Review: Christine Warren has a way with words that leaves the reader laughing and wondering how in the hell she came up with great dialogue and one-liners that are creative and perfect. Book 3 in the Gargoyles series lives up to the first two in story, emotion, humor, and passion. This one follows Wynn and the brand new Guardian Knox as they hunt for her missing brother and the link between the Nocturnis and Chicago. Their adventure is fun and fast and the ending is emotional and sweet. What Knox does at the very end to comfort Wynn was perfect. Overall, an enjoyable read and loved the one-liners!
