    Flesh and Stone is the second book in Vickie Taylor's growing gargoyle series. I continued to enjoy her mythology which was set up in the first book even though it was not really advanced in this one. Although I will admit I really didn't like Connor in the first book, Carved in Stone, I /5(2). The cost of the book does not include the cost of constructing the golem’s body. Once the golem is finished, the writing in the manual fades and the book is consumed in flames. When the book’s ashes are sprinkled upon the golem, it becomes fully animated.

    Note: Citations are based on reference standards. However, formatting rules can vary widely between applications and fields of interest or study. The specific requirements or preferences of your reviewing publisher, classroom teacher, institution or organization should be applied. This is a book to sit down with and linger over. The juxtaposition of classical statuary seen from a unique angle and men in unique postures is brilliant. The use of natural light transforms stone into flesh and vice versa. The shots of lovers in a pool--the abstracted lyricism is breathtking. Buy two copies because you'll want to share this frithwilliams.com:
