From Christine Warren’s newest book, HEART OF STONE (though she “stole” the title to Roman’s book) about a gargoyle guardian and the human female he falls in love with.
The hour-and-some minutes’ drive back to Vancouver convinced Ella of two things: one, in spite of his human size and shape, Kees could still do a pretty damned fine impression of a mute, motionless statue; and two, curiosity probably hadn’t actually killed the cat, just driven it to suicide. Ella certain intended to kill something if she didn’t get answers to at least a few of her questions pretty damned quick.
A couple of notes here. Kees rhymes with “peace” and he was in human guise because his bad ol’ gargoyle self wouldn’t fit in the SUV. 😉 This is a new series for Ms. Warren. So far, its okay. I like Ella, the heroine. She’s snarky.
A favorite line from the Princess Bride that came up in a different context:
I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it’s over, I do not know what to do with the rest of my life. ~Inigo Montoya
Tell me there’s not a story there!?! Which is why I wrote it down. Inspiration for “some day.” 😀
And finally, one from me that will go in a future book but I’m not telling which one. *bwahaha*
This was a dark and silent mourning. The pale faces around him stayed closed, locked up tight. Emotion had no place here.
So what are y’all reading today? Any good words to share?
