Dare

Dare
Author: Taylor Longford
Publisher: Taylor Longford
Series: Greystone Novels #2
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Supernatural

Think you know about gargoyles? The beautiful winged race disappeared eight hundred years ago. When they last walked the earth, they traveled in close-knit packs, their throats marked with ancient runes. Their greatest enemies were the ugly and brutal harpies that people today mistake for gargoyles.


The victim of a harpy attack at seventeen, Dare lost his wings along with his poisonous barbs. When he meets Mim, he doesn’t consider himself much of a catch. But Mim is the only power that can make the broken gargoyle whole again. And when she’s abducted by a harpy, he’s willing to sacrifice himself for her freedom.
Which might have worked, if Mim hadn’t been willing to do the same thing. {goodreads.com}


Review

I cannot praise The Greystone Novels enough. Taylor Longford is honestly one of the most talented new and upcoming authors that I have ever had the pleasure of reading.

I was first introduced to the idea of Gargoyles through Valor, the first book within the Greystone Novels, and it was love at first sight!

It had great character, plot and thematic development.

Dare…what can I possibly say about this book? Well it had me eagerly turning pages (and hoping that my burned out Nook Color could hold out till the last page, which it did). This addition is perfect with it’s balance of mystery (where is Reason/where are the harpies/will Mim love Dare?), love (Mim & Dare), and paranormal goodness (hello? Gargoyles!).

Dare was the main character. And, it was a complete 360 from Mack’s POV. Dare has a chip on his shoulder that has tainted his view of the World and himself. He does not see his value to his pack or to another person.Essentially, this novel tells the story of Dare and how he overcomes his crippling view of himself, and wins the love of his life.

I could not recommend this book any more, just go out and buy it!!
