Her enemy is her only hope…
Rose Johnson’s adoptive mother was murdered, and Rose is next. She may be the last gargoyle in the world—the last being who stands between this world and the evils of Otherworld. In order to keep her existence a continued secret, Rose needs to find the stone that holds her adoptive mother’s soul. Which means enlisting the help of her enemies the Sentinels…
Sentinel Cal Levesque never forgave himself for failing Rose’s family years ago. Seeing Rose alive is shock enough, until the stunningly beautiful gargoyle attacks him upon sight. As they strike an uneasy peace—and unexpected and escalating attraction—Cal knows he’ll have to tell Rose who really betrayed her family. And with Rose’s life in greater danger than ever, Cal has a chance to make up for the past…as long he doesn’t fall in love.
Now that I have been reading more and more paranormal this is the first time that I have read a book about gargoyles, Locked in Stone defiantly gave me a new outlook on gargoyles. Also, if you are a paranormal fan, there are the same magical being in this book as well, there’s a little bit of everything and I like that.
This was a very interesting concept that had me engaged from the very beginning. Once I started reading I didn’t want to put it down, and the fact that it was about 200 pages made it easy to do that. It was the perfect read for my snow day!
I also like that this book didn’t dwell on the romance side of the book. It was a back drop to the bigger story. Yes, there was a hero and a heroine and they had a huge attraction to each other, but there was this huge story alongside it. There were three scenes with A LOT of action in it, that’s always entertaining.
I really hope there’s more to Rose and Cal’s story; I think there’s so much more that can happen. Also, fingers crossed it’s in their POVs like this book was.
