Adam is a warrior to the core and loyal to his people and family. Once charged with keeping his people safe, he's unsure of his new role in the future. He's able to adapt quickly but it doesn't really feel like home. Jasmine helps him feel more comfortable with the idea of this being his new home and time period in a way that no one else could. This helped Jasmine's character in my eyes because I've never been a real fan of hers. I think she's a bit selfish and rude, especially to the demons and her princes' mate. In this book, we learn there is more to her. Adam and Jasmine met at a time when vampires and demons were trying to kill each other and they both tried to fight their feelings for one another. They shared a few stolen moments and it affected Jasmine more than she cares to admit. Now all these years later she's fighting a losing battle with her emotions and it's showing a vulnerability to her I didn't really know existed. It made it easier to connect with her character to know she too has relationship troubles. I thought these two made a nice couple because it was more than hot sexual chemistry between them. They made the other stronger and together they're formidable team.
In Adam, the showdown between the treacherous demon Ruth and the rest of the Nightkeepers finally takes place. She has grown very powerful and even though Adam and Jasmine are both a force to be reckoned with, it takes some familiar faces to go up against Ruth and her minions. Noah, Jacob, Damien and more are back and it was great to see them all again. This is a series with some memorable characters and reading about them again was like reconnecting with an old friend. I was so glad to see that they were all in this book.
For fans of Jacquelyn Frank's Nightwalker series, Adam has been a long time coming and I think fans if the series will be pleased with this book. The story involving Ruth is finally revisited and has explosive results. The action was satisfying but the drama involving Adam and his relationship with Jasmine is the reason I had a hard time putting this book down. The one big issue I had with this book was all the different point of views. I felt it added some confusion to the story that could have been avoided. Other than that, Adam is a wonderful paranormal romance experience that fans will enjoy. I highly suggest if you want to read this book you go back and start with book one because you'll miss a lot of important events and back story.
Like for instance in the last half of the book, there is this mysterious girl in it with black and gray hair, and she is refered to as being a demon, but it is never known as to who she was, or for that matter who her parents were. The ending left much to be desired. There was no mention of weather syreena ever had a child, or what it looked like, there was no mention of what happned to every else that mattered. and there were no good emotional words between the two brothers that met each other for the first time.
despite all of that, it is still an excelent book and well worth reading. I do hope that Jacquelyn Frank is not finished with the nightwalkers series. I would love to see at least one more book for that series, maybe sometime in the future about the kids and how it all turned out for them, or even a book for the saucy minx with grey and black hair. There is still so much she could do with the series. what with the two new elements that she added with Seth and Leah. It was never even really touched apon how seth's power worked. With all of these posibilites hopefully we will have a least one or two more books for ths series to look forward to, after all, ruth is not dead, just mearly trapped.
It's been 3 long years since the last book in the Nightwalkers series came out, Noah, so to say I was eagerly anticipating this newest release, Adam, is an understatement. The epilogue had me ready to throw the book out the window - an HEA for one past couple is ripped away in the first few pages and once I calmed down enough to think about it, I knew there had to be another explanation as to what was going on in this world. Also, had I taken the time to skim through Noah again, I might have remembered a few key details about the 2 young children born into this world during the series, and maybe I'd have been better able to have handled that crazy prologue.
Our leads are Jasmine, who we got to know very well in Damien's book. She's his right hand woman; they've known each other and been best of friends for hundreds of years. She was a bit unlikable early on, I especially didn't like the way she treated Damien's mate, Syreena, but I always figure there's much more than meets the eye with supporting characters, so I was curious to get her POV. The hero is Adam, Jacob's brother, who's been gone for 400 years and believed to be dead. He's back through a series of events that happen during the first third of the book.
Leah, Jacob and Bella's daughter, is the primary point of view that starts the book off, and my favorite part of the entire story happens in the first 100 pages. The timeline almost becomes a supporting character as it plays a huge role in realigning all the characters for the second part of the story. But early on, I loved getting to see the scenes between a young Adam and Jacob that took place 400 years ago. It's during this time that Adam is the Enforcer and Jacob has zero plans or desires to ever take over for Adam if that time were to come. They banter back and forth, spar like only brothers can, and it shows how much they really care about one another. It also sheds more light on just how hard it must have been for Jacob when Adam disappeared for those 400 years. Adam meets a female vampire who's just woken up from her death sleep and is drawn to her like no one he's ever met before. But it's a time when his people and the vampires are at war and to feel anything other than hate for the vampires is a big no-no. They have sparks, but other than a brief moment of touch, they don't get any closer. I really loved getting to see Adam, Jacob and Jasmine during this time, but Leah and her amazing, and really scary ability, impacts Adam hugely and he's ripped from his world and reconnected with Jacob, Noah and all his people in the book's present.
Where this story started lacking for me as it went on was the lead relationship. Not a lot of time is given to Adam and Jasmine. The majority of their page time together is spent dealing with Adam's reaction to the present, which is pretty funny, but also hunting down the horrible Ruth. We get the idea that these two are mates and the imprinting is happening between them, but with everything else that's going on around them and the constant point of view switching, they get lost in the shuffle a bit. From the parts with them that we get, and they do have a bit more time towards the end which include some sweet scenes, I really did enjoy them as a couple, I just wanted more.
I've mentioned the abundance of characters we get caught up with, and it's a lot. I lost track of how many actually get page time and their POV's told. It was great seeing all our past favorites again, and learning what's going on with them and how they're involved with the big fight that was building up the entire book with Ruth.
I feel like I need to give the book two ratings. The first third of the book was fantastic, I was fully engaged in the story and couldn't wait to see where everything was heading, easily 4 stars. The pace really slowed down in the middle and it lost some of the oomph that the beginning had, so my overall rating is 3 1/2 stars. It's a nice read, but I don't feel like I fully got Adam and Jasmine's story. It got a bit lost with everything else that was going on, and while they had some hot scenes together (Adam gets very creative with his shifting into water ability!) I really needed and wanted more scenes for them.
Blog Rating: 3.5/5 stars
It was an great ride, with tragedy and pitfalls, but constant hope for a preferable twist of fate to arise and wash away the taint of Ruth and her minions.
I first picked up the pb of Jacob years ago and in July I re-entered the Nightwalker world again with the audio version. After finishing Jacob I continued the rest of the series and was intrigued with Jacob's missing brother Adam. Finding out that there was only 5 books and as far as many knew that was all to the series. I'm very happy with the authors break from the series, (I know I didn't wait as long as many others) but this book was by far the best in the series for me.
Reading some of the other reviews, I can understand some confusion is possible with out having read the series in order, but I thought it was a strong story on it's own. Not a lot of rehashing of what's happened before but revisiting characters and different characters point of views could confuse some.
