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 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!!
