I was only mildly impressed with the first book in this series, but I decided to give the second one a try. LOVED IT! Gideon was a great hero, especially if you like your men very reserved and controlled, then watch them unravel! I never could understand how Legna could acknowledge the Imprinting, yet put off sleeping with him. Made for some great tension in the story, though! Great scene where she forces through Gideon's emotional barriers and he snaps.
For all you Sherrilyn Kenyon fans, he sort of reminds me of Acheron, who is the UBER-Man in my opinion.
I have now become enamored with the series and have already gotten the next one (Elijah). I loved Elijah's character, so I am looking forward to diving in!
This series from Jacquelyn Frank is a very intelligent collection on demons, druids, vampires, and werewolves. This particular story hits upon the May-December romance between two demons. The story line is well thought out and extremely developed. She has put a lot of thought into making sure there is a basis for the conflict. This book, sucks you in and leaves you wanting more on each of the characters that are brushed upon in the story.
I did read the first in this series, Jacob, and felt it was a decent start to a new series. So, when I found a cheap used copy of this one, I figured what the heck?
Ugh, I wish I hadn't bothered. I didn't even finish it, and I just don't NOT finish a book. It's only happened less than a handful of times.
I felt like it took way too long to get to the story for this book. It seemed like a quarter of the book was spent rehashing the first one. And not even creatively. The dialogue felt so forced and obvious, I thought I was reading a bad Soap Opera's script or something.
I got more than half way through it, and never once could connect to the main characters. Or, should I say, who the main characters are supposed to be. There's so much involving other characters, I felt Gideon and Legna, were almost side story.
Not sure if I could make myself read the next one. But who knows... I can be a glutton for punishment.
2nd book of the nightwalkers. this is gideon & Legna's story. he is the powerful ancient of over 1000 yrs old & she is but a mere 300-so very different yet fated to be together. love the way she mixes so many different species. you also get to read about some of the characters from the 1st book jacob also. this is a great series. can't wait for the next one.
EXCELLENT BOOK!!!!!!! Kept my interest as much as the first one in the series!
