Adam - Nightwalkers, Bk 6 Author:Jacquelyn Frank Hunted by magic, beset by evil, the Nightwalkers face their darkest hour yet. And when the unthinkable happens, only one legendary male has the power, the will, to save them: Adam.... — FOR 400 YEARS HE WAS LOST TO HER, BUT HE IS HERS TONIGHT... — From their first tantalizing touch, Jasmine knows he is different. What other lover... more » could unlock her tight control, flood vampire senses jaded by a lifetime of decadent self indulgence? Centuries ago, when he disappeared without a trace, she had given up hope of ever fulfilling the promise of incomparable passion. But here he is, against the very laws of nature, ready to bring down their most vicious enemy, ready to bring her blood to the boiling point... if she will only let him.
This book really grabbed me in the beginning! Whoa! And I loved seeing all the other characters show up. But the actual romance between Jasmine and Adam really falls short. It's like an accident that happens as a side story to the rest of the action. I loved the action, but needed more for their romance. All that happens between them is that Noah pairs them together to hunt foe Ruth, and when we next see them together (almost), they discover they are Imprinted. They decide it is useless to fight the Imprinting, so there, we're done. Period. Hmmmm...could have used a bit more there. But I still love the series and hope it's not done!
I re-read the other five books before starting this one. I had forgotten how much I liked them.
This starts out with a bang. It's 13 years after Noah, and the whole of Nightwalker society is falling apart. Teenage Leah, the first Demon of Time, feels compelled to alter time by bringing Adam from 400 years ago to the present day.
That part of the book grabbed me and held on. It slipped some from there. I felt that Jasmine gave in a little to easily. The whole of the polt wrapped up without enough conflict.
That said, I still couldn't put it down. This one goes on my keeper shelf with the other five.
An exciting story that finally puts Demon Ruth where she belongs. What a God awful evil bitch! At one point or another, everyone was involved in this story which was nice since it's been three years since the previous installment...Noah. Jacob and Isabella, Noah and Kestra, Elijah and Siena, Damien and Syreena, Ruth and Nicodemus, Kane and Corrine, as well as a Shadowdweller named Windsong and a mysterious female from the future.
And of course, we must not forget yummy Adam and Jasmine, who as a couple I really liked. They are surprisingly similar regardless of demon and vampire origins. Oh the babies they will make. And speaking of babies, it will be interesting to see how Leah, Seth, Asher and whoever else is in the works deal with the future. Of course, there is no Ruth but I'm sure Ms. Frank will create another equally evil enemy for the next generation to defeat. I can't wait!
