Ten Things you didn't know about Caleb;

1.) He's been keeping tabs on Celeste waaaaay longer than he lets on. Feelings have developed before he evens speaks his first word to her.

2.) He rides an Exile Bulldozer motorcycle with a Harley Davidson engine AND plays the guitar. Does it get any hotter than that?

3.) In his room, Celeste finds a worn copy of Silas Marner, a book about a man wrongfully accused for a crime that is forced to live as an outcast. This is definitely the type of story our fine Irish lad can relate to.

4.) The scars that decorate Caleb's torso were acquired from the trials, where he was ordered to fight to the death in hand to hand combat versus other demons and from lashings he was made to suffer at the whims of The Countess.

5.) Caleb has demonic Titan blood in him, which gives him the power over the elements. The only one he's never been able to master is his power over the earth. As he admits to a blushing Celeste, "I've never been able to make the earth move." Her response, "Maybe you just need practice."

6.) Each element he calls to himself alters his appearance somewhat. Celeste has witnessed live flames licking beneath the surface of his skin, his eyes turning blue and diamond wave patterns lapping over his flesh, but she didn't see the air transformation because he was using that as a diversion to get away from her.

7.) Not only has Caleb met Celeste's father, but he has given his approval of their relationship.

8.) More than anything Caleb longs to be human to give Celeste the life he believes she deserves.

9.) He most definitely will be back in future works, but in what capacity? That you'll have to wait and see...

10.) Okay, maybe you already know this, but Caleb is a hottie! (added by Bex - I couldn't resist!)

All 18-year-old Celeste Garrett wants is to head off to college and make those fun, yet ill-advised, choices college kids are known for. And maybe to spend some time with the hot cameraman she just met. Instead, because of a pact her ancestors made in the 17th century with a mythical creature, she has to save the world. While normal kids are slamming energy drinks and cramming for exams, Celeste will get her adrenaline rush fighting a fire breathing dragon. She wants to meet friends in the quad to exchange lecture notes, but first she must exchange blows with a shapeshifting demon on the rooftop. Life isn’t always fair for a superhero, but at least she doesn’t have to do it alone. With her brother and sister as sidekicks, they alternate between saving lives and getting on each others’ nerves. Together the trio encounters unspeakable odds, mystical forces and comes face-to-face with an image that will haunt them forever—their grandmother in a leopard print bikini.

RONE Award Winner Best YA Paranormal Work of 2012
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.

Celeste Garrett has finally found a happy balance in her life as the Chosen One, thanks in large part to a certain hunky Irishman. But if there’s any lesson she should heed since receiving her calling it’s that everything can change in the blink of an eye. Soon a terrible new threat, unlike anything she’s ever encountered, causes her to make a gut-wrenching choice that will strip her of someone she holds dear. As much as she’d like to have a pity party for one, there’s no time for that now because wedding bells are ringing in Gainesboro! In between dress fittings and rehearsal dinners Celeste will have to fend off attacking demons and leering pirates. As if the Dark Army wasn’t scary enough our heroine is faced with the horrifying trauma of attending a bachelorette party with her mom and watching Grams do Jell-o shots. Is a walk down the aisle even possible for a member of the Garrett family when the Dark Army is out to destroy them? More importantly, will the Dark Army Glee Club sing at the reception? Raise your glass to the happy couple, and get ready for a wedding…Conduit-style.
