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.
4.5* out of 5*
Sacrifice is the third book in the Gryphon series and gives us plenty more of what we have come to expect: action and snarky humour. But that’s not all—Celeste has a seriously difficult decision to make. Without spoiling anything, I really expected that there would be a way around it, but I should have known better—if there’s one thing I have learnt about the author from the three books of hers that I have read so far, it’s that she keeps the surprises coming. Things are never predictable, and for that I thank Stacey Rourke!
With a wedding to organise, the family has its work cut out. With demons where the Garretts least expect them to be, nothing is straightforward for the superheroes. In the end, however, help comes from the most unlikely source—and from a previously mysterious character who gets more time in the limelight in this book.
This book ends, as the others do, with a huge cliffhanger, and sadly the next book in the series isn’t out yet! So I’ll be waiting eagerly for the next instalment of the Gryphon series to find out what comes next for the Garrett family. This comes highly recommended, just like the two books preceding it in the series.
