Publisher's Summary

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? 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.

Not fully flushed out but will pick up book two

The concept of the book and the series is intriguing, I just wish that it had been more interesting and fast paced. I love CW and really wanted to love this book but it just didn’t turn out that way, I did enjoy it as most of the storyline was good but I felt that the quick discover as notes in the book to explain what an ancient gargoyle never knew to be an afterthought and just fell short and way too hurried for something so important. I understand that a lot of background had to be laid in this book and I did enjoy the book although it was slow going at times so I will check out the next book in the series, to see what happens from here.

I was so bored by like the end of the first chapter, I skipped four chapters until the Gargoyles woke up.... but I was still bored..

The narration seem to be pretty decent ironically...but eh, I would pass on this one... There are better paranormal stories out there...
