Very entertaining! This was definitely better than book 1. This one ended up being a can't put it down read, with much better flow. There were a lot of editing errors that bogged down the flow a bit. I stayed up way later than I should have, trying to get thru the book. The characters are developing/evolving, with a lot of snarky attitude thrown in. The sibling dynamics are mostly the same, with a bit of anger/jealousy/rivalry/angst thrown into the mix. An unexpected romance comes into play as well (that one really took me by surprise). The subtle humor is great (you're grinning while reading kind of humor), I much prefer to laugh than to cry when I read. So far, the series is great, definitely not predictable, & well worth reading.
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 I need to take the time to say that I am so so so excited about mega sexy Caleb and smoldering, bad boy/demon Rowan. Prrrr...I am in love, with BOTH. They are beyond words and just delectable male specimens that need further attention. *sigh
Embrace had everything I loved from The Conduit and so much more! Hot new characters, more side splitting humor and an unforgettable story. I am hopelessly addicted to The Gryphon Series!!
Gryphon Series #2
When I first read "Conduit" a few short months ago, I thought this series couldn't get any better. Well, I thought inaccurately-"Conduit" reached a peak, and "Embrace" put me over the top. This is a must-read-in-one-setting novel cause you won't be able to sleep till you finish; the characters, the plotting, the auhor's manipulation of the Supernatural and paranormal, the deliciously immediate suspension of disbelief-and oh! That cliffhanger ending! I wanted to jump up and shout, "No! Don't end it here!! Give me more!!" I swear I tried to turn the page at the end of the ebook, just to find out what's next! <laugh>
Celeste, her sister Kendall, and brother Gabriel moved to a small town near Nashville to live with their Grams while their mother, Julia, sells their Michigan home. Losing their Dad two years earlier and very unexpectedly have carved deep grief lines in all their hearts. Newly discovering that Celeste is the "chosen one," the Conduit of the Supernatural entity the Gryphon, upended all of their lives once again. Kendall is the healer and shield, Gabe is the protector (and a lion shapeshifter now).
As the Conduit, Celeste must defeat minions of the Underground's Dark Army of demons; but this is a neverending battle. The flames really intensify in this entry, adding the question of Alec, a young journalist with whom Celeste became enamoured during "Conduit," who has undergone some soul-stultifying transformations; the hot Irishman Caleb; and the perhaps equally hot (and inspirationally gifted) pirate Rowan. Just when you thought it couldn't get any more dangerous, and author Stacey Rourke couldn't dig any deeper to yank your heartstrings and yank you to edge of your seat in throat-gripping suspense: the danger magnifies a thousandfold and Ms. Rourke delivers even more strongly! Do not miss this special book, or this series. And Ms. Rourke, please, please bring us the third in the series very quickly!
