Mismatch (Omega Beginnings short story) by Lizzy Ford

Mismatch hasn’t always been a statue standing guard over the Temple of Artemis. Once upon a time, thousands of years ago, he was a man who led a privileged life. Like the Greek monarchs before him, he fell victim to the family curse: he was turned to stone and forced to keep watch over the temple of a Greek god or goddess. 

Out of the blue, five-year-old Alessandra breaks the spell. Mismatch seeks out the shy, young crown princess next in line to the family curse and warns her about her fate in the hopes of saving her from the living death. 

He returns when Alessandra is in danger, but the powers behind those seeking her are prepared for anything.

Even the grotesque prince.

My Review:

This books tells you more about Mismatch the gargoyle that Alessandra wakes up in the first short story.   Mismatch is learning to "live" again after being a gargoyle for so long but doing so he also must protect Alessandra.  Mismatch thinks that the only way he can do this is by looking for Phoibe, royal heir to the bloodline (thing is Phoibe is only 6 years old).

Like the first story, this one is very captivating.  I enjoyed the addition of Phoibe and learning more about Mismatch...looking forward to the next one!
