Overview
AN OLD FRIEND OF THE FAMILY...

Alexandra Belarus is a struggling artist living in New York City, even though her family is rich in real estate, including a towering Gothic Gramercy Park building built by her great-great-grandfather. But the truth of her bloodline is revealed when she is attacked on the street and saved by an inhumanly powerful winged figure. A figure who knows the Belarus name...

Lexi's great-great-grandfather was a Spellmason--an artisan who could work magic on stone. But in his day, dark forces conspired against him and his, so he left a spell of protection on his family. Now that Lexi is in danger, the spell has awoken her ancestor's most trusted and fearsome creation: a gargoyle named Stanis.

Lexi and Stanis are equally surprised to find themselves bound to each other. But as they learn to work together, they realize that only united can they save the city they both love...

The Belarus name is famous for real estate, but 22-year-old artist Alexandra Belarus would rather spend her days in the studio that once belonged to her great-great-grandfather, Alexander, than meet with contractors. Then, over a very eventful two days, Lexi survives two attacks, discovers ancient family magic, and realizes that her brother's accidental death may not be that accidental. Thankfully, she has her new friend Stanis, a gargoyle created by Alexander with Spellmasonry, which gives life to inanimate objects. Stanis has but one mission; to protect the Belarus family from the malevolent Servants of Ruthenia and other dangers. As the bond between Stanis and Lexi grows, she tries to return him to his full power before she encounters a foe he can't save her from. Strout (the Simon Canderous novels) keeps things moving with action on every page as Lexi develops improbably quickly into a Spellmasonry adept. The dialogue between Lexi and her friends is fast-paced, but the attempt at capturing twentysomething slang comes off as adolescent, though it does lend plenty of humor. (Oct.)
