The Ascent to Godhood
The Ascent to Godhood | JY Yang
5 posts | 3 read | 9 to read
Prepare yourself for The Ascent to Godhood, the fourth book in JY Yang's silkpunk Tensorate series, a wide-ranging, imaginative, engaging playground that the New York Times lauded as "joyously wild." The Protector is dead. For fifty years, the Protector ruled, reshaping her country in her image and driving her enemies to the corners of the map. For half a century the world turned around her as she built her armies, trained her Tensors, and grasped at the reins of fate itself. Now she is dead. Her followers will quiver, her enemies rejoice. But in one tavern, deep in rebel territory, her greatest enemy drowns her sorrows. Lady Han raised a movement that sought the Protector's head, yet now she can only mourn her loss. She remembers how it all began, when the Protector was young, not yet crowned, and a desperate dancing girl dared to fall in love with her.

The 4th volume in the Tensorate series, where we learn about the rise of the Protector. This is the shortest of the 4 books and is a pretty fast read. I'm still really hoping that someday the author might give us some full length novels set in this world. The world building in these books is just begging to be fleshed out even further.

‪I love what Yang is doing with this series. I‘ve said this before, of course, but this is the kind of truly innovative and imaginative SFF that makes me excited for this moment in literature.‬

Happy weekend! It is a miserable gray day here in Maine, but who cares? There are books! 📚
.
I read the new Kevin Wilson last night (SPOILER: I loved it), and now I have my book nest all set up and a few things picked out to read this weekend. (The second book didn‘t come out well - it is MONSTERS OF ELENDHAVEN.) What are your plans this weekend? 📚❤️📚
