The nameless and beautiful narrator of The Gargoyle is driving along a dark road when he is dazzled by what seems to be a flight of arrows. He crashes into a ravine and wakes up in a burn ward, undergoing the tortures of the damned. He is now a monster. His life is over.

But it is only beginning: one day, Marianne Engel, a bewitching sculptress of gargoyles, walks into his room and reveals that they were once lovers in medieval Germsny. In her telling, he was a badly burned mercenary and she, a nun and a scribe, nursed him back to health in the famed monastery of Engelthal. As she spins her tale, Scheherazade-fashion, and relates equally mesmerizing stories of deathless love in Japan, Iceland, Italy and England, he finds himself drawn back to life - and, finally, to love.
