Adam 4.3 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 196 reviews.

I really enjoyed this book and found it to be one of my favorite Jacquelyn Frank books. I was very excited to see many of my favorite Nightwalker and Shadowdwellar characters making an appearance in Adam. Because of this, I would recommend reading this series in order to familiarize yourself first with her other great characters for full affect and enjoyment. A lot happens in the beginning of Adam that took me by surprise and had me wondering about the future of the Nightwalkers. I found Adam's story held many exciting twists and characters that had me anxious to see what was going to happen from one page to the next. There was one especially heart tugging moment on page 293 that brought tears to my eyes. I love where Jacquelyn Frank's creative and brilliant writing took us in this book and look forward to hearing more about some of it's characters in the future. I can't wait to see what Ms. Frank has in store for us next.

Let me start off by saying that THE NIGHTWALKERS series was my first paranormal romance series. I fell in love with this series and became totally hooked and awaited every release. I was so upset when I heard "Noah" was the last book. So, imagine my surprise (and everyone else's) when I found out 3 years later that Jacki was writing another NIGHTWALKERS book, Woo Hoo!!. Even bigger surprise was when I (and Michelle) were offered an ARC of "Adam" and an opportunity to review it! (I was squeeing for days, and I am still am). But the big question was, after 3 years, could Jacki make this Nightwalker book as amazing as the original five books? The answer...YES SHE CAN!!! Jacki is a literary genius! To review this book without giving away spoilers is VERY difficult so I cannot give you many details, just my overall take on the book. Once you read the story you will understand why. With THE NIGHTWALKERS being one of my favorite series and the characters so close to my heart, I almost did not want to read the book anymore when I finished the prologue. I was outraged, in total disbelief, cursing and crying my eyes out and like I said, this was all BEFORE the first chapter. Something horrible happens that leaves the NIghtwalker world (and readers) devastated and heartbroken. The rest of the book was just as incredible, a complete rollercoaster ride of emotions and events. My biggest concern was how is Jacki going to bring back Adam after he'd been missing for over 400 years? No one had a clue as to what happened to him. He just disappeared one day and was never heard from again and was assumed dead. She surprised me how she played out the reappearance of Adam and I was not let down at all. We also get to find out exactly what happened to Adam the day he disappeared. Adam is the epitome of the alpha male. He is proud, arrogant and the most powerful water demon in existence. I liked that we got to see Adam a bit vulnerable in this book due to his circumstances. We also got to see glimpses of Adam and Jacob when they were younger, interacting with their parents and each other, as well as a younger Noah. Jasmine, as always, is a tough as nails vampire. As an immortal she gets bored easily with her long life and likes to go to ground for time to pass. Jasmine is intrigued by Adam from the moment she meets him because Adam makes her feel, which is a first for Jasmine. Adam and Jasmine's chemistry was sizzling. From the moment they met, they felt an instant attraction and were drawn to each other. You can feel their chemistry coming off the pages. Throughout the book, Ruth, a powerful mind demon and her psychopath vampire mate Nicodemous, are back and more powerful than ever, wreaking havoc amongst the Nightwalkers. No one is strong enough to defeat the both of them together. Their only hope is Adam. Now that he is back, he might just be powerful enough to destroy them both. Another part of the book that I loved was that we got to see all of the previous Nightwalkers that we all fell in love with. We got to see the Enforcers, Jacob and his mate Isabella, along with their daughter Leah. Gideon and Legna, as well as their son, Seth. Elijah and his mate, the Lycanthrope Queen, Sienna also made an appearance, as well as Damien, the Vampire Prince and his mate Princess Syreena. We also got to see Noah, the Demon King and his mate Kestra. I also think the way Jacki left things off, that we

First off, within the first 20 pages I was calling my mother at midnight crying. I wanted to fling my Nook across the room and I was cursing Jacquelyn. I was shocked at how "broken" and "devestated" my heart felt. I only kept reading because I was so angry! The book turned out amazing!! So, much happened with these characters that I have come to love and feel as if they are a part of my family. Then to throw Adam into the mix....what an addition! It took me a day and a half to read this and my emotions were on end the whole time. I think I could sleep for days now that the stress is over. Jacquelyn is truely a talented author to pull those kinds of emotions out of people. I do hope she writes another book. She did leave it open for one.

Ms. Frank has another winner. She puts the reader's emotions through the wringer with this one. I LOVE this series and hope she will continue it, bringing in the next generation.

I almost put the book down when Bella & Jacob died. I couldn't see a nightwalker world without them. Glad I didn't cos i would have missed the best part of the book.

Adam was amazing! Though the author didn't completely closed some points I would have liked to see close, she did amazing. The way Adam comes to being in the book is just mind blowing. I will let you know, even if the start is tear jerking, don't stop reading! It get to good you will miss something precious. I love Leah here, I love Jasmine and Adam was so good for her<3 I love the emotions, the mysterious characters. It was so lovely, please read the WHOLE serie. I loved seeing here all character from previous books, it was truly lovely to read♥
