Smashwords book reviews by AC Wright
- The Conduit
on July 23, 2012
I have received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I'd like to start by saying I throroughly enjoyed this book. I dare say I could see a bit of myself in the main character of this wonderful story as I'm sure many other readers could as well. Celeste is an average every day young woman that only wants to go to college and fulfill her life's dream of becoming an art teacher. She is also a middle child of two other siblings, Gabe and Kendall, that she feels have a much better chance at life goals than she does. She feels a bit left out at times due to Gabe, her older brother, being the football star and Kendall, her younger sister, being a beautiful cheerleader, actress and all together perfect in every way including looks. They have all suffered from the loss of their father which turns their life around completely. Gabe, loses his football scholarship, Kendall takes a break from acting and cheering and Celeste drops out of art school all to help take care of things after their tragedy.
After several home break-ins their mother sends them to live with their sassy and hip grandmother in a small town in Tennessee. This is not their idea of living, but they make the best of it while their mother sells the house back home and moves to Tennessee with them. While there a few unexpected things happen, like finding out you are the 'chosen one' to help save the world from some nasty evil character that wants to kill you so he can take over. Yep, lots of fun things make this book extremely funny, exciting and hard to put down. So, before you read it grab your popcorn, nachos and soda and get ready for a thrilling ride.

I recieved this book as a gift in return of an honest review.
I must start of with kudos to Stacey Rourke. It just gets better and better! If the last book, The Conduit, wasn't exciting enough she came back and made Embrace even more exciting along with romantically challenged and added some humor to top it off. This was the perfect continuation for her series. It so many twists and turns it made my head spin while I physically laughed from the humanity of the whole situation that was placed before the main characters, Celeste, Gabe and Kendall. Grams has now caught on to the whole "super hero" thing and is the trio's biggest fan. There are some unexpected romances here that will knock your socks off and an ending that will cause you mouth to drop and make to twitch with excitement as you wait to read the next book in the series. Unfortunately, THAT book won't be out until November 2012. I can't wait to read it and will count down the days until it has been made available. If you haven't read The Conduit yet, go read it and then top it off with Embrace. You'll be glad you did!

I recieved this book from the author in return of an honest review.
I would like to begin by saying this wasn't at all what I expected it to be...it was much better. The plot itself was wonderful with a historical setting full of villiages, horse drawn carriages, forests and cabins. I loved the the whimsiness of the main character, Angelica. She was quick, fiery and full of spirit. It wasn't the normal vampire romance that you would expect. It had a youthfulness about it playing through the vampire, Angelica, and her friend, William, that just so happens to be a newly turned ghost. Angelica teaches William the ropes of the ghost world, but in the end it is William that Angelica depends upon. Although she has her faithful companion and protector, Michael (also a vampire), William becomes her closest friend. This story is a MUST READ and gives you just enough to get you hooked on 'The Dark Gifts' series. Job well done, Willow Cross.
