Hunted by magic, beset by evil, the Nightwalkers face their darkest hour yet. And when the unthinkable happens, only one legendary male has the power, the will, to save them: Adam. . .
For 400 Years He Was Lost To Her, But He Is Hers Tonight. . .
From their first tantalizing touch, Jasmine knows he is different. What other lover could unlock her tight control, flood vampire senses jaded by a lifetime of decadent self indulgence? Centuries ago, when he disappeared without a trace, she had given up hope of ever fulfilling the promise of incomparable passion. But here he is, against the very laws of nature, ready to bring down their most vicious enemy, ready to bring her blood to the boiling point. . .if she will only let him.
Fans of the Nightwalker series pay attention! Author Jacquelyn Frank has listened to our plea’s, bribery and outright groveling of continuing the series with Adam. Let me tell you that the author did not disappoint the readers with this new book!
While this wasn’t my favorite book in the series — mainly because I am a sucker for Noah — it still had the magic the readers come to expect from the Nightwalker world. Adam is the oldest brother to Jacob and Kane. Long ago, Adam disappeared from not only his home and time, but from his job as Enforcer for the Demon world. Jacob searched for him but found no trace of him. When Adam mysteriously shows up centuries later, everyone is surprised to see him including Jacob.
I will tell you that I heard the first chapter of this book had been leaked. (boo to who did that!) If you somehow read that first chapter — again boo to all of you — you were hit with a big surprise. What you don’t know is how it relates to the rest of the story. You must have faith in your author readers! Jacob’s daughter has a special talent and it plays a key role in everything.
The one thing I didn’t like about this book was the time jumping within the first half of the book. I started to get a headache from trying to keep track of the different times we were reading about, but eventually everything does come together and make sense. Before you even attempt to ask me, yes the evil Ruth is back and she is back with a vengeance in this installment. The way they handle her and wrap up this book was perfect. I couldn’t think of a better revenge towards Ruth than what the author gives us.
If you are a fan of the Nightwalker series and have been waiting not so patiently for this book to arrive, trust me in saying that you shouldn’t be too disappointed in this book. You will see previous characters play major roles in this story and familiar faces from other spin-offs of the story. I loved how the characters intertwined into one book. This just goes to show how readers can influence their authors in getting what we want! Thank you Jacquelyn Frank for listening to your readers!
Very Good! I would recommend this book! 4 STARS
