Just when I thought Bernie couldn’t surprise me anymore, he does. This was a nice change of pace for me. The gargoyles twist came out of nowhere. Because of the type of book this is, I knew that there was going to be magic involved. However, had I been reading this somewhere else, I wouldn’t have guessed. The way he weaved both the mundane world, and the fantastical events was great.
On a side note, I pre-ordered a full length book of his, and I am very much looking forward to reading it!
