Of Shadow and Stone by Michelle Muto

Rating: 2.5 stars

Kate was an actress with a great career. Her personal life was falling apart because of issues with an ex-boyfriend. Weird things began happening to her. She kept having bizarre dreams that seemed real, and a strange connection with gargoyles was developed.

The world building was lacking. The gist of it was explained but no details were given. There was so much more I wanted to know. It would have been preferable if more time had been spent on world building and less time had been spent on Kate’s romantic issues.

Kate and Ian were rather suddenly introduced to the paranormal world. It didn’t have much of an impact on them. They should have been more shocked or terrified or worried about what was being asked of them. They were too accepting of it all.

Too many men were into Kate. One was an obsessed stalker. The other was her ex-boyfriend who was somewhat obsessive, and the other was a new guy she met to whom she felt an instant attraction although they knew nothing about each other. All of this took up a large portion of the story, and frankly I didn’t care about any of it.

I did appreciate that Kate was a strong character. She dealt with a slew of deranged men but didn’t rely on a man to save her. She was perfectly content with protecting herself.

I received a copy of this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
