Summary

Forget everything you know about the world. Vampires exist, Werewolves exist, monsters hide in the shadows, and it's my job to make sure they obey our laws. My name is Evelyn, and I'm a gargoyle. The last one or so I thought. A team of Gargoyles have found me. And for the first time in over a century, I'm not the only one of my kind around, which is a good thing since demons are slipping into this world fully formed. 

The bodies are piling up. Something is going on in my city, and it looks like I'm going to need the backup.

Definately recommend!

I rate alot of books but not many get my lazy butt to actually write praise! Evie is a heroine I can get behind in every way. Its been awhile since Ive been so happy with the female lead. I absolutely adore how she is so badass and strong, as well as scholarly smart and independent. Although who wouldn't be after 100 years of youth, am I right!? She's no whiner, she isn't faint of heart and thank you thank you..she doesn't overthink every tiny thing, she knows what she wants and commits to her choices come what may. No over the top phyco mental babble here!! yay! Go Evie! I haven't finished the book yet, but was excited to share.

Ummm Yes!

Yes! What s great start to a new series! I now must go find more of her stuff because I need a distraction from the fact that I can’t read more of this one!

Congratulations to both the author, narrators, and you the reader!

Love the book, not so much the narrators

I love Blt's writing and reading the books but both series (the veil diaries and book of stone) have narrators that I just can't get behind. I listened all the way through but I was tempted to stop because the voices were driving me nuts. The male and female narrators in this book used different voices for the characters. The male made Zahur sound like a crotchety old man. While the female narrator made him soundyoung and sophisticated. And there were some names and words that weren't pronounced correctly.

BL... try Nicole Poole!

Love this story - can’t wait for more!

I’ll be honest, I read this book on kindle when it first released. I love this author, and I love this series. The plot is unique and I enjoy the characters.

I have one complaint; I may be a bit of an audiophile like Lexie (per her definition). I can’t listen to the male actor’s voice for Zahur without hearing Voldemort from the HP movies.

Not a huge deal, because there’s not a ton from his POV, and I’m probably just a crazy person, but I struggled a bit with just that one thing.

Overall, I loved it!

GREAT start to new series!

I never thought I would get into books about gargoyles. Leave it to B.L. Brunnemer to show me the light. cant wait to see how the story develops.

Umm, it was okay, struggled thru it

I really liked the heroine. The main male was unlike able. I kept talking brakes from the book because it was not that interesting.

Great story! Needs new male narrator...

I really enjoyed the pace of this story as well as getting to know the multiple characters. however, while the female narrator did a wonderful job of allowing the story to come through in her narration, the male narrator put on voices that distracted me from listening to the story. There is another review that someone said that he made them think of Voldemort from Harry Potter and I could not agree more. Other than that, I am sincerely looking forward to the rest of this series and I will definitely be purchasing them.

Dead end

Didn’t like the ending, too abrupt and unfinished didn’t even lead up to a second book, so what happened?
