“One day she will be born into a woman who will not fall for your charms so easily,” Ram said.
“Oh, I but live for the day!” With a whoop he kicked his steed into motion. Over his shoulder he shouted, “Where would the fun be in an easy conquest?”

Amazing book, even better than the first one, and I have to say, it made me want to read all the other Nightwalker series :))))

I am a fan of the Nightwalker series, and I liked the first book in this World of Nightwalker series. However the occupations and relationships of the human’s in this story require more suspension of belief than the supernatural one’s. Marissa is a Doctor. She went to medical school and became a Psychiatrist. That means that she is a extremely intelligent and driven woman. She works for the Police Department, so she is constantly dealing with the human psyche, especially the darker aspects. Jack ...more

Forever is the second book from the The World of Nightwalkers series of
Jacquelyn Frank and i loved it. I am not a big fan of paranormal and i never
thought i will find another series to love so much. This books made me buy all books
connected with this series and i can't wait to read them.

At the end of the first book Jackson Waverly dies and he is being reborn as the host for Menes the Egyptian pharaoh and the king of Bodywalkers.

Nice abs, huh?

I’m so glad that I finally discovered Jacquelyn Frank. (Yes, I know, I’m a bit behind in my series reading). I absolutely adored Forbidden, the first book in her World of the Nightwalkers series. As I settled down to read Forever, I knew I was in for a treat.

The plot picks up right where Forbidden left off, but this book focuses on the hunky Jackson Waverly and his love interest Marissa Anderson. Jackson is a K-9 officer in the Saugerties police force. He loves his job but is griev

Jacquelyn Frank has an incredible imagination. She creates very intricate worlds. And I have to say she makes me really use my brain. A lot of authors will slip in to slang or "easy" vocabulary that you can just about read on autopilot. But not JF, she uses the whole dictionary and I appreciate that, gives my brain a work out along with my imagination.

We left off in the first book with Jackson dying and becoming a bodywalker. So what does he do now? He has to slowly pull out of his life as a hum
Jack Waverly was killed in an explosion, but in death he is offered a rebirth...the catch he has to share his body with another soul, the great pharaoh Menes. Menes is a Bodywalker, a leader of an ancient race that co-exist inside another human. Menes and his queen Hatshepsut have decided to return to the mortal world once again and Menes must find another vessel, human to host his queens soul.

Jack is a police officer and has recently lost his K9 partner. Jack is obsessing over the hot Dr. Ander

Jacquelyn Frank has returned to the world of the Nightwalkers. Forever is book two of her Bodywalkers leg of the Nightwalkers. I am beginning to believe that she will be telling the story of each Nightwalker Species then gradually tie them all together. This is beginning to get really interesting as we have heard from the Demons, the Shifters, the Vamps, the Shadowdwellers and now are getting some inside peaks into the lives of the Bodydwellers that leaves seven species unaccounted for... hmmmm.

Forever picks up right where the first book in the series Forbidden ends. King Menes has been incarnated through Jackson Waverly, a police officer, who was introduced in Forbidden. It is ideal to start the series at the beginning, but Frank provides enough exposition throughout this second book for readers to become comfortable with the storyline and ongoing conflicts.

Jackson and Menes have gone through the process of blending and, now, along with fighting against his enemies, one of Menes’ pri

I've read everything that J.Frank has published - even the stuff under Jax pen name - and enjoyed it. Mostly because she really knows how to build a believable world that is so convincing and real, it makes me want to revisit it over and over again.

With this new spin-off series in the World of Nightwalkers, I had a little trouble with the world. I never quite believed in it and I have this vague impression that neither did the characters.

Usually when I get a new J.Frank book, I devour it in one
Barbara ★
I love the whole Egyptian mythology and reincarnation feel of this series. This one centers around Menes and Hatepshut, well actually Jackson Waverly and Marissa Anderson who are incorporated by Menes and Hatepshut.

The world building is detailed and complex keeping the reader on their toes. This story focuses on Jackson and Marissa's struggles to adapt to the Bodywalkers. The war with the Templars is still an issue but takes an interesting turn that could mean disaster for all Nightwalkers.

This had a lot of potential, and the writing style was decent. But no. Just no. Jackson/Menes is manipulative, condescending, and sometimes downright abusive. And then we're supposed to sympathize with him when his feelings get hurt? Every problem between the two of them was Marissa's fault - the whole point of the book seemed to be how she needed to change to be worthy of him, not how they were changing with each other. And their whole relationship was couched in an outdated power differential ...more

After reading this book I realized that it is part of a series. I like that you can read it by itself. It was not what I usually think of as Paranormal, bit I loved the strong characters of Marissa and Jackson. This has a lot of what we look for in a good book Suspense, Intrigue, Hot Love scenes. This book will make you look forward to the rest of the series.

This book represents the awesomeness that Ms. Frank has delivered in all of her other books. This series has proven to be very addicting. Moving the story to another character that was introduced in a previous book and understanding why this person has been chosen to have his own story is great. The author does a great job of building the relationship between Jackson and Marissa and introducing Marissa to the life of the Nightwalker. The narration by Xe Sands was excellent, as in the other books ...more

Well I have thoroughly enjoyed this book, and in fact I started it immediately after finishing book 1 I just had to carry on reading.

Police officer Jackson Waverly was one of my favourite characters in book 1 he was the reason I had to start the book before reviewing book 1 - and it took me till 80% through before I could put my ereader down for long enough to sit and write a review for the first book.

‘Forever’ is the second novel in The World of Nightwalkers series. I really enjoyed the first book ‘Forbidden’. To me Jacquelyn’s writing is always irresistible; she creates such amazing new worlds. This series is one of my favorites.
Surprisingly I like the sequel ‘Forever’ even more than I liked ‘Forbidden’ and I couldn’t put ‘Forbidden’ down, so that is definitely saying something. I really loved the idea of the mummification process that the Ancient Egyptians did, put them into the Ether and
An unbelievable night changed Officer Jackson Waverly's life in a big way. First, he died in a huge battle while trying to protect his younger sister and then he came back again, but this time he isn't alone. Jackson came back as a host to the leader of the Politic Bodywalkers, the Egyptian pharaoh Menes. Jackson is willing to keep his obligation to Menes, but he also just can't quite walk away from the woman he has silently loved for a while now. Menes, understanding this type of love, has slow ...more
The main problem with this book is that it is too short. And not in a 'oh I need to spend more time with these characters I love so much' kind of short. This book is too short in the sense that it completely misses any sort of discussion or resolution about the problems suggested by its plot.

This is a sequel to the book Forever which introduces readers to the Bodywalkers in the Nightwalker world. Bodywalkers are humans who have almost died and been offered a second chance as the symbiotic host

Forever is the second book in the The World of Nightwalkers sub-series by Jacquelyn Frank which is scheduled for release on May 28 2013. Jackson Waverly has had a lot to process. His sister was kidnapped, and is now sharing the body with an ancient Egyptian.

At the end of the previous book, Jackson is killed and given the option to bring Menes into him as his Bodywalker. Menes is king of the Bodywalkers and is ready to come out and do whatever it is he needs to do. I'm not really clear on what he needs to do because he don't seem to care about anything but finding a vessel for his queen so she can come out too.

In the previous book, Marissa tries to help Jackson find his sister and he rips into her several times because all bad news see

Actually 1.5 Insignificant Stars

I was really dissatisfied with this book. It's not that it was bad but that it felt incomplete. I felt like nothing significant happened in the book. The entire book felt like a big argument that is repeated over and over again and just when something finally happens, it ended. You could call this book a character-based book but you never really find out why the characters are the way they are so even that was a disappointment too. I mean in the one chapter of t

Jackson's life as a cop has prepared him to face evils, but he now faces a new world as a Bodywalker. Like his sister, Docia, he is given a choice and comes back from death sharing his body with the Egyptian pharaoh, Menes.

Menes needs to bring his queen back, and Jackson realizes he is falling for Marissa, his former shrink. But for her to be queen, and a love the two men would share, she'd have to die and accept the same offer Jackson did. Can he do that to her?

Forbidden so detailed the fated l

Jackson is so interesting and i loved that he finally started to let go and let someone besides his sister and Leo get close to him, the fact that Marissa finally accepts him and the crazy world he is now living in was the breaking point and finally all his walls came down.

I really loved Marissa , I totally get where she's coming from, I would question and think things

Danger, Torture, Death, OH MY! All around an epic love story. Fabulous Book

I was on the edge of my seat reading this book. Two people attracted to one another but they cannot do anything about it because they work together. Jackson is a cop and Marissa the police psychiatrist. Marissa has been helping Jackson cope with the loss of his k-9 partner. But Jackson does not want help and is a bit of an ass about it. When Jackson's beloved sister is assaulted then kidnapped Jackson finds himself dealin

This story is Jackson and Marissa's story. It picks up where Forbidden left off.

Jackson has just died and gone to the Ether where he is given a second chance at life by Menes--the Scorpian King. Jackson accepts his second chance.

Marissa had dreamed that Jackson had died in her arms but he is very much alive. She fears her love for him because she fears losing control.

Jackson loves Marissa and comes back for his second chance. He and Menes wants Marissa to host a Bodywalker. They want her to ho

This is the second book in this world of the Bodywalkers that Jacquelyn Frank has created. And while this is not my most favorite type of nightwalkers by her by any means this book was a very interesting one. It it a weird world where the souls of the ancient Pharaohs of Egypt get what they wanted and this was definitely a case of be careful what you wish for lol. They are immortal but have to share a body with a human that was that both can survive and live.

Questo libro è stato recensito per Romanticamente Fantasy Sito da Ayliss 72:

La canzone diceva “… confusa e felice…”, io dopo questo secondo libro della serie The World of Nightwalkers della Frank la cambierei in “… delusa e perplessa…”; una sorta di doccia fredda, visto il mio entusiasmo dopo aver letto Forbidden, il libro precedente.

Il libro è molto incentrato sulle figure di Menes, Jackson e Marissa, in quello che praticamente diventa quasi un ménage a trois, nonostante il professato amore ete
