Review: Nightwalker by Jacquelyn Frank

Book: Nightwalker by Jacquelyn Frank

From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes the final chapter in the Nightwalkers saga! As the momentous showdown with a powerful demon unfolds, a passionate encounter breaks the ultimate taboo. 
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 THOUGHTS: What a beautiful cover. I find Jacquelyn Frank to be a wonderful story teller and enjoyed her story arc for the series. Such fantastic descriptions! I have greatly enjoyed the others in the series, and this was nice to finally see the dramatic grand finale. The first two chapters had a lot of info dumping, which made for some rough going. But once through that the story flew. Kamen and Gevieve are one hot couple. It was also great to see many of the characters from previous books again.  ]

I’m not sure this would make a great novel as a stand alone. Reading the previous in the series really helped fill in the gaps. So, I do not recommend this as an entry into the Nightwalker series, but it’s a nice conclusion. Overall great series. If you've read the others, then you can't miss this one.
