Happy Friday Everyone!
We have made it another week, and although I have to work tomorrow, it is still going to be an amazing weekend! Today I wanted to review a paranormal romance that has gargoyles, zombies, dragons, humans, and other paranormal creatures. Stone Guardian by Danielle Monsch, is one thrilling adventure that you don’t want to miss!
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“Gryphons flying past skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago.
Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species, nor has she wanted to. Her life is as ordinary as it gets – that is, until one day she walks out of her apartment and is attacked by a mob of Zombies, only to be saved by a Gargoyle.
Gargoyles trust no one outside their Clan, but due to a cryptic prophecy, Terak, Leader of the Gargoyles, has been watching over the human woman for months. While he can find no reason why the woman has been singled out, something about her stirs every protective instinct within him. When the attack confirms that the threats against her exist and are real, he convinces Larissa that though their races have never been allies, the best chance of discovering why she has been brought into his world is by working together.
In the course of their investigation Terak becomes entranced by his little human. But when he discovers why Necromancers want her and the great reward that awaits him if he betrays her, he must choose between the welfare of his Clan and not only Larissa’s life, but the fate of this New Realm as well.”
What Danielle does with this story is create characters that you can relate to and will fall instantly in love with. Her take on gargoyles is so amazing you will be wishing they were real. Larissa is a strong heroine on her own, and can take care of herself. Although Terak is a little over protective of her, he still gives her the confidence in herself to stand up for what she wants and to protect herself. As they go on this journey together they learn more about each other that intrigues them, and when they figure out what Larissa is, will it create a wedge between them or bring them together?
This book will leave you wanting more, and will leave you on the edge of your seat until the very end. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will scream for two characters to get together. If you love paranormal romance, than you need to pick up a copy of this book as soon as possible!
Go fall in love with a sexy brooding Gargoyle my dears!
