Review: Stone Embrace - Danielle Monsch
Terak has fought all enemies to claim Larissa. It doesn't matter his own Clan looks upon the union with misgivings. It doesn't matter her family see a monster when they see him.
It doesn't matter, because Larissa is his.
And any who would try to take her away? They'll see what a Gargoyle will do to protect his mate.
NOTE: Stone Embrace is not a complete story. It would best be described as an extended 30 page epilogue to the novel Stone Guardian. You'll probably have the most enjoyment reading this story if you have read Stone Guardian and already know the characters and world of the Entwined Realms series.
Entwined Realms Series:
Stone Embrace (Free extended epilogue of Stone Guardian)
The Cage King (Novella) (release date to be confirmed)
The Dream Crafter (release date to be confirmed)
Master of Monsters (release date to be confirmed)

Before I start this review I want to point out that Stone Embrace is an extended epilogue to Stone Guardian and is not meant to be read as a stand alone story. If you're new to the series this really isn't a good place to start (but it's a series I HIGHLY recommend so go and grab Stone Guardian now!). You should also be aware that Danielle Monsch wrote this as a FREE extra for her fans so I would recommend getting your copy via All Romance eBooks or iTunes until Amazon fix their pricing (you may wish to send them a link to the cheaper version using their price match feature to encourage them to fix this faster, I already have).
If you read my review of Stone Guardian last year you'll already know how much I loved the first instalment of Danielle Monsch's new paranormal romance series. In fact, along with fellow bloggers Cory, Ange and Brandi we got a little fan girly over the story and we have all been bugging Danielle for more ever since. We did mention at the time that we would have loved more of an epilogue about the main characters Terak and Larissa, in particular I think we were hoping for more hot sex and I believe it was Cory that mentioned she'd like to see a little tail action since Terak is a gargoyle.
I'm very happy to say that Danielle not only heard our plea, she also acted on it and wrote Stone Embrace! I'm not going to go into much detail about what is included in this 30 page extended epilogue, I'm just going to tell you that if you enjoyed Stone Guardian you will love this short story. I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with Larissa and Terak and this has just left me more eager than ever to continue reading the series.
I had to include a screenshot of the Dedication in my review:
This really made my day so thank you Danielle! Now I can finally cross "corrupt an author" off of my bucket list LOL.
