Book Two of the Darkangel Trilogy!


Aeriel has broken the spell on the vampiric darkangel known as Irrylath and returned him to his human form, but the White Witch continues to haunt his dreams. To save her love and the world they live in, Aeriel sets off on a quest across the Sea-of-Dust, to solve a mysterious riddle and gather six magical steeds. Pursued by the White Witch and haunted by her six remaining darkangels, the former slave girl seeks out an ancient oracle who may help her find a way to defeat her enemies.

Painfully aware that her husband Irrylath is still not free of the White Witch's spell, Aeriel sets out on a dangerous quest to gather the winged steeds that Irrylath and his brothers need to do battle against the powerful witch.

    Gathering of Gargoyles Review

    The next book of the Darkangel Trilogy by Meredith Ann Pierce, A Gathering of Gargoyles is interesting in a new form of complications throughout the series. This time, Aeriel is, you can say, confused on Irrylath's feelings for her, now that he has reunited with his mother after so long. And all in all, you're sitting there wondering, is this a love story? Or an action story? Well . . . It's both. Aeriel learns from the former maidens that Irrylath is still not free from the White Witch, and her job is to keep protecting him. So they set off on this epic journey and yeah. It's really sweet and then really entertaining. I love the characters and the plot of the whole story, it's just really awesome. This is definetly a series I can read againe and againe and never be dissapointed.

    A Rollicking, Fascinating Continuation!

    If you liked book one, The Darkangel, then you will REALLY like A Gathering of Gargoyles. Aeriel's tale is so uniquely magical and wondrous, it's almost overwhelming. You can practically feel all the closed doors in your mind opening up as you read this series. I loved this book from page one and to the very last word. This series is very near and dear to my heart. I recommend this book to teens and up.

    Gosh darned good book

    I am an extremely avid reader, but also very picky about what I read, too. This book presented all of the criteria that I personally enjoy in a book: adventure, romance, feminine power, riddles, and fantastical characters.
