Review for Nightwalker by Jacquelyn Frank - 5 bees knees!
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS.COM -
Kamen is a Bodywalker, an ancient soul reborn in one human host after another. He’s also a prisoner of his own kind: for it was Kamen who released Apep, the deadly god who threatens the existence of their world. To atone for this grievous error, Kamen accepts an urgent mission: to convince the other nations of the Nightwalkers to set aside their centuries-old conflicts and band together. If he fails, all will be lost. And no tribe presents a greater challenge than the Wraiths, the spectral beings who are feared and despised for their lethal deathtouch. Kamen makes first contact with a stunning, ghostly pale beauty named Geneviève. Part Wraith and part human, scorned as a half-breed, Viève shares the hunger for redemption—and for connection. Her scintillating touch holds the kiss of death, and yet it makes Kamen feel more alive than ever. Soon his lips are pressed against hers, sending Viève into fits of desire and forging a bond that breaches the divide between them. Now they must unite all the Nightwalkers, from Vampire and Shadowdweller to Djynns, and fast—for Apep is ready for war. MY REVIEW -
I absolutely love this series! I love how this book has characters from this series, and characters from other series by Frank; it's so great to see how other couples are doing, and how they all come together to combat evil. Luckily I have read all the books from the other series, and in this series, so I got the full impact of this book, and I do think it's a really good idea for a reader to read all the other books because it helps to have the whole back story of this world and its characters. This book does do a good job of letting the reader know about some of the other characters stories though, but this book is a conclusion book; a final battle book, so it's best to read all the books I feel. I love all the different types of supernaturals represented in this book, as well as other books by Frank, and Frank's writing is really excellent, and I was totally intrigued through the whole book. Each of the characters have such unique powers, and it's really cool when they get put to use. I liked the addition of Kamen and Vieve's story, and it was great to see Kamen truly come to understand the meaning of redemption and forgiveness, and Vieve is a sweetheart, who deserves happiness, and to find a place where she belongs, and with people who will appreciate her for who she is. This is a truly wonderful book, and I love Frank's writing, and I am definitely looking forward to reading more from her.
