Gryphon Series by Stacey Rourke Cover Reveal

We are so excited to be a part of this wonderful reveal!  In the last year we have been awed by the exploits of Celeste and her siblings, as told by Stacey Rourke in her novels, The Gryphon Series.  From The Conduit, to the Award winning Embrace,  to The Sidekick Chronicles, Sacrifice, and The Sidekick Chronicles Volume II: A Pirate's Tale, we have been swept along into Celeste's world of action, adventure, family, love, and snark.  With the latest addition, Ascension, coming out later this year, we didn't believe that things could get any better.  For once, I am glad to say that we were wrong.  The covers for the series that you see here are absolutely fantastic and elevate the series to whole new level.  Our hope is that you enjoy the new covers as much as we do, and if you haven't had a chance to check out the series, then now is a great time before Ascension releases!  Enjoy!

The Conduit



And coming soon, Ascension!


From best selling and award winning author Stacey Rourke comes the heart-pounding continuation of the acclaimed Gryphon Series.
The turning point of the Gryphon saga is at hand …
Battle looms. Three unstoppable forces prepare to clash in a colossal explosion that could wipe Gainesboro off the map. Fate and sacred calling have landed nineteen year old Celeste Garrett in the middle with nowhere to run.
Her trust wavers as she uncovers dark secrets of the Council, powerful enough to test her loyalty and turn her against those she swore to protect. Playing to the longing of her heart, a malevolent enemy uses her weakness against her to form an alliance.

With the trumpets of war about to sound, which side will the Conduit choose, and who will be left standing?


Author of the Laugh-out Loud Gryphon Series and the nonfiction book I'm Not Crazy I'm on Lupron; a Journey Through Infertility.
