Secret of the Gargoyles by Rebecca Chastain
(Gargoyle Guardian Chronicles #3) 

Secret of the Gargoyles (Gargoyle Guardian Chronicles, #3)It is a gargoyle healer’s worst nightmare. Gargoyles are contracting a strange sickness and they are slowly dying, comatose and unable to help either themselves or Mika. Terra Haven is becoming a deadly place for gargoyles and only Mika may be able to find the cure, but they are a secretive lot, they share little about their culture, their history or their customs and needs.

When all else has failed, Mika must learn their secrets and prove she is strong enough to face the wild magic that surrounds their most sacred grounds. She cannot do it alone, but the only one with the powerful magic she needs is the one man she must stay very far away from or risk losing her heart forever.

Secret of the Gargoyles by Rebecca Chastain is the third addition to this trilogy and you know what that means….when you reach that final page, after being lost in the magical world of these amazing gargoyles, you must say goodbye. Not to worry, this final hoorah is one action-packed, secret-filled high danger read that will set a new high bar for Ms. Chastain’s creative writing! From fiercely loyal and ferocious gargoyles to deathly ill gargoyles, wasting away and helpless, Mika is facing her greatest challenge, but at what cost? Will she receive the help she seeks when that crucial moment arrives with wild magic buffeting her from all sides?

Mika is her usual kind and witty self, not too self-assured, but much stronger than she realizes as Ms. Chastain breathes her own magic in to the life of each character. What a plot! What a wild trip! What a great mission that Mika will risk it all so it doesn't fail! What do you think, will Mika find more than respect on this journey? Will there be a powerful mage in her future? Which leads me to another question…must we really say goodbye just when gargoyles were getting some much deserved print time?

I received an ARC edition from Rebecca Chastain in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Thank you for the fabulous review, Dii! Honestly, I'm not ready to say goodbye to the gargoyles, either...which is why there's a novelette in the works. :)
