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...

Forsaken is the third book in The World of Nightwalkers by Jacquelyn Frank and in this installment we read about Leo. In this unique story, Ms. Frank was able to once again create a whole new realm that takes our imagination to another level blending Egyptian history, paranormal, and the human world. I enjoyed that Ms. Frank was able to capture the pure raw emotions of Leo throughout the story allowing readers like myself to feel the experiences that Leo tackles in this book. Another great ...more

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

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

The Nightwalkers' world is expanding. In this installment, a Night Angel finds love in the most unlikely places, in the arm of the human, Leo Alvarez.

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

Shocking and could be traumatic for people sensitive to graphic visual images. Yucky parts
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!

My mistake in this series was skipping the second book. I missed a whole chunk of info from the last book, so it seemed almost as if starting to watch a show from the middle & having to ask the people around you "Hey wait! When did that happen?"

Anyway, Jacquelyn Franks is an amazing writer with all kinds new lore in this book! A dark angel helps Leo find a Djinn who is a high up magical one after an imp who is a male looking like a beautiful woman blasts Jackson's soul apart & left

Forsaken is the first book that I have read by Frank, and I really enjoyed it. Since this book is the first one that I have read in this series, it took me a little bit to familiarize myself with Frank's world and characters, but Frank does a good job at catching up new readers by thrusting them right into the middle of the action. Leo is recovering from a brutal assault and is distrustful of his friends, but when his friend, Jackson, is injured he doesn't think twice about stepping in to help. ...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

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

Forsaken is the third book in the World of Nightwalkers series by Jacquelyn Frank and is scheduled for release on January 7 2014. I would highly suggest reading this series in order (Forbidden is first, Forever is second) rather than jumping in here, only because the Nightwalkers used in this series are not ones that are well know. Getting the groundwork of the mythology here will help readers get lost in the story rather than trying to figure out the particulars as they go. Frank does do a good ...more
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Fascinating new characters added to this new installment of the Nightwalkers. With it all taking place in the new World of the Nightwalker races. I had to take a break in between my readings to go back and get reacquainted with the various series leading up to this one. I loved all the characters and now that they are coming together under one roof (so to speak). Things are getting very interesting.

Franks gives it to me again. This time I get Leo and there was no holding him back. Even with all
3.5 stars. Which I hate to give to a book by Frank.

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.

As a lover of paranormal romance and urban fantasy, I was immediately interested in this series. I had heard of this author before, but had never read any of her books.

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

Leo Alvarez’s best friend Jackson Waverly is inhabited by a Bodywalker and not just any Bodywalker but Menes, a powerful Egyptian pharaoh. A demon god named Apep has been awakened by a spell gone wrong and zaps Jackson, almost mortally wounding him. Leo teams up with Faith, a Night Angel, to save Jackson from death. This takes them on a journey that seems unreal to Leo but he will do everything he can to save his friend. Along the way, Leo finds that Faith is his calming agent and he loves her. ...more

Forsaken is my favorite book in this new series The World of Nightwalkers by Jacquelyn Frank, at the moment, though, in my opinion, is not at the same level as the previous Nightwalkers series, it's missing something, the characters of Bodywalkers fail to get me totally, perhaps a lack of a little bit of charisma.
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

I was dying to read this one after what happened to this character in the last and it did not disappoint. Poor Leo went through some serious crap and with a little bit of Faith, he eventually got through it.

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

This book was exceptional. The only thing that I didn't like about it is that where did Faith go after she left Leo? Obviously her mom was around but did she go back to Australia or what? And how many other siblings does she have? There is not way of knowing. Oh and what is the Pegasus really? In the book there was a mention that he Pegasus was something or rather someone else. What is the horse really? These are the questions that aren't really answered and that makes it very hard.

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

Leo Alvarez thought he was the baddest badass in Town. Former Ranger, now mercenary for hire, he feared nothing and no one. At least he did until he found out there were truly things that went bump in the night. Leo is trying to pull his life together after being tortured by a sadistic Bodywalker. Chatha is an evil Bodywalker who hid his maliciousness behind the face of a Down syndrome man. When Leo went to assist the innocent man, he saw too late the evil that hid within. If he had not been of ...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

I am a huge fan of the Nightwalker series. I didn’t like the Shadowdwellers series, but I read them all anyway. And now I here I am in the World of the Nightwalkers. I can say that I do not like this series either, or to clarify I do not like the Bodywalkers. They should be called Body Snatchers because that is really what they are. This being the first time the “good guy” faction hasn’t completely suppressed their host’s soul is not endearing to me. Basically they are just a bunch of ancient ...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
