Diana Reynolds can’t believe her destined mates are Logan Firth and Cameron Gilbert. Who are they really, and how did they know to cloak their magic?
Logan and Cameron are true descendants of the Chosen, those Gifted who stayed behind to protect their ungifted brethren—and they’ve been waiting for their mate, it feels like, forever and she’s just as fiery and fierce as they’d hoped. All they have to do is convince her that they really were all meant to be together.
Diana expected to teach two latently gifted men how to use their powers, but she quickly decides having them already at nearly full strength is a good thing when she’s attacked by two warlocks determined not to die at fate’s hands.
And when those two young men quit the field, Diana, Logan, and Cameron know it’s no victory—because there is another power close, one that’s more formidable than any of them ever imagined.
Diana knows her time is coming. Her sisters have found their mates and have done their part to fulfill the prophecy and she’s all that is left. Only problem…she isn’t ready. In Passions Ascended, the final installment of Cara Covington’s The Gifted series, Diana’s life is about to change whether she is ready or not.
Diana is strong and in control, or at least she thinks she is. But when she meets her mates and learns they are more aware of their heritage, she is at a loss. She anticipated having to dole out information and training which would give her an edge. But Logan and Cameron are comfortable with their powers and their control is on par with hers. I enjoyed seeing Diana caught off guard. Ms. Covington allowed this mating to be a meeting of equals. Diana had to learn to let go and accept that she did not always have to be in control. I loved that Logan kept Diana off balance throughout their dealings. He knew it wasn’t time and went to great lengths to keep Diana unaware of who he would be in her future. But even as Logan thought he had the upper hand, Ms. Covington showed him the core of the woman he hid from. And Cameron was the icing on this mating. He balanced both Logan and Diana perfectly.
I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Covington’s writing and this installment was no exception. She gave us strong characters, an abiding love and unexpected twists. This was a wonderful story and I hope she will continue to follow the threads she left open in future stories.
