Karchut does a good job with her teen-friendly prose and her voice is fresh and engaging.
Amazon Customer
The story is short, but contains a superior essence blending the characters in a well developed plot that is just right.
Yara Santos
It's fun to see Griffin come to terms with his situation, enter the high school and work at being human.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Darby Karchut continues Griffin's amazing story in this second installment while still building on the key elements that made the first book such a pleasure to read. This series is all about great parental figures, healthy relationships and doing the right thing. Honestly, if more young adult authors followed Darby's lead I'd be more inclined to read books in this genre. Griffin's Fire further proves that it's possible to write a riveting story with lovable characters without having to throw the parents under the bus.

I thought Griffin had problems in the first novel but those now pale in comparison to what he faces in book two! Finn finds himself attending school for the first time ever at the age of sixteen which in itself is a massive undertaking but when you throw in cohabitating with a new apprentice and a massive secret you get utter chaos. In true teenage fashion he takes it out on everyone around him. I love the characters in this series and watching how they deal with their problems. Their issues are as realistic as their coping mechanisms. It's also refreshing to see that even though they do argue; their love for one another is never put into question. At the end of the day, Griffin knows that no matter how bad he screws up Basil supports him implicitly. The same can be said of Katie and her family.

One of the things that I enjoyed the most about Griffin Rising was reading the journal entries of the various characters. I was happy to see that Karchut continued with these in this installment. These parts help add an additional layer of depth to the story and to Griffin, Basil and Katie's personalities. It's an interesting way of incorporating thoughts and feelings into the plot without the need for internal monologues.

Format: Perfect Paperback
At the end of Griffin's Rising you're left wondering what in the world is Griffin going to do? So much happened in book one and you know he's feeling completely defeated. Not surprisingly Griffin is nearly defeated but not by his enemies, by himself. But something starts growing inside of him that makes him realize that yes he is upset but it's time to stop giving himself a pity party and to start living life!

I like this book even more than book one. It dives right in and since you already know what's happening it feels like instead of moving to a second book that you are literally just turning from the last page to the first page. The characters were still there and even more fun, now we have a new Tiro. Sergei is not my favorite character. He makes things a living hell for Griffin when life is not really going anywhere for the poor boy. But Griffin has a strength of character and he really starts to live instead of just existing.

Although if Griffin said FIRE one more time in place of an expletive I may have started throwing expletives! I know it's a way to give him something to say, especially as a young adult, without cursing but can't we just say dang or crap instead? Well, then it wouldn't be Griffin speaking now would it? Just a silly thing that kept getting to me, definitely didn't take away too much from the story.

The end comes together fabulously and there are even a few twists that keep you wanting to know more. You never really know why the MAIN thing happens but it's fabulous enough that I was totally ok with not having a scientific reason. Boy, sometimes talking without giving away anything is so tough! All I can say is that this is better than the first. Really good read, totally fun with a positive twist that anyone can live by. Excellent!

I received a digital galley, free, in exchange for my honest review.
I really liked Griffin Rising, the ending was not expected. I may not have enjoyed that ending as much if I had not known that that the story continued, if I didn't know that something was up. But I did, so it didn't sting as much. With this installment, I kind of knew what to expect, but not in the way that it all came together. I loved Griffin's Fire! Loved it! I liked it so much more than the first book! I wish that I could say exactly what it is that I loved about this book, but there really isn't one thing.
The story is an interesting take on angels. It's not the usual winged beings either fallen or earth-homed (yep made that word up). And it's not even that I don't like the winged angels, I do. But this is more boy-next-door type of story. Griffin is a teenager, and he is going through the normal teenage stuff with a whole lot more. He was created to be an earth-angel. also known as guardian angel. That is what he has been aiming to become since his arrival. When that gift and ability was taken from him, he was forced to become mortal. Not so easy when you are so very different and you know you were created for one purpose, so much so that it's etched into your bones. But Griffin, finally accepts his mortality and goes about making those adjustments.
Once he kind of gets into the swing of things, he starts to regain his lost abilities. Griffin makes some stomach-clenching awful mistakes. A lot of bad things/bad luck continues to happen to him. Now, he has the confidence to deal with. Yes, he thinks he has to do it alone. Yes, he is often a bratty teenage boy. Yes, he makes some stupid - really stupid- mistakes. He still has the ability to lose more than what he knows he can.
