The Acropolis (Acropolis #1) by R.K. Ryals Blog Tour Stop

"We have a new assignment for you, Mr. Reinhardt."

These words are not comforting to me. At eighteen, I am a gargoyle who has been demoted because I broke the rules. Now I have a new mission, a new mark to protect. But I don't expect Emma Chase. I don't expect to question my own race. I don't expect to care for my own mark. And I am not prepared for what I find at The Acropolis.



The Acropolis is a new and refreshing read for me. I read an ARC copy for the blog tour I am participating in hosted by AToMR. I have to say that this book blew me away. I have never ever read a book about Gargoyles so when I started reading this book I was afraid it was going to be weird but on the contrary RK does a superb job at combining the Gargoyles and humans beautifully. 

Conor Reinhardt is a Gargoyle and he lives to protect others. He loves doing his job until he breaks some rules and is demoted. He now has to watch over a human Emma Chase. Conor is not thrilled with his new assignment because he must get Emma to the school called The Acropolis safe and sound and that is no easy task. But Conor will do whatever it takes to protect mankind so if getting Emma there in one piece is what he is to do then he will do it.

What Conor does not expect is to really like Emma as a person and then something more. As he sets out protecting her and bringing her to her new school he explains things to her and she finds out what she is. Together the two of them will discover that sometimes people hide things from you with the best intentions but in the end when you find out the truth it is what you do with that truth is what will define you. Together Conor sets out to help Emma but what they get in return is much more than they ever expected.
I am a Native Mississippian who started writing in elementary school. I was a reserved child who threw away almost everything I wrote. Later, when I was older, I discovered the crumpled pieces of my work in a box in my mother's hope chest. When I asked her why she saved the work, she replied,

"What you considered trash, I considered genius." 

It has been my motto ever since. My mother passed in 2005. She is missed.

I am the scatterbrained (no lie) mother of three, and I live in Mississippi with my husband and three divalicious daughters and a female shitszu (also a diva)named Tinkerbell. My poor husband!

Redemption is a three book series following young, brash Dayton Blainey. The first two books are now available on for kindle and in print.
