They have been hidden to spare us the terrifying truth about our human existence. They have been hidden to keep us safe. They have been hidden, because they are the highest order of exorcist on Earth. Consecrated within the church, they vow their demi-mortal lives to a single purpose: saving human souls from demons and evil angels bent on dragging them to Hell. When Iseo is sent to the cathedral at Santiago de Compostela, Father Tomas trains her to become the first female Maker of Gargoyles. Guided by heavenly visions, she carves the glorious gargoyle she names Celestino. For forty days, he exists as a man of flesh and sangre and a winged-lion, before resting for seven days in stone. Iseo knows the beast well, but the man surprises her. Their mutual innocence complicates the natural bond between Maker and gargoyle, as it blossoms with the first forbidden blush of love. They must fight the temptation to give in to love, as Celestino learns to fight the demons he vanquishes back to Hell. Celestino possesses the strength to wrestle the unclean back to the Underworld, but does he possess the strength to resist a single kiss from Iseos lips?
