An old friend of the family....
Alexandra Belarus is a struggling artist living in New York City, even though her family is rich in real estate, including a towering Gothic Gramercy Park building built by her great-great-grandfather. But the truth of her bloodline is revealed when she is attacked on the street and saved by an inhumanly powerful winged figure. A figure who knows the Belarus name....
Lexi’s great-great-grandfather was a Spellmason - an artisan who could work magic on stone. But in his day, dark forces conspired against him and his, so he left a spell of protection on his family. Now that Lexi is in danger, the spell has awoken her ancestor’s most trusted and fearsome creation: a gargoyle named Stanis.
Lexi and Stanis are equally surprised to find themselves bound to each other. But as they learn to work together, they realize that only united can they save the city they both love....

OK if you are looking for a YA fantasy

The concept is intriguing, but the approach is more geared toward a "Twilight" audience, even though the protagonists are in their early 20's. Also, the narrator, Borg, sounded a bit young (teens) and didn't present a good range for the adults (well, older generations, as I can't think of Alexandra and her 2 friend as adults, even though they are in their 20's, given their puerile behavior). Borg's delivery is grating on some of the male voices and she is particularly off target for the centuries old gargoyle, Stanis. This would be a fun read for a teen audience or anyone looking for a fresh YA fantasy. If you are looking for grit, I would look elsewhere.

Not sure how I feel about this book

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The story line could be very good, but I kept feeling like it was geared more towards teenage group. Too may childish behaviors and spats with the primary characters

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The scifi part. I enjoy the unusual.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

She read good... I just felt like the story line was too young.

Any additional comments?

I hate to say anything bad, it was a decent read, just felt young, and I didnt expect that.
