It has taken many months for Gustav to heal from his time spent with the scientists determined to destroy shape-shifters and other paranormals.  Finally able to be on his own again, Gustav is looking forward to starting his new job and moving into a place of his own.  When he notices an unusual smell on one of his job sites, it’s up to his new pack members to track it down, introducing Gustav to his mate in the process.

As with Catching a Bit of Irish, the author uses Gustav’s Gargoyle Adventure to introduce a new paranormal race into the series.  Unlike the last book however, in this newest addition to the Wolves of Stone Ridge series, the newest member to the paranormal world is also a main character. 

I really liked the main characters in this story. Gustav is big and used to scaring others away because of his size.  This man is a big teddy bear however, and he made me smile more than once when he went on one of his verbal wonderings. Tible, on the other hand, is very intriguing.  The young gargoyle knows little of the shifter world and nothing of his own world.  I was curious how the author planned on incorporating the two worlds since Tible’s physical characteristics make it impossible for him to function in the human world.    

The men’s mating has a few unusual results that throw a twist into the story while wrapping up some questions at the same time.  The story introduces some new characters while bringing back some old ones, all of whom help move the story and series along.   Fans of the series are sure to love this new addition.
