Noah - Nightwalkers, Bk 5 Author:Jacquelyn Frank The Nightwalkers have lived in the shadows of our world for centuries, gifted with abilities few humans can comprehend. For Noah, duty is all -- until he meets the woman who is his destiny. — She Will Take Him — Beyond His Wildest Dreams. — As Demon King, Noah is dedicated to protecting his kind from their human and Nightwalker enemies. Yet for six... more » months he has struggled with vivid dreams that threaten his very sanity. Every night he's tormented by images of a woman both achingly real and tantalizingly beyond his grasp. And his bone -- deep need leaves him no choice but to force her to leave the life she's known and enter a world beyond her imagining.
Every day, Kestra risks her life in perilous missions that veer just shy of the law, but she instinctively knows that the imposingly sensual figure before her is a danger unlike any she's ever faced. Kestra has sworn never to trust or need another man, but Noah's lightest touch scorches her with fevered desire, branding her as his mate, blinding them both to the terrifying truth. For within the ranks of their own people lies an adversary growing in number and power. And nothing and no one will be safe again.
An excellant ending to an outstanding series, beginning with Jacob. The series is a new take on the paranormal with exciting characters, new ideas and situations. If you are a fan of JR Ward or Sherrilyn Kenyon, check into this series. You won't be disappointed.
This was book five in the Nightwalker series and I thoroughly enjoyed it but it also left me a bit confused. The beginning was excellent and I really enjoyed the interaction between Kestra and Noah. I did not find her inability to love a trait that seemed flawed given her ability to read his mind. Many people may know that they are loved but are still unable to find love within themselves to give. To me, this book was a great bounce back from Damien which was nothing of what I expected given how powerful and unique the characters were. What confused me the most is how this is the end of the series? There was nothing about Ruth who was such a formidable character in the first four books, and it seemed like there were more chracters in need of development. I was especially hoping for a hint of who Jasmine may become mated with, if there is a story for her. I really hope that this is not the end of the series and that it continues in the future. All in all, I think it is a great read.
I read the other 4 in this series, and couldn't wait for this one to be released. I must admit that I was disappointed that this book didn't seem to live up to the previous books. It was the final book in this series, but didn't resolve a lot of the issues (Ruth etc) that were throughout the other books. Still a good read, but not as good as hoped.
Another excellent read in the Nightwalkers Series, I really enjoyed this book, and was happy to see that Noah finally found a mate. I believe that Jacquelyn Frank has a new series coming out in Feb 09 called the Shadowdwellers, another of the Nightwalker breed so hopefully we will see the villainess Ruth finally meet her demise. All in all I loved the whole series and Ms Frank has done a excellent job. Cant wait to read more.
Another dissapointing effort from Frank. This series had so much potential and Jacob really is a ground breaking paranormal romance. However like the other Nightwalker books, Noah lacks excitement and any real connection between the main characters. There are interesting parts to the book and the beginning is actually quite good. However the main tension between the characters (Kestra's inability to love) seems contrived and very fake. I mean if she can read her mate's mind there can be no basis for mistrust or apprenhension. By the end of this seemingly endless book I was mostly skimming just to finish it. Hopefully Frank's up coming Shadowdweller books can breathe new life to this series because right now it is very dead.
Noah was the 5th book in Jacquelyn Frank's series. I feel there must be a 6th one in the makes
as the "bad" guy did not get her come upin's. All five were terrific. Loved Jacob, Elijah and Noah
the best but the other two were at least a 4 1/2 star. If you are into romantic "nightwalker" things,
these are terrific.
Long and slow going. I guess if you want a romance, it has that. But I was more interested in the Nightwalker world. Nothing about Ruth and Nico, although rogue vampires made it slightly interesting. The main characters lacked spark and heat. Funny, since fire and explosives are their elements. Better than Damien, but long way from Jacob, which was the best book. Jacob sizzled.
Will wait for her Night' book which will be about Jazmine. I hope Jaz kicks a--!
