"The Nightwalkers" series book 2,
This review is from: Gideon: The Nightwalkers series: Book 2 (Kindle Edition)
The second novel in this supernatural romance series centres on two demons who appeared significantly in book 1; the ancient and powerful Body Demon Gideon and Magdelegna (Legna) the Mind Demon whom Isabella saved during a Summoning. Despite knowing each other for centuries, both have steered clear of each other for a variety of reasons. It is therefore somewhat of a surprise when they start to Imprint; developing telepathy and additional gifts as their relationship and feelings for each other strengthen. Yet Demon kind still have enemies waiting to pounce and they are targeting the weaker mortals; Isabella and her sister Corrine.
Considering there is a busy plot line, the pace of this book is somewhat slower than I anticipated. There are some exciting action packed moments, plus some very intriguing characters are developed further (namely shifter queen Siena and vampire prince Damien) yet the story line didn't engage me as much as book 1 "Jacob" did. Although I found Legna a great leading lady, I was left wondering why she initially masked how powerful she had become and also questioned why it took her and Gideon centuries to discover they were destined to be together. I did have issues with Gideon at times. His patronising behaviour is explained away due to his age and isolation, and although other characters that know and love him laugh off his attitude, it's a little off putting in a leading man until Legna softens his bluntness.
I still think this is an interesting supernatural romance, but it doesn't have that extra something that really snags my attention. I still however have high hopes and will pursue this series further. 3½ stars
