#Review: Night Child – Lisa Kessler
Muriah La Deaux’s life has never been that normal. She’s aware of the Night Walker world, and does everything possible to maintain their secrets. Granted, not many would understand the why of it, but that fact doesn’t really matter to her. As long as Lukas and his friends remain safe that’s all that matters.
Muriah’s life takes an unexpected turn when her lover is soon murdered. Though she’s not quite sure as to why someone would do such a thing, she begins to wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that she deals in finding lost relics. Richard was an avid customer of hers who enjoyed buying priceless artifacts. Taking that into account, plus the fact that someone now seems to be interested in her, she’s no longer sure as to what is up or down.
Determined to make sense out of the situation, Muriah puts her trust in Lukas’ hands. When it becomes apparent that the random occurrences are somehow tied to the immortal child, she soon realizes that she’s in way over her head. An old foe of the Night Walkers’ is determined in having his due, and he knows she’s somehow the key in getting what he wants. If she’s to succeed in thwarting his every advance, she’ll need to trust the Night Walkers’ and their every intention. Most especially that of the newcomer, Issa.
Though she’s not prepared for what’s to come, there’s one thing Muriah can’t deny–her attraction to the brooding Issa. There’s something about him that draws her to him. Something that makes her want him with every step they take. Part of her knows she should leave well enough alone. She has a job to do, and she can’t let her heart rule over her head. Sadly, that’s easier said than done. Most especially when the two of them are in such close proximities wherever they go.
I first came across the Night series awhile ago when Lisa first wrote the Night Thief. Though I haven’t read the second book in the series (I’m about to remedy that, though), I confess that this book also stands on its own. It does touch base on things that occur in the first two books, so if you haven’t read either yet, you might want to. I look forward to what comes next for the Night Walkers. This is honestly a series you’ll want to keep your eye on.
Tagline: Love is the ultimate sacrifice…
Book Synopsis: A psychic gift…
Muriah La Deaux’s latest job requires her to locate an ancient codex detailing a prophecy of an immortal birth. But before she can deliver it, her client is brutally murdered. Now a man with chaos in his eyes wants the codex she’s hiding.
An immortal child…
Issa is one of the original Night Walkers, a proud protector of the mortal world. Now, when the survival of his entire race rests on protecting an unborn child, Issa is the only immortal strong enough to protect Muriah on a risky mission—locate the lost scrolls that will trap their foe—but his tenuous grasp on his sanity is slipping.
