Heart of Stone by Christine Warren
Heart of Stone
Ella Harrow is trying to carve out a normal life for herself. Well, as normal as an art geek with psychic abilities can hope for. As museum docent and gift-shop manager, Ella is able to keep her distance from people—and her powers in check—while surrounding herself with the artifacts she loves. But how on earth is she supposed to act normal when a thousand-year-old statue on the museum’s terrace suddenly comes to life?
HEART OF STONE
Not your ordinary gargoyle, Kees has been asleep for eons, waiting for a portent of evil to wake him from his slumber. Kees isn’t a vision; he’s a bat-winged guardian created to protect the world from the seven demons of the Dark. Somehow, Ella triggered his reawakening. Maybe the demons have been unleashed? Maybe his heart is finally ready to be chiseled open? The fate of the world isn’t carved in stone… yet.
When I found out that Warren was going to write about gargoyles I can't tell you how happy I was. I will admit to my slight love of Goliath from the cartoon show Gargoyles. Of course I was also a tiny bit worried that when I read Heart of Stone I would be busy comparing it to her other books and finding it lacking. But I'm happy to say that it never happened. I almost, remember I said almost, liked it better then her Other series. I loved both Ella & Kees. Their relationship is such a loving, sweet one. Reading on how Kees figures out he's has human emotions is so touching. I laughed, worried and even shed a tear or two. This is well worth your time. It's perfect for these cold days. Happy reading!
I received a ARC for a honest review.
