* Extraordinary ... The Gargoyle has a big personality ... An exotic adventure. Daily Telegraph * Reads like a thriller Guardian * Wildly imaginative ... Bound to be an international bestseller. Observer * Compulsively readable ... the pages almost turn themselves. Metro * Mixing romance, classic allusion and reality, Davidson's debut is a bravura performance. **** Marie Claire * Horrifying and fantastical, this exploration of deathless love shocks and mesmerizes. Good Book Guide * Totally absorbing, it is the most amazing debut novel. -- John Bishop Daily Express

The debut from Winnipeg writer Davidson is a sweeping tale of undying love between a burn victim and a sculptress of gargoyles who claims the pair have been lovers throughout ancient times. Brought to life in a spirited yet intensely personal reading by Lincoln Hoppe, the story resonates well beyond the first listen. Hoppe reads with tremendous passion and intensity, never going over the top, but always drawing his audience into the tale with a raw performance. Through suffering, pain, hatred and love, Hoppe captures the very essence of this enthralling tale and allows listeners to journey along wherever the tale goes. A Doubleday hardcover (Reviews, June 16). (Sept.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
