"Griffin's Storm" sees old enemies become friends, other old enemies become even worse and more powerful enemies, a couple new friends, and a whole bunch of action.

Darby Karchut's "Griffin" series just keeps getting better, book by book, and "Griffin's Storm" shows her at the top of her game.

One summer day, Griffin's cruel former Mentor, Nicopolis--supposedly in Middle East exile--suddenly pops back up in Colorado, more powerful and evil than ever. Worse yet, he's assembled a posse dead set on

Griffin’s Storm by Darby Karchut
6 stars!! Yes, I mean it!!
Source: Author for a fair and honest review

It is absolutely no secret how much I love Darby Karchut’s Griffin series and while I was eagerly awaiting the third installment of the series I was in no way prepared for the awesomeness that is Griffin’s Storm. Fire! This book is excellent!

With Griffin’s Storm Karchut came ready to play and has delivered a read which has a totally different feel and flow than the other two installments. From th

Have you ever started reading a book where the real world goes away and you’re caught up in the imaginary world of the characters? You tell the cats “I’ll feed you later.” You tell the homework that’s due tomorrow “You can wait.” And you put a “Do not Disturb” sign on your bedroom door then vanish into your hideaway, where angels soon cast a spell over you. GRIFFIN’S STORM, the third book in the Griffin Series, by award winning author Darby Karchut, is that kind of book. I’ve been looking forwar

It was great to catch up with Griffin and Basil again in this third book about the Terrae Angeli - the Earth Angels. They are the traditional guardian angels who watch closely over humans. In Karchut's mythology, they are also very like humans in that they have free will - the ability to choose to be good or evil. Griffin is back to being a Terrae Angeli in this one. There are some tensions with his girlfriend Katie. She was happy when he had been turned into a human. But she knew how unhappy he ...more

So very excited to receive my copy of Griffin's Storm by Darby Karchut. I so love Griffin and Basil. I want their story to go on...well forever. I don't want this story to ever end! Darby...please tell me this is not the end? I really need more Griffin and Basil. Especially after this last installment. And with this budding relationship of Basil's?? You can't just leave me hanging!!

I really enjoyed the old and new characters introduced in this third installment. Sergei really grew on me and I lo

So this is the third installment of the Griffin series. Still lovin’ it! Storm picks up where Fire left off. Griffin has his powers back and has returned to training with Basil. Katie and Griffin are still together but Katie is starting to realize that having an angel for a boyfriend isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Storm also introduces us to more of the Terrae Angeli.
I really like this series. One of the best parts of it is how Karchut’s characters interact in their relationships with each oth

I've loved this series since I read the first book, and each book has gotten better. This book (the third) is the best yet, and I don't say that lightly. We've seen Griffin grow as a character---although he's still a little bit petulant at times, especially whenever he has to interact with Sergei, which I think is realistic because, even though he's an angel, he's still a teenage boy---and nowhere is that more evident than in his relationship with Basil. Because Griffin was abused by his first m ...more

It's no secret that this series is one of my favorites. There are so many things about the entire thing that I love. The fact that amid all the otherworld aspects swirling around Karchut manages to keep it all completely believable is fantastic. The issues that our young hero, Griffin, faces are so relatable to teens (and the inner teen inside all of us) that you get drawn in very quickly to the story. You want to see Griffin succeed in what he's doing, whether it be his relationships with girlf ...more

GRIFFIN'S STORM is book three in author Darby Karchut’s Griffin series – a series which continues to deliver on all fronts. Showcasing an original, engaging plot, relatable and intriguing characters and some darn good writing, this is a great series.

In this third book, we are once again flying high with Griffin and his mentor Basil as the two perform their jobs as guardian angels amidst recovering from his stint as a mortal, navi

Since I am being honest, I will tell you upfront that I am completely biased. Karchut has proven herself to be a wonderful person and an amazing author. I have not been disappointed by anything that I have read of hers and I recommend her to just about everyone.

It is books like this and authors like Karchut that make me very very glad that I review books. Griffin and Basil are a duo that I feel that I’ve gotten to know pretty well. In fact I am pretty attached to them. While every adventure sh

Finishing the last book makes me sad. I really enjoyed this series.

The plot of the book is awesome. Stepping into Griffin's shoes, I loved watching him go from a scared boy to a strong young man. Reading the growth of Griffin and watching him fulfill his destiny is great. Each chapter, Griffin grows stronger making mistakes along the way but becoming better. And when his past comes back to haunt him, Griffin is ready to face it.

The love interest really bugged me. I wanted these two to fall even

I must say I found a new favorite author, Darby Karchut is an amazing writer that gets your attention from the first page to the last. Meyers has met her match in Darby Karchut whose creativity and excitement spills onto each page with an " at the edge of the seat gripping masterpiece". This book has such balance with excitement, intrigue and grace. Karchut's ability to bring the characters to life is so great that they walk off the page into your heart.

I love Darby Karchut's Griffin series. I have from the very beginning and it just keeps getting better and better.

Griffin's Storm is full of non stop action that will keep you turning the pages and keep you reading until the very end.

Once again the characters are strong and well developed. There are new characters introduced and I loved getting to know them. The dynamic the characters create are extraordinary. Darby's characters feel so real that I feel like they could literally jump out of the

The plot thickens in the third installment of the Griffin series. While the threat of Nicopolis was dormat in Griffin's Fire, he comes into the scene with a vengeance in Griffin's Storm. Griffin and Katie's relationship takes a back seat as Griffin, along with Sergei, and a band of new characters prepare for the battle of their lives. My favorite part is the budding relationship between Basil and Nan-ja. I think the old guy deserves a little romance. :) I am excited for the 4th book in this seri ...more
