Review: Adam by Jacquelyn Frank
Adam, Jacob's elder brother, who went missing 400 years ago and hasn't been seen since, so when he turns up at the precise moment he is needed it is a shock to everyone, especially the vampire bitch we all want to slap, Jasmine. After a brief encounter with him just before he disappeared she is left changed and wanting something she can't name. When he reappears, it seems she knows exactly what she has been missing for the last 400 years. Adam. Mean while, Ruth the corrupted and evil Mind Demon has been gathering an army of disenchanted Nightwalkers and is almost ready to strike a devastating blow on the Nightwalkers that will see them falling apart.
What I didn't like about this was very similar to what I didn't like about the other books. The romance. I found myself skipping pages or skimming through as I didn't have the patience to read a long drawn out love scene or listen to them having a deep converstaion about their feelings, I thought I would be safe from this with Jasmine, but clearly not even she can escape having an over dramatic heart to heart. But luckily in this one, although they are the couple in the book, they don't seem to be the focus.
The focus of the book is the fight with Ruth. I really like Ruth, she is one of the better bad guys in the PNR world, she truely is evil, I love it. And watching all the different races and couple come together and have one final confrontation with her was fantastic and what I have been reading for. I loved these parts of the books they were exciting and I couldn't wait to see what happened.
This series is a strange one for me, I continue reading them even though I know they will piss me off, but I can't seem to help myself! But this one is one of favourites of the series and if you have read the other books in the series you should read it just to see what happens with Ruth!
