Book Description:

Buried at sea by the sorcerers who created him, Abaddon is unable to heal himself and unable to replenish his energy. He has lived here for longer than he can remember, with no hope of escape. Time is against him as the sea eats away at him, body and soul.

When her diving partner tries to kill her to take over her company, Sarah finds herself trapped beneath the waves and dying. Having brought light to Abaddon's dark existence at last, only she can grant him the courage to do what must be done to escape his watery prison.

Abaddon must sacrifice his wings to save her. Sarah must come to terms with being trapped with someone she has been raised to believe is a demon, and face the betrayal that nearly destroyed her and the company she built. Together, they must take on the ocean and their own fears. The consequence of failure is death.

My Take: This is another win for Shannon Phoenix. I actually almost missed this tour. With work being so crazy I have not been keeping up with my emails. Lucky for me there was still a slot available! I reviewed the first book in this series earlier this year and am happy to say this one is even better than the first.

With the amount of books I tend to go through originality is something I truly appreciate. Shannon has created a fantastic world where Gargoyles are more than just the scary statues on old churches. Her creatures as compassionate and tortured and easily lovable. 
This story worked well as a standalone. You could easily pick it up and not feel lost at all. Even so it does a great job building upon the original novel and peeking the readers interest in regards to what is to come. I will be keeping a lookout for the next book and you should be too.

About the Author:

Shannon Phoenix always wrote stories. She watched the characters take on their lives within her mind, and began to write down what they were doing. She would write the stories and then let them go. But a few years ago, she got caught writing those stories. You know... those stories.
To her surprise, the person who found her stories loved her characters as much as Shannon did. She tentatively allowed others to read the stories, as well, and it was from that first foray into the scary world of letting others read her 'little tales' that Shannon Phoenix Books was born.

Shannon lives in New Hampshire with her husband John, her daughter, and their family cat, Song. Her full time job is parenting, her part time job is as a mother's helper to a family friend, and her passion is letting the characters in her mind out on paper--or keyboard, as the case may be.

Welcome to Shannon Phoenix Books. May you find the magic in your own life.


  1. Hi Delia!

    It's so nice to be on your blog again. I noticed you'd been gone for a couple of days, so I'm mostly glad to see that you're back, yay!

    This, by the way, is a supplemental novel, not book 2. :)

    I know well what you mean about being so busy with work. I feel like I'm stretching both ends and there's still not enough time in the middle!

    I'm so delighted that you liked the book. I was on tenterhooks waiting to find out.

    Thank you so much for having me again, it's truly an honor!

  2. I was so glad to read this one, and I can't wait to read book 2!
