Gargoyle Addiction Book Tour: Review + Giveaway!


Click on the banner for the full schedule.
Welcome to my post for the Gargoyle Addiction book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for an e-copy of Gargoyle Addiction. But, before we get to all that, allow me to introduce the book:

Gargoyle Addiction (Otherworlds Summons, #1)
Release date: July 12,2013
Publisher: Self
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Series: Otherworlds Summons #1

Summonari don’t trust. Under their command, they summon any number of creatures from the Otherwolds—but never trust them outside of the summoning.

Gargoyles don’t love. Fierce descendants of dragons, they function on power and fear—never love.


Karla isn’t the happily-ever-after type of girl. No territory-hungry guy is going to stick flags all over her unclaimed grounds.
Kann’s world is death and betrayal. As Dar Primus of Haus Varis, he’s expected to follow tradition but he’s not your regular gargoyle. In fact, he’s anything but.

One fateful Friday night, Otherworlds collide. Stuck together in one world or another, Karla and Kann face everything from Awakenings and turbulent love to Festnavals and bloodthirsty scorned suitors.
If there’s one thing they can’t escape, it’s the addiction to each other. And they’ve got it bad.


My Rating: 4 Roses

Dark, unique, and absolutely wonderful! Gargoyle Addiction was definitely unexpected and I really enjoyed it.

I love the world that the author created. Otherworlds, gargoyles, summonari, seers, dragons. It was all well built and very interesting. That was undoubtedly the best part of the book.

Karla was a good heroine. She definitely wasn't going to let anyone, even a gargoyle prince, run all over her. I found her likable, though there were some moments where I got frustrated with her. I can't pinpoint exactly when, but I couldn't connect with her character entirely. Regardless, I thought she was a lovely heroine.

Kann was difficult to figure out. On one hand, he's not a very nice guy. He kills, manipulates, and forces people to do what he wants. And, yet, he could also be very sweet. Though I wanted to whack him a few times for the stupid things he did (though, to be fair, they were extremely tame for a gargoyle), I still liked him. I mean, he is a descendant of the most powerful (and vicious) dragon, so I can't expect him to be all nice guy. And, in the end, he showed that he really was a sweetheart, though I suspect he would literally bite the head off anyone who said it to his face. I liked him. I thought he was great.

The romance was super hot. The attraction between these two was just off the charts. The sparks flew whenever they were together. It was definitely intense. There were sweet moments as well, but, considering the situation they found themselves in, it wasn't that often. I thought they were great together and I can't wait to see how things turn out for them in the next book.

The plot was fast paced and I was kept interested the entire way through. There were twists and surprises along the way. And the ending had me curious for what will happen next.

Gargoyle Addiction was a fantastic New Adult romance. I really enjoyed reading this book. If you're looking for a great NA paranormal romance, this is your book.
