 Celeste Garrett has finally found a happy balance in her life as the Chosen One, thanks in large part to a certain hunky Irishman. But if there’s any lesson she should heed since receiving her calling it’s that everything can change in the blink of an eye. Soon a terrible new threat, unlike anything she’s ever encountered, causes her to make a gut-wrenching choice that will strip her of someone she holds dear. As much as she’d like to have a pity party for one, there’s no time for that now because wedding bells are ringing in Gainesboro! In between dress fittings and rehearsal dinners Celeste will have to fend off attacking demons and leering pirates. As if the Dark Army wasn’t scary enough our heroine is faced with the horrifying trauma of attending a bachelorette party with her mom and watching Grams do Jello shots. Is a walk down the aisle even possible for a member of the Garrett family when the Dark Army is out to destroy them? More importantly, will the Dark Army Glee Club sing at the reception? Raise your glass to the happy couple, and get ready for a wedding…Conduit-style.

My Review

Demons and spiders and gnomes, does it get any creepier?! Celeste really goes through some things after losing not one but two important people in her life. Cue tears!  Rowan really steps up and shows another side of himself! Keni, the fashonista, goes goth and Grams doing jello shots while stuffing singles into a strippers speedo, really, what more do we need?  Well, get ready for some major things to happen. New threats surface everyday. Sacrifice was funny, heart crushing and thrilling all at the same time. And it ends with a heck of a cliff hanger. The kind that makes you wanna throw yourself on the floor kicking and screaming! I CANNOT WAIT to find out what comes next! This is the best so far in the Gryphon Series!

Celeste Garrett was a stereotypical middle child; often overlooked thanks to her superjock big brother, and shining star little sister. Her goal was to go off to college and turn her love of sketching into a career as an art teacher. But fate intervened—as it so enjoys doing. Soon, Celeste’s thoughts are no longer her own. Her body is now a receptacle of a mythical creature known as a gryphon. He will use her as his warrior on earth to defeat a demonic army hell bent on tearing down the gates to the Spirit World. Suddenly, this awkward teen finds herself capable of the impossible. With her brother and sister by her side they must fend off wave after wave of demonic onslaught.
Is a normal life even possible in the midst of all this? Not likely when your crush turns out to be infected with Titan blood—a malicious form of demon that can control the elements. Not to mention that randy pirate that can control her mind with a simple touch that keeps trailing her. Oh and don’t forget the Dark Army Glee Club—sure, they’re evil but they can harmonize like no other.
Somehow Celeste finds a peaceful calm in the storm of her life but even that is short lived. If there’s any lesson she should heed since receiving her calling it’s that everything can change in the blink of an eye. Soon a terrible new threat, unlike anything she’s ever encountered, causes her to make a gut-wrenching choice that will strip her of someone she holds dear.
Will Celeste ever find happiness and achieve her dream of a normal existence? Or will those hunting her claim their spoils?
