THE ASCENDERS SAGA by C.L. Gaber tells the story of teens who died young, and a special limbo they arrive in that’s not very different from their life on earth. According to one reviewer: "Holy Batflaps, Batman! The second book in the Ascenders Saga will take you from one bumpy ride to the next as we follow Walker Callaghan, and Daniel Reid on their journey back from their realm jumping adventure that costs them eternity in the big house in the clouds." Gaber says her inspiration for the series is "If your brain isn’t pumping on all cylinders until you’re 24, I figured that you have some time to still be a teenager, but in a world with absolutely no rules. Imagine it: All that energy and you could do anything you wanted, but there would be no real consequences. Falling in love, however, would be dangerous. What if you ascended before him or her? In many ways, that would be like a second death." So even in the afterlife, romance can be complicated. C.L. Gaber is an author and film journalist for the New York Times Syndicate and Chicago Sun Times where she has interviewed many celebrities, including Julianne Moore, Bradley Cooper and Will Smith. She also co-authored the Jex Malone series. Originally from Chicago, she makes her home in Nevada with her husband, daughter and two unruly dogs.GABER WILL BE DOING A GIVEAWAY OF 5 SIGNED COPIES OF BOTH BOOKS FOR LISTENERS.
