In the New Realms, love can be the most dangerous battle of all…
Terak has fought all enemies to claim Larissa. It doesn’t matter his own Clan looks upon the union with misgivings. It doesn’t matter her family see a monster when they see him.
It doesn’t matter, because Larissa is his.
And any who would try to take her away? They’ll see what a Gargoyle will do to protect his mate.
Stone Embrace takes place directly after Stone Guardian ends and is NOT meant to be read alone. I adored the full length book and the world Monsch had created within it so it was a no brainer that I had to pick this one up.
Larissa and her gargoyle leader, Terak have just embarked on a budding relationship and now they must sit down with her father who is less than enthused about them. Being a police officer sworn to protect the public, he knows first hand how dangerous the paranormal population can be and now that he knows gargoyles exist he’s even more convinced of the threat.
Of course these two virile men are both intent on keeping Larissa safe, though they have two very different ideas of how to go about that. I hated her father trying to plant the seed of doubt in her mind but could understand his desperate attempt to regain control over the situation. It’s obvious how much she adores Terak and how the feeling is mutual so her father may have won the short battle but Terak definitely won the big one.
This was a super fast read that only took me about 40 minutes but it was 40 minutes well spent. I want to crawl in this world Monsch has made and build my own life there. The tension between Larissa and Terak is spot on and perfectly done. It’s vivid and lush and I cannot wait for the next full length book! Also….GARGOYLES. Nuff said.
I give Stone Embrace by Danielle Monsch 4 stars!
