Wendy's Review: Stone Guardian (Entwined Realms #1) by Danielle Monsch

Paperback374 pages
Published July 3rd 2013 by Romantic Geek Publishing

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.

Oh my gosh...LOVED this book and can't wait to get my greedy little fingers on the rest!! Monsch describes her characters so well you feel like you are watching them instead of reading. The story of two realms colliding and becoming one was a great spin on this tale. Throw in some super sexy gargoyles and wow what a story. I just loved the story of Larissa and Terak and of course all the secondary characters that I know will make some amazing books themselves. This story took off from page one and only let up cause it ended. It's a must read, you won't be disappointed! I don't give 5 stars lightly. And as to the 'errors' that people say are there, they didn't really bother me, not to the point that it ruined the story. There were a couple slips but nothing that you were like 'what the heck'.
