Forsaken: The World of Nightwalkers by Jacquelyn Frank

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.

This was my first book of this series. I did not realize it was a series when I decided to read it. I was able to read this and not feel like I was lost because I had not read the previous books. I like the author's style and her ability to make you feel like you can "see" the surroundings. I really like all the characters and felt like I knew and understood them even though I had not read the previous books. I love that  they had three nightwalker species!The Night Angels, The Wraiths and the Mystics. I enjoyed the Night Angels the best. I also have to say it was nice to have a person of color in a Paranormal Book. I thought that Faith and Leo were great together, the chemistry was hot and even though their senses may have been heightened after they were bonded; there was an attraction there as soon as they met.

This book however was truly good.The characters were well thought out, likable, and believable. They had adventures, fun, disasters, and of course, Romance. Pretty much like normal people have relationships, just with a twist. Jacquelyn Frank has written a winner.
