They are called the Demons, one of the elusive Nightwalker races living in shadow and struggling for survival against their human enemies. Their proudest warrior is Elijah, a man who bends for nothing and no one...until one woman brings him to his knees.
Some Feelings You Just Can't Fight
He is known as the Warrior Captain-a master of every weapon, a fierce soldier sworn to protect his kind. Powerful, relentless, merciless, Elijah has always won every battle he's ever taken on-until now. Ambushed by necromancers, he is left for dead only to be discovered by the woman who could very well deliver the final blow.Siena, the Lycanthrope Queen.
With three centuries of warring, little more than a decade of uneasy peace has existed between the Lycanthropes and Elijah's people. Now, after a lifetime of suspicion, the warrior in Elijah is consumed with a different battle-winning Siena's heart by giving her pleasure beyond all boundaries. What starts as attraction and arousal soon burns into a passion with consequences that will echo through the ages for both their people. And as would-be enemies become inseparable lovers, another threat approaches, one with the power to destroy them all.
Setting aside the centuries of warfare between them, the Demons (paranormal but neither Biblical nor evil) and Lycanthropes are working together to defeat the Necromancers, who threaten both their races. When Demon warrior captain Elijah is nearly killed in an ambush, he is rescued and restored by none other than Siena, the Lycanthrope queen. Before long they discover a powerful attraction, but Siena fears that giving in to love will mean relinquishing her power. After the heavy world-building in Frank's last two Nightwalker books (Jacoband Gideon), newcomers may struggle to keep straight the various paranormals and their powers; they'll be more comfortable in the romance department, which proves steamy in the extreme, occasionally bordering on deep purple. Both leads are strong, and Frank grants her hero a refreshing measure of insight into the relationship. What works even better is the camaraderie that develops between the Nightwalker "tribes," as Frank plunges deeper into her dark world. (Dec.)

1 . Great Book
Posted April 30, 2010 by cydriscoll , TexasI love it as much as I did the first two books in the Nightwalkers collection.
2 . The first two books are better
Posted February 13, 2009 by Gio , TampaI enjoyed reading the first two books. In this book I skipped the intimate scenes, due to their length. This book is worth reading to keep up with the main story.
3 . Disappointment......
Posted November 15, 2008 by Cooper , HoustonI did not like this book. I felt exhausted when it was finally through. I did not like the Queen, who I felt did not deserve Elijah. She was annoying to say the least. It was nowhere as good as Jacob!!! I think I will take a break from this series, I read Book#1(5 stars) and Book#2(3 stars). Too bad, I was so exciting when I discovered this author after reading Jacob, what a great disappointment.
