Sorceress Found: A Gargoyle and Sorceress Prequel Story by Lisa Blackwood is a touching story about love & protection. I gave it five stars.
It's also about magic. A gargoyle escapes Death Hounds with the young sorceress & crosses through the veil where he rescues a young boy & asks for help before he turns back into stone to heal. He begs the woman to guide her in the right ways & knows her memory will be erased after crossing through the veil into the Mortal Realm, the land where there is no magic.
There is a sample chapter included of Sorceress Awakening, book one of the Gargoyle & Sorceress Tales. It is intriguing. "The gargoyle was one of her first childhood memories. At the age of eight, after a near-drowning accident stole her memories, she'd been drawn to the stone statue as if he was pivotal to her survival. She always assumed her strange need to be near him was a result of her childhood trauma."
I received a complimentary e-copy from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review.
