"ECSTASY has it all"
Asla Townsend gets into a car accident on New Year's Eve
and awakens alone in a darkened world. Everything runs as
before the accident, but there are no people. Then,
suddenly, two men appear, and they are sword fighting.
After one of the men kills the other, Asla uses her
abilities to save the wounded man's life. Trace, a
powerful member of the Shadowdweller race is taken aback,
when Asla sees him, communicates, and heals him in
shadowscape; which is another dimension outside of
realscape. Most humans trapped in shadowscape are like
wraiths and can't see the Shadowdwellers. Trace is drawn
to the strange human but must, also, focus on a plot to
overthrow his government.
In ECSTASY, Ms. Frank departs from her Nightwalkers series
and creates a series with a more erotic feel. While
ECSTASY takes place in the same world as the Nightwalker
series, it focuses on the Shadowdweller race and their
unique and interesting culture and society. Ms. Frank
raises the heat level in her latest book. Those
Shadowdwellers are a lusty bunch!
ECSTASY has it all-- great word-building, political
intrigue, likeable characters, and a hero and heroine worth
rooting for. This book is highly recommended.
