The Book

The Book That Drags You Deeper Into the Realm of Gargoyles

From the multiple award-winning teen author Brandon King comes the first volume of his YA series inspired by the classic works of Tolkien, and the spirit of Riordan, Sanderson, Locke, Carr and Myers. Perfect for teens and young adult readers who yearn for contemporary epic fantasy adventures that remind them of Narnia and Middle Earth.

Has the Gargoyle Renegade Really Given Up Hunting Danielle…Or Just Changed Shape?

A year older and cleverer, Danielle mistrusts the growing sense of dread that haunts her. With all she suffered in the chamber of the gargoyle’s horrific temple, her nerves are shot. She knows nothing yet of the hybrid gargoyle, spawned for the sole purpose of her destruction. She knows nothing of what hunts her friends…and they know nothing of her inner conflicts.

But soon they are all thrust back together in a relentless series of hunting-or-being-hunted by an unholy foe, a mutant possessing horrifying powers and schemes. Or is there more than one?

All His Wrath is a fast-paced story layered with complex twists and revelations. The adventures of Danielle and her friends take them deeper into the fantastical gargoyle kingdom than they would ever have chosen to go.

All His Wrath is the 2nd volume in The Gargoyle Chronicles series. It blends together Norse, YA, and NA genres.

If I would have had more than 15 minutes to read each night, I would have read it all in one sitting. So many interesting characters. Great idea for an appendix! Be sure to look at the appendix for the Gargoyle names as you are reading – that would have been helpful for me to keep the names straight. Plot was really good.

What’s Inside


Hard to put down


A hybrid bad guy


Snappy dialogue


More characters


New places


MANY gargoyles 😮

Chapter 17:


~an excerpt

Hunger woke Paign. Ravenous hunger. He was lying face down in a darkened room and his stomach growled. What time is it?

He sat up, suddenly. Taking in his surroundings, his jaw dropped open. Paign glanced quickly at his bed, lifted his hands as if they were on a hot burner, and jumped off, twisting around to stare at the bed. It was made of fine, clean cloth and blankets woven from a material he’d never seen before. Rather than straw piled on a wooden slat bed like he was used to, this bed appeared to be made of a huge rectangular pillow, stacked upon a second rectangle. Sliding out of bed, he dropped to his knees, laid his hands on the floor and looked under the bed. He gasped to see interlacing bands of metal and wire supporting the rectangles. What is this place? Where am I?

Paign glanced quickly down at his hands and stared at the floor he kneeled on. Running both palms back and forth, he marveled at the texture. This little room didn’t have a dirt floor, but something shiny and patterned. He’d seen pictures of the interior walls of the Royal Palace, and this reminded him of the pattern.

Rolling off his knees and onto his bottom, he spun around on the slippery floor and surveyed the room. A rough-hewn wooden table stood in the opposite corner. That looks right, at least! he mused. A single, high-backed wooden stool stood beside the table, with a brightly colored woven blanket draped over it. While the blanket looked to be made from spun wool, the brilliant colors were in a pattern he’d never seen before. A large candle rested in the middle of the table, flickering gently, with what looked like a tin platter underneath. Grotesque shapes, made up of spent candle wax, littered the platter. The room wasn’t hot, but neither was it cold, so Paign wondered where the heat source was. Nearby, I guess. Probably just on the other side of the door, he thought, imagining a cast-iron wood stove or fireplace.

“Well, either I’m dead and ended up in a rich man’s home, or this is heaven. At least I’m not with that ghastly Rance-Dahl anymore!” Muttering only to himself, he was still comforted to hear his voice and smiled at his joke.

A Great Read!

What a fun and exciting fantasy read. I loved the characters. This book had me thinking! I can’t wait to see where the author takes us in the next book! I am a fan!



I have always enjoyed reading Y.A. novels but this is one I would recommend to anyone and everyone who loves adventure and fantasy. This book is full of action and twists. It was an engaging and fast paced wonder.

I loved the way that Brandon melds a terrific story line with full, round characters and life lessons. This book covered everything from friendship to love and the true meanings of the words.

A Piece of Home

I was reminded of some of my favorite fiction stories as a kid. A young girl, through very ordinary means, stumbles across a world and a mystery of cosmic proportions. A quest begins, and it’s a battle between good and evil that spans both distance and time.

If you like John White (The Tower of Geburah series), Madeleine L’Engle (A Wrinkle in Time), or C.S. Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia), you’ll find yourself right at home in this series.

This book includes great characters, some good themes, and an epic climax. I’m looking forward to reading more.

Exciting New Read for Teens!

This story weaves fantasy, history, and life lessons into an enjoyable narrative. As a reader, it was quite exciting to peer into the realm of gargoyles and imagine their purpose and lives. Brandon King takes a fresh look at these fantastical characters and presents us with an original perspective that causes us to reflect on our own perceptions of those who are different and what true friendship really is.

~Lori Knutson

Great Young Adult Read

Imagine being swept away from your ordinary life to a world where mythical creatures guard against evil and time and space are transcended. That’s what awaits the reader of this novel. An intriguing plot provides plenty of twists and turns as well as many edge-of-your-seat moments. This adventure, with its focus on family, hope, and courage, appeals to young and old alike. If you enjoyed The Chronicles of Narnia, you’ll love The Quest for the Temple Key.


Good Read

Every chapter ended with me salivating and wanting to know more. Read it in less then a week!!!! The next one comes out soon too.

Diabolically Simple Yet Intricate Tale

The second book in this series finds Brandon King hitting his stride, and boy, is it a long stride. The interweaving tale that is continued from the first book ratchets up the suspense and intrigue to an intense level. It makes this tale a page turner that I couldn’t put down. And trying to guess who did what and how was as nerve-wracking as if I’d seen a real gargoyle. Many times, I called out, “You’ve got to be kidding me!” Then returned greedily to read what happened next.

While the ending was satisfying, it left me growling like Kimar for the third in this series.
With a final, “You have GOT to be kidding me!” as I read the last sentence, I closed this wonderful book.

~Renee Settle

Great Fantasy Story

In this story there are many intoxicating characters that I could relate too and grew fond of. In the world of good and bad, gargoyles and humans vs gargoyles, it is kept interesting with many cliff hangers. Brandon King has created a solid plot line that follows through in every chapter and that made it easy to follow along. With elaborate twist and turns that I didn’t see coming kept me on the edge of my seat. Along with everything else, the descriptions teleported me into the story along with the characters. This is a great book to read at any age.

~Savanna C. (7th grade fantasy lover)

Brandon King Has Done It Again!

Another brilliant book from Brandon King! 🙂 I loved this book as much as the first. It’s super creative and full of adventure. The characters are very relatable and the plot leaves you begging for more. I will recommend this book every day, even to my 25 and older friends 😉

~Carson Wrublik

A Gargoyle Good Read!

My 12 year old son recently read this book and here’s what he had to say about it…”I liked the concept of the gargoyle characters, even though I do not normally read fantasy books. I liked that some of the gargoyles were protectors. The book was very good!” (The book kept my sons interest and he was so excited to read it. He read it at home on the sofa instead of watching TV, he read it in the car instead of other books he could have chosen to read and he read it before going to bed each night. A captivating book.)


Transports the Reader

Brandon King’s latest teen novel rushes his characters into a new arena where they continue to grow up in front of the reader’s eyes. With each turn of the page, readers are left questioning who to trust and worried about just what twists and turns the story will take next. For teen readers and gargoyle fans alike this is a fast-paced, fun read that transports the reader to both another time and a world where a whole new realm of possibilities exists.

~Lori Knutson
