This book is the first in a series called Nightwalkers, which focuses on Demons. I could not put this book down, it was riveting. This book is joining my "keep" pile.
Jacob is the Enforcer for his people, demons. He keeps the demons in check, against their lust for humans. He is immune to the curse of the moon and forbidden desires. Until he meets, and rescues Isabella, a human.
Due to events that occur the night they meet, Jacob brings Isabella into his world as he believes it is part of her destiny and demons destiny alike. Isabella is a warm and funny woman from New York City, who is more than willing to help the demons. As time continues Jacob attempts to fight the attraction to Isabella, as she is forbidden to him.
As Isabella spends more time with Jacob, she begins to change, until they learn the truth of her identity. Through the old scrolls, Isabella learns that the Demon world is on the brink of change and that she is indeed a part of their destiny, as they are her destiny.
The Demon world is changing forever, as they remember it, and Isabella and Jacob are the first story of this change. The author has the ability to pull you into the book and you learn to love demons. The main characters are funny and intelligent and the secondary characters are so wonderfully written about, that you can not wait to read their story. I can not wait until the next book comes out in May 2007, called Gideon.
Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers -- the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer....
