Gideon- Jacquelyn Frank (book 2)

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 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.
Oh man where to begin... again I thought this was a great story but jeez my poor dictionary is worn out from having to look up so many words. You know I am not a dumb person nor am I a really smart person but jeez these books are “wordy” The romance and love is completely there for me and so is the action but honestly I had to skim over a few paragraphs picking out a few words without reading the whole thing and I actually got what she was trying to say with only reading a few words.
I liked Magdelegna from day one in Jacob’s book, she is not this little whiney helpless female even though she has been sheltered and taken care of her whole life. She is the youngest sister to the Demon King Noah (and I like Noah, can’t wait to read his book) Legna is a Mind Demon and a very strong one for her age. During the book you find out why and how she became as strong as she is at her young age. I say young age but she is over 200 years old but to the demons that is still young. Legna becomes best friends with Bella who is mated to Jacob from the first book. Thirteen years ago Legna kissed Gideon during the moon phase and when he realized what was happening her backed away from her and called her a child. This hurt Legna so she avoided him ever sense then but she had help staying away from him since he put himself into self-exile after being caught with a human woman after he was with Legna. 
Gideon is the oldest of their kind, he is a Body Demon. He is able to heal others and is considered a medic which is like a doctor. Being over 1000 years old her thought he would never find his mate due to what he did in the past and with the war with the Druids. When he realized he had Imprinted with Legna he felt he did not deserve her and at first was not sure if he was capable of loving someone. Gideon is straight to the point, matter of fact and a demon that doesn’t lie. He doesn’t consider others feelings and thinks by telling them the truth he could not be hurting anyone. Once they both open their minds and hearts to each other they know they are perfect for each other. I really enjoyed seeing him open up to her and get a sense of humor. The story is so full of their romance at the beginning I was starting to worry we might not have a bad guy in this book but the necromancers showed up at the end for a full on battle. We also met the Queen of the Lycanthropes, Siena who met her mate in this book but he just doesn’t know it yet.
My Rating: 4
