Review: Stone Guardian by Danielle Monsch

Stone Guardian
Release Date: July 3, 2013
Publisher: Romantic Geek Publishing
ISBN:  1938593103
ISBN13: 9781938593109
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Review Copy Source: Author
Gryphons flying past skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago.

Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species, nor has she wanted to. Her life is as ordinary as it gets - that is, until one day she walks out of her apartment and is attacked by a mob of Zombies, only to be saved by a Gargoyle.

Gargoyles trust no one outside their Clan, but due to a cryptic prophecy, Terak, Leader of the Gargoyles, has been watching over the human woman for months. While he can find no reason why the woman has been singled out, something about her stirs every protective instinct within him. When the attack confirms that the threats against her exist and are real, he convinces Larissa that though their races have never been allies, the best chance of discovering why she has been brought into his world is by working together.

In the course of their investigation Terak becomes entranced by his little human. But when he discovers why Necromancers want her and the great reward that awaits him if he betrays her, he must choose between the welfare of his Clan and not only Larissa’s life, but the fate of this New Realm as well.

What a world! The world that Danielle Monsch created for her characters was really unique and kept me reading. The opening of STONE GUARDIAN gives you a background on the world and pulls at your heartstrings, the rest of the book pulls you in and makes you want to stay!

The characters are just as fabulous as the world. As the only girl in her family Larissa's father and brothers go out of their way to make sure she is always safe. She is finally out on her and although she lives in a human-only city, the paranormal is about to find her. But wait, here comes Terak to save the day. Terak is a sexy Gargoyle who due to a prophecy has decided to watch over Larissa and keep her safe. His guardianship duty is about to end, his charge has been nothing but safe until the night zombies attack. From that point on neither of their lives will be the same. 

Larissa has spent her whole life safe and ignorant of the world outside her human-only city. Her father refused to talk to her about the world outside and until the zombies attacked and Terak showed up she had let it go.  She has no clue why she would be targeted and she doesn't want her family to know about anything that is happening. Terak has no clue why Larissa is important to his clans future but he has agreed to guard her anyways. She intrigues him like no other and he can't help but want to keep her safe from harm. He goes against everything his clan approves of to protect her and chooses to continue protecting her even when he's faced with losing his clan. These two are nothing short of opposites but they grow closer and grow a bond deeper than either could have imagined. There is also a great cast of secondary characters which ends up being pretty important. Future books in this series will feature a different couple.
The action was intense, the romance was steamy and the world was great. With the great storyline and fast pace I was never bored. STONE GUARDIAN was a very enjoyable read all around.

I gave it 4/5 stars
