More About the Author

As far back as I can remember, I've had a love affair with books. I loved to live vicariously through each character, and dreamed of the day when I'd write my own books. I loved to write and make up stories, a talent which was both loved and hated by many of my English teachers. As I got older, I had teachers encourage me to write, but they admonished me to 'stop writing the weird stuff and tone down the sarcasm!' But what fun is that?

However, my other love was music, and playing clarinet and saxophone ended up paying my way through college by way of a scholarship. As is often the case, life happened and I didn't get back to writing until 2003, when my husband and son encouraged me to 'stop talking about it, and go do it!' So, I joined my local Romance Writers of America chapter and poured myself into learning everything I could about writing and publishing, and both the business and creative side of being a writer.

I worked hard, and in ten months wrote INTO A DANGEROUS MIND, and set about the business of submitting and entering contests while I moved on to writing STONE MAIDEN. I entered dozens of contests and rewrote and revised that book several dozen times. I also received tons of great rejections from both agents and editors. Yes - you read right - GREAT rejections. Most of them saying, "we really liked your story, but it has the following weaknesses..." With every one, I refined and rewrote and learned everything I could. Then in October 2004, I received the fateful 'call.' Okay, it was an email, but thus began one of the best chapters in my life. Since then, I've hit the ground running and never looked back. I also write under the pen name Cassie Ryan.

I currently live in sunny Arizona with my two favorite men-my husband and my son-and our two cats.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Prophecy is a fickle thing. Kefira Knight and her three Gargoyle sisters had hoped they were done with prophecy after Ariel's pregnancy with the son of the blood (see STONE MAIDEN). But it seems that Kefira is to play a part in the prophecy as well....

Kefira's sharp temper ignites when her former lover, Paladin Dagan Grayson, shows up on the doorstep of the ranch she and her sisters are sharing with Ariel's new husband. Kefira still bears deep emotional scars from the loss of their child when she turned to stone for healing. Meanwhile, Jeslyn, Queen of the Succubus clan, has a nefarious plot afoot to halt the rise of Good. Kefira must choose a path- will she choose Good or Evil?

Tina Gerow's Gargoyle series is amazing! Once warriors for God (who is female), the Gargoyles have been released from their duties. Their choices, however, still affect humans via prophecy. The intricate details of the prophecy are cleverly interwoven into the plotline with a mixture of romance, supernatural creatures, and intrigue. While FIRE MAIDEN can be read as a stand alone novel, the background information on Kefira in STONE MAIDEN greatly enhances the emotional impact of the storyline surrounding her accidental abortion of her baby many years ago. These emotions play a pivotal role in FIRE MAIDEN and so reading STONE MAIDEN is helpful, although not required for a complete understanding of Kefira's plight.

Kefira's temperament only makes her more endearing to this reviewer. Kefira is quick to anger but her love for those close to her runs deep. Her loyalty and love are thoroughly tested in FIRE MAIDEN.

This book had an interesting premise and was entertaining. Four gargoyles (which are all females) have been the servants of God (female) for eternity. Although God has released them from service and made them mortal, they still have some of their powers and a place in prophecy.

In the end, some things - like God as a woman - got rather tiresome. And one of my major annoyances with publishers/editors has been typos and logic problems that should have been corrected before publishing. This book had problems with both. As an example, one of the women (former gorgoyle) is shot with 24 arrows which pin her to a cow. Anyone want to figure out how someone can have 24 arrows sticking out of their body - not much space - especially since none seemed to hit extremties or her face. And how close would one have to be standing to a cow in order for arrows to pass through the body and deep enough into the cow so that the person is 'pinned' to a cow. A holstein cow in an area where cattle are most likely to be beef cattle. A holstein cow (female) which is referred to as 'him'.

If the author can find an editor who does his/her job, the obvious and annoying problems could be 'cleaned up' in future books. This book is a fun read, if you can get past the annoyances, but be aware that those annoyances ARE there. My rating would be '0' stars for the editor/publisher and 3 stars for an interesting premise that just didn't seem to be fully worked out yet.

Tina Gerow has taken the term steamy to a new level. She has crafted a wonderful tale and did I mention that this woman knows how to write a sex scene? Don't take my word for it. Read this wonderful book and judge for yourself.
