Evalle’s relationship with the Skinwalker Storm becomes even more complicated when the witch doctor he’s been hunting begins to stalk Evalle. With death breathing down her neck, Evalle is forced to embrace her destiny . . . but at what price?

A very involved continuation of the story of the Beladors. If you haven't the previous books. you may have a little trouble following the story line. It's very complicated, but worth every minute .

Rise of the Gryphon by Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love is the 4th book in their Belador series. I love Evalle, who is one of my favorite kickass heroines. Throughout this series, we have suffered with Evalle, as the Goddess Macha continues to push her to the brink, not to mention Sen, who is always looking to destroy her. Evalle has always been loyal to the Beladors; constantly putting her life on the line, and yet she is not fully appreciated. Because she is an Alterant, she is always threatened to lose her freedom with imprisonment. WILL EVALLE EVER BE TOTALLY FREE?? Since this is an early review, I will stay away from spoilers, but still try to give you an idea about this book. In Rise of the Gryphon, Evalle is ordered by Macha to find Alterants and bring them to her before the Medb gets them, but she only has a few days. Such love for someone who just saved them. Storm, who I also have grown to love, is with Evalle, as they search for Tristan & the Alterants. Storm makes himself perfectly clear to Evalle….he loves her. He will do anything to protect and save Evalle. Does he?? Only time will tell. The evil Queen Flaevynn is still the major villain in this series, as she leads the Medb in a plot to destroy the Beladors. Rivaling “Mommy Dearest”, Flaevynn treats her daughter Kizira worse then an enemy. So much so, that you find yourself feeling sympathy for Kizira, who has been a thorn against the Beladors. But is Kizira truly bad, since she is being compelled by her mother to hurt the Beladors, or is she really in love with Quinn? The focus of this story is can Evalle find Tristan and all the Alterants, before the Medb take them? Evalle and Storm will travel to participate in the Achilles Beast Championship, which is a fight to the death; with the winners (all Alterants), then joining Medb, in an offer they cannot refuse. It is up to Evalle to find a way to stop Medb, rescue the Alterants, and help save Brina and the Beladors. Every book in this series is great, but Rise of the Gryphon is the best one so far. This was such an exciting adventure, filled with tension, bloody fights, various beasts, betrayals, danger, and so many moments you feared for your heroine. Without giving any spoilers, there was a wonderful part that we have been waiting for. There was also another part of the book that had me very sad, surprisingly so. When you read this book, you will know what I am talking about. So many questions were answered: Why is Evalle so wanted by the Medb? Does Kizira really care about Quinn? What kind of powers does Lanna have? Will Storm and Evalle finally come together? Will we ever stop loving Feenix, our cute lovable gargoyle…….nah forget that, never happen. I want more Feenix. Rise of the Gryphon was non stop action all the way. The ending, another major battle, was totally awesome; you never knew what was coming next. There were so many surprises and twists that I sat at the edge of my seat absorbing it all and then letting the shocks wear off. As I said earlier, so many questions were answered. and so many more new ones opened up. I loved this book so much, that when the last page came, I kept looking for more, thinking there must be missing pages. Sigh. Now I have to wait a year. I will end by saying I love Evalle; love the Kenyon/Love duo; love love the Belador series. Rise of the Gryphon is great. If you have not read this series, once again, what are you waiting for?

I love Evalle and she kicks but as always in this latest book. Things heat up between her and Storm and she becomes even more powerful. Again, I am left yearning for the next book already.

Throughout the first three books of this series Alterant Evalle has proven herself time and again to the Beladors, the Tribunal and to Macha.  In this installment Evalle’s honor and loyalties will be stretched to the point she may just break.  While trying to honor her agreement to Macha to get Alterants recognized Evalle is put in a position at odds with the Beladors.  What is a girl to do but keep on keeping on and try to do her best and what is right.  The back cover of this book promised answers and you get some but they only create more questions.  This is what this pair of authors does best.  Action, adventure, mystery, and a touch of romance.  I can’t wait for the next installment.

Beladors Book Four When Evalle and Storm stumble upon a beast fighting ring in the mountains while searching for a witch with information they need, the two enter the fight and gain entry into an even bigger event. The Beladors and VIPER are forbidden from entering the next fight, but Evalle is on a mission for Macha that cannot be ignored. She must bring back all of the Alterants from the fight or she will forfeit her deal with the goddess. If you're looking for a story where the punches just keep on rolling and answers to series-long questions are given, this is the book for you!
