      GABRIEL S GARGOYLES 4 starsIt was fun getting a glimpse of young Gabriel, although I can t say that he s much different 20 years later He had to grow thick skin at a very young age, but I liked how he can turn any situation to his advantage an excellent lawyer in the making Bullies beat him up, so he steals their money, he hides an obvious stash of cash to keep his junkie mother from finding his real savings I m pretty sure I know who helped him out with his Xmas present for Rose, but that s not [...]

      Gabriel s Gargoyles 3.5 starsI stumbled across this two story collection after finally reading Visions, book 2 in the Cainsville series, and let me just say SO happy that I did I was no where near ready to let go of the world that had finally begun to make sense, and this prequel that gives insight into the both infuriating and intriguing Gabriel Walsh, was the quick fix I didn t even know I needed Gabriel s Gargoyles is a prequel taking us back to Gabriel s childhood and his search for the las [...]

    5. Katie says:

      Ahhh, I can t explain why this is 3 stars without spoilers that s low for me and Armstrong Just for Logan s story view spoiler I just didn t like the ending I don t like it when people who love each other lie to each other Yeah, I get why it happened that way, but it makes me very, very uncomfortable.Edit I was thinking about this because I don t think I explained it very well Something like Logan hiding the dead puppy from Kate, I m okay with But not telling her that he was the one who put the [...]

    6. Laura Summers says:

      Gifted Gifted is a novella by Kelley Armstrong and gives us two short stories One from her Cainsville series and one is a pack story from her Women of the Otherwold series Both are centred around giving that perfect gift for Christmas.Gabriel s GargoylesThe first story is told from a young boy called Gabriel s point of view I have yet to read the Cainsville series, although it is sitting very temptingly on my kindle So the characters and setting were entirely new to me, although I understand Gab [...]

    7. Regina De Los Reyes says:

      Enjoyed the little back story on Gabrielle Sad that he had such a hard time as a child but amazing how resourceful he was Seemed he padded himself with the resourcefulness and smarts so he wouldn t feel lonely but he expressed he didn t like to feel at all Can t wait to learn about him

    8. Danya says:

      Gabriel s Gargoyles 4 5In this story a 10 year old Gabriel is visiting his aunt Rose to celebrate the Winter Solstice December 21 , a pagan holiday that has extra significance in a place like Cainsville The holiday provides Gabriel not Gabe with an escape from his horrible home life in Chicago with Seanna, his drug addicted mother Although Seanna s problems are mentioned in both the full length Cainsville novels, it was still upsetting to hear about little Gabriel s struggles at home No one shou [...]

    9. Jessica (a GREAT read) says:

      Gifted is a perfect read for the holidays Kelley Armstrong brings us two short stories from her amazing series Cainsville Otherworld These were some great reads and really quick ones too, but were still oh so enjoyable Gabriel s GargoylesThis one centers around a young Gabriel as he s saving up to buy the perfect Christmas gift for his great aunt Rose It was kind of cute to see Gabriel as a kid He s already such an odd and mysterious character in the series now, seeing him as a kid, is like seei [...]

    10. Nancy Meservier says:

      Gifted is an ebook that collected two holiday related short stories Gabriel s Gargoyles, which focused on a young Gabriel from Armstrong s Cainsville series, and The Puppy Plan, which focuses on Elena s son Logan, from the Women of the Otherworld series There are also excerpts from both Omens, and the forthcoming subpress novella Forsaken I hate to use the word heartwarming to describe Gifted, as that usually makes people think of cheesy Lifetime esque movies, but it s the best way I can describ [...]

    11. Anniken Haga says:

      I m writting this on my phone as we don t have any net at the moment, so I m sorry for any stupid spelling mistakes that may pop upBRIELS GARGOILS 3 5ok, so this was actually a really cute story, but my biggest problem is the fact that I haven t read the Cainsvile series yet If I had, I d probably have liked this short story a lot .Because it is a really short story, but it gives a look into the character Gabriel, and probably some stuff that happens to him in the main series I may go back and r [...]

    12. Melissa says:

      I loved these two short stories, both were touching and fun to read.Gabriel s youthful search for both the last Gargoyle and the perfect present for his aunt was a joy to read considering his less than idyllic childhood.And Logan s dilemma was equally heartfelt and touching.A great combination of Christmas stories from Kelley Armstrong s Cainsville and Women of the Otherworld series.

    13. Ronda says:

      GABRIEL S GARGOYLES I love Gabriel so I enjoyed reading about his quest to find the last gargoyle It also gives the reader an insight to Gabriel s upbringing, which is really sadLove this series

    14. Maria says:

      Two fun short stories from Armstrong s popular series.

    15. Rebecca says:

      The Puppy Plan Rating 4.5While this is really cute, and shows that I kinda need to get caught up in this series because I can t remember reading about Logan and Kate finding out that they were werewolves I am super behind , I was slightly unsatisfied with the ending view spoiler Why not just tell Kate that they both found and hid the same dog I dislike how far Logan went to hide the secret but it is a believable personality flaw so I didn t really ding the story that much hide spoiler On another [...]

    16. Nona says:

      Thank you, Kelley Armstrong This story takes place right after Forsaken, another must read from KA Wait a minute, sorry, there isn t a single book that s not a must read Anyway, this short is about the werewolf twins, Kate Logan Loved it Even teared up The theme here is family and love and puppies It s also a nice little insight into a slice of their every day I usually talk about the author, but I have used up all of the words I know that say just how great this prolific artist is All of them, [...]

    17. Cat says:

      Applicable to The Puppy Plan only.I really enjoyed seeing the twins be a little older, a little in charge of themselves I love seeing this world grow and expand, and seeing the next generation is fascinating.

    18. Louisa says:

      Oh, man, it was so great to read about Gabriel as a child, and Logan around the same age I love both worlds, and I enjoyed seeing these quick glimpses into them, and I need Caineville

    19. Jennifer McLean says:

      This story about Gabriel s Gargoyles was very sweet and allowed the reader to learn about one of the three main characters in Armstrong s Cainsville series It is short and sweet but does add a vulnerability to our Gabriel character Any fan of the Cainsville series would love this short story.

    20. Jenevieve says:

      Review first published on My Blog Check out all my reviews there Gabriel s Gargoyles set in the Cainsville universe but back when Gabriel was young Every year in Cainsville the children hunt around to find as many of the gargoyles hidden around the town as they can The child who finds the most gets a prize and the one who finds them all will get a gargoyle made in their image put up somewhere in the town Gabriel doesn t care about having a gargoyle made in his image but he is determined to find [...]

    21. Lola says:

      I bought this book as soon as it was released, thinking it would be a great book to read around the holidays This book is very short and contains some excerpts from other books, but I think it was still worth the wait I love Kelley Armstrong her writing style and every time I pick up one of her books I am overwhelmed with that feeling of knowing I read something great and wonder why I haven t read this earlier.Gabriel s GargoylesGabriel s Gargoyles is a short story about Gabriel finding the last [...]

    22. Emma says:

      I loved Gargoyles.A foray into Gabriels history is always an adventure full of emotion for me, NEVER him Puppy Plan was hilarious and so sweet.Jumping further into the future of the twins and seeing how are evolving into werewovles at such a young age I would love to see stories from their pov Especially when they reach adulthood.Pretty please Ms Armstrong gives puppy dog eyes

    23. Primero says:

      Gabriel s Gargoyles 3 stars I don t know if I should have read the main story before read this prequel Because I didn t connect with the character at all I couldn t get a glimpse of the world build I found my mind often drift off while reading Though, Gabriel seemed like an interesting character Then, I read the excerpt It was interesting and piqued my interest At first I though Gabriel was the protagonist, but it was a woman Then Gabriel showed up and make a whole lot of different impression th [...]

    24. Samantha says:

      I haven t read the other series so I only read The Puppy Plan It was a cute story and I liked getting to read about Logan and how he is dealing with his wolf instincts Reading this after Forsaken made it easier to know what they were talking about Which if I read this when it first came out I wouldn t had known I enjoyed knowing about what was happening,but it made me even anxious to know how everything turns out with their problem.Anyway Logan isn t a narrator I knew I would like, but it was i [...]

    25. Lauren says:

      As a fan of both the Cainesville and Women of the Otherworld series, this was the perfect holiday novella book for me Gabriel s childhood story really sheds some light on his past and maybe even the way he acts sometimes living in Cainesville as an adult I really enjoyed seeing this fun glimpse into his past and getting to know him a little better Logan s Christmas story was what sealed the deal for me on this novella Clay and Elena are in my top 3 favorite fictional couples of all time So the s [...]

    26. Jennifer says:

      Gifted features two short stories from two different Kelley Armstrong series.Gabriel s Gargoyles is a Cainsville short story, featuring 10 year old Gabriel Walsh.The Puppy Plan is an Otherworld novella narrated by Logan.Both stories are told in 3rd person narration.I have really enjoyed the first two books in the Cainsville series So I was happy to get a story featuring 10 year old Gabriel Walsh.Now that I ve seen Gabriel as a man it is fascinating to get to see him as a child I really enjoyed t [...]

    27. Kristen says:

      Gifted by Kelley Armstrong really felt like a gift Gabriel s Gargoyles is a refreshing look at what makes Gabriel Walsh the way he is I loved how this story finally gave the background of how Gabriel was able to find all the Gargoyles for May Day In the Cainsville series the readers are repeatedly teased with in congruency of a child who never had a childhood participating in a local childhood tradition It was a fun look at what makes Gabriel tick The Puppy Plan was a great glimpse of the twins [...]

    28. Grail says:

      I m saving the Cainsville stuff for later because, well, I haven t read the Cainsville series yet And, unless I m familiar with their series, I don t like reading novellas short stories that belong into a book series The Otherwolrd part of Gifted was amazing Based of the little bit that was included here, I cannot wait for Forsaken , and up to date I think The Puppy Plan is definitely one of my favorite WotO shorts True, there were some small things in it I wasn t 100% satisfied with namely that [...]

    29. Elaine says:

      Gabriel is such a closed book that it s nice to delve into his story, and the gargoyles of Cainsville are possibly my single most favorite aspect of that series and sadly a minor feature for most of it.The other story revolves around Elena s and Clay s weirdly precocious sounding kids, and I super dislike Elena and everything to do with her sucks because the world and the author disagree with me, and she s got the bulk of the stories , so heavy meh on that note Mostly read this one just because [...]

    30. Melissa says:

      I really enjoyed Gabriel s story Logan s was good too but a little fluffy I would say this is a great read and investment to buy the e book IF you are a fan of Armstrong s books I think the stories are good if you have already read some or all of Otherworld and at least the first Cainsville If you haven t read the series these stories go with it would not be a fair representation of the characters, the worlds, and not even really Armstrong s writing ability All that taken into account I am glad [...]
