Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Gideon by Jacquelyn Frank
Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?!
They're called the Nightwalkers - proud, ancient beings who live in the shadows, existing just beyond the human world. But there are also dangerous humans who hunt them - necromancers who use the blackest magic to manipulate them. And for a Demon named Gideon, the battle against these evil forces will soon be all too personal...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 Magdalegna, 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 Magdalegna nearly their victim - Gideon must face another truth. He and the beautiful, stubborn Magdalegna 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..
Gideon was another win for me. I admit, he loved Jacob more, but it was pretty close. Gideon is a powerful, acient of the the demon race, the oldest still alive. I knew from the start it was going to be much different than reading Jabobs thoughts. Gideon has lived so long, too long to really remember what it is like to love and feel. He's use to keeping everything personal bottled up, even from himself. It takes Magdelegna (Legna) to sooth him, and even that wasn't easy.
After reading Jacobs story I was dying to know what Gideon and Legna's past was. Why was Legna so hostile towards him, and how would their story prevale. I was excited to get into it, and was satisified with such a great tale these two have made. I'm a sucker for mysterious, lonely male characters, and Gideon is certianlly that.
Legna was also a great character. She's the sister of the Demon alpha named Noah(Who's story I'm BEGGING to read!) She's the most beautiful demoness, with a great personility and a calming pressence. She's also a mind demon, the baby of the family and pretty much misjudged. She grows beautifully in this story, and I hope to see more of them throughout the series.
As series go, this is a new favorite for me. I look forward to each new book, and recommed it to all paranormal romance lovers!
