Pages: 266 in Paperback, Published by Entangled

Night Walker is about Calisto Terana and Kate Bradley.  Calisto was a priest 250 years ago, while Kate was a Kumeyaay Indian.  They fell in love and Kate got pregnant.  Calisto decides to leave the priesthood but an overzealous has Kate killed, so Calisto becomes a Night Walker in order to have a second chance at loving Kate. 

250 years later, Kate leaves Reno after discovering her fiance was cheating on her.  She meets Calisto, and is determined to not get involved with anyone.  She finds herself drawn to Calisto, and eventually they get together.

The mysterious Fraternidad Del Fuego Santo want to prevent Kate becoming a Night Walker, and will stop at nothing to do so.  However, their attempt at preventing it threatens to destroy the relationship they have, but it fails, resulting in Kate becoming a Night Walker in order to save her life.

I really liked the book.  I was rather surprised that there was a paranormal romance for adults, since that seems to be something usually associated with 15-year-old girls.  But all the same, it was an enjoyable read. 

One thing I absolutely loved was the fact that it’s set in San Diego!  The Gaslamp Quarter was mentioned several times, as was the Mission de Alcala.  The beach was also a pretty common location.  The fact that I live in the place that the novel is set in really brought it to life since I could picture all of these places so well.  Okay, part of it is set in Reno, but that’s just a blip on my radar.

I liked the characters, but Kate was irritating at times, with her whole thing about not wanting to get involved with someone but getting involved with someone anyway.  Calisto was interesting, especially where the Fraternidad is concerned.  They were definitely mysterious, and I really wanted to know more about them. 

I give it a 4 out of 5.  Definitely intriguing, and I can’t wait to see who was watching them at the end of the novel.  I can’t wait for the next book!
