"Ms. Frank creates a marvelous world"

Magdelegna, sister of the demon king, has been restless and her powers have grown very rapidly since she was taken by a necromancer. Only with the aid of a Druid friend, was Magdelegna able to keep from turning into the monster of human legend. Necromancers use black magic to control demons, after learning their true name--this turns the demons into hideous monsters. Because she fears her run-in with the necromancer has changed her, Magdelegna hides her increased powers from everyone. When Gideon, an ancient and powerful demon healer, senses Magdelegna's turmoil, he offers to help. To the surprise of Magdelegna and Gideon, they become imprinted on each other. To be imprinted is rare and special among demonkind--the couple that is imprinted can draw power from each other and read each others thoughts. Needless to say, Magdelegna needs time to adjust to the swift changes in her life, and Gideon is willing to give her that time. Unfortunately, danger is lurking in the form of the necromancers and an unknown enemy among the Nightwalkers.

I have been waiting impatiently for GIDEON after enjoying JACOB so much, and Ms. Frank doesn't disappoint. In fact, GIDEON is my favorite of the two books, probably because I love Gideon's character. Gideon is ancient, powerful, and keeps his emotions bottled up while always trying to be logical. Magdelegna, a powerful empath, senses the hidden depths to Gideon. Even though, she , at first, takes him at face value and avoids him at all costs.

Ms. Frank creates a marvelous world, in which, Nightwalkers roam the Earth. Nightwalkers consist of demons, vampires, Lycans, and Shadowdwellers. All these creatures have their own societies, politics and squabbles amongst themselves, but the necromancers pose a great threat to them all. I love Ms. Frank's Nightwalker books, in fact, it ranks right up there with my Dream-Hunter books. Why not add to your keeper shelf and buy a copy of GIDEON.

They’re called the Nightwalkers—proud, ancient beings who live in the shadows, existing just beyond the human world. But there are also dangerous humans who hunt them—necromancers who use the blackest magic to manipulate them. And for a Demon named Gideon, the battle against these evil forces will soon be all too personal…

As A Healer, He Knows Her Body. But It’s Her Heart He Wants.

For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons—and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdelegna, the Demon King’s sister, in a wild embrace. Horrified by his lack of control, he left her wanting and furious—and then exiled himself for the better part of a decade. Now, with necromancers threatening his people—and Magdelegna nearly their victim—Gideon must face another truth. He and the beautiful, stubborn Magdelegna are destined to be together, to share a love as deep and old as time itself. But first he needs to regain her trust. Then he’ll have to save her life…

Every night holds secrets.
