really liked it

Mercy, A Gargoyle Story by Misty Provencher is a New-Adult Urban Fantasy, heavier on the fantasy side. This is the story of Madeline, fairly forgotten by her family, sought love where none was to be found. Kicked out of her home and dumped by her boyfriend, Madeline leaves this world only to be resurrected as a gargoyle. A lonely and confused gargoyle. Still among those she left behind, but unacknowledged, Madeline sees the world in a new light and tries to right some of the wrongs as she can. To complicate matters, she must fend advances by a bevy of gargoyles seeking her hand and her best friend can only talk in the rain.

This was an interesting, albeit unusual, read. It started fairly slow but there was a lot of world building that went into the beginning to shape the story. Ms. Provencher has an appealingly poetic writing style, one of my favorite passages was "All I want is to rip him to pieces. Like a love letter that never meant a thing." Just a perfect line. I look forward to reading more of her books.
