BOOK REVIEW...[ARC] Forever (The World of Nightwalkers, #2) by Jacquelyn Frank

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.
Expected publication: May 28th 2013 by Ballantine Books

This was an interesting read. Although I do confess that I had not read the first book in the series before coming into "Forever," I had no trouble trying to figure out the whole jest of the world that Jacquelyn Frank has created.

SO BASICALLY: Jackson Waverly, a police officer, dies and is brought back to life with the catch that he now has to share his body with that of another entity, Egyptian pharaoh Menes.

Menes, who longs to reunite with his love Queen Hatshesut, searches for a body that his long lost love can dwell in WHILE JACKSON ON THE OTHER HAND meets Dr. Marissa Anderson and sparks fly between the both of them.

How will things turn out for Jackson and Marissa while Menes has still his own agenda and an ancient evil appears to threaten the lives of our heroines??

My thoughts:
I really liked "Forever." It was refreshing, fun, and captivating. I thought the whole Jackson/Menses debacle was balanced and handled very well.

I also liked the plot, the characters, and the pacing of the story. Very nicely done.

Over all, great book!

My Rating:

-Overall : 9
-Plot : 8
-Writing : 8.5
-Characters : 8
-Cover : 8
