My Thoughts…

I have a love/hate relationship with the Nightwalker series. I love the storyline, the characters are great and I always come away with a sigh of enjoyment at the end of each book. But (there’s always a but), it does take a while for things to start moving and for plot lines to be revealed. It has been a trend for me in three books I’ve read into the series so far – but because of my perseverance I’ve found enjoyment in three books I may have put down had I not carried on.

So, book three is centers around Elijah, guard to the Demon King and Siena, the Queen of the Lycanthropes. Both, though accepting of their races alignments, still harbor prejudices. Elijah is left for dead when Siena comes across him and despite their haste opinions of one another she takes Elijah to safety.

In the safety of the mountains the couple are forced to face their growing attraction for one another. Meanwhile a familiar face is still causing trouble for the Nightwalker race and is still aligning themselves with the rallying necromancers who are out for demon blood.

Final Thoughts…

Do you have to read the previous books? Meh, not really – there are moments where Frank makes references to events in previous books but they’re rarely focused on for more than a couple of sentences. The big evil in this book is a running theme, which was sparked by the events at the end of the first book.

So far this hasn’t been my favourite of the series. My love for Gideon (book two) because I loved the tension between Gideon and Legna and the way it evolved throughout to the end of the book (plus I can’t help but picture him as Eric Dane aka McSteamy)

Though Frank's romantic descriptions tend to grow quite wordy and sometimes I feel like I'm stumbling over the words as I try to process their deeper meaning she does weave a great story and once things get rolling you get sucked in headfirst. It is off putting; the thought of having to trudge through pages in order to see the story move along, but the payout at the end is worth it.
