    Excellent fantasy

    At one time, he was an avenging angel, part of a group who would fight whenever He gave the command. However, when God gave His only begotten son to mankind, he turned gentler as described in the New Testament. Reengineering the activity, God no longer needed a horde of bloodthirsty warriors so in a downsizing move, he reassigned many of them to the critical role of Gargoyles, guarding sacred churches and cathedrals. Paddy keeps watch at St. Patrick¿s Cathedral, but goes to the Gargoyle enclave once a month. <P>The sentry is on his way home when he learns that someone vandalized his church and stole valuable artifacts. Paddy coerces Frances Templeton, a Knight of Malta, to help him. After a successful mission, Frances sees Paddy in his true form, which usually means death to the human observer. However, Paddy intercedes obtaining more time for his new friend for a few more days. They learn that a true knight needs to perform a task to prevent Satan¿s demon from arriving on earth. Paddy knows that the Divine Plan is at work, but in spite of their valiant output, Paddy does not know the outcome of their endeavor. <P>Katherine Kurtz writes an often irreverent, but witty tale that never pokes fun at religion. Instead Ms. Kurtz gracefully walks the thin line between an amusing satire and homage to theologies. ST. PATRICK¿S GARGOYLE is a powerful fantasy that focuses on predetermination as opposed to free will through a Divine Plan that proves God¿s love for humanity. That message with numerous other missives reaches readers on many different levels in a complex, superbly written novel. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Great book

    This has long been one of my favorites--too bad the cover shot for the nookbook is for the wrong title--how can people know what they're getting

    Kurtz makes a world where gargoyles, demons and angels exist seem very real. Her insight into both the characters and the setting of the novel makes this book a joy to read. I highly reccomend this book. :)
