Romance Junkies review of The Nightwalkers: Gideon!
on June 3, 2007
The oldest of the old, Gideon has taken his place on the Demon Council. Making the never ending battle between the Demons and the necromancers his own, Gideon is overwhelmed and surprised at how close the hostilities threaten the very existence of someone near and dear to him, a person that Gideon has spent centuries trying to resist; Magdelegna.
Magdelegna has been restless since her near fatal Summoning months past. At odds with her life and unsure of her place in the world, she allows Gideon, a Body Demon healer to scan her. What he finds changes both their lives. Though her future is hazy and unclear, Legna is very sure of one thing; the unbridled emotion she has always felt for Gideon is not something she is willing to ignore any longer.
When the conflict between the Demons and their would-be executioners occurs closer than Gideon and Legna ever thought possible, it will take every ounce of power and strength they have to overcome the vile stench of betrayal and evil that surrounds them.
From my initial introduction to Gideon in THE NIGHTWALKERS: JACOB, the first book of this series, I was instantly intrigued with this particular Demon. I found it very enlightening when Gideon, having voluntarily exiled himself eight years prior, came above-ground when called by Legna. I felt the instant connection between these two characters in the first installment, and reading GIDEON, I'm glad my intuition didn't fail me. Additionally, I was absorbed by the emotions and passions of GIDEON. Though I found his intelligence charismatic, it was his love for Legna that drew me the most. He tried to bury it deep and deny its existence, but it was readily apparent during the times they spent together. Legna's attraction to Gideon was a bit closer to the surface. He made her heart pound and her breathing erratic. Just as it should be.
GIDEON, releasing on May 27, 2007, is the second book of The Nightwalkers series that began with JACOB. Weaving a brilliant world of supernatural beings, smooth steamy sensuality and heart-wrenching emotions, Ms. Frank has produced a delightfully engrossing series that has completely captivated me. Ms. Frank's ability to bring to life these fine and honorable Demons - characters usually reviled in most books - leaves me on the edge of my seat and anticipating future installments with bated breath. Lucky for me the next book of this series, ELIJAH, is set for release in December. I plan to be the first in line to get my copy!
