The Hero: Lucan – he was a gargoyle shifter who got involved with a witch, Veronique, against his clans wishes. He thought they were just having some fun, while she took things more seriously. When things went bad, she cursed him and his brothers, Danton and Mattias. They were locked in stone for centuries, only able to come out once in a while to help humans in trouble and only able to stay out for 24 hours at a time.
The Story: Memories of the witch had left the brothers as part of the curse. Lucan wanted revenge against Veronique but couldn’t even remember what she looked like. At some point after years of guarding the Paris streets, they were approached by a vampire named Michel to come to the US and be guards in his goth nightclub called Vamps.
This book is told via solo narration and was narrated by Bridget Bordeaux. She has a good voice though each character sounds pretty much the same, she distinguishes between different people by different accents not changing her voice. I didn’t really like the french accents. The story is only the back story of the three brothers, no romance. The book was good for a prequel with just background story information, though I wish Lucan had a romance, there was the start of Danton’s romance which comes later in the series.
