User reviews about this book
This has the makings of a fun story. I really wanted to like it and get lost in it but the writing is a bit redundant and thus a bit boring. Perhaps a less linear writing style. While I understand his character, more Quin perspective would be nice as he seems either a bit too perfect or flat.
Such an addictive series!
I couldnt put this book down! Now I have read all 8. The first one hooks you! The first one is intriguing on all levels. The second one almost lost me BUT it ends leaving you ready for book 3!
Be careful though, I fell so deep into these characters that I was even having dreams about my books! I’m patiently waiting for book 9, which I believe is the ending to series. I’m sad for it to end but can’t wait to finish this out with Layla and Quin!
The mystic series
Great book I will recommend this to any adult to read.
descension and the Mystic series
By 1200 books reader
I have read many books from many different genres. Decension is a well written romance where fantastical events take place. The book does hook you and takes you down a road to find out what happens next.
The only criticism I can offer is there is too many scenes some of which could have been edited out. However, the gold lining for me is sometimes you like the characters so much you want to read more about them and that happens in all the books of this series, some books more than others.
I can’t wait for the final 2 books of this series to be published so I can find out what happens next.
Little did I know that this book would make me crazy with need for the next one to come out. Sometimes you read a book and fall love it. Sometimes you hate it. Sometimes you're just indifferent, but with this book/series will make you absolutely fall in love 😍
This book always left me wanting more after each chapter. I couldn't put it down. It was a great read.

Couldn't put it down! I laughed, cried, and felt every emotion from Layla. Excited to read the rest of the series! Books like these give me a reason and hope to keep reading. 😊
The story is well written and keeps
you turning the pages well into the night :)
Update now that Quins short story's are out I have reread the entire series and it is still amazing! I never got bored of The characters the chapters of her parents make me tear up every time and I'm always holding my breath when danger is near! A must read!
I'll be as honest as possible. This was not one of my favorite books, but it did make me feel things. I cried at the sad parts and if a book can make you feel for a character, then the author is doing something right. With that said I cannot say her character development is great. I know that this is a fantasy story, but I have a hard time accepting that two people can fall that deeply in love within only days---you can't know a person's soul in so little time---I don't care if they're magical, people don't just do that. Another thing that bothered me was how young these people were and yet they were described as experienced capable adults and their parents agree with the children's decisions completely and gave their full support---that is true fantasy, because in real life parents would not normally view a 19 year old son capable of doing the things that Aedan did here, but since they're magically endowed, they can be perfectly mature and functioning members of society without any real character flaw. I'm just dissatisfied with the characters in the magical community, because they're too "perfect" to be relatable---Layla was nice because she was vulnerable and uncertain of herself like most young women would be in her position before finding out about her magical heritage. After reading the first book, I don't know if I'll read the other books in the series. The only part of the story that I found worthwhile was the part where Layla was encouraged to leave her old life as a diner waitress and pursue something more. I liked how she chose to be courageous by traveling across country to find out about her family---but then the story focused on Quinn romancing her. Romancing isn't bad, but I would have wanted to enjoy watching Layla grow into her own person. Love stories are wonderful, but they don't make you feel anything if the people in the relationship don't seem genuine. They're just fairytales.
I liked this book a lot except for the fact that a lot of the book has the memories of the parents. They added to many memories and I skipped half the book because of that. I easily guessed what was gonna happen so there was no need for so much detail
