him to have his HEA but it will take time. Gah. 

I am also curious what Lucifer will do next. I like him too even though he is a baddie. He is very complex. I want him to become good again!!

OH that ending was good. I was in tears!!!!!!

The narrator was fantastic as per normal. I wonder if she'll be doing some more of the books in the other series set in this world. She is so good. Her range of voices for the guys and girls are wonderful. 

I can't wait to dive into more of the books. I love this world so much. 

Overall, this was much better than book 3. This did have a lot of filler scenes though...some were fun while some could've been cut out or trimmed a little. Oooo that ending. All the feels. Sobs. I'll give this 3 stars.

I got stuck on filler scenes, I could see myself skimming

I was tempted to do some skimming but I loved seeing our characters have a normal-ish life.

Ended well and left you in tears! Sounds like a good final book even with the parts that could have been trimmed.
