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.
First review of 2014! YAY! Okay, so how can I best describe this book? Hmmm...well it was a good book, but it was no where near being a great book, and it was a far leap from joining the books on my favorites shelf.
The whole world of Nightwalkers, Bodywalkers, and Night Angels (and other magical beings) was interesting, but the main character Leo was kind of annoying to me. His emotional state was understandable and for awhile I was understanding and accepting of his emotional baggage, but then it just got kind of annoying reading about this same old pain story over and over again.
I never really bought into the whole love connection between Leo and the Night Angel, Faith, either. It didn't feel real to me (as real as a love connection between a human and an angel can be I guess haha).
This title will be available on January 7th 2014 for purchase on kindle and mass market paperback.
