From the back cover:
They’re called the Nightwalkers—proud, ancient beings who live in the shadows, existing just beyond the human world. But there are also dangerous humans who hunt them—necromancers who use the blackest magic to manipulate them. And for a Demon named Gideon, the battle against these evil forces will soon be all too personal… As A Healer, He Knows Her Body.
But It’s Her Heart He Wants.
For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons—and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdalegna, the Demon King’s sister, in a wild embrace. Horrified by his lack of control, he left her wanting and furious—and then exiled himself for the better part of a decade. Now, with necromancers threatening his people—and Magdalegna nearly their victim—Gideon must face another truth. He and the beautiful, stubborn Magdalegna are destined to be together, to share a love as deep and old as time itself. But first he needs to regain her trust. Then he’ll have to save her life…
Every night holds secrets.
My thoughts can be summed up in a word: Dull.
While I didn't lurrrveeeee Jacob, I really thought it was a great premise. Frank is the first author (that I've read, anyway) that has written Demons as protaganists. So it was very intriguing to me. When I read Gideon, I went into it with high hopes. My bad. The normal trend is that the series gets better with each book. Not so with the Nightwalkers. While trying to cram Gideon and Legna's story in the pages, Frank also managed to re-tell a mini version of Jacob. I'm sorry, but if a reader decides they're going to skip the first book, that's their bad. Because of the length of time between relases, I understand the need to touch on certain things from previous books that might be pertinent to the current story. What I don't want is to go over the whooolllllleeeee story again. I already know what happened to Bella and Jacob. I know what happened to Corrine and Kane. I want to know more about Gideon, the character that was so intiriguing in Jacob. Too bad we didn't get that.
Basically I skimmed. Gideon and Legna were boring. They were a boring couple. After years of avoiding each other, suddenly they realize that they're mates and all is well. Didn't work for me. I was more interested in Bella and Jacob in this book. At least Frank introduced a few new characters. That should prove to be interesting in the future.
On a sidenote, as soon as I can figure out how to do a cut, I'll include spoilers. But as a spoiler hater, I'll abstain this time.
In keeping to the amazon star system, I give Gideon 2.5 out of 5 stars.
