Review of The Sidekick Chronicles by Stacey Rourke!


The Sidekick Chronicles by Stacey Rourke is the most recent addition to the Gryphon series, set up as a kind of in between novella.  The Sidekick Chronicles gives us the unique perspective of events from Celeste’s sister, brother, and Grams.  It picks up where Embrace left off, cluing us into some events that are coming up when the 3rd full length novel, Sacrifice, is released. 

Kendall’s story is about one the best and worst days of her life, thus far.  When betrayal stabs deep, she pushes it off while being supported by her loving, all be it, slightly odd family.  Grams’ story reflects how she feels about her grandbabies being ‘superheroes’ while letting us into her thoughts on events that occurred in Embrace and since then.  Gabe tries to surprise someone, and while he does manage to scare the object of his attentions, surprise comes with a large dose of happiness.
All of these tidbits are enclosed in the novella, though while it may be short, still leaves the reader clamoring for more while they hoot and howl with laughter.  I spent the better part of my time reading this book snickering at my computer screen, visualizing each scenario as it happened, and could very well picture their expressions as I have become acquainted with each character in the previous novels. 

As always, Stacey Rourke delivers a tale that will have her readers in stitches while they empathize with the characters.  Celeste, Gabe, Kendall, and Grams as well as the other characters have become almost like family to me, and I can’t wait for Sacrifice to be released!  Check out the novella, and I promise, you won’t be disappointed, unless of course you haven’t read the other two books, in which case I say to you go get those too.  If you have a sense of humor and enjoy the paranormal genre, then this series is for you!  Happy Reading Everyone!
