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.

So many emotions!!!
Fantastic book! This is the third book in the series "The World of Nightwalkers". Leo Alvarez, a mercenary, is thrown into a world he never imagined could be real. He does not hide his disgust and hatred for all Nightwalkers. It is Faith's job, as a Night Angel, to guide lost souls to their destiny but when she is called upon by her father to help this group of Nightwalkers and one human, she must go. She must prevent certain events from happening and change the future and she must do it with the aid of Leo Alvarez, who cannot stand her kind. Leo and Faith embark on this crazy adventure and Leo learns more than he wanted to about her and the Nightwalkers she's helping.
Jacquelyn Frank never disappoints! This was just another great book in the long line of great books she writes. While reading this book I went through many different emotions along with the characters. You just know what an amazing book you're reading when you feel like you are in the story watching everything unfold right before your eyes. Character growth happened at a steady pace and the story unfolded perfectly! There was anger, cruelty, prejudice, love at its purest, hatred, a lot of self discovery, and the beginning of forgiveness. I can't wait to see what the future holds for Jacquelyn Frank's The World of Nightwalkers.
