The premise to the story is a good one. Apep, a god, has been brought back by Kamenwati, who is a Bodywalker from Egypt. Kamen made a grave mistake in doing this and takes it upon himself to break the curse and get the twelve nations together to fight Apep.
One of the first he meets is a Wraith, a half-breed named Vieve. She has a self- loathing much like Kamen does and they bond. He feels emotions towards her that he hadn’t felt in centuries. I loved how this relationship builds; the telling was very believable.
Where I felt the story was lacking was the huge buildup of this confrontation and how fast it happens. So much time is spent getting to know all these characters and come time for the climax and I felt it was anticlimactic. Kamen and Vieve do carry the story fairly well which helps the story not fall completely flat. I found the different paranormal creatures described really well and were made to be interesting. The formatting was great and no huge grammar errors were noted.
author Jacquelyn Frank comes the final chapter in the Nightwalkers saga! As the
momentous showdown with a powerful demon unfolds, a passionate encounter breaks
the ultimate taboo.Kamen is a
Bodywalker, an ancient soul reborn in one human host after another. He’s also a
prisoner of his own kind: for it was Kamen who released Apep, the deadly god
who threatens the existence of their world. To atone for this grievous error,
Kamen accepts an urgent mission: to convince the other nations of the
Nightwalkers to set aside their centuries-old conflicts and band together. If
he fails, all will be lost. And no tribe presents a greater challenge than the
Wraiths, the spectral beings who are feared and despised for their lethal
deathtouch.Kamen makes first contact with a stunning, ghostly pale beauty named Geneviève.
Part Wraith and part human scorned as a half-breed, Viève shares the hunger
for redemption—and for connection. Her scintillating touch holds the kiss of
death, and yet it makes Kamen feel more alive than ever. Soon his lips are pressed
against hers, sending Viève into fits of desire and forging a bond that
breaches the divide between them. Now they must unite all the Nightwalkers,
from Vampire and Shadowdweller to Djynns, and fast—for Apep is ready for war.
