Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is the place lots of people love to visit. What everyone doesn't know is it is the center for a war between good and evil. Izzy has come back hoping she can help save Tristan the man she had a part in trapping in the Cathedral. She also loves him and will do anything to help give him his life back. Tris remembers Izzy and her love keeps him going. He doesn't realize how things have changed. Both sides seem to want part of him and he wants to keep Izzy safe. She however will fight to the death to protect him. How will the battle end? Izzy is supposed to be on the bad side. She has done many bad things but she has had reasons for doing them. She fell in love along time ago with Tris and will do anything to make up for her part. She is one heck of a fighter and will take on anyone. Tris has many secrets of his own and fell in love with Izzy to his surprise. He wants to help her and will sacrifice anything for her. They both are very protective of each other and are truly soul mates I believe. I really enjoyed this story. It is a quick fascinating book. Set in a place that has always fascinated me this book made me look at the Cathedral in a whole new light. You get some of it all in this book. You have lots of action as it is a battle of good versus evil. You really get to see more of the darker side than good. I love all the different creatures in this book, You have gargoyles, witches, demons, angels and so much more. You also get some nice steamy scenes when Tris and Lizzy get together. The sure do heat the pages up. I was surprised at the ending as I didn't know what to expect. I tried to figure it our but I had no idea at the secret was revealed. If you love paranormal books with a great mixture of creatures pick this one up.
Linda has crafted a wonderful novel full of myth, magic and love. Tristan traded his soul for the one he loves and is now bound to the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral. Sucked into a game between Heaven and Hell, the only way to escape, is to find someone else to take his place. Awake only one night a year, he has limited time to find someone. Trapped In Stone's setting and characters are masterfully crafted and make you feel like you are really there with them. I truly wanted Tristan to get out of his plight and be with his love, Izzy. It is a great battle between good and evil, heaven and hell and makes you look at things in a different way. I don't think I will ever look at a gargoyle the same again, or want to go by a building with them at night. The description of what it feels like to be in the gargoyle state actually made me feel claustrophobic. I've never read gargoyles before, but if this is how they are supposed to be, I'll definitely be reading more in the near future.
*No spoilers in review* Welcome to the latest project that shines with a paranormal and urban fantasy twist on reality. I’m not usually one for a lot of reading in these genres, but I find myself continually drawn to what is newly released by Ms. Thomas-Sundstrom. Her latest touching and compelling reality drops us in Paris on All Hollow’s Eve. I love how this time I was transported to the land of Gargoyles, Recruiters, Angels, Demons and The Death Coach. The Gargoyles are what really did it for me. The history and legends that are encased in the Gargoyle family transformed the action of Tristan and Izzy’s century old playing of the game. If you’re looking for an urban fantasy twist, then this should already be in your collection and read. I already have it bookmarked to reread as the witching hour comes closer. Enjoy the walk on the other side.
intriguing story premise about a man trapped in stone who can only escape one night a year and what he can do on that one night. great character development with a riveting story. wonderful beginning to a new series .
