really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, romance, paranormal

I actually would have given this less than a 4 but 3 1/2 was too less. This is more like a 3.80 for me.

I'll admit, the fact that the heroine can talk to stone statues, while unique, didn't really pique my interest originally. However, I'm glad I read this book.

I think the fantasy/paranormal aspect was rather refreshing in a world full of were/vampire paranormals that have become so boring to me.

There were several things I enjoyed about this story, one being the almost quiet way in which Delia and Grant relate and fall in love. While for some it might be somewhat muted, for me I liked it. It had a ring of truth to it in how two mature people come together.

What I didn't get so much was why Delia kept insisting that Grant wouldn't want her, when he clearly did. But I guess there needs to be some tension in the romantic build-up. Her fear that Grant would think her crazy for her ability seemed reasonable, but maybe carried too far?

I also totally loved Cecily, kind of witch and distant cousin of Delia who was pure evil. She was written 3 dimensionally and clearly had some issues, which I found a bit more intriguing than the Delia/Grant story.

I knew that Delia and Grant would end up together, it's a romance, however, what kept me turning the pages was that I was very curious about what made Cecily tick and what her story was.

I think this is a good debut book for Keri Stevens. I'll definitely be looking forward to some more books from her.
