  Good afternoon all, its a very chilly here a great day to stay inside and read a book . Today I have for you HEIR ASCENDANT ( Faded Skies book one ) by Matthew S Cox. 

                           BOOK BLURB

  In the aftermath of World War Three, the most famous face in the world belongs to a nine year old girl.

Maya Oman is the daughter of the woman who controls what’s left of civilization, the CEO of Ascendant Pharmaceuticals Corporation. Her smile is as ubiquitous as air, selling everything from vital medicine to vanity drugs with risky side effects. Lifelike android clones reside in over a dozen homes, shielding her from the violent resentment of a population straining under her mother’s boot heel.

Ascendant’s power comes from Xenodril, a drug capable of reversing the effects of Fade, a disease some claim came from aliens or from the governments that predate the war. Only Ascendant sells it, and at a price only Citizens can afford. The rest are left to die.

Maya’s earliest memories are of living alone in a penthouse apartment, desperate for the attention of a mother who never visits. Forbidden to go out except to record advertising video, her only friend has been the ‘net. When she is taken for ransom by a group of mercenaries with nothing left to lose, she discovers her life may not be what she thought it was—or wants.

                 MY REVIEW 
   Maya is a sweet young girl who has been living alone in a penthouse apartment who is alone every day until her mother comes for a visit. She is just used for advertising . Until the day she is stolen by a band of mercenaries . She then discovers a family who has nothing left to loose and maybe her life is better now then it was before. 

  The characters in this story are very well written and have complex natures . Maya is a sweet girl who is lonely and starving attention from anyone . She is sweet and loving but also tough as nails . Sometimes you feel that she older then 9. She is resourceful and has the heart as big as the world . She want to make the world a better place . With the help of her friends and the woman who is more of a mother to her then her real mother . They will try and make the world a little better and more fair to those who are less then . 

  This is a book that will take you away into a world after World War 3 in a dystopian world where the rich are the rich and the poor are the poorest . The author paints us a wonderful world full of great characters and sometimes gritty scenery . There is so much that goes on through out this book , and trust me you will get sucked into the world and care for Maya and the gang . This has a young main character but it is not meant for younger readers . This is the story that will keep you reading all through the night . So if you want a book that will engross you and keep you reading .  So if you have an evening grab a cup tea and settle down and start a journey . Check it out .
