Acon has accepted the task of securing a grotesque monster and delivering her to his brothers. Because of his Mountain God status, Acon wasn’t expecting to be affected by the gorgon. After laying eyes on his beautiful opponent, the only thing Acon wanted to secure was a place in her bed.

What Kyma wants most is the one thing she has never experienced firsthand - love. Loneliness and regret are the only emotions this daughter of Medusa feels until a mysterious giant offers her pleasure.

Things get interesting when the hunter realizes he’s at the mercy of the hunted. Kyma flips the entire situation on Acon and this causes a misunderstanding with Acon and his brothers. Obstacles crop up for the couple but fortunately, they are no match for fate. As cliché as it sounds, Acon is a perfect match for Kyma. He sees the beauty in her that few others see. Forever is a long time when you’re immortal and even longer when you’re facing it alone, as Kyma was. There was a moment or two when Cynthia Sax made me feel Kyma’s pain as it oozed from the pages. Gargoyle: Hard as Stone is a passionate read that puts life into perspective by breaking it down to the simplest form. At the end of the day, love is all that matters.
