Review: Forsaken by Jacquelyn Frank

New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank continues her scorching and sensual new series set in the world of the Nightwalkers, where alluring entities known as Bodywalkers are the vanguards against the raging forces of darkness.

As a mercenary, Leo Alvarez has signed on for a lot—but he never signed on for his best friend becoming host to the soul of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. Jackson is now inhabited by a Bodywalker, and Leo is forced to grapple with a realm of supernatural beings far more dangerous than anything he’s ever encountered.

But when Jackson is wounded by an attack from a demon god, Leo must team up with another supernatural creature—a Night Angel—to save his friend from utter destruction. With skin as black as midnight, hair as white as snow, and a body of pure perfection, the Night Angel arouses a burning desire in Leo, even as he refuses to be intimidated by her power—or the power of those who would destroy his friend. An unusual alliance is forged, electrified by sexual temptation, and together the two must unite their strengths to bring down a supreme evil.

OMG I love Leo. He is a bad ass ex special ops mercenary.. But he lands in a world outside anything he's every known and at first he is outgunned but not outclassed. But in his book he is retaught a lesson that he knew but I think with everything that happened to him he forgot for a minute. He learned that no people is bad or evil and that there are good in bad in all kinds of folks. He just had the misfortune to run into one of the most evil and conniving of  the Nightwalkers race. When he is forced to team up with a Night Angel he wasn't happy about it but he begins to trust her and much more. And he learns that even though he's only human he can be a help and not a hindrance to his friends/family. He actually goes up against the baddest of the Nightwalkers, The Wraiths, who are the Nightwalkers bogeyman. They can kill Nightwalkers with a singe touch. And he won and was able to retrieve his goal.
This book introduced to other characters and I am looking forward to each of their books. I really enjoyed this one so far in this series.
I give this one 4 stars and was given this one via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
