Publisher's Summary

Forget everything you know about the world. Vampires exist, Werewolves exist, monsters hide in the shadows, and it's my job to make sure they obey our laws. My name is Evelyn, and I'm a gargoyle. The last one or so I thought. A team of Gargoyles have found me. And for the first time in over a century, I'm not the only one of my kind around, which is a good thing since demons are slipping into this world fully formed. 

The bodies are piling up. Something is going on in my city, and it looks like I'm going to need the backup.

Definately recommend!

I rate alot of books but not many get my lazy butt to actually write praise! Evie is a heroine I can get behind in every way. Its been awhile since Ive been so happy with the female lead. I absolutely adore how she is so badass and strong, as well as scholarly smart and independent. Although who wouldn't be after 100 years of youth, am I right!? She's no whiner, she isn't faint of heart and thank you thank you..she doesn't overthink every tiny thing, she knows what she wants and commits to her choices come what may. No over the top phyco mental babble here!! yay! Go Evie! I haven't finished the book yet, but was excited to share.

Ummm Yes!

Yes! What s great start to a new series! I now must go find more of her stuff because I need a distraction from the fact that I can’t read more of this one!

Congratulations to both the author, narrators, and you the reader!

Love this story - can’t wait for more!

I’ll be honest, I read this book on kindle when it first released. I love this author, and I love this series. The plot is unique and I enjoy the characters.

I have one complaint; I may be a bit of an audiophile like Lexie (per her definition). I can’t listen to the male actor’s voice for Zahur without hearing Voldemort from the HP movies.

Not a huge deal, because there’s not a ton from his POV, and I’m probably just a crazy person, but I struggled a bit with just that one thing.

Overall, I loved it!

Love the book, not so much the narrators

I love Blt's writing and reading the books but both series (the veil diaries and book of stone) have narrators that I just can't get behind. I listened all the way through but I was tempted to stop because the voices were driving me nuts. The male and female narrators in this book used different voices for the characters. The male made Zahur sound like a crotchety old man. While the female narrator made him soundyoung and sophisticated. And there were some names and words that weren't pronounced correctly.

BL... try Nicole Poole!

Excellent Narrator, Storyline and Reality

This was an exceptional story. The main character is fierce, loyal and good hearted...Cannot wait for the next book to come out. I would recommend this author and this book to anyone who enjoys a paranormal romance that is realistic, plausible with enough action and steamy love scenes that balance each other out harmoniously. 5 stars!!!

Love it

I don' say this often for many books but I absolutely loved it. I gave it a chance after huge disappointment with other series Veil diaries from the same author which I hated it. This book got my attention as one of those maybe books and wow!!! I cannot wait for more.

Not bad, felt like a very long story....

Overall, pretty good. Keep in mind, cliffhanger so just be aware of that. Little drawn out for my liking...

Loved this book

If this is anything to compare I can’t wait for the non ya version of the veil diaries. This was sooo good and I can’t wait for the next one. Obviously this is not ya like the veil diaries. So if that is what you’re looking for this may not be for you. However it is amazing on its own.

Warrior Woman Love

New Author for me and wow ..
Interesting story line, great character development. . Exciting action ..

The Narators are easy to listen to. Although the male narator, some of the accents sounded of but easily overlooked.

I'm definitely of to buy the next part of the story, I hate cliff hangers..
