I need to begin this review with some rather strong feelings regarding the cover. This is not the cover for the book that I have. Normally, I don't mind all that much that booklikes doesn't give you an option to switch covers. But when I looked up this book to add to my reading list on here, and saw this was the only cover available, I tried to update it. This is the first time it's really annoyed me that the reader can't select the actual cover image for their particular edition. It's not that I consider myself a cover snob... Well... maybe a LITTLE. But this actually happens to be a novel that I chose primarily based on the cover at the time of download. Which was this one:
I love this cover. Dark and brooding. Clearly Paranormal. I think it accurately portrays the novel inside. The original cover? Not so much. I don't know that I would've picked up the novel based off the original cover without someone suggesting it to me personally. I'm still kind of new to booklikes, so maybe I just haven't discovered the right way to change covers. If this is the case, please feel free to give me step-by-step.
As far as the novel itself, I loved it! The gargoyle spin isn't something you see a lot of, and I found it refreshing. Conor, one of many gargoyles tasked with protecting humans and, at times, other creatures is assigned to Emma's protection. Emma has no idea she's a half-demon and has a myriad of powers just waiting to be unleashed. Cute characters, lovely fantasy world, and great writing. Can't wait to follow the rest of the series.
