Heart of Stone by C E Murphy

'What secrets lie shrouded in darkness?
Okay, so jogging through Central Park after midnight wasn't a bright idea. But Margrit Knight never thought she'd encounter a dark new world filled with magical beings-not to mention a dying woman and a mysterious stranger with blood on his hands. Her logical, lawyer instincts told her it couldn't all be real-but she could hardly deny what she'd seen...and touched.

The mystery man, Alban, was a gargoyle. One of the fabled Old Races who had hidden their existence for centuries. Now he was a murder suspect, and he needed Margrit's help to take the heat off him and find the real killer. And as the dead pile up, it's a race against the sunrise to clear Alban's name and keep them both alive.

This is the first in a new series the Negotaiator Trilogy by C E Murphy and what a fantastic new world she has created! Margrit is a very interesting character and this book is told from both Margrits and Alban's point of view which puts an interesting view on things.

The world created here is drawn up quite slowly that said this is far from a slow book it was just a great way of getting you to understand the world that has been created. The beginning I felt Margrit seemed a little different to the character she turned into, not sure if that was intentional.

This being a trilogy of course the ending leaves you wanting more so can't wait for the nxt book out next month!
