Forever (The World of Nightwalkers #2) by Jacquelyn Frank

Forever (The World of Nightwalkers, #2)


After being brought back from death, police officer Jackson Waverly receives the shock of his life: he has become host to a Bodywalker, a spirit that is reborn in flesh and blood, and part of a proud, ancient race that uses its extraordinary gifts to battle dark, evil forces. Jackson’s spirit is a powerful one—none other than the Egyptian pharaoh Menes, who longs to reunite with his eternal love, the Egyptian queen Hatshepsut.
While Menes is obsessed with finding the perfect vessel for his queen, Jackson cannot stop thinking about Dr. Marissa Anderson, the gorgeous precinct shrink who keeps pushing him to confront his grief over the loss of his K-9 partner. But what Marissa really arouses most in Jackson is intense desire, which is exactly what Menes is looking for. To fight a great enemy, pharaoh and queen must join; but to host Hatshepsut, Marissa will first have to die. Fate has given Jackson a profound choice: save Marissa from Menes’ plan or keep an entire species from the brink of extinction.



So...hi! First and foremost.... WHAT THE FUCK?! Honestly... this book took me FOREVER (nod towards book title) to get into, one of the more harder ones by Frank for me to really sink my teeth into, and then once I was into it... BAM! It's fucking OVER! This book wasn't even 9 hours long!!! Just shy, coming in at 8 hours and 56!!!!!!!!! minutes! Gah! This isn't typical of Frank, so if this is your first go 'round with her audiobooks (it sure isn't mine, I'm a Frank follower LOL!), have no fear, they generally aren't this... short and stout, yanno, like a flippin' tea pot! Ugh! So here we are with the 2nd book in her spin off of the Nightwalkers- the WORLD of Nightwalkers... it's supposedly to tie all the different "types" of Nightwalkers together, and I can just see that tiny itty bitty sparkle of that happening, but by gods, it's taking literally forever (another nod at the book title! *snort*) and it's almost painful in it's slowness! Hmmm, I would suggest to anyone to read her books very slowly and to draw them out because if you go at them like I have, devouring them, you'll be stuck craving MORE MORE MORE while poor Mizzzzz Frank is hustling and bustling trying to crank out book after book. (please don't burst my bubble in telling me she isn't hustling, OR bustling, because in my fantasy land authors are like mindless, heartless machines who only exist for our reading/listening pleasure!) So yeah. This takes place directly after the 1st book in this series did and moves along rather slowly until a huge door is slammed in your face saying NOPE! NO MORE! Bleh! Haven't had that feeling, well, ever, with a Frank book, so it was startling! I can see where it's going and I am looking forward to the next one, but by gods, I tell ya *shakes fist maniacally* it better not have an ending like this one! anyway... I just bought C.J. Roberts newest e-book, and even though I HATE reading, I have it loaded up on my tablet ready to completely engross my life, so off I go!!!! :D Soooo excited!

I gave Forever:

...though for that fucked up ending, it should have only gotten maybe 2 stars! Grrrr!!!



... next!
