Overview

Sometimes the only way to heal is to love...

When Colin Flynn returns home to Ireland, the immortal Night Walker is not the protector he had once been. Although his flesh has healed, the scars hide a broken spirit.

Juliana Duffy is a survivor. She owns a florist shop and continues to play piano in spite of her deafness. Her prophetic dreams warn her of coming death and show her the faces of two men: one a customer and one a handsome stranger.

After hearing her music, Colin finds himself drawn to this woman who refuses to be defined by her injury. As an ancient enemy emerges and threatens her safety, Colin will need to learn Juliana's secret to overcome his wounds, and regain his strength.

But falling for a mortal could be the greatest risk of all...

Lisa writes a story like no other! Her Nightwalker world is definitely one of a kind! I was thrilled Colin got his own book and Juliana was the PERFECT match for him. Her story is very touching and she helps Colin open his eyes and accept the things he cannot change. I want to say they are my favorite couple, but to be completely honest I love all the characters in this whole series equally! It's a definite must read

Night Angel is a part of the Night Walker series by Lisa Kessler, Juliana and Colin make the perfect pair, each has had their own trials to bear and they need each other. This story twists and turns and kept me reading on and on. I loved how Juliana faced life, accepting and moving on. Through her strength, Colin learned how to accept his handicap and how to truly live.   Another great book!

Night Angel is a novella in the Night Series by Lisa Kessler.  I could not put it down.  It takes place just after Night Demon Colin - Night Walker and God of the South had his upper left arm damaged by the Demon while in the Yucatan fighting him. He returned to his home in Ireland to not only recoup but to get a handle on his feelings. Centuries ago when he first settled in Ireland he fought a Water-horse called an Aughisky.  While in human form he is called Benedict. Juliana Duffy - Is a woman who runs a florist.  She lost her hearing years ago in a bombing, but can read lips. Juliana also has prophetic dreams.  She had dreamed of both Colin & Benedict before she even saw them.   Also in this dream she heard a Banshee wail. Colin is intrigued by how Juliana has coped with her loss of hearing and hope he can find out how she overcame the bitterness so he can.  Benedict wants Juliana and despises Colin.  Who will win the love of Juliana? If you are intrigued by this snippet I have shared, please read Night Anglel to see what happens between these 3 people.

This is the first book of the series that I've read and can be read as a standalone. Colin returns to Ireland injured and feeling sorry for himself. He meets Juliana, who is deaf due to an incident in her past. Despite her loss of hearing, she continues to play the piano because it makes her happy to "hear" the music through the vibrations. Colin is determined to find out how she was able to move forward with her life after such a loss, convinced it will help him heal and move on. In her dreams, Juliana sees two men, Benedict, a customer from her flower shop, and a stranger who ends up being Colin. She knows that their lives are intertwined and that there is danger for at least one of them. Benedict and Colin have been enemies for centuries, but now Benedict wants Colin gone and will do anything in his power to destroy him. I really enjoyed the novella, I must got back to read the first books in the series before the next book, Night Child is released. This book was received as a gift in exchange for an honest review.

A CAPTIVATING ADDITION TO LISA'S NIGHT WALKER SERIES!!!!!!                                                               This was a captivating addition to Lisa's Night Walker series! Night Walkers aren't vampires though they share some of the same characteristics as well as being Mayan gods AND shifters. All of her Night Walkers stories ROCK!  Night Angel is Colin's and Juliana's story. I'm so glad that Colin has gotten his own story, a tale of healing and love. Colin is our classic tortured hero having returned to Ireland a broken man after an altercation with a night demon. Juliana confuses and inspires him; She's a deaf pianist who is magically gifted and thriving despite the adversities she's suffered. He cannot understand how her disability has not disheartened her as his has him. The mystic emerald isle's idyllic peacefulness provides the perfect setting for the tale. When the picturesque landscape is disturbed by a sinister mythical villain who is preying on the villagers, Colin must find a way to stop him and save Juliana.  I was absolutely enthralled with the chemistry between Colin and Juliana... sexy, sweet and very romantic. Juliana is a very strong, independent woman and I greatly admired her spirit. Colin's despair was palpable as he felt helpless and a fraction of what he had been; My heart went out to him. The Celtic links enhanced the mystery and mystique. Lisa's writing just flows and she engages the reader with every word.  I would highly recommend this story - and all of the Night Walker books - to anyone who loves paranormal romances. Lisa's books are all must-reads for me.  5 STARS!

Whilst I have read and thoroughly enjoyed other books by this author but this is my first story from this series – and I have to say it was another great read from this highly talented author! It is a brilliant paranormal, shapeshifter novella with death, danger and destruction endangering any possibility of a ‘happily ever after’ ending. . . . Juliana Duffy runs the local flower shop. She was prevented from following her dream to be a concert pianist after an explosion left her deaf but she’s still a very positive character though her prophetic dreams are warning her of impending death and show both Colin and Benedict have a role to play in events – even before she has met either of them. Colin Flynn is a night walker, only able to go out at night, a hawk shapeshifter who feeds on blood and is a Mayan god with the job of protecting mortals. He has returned to his home in Ireland seriously injured after an encounter with a demon which left his left arm/wing seriously weakened so he can no longer fly. Whilst he was away an ancient foe has been gaining power and killing young women. Benedict is handsome, charming and regularly pops into Juliana’s shop to purchase five red roses. When Juliana meets both of her dream characters she’s unsure who is in danger or the roles they have to play. Should she trust either of them? To find out what happens you’ll just have to read it yourself! All the lead characters have their own difficulties to overcome for them to have any chance of achieving that much sought after HEA. They are so well characterised that it is easy to empathise and relate to them. This is a superb story of overcoming difficulties when the odds are stacked against you, staying positive and achieving your full potential in life and living. I really enjoyed it so will be looking out for other books in this series in future but will point out that this isn’t the first book in the series but still worked excellently as a standalone. I highly recommend this great novella to anyone who, like me, enjoys reading enthralling, well written, paranormal, romantic adventures!

So, only 86 pages on my Nook HD+. I know it is a novella but I think it was $2.99 or something. As it really does not deal with the story line we have been following I probably would have skipped it if I had noticed the length. That being said, I didn't notice so I will get to the review. I enjoyed the story. Colin was not a main character in the last story so I was interested to learn more about him. Not much history was told. A prologue detailing his history with the protagonist would have been nice and provided some background. But, it was a good story interesting plot and characters who would have been fabulous with a little fleshing out. I think it could have been a full length novel with not much tweaking. Worth the time to read, though. Very enjoyable.

4.5 Spirit Healing Emotion-Filled Stars Colin Flynn’s scars run deep. They not only mar his flesh, but have marked his soul and broken his spirit. Returning to Ireland to try and find a way to heal, Colin finds himself searching for anything to help him move past his pain. When he meets Juliana Duffy he thinks she may have the answers he is looking for to start the healing process… I just loved Colin and Juliana. Lisa Kessler has once again created characters that make you feel every emotion and struggle right along with them. Colin’s inability to move past his injury was heart-wrenching, but you felt that the spark of his spirit was still alive as he looked for a way to move past all that he had lost. Juliana was everything I love in a heroine – strong, willing to do whatever it takes to protect those that she loves, and smart enough to know her limitations. Although she too has suffered loss, she has found a way to move past it, accepting all in her life that she cannot change. Although this was only a novella in length, the pages are filled with a wonderful love story that had me captivated from the first page. The only complaint I have is that I would have loved to have had more detail regarding the rivalry between Colin, the Night Walker, and Benedict, the Water Horse – I think there was probably a wonderful back story to the history that is alluded to in the book, and I can only imagine what story could have been told in a full length novel. Don’t get me wrong, this book was wonderful – so wonderful that I just want more! Thank you Lisa Kessler for crafting a story that had me living and riding the emotions right along with your characters.

Don't miss out on this book, its a great and very important part of "Night Series" Happy reading and writing* Teresa

I really enjoyed this novella.  The main characters are, Colin and Julianne.  Colin is a Mayan vampire god, and Julianne is deaf and she  dreams that the banshee is coming to get her.  Actually, Benedict is their enemy.  They overcome much, even death, to be together.   Julianne shows Colin that he's whole, even with his injury that convinces him that he cannot help others again.  I am looking forward to reading the other Night Series books.
