Stacey Rourke's second installment of the Gryphon Series, Embrace, is as well-written as the first. The writing style is very polished and well-balanced. The descriptive nature of the writing helps draw you into the story and allows you to visualize the setting and moment you are reading. Rourke's timely wit only aids to further grab your attention as you become immersed into the tale of Celeste and her siblings fighting the Dark Army while they struggle with the effects of supernatural powers bestowed upon them all while trying to develop a "normal" life.
The plot of the second book flows extremely well with the first book, The Conduit, and does not miss a beat. Very quickly you are as mentally involved with the characters as you were when you finished The Conduit. The story line successfully introduces new characters while further developing the ones you have read about previously.
One of the best parts of this book is the inclusion of plot twists and turns. You will not find yourself making assumptions about how things will happen later in the story only to read you were correct in later chapters. When you combine this aspect of the novel with the descriptive writing and quick wit, you find yourself visualizing yourself in the story and have the feelings you would if you were in the situations presented to the characters.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fantasy novel; age is not a barrier as young and old will enjoy it. It is refreshing to read about fresh new scenarios and not the same old vampires or werewolves running around. I am sure after you read The Conduit and Embrace, you will be as excited for the next book as I am.
If you are on the fence about buying this book, do yourself a favor and just do it. You will wonder why you waited so long to do so.
First, this is one of the best series that I have read in a while! The second book is even better than the first one! I'm just in love with the series and am excited and anticipatingly waiting the next book Sacrifice. The characters and their dialogue play off one another perfectly. I can't say enough about how I love this book or this series!
The story flows great from the first book to the second. This is the continuation of Celeste's story of being the conduit of the Gryphon and how she is learning to cope with life and being a heroine. We meet new yummy characters: Caleb and Rowan. We also meet a rag tag bunch of dark army dweebs known as the Dark Army Glee Club, loved them! Will Celeste embrace her calling and her life? Will she meet a yummy man too good for her to be real? Does everyone have secrets and extracurricular motives behind what they do? Who is in charge of the Dark Army since Barnabus is gone? I give it a 5 star since that's all they will allow :) I would give more if they let me! NEED TO READ BOOK!
Okay, so this is not my usual way to start a review, but this was my immediate response to Stacey Rourke , and I mean immediately after completing Embrace. Maybe it will suffice as a review as it sums up my immediate response? But, hey, what fun would that be, so I'll add just a wee bit more!
Embrace, just like The Conduit, held my attention from the very first page all the way through to the end. There was no secret skimming ahead. I allowed myself to savour ever word, every description, every thought that Stacey put into Celeste's head. And, I enjoyed every minute of it.
We learn that little bit more about the characters and are introduced to some amazing new characters along the way, who no doubt will feature pretty heavily in book three, Sacrifice. I loved the intensity of the relationships, the constant twists and turns as well as the moments that I very loudly went 'ah ha' (there were several!). What I additionally reveled in, was Stacey's wonderful wit that is evident through her characters; it truly helps to shape and personalise her characters, and offered an element of realism which I always marvel at considering the genre.
And finally the ending! You will have read my quoted message involving rocks and kisses. I wish I could say I was exaggerating; however, I am not. A fellow blogger recently referred to Stacey as the 'Cliff-hanger Queen', and indeed she is; however, I now, and from this moment forth will fondly refer to the wonderful Stacey Rourke by the appropriate title 'Evil Genius'. There are no more words...
...Okay just a few more...I wholeheartedly and without reservation rate Embrace 5 twinkling stars!
