Book Description

New York Times Bestseller

Dear Reader,
Please note that the text of this story, ELIJAH by Jacquelyn Frank, begins on page 7. The first six pages are the teaser copy, the Also By The Author page, the title page, the copyright page and the dedication.

Also on the inside front cover, it lists NOAH as available now. That title will be published in September, 2008.

Sorry for any confusion.


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.



Editorial Reviews

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.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A "sweet" Demon series? December 19, 2007
By Amanda
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 December 24, 2007
By MrsRony
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 December 25, 2007
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm done with this series and its repetitive nature February 26, 2008
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

More About the Author

Hi there. It's me! Again. Time to update some more. I am rounding the bend into the double 4's (44 on 2/22/2012) and things are changing so fast in the writing world. I've expanded my online presence to include Facebook and Twitter, a website a blog and every other bleeping thing there is out there in the cyber world. Was finding it hard to manage all that exposure and get work done at the same time, so I now have a full-time assistant, named Natalie. Feel free to contact her for any of your authoring, blogging, promotional requests at natalie@jacquelynfrank.com. She's a good egg and will answer all of your questions, big or small and see to it that I get back to you in a timely manner. I am writing for three different lines (Zebra, Aphrodisia and Ballentine) and under two names (JAX is for my steamier stuff...and yes, it does get steamier!) And I am in over half a dozen languages now! INCUDING a full line of NIGHTWALKERS audio books with the glorious narration of the superb Xe Sands. I'm thrilled with the job she did!

ADAM has just debuted and my fingers are crossed that it will do well. The first hints are that you all LOVE IT and HATE IT and LOVE IT and...well, that's kind of the reaction I was hoping for. ;) Hehehe. What good am I if I can't torment my readers?

I'm still living in Asheville, NC. My kitty family has swelled to *wince* TEN cats. I was fostering and...I found it so hard to trust anyone would give them a better home than me! Is that ego or arrogance or just trust issues?

Email will always be welcomed. I am a tech queen and my laptop has grown roots into my thighs. (And my bottom has grown them into my recliner). I am so thrilled about all of my books and I want to know what everyone thinks of them! I think it would be fascinating to hear what my readers would like to see happen in the Nightwalker world as the series advances. I receive emails at jackifrankwrites@gmail.com these days. Feel free to say hi! Natalie will see to it I get back to you in one way or another. :)

If you haven't tried me, please do. I always recommend starting with JACOB. Or if you don't want to invest in a series, go for DRINK OF ME. It's a stand alone.

Enjoy,
Hugs and Kitties,
Jacquelyn Frank
