Smashwords book reviews by Stephanie Ruppert

  • The Conduit on Feb. 04, 2013

    I have to say that the first few pages had me thinking "do I really want to read this?" But I kept on going, and page by page, I became entranced in the story. Becoming one with the Characters. Feeling their emotions, transformations, love and protection of not only eachother but also the ones they love. Meet 3 siblings, Celeste, Gabe and Keni. Having just left their home to go and live with their Grams, change takes a turn when Celeste finds a statue of a Gryphon in her Grams' garage, pricks her finger and is never the same after that. Life changes, she and her siblings meet Barnabus. This is more than Good meets Evil, or paranormal, it's about family,love and protection. What doesn't tear you apart, brings you that much closer. You can't stop from feeling the warmth,love between these 3. Even going through their training with their Guide, the fight with evil... Their love for each other and those around them grows. I must say this book did not disappoint in any way shape or form.. Even the epilogue makes you laugh... You'll have to read to find out the rest, and TRUST me, you WON'T be disappointed.. I Wasn't...

    I won this book in a contest... What is life like for a teenager running? Running from what? Life, home, school... Everything! Meet Andy, 17 year old whose life is anything but typical, or is it. Andy and her siblings come from a broken family, her parents divorced nd remarried. Talking about the ugly step parent syndrome! Andy truly thinks that she has them! She tells her mom and dad what their spouses have been doing to her and well they don't believe her. She devises a plan to get away for Nine Days. She tells no one not even Jase, her best friend who together at school are known as Pete and Repeat. Off she goes. What does she expect to find in these Nine Days, where does she go? Paradise! Yes that is where she goes. She has to answer to no one, falls in more ways than one and comes back a changed person. You can run, but you can’t hide. Much to her surprise her “boy crush” and his family show up where she is. Called out, now everyone knows, what is she going to do? She’s falling in love. The monk seals and the dolphins are her escape, her passion. So is someone else? Now it’s time to go home, leave what she feels like she belongs and is “home” to her. Are there more problems on the horizon? At least she is safe, finally gets what she wants. This is a book I won in a contest. Thank you H.R. Williams and CONGRATULATIONS on an amazing book. A book that is true to life, reality.
