Art restorer Felicity "Fil" Shaltis can read the magic in auras, but her fascination with a valuable statue her friend Ella Harrow asks her to locate is purely artistic. At least until the fierce stone gargoyle comes to life as a powerful immortal warrior, who promptly saves her from a cultist set on destroying them both. Suddenly "chiseled good looks" takes on a whole new meaning. Spar expected nothing less than one of the seven demons of the Dark to wake him, but instead he finds himself the unlikely savior of a spirited human female. As one of seven Guardians created to vanquish the Darkness, Spar has no time for love, but he can't deny that his destiny is clearly entwined with Fil's. To battle the looming threat to humanity, Spar must first save the woman who summoned him...

I enjoyed the storyline as well as the narration, Warren has always been one of my favorite authors. The narration was pretty good, a good dialogue and distinction between characters. There was one little part where it appeared the narrator lost her place or it wasn't edited correctly, but she repeated a part if the book. Again, overall I enjoyed it very much.
I don't think I liked this as much as I did the first one but I still really liked it. I did get tired of Fil (what a horrible name) Felicity pushing Spar away and then changing her mind and seducing him only to push him away again. That was a little irritating. Authors think that makes a heroine look strong but it actually makes her look like an idiot, like she doesn't know what the hell she wants.
I liked Spar much more than I liked Felicity, just like I preferred Kees over Ella, in Heart of Stone.
Overall, It was a good story with some good sex and I will definitely buy the next book.
As for the narrator: She did an excellent job. She sighed when the book called for it, as well as laughed and yelled. AND the men sounded like men.
hard to finish. don't know if the story was bad, tge narrator, or both. story was stilted and seemed to jump from scene to scene without decent transition. story line was blah.
