I couldn’t be more excited about this book. I’ve been following Michelle Muto for a while now and I become a bigger fan with every book she writes. Of Shadow and Stone takes things to a whole new level… plus, it has a gorgeous cover, don’t you think?
Humans are so unobservant. All they have to do is look up… and hope the gargoyles looking back down don’t target them as prey.
Gargoyles were created centuries ago to protect mankind, but something went horribly wrong. Now only the sentinel—a mortal chosen to control the stone beasts—stands between them and their human prey.
When the latest sentinel is killed, Kate Mercer is destined to take his place. But Kate has enough going on in her life—like a skyrocketing film career, a delusional ex-boyfriend, and a crazed stalker who will stop at nothing to get to her. But the powers that be have decided, and Kate is transported to Shadow Wood, a mysterious castle that serves as a sanctuary for the supernatural. Although beautiful, Shadow Wood is no safe place for a mere mortal. Yet Kate is drawn not only to the gargoyles but also to Ian McGuire, a charming novelist who might be in the greatest danger of all.
As Kate decides whether to accept the most perilous role of her life, she discovers there are more secrets than answers within the castle’s walls. Her survival and Ian’s depend on her ability to master the gargoyles before time runs out. Is fate really cast in stone?
Michelle Muto lives in northeast Georgia. She loves changes of season, dogs, and all things geeky. Currently, she’s hard at work on her next book.
Her other novels include: The Book of Lost Souls, Don’t Fear the Reaper, The Haunting Season, and the upcoming short story collection Nature’s Fifth Season.
