The Nightwalkers- Book 2
They're called the Nightwalkers—proud, ancient beings
who live in the shadows, existing just beyond the human
world. But there are also dangerous humans who hunt
them—necromancers who use the blackest magic to
manipulate them. And for a Demon named Gideon, the
battle against these evil forces will soon be all too
HAS A HEALER, HE KNOWS HER BODY.
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 Magdelegna,
the Demon King's sister, in a wild embrace.
orrified 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
Magdelegna nearly their victim—Gideon must face another
truth. He and the beautiful, stubborn Magdelegna 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.
Every night holds secrets.
"Jacquelyn Frank's NIGHTWALKER series depicts
an engrossing alternate world, drawn in prose that
is lush and lyrical."
In Frank 's seductively
crafted universe (introduced in last year's Jacob:
The Nightwalkers), demons aren't the clawed
horrors of myth (unless they're possessed by the
book's villainous necromancers); they're handsome,
proud, sensuous and decidedly ambivalent about the
world of mortals. Demons have a thousands-year-old
rule forbidding them from coupling with humans,
who aren't made to survive sex with the
charismatic Nightwalkers; male protagonist Gideon,
an ancient healer demon (who, naturally, doesn't
look a day over 35), has spent eight years in
self-imposed exile after attempting to break that
law. Recently returned, guilt-wracked Gideon is
finally drawn to the true object of his desire:
the even-more-forbidden Magdelegna, young sister
of hot-tempered demon king Noah. Though
Magdelegna's kin raise hell over the May-December
romance (at 250 years old, Magdelegna is barely an
adult), the pair's breathtaking sex...

I found this book quite
enjoyable. Frank has created an interesting world
of demons, necromancers and magic. I’m not sure
that I totally understand the nuances behind the
demon/vampire/lycanthrope way of life. However, I
am willing to bet that reading the rest of the
books in the series would help make things a bit
Overall, I thought that Gideon and Magdelegna
made a great couple. I loved the tension between
them at the beginning of the novel - and the way
that they were once they gave into their feelings
for each other. I am definitely looking forward to
reading more about the nightwalkers. I am putting
the rest of Frank’s books on my to be read
