Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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." (Publishers Weekly)

Five Stars For The Narration

Once this book finally got going with some dialog instead of all the thinking and telling of the story I enjoyed it. The "voices", the interpretation of the characters personalities and their actions were all spot on.

This series is fabulous as narrated by Sands - Audio is the ONLY way to go with these books.

Demons vs Lycanthropes ... who will win??

This is the third book in the Nightwalker series. This book revolves around Elijah, the Demon Warrior Captain and Siena, the Lycanthrope Queen. Ruth, the Demon Chancellor, has teamed up with the necromancers and they have trapped Elijah and have beaten him down to the brink of death. Luckily for Elijah, Siena was prowling nearby and scarred off the necros before they could deliver the death blow to him. Siena then pulls Elijah to safety in a nearby cave and starts tending to his wounds.

We know from earlier books that Elijah and Siena both have a hidden attraction for each other, but it is an attraction that is best hidden because mating between the two species is strictly forbidden for him. Because of the Lycanthrope history of war with the demon races, demons should be the last choice of a mate for lycanthropes also. So that is what makes it that much better! Forbidden love is so sweet.

Elijah and Siena try to fight the in grown prejudices they have for each other’s species, the growing attraction they have for each other, and the call of that dreaded moon has on their libido. It is difficult to do because every touch, every glance, and every breath draw them closer together.

I loved this book! I was worried when I didn’t enjoy the second in the series as much as the first that the series might be on a downward spiral, but I don’t think that anymore. I love the way Jacqueline Frank is putting folks together in her Nightwalker series and cannot wait to see what happens to Damien in the next book.

The Narration Review:
This book was narrated by Xe Sands, who also narrated the first two in the series. She has a very alluring voice and clear diction. I always think the production team must have to run to the showers after a session listening to her read.
