Rating: 4 Cups
Jackson Waverly is no longer a simple K-9 cop. He would be dead without an ancient Egyptian pharaoh named Menes whose soul now inhabits Jackson's body. Together the two are called a Bodywalker, an ancient race of beings called upon to battle the darkness.
Dr. Marissa Anderson cannot put her finger on exactly what has happened to Jackson, but her psychiatric instincts tell her it is something big. Then a bizarre attack leaves her knowing much more than she ever wanted to about Bodywalkers and other things that go bump in the night. Now she clings to Jackson as the only familiar thing in a world gone mad.
While Jackson/Menes completes the bonding process of a new Bodywalker, he struggles with the knowledge that his beloved queen, Hatshepsut, still waits for a host. The man that Jackson was wants Marissa and no one else. But in order to accept Hatshepsut and become queen of the Bodywalkers, Marissa will have say goodbye to her mortal life and all it entails.
Although very confusing at first, persistent readers will be richly rewarded with a fast paced and interesting story. The concept of Jackson and Menes occupying the same body while wooing and loving Marissa is most intriguing. It will be interesting to see just where this series goes and how deeply it ties into the mythos in Ms. Frank's other novels.
