Menes has risen.
After learning of his sister’s death. And her resurrection. Jackson Waverly was last seen being thrown landing on a windshield, which effectively ended his own life. In the world of Bodywalkers who come back from the ether, in exchange for life, Jackson agrees to be host of a pharaoh. Three weeks after the incident, Jackson knows it is time to quit his job. He can no longer be out in daylight. That point was brought home quite severely the night a child went missing. Knowing dawn was about to break, Jackson begged the sexy doctor, Marissa Anderson, to help. Minutes later, they are flying through lonely backroads to a safe place.
Jackson then recovers and heads directly to his best friends’ home to find utter destruction. Menes turns and finds his best friend Ramses along with Jackson’s sister, Docia, outside the home informing him he is in serious danger. A little late for that but another, more urgent problem arises.
Not knowing what to do, everyone heads to their home base to formulate a plan. Suddenly another danger lurks. Kamen arrives carrying Leo. And also carries a message in his heart of an upcoming slaughter of his own making.
In the midst of the love story between Jackson and Marissa, the plot thickens. Jackson is unsure if he or Menes is feeling the attraction. When Jackson realizes the truth, he does everything possible to convince Marissa she is his one and only and he wants no other. Except for the fact that Menes awaits the love of his life. And Marissa has been chosen to be her vessel.
A neat little story. While reading all the books in order does lessen the confusion, I personally would not try picking up this series now WITHOUT reading some of the previous books.
Here’s the next tale of the Nightwalkers.
