BlurbNew York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank continues her scorching and sensual new series set in the world of the Nightwalkers, where alluring entities known as Bodywalkers are the vanguards against the raging forces of darkness.
As a mercenary, Leo Alvarez has signed on for a lot—but he never signed on for his best friend becoming host to the soul of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. Jackson is now inhabited by a Bodywalker, and Leo is forced to grapple with a realm of supernatural beings far more dangerous than anything he’s ever encountered.
But when Jackson is wounded by an attack from a demon god, Leo must team up with another supernatural creature—a Night Angel—to save his friend from utter destruction. With skin as black as midnight, hair as white as snow, and a body of pure perfection, the Night Angel arouses a burning desire in Leo, even as he refuses to be intimidated by her power—or the power of those who would destroy his friend. An unusual alliance is forged, electrified by sexual temptation, and together the two must unite their strengths to bring down a supreme evil.
ReviewI think what I love most about Jacquelyn Frank's novels is that you can pick any one of them up, it doesn't matter where in the series it is, and completely fall in-love with the world and characters. This was most certainly no exception. Leo was great. I loved this character. His hard outer shell that seemed unbreakable. Then the Night Angel. Who slowly chipped away at the exterior. And let us not forget the genie who made it all possible.
Every time I pick up another night walker or day walker book I just get completely sucked into the reading and I wish more authors had worlds so captivating as this one. The mix of characters and character types (Genies angels etc...) make it interesting and never dull.
The only thing I wish was that we didn't have to wait months for the next installment. And if that's the worst thing about a book then I'm completely okay with that.
This was a five star book, hands down, because an action packed, never dull and totally captivating story deserves nothing less.
