Image of Rise of the Gryphon (Belador)

Longtime fans of the Belador series will have much to celebrate in the fearless Evalle Kincaid’s fourth outing. Kenyon and Love write with such heart and investment, each scene has an intensity that will quicken the pulse and capture the imagination. Because the layers of this complicated plot only grow and develop, new readers would not be advised to start with this book, but the rewards of this constantly evolving series are great, including the promise of future installments as Evalle’s journey continues.

An Alterant who has always lived on the fringes of the Beladors, Evalle Kincaid is at last given the chance to prove herself, but the cost might be more than she can pay. As a traitor within the Medb coven threatens everyone Evalle holds dear, and a vicious power turns close allies into enemies, Evalle must use every skill in her arsenal to prevent all-out war. She must also fight for a future with Storm. But will love be strong enough to save them when Storm’s past returns to haunt Evalle? (POCKET, Aug., 480 pp., $7.99)
