Christine Warren's new gargoyle series starting with "Heart of Stone"


Ella Harrow is trying to carve out a normal life for herself. Well, as normal as an art geek with psychic abilities can hope for. As museum docent and gift-shop manager, Ella is able to keep her distance from people—and her powers in check—while surrounding herself with the artifacts she loves. But how on earth is she supposed to act normal when a thousand-year-old statue on the museum’s terrace suddenly comes to life?
 Not your ordinary gargoyle, Kees has been asleep for eons, waiting for a portent of evil to wake him from his slumber. Kees isn’t a vision; he’s a bat-winged guardian created to protect the world from the seven demons of the Dark. Somehow, Ella triggered his reawakening. Maybe the demons have been unleashed? Maybe his heart is finally ready to be chiseled open? The fate of the world isn’t carved in stone… yet.

I've never been a big reader of Ms Warrens books, but this was the first in a new series so I decided to give it a try. Besides, its the first time Ive come across a Gargoyle book!
Ella has always been different, and after a tragedy took her parents, one she blames herself for, she closes herself off from the world. She works in a museum and avoids people if she can. After a big even at the library, she is attacked by a seven foot tall.. thing with wings, horns, and fangs. Kees knows Ella for what she is. A Warden, a magical human able to help fight the Seven demons when they are summoned. Ella, of course, totally doesnt believe it, until she sees for herself what the servants of the demons can do. But can a gargoyle have emotion and fall in love?

It was a interesting book, not sure if I really liked it or not though. Will try the next book in the series when it comes out and see.
