Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers--the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law. Jacob, the Enforcer ... For 700 years he has resisted temptation. But not tonight ... Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them and they fall prey to their lust for humans. He's heard every one and still brought the trespassers to justice. Immune to forbidden desires, uncontrollable hungers, or the curse of the moon, his control is total ... until the moment he sees Isabella on a shadowy New York City street. Saving her life wasn't in his plans. Nor were the overwhelming feelings she arouses in him. But the moment he holds her in his arms and feels the soft explosion of her body against his, everything changes. Their attraction is undeniable, volatile, and completely against the law. Suddenly everything Jacob has ever believed is inflamed by the heat of desire ... Bring on the night.… (mer)

Since I started out this series thinking for some odd reason the Damien was the first book, I had read that first. So I decided better start from the beginning, and well so I did and it put some things into perspective, and I understand some things a little more now like a little but more on Ruth. But this book was very enjoyable to read. Books like me is the reason I lo e books so much, that with all the crap that can go on in and outside a relationship they always manage to work things out ( )

Jacob is the Demon Enforcer, he protects humans from demons that succumb to madness. He meets Bella during a hunt. After she kills a summoned demon he takes her with him to discover why she is so unusual. Interesting world where Nightwalkers are more in tune with the Earth and human necromancers are evil. Some things seem to easy but it was an interesting take on demons.

This book started out very slow for me. I have actually been fighting a sinus infection/ear infection all week with extreme sinus pressure, so I haven't been staying awake long enough to really dig in deep. So the first few chapters went slow for me. I didn't understand some of the stuff, because i hadn't been introduced to the world yet. You don't learn about the world in depth until after Isabella is interrupted with Jacob, "for her own good/saftey," and the king (Noah), the kings sister (Magdalegna) Elijah the Warrior Captain, and of course Jacob (after he calmed down some) explained their world to her.

Their world being that they are Nightwalkers, one of many night dwelling races. Vamps, weres exsist, but Isabella is dealing with none other than Demons! But these aren't the normal demons that you think of. No, these demons are demons of the elements, knowledge, sophistication, and pride. Each demon has a element skill that their "magic" is based off of. And only one. Jacob is an Earth demon. Noah, the king, is Fire. Magdalegna is a Mind demon. The mind is considered an element. Gideon is a Body demon ( yes, another element). And the warrior camptain, Elijah's element is Wind. Earth and Fire demon's are suppose to be the super rare types.

One of the things I REALLY enjoyed about this book, was the constant banter and humor. I would tell my husband scenes that would cause me to chuckle and he didn't get it. I think I just understood the humor very well. But between Jacob and Isabella, the poking fun at each other was absolutely awesome. I LOVED IT.

"So much for the calm, cool, collected Enforcer who struck terror into the hearts of Demons everywhere." Isabella------ I loved this scene!

"The Enforcer, in the Demon world, was what mothers used to scared their children into good behavior." There is only one enforcer, and that's Jacob. So basically, when he does his duty, he has ruffled some feathers along the way that he can't help, because it's part of his duty. Since one of the main problems is the fact that before the full moon of Beltane in the spring and Samhain in the autumn, those holidays held Hallowed by the Demons, they were also the center of the demons curse. These times cause an animalistic urge in the male and female Demons making them want to mate with anyone and anything. It is against the law to try and mate with humans though. So Jacob is the one who goes and punishes people for trying to "harm" humans by mating with them, when their base instinct is uncontrollable.

In comes the human who rattles the Demon world. Isabella, or Bella, is part druid, which is the only type of human that was meant to be mates for Demons. The truth is in the scrolls that Bella discovers, in her quest for answers. Apparently, Demons were never meant to mate amongst themselves, but with Druids. But there was a huge war years ago that caused the Demons to kill off all the Druids, but apparently not because Bella is part druid. So obviously some went into hiding. These druids had some powers of their own. Immortal just like the Demons, but in Bella's case other powers as well. She basically can nullify people near here. But with the centuries of Druid's breeding with human, it cause what use to be one special ability mutate into something more. In Bella's case, not only can she nullify people but she can totally JACK their power and use it against them.

On top of all this, Jacob and Bella, begin to have this whole telepathy thing which is absolutely HILARIOUS to me during the hike scene. Where he's got to hike while carrying her, and the whole time she's sending him mental images. HE HE HE!!

I would totally recommend this book to anyone! I loved it. The demons to me weren't really demons that much. More like sexy elemental people. :P


********************************************************************************************

"Jacob the Enforcer belongs to one of the many Nightwalker races that thrive on the dark of night. He has a job to do for his species and it's rather straightforward. He polices his people. During the full moon their animal urge to mate overcomes them, and if they stay within their race they never need to encounter the Enforcer. But if they cross the line and turn their lust to another species...say humans...it's Jacob's duty to prevent them and then to punish them severely for it. As this 'madness' grows worse and worse for his people, there is hardly a family who hasn't felt the brutal sting of Jacob's justice. Punishment is so dire and so feared, Jacob can call very few others his friend and the life the Enforcer leads is a very solitary one.

Then one night during a hunt for one of his own, he encounters the first human woman who will tempt him in all of his 622 years of life. Isabella is a simple Bronx gal who works at her local library, lives with her sister and owns a cat.

She hardly expects a night of moongazing to change her life forever and send her falling for a man like Jacob in all kinds of outrageous ways. Heck, she certainly doesn't expect that he isn't exactly a 'man'... although he sure looks like one, smells like one and boy-oh-boy does he feel like one!

As for the Enforcer, Jacob finds himself tempted beyond reason, needing Isabella to the point that he begins to strain against every law he has always upheld.

But before long the couple finds themselves fighting for their lives against evil, Jacob's bretheren, and even their own desires for each other. How can they find the way to resist one another before Jacob faces his own punishments...or before Bella ends up dead, torn up from the animal passion inside of him that she, as a human, is too frail to ever endure?"

Taken from Jacquelyn Frank's site since it's a perfect description of the book, but with my added thoughts along the way:P ( )

Jacob is the demon king's Enforcer and protects their laws and unfortunately he's had kill many of his people demons. It's illegal for any of his people found consorting with humans but when he meets the heroine, he finds himself torn between his beliefs and his growing feelings for the tiny woman.
It was a nice book. I loved Jacob's animatict nature and possessiveness of his mate though I did think he went a little overboard in the beginning. He truly was obsessed with her and even threatened his King when the female noticed the other males body. As the story went on, he calmed down a bit and after he mated with her he wasn't so possessive to the point of insanity. The other thing I didn't like was the fact that regardless of how tiny the heroine was, suddenly because she's a druid she can kick a 250 pound mans ass. It was unrealistic to cast her as a 2nd enforcer. Other than that I was very fond of this first book in the series. ( )
