Diana Peterfreund is the author of many books for adults and children, including the critically acclaimed For Darkness Shows the Stars and Across a Star-Swept Sea. She lives with her family outside Washington, DC, in a house full of bookshelves, and is always on the lookout for lost cities or stray rocket ships.
"Dystopian, ideological, rebellious-Peterfreund's fantasy homage to
Austen's Persuasion departs from the original in many respects, and
with great success .... a richly envisioned portrait of a society
in flux, a steely yet vulnerable heroine, and a young man who does
some growing up."--Publishers Weekly
Praise for ASCENDANT: "In this thrilling sequel to Peterfreund's Rampant...the strong yet vulnerable heroine, compelling conflicts, and exquisite settings should find a voracious audience in those familiar with the first installment."--Publishers Weekly
"Will be a hit with fans of sci-fi romances... Readers will keep turning the pages right up to the end."--School Library Journal (starred review)
