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 ...more
I LOVE, love love this series, but for some reason this book didn't work for me like the previous ones :(
I guess what attracted me here was Egypt and pharaohs and everything, all that this book didn't have. :(
Plus, the way everything went between the main couple...
(view spoiler)[I don't like false memories and here, there wasn't any falling in love or getting to know each other, because it was all stuffed into a dream that made them connect. (hide spoiler)]
I just didn't buy it and their ...more

And this book it really gave me Good Vibes.
Since the moment i discovered this series i was fascinated by the world Jacquelyn Frank created and i couldn't get enough of it. So when i saw this book of NetGalley i had to have it and i loved it but not as much as the others but it had nothing to do with the book it was just me. First of all i am not a big fan of books with angels ...more
Jacquelyn Frank’s FORSAKEN is a Richly Detailed Intersection

I’ve read several of Jacquelyn Frank’s series now, and in my opinion this is the best of what I’ve read. I was immediately engaged in this blend of the Bodywalkers’ ...more
In Forsaken, we have the delectable story of our lovely Leo. Now in the previous books he has always been a bit elusive but I have loved his friendship with Jackson/Menes. But In this book we see how he is torn. He has just gone through a terrible ordeal of being tortured over and over again and despises Nightwalkers. Now that he is on the road to recovery, he has many things he needs to come to terms with including his best friend being ...more
Jacquelyn Frank writes a wonderfully conflicted character in Leo. He loves and is loyal to his friend but still resents and is unsure of the second spirit sharing his body. When his friend is seriously injured, Leo will pull out all the stops to save him.
Leo must deal with his prejudices as well as his growing feelings for the beautiful Night ...more
that made me shiver and pause reading. Had to shake nasty images away. Felt connected to
the main characters though. Good chemistry. Full of emotion the good, the bad and the ugly.
Really a very good read. 4 + stars!

I loved this installment of the Nightwalker series. Leo, vulnerable, but with the strength and courage that makes a girl swoon and Faith with a tender caring heart along with the soul of a warrior. I am enjoying the Egyptian theme that also combines various other paranormal references. It had it ...more
This book was not my cup of tea. It was confusing and disorienting. I have not previously read anything concerning the Nightwalkers or Bodywalkers and this concept was hard for me to grasp. The whole concept was confusing for me and I couldn't quite get a grasp on the mythology. I was bored and it was a chore to finish this book and I would probably not read another book by this writer only because it didn't really interest me. The lead characters were not that likable to me either. I couldn't...more
General: I typically love the Nightwalkers series and Jacquelyn Frank's work. However I seem to be struggling a lot of with Bodywalkers. Please note that it is an impossibility to read this book without reading the other two first. Very little is explained and will add to the confusion. I absolutely love the concept behind them. Ancient Egypt has always been a love of mine and it was fantastic seeing it used and ...more
Franks gives it to me again. This time I get Leo and there was no holding him back. Even with all ...more
I will continue to buy Franks book, but this particular book in this series is not my favorite. I can usually finish one of her books in a couple of hours, but I felt like this kind of dragged on. I loved the characters for sure. The plot was interesting as well. I am not sure why this book didn't do it for me, but it didn't.
Leo was wounded and damaged. Maybe too damaged for too long. Faith was sweet and almost perfect. I loved them together. ...more
The premise of this series, as well as the original one, is fascinating. Several supernatural races of beings, known as Nightwalkers, exist side by side with humans, who are completely unaware that such beings walk the planet. Among these races are the Bodywalkers, humans who serve as hosts to the souls of ancient and very ...more
The Bodywalkers, for those who hadn't read the previous books, are immortal creatures living without a body form in a timeless place, waiting to find a mortal as a host in which they ...more
Faith brought Leo back into the light where he learned to accept things about himself and the people around him. With the help of a Djinn, they were able to prevent something that would be disastrous had it come to fruition.
Great continuation with loads of action. Excited for the next ...more
Forsaken picks up just a short time after Forever. The Bodywalker Kamenwati who had broken an ancient curse to bring forth the Demon God Apep hoping to gain his own power realized his humongous, unforgivable error and in the hopes of gaining sanctuary, rescued Leo and brought him back to Jackson/Menes as a sort of peace offering. Now, the whole group has moved to the desert of New Mexico in the hopes of buying some time while Jackson, his mate Marissa, and ...more
Jacquelyn Frank returns to the world of the Nightwalkers and there is so much going on! We knew about a handful of the Nightwalkers but Ms Frank has been teasing us with more. In Forsaken we touch back in with the bodywalkers, we meet more of the Djinn and are introduced to THREE new nightwalker species!! YEP THREE!! The Night Angels, The Wraiths and the Mystics. But not all of these races are willing to work together. War is on the rise, battles are being ...more
Another wonderful book from the amazing Jacquelyn Frank. Forsaken is the third book in her World of the Nightwalkers series. I have to say that this one is my favorite. It is such a great story, with a hero that I absolutely loved. The story came to life for me. It was exciting with a unique adventure, and showed emotions like true friendship, loyalty and passion. I loved it.
The Leo Alvarez that we first met was a mercenary alpha dude. We learned things about his past and the bond of ...more
