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.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
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.

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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
