Publisher's Summary

What secrets lie shrouded in darkness?Okay, so jogging through Central Park after midnight wasn't a bright idea. But Margrit Knight never thought she'd encounter a dark new world filled with magical beings, not to mention a dying woman and a mysterious stranger with blood on his hands. Her logical lawyer instincts told her it couldn't all be real, but she could hardly deny what she'd seen...and touched.The mystery man, Alban, was a gargoyle. One of the fabled Old Races who had hidden their existence for centuries. Now he was a murder suspect, and he needed Margrit's help to take the heat off him and find the real killer. And as the dead pile up, it's a race against the sunrise to clear Alban's name and keep them both alive.

Entertaining if formulaic

Being a fan of the Anita Blake series, I thought I would give this book a try... It took me a little listening, but I started to enjoy the reader after a little bit... Yes, there's a lot of repetition in the writing but the story moved along enough to keep me interested... I recommend this for anyone who enjoys a lighter fantasy novel - one that is incorporated with a familiar environment (i.e. the US, New York, modern day, etc)... I've ordered the second book so you know it's entertaining enough to inspire caring in the characters.

I liked it and hated it

For the most part I would say that it was worth the listen, and the credit. I enjoyed the Characters, the overall story and the narrator.

That being said some of the parts in this book made me cringe the way the author describes things such as facial expressions is terrible, at times it felt like a bad TV movie with horrible actors. On top of that is the "romance" it seemed a bit forced and I actually thought at one point that the author is turned on by the idea of a massive gargoyle member... Crass I know but that's how I felt. I should state that the topic of the Gargoyles manliness is handled as tastefully as it possibly could be.

I liked the story it was enjoyable, its characters engaging, and the narrator is superb. If you like fun supernatural stories then give it a shot as I said its worth the listen. Its not quite as good as the Dresden files by Jim Butcher, but until Audible gets all of that series its a fun alternative!

There's a nice compliment sandwich.
