Summary

A New York Times Bestseller


The Gargoyle: the mesmerizing story of one man's descent into personal hell and his quest for salvation.

On a dark road in the middle of the night, a car plunges into a ravine. The driver survives the crash, but his injuries confine him to a hospital burn unit. There the mysterious Marianne Engel, a sculptress of grotesques, enters his life. She insists they were lovers in medieval Germany, when he was a mercenary and she was a scribe in the monastery of Engelthal. As she spins the story of their past lives together, the man's disbelief falters; soon, even the impossible can no longer be dismissed.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Davidson had me feeling i'd go mad right along side his characters. The stories within the story stay with you long after you've read it too....

    Loved loved this book, I am surprised that its listed as horror. It has very detailed depiction of the pain he was living thru, loved the story in the story. I will read it again, I too was disappointed by the end, and was predictable. The rest of the book was amazing and could not put it down.

    This is a great book with a cativating story. One of this books that once you start reading it you cannot stop because you have to see how it ends! It should not be on the horror category though…. It is definitely in my list of best books.

    Intriguing throughout, but the end left me a little flat. Definitely learned a lot about Dante and life in the 1400s, though the book never dwelled on such matters. Still pondering if she was really crazy or not...

    As an avid reader, I have read many good books, but this is solidly in my top 5. The beginning is fairly shocking and somewhat difficult to read because the pain of his life is so expertly conveyed, but this book was a constant page turner with well written characters and a captivating overall plot.
