Sienna is a lycanthrope and shape shifter who can turn into a type of cat called a catamount. She is the queen of the lycanthropes. She has admired Elijah from afar and is in some way grateful to him for killing her father who kept the demons and lycanthropes at war for many years.
Elijah is the Captain of the Demon warriors who has an affinity for the element Air. Like Sienna he has admired the lycanthrope queen and her work towards having a peaceful relationship with his people. He finds her incredibly beautiful.
When Elijah is drawn into a trap by two renegade demons and several human necromancers, he is mortally wounded. Sienna comes upon him in the forest and for the sake of the peace she has helped to cultivate between their two peoples and her gratefulness to him for helping to end the war by killing her father, she does what she can to help heal him. It is not long after Sienna begins caring for Elijah that they both begin feeling a very strong attraction to each other. But Sienna has vowed never to marry because her husband would rule in the event of her death and he might plunge her people into war as her father did. So she has remained celibate her entire life. However, fate has a way of changing people’s plans, and even though it is forbidden Elijah and Sienna take each other as mates. Sienna knows her people will never accept a demon king, and so they part company. Will Elijah be able to convince Sienna he has no interest in ruling her people, or plunging them all into another war? Will she accept her love for him or will they forever stay separated?
All I can say is WOW! What a fantastic new series! This is the first book in the Nightwalker series that I have read by Ms. Frank and I have to say I am very impressed. Her world building is beyond compare, and her explanations of the different nightwalkers and their strengths, as well as, weaknesses make it very easy to understand the world she has created. The hot and steamy emotion-filled sex scenes make this book a rare gem in the world of paranormal romance. The characters are very realistic and even though their world is fantasy, they are larger than life and seem to almost leap from the pages. I plan on getting the rest of this series and then staying caught up from now on. This is one book you do not want to miss!
