Book Description

 September 11, 2012
Celeste isn't the only member of the Garrett family whose life changed when destiny called. Every sidekick has their tale and in this Gryphon Series short the spotlight is turned on Kendall, Grams and even Gabe. Get an inside look at the hilarious stress that goes along with being a...sidekick. 

Sidekicks...ya can't live with 'em and you'd probably die horribly without 'em.

My Review

Ahem, well....well....well.....What are we going to do with you Stacey? We all think, OH YAY we have something to hold us over until Embrace comes out in November. So, with that thought in mind we happily start reading..... CURSE YOU woman, CURSE YOU...........You just teased us even more watching the days slowly tick by! In a good way, yes. Are we still giving you the evil eye for yet another cliffhanger?!?!?! Darn right we are! Do you feel the glare??? Feel it!!!!!!   This novella is sure to have you laughing out loud just like The Conduit and Embrace did! Even though The Sidekick Chronicles is a short story it's slammed pack full of events! Someone get's the crap scared out of them by the Garrett siblings due to, well......(like I was going to tell you) , someone get's into a fight with a feathered creature (this part had me rolling) and someone get's a marriage proposal! Yep, there is a wedding in the future and you find out who's!!!!!!! Do you think you know?????? May not be whom you think! Let's not forget Grams! That woman is a hoot and she does not disappoint this go around either!  This novella was great! Getting to view bits into each of the Garrett's was a wonderful move for Stacey and a real treat for us readers! Grab your copy today and don't be scared to embrace your inner Gryphon!
5 Stars!

Book Description (Book one)

 March 4, 2012

All 18-year-old Celeste Garrett wants is to head off to college and make those fun, yet ill-advised, choices college kids are known for. And maybe to spend some time with the hot cameraman she just met. Instead, because of a pact her ancestors made in the 17th century with a mythical creature, she has to save the world.

While normal kids are slamming energy drinks and cramming for exams, Celeste will get her adrenaline rush fighting a fire breathing dragon. She wants to meet friends in the quad to exchange lecture notes, but first she must exchange blows with a shapeshifting demon on the rooftop. Life isn’t always fair for a superhero, but at least she doesn’t have to do it alone. With her brother and sister as sidekicks, they alternate between saving lives and getting on each others’ nerves. Together the trio encounters unspeakable odds, mystical forces and comes face-to-face with an image that will haunt them forever—their grandmother in a leopard print bikini.

"Okay, little side note here. If a psychopathic killer asks if you want to see a trick, say no. That’s the smart thing to do. I, on the other hand, responded, 'Bring it'."

Book Description
 May 3, 2012
Whether she likes it or not, eighteen year old Celeste Garrett has come to terms with being the Chosen One. She knew having a “normal life” would be tricky, between intense training sessions and epic demonic battles, but she didn’t know at what cost it would come. That is, until a dear friend is harmed by the malicious forces hunting her.

Now, she’d like nothing more than to retreat into a hermit lifestyle to prevent anyone else from getting hurt. But startling revelations, amazing new abilities, and mortifying moments in front of insanely hot guys won’t allow time for that. Soon, Celeste finds herself surrounded by darkness and wondering who she can trust—if anyone.
