About the Author
Mary Calmes lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband and two children and loves all the seasons except summer. She graduated from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, with a bachelor's degree in English literature. Due to the fact that it is English lit and not English grammar, do not ask her to point out a clause for you, as it will so not happen. She loves writing, becoming immersed in the process, and falling into the work. She can even tell you what her characters smell like. She loves buying books and going to conventions to meet her fans.

 Stopping to offer help one sultry summer night, Mason James is unprepared for the change that this simple act of kindness will bring. After giving an old man a ride home, Mason discovers a new, magical, and even dangerous world he cannot hope to understand. But he also finds Luc Toussaint and is intoxicated at first sight... and even the secret Luc protects won’t be enough to keep Mason away from the truth of his heritage and their love.

 Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted the AUDIO file of this book.

Mason discovers a naked old man wandering the roads and takes him home. MAson then finds himself in the middle of the stuff of nightmares.

SHORT!!! SO FREAKING SHORT!!

This is an audio review, and I find I cannot split the book from the narration if the book is in first person. So it'll all run into one bit puddle :-)

Greg Tremblay narrates. The man is AWESOME!! I thought, worried, actually, I might get shades of Cole McGinnis (The Dirty Series, by Rhys Ford) bleeding through, since I'm listening to this on the back of those, but I need not have worried. Tremblay is a MASTER at his craft and his work shines. 

I loved Mason, ans his brief history we get here. I loved his reaction to the group of people he meets taking the old man home. And I loved his reaction to Luc and what Luc tells him. He is Romanus, long fabled about in Luc's and now Mason's people, but few are found.

Luc is a Gargoyle and I love Gargoyle stories, we get so few of them! Luc's voice here is only when he speaks though, and Tremblay nails that one, I tell ya! But because he doesn't get a say, for that Ms Calmes, I am not happy. Short as it is, had Luc had a say, I have no doubt that this would be a five star across the board. 

BUT! I have discovered, since finishing, that there is a second book about Mason and Luc and I wish to listen to it too. However, its not out in audio yet, so I'm gonna have to wait! I don't liked to mix and match between reading and listening in the same series.

so, ONLY because its single POV and we don't get Luc,

4.5 stars for the book

but

5 stars for the narration

**same worded review will appear on: Goodreads, Audible.com, Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, BookLikes and Dreamspinner Press**
