Product description

Product Description

When Lillian finds herself facing off against vampires and other mythological impossibilities, help comes from an unlikely source—the stone gargoyle who has been sleeping in her garden for the last twelve years.

After the battle, Lillian learns the humans she thought were her family are actually a powerful coven of witches at war with the demonic Riven. Lillian is something more than human, a Sorceress and Avatar to the gods. Gregory has been her protector for many lifetimes, but when she was still a child troubles in their homeland forced him to flee with her to the human world. However, Gregory fears something from her childhood followed them to this world—he suspects Lillian is host to an infant demon, one capable of evil greater than even the Riven.

Extra complications arise when she realizes she’s concealing a forbidden love for her guardian. While she might be able to defeat the Riven with Gregory’s help, she does not know if her fragile new love can survive the evil growing in her own soul.


Author's Note: Sorceress Awakening was previously published as Stone’s Kiss and was part of the Urban Fantasy series called The Avatars.


The Gargoyle and Sorceress novels have a continuing story arc and should be read in order:

Sorceress Awakening
Sorceress Rising
Sorceress Hunting
Sorceress at War (Forthcoming)
Sorceress Triumphant (Forthcoming)

A life defined by half-truths and denial leads to unsatisfied perceptions of a life that never truly was; only through acceptance can life be fully experienced - anything less is make-believe. The lies disguised as half-truths throughout Lillian's current lifetime, whether intended for foul or good, are just that - lies. What these deceptions lead to are most likely amongst the greatest harms done in her short life; and inevitably leave her ill-equipped to deal with the damage done to her, for which the lies saught to counteract.

The depth of machinations wrought by The Lady of Battles in all their nefarious beauty are never more apparent than when the true nature of her foresight, which allowed her to manipulate two eternal partners' love to be that which undermines and weakens them to point of failure, are never more apparent than when hidden meanings are finally revealed in the closing climax of the novel.

By foreseeing that which eternal love predicts will be, a being incapable of love for having become devoid of its embraces through her inconsolable grief, can manipulate two warriors of light to be the servants of dark by doing that which comes most natural. Choices whilst being 'natural' in said dilemmas thus are completely deleterious to their purposes. At such times, an effective mechanism highlighted throughout the novel which is able to stall these mechanations is duty.

Perhaps through such instances it is understandable that in many fables and lore, duty in and of itself, is depicted to be a true antagonist to love. The absorbing and detailed way in which these revelations are precipitated in the reader's mind by Lisa Blackwood's writing, are amongst the most intuitive ways in which said realisations are experienced.

Enjoyable mix of characters and narrative. Novel premise that unwinds and draws in the reader. Definately rereadable. Certainly a complete story in itself and a great series start.

I chose this rating for a very good reason. I am hooked on how vivid some people can think up enough of these stories to fill a single book let alone a complete series. How do they put it all together in such a manner to hold peoples interest for many hours. Wow.
