URBAN FANTASY ROMANCE REVIEW: The Nightwalkers 6: Adam - Jacquelyn Frank

Release Date: 25/10/11


Nightwalkers dwell in the shadows; they live in a world where every night holds secrets. Hunted by magic, beset by evil, the Nightwalkers face their darkest hour yet. When the unthinkable happens, only one legendary male has the power and the will to save them: Adam.

From their first tantalising touch, Jasmine knows Adam is different. What other lover could unlock her tight control, and flood vampire senses jaded by a lifetime of decadent self indulgence?

Centuries ago, when he disappeared without a trace, she had given up hope of ever fulfilling the promise of incomparable passion. But here he is, against the very laws of nature, ready to bring down their most vicious enemy, ready to bring her blood to the boiling point . . . if she will only let him.


To be honest with you the book blurb didn’t fill me with confidence that this would be a title for me, especially as I was dropping in on Book Six of the series but that said there were some interesting concepts and idea’s that were a lot of fun for me to explore as a reader. The lead character is one that will charm the reader in not only his old fashioned attitude but also as he has to learn how to cope with the world today from his old perspective and draw his own conclusions as he tries to marry his own prejudices with modern sensibilities.

It’s quirky, it has some real moments of tension and of course the love aspect works pretty well throughout (although at times a little overly sentimental for me personally.) Add to this a very well thought out plot, some cracking twists and of course something that will appeal to a broad spectrum of Urban Fantasy Romance readers. If the others in the series are constructed this well, I’ll have to look into them when time allows.
