Noah- Jacquelyn Frank (book 5)

The Nightwalkers have lived in the shadows of our world for centuries, gifted with abilities few humans can comprehend. For Noah, duty is all—until he meets the woman who is his destiny…
As Demon King, Noah is dedicated to protecting his kind from their human and Nightwalker enemies. Yet for six months he has struggled with vivid dreams that threaten his very sanity. Every night he’s tormented by images of a woman both achingly real and tantalizingly beyond his grasp.And his bone-deep need leaves him no choice but to force her to leave the life she’s known and enter a world beyond her imagining…
Every day, Kestra risks her life in perilous missions that veer just shy of the law, but she instinctively knows that the imposingly sensual figure before her is a danger unlike any she’s ever faced.
Kestra has sworn never to trust or need another man, but Noah’s lightest touch scorches her with fevered desire, branding her as his mate, blinding them both to the terrifying truth. For within the ranks of their own people lies an adversary growing in number and power. And nothing and no one will be safe again…
Desire awakens at night…
Oh how I loved Noah from the beginning, to me the author wrote him as a perfect friend, King and all around great guy so to see him slowly come unraveled was fantastic to me. I liked how he knew what was going on with himself but in his heart he just could not admit that he was turning and that the evil was starting to take a hold of him. As a Fire Demon, the most powerful demon of all the demons, & King on top of it everyone thought he would never sway towards the dark side. After years of watching all of his closest friends and even his family find their perfect mates, it's really all he wanted for himself. He knew that he would never be able to rule his people if he turned and he never wanted his best friend Jacob to make the decision to put him down if he did. Noah spends most of his time reading and holding Jacob's infant daughter, so when the betrayal of his actions affect her that is what devastates him the most.
For six months Noah has been dreaming of a human female, they can talk to each other in their dreams and do a whole lot more. Noah never realizes that she could be his mate until he stops dreaming about her, he uses ever means possible to find and save her, no matter the consequences to his life or his friends lives. Once in Noah's world, Kestra's eyes are opened to a whole new life, with even more dangers than in her human life. With Kestra not wanting to open herself up to love she hurts Noah in ways she never knew possible.
I enjoyed the love story in this book and even the parts with the danger, it was an action packed book but I knew what it was going to take to make Kestra open her eyes and heart to him (but I still loved the story)- it was great reading about the other characters from the previous four books. One thing I really liked about the book was the "new" threat to their world, I was getting a little tired of Ruth.
My Rating: 4.5
