Fireman Mason James thought finding out he is a Romanus—a rare class of gargoyle—would be the surprise of a lifetime, but he’s proven wrong when he discovers he is the son of a comte and goji nobility. But his newly discovered family doesn’t think his gargoyle lover, Luc, is good enough for a goji of Mason’s stature—how could a warrior ever be? But despite the Moreaus’ uncertainty and elitism, they are Mason’s only chance to unravel the mystery behind his mother’s death, find a solution for the class divide that might separate him from Luc, and discover what it truly means to be a Romanus.
What can I say? I love Mary Calmes and Greg Tremblay. Add them together and I am one happy camper.
Though you could enjoy Chevalier without first reading/listening to Romanus, I would not recommend it.
Picking up a year after the end of Romanus, Mason “Mace” James is settled into his chasse (or tribe) of gargoyles, doing well in his day job as a fireman, and realizing the future he wants with his lover, Luc.
I loved how, once Mace accepted his feelings and hope for the future, he was unwavering in his love and support of Luc and their relationship. I especially appreciated the history and explanation of Mace’s goji roots we get in this installment.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Greg Tremblay’s narration!
Tremblay’s character voices and accents are lovely, and he illustrates the emotions (passion, tenderness, exasperation, and even anger) in the story so well, managing to draw the listener in almost effortlessly, creating a whole world that I didn’t want to leave.
Greg Tremblay gives another fantastic performance!
