Review: Knights of Stone (Highland Gargoyles #1) by Lisa Carlisle

Gargoyles, tree witches, and wolf shifters have divided the Isle of Stone after a great battle twenty-five years ago. When Kayla, a tree witch, hears about the unconventional rock concerts in the gargoyle’s territory, she sneaks from her coven and into their territory to see for herself. Night after night, she returns to see one in particular shift into human form and play guitar at these unconventional shows.

For several nights, Mason has kept watch for the pixie-like female. He plans to seduce her, thinking she’s a visitor from another island. When he discovers she’s one of the tree witches, he retreats, attempting to keep his distance. The temptation is strong, but forbidden.

Kayla and Mason attempt to meet in secret, but other elements on the isle command their attention. A magical cloak created by the three clans on the island is thinning, leading to repercussions for all the clans. Kayla and Mason are caught in the middle of it, and their actions may change the fate for all.

This novella was originally releases as part of the Highland Shifters paranormal romance boxed set.

Witches, shifters and gargoyles, oh my! With a little drama, good characters and lots of heat, Knights of Stone is a great start to what looks to be a promising series.

I liked Mason, really I did. However, this isn’t my first gargoyle story and I (unfortunately) have a preconceived opinion of what I expect in a gargoyle character. He’s got to be sexy, check. He has to follow the gargoyle legend of stone by day, flesh by night – check there as well. Protector, big check. Now here is my gripe. I get this ‘innocent’ impression from him. Yes I get he lives on a island. However, for someone who is suppose to be a protector that has lived a long time, I expect him to be a bit more ‘worldly’ (for lack of a better term). Now Kayla, as sheltered as she is, I expected to be innocent. No disappointments there. I found her character to be very sweet. Although, not to sweet if she’s sneaking off to go check check out rock concerts. Now that was a play on words – gargoyles playing rock concerts. *Snickers* Setting my giggles aside, I found this story to be very sweet and sexy. The whole ‘everybody needs to work together’ story is always a winner. Knowing this is going to be a series, I imagine Mason’s brother will be getting themselves each a story. I hope some of them involves the wolf shifters.

I know this story was originally a part of a Highland Shifters paranormal romance boxed set. I’ve only had the pleasure of reading a couple of books in the set and, having read Ms. Carlisle’s work before, was excited to see she was taking her entry and making a series out of it. Looking forward to the next book. A definite read for anyone who enjoys their PNR characters out of the norm.
