Night Walker by Lisa Kessler

Night Walker
Lisa Kessler

Night Walker was a pleasant roller coaster of emotions and anticipations for me. I found from the very first page I could not put the book down. Lisa as an author showed her talent as a writer keeping the reader in suspense, not knowing which direction her characters were going in. I felt she portrayed her character well, and they felt very real to me. I felt the tension, passion, and terror they experienced throughout the book.

I was pleased to find my favorite type of character 'the vampire' portrayed in a different light with Night Walker. Calisto didn't consider himself the a vampire the way society view them today. I really couldn't see a lot of difference but it was nice seeing Calisto reference himself in a different category and put a different light on it. I felt when he had to tell his eternal love Kate what he was, she took the news easier the way he described it because she felt also that he was  the 'A typical' vampire.

Take a ride on an emotional roller coaster with Kate and Calisto, a love that has expanded over the centuries, for Calisto who by not wanting to let his eternal love of his beloved Tala go so easily with her death. He sought out the 'Old One' for answers to his broken heart. Was Calisto, then Gregorio, prepared for what the Old One was about to do in order for him to be with Tala once again even if it were centuries away? Find out how Gregorio became Calisto and why. How he found Tala once again in his beloved Kate. What terror out there threatens the very existence of his beloved Kate/Tala once again? Will fate repeat itself?
