Publisher's Summary

As a healer, he knows her body. But it's her heart he wants. For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons---and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdalena, the Demon King's sister, in a wild embrace. Horrified by his lack of control, he left her wanting and furious---and then exiled himself for the better part of a decade. Now, with necromancers threatening his people---and Magdalena nearly their victim---Gideon must face another truth. He and the beautiful, stubborn Magdalena are destined to be together, to share a love as deep and old as time itself. But first he needs to regain her trust. Then he'll have to save her life.

    "It's all about the Narration"

    The narration of this series is what pulls me into the books, the stories may be over the top but listening to Xe Sands bring these characters to life with the perfect accents and character development equals pure listening enjoyment.

    "Steamy romance with Demons!"

    I really enjoyed this 2nd story of the Nightwalker Series. Jacquelyn Frank continues with the world of she created of Demons and other Nightwalkers. In this story we get a little bit more of vampires and lycanthropes.

    I enjoyed the romance between the demons Gideon and Magdelegna. I wasn’t sure if they would overcome themselves and allow love to blossom. Gideon being the oldest demon around is referred to as the Ancient. Magdelegna is only 250 years old, so she is considered very young. A child as far as Gideon is concerned and it will take a lot of work for him to finally start thinking of her any other way … regardless of what he feels. Magdelegna believes that Gideon is unfeeling, uncaring, and too detached to have real feelings about her.

    I enjoyed that Jacquelyn Frank did not just decide that Gideon and Madgelegna should fall in love and throw them in bed together. Romance is something that is best savored over time.

    Besides Gideon and Magdelegna trying to step carefully around each other, someone has brutally attacked Bella. This leads Gideon to speak with the vampire Prince Damien and the lycanthrope Queen Siena.

    I enjoyed learning about vampires and the lycanthropes. I can’t wait to read more about them and their abilities! I have to wonder if Prince Damien and Queen Siena will find love amongst the Demons.

    Although I didn’t enjoy this as much as the first, it was still a really good story. I enjoyed Xe Sands narration once again. Her voice is very pleasing and really draws you into the emotion of the moment.

    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.

    "Still loving this series!"

    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.

    "Gideon, such a romantic"

    I love Lana, but Gideon is just soooo in control that it makes me a little angry. Finally this book brings the less controlled Gideon. I have to say though, he is nothing like Jacob. Gideon keeps his imprinting under control. I guess being an Ancient has something to do with that. Another part of the prophecy is being fulfilled... I don't understand though why it hasn't driven him mad, because he and Lana have been imprinting sense Jacob had to punish him. Lana got stronger, but Gideon, should he be mad by now. Whatever, still great book. Great listen. This book just fell right in step. I think Jacob is way way better, but this book is more of a character/world of nightwalkers builder. I think the only major plot point revolves around Beth and Mary, the demons that betray the other demons. However, this is a must if you are gonna invest into the Nightwalker series. Still, worth a credit. Good Read/Listen... promise!!!

    What did you love best about Gideon?

    As AWESOME to listen to as Book 1 "Jacob"


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    WOW, they were all so GREAT but I guess my favorite like in Book 1 was "Jacob and Bella", the fire between them ....I FANTIZED it was me with Jacob...LOL


    What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?

    AS I said in my review of "Jacob" she was AWESOME and drew you into to the story/book!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes ABSOLUTELY just like BOOK 1 "Jacob", but unfortunately sleep prevailed...lol


    Any additional comments?

    LOOKING FORWARD TO BOOK 3 IF THERE IS ONE...LOVE THEM BOTH!

    "Xe Sands in a class of her own!!!"
    If you could sum up Gideon in three words, what would they be?

    My favorite kind of male character. Loner lacking social skills; finds love!


    What other book might you compare Gideon to and why?

    He reminds me a lot Gregory from Christine Feehan's Dark Magic.


    Have you listened to any of Xe Sands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is awesome. I have listened to hundreds of audio books, and she is the best narrator hands down!!! Usually a narrator is good with one gender or type of voice, but she is totally multitalented. She performs the male voices as well as she does the female voices. You can even determine which character is talking before a name is mentioned because she differentiates the voices in a way that allows you to identify the character. The best thing is the characters' voices remain the same throughout the series. Amazing!

    Sexy Medic Demon


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gideon?

    At the end when Gideon hears what he THINKS is a clock ticking only to find out it is something far more special.


    Have you listened to any of Xe Sands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I listened to Jacob. She was superb in both.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Loved it start to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    Great 2nd installment in the Nightwalkers series. Continues the story started in Jacob.

    "I'm addicted to the nightwalkers"

    I am devouring this series, it's just that good. Its like everyone of these characters experiences an epic love that is so beautifully told through superb narration. I have not found myself willing to purchase books outright, I usually wait for a sale or use a credit, but I've been unable to curb my appetite for this series. I love all the characters so far and anticipate seeing how each one unfolds.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gideon to be better than the print version?

    Audio edition is great; but I'm sure I would have enjoyed the printed version too because the story was so good.


    What other book might you compare Gideon to and why?

    All the Nightwalker Series are comparably excellent to listen to.


    Which character – as performed by Xe Sands – was your favorite?

    Gideon!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I wanted to listen to it in all one sitting; however, I would have then been disappointed that it was too short.


    Any additional comments?

    Purchase the Nightwalker series.

    Love to read and get lost in my books! I started listening to audio books about a year ago (as I work-out) and love it- keeps me exercising. I then usually buy the good ones and read them all over again.
