The Acropolis Series by R.K. Ryals

The Acropolis (Acropolis, #1)The Acropolis by R.K. Ryals
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love you R. K. Ryals!! I love that The Acroplois is a spin off of The Redemption Series. I am so addicted to the characters you have created. It is so nice to see more of Conor. I love his protective nature and the fact that he always seems to make me laugh. I found myself pulled right in and couldn't put this book down. Besides Conor, I also love his cousin Will. Together they are absolutely hillarious. Add in Emma who seems to be afraid of everything and Deidra who is a little jokester and you couldn't ask for a better story. I love the Drex too!

Conor (an awesome gargoyle) has been demoted after breaking the rules. He has been given the new assignment of escorting Emma Chase to the Acropolis. He never expected to care what happens to his mark, but when he meets Emma he begins to second guess everything he has always believed.

Emma has always been afraid of pretty much everything, been taken to hospitals and doctors to find out what is wrong with her and lived quite a sheltered life with her mom. When she goes a bit crazy on a doctor, Conor is there to escort her to a new safe place. Emma isn't sure if she trusts him but what choice does she have?

I have never read a book containing gargoyles before, but R.K. Ryals has really created a story with so much imagination and style that I am now a gargoyle lover for sure! I highly recommend The Acropolis, but suggest that you read Redemption first. It will make the story that much better! 1000 stars!!!

View all my reviews The Labyrinth (Acropolis, #2)The Labyrinth by R.K. Ryals
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG I LOVE THIS SERIES! I also love how this series ties together with The Redemption Series. All my favorite characters are present in some fashion plus I get to fall in love with so many more. Extremely well written with flawed characters that you see grow and the comradery that develops as they face the trials and tribulations of the labyrinth. I will also warn you, I cried my eyes out. The closeness I developed with these unlikely heros even surprised me.

The labyrinth they must journey through is filled with craziness, heartache and loss, but these demon hybrids amazed me with the heart and bond they used to continue on. I cannot tell you enough how emotional this book was for me. I found the alliances that formed to impact me the most and I will have to agree with Deidra when she says, "Unity is the hybrid advantage", because together they kick butt and slay my heart.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Deliverance is the final book in the Acropolis Series and probably my favorite. It was such an emotional book and I have to admit I cried, a lot. I have become so attached to these characters and in Deliverance they are put through so many painful experiences. Sacrifices are made, leaders are born and love is put to the test.

The Labyrinth left off with Connor and Will being taken by the Gargoyles where they are to be put to death for helping with the hybrids. Oh my goodness I never expected the torture they would have to face. My heart broke in two and I wanted to jump in my kindle and save them. Of course Emma wanted to save him and even put her own life in the line. I just cannot begin to tell you how emotional I became. R.K. Ryals tells a story like no other and you can't help but feel like you are right in the middle of what the characters are experiencing. Brilliant!

I will be honest, I am sad that the series has ended. Connor and Emma's story feels like it has just begun, but I am crossing my fingers that we will get at least a glimpse of them in the final book in the Redemption Series.

Love, love, love Deliverance!!!
