    1. This book in one gif:You are quite welcome.

    2. I would almost say this book was for teens, except for the blatant sexuality throughout it. Now, the characters don't actually do the deed, but it's a very close call many times. Almost like this was written to sell the book, not to tell an interesting story. I was hoping for an in depth urban fantasy, but the magic in the book wasn't well explained or used. It was like the author expected the reader to already know how the magic worked. If this is the first or only book in this series, it was v [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this book. It was different to what I was expecting. Lillian lives with her grandmother and in her garden one day she is attacked by a group of people with magical powers. A voice tells her to run into the maze to the gargoyle statue there and that changes everything! She is seriously injured, but her gargoyle wakes up and saves her. She soon finds out that she is not human, but a dryad instead and the gargoyle is her protector. Her grandmother is not fully human either and soon [...]

    4. I've had this book on my kindle for a while, and I don't know why it took me so long to read it. Classic girl doesn't know she had power or who she is until some big bad shows up to take said power from her. Then it gets better.Witches, Fae, direwolves, vampires, Gods and Goddess', Unicorns!!Even lesser know beings like leshii and dryads. You don't get many books like this. It's a love story and a battle and awesome!!

    5. It's as Good as its CoverLillian is a Dryad being raised by a witch in the mortal world. After being attacked by monsters, she brings her gargoyle to life, and she learns he has been alive for many years. After a series of events, Lillian learns she is a sorceress and Gregory is her protector, and together they must defeat the Evil in the mortal realm, within herself, and thwart the plans of Lady of Battles.I felt like I had to trudge through knee deep cement to get through this. I almost gave u [...]

    6. Great readThis is my first book I have read by author Lisa Blackwood. I found this tale intriguing and full of surprises. I loved the storyline and the characters. This was very different from any books I have read so far. I look forward to checking out more books by Lisa

    7. Earlier this week, I got notice from that I had purchased this book for $0.00 -- I thought it might be a Giveaway but couldn't find any other e-mails about it and didn't even find the book in my list of Giveaways entered or won! I took a peek at it and confess - I was hooked! It's not my usual genre of reading, but Lisa Blackwood is a very good writer and has obviously thought through a lot of the loopholes. The protagonist thinks she's a 22 year old human woman, but it turns out that she's a [...]

    8. I had seen a lot of reviews about this book and I was pretty sure I wasn't going to like it. I'm not a massive fan of fantasy magic and I hate romance so it wasn't looking great. But I LOVE the book cover and I liked the short prequel I read to the series and decided to give it a try anyway.Gregory is a gargoyle who can take human form and is sworn to protect his sorceress. They have been reborn to different forms over the many years together and always unite in a partnership to defeat evil. Thi [...]

    9. Okay, I admit I’m a sucker for gargoyle heroes and beauty and the beast type stories. (I hereby place all blame of that on a certain Disney cartoon that I used to watch as a kid during the early 90s). And along that theme I’m continuing my quest for great gargoyle reads. LOL.Stone’s Kiss by Ms. Blackwood caught my attention (actually the gargoyle statue on the cover caught my attention.) And I’m glad it did. This novel length ebook was sweet, a touch humorous and a bit dark at times. A m [...]

    10. Lillian has spent her days trying to remember her past and an accident as a young girl robbed her those memories. Everyday she sits in her maze courtyard next the one thing that comforts her a Gargoyle statue. In a instant things change when a group of otherworldly creatures threatens to destroy her and the only one who she can run to is made of stone. Gregory has been in a healing sleep encased in stone for years until the blood of his beloved sorceress awakens him. Lillian will found out that [...]

    11. I liked this story quite a bit and was pleasantly surprised by it. The characters and the overall story were engaging and kept me reading far longer than I should have with the other things I had to do today. I'm a sucker for gargoyle stories apparently, as that's what drew me in first. But then I discovered the dryad angle and I was hooked. Incredibly unlikely pairing but it worked tremendously well. Overall the story was smooth, though with a few bobbles (demon possession and split personaliti [...]

    12. Was an incredibly fast read. It was hard for me to put down. Found it to be a pleasant mix of young adult and fantasy romance. I loved the premise of a gargoyle being not only a protector, but love interest.I did have one issue, I either missed how old the main character is in this lifetime or it isn't stated clearly. This leads me to questions about school or a job. It appears that Lillian had neither.It seems like plot points are not finished by the end of the book, but I think that was intent [...]

    13. This book was a strange cross between YA and romance. Tons of heavy "almost" sexual encounters but the main characters never do get to doing the deed.As a fantasy author I really enjoyed the diverse characters in this book, as a reader I was annoyed by the fact that not all of the different species are well identified or explained. Too much was left for my imagination to fill in.Overall, it was a good book and worth the read. I probably won't be reading more in this series but then again, maybe [...]

    14. A solid first novel in the paranormal romance genre. I found both of the main characters very likable, though I wouldn't have minded a little bit more character depth. The book was very fast paced and exciting and it kept me turning the pages. The battles were well thought out and described.Occasionally the dialog seemed a little stilted to me, but for the most part it was well done as well.I'd recommend this book to any readers of paranormal romance. A Gargoyle main character is certainly a gre [...]

    15. Glad this was a freebie.I know I've said this a lot, but grammar often kills the book for me. This book was no exception, but the worst part was the plot holes, confusing scenes, and raunch. Had to skip over so much because it seemed to be all sex and gore.For my clean readers:A ton of language, though no f-bomb, and massive amounts of sexual innuendos. Blood letting rituals, and a lot of violence.

    16. Received the book as a freebie back in May 2012 and only got around it now.The story line was creative. The author's imagination running wild. Romance is the center of the story as two souls came together at last after years of separation. Although not a big fan of gargoyles the writer brought a new human element to the story so that you could experience the closeness between the two main characters. The story was entertaining.

    17. I really wanted to give this five stars for its originality of making an actual gargoyle the Hero of the story, but the ending dragged out and became too repetitive for me. Gregory would get mortally wounded, Lillian would save him; Lillian gets mortally wounded, Gregory saves her; Again, Gregory gets mortally wounded and Lillian saves him. etc! It just kept happening. Other than that, I really enjoyed reading this book and hope to eventually read the next in the series.

    18. I liked this book enough to want to read the sequel. It has its problems, there seems to be repetitive scenes of either the girl or the gargoyle getting wounded and almost dying. The other one comes to their rescue and gives them blood to save them, rinse, repeat. I did find the characters interesting and the story line compelling. I am hopeful that the sequels will add detail into the world building and develop more of the characters.

    19. Really DifferentDryads, gargoyles, vampires, dire wolves. Not your same old, same old story. Lillian has no memories before she was eight years old, she certainly had no clue magic was real and she wasn't human or that her stone gargoyle was a living sentient protector, until she needed that protection desperately.

    20. Awesome bookThe author is so creative and talented which keeps you on the edge of your seat. Loved the chemistry of the characters. They are interesting, complex, and full of surprises. You could feel their pain,sorrow, joy, and their forbidden love for each other. Truly enjoyable book and keep them coming.

    21. Currently reading I love everything about this book so far. Just wish there was more intensity between Gregory and Lilian I hope they finally engage in sex because this back and forth is driving me insane. Lisa I really like your work but please put a little more sexual heat into the story

    22. Every woman should begin with a Gargoyle in her garden. Aside from wishing for an ageless adult female, it is a great start to a fantasy trilogy. Every woman holds a bit of magic somewhere, LIsa B definitely has it in the right places.

    23. Magical loveLoved this book. So unique and caught my interest and held it. I haven't read many gargoyle books but this was a great one. It shows love can endure so much and come out on top.

    24. I'll have to write a review later, as this book was EXACTLY what I want in a gargoyle romance but don't have the time right now. Lisa, this book freakin ROCKED! #ReadIt

    25. 3.5 stars, actually.I was impressed with the obviously complicated and rich backstory behind the two main characters of Lillian, who accidentally wakes a stone statue of a Gargoyle when she's attacked by evil strangers one day, and Gregory, aforementioned Gargoyle.Things aren't as simple as they seem; she isn't just a Sorceress, and he isn't just a gargoyle. There are other powers in other realms at work here, and lots of interesting conflict to discover.I was also confused at times by the compl [...]

    26. My Disclaimer: I was provided a free copy of this book by the author’s representative. I am providing an honest review for which I am receiving no compensation of any kind. All opinions are fully my own.~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat ReviewMy Review: ✮✮✮✮This was a good story. Gregory sounds like a whole lot more fun than the gargoyles in The Hunchback of Notre Dame! He’s a lot bigger for one thing. And he’s sexy!I felt the characters were well-written. Humorous at times. While Lill [...]

    27. I wanted to love this book. I mean, gargoyle and sorceress, right? What a combo, sure to be awesome. Except it isn’t. Bummer!I was left too many times while reading going, “Wait, what?” Too many weird left turns. She’s his sorceress, no she’s a dryad. She may have been contaminated by the Lady of Battles, oh no she has a demon inside her. She has no memory, she has a memory, so take away her memory. Is she evil? Or isn’t she evil and if she says she’s evil is she really trying to p [...]
