Book Description

Dec 25 2007 Nightwalkers (Book 3)
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...

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

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 (Jacob and 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.)

Jacquelyn Frank has done it again! Another action packed, beautiful romantic story. Elijah and Siena's story showed depth and so much action, I ended up reading this book in one night. Eagerly awaiting book four...

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Three Aug. 15 2008
By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
These are such interesting times. Druids are being rediscovered and Imprinting with Demons. Hybrid children are being born with potentially new and powerful abilities. The bond of Imprinting pairs are happening with a frequency that is almost alarming. And since Siena became Queen of the Lycanthropes about fifteen years ago, the war between Demon and Lycanthrope has ceased. Siena has chosen to remain celibate so she would not have to share her reign with a mate who may possibly destroy the fragile new peace. During her father's reign, many beings of both races died. The Demon Warrior who killed most of her people is Elijah, the Demon King's Warrior Captain and right-hand man. Siena's people called him the "Demon Butcher".

When Siena comes upon an all-female sect of necromancers in Lycanthrope territory about to strike the killing blow on Elijah, the huntress immediately shifts to her puma form and rescues him. But while nurturing the Demon warrior back to health, Siena and Elijah become lovers and Imprint. Siena has no choice but admit that the Demon is her mate, yet she also knows that she cannot make Elijah the King of the Lycanthropes without civil war.

***** The traitors, Ruth and Mary, are leading the female necromancers and have become a great threat to both the Demon and the Lycanthrope races. The author has added more Nightwalker races to the story and, in doing so, has created more drama for her readers. Hints are given of even more Nightwalker races to be added into the series. Perhaps this will happen within the next book or two. If this keeps up the series may never come to an end, much less a satisfying one. I cannot help but wonder if the author, Jacquelyn Frank, will be able to top this installment of the Nightwalker series. This is one string of tales that just seems to get better and better. *****

5.0 out of 5 stars A "sweet" Demon series? Dec 19 2007
By Amanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The most surprising thing about this series is the lack of conflict. It's sugary sweet for a book about Demons, Vampires and Lycos. You definitely won't lose any sleep here! The books basis is this: Among the fragile truces between the different night dwellers, they come together to fight human magic makers known as necromancers, who are slowly but surely staking out Vamps and Lycos, and entrapping Demons in pentagrams until they are no longer sane. It's a good series, the characters are all very interesting and you may not miss that bite of, well, crude language and descriptive violence that we have all come to expect in this genre, a refreshing Lore book, and go figure? Sure they get serious injuries and there are some cool battles but those aren't really the focus. The love match is 80% of this book, yes, the sex is nice and steamy, but very tender and the focus is on the intimate fears and feelings the characters are experiencing. The conflict carries from book to book, as in we don't know who the "big bad wolf" is yet, then we can't get them yet and there may be others, the series really needs to be read in order to be fully appreciated. I will definitely follow this series as I have come to know and like the characters very much. We not only revisit past characters as the series progresses, but those characters hold strong roles in every book. 5 stars because sure, it's different, but bravo for that in and of it self!

4.0 out of 5 stars Yay Elijah! 4.5 Stars Dec 24 2007
By MrsRony - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have LOVED this series from the start and this book is no different. The only problem I did have was it wasnt as tight as the other 2. The first two books, Jacob and Gideon were tight, to the point and hit the ground running. Her writing is incredible. This one was way too wordy in a few places that just werent necessary...especially in the first 30-40 pages. I found my self saying enough of the kiss description already I get its a great kiss. Other than that this is a great installment and if this villian doesnt die soon I am gonna find a spell and kill her myself!! I have never hated a villan so much as this woman!!

I cant wait to see how this all will play out. It was great to see Giedon and Jacob and the men all interacting. Mz Frank does a fantastic job of taking you away to another world and dropping you off full of energy ready to go again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Third in series - a cross-cultural imprinting Dec 25 2007
By Helen Hancox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This story follows very much the style and form of the previous two in the series, "Jacob" and "Gideon". It focuses on the Demons, one of the groups of Nightwalkers (various creatures that go Bump In The Night like Vampires, Lycanthropes and the Demons, powerful supernatural beings) and in this story on the chief Warrior demon, Elijah, whose history includes being the warrior who killed the King of the Lycanthropes fourteen years ago.

Unfortunately as the story starts Elijah has been cornered by his enemies and seriously wounded. Just before he's finished off by Ruth and Mary, the former Demons who have now turned evil, those attacking him are frightened away by the call of a wild cat - a Cougar. That animal is the Queen of the Lycanthropes, Siena, whose rule for the last fourteen years since the death of her father has done a great deal to build bridges of peace with the Demons and the Vampires. Siena herself, rather in the manner of Queen Elizabeth I, has decided to stay a virgin so that she doesn't have to share her throne with a man who might drag the Pride back into war. The nature of being a Lycanthrope Queen means that if she mates with anyone that mating bond is for life.

Siena hasn't realised, however, the powerful pull of attraction she will feel when taking care of an almost-dead Elijah. She takes him to safey in a cave but they are trapped there for several days and despite the fact that they are from different species and the Demon Lore forbids any relationships between Demon and Lycanthrope, rather inevitably they find themselves unable to hold back their lusts. When they separate to go back to their individual lives there is clear evidence that there was more to this 'one off' mating than either of them imagined.

Their attempts to stay apart or to find a way of dissolving the Imprinting bond take their attention away from the fight against Mary and Ruth but soon all the Demons, as well as some of the other Nightwalkers, find themselves fighting for their lives.

As with the other books this is written in a lush style which is easy to read. However, also like the other books, the actual plot is rather thin and it seems that the characters spend quite a lot of time thinking or talking or faffing amongst themselves rather than doing anything (and the stuff they're doing doesn't really add to the sense of character for them, either). I was also a little disappointed that more wasn't made of the cross-cultural problem; for Elijah his mating with Siena breaks thousand year taboos (maybe like humans mating with chimps?) and for Siena to ally herself with a race that had been at war with hers for 300 years, not least that her mate is the man who killed her father, is a huge step and yet this all seems swept under the carpet remarkably easily. I had hoped for far more exploration of what this might mean to the individuals involved, the hostility they might face, and yet there was almost none.

Still this is a reasonable enough read in the genre with lots of input from the heroes and heroines of the previous novels as well as some likely new plot lines for future books. Those who enjoyed the others should like this one, others starting with this book should enjoy it but with some reservations.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm done with this series and its repetitive nature Feb. 26 2008
By K. Hinton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The third book in Jacquelyn Frank's Nightwalker series picks up shortly after Gideon (The Nightwalkers, Book 2), the second book in the series, ends. Jacob and Isabella's daughter has been born and Warrior Captain Elijah and empath Magdelegna have been names her Siddah (the demons who will foster her and help her hone her powers), though a naming ceremony hasn't yet taken place. Isabella is recovering from the vicious attack on her and her baby, led by former councilwoman turned traitor Ruth and the female necromancers with whom she's joined forces. The demons and other Nightwalkers have just scored a victory against this group though--at the beginning of Elijah--we learn how short lived this coup may be.

When Elijah starts, the traitorous females in question have captured the demon king's warrior captain and are using their magic to torture him. Elijah is near death when the women are frightened away by the piercing scream of a cougar in the distance, and the Lycanthrope Queen Siena comes to his aid. Siena retreats into a nearby cave with Elijah and nurses him back to health. Of course the attraction is there, but they both fight it--for very different reasons. For Elijah, it's that the rules of his race prohibit him from Imprinting (the demon version of mating) with a mate who isn't of his same species. For Siena, it's that she is the queen of a matriarchal society and has no wish to share her rule with a man who could bring ruin to her people. Elijah is the story of how these two try to overcome these obstacles and prove that love really does conquer all.

I have to say that I was indifferent to Jacob (The Nightwalkers, Book 1). I liked the fact that it was a paranormal story that wasn't just about vampires and werewolves. Also, despite the fact that I didn't like the hero and heroine of that book, I did enjoy the secondary characters, Gideon and Magdelegna and for that reason I was willing to read the next book in the series. But then I didn't really care for Gideon. It was like Jacob all over again, with so much plot rehashing I wondered why Frank even bothered to call this second book by another name. And once again the only reason I even bothered to read Elijah is that I really liked these characters (Elijah and Siena) when they were introduced in Gideon. So I've learned my lesson. I'm done with the Nightwalkers series. Half of each book is just a rehashing of what happened in the previous story. And the only good thing about each book is the attention given to the secondary characters who will be at the forefront of the next book.

If you want something a series of paranormal romances that are worthwhile and don't spend so much time focusing on what happened in previous books, check out Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series beginning with A Hunger Like No Other (The Immortals After Dark Series, Book 1). And if you're into paranormal that is a little off the beaten path like the Nightwalker series tries to be, check out Richelle Mead's urban fantasy series starting with Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid, Book 1).

3.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly Average Dec 26 2008
By Chelsea Marie Spencer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
To begin I really love this series as a whole. While I did not hate this book, I don't believe it lives up to the same standard as those that came before or after.

The Plot:

Elijah, the Captain of the Demon warriors, falls in love with Siena, the Queen of the Lycanthrope people. More, they become Imprinted, soul mates, with no power to resist the forces pushing them together. Despite this, Siena resists, not wanting to risk her throne or her people--or allow herself to be vulnerable to Elijah.

The Best Parts:

It's hard not to love Elijah-he's funny and sexy. He is willing to do just about anything to keep Siena as his own.

The world Frank has built remains rich and enthralling. Her variety of characters both old and new, including menacing villains, keep the book from becoming overly dull.

Where It Fell Short:

In my opinion this book was not nearly as romantic as it could have been. I found Siena's resistance to be annoying, even insulting, rather than understandable and sexy. More, the compromise they come up with seemed equally unfair to Elijah.

At this stage in the series I expected something very different from the first two books. However, it is very much like the first two in plot structure and tone. That's not entirely a bad thing, but if you read them back to make you may find it boring. Damien, book four, does a better job at adding variety.

If you have begun this series and enjoyed it so far I recommend continuing, because it is well worth getting through one average read to get to the much more fulfilling ones-Damien and Noah.
