A group of friends get ready for what they think is going to be a party of a life time, little do they know that all of their lives are going to change, will it be for better or worse?

Evie is different then the rest of her friends, she likes to draw and dresses in a different manner than the rest, she also has a job, when all the rest of her friends are rich. Moriah is pretty much the girl of every guy's dreams or so most other girls think, however, she only wants one guy and she's finally snagged him away from Heather. Kingston feels he's falling in love with Moriah but doesn't know how she feels about him and is too afraid to say anything... However, all this stuff seems increasingly petty as their party continues on. Strange beings appear out of nowhere and before Evie or anyone knows it, most of the people at the party are gone and they have no idea what has happened to them.

This novel was okay, I didn't love it for a lot of reasons. First was the fact that it went from different characters too quickly. One second you are reading and you're inside Evie's head and then all of sudden you're inside Adriane's head, for that reason alone the book was kind of confusing and rather annoying. I didn't feel that that was a good way of writing, when you are switching characters so quickly. I mean there's a right way and a wrong way to do that and Beaumont, in my opinion did it the wrong way. This novel would of had so much more potenial if it wasn't for that. The ending wasn't great either.

I don't want to keep going on about what I found wrong with the novel. So I'll end it here. It's different and I did like that about it, not too many stories out there about gargoyles.

Gargoyle by Lorraine Beaumont was a quick easy read and I finished it in one day.

I liked the characters, yes, even Colton, although he was annoying and immature.

I chuckled at some of the conversations between Evie and Moriah because I could visualize people I know saying similar things.

I really wanted to know more about Adriane, Alistair, and Simon. Why were they turned into Gargoyles so many years ago? What are Gargoyles? What are these other creatures that have come to Briar Cliff Manor and why have they come now?

While I enjoyed reading this book I was left with too many unanswered questions and the ending....What??

5.0 out of 5 stars Gargoyles and Other Creatures of the Night Jan. 25 2013
By Scott R. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
When I read Ms. Beaumont's first book in this series (Elyograg), I was confused. It had a strange timeline, and felt very dreamlike. I thought I liked it, wasn't sure, but found myself drawn in. When the second book in the series (Gargoyle) I realized that I was hooked. So when this book came out, I was confused. Was there new material that I might have missed? Then I won a copy in a giveaway from the author and jumped in.

There is new material.

The plot has changed. For the better.

I am now transfixed with this series. The writing is beautiful. It's brilliant. It slowly sucks you in until you couldn't get out even if you wanted to. The world that author creates is fascinating. Those statues on the tops of buildings or pillars you might pass everyday...what if they are more than statues? Much more.

I recommend that people who have read the first two books pick this one up and check for the differences. And if you haven't read the first two, I highly suggest that you get this book. If you enjoy paranormal that edges towards the darkside, then you will love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read Oct. 16 2015

I really enjoyed this book. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I despise books that end in the middle of a scene. I believe a truly great book should conclude the current situation. I as a reader want to buy the next book because I want to know what else happens in the characters lives, not because I want to know how the first story plays out. Evie is a very likeable character and quite relatable. The character build is wonderfully written with just enough detail. I just honestly believe a book should have a solid beginning, climax and ending. This book has a solid beginning and climax buildup with a to be continued that makes it an incomplete story. Lorraine Beaumont is a phenomenal writer.

The Gathering Series
By Lorraine Beaumont
As soon as I started this work, I felt the author had a deep affinity for the Gargoyle. In her descriptions there was a fascination with their power and linage. What struck me though Ms. Beaumont's writing style which is like dining at a good restaurant. She has the ability to create suspense while at the same time creating a sense of desire for the characters. There are characters so well described that you are there in their midst and while some you will hate, or be annoyed with, others you will be loved.
A portion I was given to read begins in an old mysterious house on top of a mountain that have Gargoyles on the roof and entrance. There are described good and bad Gargoyles each with their own purpose. There is an interplay between the Gargoyles and humans with historical overtones. Again, I have to give credit to the author for creating a believable scene on this mountain. In my mind's eye I could see them and the action which followed.
I will not view Gargoyles the same again and any I see in front of homes I will wonder what they are thinking and feeling. Good job and a good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gargoyle: The Gathering Series Aug. 15 2013
By Denise Z - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a different read for me. The story was told from multiple points of view and at times I found it a bit distracting having to switch gears and determine where we were at any given time. I did like the characters, although I did want to smack Evie for putting up with some of the nonsense and not speaking up for herself, and as the story progressed the character building was very helpful. I liked the supernatural element, which is unique and I always enjoy finding something a little different. I do wish there was a little more world building around the supernatural characters, or perhaps more back-story, which I think would have been a great bit of glue to smooth out the edges. At times the book felt a bit draggy taking, in my opinion, a bit too long to get from point A to point B, but I believe this was all part of the world building and perhaps it is just my perception from the multiple POVs. The saving grace for me with this read was the ending and I really cannot believe I am saying this because it is a bit of a cliffhanger, which I normally do not care much for. However, there is a brief preview of the next installment that grabbed me and makes me believe there is more to come with the possibility of something awesome coming. While I am not sure how much I really liked this book overall, I do see it as an introduction to a new world with a series that I believe has great potential and I would definitely like to see what happens next. I received an ARC, but it is my understanding there is an interactive element to the story that is provided in the purchased copy of the book, which sounds like it might be quite fun to follow. I requested this book for read and review from the author and received it with a request for my honest review without any compensation whatsoever, other than the joy of reading a new book

4.0 out of 5 stars This is why I love New Adult PNR! Can't wait for more from Beaumont! Aug. 15 2013
By Diana (@Offbeat Vagabond) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was quite a different read for me. I really enjoyed this book. Beaumont definitely has quite an interesting read here. Gargoyle is one of those books that slowly sucks you in page by page. The characters are quite intriguing and slowly grow on you. Our main character Evie was a fun, but shy girl. I loved her spunk. She had me cracking up sometimes. I liked her best friend Moriah as well. She wasn't all that great a best friend given the surprise she had for Evie. But you can tell she cared for her and really thought of her as a best friend. I wish we got to see more of that actually.

I love the world Beaumont has created. I love the idea of the gargoyles coming to life. I loved our main one Adriane. I loved his instant connection to Evie even though she kind of freaked her out at first. He was so freaking hot, I have got to say. I can't wait to see more between them. They were great together. I also enjoyed his friends/gargoyles; Simon and Alistair. I loved both of these characters. I am very curious about where these characters will go. Simon is great, but he does seem like he can be a troublemaker, but he isn't a jerk. Alistair seems like he is getting more and more powerful. Adriane is the leader, but there could be a powerplay between him and Alistair. I can't wait to see what more is to come.

This is more of a character driven story, well for the majority of it anyway. We don't know what is going on until the halfway point. The build does reel you in. It is a slow build up, but in a good way. The characters are out at this exclusive party at a mansion surrounded by gargoyles. But no one doesn't know who exactly chose the spot. I love where the book went. I seriously didn't see that coming. That was an unexpected twist ad I loved it a lot.

This book may not be for everyone. It doesn't focus on the plot as much as some would like. Instead we get a little bit of all the characters and their connections with each other and these gargoyles. I liked it, but I would have wanted more of the story. I am sure we will get it with book 2. Beaumont left us on quite the cliffhanger. I am pretty excited where book 2 will go with this. I recommend this read for those looking for an intriguing and gothic New Adult PNR.
