Wow. Suspenseful & Hot.
This was a great continuation of the first book (Jacob).
I was worried that Jacob and Bella's story would be left behind when moving from the
first book to the next. I am pleasantly surprised at how J. Frank was able to focus
on the personal story of Gideon while keeping with the plots, themes, and members from Jacob and surrounding the Demon Kingdom. It was a seamless continuation of suspenseful events including action, magic, sci-fi etc. which center around Demons, Vamps etc. while at the same time focusing on Gideon and his love.
Can't wait to get started on the 3rd.
If you are like me, and want more of storyline than just sex...this series is for you- This series really combines all elements to a Sci-Fi novel (storyline surrounding the world of Demons, Vamps, warewolves) while giving you the love and passion that make you love the characters. J.Frank teases you with very emotional, deep and passionate scenes that may not necessarily end up with just SEX. Kisses and touches in this series can make the reader just as (AND MORE) hot as the main ACT of sex.
And, just as with Jacob, Xe's narration is flawless.
Say something about yourself!
This story was so great. The chemistry between the two main characters was represented so well it literally gave me goose bumps at times. The world is great and I love learning more about it with each book. I honestly have a hard time turning the book off so that I can have an actual life. I'm looking forward to getting the next one. Unfortunately I have to read some of the other books in my library or they won't get read till I'm through this series.
I have really enjoyed these books, as they are a different take on the whole demon, wereanimal, and vampire worlds. This book is sexy and has a strong story-line to go along with it. The main women in the books are strong characters in their own rights, but are made more complete by their bond with the male counter-parts.
Gideon is such a dry character, but made lovable by his fun-loving new mate. Her resistance to him and her final acquiescence is so endearing you want to jump right to the next book.
Yes. The storyline was fantastic and I loved every character and thir personalities. I found myself lost in every moment of the book and paying particular attention to certain character which are featured in the other books. The fantasy in this book was almost real to me and I must say Ms Frank has quite the imagination.
It was hard to choose just one favorite character cause I had a few: Gideon, Magdalena and Noah.
Gideon because of he is so reserve yet compassionate. His people respects him because of his age and knowledge, yet they fear him. He is like any other person, needing to love and be loved. I never would have thought his character to be so vulnerable towards a woman, yet I liked it. He and Magdalena made the perfect couple and I also found myself taken a liking to her as well. Magdalena herself is a proud and strong woman and deserving of any man. I could not see her character being with anyone else other than Gideon.
Noah as leading of his clan is strong and fair in all his judgements, always putting his people first. His love for his family is remarkable but yet he is alone. I can't wait to read his story to find out more about him and the woman he falls in love with.
Xe Sands is by far my favorite narrator. I wish she narrated all the books I read. The woman is a genius when it comes to portraying her characters. Each and everyone had a distinct voice and personality, it was like watching a movie. And the ways she switches between character is amazing. I swear the woman could have a split personality.
I was so taken by this woman's talent that I researched her biography to learn more about her.
My most touching moment was when Gideon and Magdalena finally realized they imprinted on each other and all the moment leading up to them giving into their fears and desires.
A must buy. Definitely worth the money. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I'm still pleased with series. Sometimes the others don't meet expectations but I will get book 3 based on 1 & 2. I'm anxious to experience the stories of the demons, vampires and lycenthorpes that I get to know in each book. I think if you enjoy paranormal romances you'll enjoy this series.

ViA AuDiBLe, HoWEVeR, NoT My FiRsT THROuGh THiS BooK! ONCe As A LiBRaRy BooK, THEN eBooK Form & THEN AuDiO BooK. . .Long spans of time between Readings but YeS it is worth rereading/Hearing the book! ALL in this series will be bought eventually, in this form! Already own all ebooks for this series and her others! Very few that I didn't enjoy! This author has an imagination beyond words! The performance by readers as usual is awesome, not my first time hearing her!
Love historical and paranormal romances with smart, imperfect people who against the odds find love when they are not looking for it.
Never too ancient to learn to love and never too powerful to not need others. Wonderful story of love, fear, commitment, hate and revenge. Passionate romance and fierce battles; this book has it all. Again X.Sands is does excellent narration. Couldn't put it down. Here is the second book in the Nightwalker series, loved the old characters and introduced to some interesting new ones!
Say something about yourself!
Two souls trying to stay apart, no longer able to...etc.
It was a decent story, but I find fault with the idea that if the guy is over 1000 and the girl is under 300 and this bond is suppose to be all consuming and he's been around her since her birth...you see where I am going with this? Definite second book blues.
yes Jacqueline Frank books are worth reading.
It took a while to get caught up to the new story line and players yet very good
