Publisher's Summary

Gryphons flying past skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago.
Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species, nor has she wanted to. Her life is as ordinary as it gets - that is, until one day she walks out of her apartment and is attacked by a mob of Zombies, only to be saved by a Gargoyle.
Gargoyles trust no one outside their Clan, but due to a cryptic prophecy, Terak, leader of the Gargoyles, has been watching over the human woman for months. While he can find no reason why the woman has been singled out, something about her stirs every protective instinct within him. When the attack confirms that the threats against her exist and are real, he convinces Larissa that though their races have never been allies, the best chance of discovering why she has been brought into his world is by working together.
In the course of their investigation Terak becomes entranced by his little human. But when he discovers why Necromancers want her and the great reward that awaits him if he betrays her, he must choose between the welfare of his Clan and not only Larissa's life, but the fate of this New Realm as well.

Fan Freakin Tastic!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I am not a very descriptive person but, WOW! I loved the Gargoyle angle. Right now everything seems to be centered on a Werewolf or Vampire. There are a mixture of races which gives me hope for this series. This is one of the few books that didn't point you to the answer in the first hour of the book and I enjoyed every minute of it. There were a lot of sub stories that didn't overwhelm the book or take over the story. There was just enough to let you know that there is a lot more going on than just this initial story. The heroine was a little weak, but her over protective family clearly showed you why. You get past that and the romance that builds between Terrick and Larrissa gives the story a chance to develop gradually instead of prematurely climaxing and throwing a lot of ridiculous misunderstandings in the way of an actual story. Or lots of sex. which is very irritating when you would like to understand the story itself. I liked it because I didn't have to spend 8 out of the 9 hours and 57 minutes listening the same sex positions in just about everyone's book. Thank you Danielle for giving us an actual tale to follow.!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stone Guardian?

When Terrick's warriors decided to follow him when the council in his Clan wavered on their loyalty to him.

Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

I LOVE Tavia Gilbert. I buy most books narrated by her because she is very good at giving characters their own voices in the stories she narrates.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Clash of the Realms

Any additional comments?

I would recommend Danielle Monsch as an author to watch along with this series.

Gargoyles and romance who needs anything else!

This book was great. I read it first in print but Tavia Gilbert really brings something to the telling of the story. I really enjoy Danielle Monsch writing style and can not wait for the next book in this series I really hope they do an audio version for that as well. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes gargoyles, suspense, romance, mayhem, and who also has a good sense of humor.

Rather good

Not a 'standard' urban fantasy.

An engaging story, if a little predictable. Still, there is enough about it that's unique to make it worth reading.

The main characters are beautifully described. They're a bit one dimensional but the heroes are heroes with secrets and the damsels in distress are sufficiently distressed.

All in all, enjoyable. I'll definitely get book 2 when it's available.

The narrator was so-so. She got a bit excited in the story, IMO. You'll see what I mean when you have a listen.

great read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

i would recommend this book to anyone, it is a fast moving fantasy love story, I loved it and can't wait to read more. the narration is good as well.

What did you like best about this story?

all the different races within the story who worked together, and the bravery of the heroine especially when she defended the hero.

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances? How does this one compare?

i have listened to her before and find her very easy to listen too, the variations she gets in her voice are very good.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

a few times it made me groan that they were going to loose each other. some of the other world characters made me smile in their discription.

Any additional comments?

read it, read it
