Book Review

23744395Gargoyles were created centuries ago to protect mankind, but something went horribly wrong. Now only the sentinel—a mortal chosen to control the stone beasts—stands between them and their human prey.

When the latest sentinel is killed, Kate Mercer is destined to take his place. But Kate has enough going on in her life—like a skyrocketing film career, a delusional ex-boyfriend, and a crazed stalker who will stop at nothing to get to her. But the powers that be have decided, and Kate is transported to Shadow Wood, a mysterious castle that serves as a sanctuary for the supernatural. Although beautiful, Shadow Wood is no safe place for a mere mortal. Yet Kate is drawn not only to the gargoyles but also to Ian McGuire, a charming novelist who might be in the greatest danger of all.

As Kate decides whether to accept the most perilous role of her life, she discovers there are more secrets than answers within the castle’s walls. Her survival and Ian’s depend on her ability to master the gargoyles before time runs out. Is fate really cast in stone?


Trigger Warning: Stalker, Murder, Torture, Blood

I was drawn into reading this book since the synopsis was so interesting to me. The main character can control Gargoyles?! How awesome is that. So I requested to read Of Shadow and Stone, and then I was accepted to do so!

Of Shadow and Stone is an incredibly fast paced read. I believe read the book in a few hours. I know that I read at least 60% of this novel in one sitting.

There are multiple points of view, but the main view we read from is Kate. Who is particularly badass and is an actor by profession.

Interesting storyline. I really enjoyed the fact that for the most part, the story took place in Vancouver. I didn’t expect there to be different supernatural elements to the novel. Yet when the other supernaturals were introduced I was kind of surprised! I only thought that this book would be about gargoyle coming to life.

I actually really enjoyed that we got to experience via Kate, how exactly the gargoyles work and whatnot.

I gave Of Shadow and Stone, 3 of 5 stars on GoodReads.

Happy Reading!
Adele
