In November of this year the fourth Gryphon Series novel, Ascension, will launch but it won't be alone! The previous books in the series will be jam packed with exciting new goodies! Each will have illustrations to bring some of your favorite moments to life, the NEVER BEFORE IN PRINT Sidekick Chronicles will be included in Embrace and Sacrifice, AND they have brand new covers! Ladies and Gentlemen, without any further ado, I give you the new Gryphon Series Covers:
Ascension, releasing November 2013
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?
Oh, but that's not all kids!! As I mentioned inside each book will be original illustrations. Because I love you all, here's a sneak peek;
Illustrator Crystal Ord will be bringing some of your favorite Gryphon Series characters to life!

The demonic and fantasy elements of the Conduit’s journey will jump off the page thanks to Robert Immings;
