Review by: Twisted Root Publishing on Sep. 24, 2011 :
Marcelle Dube's interesting fantasy story sets Bittan, the daughter of a high priestess of an ancient god in a the modern city of Montreal. The God expects Bittan's obediance and love, and has set a Chimere (gargoyle) to protect her. Unfortunately that protection also keeps Bittan sacrosanct for the God. But a modern woman can't really be expected to cleave only to stone, so a fledgling romance places her lover in danger. The final poignant scenes of this story actually made me a little misty eyed as I made the choice with her. I mean who wants to kill your lover? But who wants to kill a God?
