Review: Nightwalker by Lisa Kessler


Title: Night Walker

Author: Lisa Kessler

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publisher: Entangled Publishing

Blurb: He gave up his soul for a second chance to love her…

Two and a half centuries ago, Calisto Terana lost everything when a zealous priest murdered the woman he loved. Now, desperate for another chance to love her, he wants redemption for the mistake that cost her life.

She’s haunted by dreams of her own death…

After catching her fiance with another woman, Kate Bradley returns to San Diego to clear her head. The last thing she needs is romance, but after meeting Calisto she’s drawn to him in ways she doesn’t understand.

They’ve waited in the shadows for centuries…

Calisto has no doubt Kate is the reincarnation of his lost love, but the Fraternidad Del Fuego Santo has a new watcher with dark ambitions of his own. As old enemies reemerge and a new threat arises, the betrayal that enslaved Calisto to the night might destroy the only woman he’s ever loved again.

Review:  A love that ended far too quickly in one time has a chance to begin in another. Night Walker is the story of revenge, redemption, second chances, and reincarnation. The characters are portrayed beautifully in Night Walker, which enables readers to connect with them.  The writing is entertaining, smooth, and Ms. Kessler's voice is just stunning. A mix of paranormal, suspense, and the romance blends together quite well to create a book that is not easy to put down. 

Calisto is intriguing and the tragedy he endures makes my heart ache for him. I rooted for his character to finally get some peace, and hoped for his happy ending.  He'd been through so much in his long life, how could any more despair be brought upon him?

Kate is at a crossroads, and she's got so much to deal with. Add on this strange character that she's drawn to despite her doubts and you've got quite a spark.  I also hoped for Kate to finally get the good she deserves as well.

Nightwalker is a fantastic book. It hooks readers in and doesn't want to let go.
