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 Jell-o 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.


I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Sacrifice is the third book in the Gryphon series. At first I thought I wasn’t going to like Sacrifice as much as the first two books, Conduit and Embrace, because there was so much fighting at the beginning. Boy, was I wrong!

There are unexpected twists in this book, plenty of action, and so much heartbreak. With so much going on, there were still times that I laughed out loud, such as when someone called gnomes “talking lawn ornaments.” 

The end of Sacrifice is intriguing and I’m glad I have the next book to read because I can’t wait to find out what happens next. I definitely recommend Sacrifice, a young adult fantasy and so much more.
