The Old Races—­gar­goyles, dragons, vampires, and more—are still around, though few ordinary humans are aware of them, since they can all assume human form.

Margrit Knight, a feisty Legal Aid lawyer in New York City, defends Alban, a gargoyle falsely accused of murdering women in Central Park. She finds herself drawn into murky struggles between different factions and she becomes in­creas­ing­ly attracted to the statuesque Alban, who has long been in self-imposed exile.

Gargoyles are a novel twist in the in­creas­ing­ly popular urban fantasy genre. En­ter­tain­ing and fast-paced.
