I tried several times to read this book. Unfortunately, I just couldn't seem to get into it. I was confused from the very beginning. I couldn't even picture the setting. All I could think was, this would probably make a great movie. If someone else could make it come to life for me, I would probably really enjoy it. I like the concept, but the writing was stilted and didn't flow for me. I am not saying others wouldn't love this book, but for me, it isn't my kind of book.

This was a really fun read. A lion, an "angel", and dragon...Oh My! Rourke knows what makes a great story. A little action, a dash of romance, pepper with great twists and add lots of snark. Then BAM! Just like Emeril, a cuisine that will sate your YA hunger! I didn't want to put it down. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next with this rag tag team of "super heroes". The pace was just right. Everything moved along nicely. I loved both the main and secondary characters. And what an ending! I cannot wait to read Embrace, the second book in the Gryphon series!
My favorite quotes from The Conduit:
" I mean, you just made and angel cry. I can't say for sure that you'll go to hell for that kind of thing, but it doesn't look good."
"Keep telling yourself that. I'm sure you'll find it very reassuring while you're burning in the eternal hell fires, right next to the puppy kickers."
"Celeste is going to go get herself a boyfriend today."
"The grocery store. They keep them in the meat department right next to the tenderloin."

I have so much trouble writing a review for a book that I like this much. I just want to scream, "READ IT NOW!" But since that doesn't really help you much, I guess I should give it a try.
Who do you trust when you're not sure you can trust anyone? Lots of exciting things happening in this one. So many twists and turns, I wasn't sure if I was sitting or standing! I was second guessing everyone in Celeste's life. Great new characters! I am totally in love with Caleb, and I even like Rowan! This book was even better than the first! Great Job Stacey!!!! Keep 'em comin'!

A new and exciting paranormal series. The premise for this book is very unique along with some other aspects of the story. Hailey works at a dairy farm milking chinchillas! I really like the heroine. She is smart, sassy and full of snark. I found myself smiling and chuckling while reading this book. The Coursodon are "people" from another dimension, and while it doesn't give a lot of back story as to what they really are, I didn't feel like I missed anything. The book flowed really well and I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. There is some light romance, but that is not the main focus of the story. There was one or two mistakes in editing, but believe me, it doesn't take away from the story! I really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to the next!

A thrilling read. Laine is such a strong heroine. She's smart, brave and good with a gun. I fell in love with her immediately! Lots of heart pounding action. At one point, I thought I had it all figured out, only to be slapped with a great twist I never saw coming. All of the characters were great. I loved the secondary characters just as much as the main characters. Jack was great as Laine's partner in crime/love interest, but I have to admit, Bear is my favorite. I would love to know more about him. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes to read a action or romance!
