Zenith – The First Book of Ascension
Can you see the story breathing?
A mountain so great it takes a year to travel from base to summit
A sun so powerful it drives you into madness if you look at it
An ascent so vital it determines the fate of the world
A summit so precious it holds the key to the divine
The world of the great Mountain is unstable. Giant pillars erupt from the surface and yawning chasms form unpredictably underfoot. Since the Maelir first stood on its slopes in the distant past, they have sought to still its anger and control its power. Each year, twin brothers are chosen to make a perilous journey to the summit. If they survive they will be witness to Zenith, and the secrets will be revealed to them.
When Atreu and Teyth embark on their Ascent, their Talismans lead them onto conflicting paths that will ultimately set brother against brother. And this time the Ascent itself is in peril as unknown forces that have long craved the power of Zenith will stop at nothing to make it their own even if it means destroying the very thing that sustains all life the Mountain itself.
The book focuses mainly on Atreu’s ascent to the summit. He meets some weird people on his way and learns that the world is a very strange place.
So is this book any good you ask? well I personally found this manuscript a struggle to read now this is not to say it is not any good for the right person who loves a very descriptive adventure novel on a personal level it went over my head a bit.
This book is one of the series and to be perfectly honest I can honestly say I won’t be rushing to read the next.
I am really sad that this book was not for me as I absolutely love a fairy tale and fantasy novel
