The Garrett family are at the final battle. After loosing so much they go on and make new alliances. There is going to be a new member of the family on the way. Rowan is sneaking his way back up to Celeste. Alec is coming to his end and Celeste has to choose between killing the demon inside Alec or using the discus to kill the Dark army. Celeste has to fight the Dark army's minions to get to the Dark Queen. Will Celeste embrace herself as the Gryphon? Who will win this great battle? I loved this book series more than any series ever. The battle at the end of this book is so EPIC that you will want more. Stacey Rourke is a great author and I hope to read some of her other books and even reread this series. Thank you Stacey Rourke for bringing all of your characters to life and making the battle so great. If I could give this more than five stars I would.

I received this ARC to give an honest review. Man oh man I do not even want to write this review as I know I may end up giving up some spoilers lol. In Book 4 of this amazing series we continue where book 3 Sacrifice left off. The characters in the book are just amazing as before. Each having their own witty comments and humor within almost everything that comes out of their mouth. Grams is still one of my favorite characters (besides the hot Rowan and Caleb). There are some secrets that come up and boy is Celeste madder than dirt. Not only that the council has turned their back on them unless Celeste does what they want. Go figure don't they know Celeste has a mind of her own. There is a major fight scene like no other that has the other fight scenes in the previous books look like a cake walk. There is so much going on with this book that the way the ending is written I do wonder if there could be a book five in the works? Maybe? Fingers are crossed. Two of many of my favorite parts within the book are as followed: "The old people are the only ones that brought weapons. Does anyone else find that disturbing?" Keni "The New Adult section broke my fall." "Yikes, now I'm nervous it may have impregnated me in the process." Each character will have you laughing in your own way. Especially The Dark Glee Club (I mean there can not be a book without them in it right?) there is humor, love lost, love found, heart-ache, a sense of compassion for the countess and so much more. Celeste has to make decisions and they may or may not be for the best. You just have to read to find that out. If you have not read the other books in this series I highly suggest you get busy reading them so you can start this book. You will not be disappointed!

This is the 4th book in the Gryphon Series. Stacey has done it again. This book will make you laugh, cry, shout and anything else you can imagine. NO SPOILERS here but would definitely receommend this book as well as the others in this series to everyone. Thank you Ms. Rourke for another great book - oh yeah loved the football field scene and as always Grams is a hoot

Stacey Rourke has done it again with Ascension. This is an amazing book that I enjoyed from beginning to end and could not put down once I started. Ascension moved along at a great pace from beginning to end, had characters that you fell in love with and an awesome story. Stacey Rourke is an amazing author and I cannot wait to see what the future holds.

I missed the Garrett clan and was gloriously happy to receive an ARC of this book but all it did was whet my appetite. I lost count of the twists in this book. I don't even know where to begin. How can I tell you how great this book is without giving anything away? This one had me wondering if I might be bi polar. I'm still not convinced that I'm not. One minute I was jumping up and down with joy and the next I was fighting tears. A few more pages and my mouth was hanging open in shock. Did I mention that Stacey Rourke can write a kick butt book? I NEED the next book pronto! The ending has left me with TONS of questions and want them answered NOW! I wonder if I could bribe Mrs. Rourke with a little rum?  Why should you read this book? Well, because this book has it all..... Action.... check Drama.... check Twists..... double check! A hint of romance... check Humor.... Check! And if that isn't enough to convince you, did I mention there is a super sexy pirate and gorgeous Irishman involved?  I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

Were do I begin? For starters if you haven't read the first 3 books you need to stop reading buy them ALL - NOW! In the 4th installment of the Gryphon series Celeste is still longing for her handsome Irishman Caleb. Just when she's getting ready to pay her respect to her fallen friend, Rowan walks back into her life, ready to stand by her side till the end. Once she arrives on the Spirit Plane with her loved ones, Celeste is slapped with a shocking truth. As the story begins to unfold, will it be to much for her to handle? When Celeste gets a glimpse of the past and learns why the Countess is so full of hate, especially for the Gryphon, will it change how she views the Countess? With Gainesboro come under attack, Celeste bans together with some unlikely allies, including the Dark Army Glee Club members but has her family left her to fight this one on her own? Will Celeste be able to defeat the Countess or has her luck finally ran out? As with every other book in the Gryphon series there are so many twist, turns, ups, downs, laughs and tears. Stacey has a natural ability to write in a way that pulls you in from the first words and keeps you entangled in the story until the very last mark on the page. You certainly won't regret buying Ascension. My only advice - grab your favorite drink, get comfy and make sure you won't have any interruptions for a few hours as you get lost in another fantastic book from Stacey! I received a complimentary copy of the book for my honest opinion.

"WOW" Ascension is the 4th installment in the Gryphon Series by Stacey Rourke and I laughed, got teary eyed, mad and used the "What the Heck?" several times reading this book. I absolutely love the way Stacey has written the characters and the fluidity they have grown. As always Celeste, Gabe and Keni are always entertaining along with Grams who kept me laughing with her antics. My favorite part was at the Football field(No Spoilers) and how they all pulled together. Loved seeing what else Stacey had going for Celeste, Caleb and Rowan. I stayed up late reading this and I am glad I did so, because it was worth every word. Thanks for more excitement and laughs love and craziness Stacey. I completely recommend Ascension.

Twists and turns - yes, those are the words I would use to describe the plot of Stacey Rourke’s newest masterpiece. Our hero, Celeste, is faced with gut-wrenching decisions that could turn her against everyone she was chosen by the Gryphon to protect. Throughout the story, I found myself wrestling with the same emotions as Celeste - trying to decide where my allegiances would fall. Mrs. Rourke certainly has a knack for engaging her readers! I had to force myself to take a break during one of the most action-packed scenes because I realized it was 5:30 in the morning and I had not been to sleep! The cliff-hanger ending has me anxiously awaiting the next installment of The Gryphon Series....it cannot arrive fast enough!

You do not want to miss reading Ascension if you have read the first three in the series Stacey continues with her witty remarks for the Garrett clan and has you laughing one minute and on the edge of your seat thru the whole book. Poor Celeste cannot even get a break while mourning Sophie's death her life comes crashing again as people she did not think she would ever see again in her life as this causes a split in the family and the Countess still after Celeste. Will they come together and fight or will the betrayals be to deep? I am looking forward to the next book and they way Ascension ended and the teaser into the next book I hope it is not a long wait.

Stacey Rourke Ascension Gryphon Series #4 It feels like I’ve been patiently waiting for this book forever, and now I’ve read it I can honestly say it was worth the wait. This series is one that I will read over and over again, and I’m not sure I could ever get enough of the characters. Everyone is present for a star performance (incl. the Dark Army Glee Club and Grams), and books 1 – 3 have been leading up to this point, where the final battle is coming and it’s all or nothing. There are some amazing twists which kept me gripped, which isn’t hard taking into account the writing style, humour, action, drama and emotional turmoil contained within the pages (ok, this pretty much covers everything but nothing I could say will get across how great the series is). Whether your Team Caleb or Team Rowan (damn, two book boyfriends in one book), the author has played it well and I definitely didn’t see the ending coming. This is a series I would highly recommend reading. I received an e-copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
