Cover and Blurb Reveal: Heart of Stone by Christine Warren
I’ve always been a fan of Christine Warren’s “Others” series, in particular Big Bad Wolf, so I was a little sad when Ms. Warren decided to take a break from writing more novels in this series to explore new venues. However, as a writer, I know how important it is to keep a “fresh” perspective lest you suffer from incurable writer’s block.
And then I saw the cover for Ms. Warren’s upcoming Heart of Stone and nearly had a nosebleed…
And then I read the blurb and all but stopped breathing…
Kees is a gargoyle, one of a group of supernatural guardians created to protect the world from the seven demons of the Dark. In an earlier age, he and his brother warriors defeated creatures and banished them. With their duty done, the guardians settled in to sleep until a new threat arose. So why on earth would he awaken to nothing more than a small female woman?
Gargoyles are the strike force of demons, but Kees cannot see the threat. It certainly isn’t coming from Ella, but something about her must have woken him from his sleep. She must be the key to uncovering his new mission. With her by his side, he begins to unravel of trail of clues that leads to only one conclusion: somehow, the portals he and his brothers had thought were sealed have begun to open.
And moments of hyperventilating later, I let out what can only be described as a “fangirl screech!” (A hybrid cross between a scream and an “eeep.”)
Gargoyles?! Gargoyles! These elusive creatures are rarely explored in paranormal romance, so I’m massively glad that when Ms. Warren discussed exploring “new” venues, she actually meant it. I can’t wait to read the story she’s come up with! 😀
Heart of Stone releases December 31, 2013.
What elusive supernatural creature do you think should be explored in paranormal romance? How do you feel about gargoyles?
