These are just a few of the days humans prophesied as bringing catastrophic events that would end the world. We predicted nuclear warfare. Drastic climate change. A call from God.
We were wrong.
Cue the gargoyle invasion—laboratory bred mutants designed to slaughter humans. When the government goes AWOL and gargoyles are swarming by the hundreds, it’s up to the citizens of the United States to regroup and save themselves.
Meet Cliff Matthews, a teenage boy separated from his entire family with the exception of his younger sister, whom he is desperate to keep alive. Along the quest to save their lives, he encounters people who aren’t all that they seem. Everyday’s a battle, but if he can’t trust his own species, where does that leave his family?
And we can’t forget the man who may be willing to sacrifice Cliff’s life, if it means world domination.
In terms of doomsday, no one could’ve seen this coming.

Excerpt!

Angel’s chest was rising and falling rapidly as the gargoyles circled them silently. Hunter had never wanted something more in her entire life than to live for another day. She couldn’t even entertain the idea of little Angel being gobbled up by the big bad gargoyle…
 She squeezed her eyes shut. Please, please, please, she chanted silently over and over.
She knew the type of wound a scratch had given Cliff. What type of pain would they concur on her entire body? Would they eat her right away or save her for dinner? Would they pluck out her limbs and eat them one by one?
Time stopped as the door creaked open. The gargoyles soundlessly cloaked themselves back in the shadows. The stairs groaned as someone walked down the stairs without a care in the world. Hunter could practically hear the gargoyles lick their lips.
She wanted to cry out and warn the person. But it was beyond her control.
That’s what you get for walking down the stairs so loudly. That’s what you get for walking in the dark during a damn invasion, she reasoned. But her heart was saying something else.
The person reached the bottom of the stairs. The gargoyles uniformly shifted through the shadows. “Hey…” he said suspiciously.
He had realized his danger a second too late. He broke into a run, but the gargoyles would be on him in a second. And he’d be dead.
“C’mon, sweetie.” Hunter whispered to Angel, crawling out from under the stairs. Ignoring the cries of agony, pain, and sorrow, she raced up the stairs. The wood banged against her ankles, but she didn’t stop. There was the cruel sound of cracking. Hunter shielded Angel’s eyes from the scene and dared to look behind her.
The gargoyles were circled around the man. The predominantly bigger gargoyle bit his neck. A gush of blood spewed across its face. The man’s eyes still stared at her, his mouth formed in an O, as if he was trying to speak to her.
“I’m so sorry.” She choked.
She hurried up the steps, slamming her body into the door. The light washed over her body, as did her relief. But her nerves did not settle.

 My Review

Dude, Gargoyles are awesome! Well, sometimes, cuz in this one maybe not so much. I happen to like them lots 🙂 And get ready to stay on the edge of your seat because this one is a fun thrill ride! I would also maybe say it’s a genre bender, because it’s paranormal for the supernatural part, it’s definitely suspenseful and thrilling, and it’s also maybe a little on the horror side. It’s definitely a page turner, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! 

Cliff is your main character, and as a young boy, he’s just trying to keep himself and his brother and sisters alive. He is only trying to make decisions that will let them live. He joins up with the few others still alive to try to accomplish this. Plus there’s another part, other than the gargoyles to fear, and boy does this make it suspenseful. I find Cliff to be a great character. He’s loyal, he’s dedicated, he’s fierce. He’s also full of worry when he get separated from some of his family. He’s a very realistic character. He’s also got some flaws that I won’t spoil. He’s a fighter, and won’t give up. What’s not to love?!

There’s multiple bad guys, well, because it’s the damn apocalypse. LOL I almost want to call it distopian, but it’s more like the events and occurrences that start the distopian feel. You could call it that though. I loved the lore and backstory and I definitely liked the characters. There’s also a rush from reading this one. I will say, maybe don’t read this one right before bed. You WILL be up, late, trying to find out what happens, and you won’t be falling asleep to this one. 🙂 Another reason why I loved it, I just didn’t want to stop.  I also hope this can continue because I want to KNOW…. I enjoyed the writing style. It’s a little different, and it shows three different POVs. 

Overall, a very well done story. I would like more please 🙂 LOL a HEARTSTOPPING JAW DROPPING 4.5 PAWS!!!
