Dorian Robert-Houdin, the three-and-a-half-foot gargoyle chef who fancies himself a modern-day Poirot, is slowly turning into stone, and it's up to Zoe Faust to unravel the alchemical secrets that can save him. When they discover that a long-lost stone gargoyle with a connection to Dorian has reappeared in Europe, the stakes are even higher. From Portland to Paris, Zoe searches for the hidden knowledge she needs, but a cold case that harkens back to 1942 throws her off course. With an ailing friend desperately trying to discover his own elixir of life and a new romantic interest offering the first chance at love she's had in nearly a century, Zoe is torn between a dangerous form of alchemy and her desire for a safer life.

If you are new to this series: go to book 1 and start there! You will otherwise be very confused. This series is meant to be read in order.
With that being said, this was the BEST book of the series. Things really came full circle in many ways, we get answers for old questions & meet a new cast of characters who play a huge role. Not everyone is how they seem, and I was constantly being surprised by what happened next.
The end of this book is very satisfying.. finally! There is some closure on things with Dorian, but it leaves the door open for more ... I hope there is a book 4!
I can't say what I want because I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't listened yet. this is a really good series. Kept all of us interested. can't wait to see the movie hint hint
We are now proud parents of a daughter and a wonderful son-in-law! He is also a child of The U. S. Navy, bonded over military time:)!
I throughly enjoyed the two previous books, this one, not as much. I think it could've been shorter. To me, internal dialogue is a bit excessive. Do I think it's worth money or credit, yes. I don't regret my purchase but it wasn't as funny and entertaining as the first two. It seemed repetitive to me. This is a series so before you listen to this third installment, listen to the first two.
The Pandian/Motyka combination is still very good.
yes, simply because I like Ms Motyks's voice, and it "fits" the books characters. She has range and diversity.
Dorian, because he's creative, level headed in most situations, vulnerable and fun. It was interesting to think he had a "brother", but disappointing that this ended in a random, unfinished manner
I must complain that I lost an entire day to this book. Once I started I could not break the trance. Now where has that day gone and how long will I have to wait to see what mischief results from the final twist to the story. Oh Gigi Pandian, you cruel woman!
Say something about yourself!
I love Dorian and Zoe, but she seemed off her game in this book. Ending seemed rushed
Julia Motyka does a great job with Dorian and all French.
No way to tell if this is the last in the series. Some things left open, but unfortunately nothing so interesting that I would continue with this series.
Gigi Pandian has written another great addition to her Accidental Alchemist series. The series is original and quite entertaining. Julia Motyka once again gives a wonderful performance and brings the characters to life. If you're looking for something different, you won't want to miss this series.

This Accidental Alchemist series is light, refreshing reading, with the latest installment being just as enjoyable as the first. Thanks so much, Gigi Pandian! And, I REALLY love the narrator for this series, Julie Motyka! She does a really wonderful job narrating these delicious stories!
