The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson
This is an astounding book.
I wouldn’t have bought this book, it was bought for me, and I’m so glad it was. I really need to get out of my comfort zone with books, I tend to go for crime dramas time after time so I love it when someone plonks something new in front of me; especially when the book then turns out to be as good as this one.
There is a scene where one of the main characters is burnt in an accident, it is incredibly descriptive, captivating yet revolting. A terrifying and believable insight into how horrific it must be.
The story seems to weave between fantasy and fiction but in a very engaging way. I can’t even begin to do it justice in this review. I can’t peg it in a genre, I can just say that I loved it.
I loved the madness and passion of the female character, her story on its own was fabulous and a wonderful concept. I yearned to have her drive when I read it.
I made me cry, cringe and keep on reading. Lovely book, very long, a bit odd at times but absolutely steeped in romance.
As ever, I’m not telling you the story; you need to read the book and discover it for yourself 😉
