*~Synopsis~*Celeste Garrett has finally found a happy balance in her life as the Chosen One, thanks in large part to a certain hunky Irishman. But if there’s any lesson she should heed since receiving her calling it’s that everything can change in the blink of an eye. Soon a terrible new threat, unlike anything she’s ever encountered, causes her to make a gut-wrenching choice that will strip her of someone she holds dear.
As much as she’d like to have a pity party for one, there’s no time for that now because wedding bells are ringing in Gainesboro! In between dress fittings and rehearsal dinners Celeste will have to fend off attacking demons and leering pirates. As if the Dark Army wasn’t scary enough our heroine is faced with the horrifying trauma of attending a bachelorette party with her mom and watching Grams do Jello shots. Is a walk down the aisle even possible for a member of the Garrett family when the Dark Army is out to destroy them? More importantly, will the Dark Army Glee Club sing at the reception?
Raise your glass to the happy couple, and get ready for a wedding…Conduit-style.
I had at first thought this was a trilogy, but I was deluded and probably misread something or something. Because this is NOT a trilogy, since the end of Sacrifice, leaves you with a MASSIVE and I mean Massive cliffhanger.
Sacrifice picks up, not long after Embrace left off. Celeste and Caleb are madly in love, Gabe and Alaina are planning their wedding. Kendall is in heaven, in planning her brother's wedding.
Celeste is still perturbed about having a Garden Gnome as her guide, but she manages. Demon activity is picking up. And the Countess is at it again, only this time it seems like she's got Celeste right where she wants her. Most of the book is dealing with Celeste feeling lost and alone. At the Bridal shop an attack happens and someone close to her, goes oddly wacky. In the meantime, she's trying to save the world, keep her family protected, and make sure that Gabe and Alaina get their happily ever after.
I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book in this series, because it has quickly shaped into one of my most favorite series of all time. I'm dying here already, when is the next book coming out?
