Publisher's Summary

As a mercenary, Leo Alvarez has signed on for a lot-but he never signed on for his best friend becoming host to the soul of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. Jackson is now inhabited by a Bodywalker, and Leo is forced to grapple with a realm of supernatural beings far more dangerous than anything he's ever encountered. But when Jackson is wounded by an attack from a demon god, Leo must team up with another supernatural creature-a Night Angel-to save his friend from utter destruction. With skin as black as midnight, hair as white as snow, and a body of pure perfection, the Night Angel arouses a burning desire in Leo, even as he refuses to be intimidated by her power-or the power of those who would destroy his friend. An unusual alliance is forged, electrified by sexual temptation, and together the two must unite their strengths to bring down a supreme evil.

Interesting...

Sidebar: FYI: This review is done from a serious Nightwalker Series fan...

Now review:

Very good continuation of the story so far...

We even get some cameo names or rather hints at possible crossover into the Nightwalker Series... (Gideon, Noah and Damien are somewhat mentioned) I so hope the World of Nightwalkers Series goes in that direction...because I am just not loving this series...

I like it, I think it is good... I mean it's Frank and Sands! You really can't go wrong with this author/narrator duo... but.... the Nightwalker series... was just way way better.. and it was left unfinished, as Elana and Gideon's son never came into his power (child of space).

Anyway... Forsaken picks up right after Forever... this time it's Leo, Docia and Jackson's pseudo brother...

So... he was captured and tortured in most of Forever, now he is saved...but still pretty pissed about well everything that took place in Forever. A night angel (new creature for the nightwalker realm) comes crashing in to save the day, just as the guy/gurl bad guy (the male demon god who took over the bad female bodywalker templar in Forever) to seriously lay a hurting on Jackson. Leo and the new night angel have to go and bring back someone to help Jackson.

Now... I liked the book...as I said before Frank and Sands is simply great... I think however, because I enjoyed the Nightwalker Series so much, and this is called the "World of Nightwalkers," I am just expecting so much more out of this series...

The action is definitely there... but the romance... it is either too quick with not enough story to make the relationship plausible (this book), it takes to long to get there (1st book: Forbidden) or this back and forth angsty-ness is annoying (2nd book: Forever).

See what I mean... my standards for Frank is just way to high maybe... Jacob ( book 1 from the Nightwalker Series) is still way up there as one of the number one paranormal romance books of all time... It has that basic romance setup (boy meets girl/ boy saves girl/ drama/ boy can't have girl/ more drama/boy takes girl anyway/ best drama and action/ boy and girl become inseparable/ HEA).

Although, for serious Frank fans, or Nightwalker fans... you will be left feeling like it just wasn't enough... you are still satisfied, because this book only adds to the Nightwalker world that Frank continues to add too.

It is well worth the purchase, a good credit, buy or sale... Just remember... this series is not a squeal to the Nightwalker Series. This is a brand new series, hopefully to add to the Nightwalker world... expanding it... from what we know. As of yet there has been no crossovers...but like I said... this book is a definite foreshadow of that as a possibility...

Narration was perfection! I don't think Xe Sands can narrate a book any better than what she currently does.. She is my all time favorite narrator...

Overall this book should be:
a 5 for narration,
a 3.5 for plot and story and
a 4.5 for overall-ness!!!

Not as good as the last two

After having read 8 other Jacquelyn Frank books, I was a bit disappointed in this one. The story, characters, plot, excitement were all great. However, there was a little bit too much of Leo's and Faith's narration. The point of Leo's feelings toward the Nightwalkers/Bodywalkers was way overdone. I think the audiobook could have been about an hour or two shorter if the redundancy was removed. I know you need to repeat yourself to get your thoughts across, but so many times? I found myself fast forwarding quite a few times. I don't really like to do that because I'm afraid I will miss something, but I didn't miss anything. It was just the same stuff repeated over and over again. It won't stop me from reading more of Ms. Frank's books, but this one was a bit painful for me. However, the suspense, thrill, romance was all there. I just wanted to skip ahead to find out if they fulfilled their mission. I just wanted to move on.
