Pretty Little Indies: Rebecca Chastain

Happy January, y'all! I'm so excited to share Rebecca Chastain' novella, Magic of the Gargoyles, today! Don't forget to enter the giveaway!

Magic of the Gargoyles by Rebecca Chastain

Genre: Fantasy

Someone has kidnapped a nest of helpless baby
gargoyles and is using them as pentagram focuses,
devouring their magic—and their lives—for a horrific, illegal power boost. Swept into the dangerous underworld of black magic, earth elemental Mika Stillwater must cobble together her limited resources and skills to have a chance at being the hero the baby gargoyles desperately need. If she fails, the city will be at the mercy of the gargoyles’ murderers and their overwhelming destructive magic.

But pitting herself against powerful black-magic villains is proving just as deadly for Mika as for the gargoyles.
  I was absolutely blown away by Magic of the Gargoyles and blown away by Rebecca Chastain. The descriptions of the world that Mika resides in immediately caught my attention. From the very beginning, I was hooked! The book weaves together a tale with magic in a way that reminds me of why I love fantasy. 

  Mika was a great character! I loved her resolve at helping the baby gargoyles. I hope that I can read more about Mika and her magical worlds from this promising author. You cannot go wrong with Magic of the Gargoyles if you're looking for a quick fantasy read!
