Some feelings you just can't fight.
He is known as the Warrior Captain - a master of every weapon, a fierce soldier sworn to protect his kind. Powerful, relentless, merciless, Elijah has always won every battle he's ever taken on - until now. Ambushed by necromancers, he is left for dead only to be discovered by the woman who could very well deliver the final blow: Siena, the Lycanthrope Queen.
With three centuries of warring, little more than a decade of uneasy peace has existed between the Lycanthropes and Elijah's people. Now, after a lifetime of suspicion, the warrior in Elijah is consumed with a different battle - winning Siena's heart by giving her pleasure beyond all boundaries. What starts as attraction and arousal soon burns into a passion with consequences that will echo through the ages for both their people. And as would-be enemies become inseparable lovers, another threat approaches, one with the power to destroy them all.
Spend some more time with the Nightwalkers - if you dare.

"Both leads are strong, and Frank grants her hero a refreshing measure of insight into the relationship. What works even better is the camaraderie that develops between the Nightwalker tribes, as Frank plunges deeper into her dark world." (Publishers Weekly)
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
Elijah did not disappoint me. The quality of the writing was right in line with all the other "named" books in this series. Jacquelyn Frank continued her fantastic story telling. I would read all these books in order because the previous characters are mentioned in the books that follow. The characters are very distinguishable and their powers are each different. Love finding out what each of their powers does. You really get to know the characters. They leave such an impression it is not hard to remember them in the following stories. Wish these would go on forever. This review written by Lynn.
Love historical and paranormal romances with smart, imperfect people who against the odds find love when they are not looking for it.
Frank spent a lot of time reviewing the previous stories, that got tiring after a bit. The story (inbetween the reviews) is strong and entertaining. New characters to love and to fear. Sands is just the best of narrators! Worth the credit and this book is important to the series.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
After Gideon's book I wasn't sure I was going to continue on with this series, it was so boring. But I wanted to read Elijah's story, especially since it has lycanthropes (my favorites) in it. Yes this book is better, more in the line of Jacob. So if you liked the first book you will enjoy this one too. I really liked the hair concept, of how it is a living part of a lycanthrope, kinda like a medusa. Overall I did enjoy this book. Although I'm not in a hurry to read the next, so I just might wait for a sale. As I have stated before Xe Sands is not my favorite narrator. It not her voice but her speed of reading that really gets me. If she would speed up just a bit, maybe she wouldn't put me to sleep. I might be in the minority here, but she is not my favorite narrator.
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
3rd in the series, Elijah may actually be better than the first two (Jacob & Damien). The daemon warrior captain, Elijah, is mortally wounded and saved by the lycanthrope Queen, Siena. The first half of the book revolves around Siena's efforts to nurse Elijah back to health while trying to ignore the escalating romantic chemistry. Loved it, loved it! The rest of the book deals with how they wrestle with the inevitability of their imprinting... (like soul mates for the paranormal).
As the Nightwalker series continues, Frank seems to perfect her skill at describing the romantic chemistry between characters. With each book, the characters and situations get better and better. Hard to decide on a favorite. Sands' interpretation is well done and quite consistent. Unfortunately, I'm on the final book, Adam... so sad! If you like paranormal romance, this is one series you ought NOT miss!
The chemistry between these two characters were hot and heavy especially in the cave scene. It's a must listen!
Although this series is very much like a harlequin-type romance, I have to confess that I absolutely love them. I've listened to 3 so far and find that they draw me in from the get go. Maybe it's the narrator, she is wonderful. Her ability to take on the various accents and personalities of the characters is simply amazing. It is light fare and an entertaining story of demons, druids and other creatures of the night but definitely not horror.
Must know and read the previous two Jacob and Gideon. I will make it through the entire series.
I like the female narrarators - and she is as good as I have listened to.
Say something about yourself!
can these books get any better, elijah had his hand full with that cat,lol. well off to the next.
