Review: Forsaken (World of Nightwalkers, Book 3) by Jacquelyn Frank

forsakenReviewed by Lynn Reynolds

In case you are wondering, this book has a Glossary of Terms.

Leo Alvarez has a first scene that’s quite violent but don’t let that stop you from reading this book. You just may not want to be eating anything at the time. Marissa Anderson is still trying to get used to her blending. Her husband, Jackson, is good friends with Leo. Faith is there to help them fix a problem that involves Jackson.

The first chapter shows the reader that this is part of a series that must be read in order. In order to understand the world of the Nightwalkers it is best to not think that this is a stand-alone book. It shows that in order to survive in this world, violence exists. It also had me wondering how hard it must have been for the author to write some of the scenes.

In book two, the reader meets a character that has Down’s syndrome. But for this story, our author has created a character that’s a man in a woman’s body. How interesting – a woman writing as a man who happens to be in a woman’s body. This shows you how creative this author is.


One thing I was glad to see, no matter how short, was that SingSing was back. And she’s still a scene-stealer. Knowing that there is going to be book coming out in April, I’ll have to watch to see if she makes another appearance. Jacquelyn also knows how to take a serious moment and then adds in something that will have you laughing.

The author has written a story that shows to what lengths a friend will go through for someone he cares about even though he is more than human. And even though Leo’s around with those that have some special abilities he does pretty well about keeping up – not bad for a human. And just because we have a couple of characters that are polar opposites doesn’t mean that the reader doesn’t get some really hot sex either.

Leo appears to be the “hero” of this tale but that doesn’t mean that he’s also not an ass – especially where Faith is concerned. Jacquelyn shows her readers that in any world prejudice can exist. It makes you wonder if we will ever get it right. But she also shows that sometimes even stubborn people can change their minds.

I hope you enjoyed this book as much as I did. It mixes just the right amount of suspense, action, and romance into a tale that will keep you hooked from beginning to end. There’s a quick book trailer of Forsaken if you wish to check it out:

Review: Forever (World of Nightwalkers, Book 2) by Jacquelyn Frank

forever jacquelyn frankReviewed by Lynn Reynolds

The prologue is set in the distant past but sets you up for the rest of the book (if not the series).

Dr. Marissa Anderson works for the police. If you read Forbidden, you will remember her. If you didn’t read that book, I would suggest you go back and read it because so much more will make sense in this book if you do. And she has an interesting sister that will have you laughing.

Officer Jackson Waverly is an officer whose partner is a dog. But Jackson isn’t just an ordinary cop. Again, if you don’t read the first book some of this may not be clear. And let the cover be your inspiration on what he may look like.

This was a book that was hard to put down especially when our two main characters have to work a case together. Jackson also has no problem showing Marissa how she affects him. Our author shows how hard it is to blend two people into one. It may even have you question what would you do if you were put in that position.

If you’ve never read Jacquelyn’s work before such as her Shadowdwellers and Nightwalkers series, and you decide that this is the book you want to start with, you may be a little confused about what is going on. But why not stop over to her web site, http://www.jacquelynfrank.com/main.html, and check out all of what she has to offer. And if you have read her other series, this book may give you some incentive to go back and read them all over again.

Review: Forbidden (World of Nightwalkers, Book 1) by Jacquelyn Frank

forbidden jacquelyn frankReviewed by Lynn Reynolds

Docia Waverly has what appears to be a loving, and joking, relationship with her brother Jackson. Hers was an interesting introduction to the reader – Jacquelyn certainly grabbed my attention. In that intro, she has an otherworldly experience. In this New Year, our author has me wondering what would we do if we were in Docia’s situation.

Rami’s first meet and greet with Docia is interesting and not to be missed. Their interaction will have you smiling. Docia won’t put up with anyone giving her any shit, which is great to see. I always love when a couple doesn’t immediately love each other and where one has to warm up to the other.

Make sure to read this book first if you want to stay true to the series. Even though this is Docia’s story, you see the beginnings of Jackson’s story as well. I happened to read Forever first, and so much more makes sense now that I’ve read book one.

One thing that’s a little different with this book is that Jacquelyn has created a special needs character. You will need to decide if he is good or bad. This is not something that we see too often but I applaud her for being so imaginative to think to even do that with one of her characters. And besides that, she adds in a Djynn character, SingSing – folks, she steals every scene she is in. She’ll just make you laugh and I’m hoping she’ll continue to make appearances.

I’ve been following this author’s work since her Shadowdwellers series. She’s an author that will not disappoint. You will find this Nightwalkers series is another must read series especially if you love paranormals.
