My submission:

Stone Guardian
by Danielle Monsch
Series: Entwined Realms #1
Narrator: Tavia Gilbert
Published: Tantor Media
Gryphons flying past skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago. 
Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species, nor has she wanted to. Her life is as ordinary as it gets—that is, until one day she walks out of her apartment and is attacked by a mob of Zombies, only to be saved by a Gargoyle. 
Gargoyles trust no one outside their Clan, but due to a cryptic prophecy, Terak, Leader of the Gargoyles, has been watching over the human woman for months. While he can find no reason why the woman has been singled out, something about her stirs every protective instinct within him. When the attack confirms that the threats against her exist and are real, he convinces Larissa that though their races have never been allies, the best chance of discovering why she has been brought into his world is by working together. 
In the course of their investigation Terak becomes entranced by his little human. But when he discovers why Necromancers want her and the great reward that awaits him if he betrays her, he must choose between the welfare of his Clan and not only Larissa's life, but the fate of this New Realm as well.
I won this one and I can't wait to get started. Any audios on your tbr?

  15. I have had no luck with Gargoyle stories though I love them! If this is a good one, I want to listen to or read it. I have several things waiting to be listened to, the rest of the Girl of Fire and Thorns series, The 2nd in The Raven Boys series, I am listening to Along for the Ride by Sara Dessen right now. If this is a good Gargoyle book, I wanna listen to it too!
