Rafael by Faith Gibson

There's a new species of shapeshifter in town...

Rafael Stone is the King of the Gargoyle shapeshifters. His family, The Stone Society, has ruled the Americas for over seven hundred years. As an architect, he has spent the last thirty years helping to rebuild New Atlanta since the near Apocalypse. As King of the Gargouille, he has spent those same thirty years protecting his city from the dregs of society.

Kaya Kane is the New Atlanta Chief of Police. At thirty-six, not only is she the youngest, but also the first female Chief the city has ever had. She has dedicated her life to keeping her city safe. When a multiple homicide brings her face to face with the elusive Rafael Stone, her life will never be the same.
Rafael's kind has never mated with a human but just speaking to Chief Kane on the telephone nearly brings him to his knees. Kaya has given up on ever having a relationship other than her career. When the two meet, sparks fly. Literally. Can Rafael give in to the fact that Kaya is human? Can she overlook the evidence pointing to Rafael as the killer?

Rafael, Stone Society Book 1 introduces you to a new world filled with Bad Ass shifters and the mates who love them.

Really good story

Truly enjoyed the fast paced storyline and characters. Being that there are so many heros and each has his own story, wished this series came in a boxed set.

This is a book that you will put down. It wasn't a book that kept me glued to the pages. However, if you put it down, you will pick it up again. Rafe is determined to have Kaya and protect her. Her life is in danger. Kaya is conflicted by her feelings towards Rafe and her duty as the chief of police. Who is trying to kill her and why? Her relationship with Rafe and the investigation reveals other secret and poses new questions about Gargoyles, their human mates, half-breeds, and the man behind the plot to kill Kaya that lead into the second book. Not sure if I will buy the second book or not.

Nothing was resolved but their mating is she a half breed? Since that seems to be the way the story is going but its never brought up. I realize this is a series but it left so many holes i felt the story needed alittle more fleshing out to establish the characters. Will try book 2 see if it gets better.

The character development is great. The complexity of the novel pulls you in, and you don't know what direction it's gonna go next. It has a great ending with no cliff hangers but does leave you wanting to know what happens with the rest of the clan. I don't usually write reviews, but this book is fantastic. You won't regret it!! Granted there are grammar errors, but with a story this well written, who cares!! I'm definitely continuing with the series, and I recommend you get started!

Rafael is my first book by Faith Gibson. Ms Gibson has delivered an awesome, well written paranormal book. The characters are phenomenal and my favorite part of the book. She has packed Rafael and Kaya's story with suspense, action, humor and sizzle and it kept me reading way past my normal bedtime. If you enjoy paranormal, you'll not want to miss this one! I loved reading Rafael and look forward to reading more from Faith Gibson in the future. Rafael is book 1 of the Stone Society Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I purchased a signed copy of this book at a book event. Hopefully I'll find Ms Gibson at another book event so I can load more of this series to my bookshelf.

Faith Gibson is a new author to me. l keep a list of twenty of my favorite authors . This is the list I share with friends . They wait until i read a book and then I e-mail them and let them know if this is a good book and author or tell them dont waste your time. When I got have way through i had to e-mail everyone right then and tell them to get this series. This is great author and book. If you are not into graphic love scenes and shifters then this is not for you. THIS IS NOT A BOOK FOR TEENAGERS! I'm on book four and getting ready to read book five. So far this is all in the series. I hope book six and more will be out soon!!! The waiting is going to drive me crazy lol lol. A MOST READ!!!

Stone & rock solidly addicted!!! Fantastic!  What a rush!  I have never read a book that had so many amazing parts to it!  Its mysterious, it grabs you, pulls you in and puts its hooks in you and doesn’t let go!  It is VERY entertaining with humor to lighten up the intensely hot & sexy Shifter men – in fact a WHOLE CLAN of smoking hot men to drool over!  But the absolute best part - Gargoyle Shifters!!!!  AWESOME!  And loving them is not so “hard” lol  I found this book to be so unique and fresh with a great depth to the story that made me feel like I was part of their family too!!  I have to admit that while there were a lot of characters, it was so easy to love them!  Well, the good ones only, of course!  I did at first have a hard time remembering them all, but you soon realize that you don’t need to!  Whenever there is interaction with a “different” member of the clan, Faith very subtly reminds you who they are and what there specialty is.  I found that it worked well with the story and only helped to make the story even richer.  I was completely blown away with the romance and of course the HOT sex!  Thought that the whole concept of the mates and bonding was way too cool and just…WOW!  I love the depth and multi-faceted story line(s) because you know that there is going to be, or rather I HOPE that there will be, many stories in this series.  So many parts that were not solved, explained, expanded or where the surface was barely scratched.  I can’t wait to see where Faith takes it!  I love the complex story and how it unfolds, but I have a love/hate relationship with how things are explained or play out because you get some information now while not being inundated and overloaded/overwhelmed with EVERYTHING, but enough left out to tease you, get your mouth watering, fingers itching for the next chapter or book.  Not all authors can successfully write a story of this scope, depth & calibre, I think that Faith not only does this, but she takes you on a very romantic, magical, beautiful and intense roller coaster ride that you will NOT want to end!  I cannot wait to read book 2 – Gregor!!!!  This is the first book of Faith’s that I have read, but boy do I have “faith” in her and her books especially if this one gives any indication to her style of writing, then I think it would be safe to say that ANY of her books would be fantastic!!!

What a fun book!  It's the first in a series (The Stone Society) and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment!  While I have read several paranormal and shifter series, I'm new to Gargoyles and now I'm hooked. Rafael is a great character - he’s complex and very well developed, setting up this new breed of heros.  Kaya is a wonderful female lead, very strong, smart and not one to back down.   They are thrown into a suspenseful mystery while building their romance and it all ties together so well. Faith Gibson is on my watch list - I can hardly wait for Gregor’s story to be released. I highly recommend this book for any fan of paranormal romance.

I had never heard of this author before picking up this book nor have I ever read a book with Gargoyle shifters. I was really looking forward to finding a new author and checking out a new shifter I hadn't come across as yet. Boy did I get a treat!! This was a great switch from the regular paranormal romances with werewolves, vampires and other beasties, and not just because they are gargoyle shifters but also because of the post apocalyptic story line. I was drawn in almost immediately and had such a hard time putting it down to fix dinner and you may as well have just said forget about sleeping I had to finish this book! Faith Gibson kept me guessing and kept feeding more of a story line I am just dying to know about. Rafael and Kaya's book is the first book setting up this series so you get a lot of information that makes you DROOL for the next books. This can be read as a stand alone, but you wont want it to end there you will want to know about everyone else you meet and yes a few loose ends that will eat at you but Rafael and Kaya's ends are not left undone. There are so many faucets to this new world with Gargoyles, we learned a few in this book that will make you itch to read more. I can not wait to have the next book. The characters, story, set up, everything was just fantastic. I am now a super fan of Faith Gibson's writing. I will have to stalk her pages until Gregor comes out I can't wait! Wonderful book, one I am so very happy to recommend! ***I was given a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest and fair review

I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review by author Faith Gibson. This is book 1 of the Stone Society series by the author. Rafael Stone is the head of Stone Incorporated and along with his brothers they take care of New Atlanta from evil. Police chief Kaya Kane is dealing with 11 murders of the World Council Delegation when she meet the illusive Rafael Stone. Kaya and Rafael feel the sparks between them but neither know what the future will bring. I think this is by far the best gargoyle story I have read. This book has suspense, romance, mystery all rolled into 1 great story line.  This is for any mature paranormal romance book lover and it is a great addition to your ebook library.
