Cover Reveal + Giveaway: Ascendent (Cuspian Saga Book 2) by DC Hall

Expected Release Date
March 2015


Fraternal twins Kendal and Kennedi Myles are desperate for their broken lives to return to a time when stolen kisses, football games, and an overbearing parent was normal. But being the most powerful Cuspians—a superpowered subspecies of humans—in America isn't exactly normal, and that time has passed from their lives forever.

Kennedi has spent her summer training for the inevitable moment when Beau—the Cuspian she loved and then betrayed—returns to kidnap both her and her brother for The Conservatory, an agency desperate to acquire the strongest of their kind at any cost. But Kennedi refuses to be collected like vintage couture. She’s ready to protect the ones she loves most—at whatever cost.

Kendal is fed up with waiting to be attacked for his role in the near-fatal assault that left three of The Conservatory's operatives in bloody pieces. With the threat of vengeance around every corner, he hacks into The Conservatory's database, yielding disastrous results. As new clues into his mother’s death emerge, Kendal must decide just how far he's willing to go to uncover the truth.

Focused on their individual quests, the twins’ attention is divided and their weaknesses are exploited. Every decision they make drives a wedge further between them, and the pair soon realizes something they can never unlearn: the price that comes with power is often too high to pay.

About the Author:

DC Hall is obsessed with argyle socks, the smell of books and believes he is the smartest person in the room. Granted he’s usually alone when he thinks this but it still feels good. When his nose isn’t stuck in a book, DC is usually writing or trying to teach his dog, Brooklyn, how to wash dishes (success remains elusive.) DC is from the south where the teas are sweet, distance is measured in minutes—not miles, and the skies are always Carolina blue. 

Ascendent Teaser
 Currents of air seeped away from me, turning strains of my hair into individual whips. 
“It’s beautiful.” 
My ability. Not me. But it. Not that I was fishing for a compliment from the creepier but I was more than what I could do. 
Samuel continued, seemingly oblivious to my dismissal to him. “Your power isn’t limited the way ours is. The things you can do with your mind. This wind. Your mind. Your brother’s telekinesis. It’s breathtaking.” He cleared this throat. “You are going to get me the stars.”
I tried to ignore him but his voice enraged me. He spoke as if I was an animal. This tiger, colored in stripes by nature’s paintbrush, that was admired for the very thing that was going to make her a fur rug. 
“The stars aren't for sale.”
“Sweet, Kennedi. They are always for sale.” These words were soft, almost remorseful.
