There are still comatose gargoyles throughout Terra Haven and even after three months of searching for answers, Mika is not any closer to saving the poor creatures. One of the gargoyles is the marmot she helped save from a null in book 2. After several weeks of being spied on by Celeste, a gargoyle from book 1, Magic of the Gargoyles, she finally approaches Mika with the Secret of the Gargoyles.
The fate of the comatose gargoyles has now been tenderly placed in Mika's hands. Knowing how to save them is only the first step. The next step is finding the location of the cure since it is veiled in magic for protection of all gargoyles. This requires trekking into an area that no human can survive and battling with the forces of wild magic that have claimed the land. Asking the Federal Pentagon Defense squad (FPD) is the next logical step in Mika's plan, only most of them are unavailable. She does manage to snag Marcus Velasquez, the guy she has a crush on, to go with her, Celeste, and Oliver, although he's not happy. This mission is wrought with danger and he can't sit idly by and let her go alone.
Terra Haven, the location of the Gargoyle Guardian Chronicles, is pretty ambiguous; it could be anywhere. This allows the reader to take the well-written descriptions and build their own version of the world Rebecca Chastain has created. Mika is a compassionate soul and we continually learn more about the depth of her compassion. We also see a part of her in book 3 that is quite different from the Mika of books 1 and 2. She learns the power and strength behind her gargoyle guardian abilities and what giving into them could mean. Is she strong enough to resist or not as she's pushed into a position that will make or break her? Marcus is such a patient and kind guy and I love his interactions with Mika. There is chemistry galore between them and love the subtle dynamics between them. Mika, however, has been so focused on the comatose gargoyles that she allowed herself to pull away from him and others.
Secret of the Gargoyles is a fantastic book. The plot of the story, the entire series actually, is unique and exciting. The story line packs such a punch that you can't help but be drawn into and fully engaged in the story. The emotional content in regards to the plight of the trapped gargoyles and Mika's passion to save them was realistic and Mika's emotions transfer to the reader.
This is a fun urban fantasy book that is fast paced and full of action and crackling with tension and uncertainty. The author did a wonderful job continuing the character and world development in Secret of the Gargoyles. I enjoyed the book and the series very much and hope to see the author write in this world a lot more. There are so many stories that still need to be told about Mika, Marcus, and Oliver.
This book is a verified Amazon purchase.
Seven gargoyles that are suffering from a mysterious wasting malady. The gargoyles need her to fix the 'thing' but it's all '...not to be shared with humans' stuff. The 'thing' is located in the Waupecony Ridge. The Feds have restricted access to the Waupecony Ridge for decades due to the lethal elemental storms that rage in the area.
In order to get to the 'thing' deep in the Waupecony Ridge alive, Mika needs the help of Marcus Velasquez. The way out of her league full spectrum fire elemental warrior. Considering her mammoth crush, working with him is going to be ....difficult. But lives and future generation are on the line so once again Mika has to suck it up and put on her big girl panties.
Book 3 is the best of them all! We learn where gargoyles come from and how they fit into this magical world. Mika has her biggest challenge yet and there is romance! Marcus helps Mika on this journey and it’s a good thing he did.
The ending is sweet and Oliver, Mika and Marcus walk away whole. But the series was so good and such a fun world that there needs to be more!
