The Bodywalkers have their mythology based in ancient Egypt, when their mortal body dies their soul returns to the Ether, which is the place between life and death. Once they have recovered from their "death" they are able to hitch-hike back to Earth and into a new body by possesing a human at the moment of their death. Both parties have to be in agreement though, and over a period of time the two souls will merge allowing them to share a body.
Following an attempted murder, Docia is introduced to a world she never expected existed. Raised by her brother, Jackson, and his friend Leo after the death of her parents, Docia has led a pretty uneventful life so why are people suddenly trying to kill her? The melding of Docia with a Bodywalker occurs after the first attempt to kill her, this invites even more bad guys to try and kill her, luckily for her it also introduces a protector in the form of Ram/Vincent who believes her to be hosting his Queen. Along the way we meet new foes and allies, the plot has many twists and a forbidden romance that raises the heat level.
It's a promising beginning to the series, like all first in series books with such a huge mythology there is a large amount of info thrown at you in this book, it was a little hard to get my head around at times. I was greatful for the distraction that Jackson provided and I'm looking forward to getting to know him better.

The story is quite slow moving, but well written. I did'nt enjoy it as much as the other Nightwalker books.
Well I have thoroughly enjoyed this book, and in fact I am 80% through book 2 Forever: The World of Nightwalkers after this book finished I just had to carry on reading.
This is the first book in the series and we are introduced to Docia.
Docia is an interesting character, and I can see that she is a bit of a timid mouse on the outside to start with but I love her attitude, fashion style - I love op shops - I think I will call them regeneration shops now too - such a cool word for them.
Docia is the sister of K9 Cop Jackson, and when Docia is reported dead after a hit and run he is distraught, I think Jackson although he isn't the main character in this book, caught my interest the most. But miraculously Docia survives, but her life is far from safe, and when she is attacked again Docia ends up catching the attention of 'Ram' and the adventure kicks into high gear.
I don't want to give too much away, but I love how the world is based on Egyptian Myths and Gods,
I also love Jacquelyn Frank's idea of how Egyptian burial rituals come into play with the Bodywalkers creation. no spoilers though, you need to read this book to find out how they come into being.
With bodywalkers, gargoyles and who knows what else could make an appearance you will be glued to this book.
Right back to finishing book 2...
