Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Westlyn – she had always thought she was a witch without magic, but has recently found out that there seems to be much more to her origins than meets the eye. She is hiding from a powerful mage family that wants to bind her to a demon and may have had a hand in some terrible things that happened to her as a child. She is staying with the four gargoyles that saved her and she has a connection with each of them.
The Heroes: Jude, Augustine, Rook, Drae – They are gargoyles that run a criminal empire. They are stone by day and at night they use glamour to appear human. They have been cursed for thousands of years and nobody knows about them. The supernatural world thinks they are Fae, The Fae can see through the glamour to men with wings, horns and tails, but are sworn to secrecy. The curse was a combination of demon and dark Fae magic so will be hard to break.
The Story: Every time Westlyn and the guys find out something new about her, her background or why the Forsythe’s want her for with regards to the demon possessing Hunter Forsythe, all they are left with is more questions. It is like two steps forward and one step back or sometimes it is one step forward and two steps back. Though I have to say it keeps things mighty interesting. Also in between every step and sometimes during the steps, things get pretty darn steamy between Westlyn and one or more of her gargoyles.
In this book we get to find out what caused the gargoyles to get cursed. I won’t give away any spoilers about what happened but to say it was a good story and it involved humans and the Dark Fae. We know from this and other books, that they Fae can’t lie, but they are tricksters and always put some sort of loophole in any agreement they make. We also get more information about Drae which I really liked.
This book was told in multiple points of view via dual narration, and was narrated by Vanessa Edwin, Shane East, Aaron Shedlock, and Aiden Snow. This has been one of my favorite audiobook series so far, with such a great cast of narrators. The only thing that could have made it better would be if it were done in duet narration where every narrator does their own parts no matter whose point of view the chapter is in. Though I still give this 5 microphones for narration even with dual narration.
