Jacquelyn Frank-Forsaken (The World of Nightwalkers #3)

Adult Paranormal Romance

New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank continues her scorching and sensual new series set in the world of the Nightwalkers, where alluring entities known as Bodywalkers are the vanguards against the raging forces of darkness.

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 Egyptian pharaoh. Jackson is now inhabited by a Bodywalker, and Leo is forced to grapple with a realm of supernatural beings far more dangerous than anything he’s ever encountered.

But when Jackson is wounded by an attack from a demon god, Leo must team up with another supernatural creature—a Night Angel—to save his friend from utter destruction. With skin as black as midnight, hair as white as snow, and a body of pure perfection, the Night Angel arouses a burning desire in Leo, even as he refuses to be intimidated by her power—or the power of those who would destroy his friend. An unusual alliance is forged, electrified by sexual temptation, and together the two must unite their strengths to bring down a supreme evil.

Jacquelyn Frank has a very detailed imagination. I love the worlds she creates, they are quite vivid. And I was really taken by the concept of Egyptian pharaohs becoming bodywalkers, its a great concept and storyline. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I didn't "click" with this one. I didn't find any empathy or love for the H/h. It took me a long time to finish this one, I put it down at least a half dozen times before finishing it. Leo's anger, though justified, got in the way of me feeling anything for him. And even though Faith is an outstanding character (well written, imaginative) I just couldn't find myself putting the two of them together. That being said, this is still a great addition to the storyline as a whole. It moves everything along with a decent pace and adds to the overall series. Not my favorite, but still a great series I will continue with.
