Blurb: Fireman Mason James thought finding out he is a Romanus—a rare class of gargoyle—would be the surprise of a lifetime, but he’s proven wrong when he discovers he is the son of a comte and goji nobility. But his newly discovered family doesn’t think his gargoyle lover, Luc, is good enough for a goji of Mason’s stature—how could a warrior ever be? But despite the Moreaus’ uncertainty and elitism, they are Mason’s only chance to unravel the mystery behind his mother’s death, find a solution for the class divide that might separate him from Luc, and discover what it truly means to be a Romanus.



Mason’s living out his life with his lover Luc when an unexpected surprise comes in the form of long lost family. But his family are far from happy with his choice of a lover. While learning about who he is and what that means, Mason must figure out how to deal with his newfound family and their distaste for Luc. Will Mason and Luc be able to survive visiting this new family when there’s threats at every corner?

I absolutely adored this book! I’ve been waiting for a sequel for so long that I had to go back and read Romanus to make sure I remembered everything. I’m glad I did because it made me adore Chevalier even more. I just loved the connection between Mason and Luc and the fact that Mason didn’t care if Luc was of a different goji. It was interesting to see them try to deal with Mason’s new family while getting closer at the same time. Just loved these two so much!!

My only real compliant with this one is the amount of sex in it! There was just too much for my tastes with how short this book was. Aside from that (and this isn’t a compliant), I wish we had learned more about the history of gargoyles. We get a good amount of info but I wanted mooooooore.

All in all, a great sequel to Romanus. I loved getting back to Luc & Mason and finally getting to know more about the history of gargoyles and what a Romanus is. I hope this won’t be the last we see of them because I seriously love these two so much! Plus, it’ll be interesting to see where things go from here considering how Mason left his father!

Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
