A clairvoyant young woman finds her visions of the future to be a nuisance, until she discovers that she is hardly unique. An entire group of seers has learned how to profit from their knowledge in ways that Ariel has never considered. Another group is obsessed with using their talents to understand a dark future they cannot ignore. An alliance with either crowd looks dangerous, given that they both seem a little crazy. There is no possible way to help them both. Worse yet, each group is convinced that Ariel is more than a potential asset; she’s the one thing that they must have in order to succeed.

Having read the previous books, I bought this one as soon as I heard about it. I was not disappointed, this was a very good, fast read. I could not put it down.

D4 is the fifth installment in the Ascending Series. This book focuses on the skill of Ariel, the older daughter from the Zietman family. The story is set in financial backdrop where Ariel works for a firm that handles software and hardware for high frequency trading.
Though the book is fifth installment in series, it can be read as a standalone. The book does have references to other books in the series, but the writer has ensured to give it a context.
It is evident that the writer has done enough research about high frequency stock trading and its impact on the world economy. The fact that the story is set in a very remote place of the world, makes it more interesting.
Like the previous books in the series, the characters in this book also have a special paranormal skill, the skill to predict future based on contact (i.e. touch). The writer beautifully showed variation in range of the particular skill. In sense, the future can be near future or say...
