#Bookreview of Ascension (Sabrina Strong Series Book 1) by Lorelei Bell


Left penniless after the death of her father, Sabrina Strong isn’t thrilled at the prospect of working for the North American Vampire Association.

Driven by accumulating bills (and a secret desire to discover the identity of the mysterious figure haunting her dreams), Sabrina is attacked on the way to the interview. Her life is narrowly saved by a passing vampire—one whom is strangely familiar. Could he be the one that turned her mother and marked Sabrina as his own so long ago?

But Sabrina’s concerns are pushed aside after being hired to investigate the murder of Letitia—lover of Vampire Master, Bjorn Tremayne. Sabrina is quickly immersed in dangerous trysts as the North American Vampire Association comes under threat of those who seek to satiate their own greedy desires.

The first book in Lorelei Bell’s Sabrina Strong series, Ascensionis an urban fantasy full of longing, heartache, and passion.


Sabrina Strong was anything but normal.  Being born a touch clairvoyant, she was considered a freak by her peers, and basically shunned most of her life.  So when she answered an ad for a company searching for a clairvoyant, the last thing she expected was to become the center of attention, males swooning all over her.  But wait . . they’re vampires, werewolves, and shape- shifters.  What the hell did she get into? 

I really enjoyed this novel.  It has a solid mystery story wrapped around the paranormal.  As Sabrina tracks down the person killing vampires with a crossbow, she finds her past catching up with her.  Who is Vasyl, and what does he want with her?  What does he have to do with her mother who disappeared years ago?  For being mostly dead vampires, the characters are alive and vibrant.  Suddenly, Sabrina finds herself surrounded by hunky men,and they all want a piece of her.  Bell does a great job with the sexual tension between the different characters.  My favorite is Dante.  Yum!.  As some questions were answered, other questions remain.  That’s why I bought book two.  Is Sabrina really the sibyl?  And what of Nicolas?  Is he really on Tremayne’s side? 

If this book had some additional proofreading and editing, it would be a 5 star novel.  I had issues with some of the sentence structures as they seemed backwards and awkward.

If you’re in the mood for a good thriller with larger than life paranormal characters, you should read this series.  I give it 4 feathers.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
