Beginning of a trilogy with a cliff hanger

When Gargoyles Rise (Shades and Shadows Series) (Volume 1) - Ashley Rae Harris

This story intrigued me with the mix of characters and their hierarchy. There is a cliff hanger for an ending, which I was not prepared for. Despite expectations, Rose wants to figure out her own life and move about on her own. She has a strength and it grows as the story moves along. I am curious as to where the story goes from here and to find out who she ends up with.

I received a copy of this book as a prize, and this is my unsolicited review.
