What can I say? I love Mary Calmes and Greg Tremblay. Add them together and I am one happy camper.
Though you could enjoy Chevalier without first reading/listening to Romanus, I would not recommend it.
Picking up a year after the end of Romanus, Mason "Mace" James is settled into his chasse (or tribe) of gargoyles, doing well in his day job as a fireman, and realizing the future he wants with his lover, Luc.
I loved how, once Mace accepted his feelings and hope for the future, he was unwavering in his love and support of Luc and their relationship. I especially appreciated the history and explanation of Mace's goji roots we get in this installment.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Greg Tremblay's narration!
Tremblay's character voices and accents are lovely, and he illustrates the emotions (passion, tenderness, exasperation, and even anger) in the story so well, managing to draw the listener in almost effortlessly, creating a whole world that I didn't want to leave.
Greg Tremblay gives another fantastic performance!

First, you must read Romanus before you read this. It won’t really make sense as a standalone.
We met the two lovers Luc and Mason when Mason had stumbled upon Luc’s chasse of gargoyles to find out that Mason was actually a Romanus, something revered by the gargoyles. Unfortunately, they don’t know much about what that means and the main driving force in this story is to find out just what it means to be a Romanus so that the tension in the chasse will let up.
There’s an added element of mystery when a family comes from France claiming to be related to Mason. Some threats are made and Mason and Luc fly over the ocean to research being a Romanus with the keeper of the gargoyle history and to find out more about Mason’s family as well.
Meanwhile, at every turn, Luc is met with derision, scorn and contempt because he is of a “lower class” than the Romanus – at least historically. Mason will have none of this and this helps Luc and Mason to iron out their own relationship issues.
I fell in love with Romanus years ago and was so psyched to see this sequel finally come about! It does not disappoint! In typical Mary form, Mason is absolutely perfect, Luc is tough as all get out and the bad guys are really bad and easily seen through. But… there’s some fascinating twists and turns this story takes that keep the storyline fresh and proves to me – again – that when Mary writes paranormal she really shines her brightest.
I loved this sequel and highly recommend it to fans of paranormal stories, fans of Mary Calmes and fans of Romanus and Gargoyles in general.
Greg Tremblay rocks this - AGAIN. He's such an amazing performer. He brings these stories to life and lets us listeners BE THERE in the action. Highly Recommended!
