Jacquelyn Frank's "Nightwalkers" series continues with Noah, the King of the Demons and a character who's been rather sketchy in previous books (Jacob, Gideon, Elijah, Damien) but who now gets a story to himself. As with the other books in this series, the central plot of Noah is a man finding his fated mate, in this case the rather unusual human named Kestra. Noah, as King, is dedicated to protecting his people from their enemies, both human and Nightwalker, but he is beginning to fear his own nature - as Samhain approaches, a time when some demons lose control, he worries that this will happen to him. It doesn't help that he's been dreaming of a mystery woman for the last six months - he doesn't know her name or anything about her but he can't get her out of his mind.

When Noah discovers that he has been dreaming of his imprinted mate, a woman who knows nothing about him, he sets about finding her. But things aren't going to go smoothly for Noah, he may find he's too late to reach her, even if he does find her she may not want to become part of his life, and what if she's been too damaged by events in her past to feel comfortable with him?

Jacquelyn Frank's writing style is interesting because although not that much actually happens in her books, somehow they don't drag. We spend a great deal of time following conversations between Noah and Kestra and also some of the other characters whom we've met in previous books. There were a couple of moments when the 'goodies' had to fight against the 'baddies' in this book but that was a fairly minor part of the overall story, we were focusing much more on the relationship between Noah and Kestra.

After the very good story about Damien and Syreena I was full of expectation for this book. Now the Demon King, Noah, is in the focus of the author. The beginning was for me a little bit disappointet but as soon as Kes is in his world and stop with her childish behaviour, the story is very very good. Well and then the love story between them is voll of amazing erotic, many funny discussions and romantic. So the beginning was not so good but that doesn't matter because of the fantastic story in summarize.

The backgroundstory isn't so full of tension and action as in the last book, but it doesn't matter because the love story was so good. Well, I was a little sad that so many demons and vampire died in this book. Because some grazy vampire want to gain the power of Syreena and the Demon King, there is a big battle in the end of the book. And it's difficult for Noah to handle this because it's time of Samhain and as you read the storys before you know the importance of this date.

Well known character like Jacob, Bella, Elijah, Jasmin, Damien and Syreena are in the book, too. Jasmin is jealousy as always and sometimes a little bitch. I don't like her.

Kes is a very strong and independent woman and for Noah it is difficult to win her heart. They have to handle with the past of them both and some trouble as a effect of Kes' negative past. But all in all they are a perfect couple in the end, as the others, too.

All in all the book was very good, full of passion, erotic and tension as always. I hope there will be an additional book in this series.

HASH(0x92406f5c) von 5 Sternen End of series? I think not!! 6. September 2008
Von krissy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Did I miss the memo that said this is the last book in the series? After reading all the other reviews I guess I must have! Maybe, because I didn't go into this book thinking it was the last, I wasn't as disappointed with it. I'm used to the fact that once an author starts making big money on a series it never wraps-up. (Christine Feehan, Sherrilyn Kenyon, etc.) They just keep adding new demensions and aspects that can keep it going forever if they choose. The fact that she didn't even touch on the main conflict with Ruth and her band of evil-doers tells me she's not done with this thing by a long shot! It's no accident that so many loose ends were left. Believe me, She's by no means done with the vampires or lycanthropes. Those storylines were left wide open! I think through those series we'll be seeing a lot more of our demon friends! She may take a hiatus from these storylines to expound on the shadowdwellers story (which I'm looking forward to) but she'll be back!

That being said, I actually liked the book pretty well. I did take off one star for the repetitiveness of the love scenes. the first one was great but, like a previous reviewer, I found myself skimming through the rest of them. I also thought there were parts that could have moved a little faster. But I've come to expect that from this author. I don't think this book was any different from the rest in the series in that regard.

All in all, this was my favorite book of the demon series. (I think Damien was probably my overall favorite, and that was about vampires and lycanthropes, although she at least brought Ruth into it!) She did a great job touching on what was going on with our friends from past books but not letting it overwhelm Noah and Kestra's story. (i.e. J.R. Ward in Lover Enshrined.)So if you've been a fan of this series I don't have to tell you to read this book, I'm sure you already have or will!

And for those of you that are worried she's ending the series without tieing up those loose ends, never fear! This series will never end! Like the rest, She'll just keep adding new demensions until it gets populer enough to start releasing them in hardback!

HASH(0x91d84144) von 5 Sternen Being King doesn't guarantee a great story 17. März 2009
Von Michelle888 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Shortly after reading NOAH, I decided to check out Jacquelyn Frank's website as I was eager to see what the next book in the series was. To my astonishment, her blog mentioned that this was to be the last book in the Nightwalker series and she is continuing the saga with the Shadowdwellers. Whoa! Did I read that correctly? If this was to be the last in the series, I would have thought that the Nightwalkers would have gone out with a bang - literally. You know, blow up the bad guys and all that. Instead, this was a sappy read and not what I expected for the Demon King.

I have read the first four books and have always been intrigued by Noah. Reading about his struggles and constant fear for his people and knowing how forlorn he felt watching those closest to him find their Imprinted mate, it was almost an immense relief to see him finally meet his queen. I actually psyched myself up before I picked up this novel. I really thought I was going to be in for an amazing romance and some huge battle scenes based on the length of the book. Yet, shortly after the introduction of Kestra, I began to feel detached. Fair enough that the author wanted a strong female for Noah. And I could also appreciate Kestra's attitude in view of her past. However, Noah seemed weak in this novel and seemed almost like a shadow of his former self. I struggled with the central characters' relationship and found their conversations exasperating after a while. I get it, she's highly independent and he's trying his utmost to give her room to adjust to their ways, but do we have to be told about it over and over again?

What happened to the renegade Demon? I was expecting an explosive, earth shattering battle not several pages of sex scenes to be followed five pages later by more sex scenes. And why did everyone seemed so despondent? I felt disappointed by the time I finished the book. Not because it was a bad novel - indeed, there were some good moments - but because too many things were left unresolved. Perhaps answers will be found on the Shadowdweller series, but I was quite deflated by the ending of NOAH that I'm currently reluctant to pick up ECSTASY. As much as I enjoyed the Nightwalker series in general, I am moving on to another author for the meantime until the next two Shadowdweller books have been released so I can get an idea of what that series is like.

HASH(0x91ff0bac) von 5 Sternen All Sex;No Action! 6. Oktober 2008
Von M. Dominguez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book was just one long sex scene, with a few breaks
in between to continue the same empty repetitious conversation.

There was no plot, no story and just one sex scene after another. It reminded me of Kresley Cole's last book. I really love J. Frank and KC but their last books were strange. Lacking in plot and completely under-delivering
any type of story.

"Noah" mentions nothing of Ruth and really has no villians. And makes little mention of the other characters that had been written about in previous books in the Nightwalker series. So you will find out who Noah ends up with and that is it!!!

Also, each sex scene was about 20 pages long!!! It would end and then Noah and Kestra would talk about how much they wanted each other..."I can't believe you want me again!" and then we would have to go through 20 more pages of the same OLD THING!!!!!

It is hard to have invested in a whole series and not read one ,So you might as well read this,just get ready to SKIM!SKIM!SKIM!

HASH(0x92096cfc) von 5 Sternen Curtain call, the Nightwalker series closes after giving Magnificent Demon King Noah his turn in the spotlight 3. September 2008
Von melindeeloo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Longer than the previous Nightwalker books, "Noah" was a bit slow to get going with dream sequences, a background fairy tale (which did have a significant tie-in later in the story), and one incident that is repeated three times. But hang in there, when we finally get past that point Noah himself, though a bit frazzled by the Imprinting, is every thing we could have hoped for from having seen him in previous books. His mate Kestra, a determined strategist and mercenary warrior who has cultivated extreme bravery in the face of any non-heart related danger, is a great match for Noah. Having watched the patient, logical, and controlled Noah throughout the Nightwalker series it was great to see his struggle and vulnerability as he tries to win the acceptance of his mate-to-be all while fearing the consequences of alienating her especially with the impending loss of control that Samhain promises until he finally acheives the pairing that he has always dreamt of.

With a decent amount of action, the background plot was good, showing the consequences of Damien's discovery in the last book as rogue vampires scheme to collect as many Nightwalker powers as possible, their plots targeting some very significant victims. Also fun and effective were the curtain call performances by past pairs from the previous books, all of our old favorites, Bella, Jacob, Legna, Gideon, Damien and Syreena were back in the action. If you like the steamy stuff there was lots, but for me, Noah and Kes' many love scenes got repetitious. Even though I do like romance in my stories, I found myself skimming after the first few joinings - as sacrilegious as that is for a romance reader to say. This and the slow start dropped my rating a bit.

Noah's book completes the Nightwalker series, but even with the final bows from the continuing cast there was still enough stirred up in the Frank's world that it didn't really feel like the end. Add to that Ruth's absence and the lack of resolution with Jasmine and I suspect the larger story arc will continue as Frank switches from Demons to the Shadowdwellers when her new series starts with Ecstasy: The Shadowdwellers.

***synopsis***
Since Noah's sister left his house taking with her the calming influence that had allowed the demon King to face the heightened emotion and stresses that Beltane and Samhain pose to unmated demons, Noah finds it harder and harder to maintain his control, his honor and his very sanity. And should the powerful Fire Demon lose the battle, the price to those around him would be astronomical. Now his his sleep is haunted by sensual images of a women who smells of cotton candy and has hair like white silk. The dreams of his hidden druid mate stoke his desire and his frustration, leading him closer and closer to breaking his increasingly tenuous control, as another Samhain looms. But even as he finally overcomes his fears and pride to approach the former human who can help him to search out his mate, it may be already too late and when a demon as powerful as Noah caught in the grips of grief and madness it is a fearsome thing indeed.

HASH(0x92a08a08) von 5 Sternen Seriously.... Is that what it has come to? 6. November 2008
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
What a disappointment. We follow this whole series to get to the story about Noah and he is reduced to a whining sniveling brat. His heroine is no better. I wanted to smack her upside the head so many times it wasn't funny. I found myself reading, just to finish the book.

There wasn't any real chemistry between them. He wasn't the controlled Fire Demon that we all know and love. He was a mess. I could have done without the whole love story and focused on the plot to find Ruth and her band of witches.

I would say, get this from the used book store because it does tie up some loose ends but read on a rainy day. Don't waste gorgeous weather reading it.
