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.)

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!

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!

Jacquelyn Frank continues to weave her complex Nightwalker world in Elijah, bringing the Lycanthropes and their Queen, Siena into the erotic weft. We had some hints about the Elijah-Siena attraction in Gideon at the Battle of Beltane when several Nightwalker species came together against the threat of stinky necromancers, demented demons bent on revenge and human hunters and magic practitioners. We also gain another species, the Mistrals which roughly correspond to mythological Sirens. Their song hypnotizes all who hear it leaving them at the mercy of the Siren. They can kill or cure.

Purple prose applies to the romantic encounters between Elijah and Siena the Lycanthrope Queen. And, while Frank and Zebra both state online is that the first seven pages of the book, while written into the novel's own story arc, are prologue and back story. Thank goodness, because otherwise the gravely injured Elijah would be mentally and lushly spewing more information than an encyclopaedia even as his life force drains away (ie. he is bleeding out):

QUOTE<<Even without training, at their hearts all Demons were essentially battle ready beasts. He believed that.

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.
