Here’s the set-up for Stacey Rourke’s Embrace, just $3.99 on Kindle:
Whether she likes it or not, eighteen year old Celeste Garrett has come to terms with being the Chosen One. She knew having a “normal life” would be tricky, between intense training sessions and epic demonic battles, but she didn’t know at what cost it would come. That is, until a dear friend is harmed by the malicious forces hunting her.
Now, she’d like nothing more than to retreat into a hermit lifestyle to prevent anyone else from getting hurt. But startling revelations, amazing new abilities, and mortifying moments in front of insanely hot guys won’t allow time for that. Soon, Celeste finds herself surrounded by darkness and wondering who she can trust—if anyone.

AWESOME!!!! Tried to read it slow with hopes of making last, but I was so caught up in it that I read it in a day and half. Can’t wait for the next one!!! – “A Kids Review”
Love the wit, the characters and the story. – Charlene
All I have to say is if you haven’t read anything by the author, you are SERIOUSLY missing out! I loved her writing style in this book so much that I went back and started reading the first book. Embrace is technically a stand alone even though it is part of the series, but I would recommend reading The Conduit first. – B. Carrigan
If you are looking adventure, a little romance, and twist and turns, this is the series for you. A must read that will leave your screaming for more. – “The Mystic World of Books Review,” Jennifer
