‘The Nightwalkers’ series Book #3

Paperback: 416 pages Publisher: Zebra (December 18, 2007) Language: English ISBN-10: 0821780670 ISBN-13: 978-0821780671

They are called the Demons, one of the elusive Nightwalker races living in shadow and struggling for survival against their human enemies. Their proudest warrior is Elijah, a man who bends for nothing and no one…until one woman brings him to his knees…

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…

Surrender to the night.

Review: Now I call that a great story!

I love how the author writes her stories. Her characters are believable, with emotions that warm as well as cripple.

Elijah, a warrior through and through, relentless, merciless , a fierce and strong soldier both in mind and body, doesn’t stop for anything. He doesn’t like emotion, but can’t help what he feels. Running into what seemed like a trap at the time was enough to bruise that enormous ego. But it was also what brought Siera to him.

Siera, Lycan Queen, is one heck of a strong woman, in mind and body as well. Emotions she feels clearly, but rules with kindness after the death of her brutal father. She wants to change the feelings of her people towards the Demon kind, to brighten the future. She refuses the want of a mate, not wanting to share her throne with a male who could possibly overthrow her decisions as the head of The Pride.

Together, they are unstoppable. They come together with bang and stay that way, LOL! What they feel for each other is fierce, and although Elijah won’t fight it, it’s trying to get Siera to accept it. She doesn’t undertand how Demons can Imprint one another, constantly sharing feelings and thoughts with one another, feeling the other keenly within themselves. She doesn’t like the thought of that, and it takes a while to accept it. Other things that come into play that only prove that Elijah is her one true mate, more signs that she doesn’t want to believe and fights ‘tooth and nail’.

Ruth is back, creating havoc among both Demonkind and The Pride, and they will do everything they can to stop her. Together, they band to fight the evil that could destroy them all, and I loved it!

The power between the couple, the action, the passion… The reader is sucked into the story, feels everything and sad when it’s over. Excellent! I sooo can’t wait for her next novel, Damien, to come out at the end of May, or for Noah’s in August. This is definitely a series not to miss!
