Urban Fantasy author Anton Strout is pleased to announce the third and final installment of his Spellmason Chronicles, INCARNATE, coming to readers’ bookshelves and e-readers on September 30th from Penguin/Ace Books. Like the two previous books in the series, ALCHEMYSTIC and STONECAST, the book will focus on spellmason Alexandra Belarus, who has the ability to give stone life-like qualities, and Stanis, the centuries-old gargoyle who has sworn to protect her. At the end of STONECAST, readers were left at a point of high tension with lots of questions still unanswered. INCARNATE promises to deliver answers by way of a fast-paced adventure with all the action and snarky humor Strout’s fans have grown to love.

The Spellmason Chronicles #3
by Anton Strout



When Alexandra Belarus discovered her family’s secret ability to breathe life into stone, she uncovered an entire world of magic hidden within New York City—a world she has accidentally thrown into chaos. A spell gone awry has set thousands of gargoyles loose upon Manhattan, and it’s up to Lexi and her faithful protector, Stanis, to put things right.

But the stress of saving the city is casting a pall over Lexi and Stanis’s relationship, driving them to work separately to solve the problem. As Stanis struggles to unite the gargoyle population, Lexi forges unlikely alliances with witches, alchemists and New York’s Finest to quell an unsettling uprising led by an ancient and deadly foe long thought vanquished.

To save her city, Lexi must wield more power than ever before with the added hope of recovering a mysterious artifact that could change her world—and bring her closer to Stanis than she ever thought possible…

  1. I didn’t realize that this series was only going to be a trilogy. I read the first book and it was ok, but I never picked-up STONECAST. Now I kinda want to though, knowing that there’s only one more to go. Hmm… What to do. Oh, who am I kidding? I’m off to Amazon… LOL

    congrats to Anton on the new release! I have book 1 and I’m very excited to get started 🙂 I like gargoyles b/c they are one of the supernatural creatures that still has such an aura of mystery. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Gargoyles are very magical. I love that they are so filled with magic and have the ability to shift from their stone shapes into human or even other shapes at times. They are fascinating creatures.

  4. This really sounds good! I need to add this to my TBR (first got to run to audible…lol) The last couple male authors I’ve read/listned have really delivered for me in this genre.
    I don’t think I’ve ever read a book about Gargoyles, they were mentioned but never the focus.
    Thanks girl 🙂

    I don’t think I’ve read any books where gargoyles are the main focus. But the last Kim Harrison Hollows book I read (99% sure it was Ever After) focused a little more on gargoyles and I loved it. Oh, and my favorite paranormal is the fae.

      Oops, I somehow misread the second part of the question. I like gargoyles because it seems like they are always smart/observant, and I can appreciate that. They spend a lot of time just observing and absorbing knowledge.

    I have never read any books about gargoyles but I would love to. This series sounds really good and I love anything paranormal. Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. Theresa

    I love this series as well and Anton’s Simon Canderous series. I think I like gargoyles because they aren’t an overworked, overused creature.
    Thanks for the contest!

  8. Debi Murray

    I love this series and can’t wait to read this book, although I am sad it is a trilogy. I would like more, please.

  9. I absolutely adore the Spellmason Chronicles! The idea for a book series centered around gargoyles was something that I had never seen done before, so I was all over it. Anton, as usualy didn’t disappoint to deliver. I look forward to, what’s sure to be an amazing final book to finish out the trilogy.
