In the first century A.D., Mayan astronomers predicted the world would end on December 21, 2012. Modern scientists say dire solar flames and magnetic fluctuations will all occur on that exact day. In these final years before the End Times, demon creatures of the Mayan underworld-The Makols-have come to earth to trigger the apocalypse. But the Chajinal, descendants of the Mayan warrior-priests, have decided to fight back.

In Nightkeepers , a Makol uses a lost rite known as The Godkeeper to call a demon to earth. During the ritual, a sky god attempts to possess the demon's human sacrifice, a narcotics detective named Leah Ann Daniels. The rite is unsuccessful, but gives Leah magical powers, and strands the god between planes. Warned by a cryptic message from an ally, King Jaguar Striker arrives just in time to save Leah . . . but is exiled when he breaks Chajinal law. Leah and Striker must bond together to defeat the embodied demon and gain support of the Chajinal army-all before the next solstice, when another demon will try to pass through.

Nightkeepers combines Mayan astronomy and lore with modern, sexy characters for a gripping read. Fans of paranormal romance and urban fantasy will not want to miss Jessica Andersen's The Final Prophecy series!

This novel is absorbing. The characters in the book are ordinary people thrust into an extraordinary situation . They are not aware of their innate paranormal abilities. They are destined to become ‘night keepers’. Their latent talents are needed to prevent the ending of our world. Background is provided on each of the ‘night keepers’. . Strike was a character that was so easy to like, with his passion for a life that should have been his own, a love he wanted more then he wanted anything and determinations to be both the king that he was supposed to be--the king the Night keepers needed and his father once was--yet to also be someone else and be a different king all together. The love scenes are sizzling. However, this book provides lots of ‘meat and potatoes’. I highly recommend ‘Night Keepers’ to all lovers of paranormal fiction. I eagerly await the next installment titled “Dawn Keepers
