Sorry, I just had to get that out of my system. It's just, it's so out of the norm, you know? Demons, vampires, werewolves, fairies/faeries,and even goblins-- psht. Been there, done that. I thought I'd sort of seen it all you know?
Here comes a gargolye.
Anyway, in regards to the story, I thought it was a very sweet and short little novella. Very good to pass time when you're bored/lonely/grieving between angst-filled books.
I think, one of the main reasons this didn't get a four or five stars was because of the whole gargoyle shmazzle. I have nothing against gargolyes, it's just that sometimes I couldn't help but cringe
at some of things I read. It's not that there was some intense or extremely cringe-worthy scenes, it's just that when I tried to imagine
a gargoyle doing some of that shit I sort went all Woah woah. Back off a bit lad. I need to process some shit
. I mean seriously, imagine a gargoyle (but turned to life, and fleshy with all blood and shit), masturbating
. Can you? I can't. And when I tried it was like, again, Woah woah. Back off a bit lad. I need to process some shit.
Which also brings me to another point. I could not imagine what Rodney looked like. It's not that Sarah Madison didn't provide sufficient description or anything. I just-- I just couldn't imagine him like being intimate
with David. I felt so. . . weird and a bit uncomfortable reading it.
But aside from that I thought it was such a cute story, and I definitely wouldn't deter you from reading it if it caught your eye. It was a nice in-between story.
