Ascending Power highlights the modern day David and Goliath struggle between energy corporations and Native Americans. From the very beginning I was grabbed by the action, suspense and Billy's character. I liked that Billy was struggling and was invested in using a skill other than football to save his town. The narration begins from his point of view and I wanted to see the rest of the story through his eyes; however, in order to get the full view of the many different sides of the story, the point of view changed hands many different times. With the numerous characters, I felt that not all of them were fully fleshed out and some became a stereotyped or caricatured version of themselves. The suspense and many plot twists kept me reading and I'm glad that Billy story felt resolved.
