The Conduit

The Conduit
by Stacey Rourke

After a series of break-ins at their home, Celeste Garrett's mother sends Celeste, her sister, Kendall, and her brother, Gabe, off to live with their grandmother until she can sell the house and join them.  And while they're old enough to go out on their own, they'd rather stick together for now, especially since the tragic death of their father.

So now Celeste is living with her siblings and her you're-only-as-old-as-you-feel grandmother, and she's taking the time to figure out what she wants in life.

But life has a way of figuring out what it wants before you do.

When Celeste accidentally activates her own destiny via a family heirloom, she and her siblings suddenly become the only people alive who can stop the oncoming demon assault.  As "the conduit", Celeste is the key to saving the world and the world really needs her right now.

Final thoughts:  Cotton candy fantasy-ish book.  While Celeste is supposed to be 18, her "voice" comes off much younger, but that doesn't stop the fun.  Overall, it's a decent read with a few hiccups and a few truly funny moments.  It's not perfect, but it's a pretty interesting ride for a few hours.  Side note: it's a little confusing having Kendall on the cover when Celeste is the center of the story, the POV, and the protagonist.

Rating: 4/5
