Publisher's Summary

Only a rag-tag team of gargoyles stands between humanity and extinction.
Hell has released its ravening horde of demons, leaving most of humanity a puke-spewing, head-spinning mess of possession.
Humanity's last hope? A team of misfit gargoyles - including a cigar chomping, hard-ass grotesque - come alive and ready for battle during the End of Days. They guard the last cathedral-turned-sanctuary atop a bald knoll in the North Carolina mountains.
Gargoyle protection grudgingly extends to any human who can make it inside the sanctuary, but the power of the stonecutter blood magic, which protects the sanctuary, may not be enough when a rogue grotesque and his badly-wounded ward arrive.
All the hounds of hell are on their heels. The last sanctuary is about to fall.

Quick, fun and highly entertaining

Creatures made of stone and powered by ancient magics. Carved to fight. To protect. The wards under their care are in danger of being possessed by demons bent on world domination. Cathedrals are falling and things are getting dire. It’s up to the G’s to find a way to send them back to hell.

I honestly should have hated this one. It should have been too YA’ey. Too hokey. Too fantasy. Much to my surprise, I really enjoyed it and it was none of those things. The only thing hokey about it, in fact, was me. That’s what I get for pre-judging a book. Bad, reader-dude. Bad.

This was quick, fun and highly entertaining with an intriguing premise that was executed well.

Jeff Hays narration of this one was spot on. There were several unique characters here and I can see where it may have been challenging to do them all without getting over the top or silly. I will admit that there are some synthesized voices here that took me a minute to get used to, but once I did, it fit the story nicely.

Very well done all the way around. 3.5+ Audible Stars rounded up to 4 because I went into this with a poor attitude and the strength and originality of the work proved me wrong. A solid, good time, fun and quick listen.

Grotesques and Gargoyles to the rescue!

Any additional comments?

I received a copy of an audible version of this book from Jeff Hayes, the narrator and I'll definitely be looking for his books in the future! The gates of hell have opened and the Gargoyles and the Grotesques have awakened to protect the last of mankind. Our heros are guarding and protecting the last of mankind in a sanctuary, protected by magic. This is not to be missed if you like end of the world stories and are sick and tired of zombies! I started this book in the morning, and finished this afternoon while doing yard work. That's the great thing about an audible book, you don't have to stand still to listen. The story was great, the narration superb! Each character was given his own voice, his own individual personality. Stellar performance. Don't miss the book!
