Now here is what the ladies at Wicked Reads Review Team have to say about it
From best selling 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?
The gang has all be though so much and now one of them is married! And Cee gave up her love to save him and still do her duty. Kendi is back to normal YAY! Got to love her, she sweet and really gives her heart to everyone. Cee has lost the 1st member of her team and it really is hitting her hard. The evil Gnome is gone and I think no one will ever pick on Cee for her fear again. So at this point what can go wrong…Well looks like everything? Everything she believed about why she was chosen, who she really is, and who she serves is turned upside down in the most dramatic fashion possible. What is a young conduit to do? Well she does what no one thought she would and makes her own path. A path that has great cost but in the end well you will have to read the book to see if pays off or not! It was sad to say Goodbye to the Gang. But there journey has ended. This book was the perfect ending I will say that. Another 5 star book for this author.

The Fourth installment of the Gryphon series is an amazing journey filled with SHOCKING plot twists that had me cursing all kinds of unrepeatable words. The Garret family is on their own relying on questionable allies to battle the Countess. Will these acts be in their best interest or will it turn and bite them in the rump? Ascension is filled with action, drama, humor, Strong female characters and an ending to have you clamoring for the next. Ascension is by far the best book in the series and I cannot wait to see in which direction Stacey Rourke, will take this fabulous cast of characters.
I think Stacey Rourke has outdone herself with this one. I thought the second book, Embrace, was my favorite but I was wrong. Ascension is so well written, a page turner for sure. I loved diving deeper into that world, finding more out about the Gryphon, the Dark Army, Celeste and Caleb. I would love to go into so many detail at the end, but that would be a huge spoiler!! All I will say when I read Ascension, I found myself getting sucked into the story. Reading that last sentence was disappointing….disappointing that it was over. This one definitely calls for a re-read!!
First off I would just like to say that this have become one of my favourite series that I have read, but this book is the best of the bunch I enjoyed it so much. I mean where do I start….
Well like all the other books this one starts where the last has finished Celeste has a choice to make trust Barnabus or try to say Alec and get Caleb (swoon) back herself. Oh a Rowen is back also yaay, I love him, Celeste not so much she just wants to punch his face in; you can’t really blame the girl if you have read the last book you will know why. He vows that he will be at her side now no matter what and also to the end. After Sophia’s funeral Celeste, Gabe, Keni and Grams all get quite a shock and Celeste and Gabe walk out which makes them traitors to the cause. They continue to train and the celeste makes a little mistake that brings the battle to the forefront. Will Celeste get her team back? Will everyone survive? More importantly anyone get a happily ever after? Well you will habe to read the book to find out.
I am actually sad to see this series end and I am hoping that Stacey will continue this series in the future (fingers crossed) I have loved every second of this series and every book has truly deserved its five stars that I have awarded J
Ascension is the fourth book in the Gryphon series and has so many shocking (yes, really shocking) twists and turns, I could barely keep up. I liked this book better than Sacrifice mainly because I felt Celeste is finally growing up and taking charge. In prior books, Celeste just accepted her fate and did what she thought she had to do, but not so in Ascension. In the first of many revelations, Celeste finally learns why the Countess is determined to destroy the Gryphon. This revelation and several others all occur within the first third of the book (no spoilers) and finally, Celeste starts to become the heroine I hoped she would be. Although she can’t control fate, and she can’t control all the outside influences, she can control how she deals with her life and how the new revelations affect her and her family. Celeste starts learning to trust her intuition and question her circumstances. Finally, because Celeste begins to realize not everything is as it seems, she learns that right and wrong are not so black and white.
My favorite characters in the first three books were Rowan and Gram, and Ascension has me loving them even more. Gram continues her crazy antics and gave me a few laughs while supporting Celeste in a way only Gram can do. Celeste is still pining away for Caleb, and I feel I know him better in this book, but I’m still hoping Celeste ends up with Rowan. Stacey Rourke made it clear from the beginning that Celeste’s true love is Caleb, but I question it more and more in each book because in my opinion, Rowan’s character seems the better developed character of the two romantic interests (of course, this may be a purposeful development to keep readers confused or it could be as simple as I’m just a sucker for a Scottish accent).
Ascension is a strong continuation in the Gryphon series and ends with a cliffhanger that had me yelling at my kindle. By book 4, many authors are getting stale and repetitive, not so with Stacey Rourke and the Gryphon series. If anything, the further into the series we go, the more intricate the story becomes. I give this book a solid 4 stars and hope Stacey Rourke writes quickly because I can’t wait to see what happens to Celeste, Gabe, Kendall, Gram and of course, Caleb and Rowan.
5 out of 5
What an amazing read! Just when I thought this story couldn’t get better-Celeste and the Gryphon Crew are back in a BIG way! Stacey Rourke continues to out do herself. This story is packed with twists, turns and lots of emotion-I just couldn’t put it down! In true Gryphon form you’re left with a cliffhanger that makes you inpatient for the next installment. You can judge this series by its new covers, as they are awesome! I truly enjoy this series!
This was an excellent continuation of the Gryphon series. In the fourth book, Celeste has grown and continues to learn more about the past history of the Gryphon. There are many sad moments that invite the reader to look at things from a different way as Celeste struggles with deciding what is right and whose side to join. Though it all lies on her shoulders as the Conduit, she learns that she needs to believe in her friends and family and that they are there to help her as well.
I loved how the book had just enough romance to keep the reader wondering, but still frustrating enough because Celeste is in such a position to decide who she wants to be with.
This book had a great deal of action and heartache in it and it brings the reader even further into the world of the Gryphon. It was exciting to see things from the spirit plane and what is awaiting them at the end of their journey.
I especially loved how the book leaves the reader wondering what will happen with Celeste now that the war is over.
Now still on the fence well her is what others have to say
Once again what to follow Stacey for all her work
Comments are always well and rebloging. thank you for sharing in my journey and Stacey’s!
