Description from book:

As a healer, he knows her body. But it’s her heart he wants.

For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons – and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdelegna, the Demon King’s sister, in a wild embrace. Horrified by his lack of control, he left her wanting and furious – and then exiled himself for the better part of a decade. Now, with necromancers threatening his people – and Magdelegna nearly their victim – Gideon must face another truth. He and the beautiful, stubborn Magdelegna are destined to be together, to share a love as deep and old as time itself. But first he needs to regain her trust. Then he’ll have to save her life . . .

Every night holds secrets.

My Thoughts:

I found this book quite enjoyable. Frank has created an interesting world of demons, necromancers and magic. I’m not sure that I totally understand the nuances behind the demon/vampire/lycanthrope way of life. However, I am willing to bet that reading the rest of the books in the series would help make things a bit clearer.

Overall, I thought that Gideon and Magdelegna made a great couple. I loved the tension between them at the beginning of the novel – and the way that they were once they gave into their feelings for each other. I am definitely looking forward to reading more about the nightwalkers. I am putting the rest of Frank’s books on my to be read list!
