The Conduit by Stacey Rourke
By: Stacey Rourke
Book Blurb (taken from amazon):
All 18-year-old Celeste Garrett wants is to head off to college and make those fun, yet ill-advised, choices college kids are known for. And maybe to spend some time with the hot cameraman she just met. Instead, because of a pact her ancestors made in the 17th century with a mythical creature, she has to save the world.
While normal kids are slamming energy drinks and cramming for exams, Celeste will get her adrenaline rush fighting a fire breathing dragon. She wants to meet friends in the quad to exchange lecture notes, but first she must exchange blows with a shapeshifting demon on the rooftop. Life isn’t always fair for a superhero, but at least she doesn’t have to do it alone. With her brother and sister as sidekicks, they alternate between saving lives and getting on each others’ nerves. Together the trio encounters unspeakable odds, mystical forces and comes face-to-face with an image that will haunt them forever—their grandmother in a leopard print bikini.
Okay, little side note here. If a psychopathic killer asks if you want to see a trick, say no. That’s the smart thing to do. I, on the other hand, responded, “Bring it.”
-excerpt from THE CONDUIT
I thought at first this book was really slow, I couldn't get into it but once I got into it I couldn't put it down. All throughout the book there was humor which I love in a book and there was also parts in it with family and then you have demons! That makes up for the slow start, some people disagree with me about the slow start but I need my books to start off right in the beginning with action. There was also some hope for love in some parts you saw the potential for love. As the book continued I got more and more into it. This author includes so many different things that her writing was perfect for this kind of story, which is a compliment I promise. The next book of hers will be great!
5 out of 5 stars
