However, then there are these rare times when you pleasantly find, not only have you won but you have gotten back more than you put in.
Bound by the restraints of, `what is hot right now,' the new release market does tend to get very stale very quickly and while I enjoy stories containing vampires, werewolves and witches, I find myself getting increasingly tired of the identical driven plots, (same colour, different shade).
This is roundabout the time when I delve into the world of Indie authors as they have the tendency to shine and surprise you when you least expect it and you discover a great book that you have to tell others about.
I may be in my early 30's and this book's intended reading age would mainly appeal to teens, but the amount of effort paid to detail and the enthralling storyline is enough to hook all lovers of the fantasy genre. The characters are fun and memorable, their unique gifts interesting and with a touch of comedy, mystery and action thrown in, the Mason McQueen books could very well grow into a must read series.
With minimal errors this well written book is plot driven and the story builds at a good strong place and entices you to continue at the end of each chapter.
Don't be fooled into thinking this is another Harry Potter rip off as the ending will surprise you all and leave you desperately wanting to continue the story in the next book. One to watch!
Definitely worth a read and i'm looking forward to continuing the story when the next book arrives. well done.
This is a new teen series for a new generation and Mason McQueen and the gargoyle's curse (book 1) has done an amazing job of setting the scene for what could be the beginning of something quite special. Every chapter of the book seems to spur you on to read the next, revealing only a snippet of information at a time that nagged at my curiosity and kept me guessing as I switched between different theories I had concocted. Normally I find it difficult to warm to new characters but after reading a third of the book I quickly grew to like Mason, Blaine and Chloe and found myself really wishing someone would teach egotistical Hunter a good lesson in humility.
Unknown outcomes now plague certain characters and only at the end do we find out we have merely scratched the surface of a far bigger problems to come. I look forward to discovering what will happen next and encourage all fans of fantasy to give this book a read.

For me, this was a boring read. The story waffled on and on about mundane things, giving way too much information that wasn't relevant to the story. Read morePublished on 10 April 2014 by Wendy
