In The Gargoyle Overhead, Garoth and Ambergine are separated and trying to find each other once again.  This sequel to The Gargoyle in my Backyard tells readers about Garoth’s previous life.
Set in Toronto, there are many references to landmarks that local readers enjoy identifying. Not much character development, particularly around The Collector and why he is so mean and selfish. The idea that Garoth is scared of him and doesn’t think he can escape him lends to the idea of an abusive relationship but doesn’t go much farther. There is closure when the two gargoyles escape, but the Collector doesn’t fall to his death which would happen in most young adult books (and movies). The epilogue is sweet to show that Katherine does finally meet her two little friends once again.
