From bestselling and award winning author Stacey Rourke comes the heart-pounding continuation of the acclaimed Gryphon Series. The turning point of the Gryphon saga is at hand … Battle looms. Three unstoppable forces prepare to clash in a colossal explosion that could wipe Gainesboro off the map. Fate and a sacred calling have landed nineteen year old Celeste Garrett in the middle with nowhere to run. Her trust wavers as she uncovers dark secrets of the Council, powerful enough to test her loyalty and turn her against those she swore to protect. Playing to the longing of her heart, a malevolent enemy uses her weakness against her to form an alliance. With the trumpets of war about to sound, which side will the Conduit choose, and who will be left standing?
I I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
Ascension is the fourth book in the Gryphon series. I really like these books, especially since each one is so different from the others.
Poor Celeste! Not only is the fate of the world depending on her, now she realizes that good vs. evil isn’t so black and white. She has a lot of decisions to make in this book, and the big war that she and her family knew would come finally occurs in Ascension. I mistakenly thought that once the war happened, one side or the other would win and that would be the end of the series. I’m glad I was wrong!
There were a lot of twists in Ascension as well as revelations. I did get confused near the end and I’m still not sure exactly what happened.
If you like young adult fantasy, you’ll love the Gryphon series. I look forward to more Gryphon books in the future. I have grown quite attached to the Garrett clan!
