Summary from Goodreads:
Beau Bailey is suffering from a post-break-up meltdown when she
happens across a knife in her local park and takes it home. Less than a week later, the new boy in school has her trapped in an alley; he’s sprouted horns and is going to kill Beau unless she hands over the knife.
Until Eighteenth-century gargoyle, Jack, shows up to save her.
Jack has woken from a century-long slumber to tell Beau that she’s unwittingly been drafted into a power struggle between two
immortal races: Demons and Gargoyles. The knife is the only one in existence capable of killing immortals and they’ll tear the world apart to get it back. To draw the warring immortals away from her home, Beau goes with Jack in search of the mind-bending realm known as the Underworld, a place where they’ll hopefully be able to destroy the knife and prevent all hell from breaking loose. That is, provided they can outrun the demons chasing them.
What I Thought…
In Stone by Louise Gornall made me laugh within the first three lines, and had set the hook when protagonist Beau Bailey has a mysterious encounter with a stranger in the park who ends up disintegrating into dust! I loved the fresh faced and inventive storyline involving Gargoyles and Demons. The action of the book is fast paced and keeps the reader voraciously chewing away! I was sad to have this literary meal end so soon! The banter between Beau and Jack is witty and clever, and the chemistry made me want to don a lab apron while I sat back and enjoyed the show! This was my first experience with a NA book, and In Stone did not disappoint.
4 out of 5 stars!
