Myth and mystery -- Very highly recommended,
This review is from: Gryphon's Quest (Paperback)
When a protection spells goes wrong at birth, Gryphon O'Connor spends his life as an outcast. The only one of his kind, he uncontrollably alternates between a human form and that of a gryphon until Shaula Gallagher, Sorceress of the Ancients, lends her aid. In return for his service, she helps Gryphon control his transformations. Though he tires of being used, Gryphon accepts another task; this one could mean the salvation of his Order as well as those on the Outside. He must retrieve rune stones with unspeakable power before their use can be discovered and horror unleashed on Earth.
Acquisition assistant Heather Green loves antiquities, and especially Irish artifacts. Studying the artifacts of her heritage is like stepping into "another world of magic, myth, and mystery." But she never expects to confront myth in person, especially in such a sexy babe magnet as Gryphon. She initially does not believe his story of the runes, but when someone is murdered at the museum, she has no one else to believe. But if Gryphon reveals the truth of his identity, he brings certain death to Heather.
The first of the series TALES OF THE ORDER, GRYPHON'S QUEST will delight paranormal romance lovers. Candace Sams creates a world of myth and mystery that lies concealed within our own mundane existence, unsuspected and carefully guarded. Heather is a woman of remarkable strength concealed beneath a deceptively mundane exterior. Gryhon is a man isolated and alone, even among his own people. Together they create a powerful presence and love draws them close but ancient law forbids their being together. Indeed, even knowledge of Gryphon's true form threatens Heather's existence. A strong plot revolving around the missing runes gives the novel a fast paced story readers will not be able to put down. Destined for the keeper shelf, GRYPHON'S QUEST comes very highly recommended.
