5.0 out of 5 stars "Les Gargouillen" series book 3 5 Dec 2009
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
VT's third instalment in her world of shape shifters and pagan magic has been a much longer wait than anticipated for fans; "Legacy of Stone" finally available in book stores far past its original cited publication date of Dec 2006. So after a 3 year wait and high expectations following the thrilling first two books of this series "Carved in Stone" and "Flesh and Stone", did VT deliver a paranormal romance worthy of such a long wait? Have readers remembered this up and coming new series despite the fact the last book was printed so long ago? Have my own sporadic internet searches to check the status of this book been worth it?

The answer is a five star yes! "Legacy of Stone" is definitely the best book of this series so far. It has action, peril, magic, romance and moments that pull at your heart strings. Familiar faces Nathan and Rachel (from "Carved in Stone") and Connor and Mara (from "Flesh and Stone") feature; although Rachel and Nathan understandably much more so. Rachel has spent years searching for her brother Levi; adopted into a different family following the murder of their parents. As a result Levi has no knowledge he is a part of a secret society of cursed shape shifters and when introduced to this new magical world, he has no idea who the good guys are and who he should place his trust in.

Along for the ride as Levi begins to understand the powers he wields is somewhat girlfriend and his ex-boss Tasha, a loner like he is with a past she too is unwilling to disclose. Their relationship is interesting; although lovers for years the pair are not emotionally close and certainly do not confide in each other, yet Tasha knows of Levi's shape shifting ability and accepts it.

This book has been eagerly awaited by myself and I assume it will be as good as the previous two in the series, BUT... AS AMAZON HAS NO COPY TO SELL ME, WITHIN ONE WEEK OF PUBLICATION !! - I'm unable to offer a review, just register my disappointment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for closure... 8 Dec 2009
By B. Szwiec - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It has taken some time for this book to finally make it into print, and if truth be told, it shows. If you've read the first two novels in Taylor's Gargoyle series, you won't want to miss this one as it answers many questions and provides closure for the main story arc and characters who've been introduced along the way. For me, the best parts of the book were those that included the return of Rachel, Nathan, Teryn, Connor and the brief glimpse of Mara.

The rest of the story, including the development of Levi and Tasha as characters along with their relationship was rather a drag. I've been a fan of Vickie Taylor's writing both with this series and in the anthologies (Bite and Demon's Delight), but I don't think she was really feeling the characters on this one. Levi's progression and development became hard to credit mid-book as he continually made choices that seemed lacking in intelligence and common sense. Not only that, as another reviewer noted, he had little regard for his female heroine's input, even when she was the only one who seemed to be thinking clearly. In the end, there's not much about their relationship that feels like "romance". They get their HEA when all is said and done, but again, it required too much suspension of disbelief to make it credible or even satisfying.

The reunion with Levi's family probably should have come sooner. I would have liked to see more interaction between him and the 'good guys' - the Chicago congregation of Gargoyles that were the true legacy of his father and his family. But, that was apparently not to be. So, the book itself is probably a 2-star read, but I'm giving it 3 for its place in the series as a whole. (Nathan's and Connor's books are well worth reading.) As it stands, it seems possible that Ms. Taylor could continue this series (the climax with the evil Romanus was somewhat open-ended). I'd certainly give it one more shot based on the strength of her previous work. But an installment this troubled might just end up being dead on arrival.

On another note, it seems weird that Amazon is not selling this title in paperback directly? I had no trouble picking up a copy at my local B&N...

2.0 out of 5 stars Legacy of Stone 2 Dec 2009
By C. Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a 2 star read. And thats sad since I so enjoyed the other gargoyle stories written by Ms Taylor. Legacy of Stone is the story of Levi Tremain and his attempts to discover his heritage and hopefully explain why he can do the things he can. Natasha Cole is the captain of the boat he's been crewing on and his part time lover. For those of you that remember the first story, Levi is the missing brother that Rachel and her husband have been looking for. This was boring to me honestly as evident by the fact that I put it down several times in my attempts to read. And maybe it was because Levi was so blind and bull headed.
Possible spoilers below

He was willing to believe a complete stranger over a woman that he had known and slept with for two years. A woman that he admitted he completely trusted. When Tasha tells him that Roman is creepy and that they should get away as soon as possible he insist on staying. When he is given evidence that makes Roman look guilty of killing his friends,he still doesnt leave because Roman can give him history and stories of others like him. By the time he sees the light they are in a huge mess and have to fight to escape Roman and Rachel and her friends are injured trying to save them.

Another thing that bothered me was the clues to Tasha's possible powers, even by the end I dont think I clearly understood what she was or why she was the way she was. Overalll this just didnt do it for me nor did it hold my attention.

I'm sorry I usally don't write bad reviews. But Levi needs a two x four to the head. He is stupid. I don't know what else to call him.
Oh Roman is not evil he's just keeping us here against our will. Levi get headahes when he's with Roman But he's not a bad guy. He tells Tash.
The girlfriend tells Levi that Roman's Henchman tried to kill her. Levi makes excuses.
Sorry I am rambling But I am so mad how this book is going. Oh for you Kindle readers about 81% in He gets a brain.

This was a 'good' book' it did drag from time to time. But I kept at it and finally made it through. With time, I think Vickie Taylor can be a good author.
