    One thought on “The Conduit”

    1. 4.5 starsWarning.Potential for injury highFirst, a warning should be givenFor even though by good emotions this review is drivenThe best verse craftsmen I don t really representBut bear with me, the will is present.Once upon a time, in a land far away Celeste Garrett lost her wayBecause she now has to save the worldAnd not have fun and study at college like she thought she would.Even worse for her, she can t do it aloneHer siblings are a necessity and accident prone With new superpowers off she [...]

    2. I will start by saying that I enjoyed the storyline, and this is the only thing saving this book from a lower score The plot was interesting, and kept me wanting to know what happens next The characters were entertaining, and the sibling rivalry humorous The book also started off with action I hate it when an author starts slow The bad Nothing upsets me than an excellent story released before it was ready This book was one of those I had trouble finishing this despite my interest in the story I [...]

    3. Sometimes a book is so good you want to put your kids in daycare all day so you can do nothing but read, well this book was one of those Oh yes it was a I want to read this book and not do anything book I havent come across too many books as original as this The storyline is fresh and new, and nothing I expected Celeste is sarcastically funny and one of those girls you would love to have around on dreary days Add in Kendall, the beautiful, yet full of love sister and Gabe, the hot drool worthy b [...]

    4. A fun, fast, fantasy read I finished this book in less than 24 hours because I could not put it down without finding out what happened next this made for a late night of reading From the relatable characters, to the otherworldly creatures, Rourke nails the YA Fantasy market Overall 4 5 stars I m looking forward to the next book in the series

    5. I really wanted to like this novel Fantasy stuff has been disappointing me lately, but when Stacey Rourke told me at DragonCon that her novel was similar to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I was excited I was hoping for a homage that captured what I love about the show, with its own original touch I didn t get that at all.One of the only ways it was similar to BTVS was in the worldbuilding but not in a good way The problem I ve always had with Buffy s worldbuilding is that Joss Whedon doesn t really s [...]

    6. I have been reading for cough cough well over twenty years now I come across books that I m in love with and books that seem like I m just re reading something I ve already read, even though I haven t Every once in awhile I come across a book that s very different, and those are the ones I will sing my praise The Conduit by Stacey Rourke is that book The comedy in the book is very similar to one of my favorite shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer This book has it all Sarcastic comedy, a little romanc [...]

    7. My inner smart aleck wondered if the all black wardrobe was a necessity to remind themselves they were evil Like if a member of the Dark Army accidentally threw on a powder blue polo shirt they would get confused and book a tee time instead of trying to take over the world I don t even remember how I stumbled upon this book, but I am so glad I did I wish people would pick this up, because it s just an awesome series and deserves every reader it gets The Conduit is kind of an introduction to the [...]

    8. When my fellow author, Stacey Rourke, posted on Facebook she was looking for reviewers for her recently published YA novel, The Conduit, I couldn t resist She had been tweeting and posting messages on Facebook about her book for the few weeks approaching its release, and it looked pretty interesting The timing for me was perfect I had just finished a YA book I had really enjoyed reading and was in the mood to keep the momentum going Talk about momentum The Conduit is full of mystery and is actio [...]

    11. May have slight spoilers.I really enjoyed The Conduit by Stacey Rourke, it literally had me laughing out loud in parts, which had my cat Simba looking at me like I was crazy.In this novel we meet, Cestele, Gabe, and their little sister, Kendall They are making a move to their grandmother s home after a rash of break ins in their old town Soon we are introduced to the main plot of the novel that comes much in the form of, Alaina A spirit guide who has come to well, guide them in the wake of their [...]

    12. Review of The Conduit by Stacey RourkeReviewed by Kimberly Schaaf member of the YATR Review Panel Ok shut the front door I am in love with Stacey Rourke in a totally not sexual or weird sort of way The Conduit has been on my TBR list for some time nowwith SEVERAL of my friends recommending that I just give in and do it already And, man oh man, am I glad that I did Celeste, Gabe, and Kendall are all so easy to connect with I seriously felt like I was watching this really funny and amazing story o [...]

    13. I don t even know how to begin to tell you about this gem It s chocablock full of awesomeness I mean, who wouldn t want to read about Celeste, a chick that meets a golden feathered woman, bumps her head during her escape, gets a ticket to denial, but can all of a sudden feel emotions coming at her like a brick wall Feelings so mammoth that she camps in the cubbyhouse for days Or what about her 20 year old brother Gabe The sporty guy that just grows larger and larger until he s nearly the size of [...]

    14. I loved The Conduit, it is a fast, fun read If I spend twee hours on this book from start to finish I might be exaggerating But I loved the dynamic between the siblings, no malfunctioning familial bonds This family is fairly normal, well apart from the pact and saving the world and fighting demons etc.The one liners and some situations has me in stitches, the dialogue is real and witty and I really liked Celeste and her oh so normal insecurities especially in the beginning of the book.I give thi [...]

    15. I really liked this book and i can not wait to read Embrace and Stacey promised me i would love it and shes not biased at all so i totally take her word for it I really liked Celeste shes like a fictional version of myself heres just some info on the both of us and you draw your own conclusions 1 Celeste is a female wow i too am a female 2 She has bad ass powers i do not UNLESS you take into account the speed in which i can make a tub of cool whip disappear and you know i think that counts 3 She [...]

    16. This book was okay It started off good but then I started to lose interest about half way in I will give it credit for being an unique story However, the characters were mediocre Celeste is the main character in the story and she has two siblings One is an older brother and the other is a younger sister Personally I didn t care for either one The brother was angry a lot and the sister was kind of a pain She was also a little dense too For instance the bad guy was looking for them in this small t [...]

    17. I LOVE THIS BOOK,I don t know why I took so long to read this book The Conduit is a very action packed book and involves three siblings that have a love for each other like siblings should, Gabe, Celest and Kendall are great characters and I truly believe that Stacey has written a great book and I can t wait to read the other books I usually have a problem starting a new book but this was not one hard to begin reading I love all the characters from Celeste to the Grandmother and the Gryphon Than [...]

    18. I read this book as a selection in my Book Club Let me say the writer was very creative with the story, the characters are very well developed and overall the book is highly well written As the plot centers around a family with three teens that hold supernormal powers, I was a bit skeptical about finding it believable That however does not affect the flow of the story and how well the author pulls you in I have since seen previews and cover shots of the other books in the series I think YES

    19. It s been a minute since I ve read something that literally made me laugh out loud Stacey s writing style is very easy to follow I absolutely adore this book The fact that this author stepped outside of the box, making Gryphons COOL Gram, is by far my favorite character She is witty, crazy and super lovable The cliff hanger was well written, and will have you hanging on every last word If you haven t read this book, you re missing out on a total jem

    20. To put simply This was fantastic I can t even.I loved it Song Choice Time Is Running Out by Muse, Murder in the City by the Avett Brothers, Into The Ocean by Blue October First thoughts Seriously, why hadn t anyone told me about this book before I had come across it many of times, with its old cover, and that isn t what turned me away from it no, I just I don t know I was always on the edge of, should I Shouldn t I and then something else would pop up Okay so my advice if you are doing that stop [...]

    21. Review 4 stars The Conduit, Imagine your destiny is already chosen for you , your sister, and brother Centuries ago, between a Gryphon and a human, it was put into motion what was to be and if that wasn t bad enough, the world depends on your survival Facing battles with a demon from the underworld, in the wake of a mighty army headed your way, Hell bent on destroying your blood line Celeste, Kendall and Gabe, are visiting their Grams for the summer Looking to party, find romance, what every nor [...]

    22. Review also posted on Book Lovin Mamas The Conduit is definitely a book I have never come across before It was really a different kind of young adult book that I m used to, but I did like it.Celeste Garrett and her siblings are sent to live with their Grams in Tennessee since their Mom is in Michigan trying to sell their house there All Celeste wants to do when she gets there is head off to her college so she can start working on her degree.But.eade is being told she is destined to the save the [...]

    23. 4.5 When Celeste, her brother Gabe and sister Kendall move in with their Grandma, little do they realise they are about to embark on the biggest adventure of their lives Many, Many moons ago one of their ancestors had made a pact with a mythical creature a Gryphon and promised that no matter what and no matter when, their family would be willing to help when the time comes .well the time is now and the three have no choice but to accept their inflicted destiny whether they are ready for it or no [...]

    24. The Conduit Gryphon Series 1 by Stacey RourkeReviewed by S Bree HighI had been eyeballing this book for awhile Stacey happened to be an author that many friends have recommended So I bought it Still did not get to it, sat on my TBR list This was until the YATR book reading contest Now I am smacking myself up the side of my head, and trying very hard to write the review and not read the second book HELLO I loved it If you had your life chosen for you what would you do Hold on though not just you, [...]

    25. Eighteen year old Celeste Garrett just wants to be like other teenagers go to college, have fun and make bad choices but thanks to a pact made by one of her ancestors in the 17th century to a mystical creature, she has to save the world.I loved this book It is a refreshing change to read about other mythical beings, rather than just the usual suspects vampires, werewolves etc I m not disrespecting the authors of said books, but I ve always been intrigued with the other beings which are not in th [...]

    26. Originally posted at Give it to Cupcakeveittocupcake 2As always, let s start with the cover The cover intrigued me as it s very different from covers I am used to seeing with a photograph of a person in them This one has a drawing on some type of parchment And a spooky drawing of a shadow person, at that I wanted to know who this creepy shadow y person creature was The characters right away touched my heart Celeste, Gabe, and Kendall are siblings who are forced to move in with their grandma in a [...]

    27. The Conduit is labeled Young Adult, but it s a wacky mix of young adult, fantasy, paranormal, humor and just plain good storytelling that will appeal to young and old The premise is unique in that 18 year old Celeste has been chosen as the Conduit to a Gryphon a magical creature in another plane Celeste s 20 year old brother, Gabe, and her 16 year old sister join her Celeste in trying to save the world by fighting demons, beasts and other evil creatures who are trying to end the world I don t re [...]

    28. I was given this book, in return to give an honest review of this book, and the following two books as well.Conduit is about an 18 year old girl named Celeste, and her older brother Gabe and her younger sister Kendall wicked name by the way They had just moved to a podunk town in Tennessee to stay with their grandmother, after a strange bout of break ins, in their hometown in Michigan Things seemed to be the everyday ordinary life in a small town, up until Celeste finds a statue of a Gryphon Cut [...]

    29. Thanks to me having attention deficit disorder it is apparently really hard to focus on anything, but not this book It had my full, undivided attention from the first page The main character, Celeste, seems to be average in every way other than her wit Her wit is also a trait her brother, Gabe, and younger sister, Keni have as well I couldn t help but laugh from beginning until the end, which I won t spoil this for you here, but definitely a heart wrenching scene Some authors let their wit get c [...]

    30. y review of The Conduit by Stacey RourkeThis book was provided by the author in exchange for honest literary review.Meet Celeste She s 18 and just setting out to explore life and figure out where she fits in She has a perfect 15 year old sister named Kendall who is a blond goddess on two legs Her brother Gabe is the All American football hero Try being just an average middle child between those two It can be down right depressing As the story opens, the trio have packed and are moving to Tenness [...]
