I wanted to love this book, but I am totally on the fence with this whole series. Which is a shame since I’ve devoured every book that JF has written. However, I just don’t care for the whole “bodywalker” thing. Two souls sharing the same body is too confusing to me. Although this book wasn’t quite as confusing as the first one, it still felt like a “ménage à everybody!".
I got this book because it was Jackson’s story and he was my favorite character from Forbidden. Wow! He did not disappoint in this one. The narration was great too.
Unfortunately, Jackson and Xe Sands still didn’t make this a 5 star listen for me. I guess I will have to wait until JF writes another series. In the meantime, I’ll take a pass on the bodywalkers.

Good second instalment into the Nightwalker world - a love story with lots of supernaturals and their lore of sharing a human's body with a race of long dead Ancients who are each given the chance to come back every 100 years to continue the fight against the Templars who want to take over and control the Nightwalkers.
The last book finished as Jackson took the chance offered him when he died and now he happily shares his body with the very alpha Egyptian Pharaoh Menes who is pinning away for his Queen so, apart from protecting her, they try desperately to convince Marissa (a psychiatrist and someone Jackson had been drooling over) to allow her body to be shared with the deity.
JF builds and explains the Nightwalker world and what they can and can't do and we learn, along with Marissa, the longing that Menes and Jackson have for her to say yes to their heartfelt proposal. However, Jackson wants to seduce her into it (and he does a mighty fine job too) but Menes wants to be more forceful. There's romance, passion, excitement, gargoyles that come to life, action, sex (not too graphic), sub plots and a powerful evil entity has been released so the plot is building up to eventually be cataclysmic.
Worth a credit? Yes, any paranormal romance lover should enjoy the heartfelt decision that Marissa has to make. Unfortunately, it looks like we will have to wait til early next year for book 3 Forsaken - Leo's story (boo hoo).
