Hanging with Levet on my ARC Shelf

Just got a arc of A Very Levet Christmas by Alexandra Ivy, and I am very psyched to start reading. Levet, is a very funny, very tiny gargoyle who annoys the heck of the heroes of the Guardians of Eternity series, but charms all the heroines. 😉

Blurb:

A gargoyle of Levet’s charm and intelligence should not be facing a solitary Christmas. True, he may appear a little unconventional, not to mention unconventionally little even for a gargoyle. But what Levet lacks in height he makes up for in loyalty, and being banned from the festivities surrounding the Queen of Weres’ new pups is quite unfair.

So when a beautiful Christmas angel begs for help in fulfilling her duties, Levet has nothing better to do than agree. Armed with a magical wand, Levet confronts Damon, a pureblood Were intent on seizing the throne. Challenging the King will put the pups at risk and drive away Damon’s potential mate, Gia. Who better to convince Damon to choose love, not war, than a gargoyle expert in “amour”? With a little magic, and a lot of Levet, this may yet be a truly wonderful Christmastime!

Excerpt shared by Ms. Ivy on Facebook earlier today:

Thoroughly annoyed, Levet folded his arms over his tiny chest, his large wings that shimmered in brilliant shades of blue and crimson with golden veins stretched out behind him.

“What do you mean I am not allowed to pass?” He tilted his head to make sure the moonlight captured the beauty of his stunted horns and handsome gargoyle features. He could only presume the thick-skulled hound didn’t recognize him. “Do you know who I am?”

“I don’t give a shit who you are.” Hess turned his head to spit on the newly fallen snow. “The King was very specific. Only family is given permission to enter the lair.”

Levet scowled. “But I am family.”

Hess narrowed his gaze, his breath sending out small puffs of icy fog. It was barely ten degrees but the cur was wearing jeans and a too-tight muscle shirt.

“You?”

“Oui. I am like a brother to Harley.” Levet pointed toward the large house on top of the hill, referring to the Queen of Weres and one of his dearest friends. “Go ask her.”

“Everyone knows that the Queen only has sisters,” Hess said. “No brothers.”

Levet rolled his eyes. Did Weres deliberately choose the stupidest humans to turn into curs?

“I said like a brother, you imbecile. Clearly we are not the same species.”

Hess gave low growl, reaching down to grab Levet by the horns and yank him off the ground.

“What did you call me?”

“Eek.” Levet dangled helplessly, his tail snapping furiously behind him. “Release me, you oversized Chihuahua.”

This one is sure to be a fun ride!
