    The GarLycans have just been added in the mix and this world keeps expanding and becomes more complicated.Since book 1, I was dying to read about the story of Aveoth the GarLycan Lord. I was not disappointed. The story was fast-paced, interesting and a nice introduction to the GarLycan’s society and their strange customs.Aveoth is a good leader. He cares about his people; he is fair but also ruthless when he sees injustice. He deserves his happy ending. His biggest secret is that he is also part VampLycan and he has an appetite for blood – especially for the blood of the granddaughter of Decker Filmore.Decker Filmore sees an obvious opportunity here. So, he kidnaps his clueless granddaughter, Jill, and he will try to use her as leverage in order to get Aveoth to help him. Decker really wants to get his clan back and establish his power over the rest of the clans of the VampLycans.Jill is smart-mouth girl, full of spirit and nerve. When suddenly she becomes the intended bride of a strange good-looking man who can fly and lives in a cave; she won’t be petrified. She will try to understand and she will eventually fall in love.A really nice story. If you follow the series from book 1, this is the book where the story basically comes full circle. You will learn the secret about Aveoth’s father and you will see the conclusion for the parallel story of Decker and his evil plans.Just a suggestion: it maybe a good idea to have a glossary of terminology in the beginning of each book.

    “I give you my solemn vow. You’ll be my everything, Jill”“I will protect and love you until my dying breath, and even beyond that".This series hasn't been my favorites from this author and I honestly thought this would get a low rating at first but I'm happy that I was wrong. Since the beginning Lord Aveoth intrigued me he seemed mysterious and broody.I thought he was going to push his heroine away or fight his feelings for her but I was wrong again he was all the way in from the moment he met her, on the other hand she was the one doing the pushing away and sometimes she annoyed me. I did liked that she was sassy and strong and sometimes bitchy. And the best of all she was NOT a virgin, sure she didn't have that much experience but at least she wasn't a virgin. 👏🏻😁Anyway... I liked the book a lot.Safety:(view spoiler)[ some OW drama, there was a woman who wanted to mate with him and she undressed in front of him, he was bothered by it, he threw her out of his house and wanted nothing to do with her and heroine saw this but he told the heroine this OW was nothing compared to the heroine's beauty and that he never even notice her body. No OM drama. No sexual abuse.He wasn't a manwhore he had a lover for 4 years long before meeting h but he never loved her but he cared for her and even though he had sex with her, he never slept in the same bed with her. He told the heroine that she's the first he had feelings for.(hide spoiler)]

    3 and 1/2 stars.It was not bad, but slightly formulaic. The dialogues were sometimes stilted, forced... I got the feeling that it wasn't flowing as it should...Still it was nice seeing a different Aveoth, not just a stone-faced warrior! :)

    4 "Bat baby" Stars!Love it. LD is my go to girl for completely guilty pleasure reads. This series has been hit or miss but thankfully this one was a hit!! I've wanted Aveoth's story from the beginning and I wasn't disappointed. He's a basses sweetheart. Everything a girl could want in a garlycan mate. 😱😨😲😂😂😂Garlycan Mate! (The things I read... ) Jill was a total smartass. A little too much so at times, but she was hilarious. I liked her a lot. All the females leads in this series seem to range from just slightly bitchy but tolerable, to way over the top I want to slap you so hard bitchy. Jill was in the slightly category. There's a cool little secret revealed in this one that I was happy to know. Made sense. I wonder if it will stay secret for long and if it will effect the future of the series. Anywho, can't wait to see what Ms. LD gives us next- in this series or any of her others. I'll be in. Kinda hope there's a new New Species book soon though. They're my favs. Happy reading!

    Having lost leadership of his clan and key Vampire Council support, Decker Filmore finds a bargaining chip to use against Lord Aveoth, leader of the Gargoyles, to cement an alliance that would all but guarantee his return to power and subsequent destruction of enemies. Jillian Milzner and her mother have been hiding from her biological father for most of her life running from place to place until such time as his representatives find them though they're able to escape each time. With her mother now deceased, Jillian's on her own which may be why, this time when they find her, she's caught. Finding out it's her grandfather who has abducted her with plans to serve her up as a concubine to a reclusive paranormal ruler ups the ante as Jillian discovers her blood is the sole reason she's been sought after all her life. Now a pawn in a political paranormal war, Jillian is offered up as a prize to guarantee that her grandfather wins. * * * 7th installment in the VLG series that FINALLY features Aveoth, Gargoyle leader. Can be read as a standalone though better appreciated if reader has working knowledge of past installments. To say I've been looking forward to this story is an understatement as the buildup (in previous installments) has been stressing me out. Stone cold emotionless Aveoth has had a rough life and even rougher history in the romance/love department finally gets a mate. About time. This book is pretty much a straightforward format romance between Jillian & Aveoth with a few roadblock obstacles thrown in to spice things up. Roadblocks that include Decker and his ongoing quest to become King and Alveoth's judgmental clan who are resistant to change. For fans of the series and author, I'm sure this will be very appreciated and enjoyed. The actual romance between Jillian & Alveoth does eventually hit the adult content threshold though me, myself, and I felt there was more smoke than fire between the two. I had high hopes that these two were a match when they first meet as nothing says love more than busting heads and breaking bones in my book. Alas, the chemistry just wasn't as combustible as I'd hoped in subsequent scenes. In addition, unanswered questions linger. Non-spoiler vague comment example: a kiss is a kiss but is a kiss always a kiss forever more and beyond? The cast of secondary characters was a successful blend of pros and cons that supporting the main characters and provided depth to the world building. Stand oust for me were Kelzeb, Chaz, & Fray though for different reasons. Jobi was a scene stealer and I loved him for that. Underappreciated character award goes to Mack. This character had so much potential and could have added a heck of a lot in terms of twists, turns, etc but wasn't. I'm also bummed about Lane and all circumstances surrounding her - I had high hopes maybe she and Winalin had history.... Oh well. Regarding the actual story line and series plot side of things. I was looking for smoke, mirrors, etc in the story line that just weren't there. Overthinking on my part for sure but it is what it is. What I wouldn't have given to be a beta read or editor for this story. I guess the major issue I have is that for the overall series Alveoth has been portrayed as a ruthless, emotionless, cold hearted (and body as he's a Gargoyle) bad ass. He rose to power when he killed the former clan leader, his own father, and has since ruled his clan knowing that to show any weakness is to die himself. He's distanced himself both physically and emotionally. This story didn't support those concepts other than glimpses of passive/aggressive spurts here and there. Totally totally anti climactic for me. Alveoth, the character, deserved better. I'm going to add that when a series has a rationale logical point that the beginning plot premise resolves (vague set of words but can't figure out how better to say it without giving anything away, so deal) a series should end. Spin off and/or new series if applicable but I respect an author who doesn't string their readers along just to keep a series going. Personally I thought this book would be the end of the series but I'm seeing comments that this isn't the case. I guess time will tell but for me I'm good now that all the main players have achieved their goals and found their mates.

    I'm slightly disappointed in this book. I was so looking forward to reading Aveoths 'wings' book. He came across as dark, mysterious and alpha. Unfortunately reading this book he came across as a little desperate. 'I can't wait to sleep with a female who wants to sleep with me!' (Not knowing the heroine) very sweet (not always a bad thing but slightly weak with it) and beta!! This story was sweet but lacked any real depth fast instant love. I wanted darker, slightly edgier and a bit of grit. I wanted hero to keep that alpha mysterious air about him. Otherwise besides my own disappointments it was a fair read. Heroine was a tad annoying at times but had some funny moments with bad guysCan someone please tell me was he addicted to that bloodline? I don't think I ever worked it out lol!

    5 Aveoth Stars- ❤ Audible Review HERE ❤I found myself smiling and chuckling all throughout this book. I have loved each book in this series but I think this might very well be my favorite. Aveoth is unlike any of the other characters he is witty well so are some of the others we have encountered I just found him to be amusing. Jillian is a spunky character and I really enjoyed her from the very beginning and her nick names are fantastic! HAHA to amusing for words. She made me laugh and smile so much and the two of them together magic!  I am on to the next book I can’t wait! Also Savannah Richards is amazing her performance it fabulous!! *You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

    Not what I had hoped for.I rarely pre-order books but I did for this one because I normally love anything L.D. writes and the VLG series has kept me entertained so far. Unfortunately, in this case, my expectations weren't met and I'm unlikely to re-read this book.I found the heroine slap-worthy. Really. She was of the obnoxious, stupid, judgemental sort that I hate most. She's got zero social skills and if she were a real person, I really wouldn't be surprised if she ran into someone who'd clock her good at some point because she's big on insults if nothing else.Oh, and she's in definite need of some sessions with a therapist. (view spoiler)[There's something to be said about people who delight in watching others be tortured - even if they did it to you first. IMO you're not much better if you take pleasure out of seeing others hurt, no matter the history. And she did... Oh boy, did she. All she'd have needed was a bowl of popcorn and some football cheering accessories. Violence to protect oneself? Alrighty. But just to have others suffer? Not my thing. I also find it highly gross to watch anyone who is already injured. But looking at the process of them getting hurt with glee... Nay. Sure, she had a right to hate the people in question but that... Speaks more of a person in need of therapy.(hide spoiler)]Also, I would have wished for better for Aveoth. I'd come to look forward to his book and the woman for him, so I'm disappointed now. She's a shrew. (view spoiler)[First, she drooled all over him on the first meeting, then let him torture the bad guys in front of her for sport, then got all "Oh no...You just assaulted someone in a way that would lead to 10 years in a federal prison, but that's not what's worrying me - actually that made you even hotter to me- ...your wings are a big no-no! Even though you're all nice and polite to me and obviously have my best interest in mind. I'll just be a shrew and antagonize you for the sheer pleasure of it." Just to do a 180 within 1 (!) day without anything overly life-changing happening to prompt her change of heart. It's just not believable. And if this was for real, I'd slap the crap out of her.(hide spoiler)]She became a bit less obnoxious over the span of the book (or I'd probably have DNF'd this). The end was definitely better than the start.The editing was bad. I'm used to the occasional error in LD's books and got over it because the stories kept me hooked, but in this case I really wondered why she even had an editor, if the one in question didn't do a good job. There were really obvious errors in it, which I think a real editor should pick up. That was just disappointing and lowered the enjoyment of this book for me even more. As it was, I got through the book mainly to be up to date on how the overall story unfolded and am now hoping that the next book will be better again.Poor Aveoth... You deserved so much better. ;___;(Oh, and like always I'm fascinated by goodreads "reviews". Even before the book was even released I saw that people had already up-voted it with 4 and 5 stars. And no, it hadn't been the 8th ANYWHERE on this planet back then yet....Really, guys?! Can we not agree to leave this BS practice elsewhere? LD does NOT give out ARC copies and only her editor and Kele read through them before the release, so people voting for them before the book is even out is just point-scoring. For what purpose?)

    I was so impatiently waiting for Aveoth book from the first moment I meet him. I have to say that he exceeded all my expectations. One of the things why I love Laurann books is that her heroines are kick ass. And may not always literally, but they always are strong, sarcastic, funny and they never let fear to control them or theirs actions. So, since Jill is everything listed above, I adore her. She's made me laugh more then once. And she was a perfect match for Aveoth. And talking about Aveoth. I loved him. I love how he claimed Jill from the first moment he saw her. He didn't cared that her bloodline may cause trouble in his clan. Aveoth just wanted her as his mate, and no one would stand in his way. I can't wait for next book. After some snippets about the life Creed had, I'm so ready for his adventure to happiness. He so need it.

    I have been really excited about a gargoyle book in particular Aveoth's book since book one and his book has been so well worth the wait. I loved this book from beginning to end in fact this is my favorite yet in this series. Aveoth is an amazing hero and person(?) We see and hear all these things about him but in his book we actually see the truth and who Aveoth really is. From the very second I was hooked on this book. Not only is it a great story but it flows really well.Decker is at it again in this book and finds his granddaughter that had been hidden from him and offers her to Aveoth. Wanting his clan back and control Decker thinks this is his ticket.Being Kidnapped Jillian is thrust into a world she didn't know existed. Intrigued by Jillian Aveoth agrees to take her in but won't fall for Declers plan. Neither could have guessed how much meeting each other could change their lives and though Decker is gone he isn't done with his quest for revenge.I loved this book. First lets start with Jillian, oh my gosh she was amazing funny and strong and don't take crap. I actually woke my husband up laughing in this book. I loved her she is a stand out character for this year for me. Aveoth was everything i hoped he would be and oh so much more. Their romance was greta and the story blew me away. We get some extraordinary twists that literally had my jaw dropping and made me love this series more and so excited for more. I wish this book hadn't ended I stayed up till it was done and wanted so much more, not because it was missing anything but because it was so so good. I can't wait for book 8 I am so excited and for this wondering this one can be read on it's own.

    Can I express my joy? Yes, I can 🙌 This book was so good.... and won't go into ny comparison because it would take too much time. I will just say I gave up hope for this series. I don't know what went wrong but this one from the first line was just different and no exhausted. And what did I get? So much more and surprises til the end! Yes, surprises even knowing that Lord was a secret man and certainly scary but it wasn't only him but also his race/animalistic side and clan so many to learn about them. Giving him another side, he wasn't just scary but was so much more. Did I mention fun? Yes, it was fun! Quite bat fun funny.

    I had been waiting patiently for this book since I started reading the series.I knew this would be good. It is different from the others because it dealing with the cold non emotional gargoyles. I loved the strength of Lord Aveoth. He was a great honorable leader that was keeping the Gargoyles at bay even though they had factions within themselves trying to overthrow him.I liked the banter between Jill and Lord Aveoth. They got along great together. Of course like most mates books, they feel in love pretty fast with each other. This has been the best in the series so far. We also learn some very interesting facts about Lord Aveoth and his parentage. I hope in books to come they will explore it more. This book and the las one were the best in the series so far. The others i gave 2-3 stars but books 6 & 7 are definitely 4 - 5 star books. Can't wait to read Creed. I think I might like the Garlycans better than the Vamplycans.

    Double dibs on Aveoth aka MINE, I absolutely adore him...oh and he cooks, that’s where the double dibs came from, because that pushed him into dreamy badass for me *winks*. Loved Jill too, she’s a spitfire. If she had claws, I have no doubt she’d be one of the top predators in this book. She is sarcastic as hell and I appreciated it. She calls him Wings and talks about having his bat babies, so damn funny. She did give Aveoth a little resistance....until she too figured out he is a dreamy badass.Jill is one of Decker’s grand daughters, so he had her kidnapped to give to Aveoth. Aveoth is pissed, but wants to protect her. He actually beats the kidnappers asses, because Jill asked him to....they really are a perfect match. These two just have so much raw chemistry. Two lonely souls that definitely needed each other.Aveoth addressed the clans traitors, which I also loved. We get to find about Aveoth’s past and how crappy his dad was, but I adore is sweet mom. So, he got his dad’s toughness, but his mom’s heart of gold. As with all the books, there is a lot that happens....a couple of things I was so excited about. One of the things had my heart for sure, was so sweet and made me so happy. I love this series and this is my favorite book...don’t forget, double dibs *winks*.

    I love LD. Her imagination never fails to amaze me with her beautiful writing. I've started on this series and ive enjoyed the other books so much but tbh i had so much more expectations for Aveoth. Through out the series, he was portrayed as dark, strong, mysterious yet a broken lonely soul so i was really looking forward to see how his story would unfold but here...hes so...wimpy, desperate and...yeah which was not quite to his character that was portrayed from the other books of this series. And i don't usually have anything against strong heroines, matter of fact i prefer when my heroines can stand up for themselves and can pack a punch. A bonus if they also defy against the lead counter character but Jill just seems straight up b*tchy. I think she was suppose to be portrayed as "im a strong stubborn independant female with a smart mouth and im not easily affect by my emotions" but its not really portrayed that well in the story, she was more of..."im a stuborn brat whos also a blunt axe and will insult/accuse u because I'm ignorant". I also couldn't really see the relationship build up between the two mains, there was so much missing between these two. i just couldnt with this book. D:

    I was so annoyed with Jill attitude throughout this book. Her attitude did not show how strong she is.. but only show how bitch she wasfirst she insited to teach her how to fight other races, when the time Aveoth try to trained her, she refused... many other example to show how annoying she wasI was fan of Laurann dohner's book..and so surprise with this story line, all her other books for examples the new spesies series or the cyborg series never had this kind Heroine,such disappointing book

    Aveoth a man misunderstood.Finally we are given Aveoths story's and I can honestly say it wasn't what I was expecting. Firstly in the past Aveoth had been portrayed by everyone as being cold and uncaring, a Gargoyle who could not only turn too stone but possessed a stone cold heart to match. Rumors that were thought to be true as he had become Lord of his clan after defeating and killing his father. But everything is not as it appears to be and their was a very valid reason for what Aveoth did, why his cold detached demeanor towards the VampLycan people and even his own clan members with only his mother and closest friend knowing who he truly was as a person. He was nothing like what everyone thought of him, the image he portrayed couldn't have been further from the truth. A big man with an equally big heart he was kind, honorable, sweet, honest, brave and starving for love and affection desperately wanting a mate to love him in return and have children/younglings which he so craved. And let's not forget how yummy he was, hot damn was this batman good enough to eat with black hair, tall, muscular, broad and defined with the most amazing blue and silver eyes he was every woman's wet dream. All I could think while reading was that I would have never been able to hold out as long as Jill did, I would have been a wanton puddle at his feet from his very first word uttered with his seductive voice. Jill was a spunky girl with a lot of courage and wicked sense of humor, the things that came out of her mouth and the nicknames she came up with for Aveoth, his friend and the villains was hilarious. She was also starved for affection and had led a hard and troubled life like Aveoth had, in many ways they shared their pasts in common and had similar views on what they wanted their futures to be they were absolutely perfect for each other in every way. My issues with this story and the reason for my 3 stars is that I found the passion, heat, lust, missing from this tale. There was no explosive coming together of two people who just couldn't keep their hands of each other or just couldn't deny their attraction/passion any longer. It was a very bland calmly discussed 'I've decided to stop pushing you away and I want to have sex' yeah um didn't quite do it for me even if the actual scene was hot and Aveoth was packing some serious hardware proportionate to his massive build I still found it lacking. Jill also makes a very demanding point of insisting she doesn't want to get pregnant and to use protection after Aveoth painstakingly explained how the claiming of a mate worked. So he bends to her wishes to make her happy, just so that she can go and change her mind the very next morning, yep you heard correctly. I don't understand why she was such a pain about the subject all through the book to just not care anymore after having sex with him once and all because she liked it when he bit her. Also there was so much explaining about his clan/people, how they came to be there, customs, traditions, his past, different races/species, clan politics, mating/claiming of a mate, on and on it went that I kind of started to loose interest in the story as it felt more like an informative history lesson on the GarLycans than a romance. Also I felt like Aveoth was maybe too nice not that I didn't adore him I just felt like he lacked that possessive alpha male quality, that intensity and passion to claim Jill as his, that 'Mine' factor that just makes me go all weak in the knees. Now all comments aside I still enjoyed the story even if it's not my favorite in the series and look forward to other future releases fingers crossed for Kelzeb, Fray and Chaz.

    4.5 Stars MAJOR SPOILERS THROUGHOUT:I liked this book. It was fast paced and very entertaining. You could tell that Laurann Dohner had been planning this book for a long time. There were little clues from earlier books that all came together to make a giant plot twist for this book that absolutelyshockedme.Aveoth was great. I have been waiting to read his book for a very long time and I wasn't disappointed. I thought he would be scary and cold towards to Jill but it was the opposite. He was very open to mating her and accepted her as his mate very quickly. I really admire Aveoth's strength. I felt really bad listening to him tell Jill about his mother and that situation. I can't imagine having to sneak around to see my mother because it would be considered "weak" for her to spend time with me or show affection. That is truly messed up. I do have to admit that that plot twist (view spoiler)[ Velder being his father.(hide spoiler)] shocked me to my very core. Looking back on it, it makes a lot of since and I must applaud Laurann Dohner for laying her groundwork for that one because she did it very well. My only complaint about Aveoth was that his feelings for Jill did feel a little insta-lovey. I think he fell for her a little too fast and I didn't get as much emotional attachment to their relationship because of that.I liked Jill. She had spunk and a sharp tongue which I always love in a female character. There were a few times that she frustrated me because she wouldn't admit what was right in front of her was the truth. I was shocked that she was the cautious one in her and Aveoth's relationship. She was the cold one that was constantly pushinghimaway. I didn't expect that when I went into it.I really enjoy reading this series and I will read pretty much anything that Laurann Dohner writes. Obviously, this installment was no different and I will be continuing the series.

    Vampire LycanGargoyle May sound strange and nonsensical but this series just gets better and better!!! The story, mystery, treachery, and the depth of love and honor behind Aveoth is my favorite thus far. Downer has me watching for the next VLG book as though it's Christmas wrapped in my kindle!!!She has become one of my top 20 favorite authors of paranormal adventures that include true intrigue, in depth battle scenes, epic love and endearing characters that you want to reach an HEA. Aveoth has spent his life fighting to protect his secrets and unable to trust anyone. Jillian has lived a hard life, on the run with her mother since birth, always afraid when they might have to move again. They will have to overcome their past to be able to find what their future may hold. There are evil plotters, kidnappers, usurper to the throne, and the mating heat which throws all caution to the wind. Jillian is smart mouthed, street smart and quirky. Aveoth is a true Lord with honor being part of the very fiber of his being. Don't even hesitate if you haven't read the other stories in this series, just grab this and growl if anyone tries to interrupt you. Then go back and start at the beginning of the series. Just so darn good!!!

    I hadn't really liked the VLG series. All the clan politics between the Vampires and the Lycans and the gargoyles got annoying after a while. But this book #7, Aveoth, focuses a lot more on the romance. Aveoth sees Jill and wants to mate her. He has all kinds of ideas how to convince her to have him as a mate and he doesn't want to scare her. He actually talks to her and explains things about his life so she'll get to know him better. I definitely felt the romance between them. There is more of a slow build because Aveoth and Jill wait a little bit to have sex which contrasted nicely with the earlier books where it felt like the minute hero and heroine met they were banging a perfect stranger. One issue: Aveoth never flies Jill around in the book there was always some kind of emergency so Aveoth's friends have flown with her in their arms but not Aveoth. I didn't like that. The book reads fine as a stand alone the author tells you everything you need to know.

    Avoeth finally got his story and worth waiting for and such a wonderful and sad twist but explains a lot! Now, I'm so happy 1 he didn't win either of the sisters in the 1st and 2nd book because Jill was the best choice for him as a mate and will keep him forever amused to face the seriousness is within his clan! Boy did those women miss out on a good catch... even if he's alittle too honorable except on their lovemaking 😉Love his friends and can't wait for thier own books too. I was a bit disappointed that it ended abruptly before she could meet her cousins and their mates and know her bloodline had some good family members still alive. Maybe, this will be shown in future books since this one ended with that intention...time will tell. Again, can't wait😄
