St. Patrick's Gargoyle
Dublin is not the city it once was. Tourists crowd the ancient buildings and swarm the cobblestone streets. Hooligans steal artifacts from newly remodeled cathedrals. In these changing, troubled times, history is a mere curiosity; nostalgia, a cheap commodity. But there are still those who long for what used to be. They perch in dark alcoves high above the bustling streets. They watch. They listen. And they wait.
Everything is different. As Padraig keeps watch over St. Patrick's Cathedral, he remembers what Dublin was like before the tourists descended, before the renovations started, before he was a gargoyle. Back in the days of the Old Testament, he was an avenging angel, righteous and ruthless, fierce and feared. Now he guards a church, and tries to forget.
Nothing is sacred. One cold December night, vandals break into St. Patrick's. Paddy melts into the darkness in search of revenge—and with the help of an elderly man named Francis Templeton, he finds it. But in his moment of triumph, Paddy makes one terrible mistake. And as the snow falls and the millennium draws to a close, the gargoyles of Dublin come together to face an evil as ancient and elusive as time itself. An evil that threatens all they hold dear...
