Kamen is a Bodywalker, an ancient soul reborn in one human host after another. He’s also a prisoner of his own kind: for it was Kamen who released Apep, the deadly god who threatens the existence of their world. To atone for this grievous error, Kamen accepts an urgent mission: to convince the other nations of the Nightwalkers to set aside their centuries-old conflicts and band together. If he fails, all will be lost. And no tribe presents a greater challenge than the Wraiths, the spectral beings who are feared and despised for their lethal deathtouch.

Kamen makes first contact with a stunning, ghostly pale beauty named Geneviève. Part Wraith and part human, scorned as a half-breed, Viève shares the hunger for redemption—and for connection. Her scintillating touch holds the kiss of death, and yet it makes Kamen feel more alive than ever. Soon his lips are pressed against hers, sending Viève into fits of desire and forging a bond that breaches the divide between them. Now they must unite all the Nightwalkers, from Vampire and Shadowdweller to Djynns, and fast—for Apep is ready for war.

REVIEW: Nightwalker is book 5 and final book in The World Of Nightwalker series. The highly anticipated book Nightwalker is Kamen’s story, the story that tells his shot a redemption. I loved the whole series so much but this story in specific brought in all those other characters and their qualities into play. The fight against evil was reaching a high and it was in this story that it had to come to an end.

The author did a superb job bringing all these characters together without making their importance redundant. The significance of their appearance only intensified as the story developed. What I enjoyed the most is how the world of the Nightwalker/Bodywalkers entwined and their interaction occurred. The way in which it all developed was smooth and nicely crafted. The author was detailed enough to entice and provoke our mind into crafting our idea of what each character was feeling, from the frustration of their inabilities to the power that flowed within them.

Kamen’s slowly acceptance of his mistakes as well as the way in which he forced himself to change was beautifully explored. His need to change the outcome of what might’ve been an absolute destruction of his kind bored deeply in his makeup and soon realized he was the key to facilitate the destruction of Apep.  While Kamen wasn’t entirely used to acceptance and forgiveness he would slowly accept his role as a key person to put all the evil to rest while also making sure he would survive this attempt. I also enjoyed how well Karem accepted his responsibility  without looking like a martyr.

Frank managed to give us a story that was filled with intense moments & emotions. I enjoyed how Kamen and Vieve’s relationship was based on a strong foundation even if it didn’t developed slowly. They trusted each other knowing that it was necessary if they wanted to make their plan work. They also dived into their need of exploration and sensuality without putting aside the importance of their quest. A quest that put Kamen on a path to self value and acceptance. What I loved the most about this story is that though it brought the end of a series it also made the reader feel as if there were not loops left open or questions unanswered. It ended and it gave us closure. I enjoyed it all, because overall the series as well as the story gave us the happily ever after we craved for each of these characters. Kamen was one of my favorite villain/hero crossover and one I will not tire of recommend.

If you are yet to read the Nightwalker I can’t recommend it enough  – do not delay you will encounter great plot and fantastic characters.
