Jacquelyn Frank - Noah

Noah, the King of the demons has always been in control of his powers, but lately he feels restless. Family and friends close to him found their mates and are settling down, but his need to find his mate is becoming almost unbearable. With Samhain just around the corner, Noah feels the need and he knows he is no exception to the rules. If he fails and cross the line, he knows he has to deal with his enforcers Jacob and Bella. But Noah cannot ignore the dreams he has lately of his mate, although he doesn’t know who or where she is, he knows she is the one for him. The only way to save his mate life is to break some rules and risks almost the life of his precious little godchild, who happens to possess the power to do it.

Kestra Irons has a dangerous job but she loves it, she has spent most of her life on her own. Lately she is having dreams about an unknown gorgeous man and doesn’t know what to think of it. But when her last job turn into a bloodbath, this mysterious man shows up and takes her away from her home and country. She is grateful that he save her life, but she is not buying all those stuff about life mates and powers, so Kestra fight him with everything she’s got.

But Noah doesn’t give up that easily, so he has to convince her that they were meant to be together and he needs her and her newfound power to stop a threat that comes from the inside.

Noah by Jacquelyn Franks is the fifth novel in her Nightwalker series. Just like the previous novels I love the way Jacquelyn Frank mingles the different species together with danger and romance.

From the beginning of this series I was anxious to read King Noah’s story, but it was not quite what I hoped for. Noah is a fire demon, one of the highest and strongest of their kind, but I didn’t quite saw that in this novel. I love the fact that Noah did everything in his power to get to his mate and his determination to convince her that they belong together. I also love the fact that Noah accepted the punishment Bella gave him for using her little daughter in his game, even though he knew it would break his heart.
I have to agree that Kestra was indeed the right woman for Noah, one who matches to him in strength, power and especially her stubbornness. She is a strong woman with a mind of her own and isn’t afraid to say what is on her mind.

Together with the rest of the Nightwalkers they fight yet another threat to their kind, but I missed the biggest threat of all, which we saw from the beginning of this series. We all know Ruth is the traitor among the demon kind and she is determined to destroy Noah, but where was she in this novel. Especially because this novel should have been the last in this series and I was waiting for a confrontation between Noah and Ruth. The good news is that there will be another novel in this series and Jasmine is the leading lady, so hopefully the Ruth situation will be resolve then.

I believe the two strongest secondary characters where Jacob and his mate Bella. They both stole my heart from the beginning and in this novel Bella show herself to be the enforcer she is, but most of all the protected mother. The way she handle Noah after his little game, where he used her daughters powers to do the job really put a smile on my face.

Although this novel is not the best in this series I still am a huge fan of Jacquelyn Frank and her Nightwalkers. I’m looking forward to Jasmine’s novel and I’m curious to see who will deal with Ruth and her followers.
