Superb story telling. I fell deeply in love with the all of the characters of this book from the get go. Except of course for the mean ones. I hated the Narcoblix. If you love urban fantasy, you will love this book as well. I read the book "The Gargoyle" by andrew Davidson, and loved it. This book is easily as good. I bought this because I thought it was romance. However, it really is so much more than that. The lives of the Gargoyles and the challenges they face day to day locked me in. Katharine is a sweet heroin, and Behlem is a perfect hero. At times you get angry with him for being the tough guy. But it is how they are, and you realize that early on. I recommend this book for anyone who loves a good "Hard to put down book" read this one. A..
This story went way beyond romance for me. The elements Mrs. Story added regarding the urban fantasy creatures was superb. I was able to lose myself in every chapter. The rookeries underneath New York were only the beginning. The poor Gargoyles had so much to endure in them. I could picture rats, and all kinds of insects in them, along with the stench of the NY sewers. I was so happy when they got to leave the rookeries and head to Whipporwill forest. Yet, our hero Behlem had his hands full there as well. If it wasn't for Baycocks and skin-walkers lurking in every corner, he might not have had to protect our heroin Katharine with such intensity. Speaking of Behlem and Katharine, when you read this book you will get a vivid picture of them and how they interact with each other. They are so attuned to each other that you can feel it. The Narcoblix are a scary off shoot of the vampires. so much more creepier than a vampire. I have to wonder why nobody has written about them before. If anyone followed the story of the Gargoyles (the cartoon) or even legend, you would know about Avalon and princess Katharine. This story takes you into that world with an American twist. Most of the creatures used are based out of American folk-lore. So, enjoy,, I DID!! Ronnie, Some more recommendations from me that are by this author, and some others that I like.
