Publisher's Summary

Deciphering an ancient alchemy book is more difficult than Zoe Faust bargained for. She'd much rather be gardening and exploring her new hometown of Portland, Oregon - but time is running out for living gargoyle Dorian Robert-Houdin. If Zoe isn't able to unlock an unusual alchemy book's secrets soon, the French gargoyle will remain awake but trapped in stone forever.
When Zoe gives herself a rare night out to attend a classic magic show, she realizes the stage magicians are much more than they seem. A murder at the theater leads back to a string of unsolved robberies and murders in Portland's past - and a mystery far more personal than Zoe and Dorian ever imagined.

Good story but repeating past facts over and over felt like she was writing to someone with memory problems.

Good story but repeating past facts over and over felt like she was writing to someone with memory problems. I had to stop listening from the annoyance a few times before I finished the book.

Interesting Premise, but enough with Vegan thing

Any additional comments?

I think the premise of both books is quite good, but I am NOT interested in hearing about her Vegan beliefs if I am reading a mystery. Performance comes across as "holier-than-thou", which is part writer's fault and part narrator. Would I read a third book? Good question, I probably would, because they are obviously going to France to save Dorian, but PLEASE, you've made your point about the Vegan lifestyle. Both books would be novellas (but very good novellas) without the New Age / Vegan propaganda. Yes, I do eat veggies - on the side, with a steak!
