Adam: The Nightwalkers By Jacquelyn Frank – Review 4.5 of 5

Book description: Hunted by magic, beset by evil, the Nightwalkers face their darkest hour yet. And when the unthinkable happens, only one legendary male has the power, the will, to save them: Adam.

From their first tantalizing touch, Jasmine knows he is different. What other lover could unlock her tight control, flood vampire senses jaded by a lifetime of decadent self indulgence? Centuries ago, when he disappeared without a trace, she had given up hope of ever fulfilling the promise of incomparable passion. But here he is, against the very laws of nature, ready to bring down their most vicious enemy, ready to bring her blood to the boiling point. . .if she will only let him

Review: Jacquelyn Frank has a knack for writing a great prologue. Just after a few pages into Adam we come across the death of a beloved character in the series, and yes I was in shocked and I almost yelled “what the heck is going on”. Don’t let this shocking development fool you, keep reading my friend keep reading.

Adam is book # 5 of the Nightwalkers Series by Jacquelyn Frank. This is the story of Jasmine and Adam. Adam was one of the most anticipated books of the Nightwalkers Series, Yes we loved and enjoyed Noah but it is Adam that has created a commotion throughout the web. As a Jacquelyn Frank’s fan I am happy to say this is a hot, exciting, and kickass story. As every other story of the Nightwalkers series this story has tons action, it also has its share of evil, sex and love.

We got to know Jasmine in Noah’s book. We learned about her hatred for Syreene, Damien’s mate, but we also know her as a strong character filled with regrets and desires. What do we know about Adam? We know Adam disappeared 400 years ago and was never seen again. We also know he is Jacob’s brother, the enforcer capable of maintaining order and the one person Jacob looked up to for guidance.

Though I loved Adam, I felt there was a lack of development in the story, Adam and Jasmine interaction is minimal compared to the other books in the series. I felt their story and interaction was rushed. The reading went fast, the action is non-stop, but the character development is lacking a bit. I am hoping there is a lot more to this series, the book left me with tons of questions and pretty much in a “HUH” kind of state.

Adam is sexy and the chemistry between him and Jasmine is great. They are strong, smart and downright kickass heroes in their own sexy and hot kind of way. Their combination is dangerous yet funny. Jacquelyn is still the same witty, talented and funny author that we all love.

I hope we don’t have to wait another 3 years for another book. Jacquelyn is an amazing author. This book is best if read as part of the series. But if you are starting the Nightwalker Series now, start with Jacob book #1 of the Nightwalkers Series which you can buy here.

Great read, fun sexy and tons of action it totally deserves 4 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ½ (hearts)

  • Hi Jacquelyn,

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Yes there was plenty happening in this book, but I understand that is exactly what made the story so great. Thanks again for stopping by, looking forward to reading your next book (assuming there is another one coming soon, I know I know you deserve some time off).

    Thank you for the excellent work you do.

  • Thanks for the review! I’m sorry you felt the characters were underdeveloped and I suppose that could be attributed to the fact that there was so much going on in the book all at once and the nature of the story could leave that perception. But as I understand it your overall impression was a very good one! Thanks again.

    Hugs and Kitties
    Jacki Frank
