Book Review: The Gryphon & His Thief
Some Treasures are Priceless…
A long time ago, a Gryphon shifter’s duty was to guard and protect the people of the tribes, but Darrien Andros failed to keep his human wife safe from harm. Cursed for the crime, he must guard everything in the Museum of Cursed Antiquities forever, never to truly live and never to die. Centuries have passed, but when he encounters a thief, who uncannily resembles his dead wife, he is convinced he has a second chance.
Calli Angelis is hired to steal Hecate's Stone from the Museum, believing she would be returning it to its rightful owner. She never really trusted the person who hired her and now Darrien makes her doubt her motives, too. He also has her questioning the possibility of reincarnation when the attraction between them ignites into something she can no longer ignore.
As the two work together to unravel the mysteries behind the stone, it becomes apparent an old and dangerous enemy from Darrien’s past is determined to have history repeat itself.
I enjoyed reading this book. The author is very talented with descriptions that really put me in the scene. Her work flowed smoothly and logically. I also thought she got the pacing right.
Her characters are interesting as well. One is a thief who specializes in returning stolen objects, and the other is a gryphon. I really disliked the bad guy in the book, which of course I was meant to. Great characterization there.
The chemistry between the hero/heroine was well-done and obvious, but the book wasn't graphic. The author let us use our imagination. As well, she let the characters get to know one another (There's something here I'd love to tell you, but I won't.) in their own good time.
If you enjoy paranormal romance, you should put it on your list. It was a nice read.
