Move over shifters, there’s a new type of male in town. This story is part “end of the world,” paranormal, and a forbidden love between a magical creature and a human. After an apocalypse-type of event, magical creatures, wizards, and humans are now thrust into the same Earth realm, and some of the new inhabitants are not happy about being there.
Our gargoyle hero is tasked with looking after Larissa, a human, because the Oracle has seen that she is important in the coming war. We also meet a group of people called The Guild, who are like a magical police force, and they want to protect Larissa as well. While Terak the gargoyle leader, grows to care for his “little human,” he must also balance the needs of his people. They have a tough road of avoiding the bad guys, overprotective family, and even a traitor.
As this was my first foray into the world of the gargoyle, I found it was entertaining, informative, and suspenseful. I consider it a success with how much I enjoyed the storyline and cannot wait for the next books. [May 2014]

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.
