    Forged. The World of Nightwalkers. Jacquelyn Frank Review from J

    Forged. The World of Nightwalkers. Jacquelyn Frank
    Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
    I read a Jaquelyn Frank novels a couple of years back but didn't gel with it. Seeing that she's a best selling author and not wanting to miss out on some good reads I decided it was time to try another of her books. Forged as the first in a new series sounded good one to read, I thought. I soon discovered though that I’d misread – and its actually the fourth in the series....my bad! It wasn't difficult to pick up though even though it's a very different world she's created, where there are lots of different types of supernaturals although few humans know of them.
    Gargoyles – they often get a bad press, described as being overly beast-like. Jacquelyn's are like that too, but its clear they also have a strong humanity about them and are in control of the beast side. Ahnvil has escaped capture, needs to return to his home with other supernaturals and his Touchstone – the stone that keeps him from being permanently stone - ASAP. He's badly injured though and luckily for him Kat finds him and tends to him. Through a series of events she accompanies him back to his home and the others.
    Ahnvil – he was a good, honest and loyal man, strong, sexy as hell but... irresistible brogue?? Well, his constant use of “doona” wasn't irresistible to me but very irritating. Its not the first time I’ve seen it written/used to describe a Scots accent but it grates..I know a few Scots but I’ve never heard one say “doona” and it actually irritated me so much it detracted from what he was saying. Sadly its a word he uses very often :( Apart from that though he was a good lead, strong, sexy and very Alpha. I understood Kat's reactions to his alpha control issues, I think most independent women would feel the same. Kat's had to become dependent on herself as she has a skin condition that limits her daytime activities, so she's become quite a loner and doesn't take kindly to Ahnvil's over protectiveness even though she understands it.
    Overall its an interesting story, clearly some of the plot carries on from earlier books, but the main one of introducing Kat and Ahnvil wraps up nicely. There's the usual supernatural activities, fights, spells, travel through supernatural means plus of course the idea of created Gargoyles that need their Touchstone to stay human. It was a fun read, but not one I’d re read and confirms that for me Jacquelyn is an excellent and very popular author but not one whose novels really appeal to me. Horses for courses again and everyone wanting different reads thankfully.
    The names...I have to comment. Ahnvil- really? And there's another character called Ihron...reminds me too much of the BDB novels and the awful names there – I still haven't got to reading them, put off by the twee play on words...but that's me :) and probably why I'm a reader not a writer.
    Stars: three and a half.
