Meet the character, Grams from the Gryphon series by Stacey Rourke!

Today, we meet one of my favorite characters of The Gryphon Series by Stacey Rourke! Meet Grams!!!

She shortens her muumuu’s to show a little more leg, favors anything animal print, and trolls the community pool just to enjoy the lifeguard eye candy. She is … Grams. While the Garrett siblings are embracing their new lives as heroes they have her behind them, rooting them on with her cowbell in hand.
Her grandkids may be the warriors to mankind, but she will make sure they toe the line; putting family first, respecting each other and her, and of course making it home before curfew. Thrust into a world she doesn’t completely understand she will be their voice of reason in this storm of chaos. 

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

First things first...those who've followed my blog know well that I am a cover fanatic. So, let's talk about this cover, shall we.................*Microphone please* Thank-you! OMG! I LOVE IT! There is so much put into this cover I just can't even begin to tell you! The uniqueness of it is amazing! No models that you've seen on 20 other books. No looking at it and saying "Hey, I've seen a cover like that on another book". This cover is on it's own and matches the book you are about to read! It's first hand sketched by Crystal Ord and then turned into a cover with added designs by artist K.C Designs. (Find her Facebook page HERE)...Uh huh, safe to say by far one of my favorites! Kudo's to Stacey Rourke for making her covers as unique as her writing style....*O.o* Writing style, oh yes, that's what I'm suppose to be talking about huh? The actual words inside...Ooopppss....Okay, here we go..........

Where on earth do I even start! Oh, I know where...My love for this series! (Good place, huh).
I have been a huge fan of this series since I got my hands on her first book The Conduit! I had never actually LOL'ed while reading a book. My family kept looking at me like I was nuts! (okay, they may not be to far off on that one, but shhh...don't tell them I said that) Embrace, book two had me doing the same thing, The Sidekick Chronicle a Novella as well (The swan scene..OMG..) Now bring in Sacrifice............. Darn you, Stacey! Darn you! You changed up on me! Instead of LOL'ing constantly I had to add tissues! Yes, I said add cause it's still a hilarious read but there are some moments you need those tissues!  Someone is suppose to be getting married! (I almost gave away who and had to delete..Ooooppssyyyy) I say suppose to be because well.....that darn Dark Army is at it again..They just won't give those Garrett's a break!(Not that we want them to) but anyhooooo..........The dress fitting kind of gets a bit buggy, Kendall does some things WAY out of character ( make you want to smack her upside the head and knock sense in to her kind of stuff), The bachelorette party get's some...interesting visitors, we have a bit of heartache (okay, a lot), our wonderful gnome's true intentions are revealed and we develop an issue to where we actually have to decide..are we team Rowan or Caleb!! I know right?!?!?!?! I can't believe this! How do you chose that!!!! HOW?!?!?! Why did you do that to me, Stacey? WHY?  

Needless to say I loved all the event's in Sacrifice! Poor Celeste..Her brothers relationship,her Grams..Jello shots, her mom and Kendall a stripper all in one scene! HAHAHA! Priceless! Just, just priceless.... I can't even express to you how much you need to read this book or series if you have yet to read the first ones! You get all of it in Sacrifice! Humor, pain, action, sorrow, love, rising love, deception  shock.....I mean really! How can you not want to read this!

This series is great for all ages! I had NEVER been able to get my teenage daughter to sit down and read a series without forcing her until The Gryphon Series! After reading The Conduit she came to me begging me to give her the rest of the books...Now, she patiently (*shakes head*, not so patiently) awaits book four! Almost as patiently (crosses fingers behind back) as me!!!!!

Way to go Stacey, on another great book! (Screams, can I have book four now!!)

Buy Sacrifice HERE!! Don't argue, just do it!

Grab the series!
