Series Description or Overview Edit

Gryphons flying past Skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago.

Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species. That is, until one day she walks out of her apartment only to be attacked by a mob of Zombies, but then is saved by a Gargoyle. Leader of the Gargoyles, Terak has been watching over the human woman for months because of a cryptic prophecy. Gargoyles trust no one outside their Clan, but something about this woman stirs every protective instinct within him. When he realizes the danger to her is real, he refuses to allow her to explore this new world without him at her side. In the course of their investigation Terak becomes entranced by his little human. But when he discovers why Necromancers want her and the great reward that awaits him if he betrays her, he must choose between the welfare of his Clan and not only Larissa’s life, but the fate of this new Realm as well. ~ Stone Guardian | Danielle Monsch

World Edit

The fate of the world is at stake here. The fate of two worlds, actually, the human and the magical world.

Twenty-six years ago, our world collided with several other realms, creating some sort of magical cataclysmic BOOM (I imagine it made a rather large noise). During the big boom, otherwise known as The Great Collision, little Miss Larissa was born to the (now) Chief of Police. Out of the ashes was born a new world made up of people and creatures from many different realms, all stuck on our plain of existence. Predictably, humans feared their new brothers and sisters and so hired several super powerful mage’s to create a ward to trap all the wee beasties outside. Inside their bubble, humans carried on as if things were normal. Not realising that some creatures could get in and out… The Urban Book Thief

Gargoyles society is dignified, steeped in tradition and in many ways, held apart from the rest of the supernaturals and humans. Gargoyles trust no one outside their Clan. Not many people know about Gargoyles—and that’s the way Terak wants to keep it.

Necromancers want Larissa to help them accomplish something that seems impossible—they want to rip apart the human and magical realm, but with a huge cost to a lot of people. And somehow, Larissa is the key to their plan, and they will stop at nothing to obtain her.

Protagonists Edit

✥ Terak the Gargoyle is that wonderful mix of alpha-male leader, gentle romantic, and out-of-his-depth suitor. He is the firm and sure leader of his Clan, providing guidance and protection to his people, who were outcasts in the magical realm and are double outcasts now that there’s a humans-only realm interlocked with theirs. He’s relentless and vicious in his protection of Larissa, as well. However, he’s extremely shy in matters of the heart, not sure if Larissa will be able to accept his differences. Because he’s a giant stone monster. A giant HOT stone monster, though, which seems to mitigate the interspecies weirdness as far as Larissa is concerned. 

✥ Larissa Miller, age 26 with a college degree and a career, bends to the will of her overprotective father and brothers who still chase off her dates. Her character growth involves her breaking out of that. She’s a nonmagical human with supernatural creatures after her. She does actually need Terak’s protection, and even then, she’s not above using her wits (or her car) to get out of danger, although she also makes a couple of doofy decisions. ~ Infinite Reads

✥ Because Larissa Miller is born at the moment that the two worlds collide, and unbeknownst to her or anyone else in the world, she possesses a magical trait that is very rare and coveted. Twenty-six years later, Larissa is a high school history teacher, docilely living out her life in the human realm far away from anything magical or mystical. She has been raised by her overprotective father and her four older brothers, and has lived a closeted, coddled life. She has never experienced anything outside of the human realm, and has no desire to. She is perfectly happy with her sheltered, naive, life. ~ Jessica Loves Books

Fallon: She has a major badass sword and is not afraid to use it. Most of the book though she is…how do I say this a nice way……she was very temperamental. Yeah let’s go with that. She doesn't like anyone and doesn't trust anyone. I would watch my back around her but if you thought she was going to kill you, you’d already be dead. That’s how awesome she is.

Author Edit

Danielle Monsch

Bio: Born to the pothole ridden streets of Pittsburgh, PA, USA Today Bestselling author Danielle Monsch started writing in a time long ago, a time when there were not enough vampire stories to read and she had to write her own to fill the void. Yes, such a time of darkness did indeed exist. Danielle writes stories full of fantastical goodness and plenty of action, but always with lots of romance (and a bit of woo-hoo!) mixed in. Vampires and Werewolves and Demons and Angels, Sword & Sorcery, Fairy Tales, Updated Mythologies and the like - if it's out of the ordinary, it's fair game for her stories. When not writing, Danielle reads comic books and watches cartoons (though she says she reads manga and watches anime, because saying it in a different language makes all the difference.) She listens to music, plays D&D, follows XKCD, watches movies with the Rifftrax on, and is mom to two amazing little girls and wife to her favorite guy in the world. ~ Goodreads | Danielle Monsch

Book Cover Blurbs Edit

BOOK ONE BLURB—Stone Guardian (2013): Gryphons flying past Skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago.

Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species. That is, until one day she walks out of her apartment only to be attacked by a mob of Zombies, but then is saved by a Gargoyle. Leader of the Gargoyles, Terak has been watching over the human woman for months because of a cryptic prophecy. Gargoyles trust no one outside their Clan, but something about this woman stirs every protective instinct within him. When he realizes the danger to her is real, he refuses to allow her to explore this new world without him at her side. In the course of their investigation Terak becomes entranced by his little human. But when he discovers why Necromancers want her and the great reward that awaits him if he betrays her, he must choose between the welfare of his Clan and not only Larissa’s life, but the fate of this new Realm as well. ~ Stone Guardian | Danielle Monsch

BOOK 1.5 BLURB—The Cage King (2014): To the Victor belong the Spoils, and as the Ruler of the Fight Scene, all the spoils belong to Esh - Money, Fame, Power... Everything, except one woman who disappeared five years ago. Now Nalah is back, a member of the Guild and in need of his help to get access to the greatest Cage Match in the New Realms. To Nalah, this is nothing but an assignment, Esh only a tool to be used to collect a magical artifact of great power, and she will not, will not, allow the fire that has always burned bright between them to reignite - no matter how much Esh tempts her. Five years ago Nalah left, and in that time she may have forgotten something, something Esh will remind her of - when The Cage King fights, he always wins. ~ The Cage King (Entwined Realms #1.5) ~ FF

BOOK TWO BLURB—The Dream Crafter (2014): A Legendary Spellbook. Everyone desires it, but he controls it. The most feared mercenary in the New Realms, Merc takes what he thinks is a routine job—guarding a magic spellbook until a secret auction takes place, one where only the most powerful and influential will have the opportunity to bid. But one moment of carelessness makes this job the most personal he has ever had, and if that wasn't enough, his dreams are being invaded by a woman who his every instinct warns is trouble, but he can't stop wanting.

A Legendary Power. Everyone covets it, but can she master it? One moment of terror took away Amana's security and her brother's freedom. Now her life is doing whatever she must to survive, all the while trying to find the way to release her brother from prison. Her answer comes in an offer from the Guild, but the cost is high—using a power she has kept locked away on a man who terrifies her even as he fascinates her. As the auction draws ever closer, Merc and Amana are drawn into a game of cat-and-mouse, captor and captive as they battle for control, even as they work together to thwart the various factions who are willing to do anything to collect the spellbook for themselves. While grudging respect and mutual desire begin to shape their relationship, in the end only one can prevail. What will be the ultimate decision, when the price of victory means the end to the other's dearest dream? ~ The Dream Crafter (Entwined Realms, book 2) ~ FF

BOOK THREE BLURB—: His Monster… Wulver has known captivity – the lash of the whip, the leather of the collar, the clang of prison bars. He has lived it, escaped it, and is determined to never experience it again. Only now, for the good of his pack, he is forced to work alongside a threat to his freedom – a pale-eyed woman who smells of moonlight.

…Will Not Submit to Her.

Known as the Master of Monsters, Rule is able to bend even sentient creatures to her will. Revered and reviled in equal measure for her extraordinary powers, Rule is used to suspicious glances and outright hostility. Not that it matters, not even when it comes from an alpha werewolf whose beast calls to her unlike any other. Together, Wulver and Rule must uncover why werewolves are disappearing. As they follow a twisted path through the underbelly of the New Realms, Wulver has two battles to face – the battle to keep his beast from submitting to the Master of Monsters, and the battle to keep himself from claiming Rule. ~ Goodreads | Master of Monsters

Jack Miller aimed his shotgun at the monster's grey-skinned head and pulled the trigger. ~ book 1
