This is by far my favorite of the series. I'll admit, Jacob (book 1) didn't blow me away. But it was enough for me to read Gideon (book 2), which I also loved.
I haven't enjoyed a series this much since I discovered the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by JR Ward and the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian.
I think JF does an excellent job with the love scenes. They do go on for pages and pages (as mentioned by another member) but I think the author does a great job of keeping them hot and original. You'd think writing about that much sex, she'd run out of ideas.
Anyway, hope this review encourages someone else to give this series a try.
Though I liked Elijah for the most part, the Nightwalker series is starting to lose my interest a little. I found Siena very annoying and felt that Elijah could have had a better mate. I understood her reasoning to deny what was happening, but it was too extreme. The romances remain sappy and apparently I prefer a little more grit to paranormal romances. I much prefer to read about the actual plot of the book instead of the romance. Surprisingly, (for me, at least), I find the romances distracting and I wish these books were urban fantasy instead. I think Frank does a pretty good job with the world-building and I wish that would be her main focus.
Great characters, interesting ideas, just the writing gets muddled and the love scenes seems to go on for pages and pages.
The first book in this series (Jacob) is one of my favorite books of all time - unfortunately each subsequent book has been weaker than the first. While I love the storyline, this one, Elijah, has a rather weak storyline. It just seems to be one sex scene after another. I hope Damien is better since it is a different Nightwalker group (vampires) and should have more dynamic interplay between the characters.
Frank is awesome as a storyteller. She pulls you in at the first chapter and keeps interested until the end. Great read.
Totally different line of thought from the overabundance of vampire books out there.
