Gargoyles do not admire difference--and Levet is undeniably different. Of miniscule stature, rather beastly looks, and with fragile, delicate wings, even his family has shunned him, banished him from his beloved Paris. That he is the only gargoyle ever to help defeat the Dark Lord and his hordes of minions makes no impression. But now Levet has come home, determined to be restored to the official Gargoyle Guild. To do so, he must confront the most feared gargoyle in all of Europe. The one who tried to kill him as a child: his own mother. . .
With few allies, Levet's survival may depend on the aid of two strangers: Valla, a beautiful but damaged nymph, and Elijah, the fiercely possessive, love-struck vampire clan chief to whom she can't quite surrender--unless Levet has something to do with it.

I’m just so happy for Levet right now. I have to admit the first couple of Guardians of Eternity books he popped up in he annoyed me. The more I read him the more I warmed up to him. Now I look forward to his page time in the books. He gets his very own sort of happily ever after finally. He deserves it with all the match making he does. His heroism and perseverance in the face of dangerous foes much more powerful and larger than him has finally paved the way to something he has desperately wanted for years.
Going into this story I knew Levet would not be getting a romantic happily ever after. I know from speaking with the author she has no plans of venturing into gargoyle romance. I was assuming that we’d get a fun Levet read, which is exactly what readers are given on that front. Readers are also given a tiny romance side story where Levet gets to do his usual match making that he is so successful at. I could have done without Valla and Elijah. The length of this novella did not have room for the two story lines.
I did enjoy reading the tiny bit of Valla and Elijah that we were given. I would have been more than happy to read and enjoy a novella or a full length novel devoted to them, but there was just too little in this “tie me over until the next amazing Guardians of Eternity” read.
