Night Walker (The Night Series #1)
Genre: Paranormal Romance
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.
It started off slow and I didn’t get fully interested in the read until Calisto really came into the picture with Kate, around the time he gave her ex Tom a well deserved beating. I loved the story of the read, how Calisto/Gregorio gave up his soul to become immortal and wait for his lost love to return again after she was brutally taken from him by someone he thought he could trust, waiting for as long as it took for her to return. The twist of Kate having dreams of her past and her death was a brilliant angle as well and how everything fell into place in time and nothing felt rushed as Kate figured out the truth of her past and the life she once had.
I wanted to smack Calisto upside the head with what he did after Kate revealed to him why she had been sick, even though he did it to try and prevent the past repeating itself and for her to live a long happy life, but come on man! That was beyond harsh. I am excited to see where this series goes from here and it has the potential to be something very intriguing. I would give this read three and a half stars.
