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.

5/5 stars

Loved this book, the second in the Bodywalker series. It picked up just a couple weeks after the first book, Forbidden, left off. I liked Jackson from the beginning and was excited that he got his own book, but he had such a strong presence and an unwavering sense of duty that he had to get his own book. Marissa was great too. The attraction they had for each other was like a living breathing thing that exploded off the page. I can't wait til the next book to see where they're headed in this war that they are caught up in and see how along with Ramses, Docia and Leo they fight this new enemy.

I've loved pretty much every book the very talented Ms. Frank has written and I'm glad to see that this series continues with Leo's story. I'm also really curious to see if the characters from the other Nightwalkers will pop up in any future books since they read the prophecy too. I tried reading this book before I had read Forbidden and didn't think I would've had problems with it, but quickly set it aside to read Forbidden first. Glad I did so that I had a better understanding about how the Bodywalkers worked. Highly recommend this series.
