Haunted by magic, beset by evil, the Nightwalkers face their darkest hour yet. And when they unthinkable happens, only one legendary male has the power,
the will, to save them: Adam….


From their first tantalizing touch, Jasmine knows he is different. What other lover 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.

Review: I’ve been a fan of this series since book 1.  And when it supposedly ended after book 5, Noah, I wasn’t ready to let it go.  But when I heard that Ms Frank wasn’t done with the Nightwalkers and there was another a new book in the works… well, I was excited.  And then to be given a copy for review… well, be still my heart.

So this books starts out with a bang.  We’ve thrown smack dab in the middle of the demon’s war and Ms Frank had me in tears in the first 20 pages and something unthinkable happens to set events in motion.  And the roller coaster ride didn’t end until the last page.  I laughed, I cried, I found myself biting my nails and sitting on the edge of my seat as the the book climaxed with a battle scene.

I enjoyed revisiting old friends as the demon’s battle with Ruth comes to a head.  It was fun watching Adam and Jasmine, mortal enemies, circle each other and fighting their attraction, but also banding together against the greater evil.  But in reality, the romance in this book was secondary to me as I was totally enthralled with finding out how the arcing story of the rogue demon who was terrorizing her fellow Nightwalkers was going to play out.  My only complaint was that I felt the final battle scene was shorter than I expected.

I sincerely hope that this isn’t the last book in the series.  I’ve enjoyed this world that Ms Frank has created and always enjoy a return trip to visit the Nightwalkers.
