wonderful new series!
Heart Bandit (Gargoyle Night Guardians #1) - Rosalie Redd
*purchased copy Jan 2020* I have a *thing* for the more obscure paranormal creatures, and gargoyles are at the top of that list, since so few are written. Add in an author who is a firm favourite, and really, you can't go wrong! And I LOVED this gargoyle book! It has twists and turns, new additions to the folklore of gargoyles. It has a feisty young lady, with an old head on her shoulders. It has an old solider, with a hardened heart. It has a scorned witch, and some bad as sin fae folk who want nothing more than to destroy all the gargoyles! Beaumont (not ever shortened to Beau, so many Brownie points!) is old, and actually has had enough. Faced with his little pickpocket stealing his most precious stone, he knows that he will die if he doesn't get it back. But since meeting the feisty little thief, his attitude is changing, and maybe, just maybe, he can find it, and be happy with Sadie. I loved that Beaumont only calls Sadie her given name but once in the whole book. She's his little thief, his pickpocket, all those sorts of names. Why? He doesn't like that Sadie contains the word SAD! I was like, "oh thats so sweet!" I liked that Sadie's sister will play a huge part in another gargoyle's life, in book 2. And I wonder if the scorned witch will be making another appearence in a later book to redeem herself. Ms Redd has started a new series with a bang, and I hope to get to read them all! 5 full and shiny stars! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Heart Bandit (Gargoyle Night Guardians #1) by Rosalie Redd
Heart Bandit (Gargoyle Night Guardians #1) - Rosalie Redd

@TRRtweet, @RosalieRedd, #Paranormal, #Romance, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

HEART BANDIT is the first book in the Gargoyle Night Guardians series, and we start off with Beaumont, who has been a Gargoyle for over 800 years. We find a new world of evil fae, the Critch, dubious souls, and an unwillingness to give in. Sadie does what she has to, to survive and plan for her longterm goal of getting her GED. If this includes pickpocketing, then so be it. However, all things change when she takes Beaumont's spark stone.

Rosalie Redd has created a world of interest, with strong alpha males and feisty females to keep them on their toes. There is no "insta-bond" between our two main characters, just good, old-fashioned lust and interest. There are plenty more characters I can't wait to hear about, not limited to Drake, the leader of the Chicago Gargoyles who you don't actually see much of.

The world-building is wonderful, the characters come alive, and the pacing is smooth. All in all, this has been a great read and I can't wait to continue with the series. After all, I'm really hoping for Drake!

The Last Gargoyle
The Last Gargoyle (Goyle, Guardian #1) - Paul Durham

Audience: Middle Grade

Format: Hardcover/Library Copy

 

 

My earliest memory is of a crib, a darkened room, and three shadows slipping through the doorway with bad intentions.

- first sentence

 

This is such a charming book with fun characters and an exciting story. The story includes Grotesques, Bone Masons, Netherkin, Shadow Men, and the Boneless King. It has danger, mystery, good & evil, and suspense. I really liked it.

 

Penhallow is a gargoyle but he wants you to call him a grotesque. He protects his building and his wards from evil. When he loses his two best friends and faces a new enemy, he feels completely alone, until Viola turns up on his roof.

 

I loved Penhallow and Viola's relationship. They are cute together and she is stronger than she seems. I also enjoyed Penhallow's way of looking at the world and talking. He calls college students, "practice adults". Here is the definition from Penhallow's glossary:

 

Practice Adults:

Nocturnal creatures who seem to serve no useful purpose other than to keep taverns and pizza delivery people in business.

 

I highly recommend this book to middle-grade readers who enjoy dark fantasy with a touch of humor.

 

I read this for Snakes and Ladders space #16. Genre: fantasy.

I'm also using it for the Goodreads HA a to z challenge. :)

Fun paranormal romance series, this is just the beginning
Curse of the Gargoyle - Tara Nina

This was an interesting start to a series. I loved Ericka's resistance to believing in magic, curses, ghosts, and the like. It was fun watching her change. With the intense attraction between him and Ericka, Gavin tried to be a good man but struggled with his feelings. His chivalry was quite a pull for me. There were tears and chuckles throughout the story, and I look forward to finding more of the MacKinnons. I recommend this story.

I received a copy of this story through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.

Early Review! Not Her Gargoyle (Not This #4) Annie Nicholas!
Not Her Gargoyle - Annie Nicholas

 

 

Ruby is done with jerks, dead-end jobs, and eviction notices. Everyone else she knows is finding ways out of this crappy neighborhood, so why can’t she? Since opportunities refuse to fall from the sky, Ruby makes her own. To hell with the little voice in her heart whispering about love. She never met a man she wanted to keep…then she met a gargoyle. Men were boring after all.

 

Nick was a con, a thief, and a rogue. He couldn’t keep a dime in his pocket even if it was glued. Then he met a ruby. Not one from the earth but one of flesh and blood. And ass. Let’s not forget the ass. Stealing her heart was now all he wanted.

He has a plan that could make both their dreams come true. It only involves an itsy-bitsy risk. All they must do is rob a witch.

 

Oh, and avoid the dragons.

 

 

I just had the best time of my life, who would have thought that being a little on the gray side of life could be so much fun!

 

Ruby and Nick have amazing chemistry that draws readers into thieir hijinks with ease because they both have a unique way of looking at things and dealing with everything that life throws at them. Their romance isn't sweet, it's fun and kind of stuck on Ruby when she wasn't aware which was quite funny because Nick was one determined gargoyle and he decided that Ruby was his.

 

The plot is fast paced and full of excitement as Nick finds himself running from a dragon and that's just the beginning as Nick and Ruby just keep the thrills and the chuckles coming throughout and with some surprising twist to keep everyone guessing.

 

This is the first book in the Not This series that I have read and I have to say that Annie Nicholas did a great job of developing her characters and bring her charming and delightfully fun world to vivid life and I since was completely charmed by Not Her Gargoyle, I will be catching up on the series while await the next book.
