The Ascension

Author Signed Copies of Hot New Young Adult Fiction/Fantasy Release
On their 15th birthday, a brother and two sisters—Felix, Jinx and Desdemona Anchor—are having strange dreams. A nurse hands over a newborn baby to a mysterious woman, as the child’s frantic mother is injected with a sedative. A boy stumbles along a pathway, trapped beneath a giant dome, as ghostly relatives light candles on a floating birthday cake. A weird triangular object binds the triplets to each other in a thunderstorm.
Thus begins “The Ascension” (Headline Books), an action-filled coming-of- age novel about gifted siblings, separated at birth, who discover higher purposes for their lives. But after learning the shocking truth about their hidden heritage, can they survive long enough to save the world from evil forces that plague them? Can three naive, yet powerful kids confront evil and preserve a community of guardian angels on earth?
“The Ascension” is the second book and debut novel by 16-year- old Lauren Hudson, of Villa Hills, Kentucky. Her previous, nonfiction book, “Our Best Tomorrow: Students Teaching Capitalism to America,” won numerous awards and garnered national media attention, including appearances on Fox News and The Blaze.
