Twelve months after his change, Alec MacAidan is still getting used to his many vampire talents. While most vampires would give anything to have more than one supernatural power, Alec craves nothing more than peace and time alone with Cronin. But when Alec meets entities from outside this realm, he’s left powerless in their presence.
Zoan are half-Lycan, half-dragon creatures that have slipped through time and reality, seemingly undetected by man and vampire. Or have they? They bear an uncanny resemblance to gargoyles, leaving Alec’s view on all things weird to get a whole lot weirder.
This new quest leads Alec, Cronin, and their band of friends to Paris, Rome, and Moscow, where they learn that gargoyles aren’t simply statues on walls. In the underground pits beneath churches all over the world, Alec discovers the Key’s true destiny. Facing the Zoan might take every talent he has.
And he may need help from the dead to get them all out alive.
Review: This is the third book in the Cronin’s Key series. I absolutely loved this book and will definitely have to read books one and two which I did not have to time to read first.
This book is full of fascinating history of different places and creatures that I found riveting and stunning at times. I was completely spellbound by Alec’s many abilities throughout the book. They were a fascinating blend of things I’ve read in other books and some I have not.
I loved Alec’s character. He seemed smart to a point and tried his best to solve any dilemma that came at him. He was loyal and protective of his friends. Cronin was fiercely protective of Alec, especially when it came to something wanting to harm him. I loved that even though he could be fierce he was also tender and caring.
I loved the entire book. This book has a lot going on in it, from meeting new characters that are intent on harm, to talking to a vampire that can commune with the dead. I was mesmerized by the whole story line. I was slowly immersed in a fantastic world of paranormal creatures that took my breath away. Very well written and fascinating.
