New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank continues her scorching and sensual new series set in the world of the Nightwalkers, where alluring entities known as Bodywalkers are the vanguards against the raging forces of darkness.
As a mercenary, Leo Alvarez has signed on for a lot—but he never signed on for his best friend becoming host to the soul of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. Jackson is now inhabited by a Bodywalker, and Leo is forced to grapple with a realm of supernatural beings far more dangerous than anything he’s ever encountered.
But when Jackson is wounded by an attack from a demon god, Leo must team up with another supernatural creature—a Night Angel—to save his friend from utter destruction. With skin as black as midnight, hair as white as snow, and a body of pure perfection, the Night Angel arouses a burning desire in Leo, even as he refuses to be intimidated by her power—or the power of those who would destroy his friend. An unusual alliance is forged, electrified by sexual temptation, and together the two must unite their strengths to bring down a supreme evil.
In Forsaken, we have the delectable story of our lovely Leo. Now in the previous books he has always been a bit elusive but I have loved his friendship with Jackson/Menes. But In this book we see how he is torn. He has just gone through a terrible ordeal of being tortured over and over again and despises Nightwalkers. Now that he is on the road to recovery, he has many things he needs to come to terms with including his best friend being a Nightwalker. But when Jackson is injured, he joins forces with a Night Angel and find a way to save his friends life. But he discovers a passionate love with the mysterious and beautiful Faith. They go on a journey together of excitement, danger and desire.
I had a blast with this book, and the reader goes through a variety of emotions with this one. Leo is a hero that just calls out to you. You see that the road to healing can be treacherous sometimes and difficult. And oh poor Jackson…he is one of my favorite characters of the series. So it broke my heart when you see what happens to him. But I adored Leo for having the courage to do what it takes to save his friends life even if he has mixed feelings about him. The romance between Leo and Faith was truly wonderful to see unravel. At first they have a chemistry but don’t act on it till later. But I admired the way they come together at the right moment. A truly fascinating and thrilling tale to a fantastic series!!
